I’ve been tagged. (Again.)

Well everyone, it’s happened again. I’ve been caught in another game of blog tag and for the sake of silliness and Wacky Wednesdays, I’m going to participate. Thanks, Rohan!

So here we go. First, post the rules. I’ll do it as I go (and that’s in bold).

Second, post a photo of yourself and eleven random facts about you. (What is it with the number eleven in these blogging games?)

This is me and my brother Ben when I graduated!

And for the facts…

1. I have a multi-colored frog sand beanie sitting on my computer. His name is Elyan Riddles.

2. My room is currently in serious need of cleaning.

3. Right now I have a nauseating headache. I hope it goes away soon!

4. I enjoy doing laundry. I wish I could be doing laundry right now.

5. I have a compulsive need to point out any wildlife I see while driving or riding in the car.

6. My brother Ben and I wrote a song called “The Dragonlord” inspired by BBC’s Merlin.

7. Not that I want to hurt anyone, but I have this secret desire to punch someone in the face like they do in the movies, just to see what it feels like.

8. Spontaneous dancing happens frequently at my house, especially when my brother Ben is around.

9. I love snail mail. Letters, cards, postcards, drawings – if I can mail it, I’ll do it!

10. Yesterday my boyfriend and I had a debate about who had a bigger library – Superman or The Doctor. (We decided on the Doctor – his TARDIS has infinite space and he has books from the past and future – bit of an advantage over Superman).

11. I think I am in denial about my fear of mice. (Because it’s irrational!)

Third, answer the questions given by the tagger. (Rohan always comes up with something interesting…)

  1. What’s your favorite toe? Do I have to have a favorite? I’m fond of all my toes, because they’re crooked and funny shaped.
  2. When is the last time you ate a piece of toast? This past Sunday.
  3. Can I have a hug? Absolutely!
  4. How long is a piece of string? That depends on who is cutting it.
  5. How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man? That depends – how old is the man and what has he experienced in his life?
  6. Are these questions annoying? Maybe.
  7. What’s your favorite video game? I don’t play video games often enough to have a favorite.
  8. What did you have for breakfast…4 days ago? Strawberries.
  9. Do you live withing 15 minutes of a body of water like a river, sea or lake? Yes.
  10. Have you ever smelled a dog fart? I don’t think so. And I don’t want to.
  11. Have you ever hugged a shoe? I can’t remember. The possibility of answering yes to this question is high.

Fourth, create eleven new random questions.

  1. What is your favorite Dr. Suess book?
  2. Have you ever thrown up at school?
  3. Do you like being barefoot?
  4. Did you think there was a monster under your bed or in your closet as a child?
  5. Would you rather face one horse-sized duck or fifty duck-sized horses?
  6. When is the best occasion to wear a cape?
  7. Would you tell anyone if you had been abducted by aliens?
  8. What is your comfort food?
  9. Which is worse: being lost in an unfamiliar city or being lost in the woods?
  10. Who is your hero?
  11. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen at the grocery store?

Fifthly (and lastly) tag some people!

So there you have it. Just another blog tag post. Hope you enjoyed it. Have a good Wednesday!


I’m inspirational! Who knew?

I have exciting news (yay, exciting news!). I have been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blog Award. A special thank you to Ellen for nominating me!

Very Inspiring Blog Award

The Very Inspiring Blog Award is truly a neat thing. Basically it’s a chance for bloggers to spread positive feelings and recognize each other for writing something great. It’s a chance to make someone feel warm and tingly about what they’re doing. And who wouldn’t want to do that?

There are simple rules that go along with accepting this nomination, and those are:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate at least 5 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

So. Seven Things About Me:

1. I have the best job in the world, which is being a big sister. I am the oldest of six fantastic kids (if I do say so myself) and we’re a close-knit bunch. My siblings are my best friends, and I’d do absolutely anything for them.

2. I am a Whovian. For those of you who don’t know what that is, well, basically it means I’m obsessed with Doctor Who, which is pretty much one of the most brilliant sci-fi shows on television. I’d follow the Doctor anywhere. Allons-y!

3. I’m a bit of an Anglophile. I adore British culture, history, music, films, television, literature and especially their accents. Someday in my near future I hope to visit dear old England. That day can’t come soon enough.

4. When I was five years old, I told my mom I wanted to be a writer. I’m now twenty one years old and that hasn’t changed.

5. One of my favorite things to do is to watch movies and T.V. with my dad. We both love superheroes and action films and I like nothing better than to sit down and watch one with him. He says I’m too much like him for my own good. I couldn’t be more pleased or proud.

6. I am a Potterhead, a member of the Potter Generation, a faithful follower of Queen Rowling, and one of those people who turned up to the midnight releases of the Harry Potter books. And just because the series has ended (for now) and all the movies have been released, doesn’t mean I’m going to stop my obsession.

7. I drink an inordinate amount of tea. Iced tea, herbal tea, breakfast tea, hot tea, you name it.  I love it, and I wouldn’t be able to get through the day without it. As the Doctor once said, “Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses…”


Now for the other bit. Drum roll, please.

My Nominations for the Very Inspiring Blog Award are:

Ellen Grey Carter  Ellen is a fellow writer bring her unique sense of style to the blogging universe. She is working on her novel and gives us random and refreshing blog posts about writing, the universe and other interesting things in the mean time. One of my favorite things she does is “Write a Picture Wednesday,” where she posts a picture, writes a scene about it and prompt us to do the same. What could be more fun?

The Afictionado  Maybe inspirational isn’t the word you would choose to describe this blog about pop culture and other such geeky things, but it’s fun and interesting and definitely worth a look!

From Sarah, With Joy  Another fellow writer, one who is spreading words of joy “on writing and what it means to be an artist.” I love a good blog about the joy in creating, especially with words!

Skottie Young A professional cartoonist and illustrator, Skottie’s “Daily Sketch” posts always liven my day. I love his eccentric style and take on various characters from literature, comics, movies and televsion. Check his work out!

Kaitlyn Fletcher  A bright young woman who, despite various obstacles thrown in her way, is making a go at life and her dream of spreading her artwork to the world. Her attitude towards life is definitely an inspiration and it is a joy to see her work. Go check it out!


And there you have it. Seven things about me and my nominations for the award. Finally, I’d like to give another special thanks to Ellen, because I really am ridiculously pleased about being nominated. Makes me grin every time I think about it.

So go on, what are you still hanging around here for? Go check out those inspirational blogs!
