Hi readers! I was recently nominated for a Leibster Award here on Word Press! Thanks to The Arty Plantsman for the nod! (Check out his blog here: https://artyplantsman.wordpress.com/)
As I understand it, the Liebster Award is for newer blogs with under 200 followers. A fellow blogger nominates you and asks you to nominate others in return. When you accept the award, you answer the questions posed to you by the person who nominated you and then make up some of your own for your nominees. So, here are the answers to the questions I got:
If you could be one fictional character for a day, and actually live their life, – who would it be and why?
*There are too many to name! I’m a Star Trek TNG fan, so being any of those characters would be fun! And I’m currently reading the “Outlander” series and being the main character Claire might be fun. I’m of Scottish descent and I love history so I think traveling back in time to Scotland and Europe- and traveling through time would be fabulous. I think it could also be interesting to be Arthur Dent, the protagonist from “The Hitchiker’s Guide To The Galaxy”. And being a Transformer from the Transformer cartoon and movie series. Oh! I almost forgot, I could be……. (And the list is never ending, lol!)
Can you play a musical instrument? If so, which? If not – which would you most like to learn or like to listen to?
*When I was younger I tried learning to play the violin. My mom was a violinist and at the time I wanted to be like her and give it a shot. I wasn’t really into it, though and quit after a few years. I decided that I wasn’t cut out to be a musician. It was around this time that I discovered writing, so playing music just didn’t appeal to me anymore. I haven’t really been interested in playing a musical instrument until recently. I kind of want to learn how to play the drums- but just for fun.
Are your friends (partners excluded) mostly of your own (biological) sex?
*My closest friends are female, like I am, but I do have several male friends, too. I love having friends of both sexes; I think it makes things more fun and interesting!
If magic could make it possible, would you be interested in changing sex for a few days to see the world from another perspective? Do you think it would be a good idea if we all did this at least once in our life?
*I don’t know. I think it could be interesting to be a guy for a little while to see how my perspective would change and to know what it’s like not to have to deal with the downsides to womanhood, lol; but I really love being a woman (I think it’s fun!), so I’m not super interested in it. I think there is a possibility that doing this could help men and women understand each other a little better.
Vampire movies/shows – do you prefer scary ones or romantic ones, and which?
*I used to watch a short lived show called “Moonlight” about vampires in the modern world. I really loved it- too bad it got canceled! I hate scary/horror genres, so it would have to be romantic, action or drama for me to watch it.
Think of something good about yourself. Talk about it if you want, but I just wanted you to feel nice.
*Ok, thought about it. Happy thoughts are good, hehe.
Random Facts about me:
*I’m a proud ginger! I love being a redhead!
*I love mushrooms (for eating/cooking) and eat them every chance I get. I prefer fresh ones over canned. The canned version is so crappy, lol! They get all mushy in the cans, so fresh is better. I’m actually looking into starting my own little mushroom garden.
*I’m fascinated by all things naval: old and modern, pirates, ships, period weaponry, naval history, strategy and the like. Maybe I’ll do a post on that some day.
Ok, now time for me to name my nominees and the instructions for them.
