Yay! But the award comes with a price.
RULE 1 – Thank and link back to the awarding blog.
Thanks goes to Elizabeth Twist, a blogging buddy of mine, who has been equal parts entertaining in her posts about some of the more esoteric and creepy parts of our world (check out her A to Z challenge series) and inspiring in her ability to take some of the weirder calls out there and make story magic.
Thanks so much, Elizabeth!
RULE 2 – Answer the following seven questions:
1. Name one song you listened to over and over as a teenager.
George Gershwin’s Cuban Overture. I’m not kidding. In fact, I listened to only classical music until my freshman year of high school. That’s when my friends had an intervention, and it was alternative and indie rock from then on out. Now I listen to just about anything that’s not super hard-core rap, metal, or country *shudder*
2. What’s your favorite dessert?
Anything chocolate. This is usually a good place to start (and it’s as good as it sounds). Though now that summer is less than a month away, there’s nothing better than a slice of key lime pie on a warm evening.
3. What do you do when you’re upset?
That depends. Are we talking upset-sad or upset-mad? The former involves some sort of alone time where I read or listen to music to distract me. The latter usually involves me playing a shoot-em-up video game so I don’t bite someone’s head off.
4. Which is your favorite pet?
Umm…I have just the one. And how could she not be my favorite?
5. Which do you prefer? White or whole wheat?
Whole wheat. Unless it’s Thanksgiving. My family’s traditional stuffing calls for white bread. Nom.
6. What is your biggest fear?
Failure. That and spiders.
7. Do you think it is better to help people or leave them alone?
My initial thought is that people should have the freedom to fail (or succeed) on their own terms. You learn a lot more that way. And some things can’t be taught, only experienced. That said, there’s a greater potential for karma points when you help others. So it depends, on both the person needing the help and the situation.
RULE 3 – Provide
ten five random factoids about yourself.
- I really hate talking about myself.
- I can crack my jaw.
- I only get pedicures for the calf massage.
- I was born on Good Friday.
- I am allergic to cats. Plus they take over your mind.
