Sunshine Award!

Gracey gave me the Sunshine Award!

The rules for the award are:
  1. Include the award logo in a post and/or on your blog sidebar.  Done! 
  2.  Link to the blogger who nominated you.  Done! 
  3.  Answer 10 questions about yourself.  See below. 
  4.  Nominate 10 other fabulous bloggers and ask them 10 questions.  Man, this is the hard part... 
  5.  Link to your nominees in your post and let them know about the reward.  

Thank you, Gracey!! You're truly the sunshine on my cloudy days!

  1. Tea or coffee? An itsy-bitsy bit of cappuchino in a big mug of dark chocolate cocoa.
  2.  What would the name of your autobiography be? "I don't like people, but you're quite nice!"
  3.  Reality TV; guilty pleasure or sheer idiocy? Sad and annoying. Only exceptions: cooking shows and geek shows like Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs. 
  4.  Favorite James Bond actor? Is this where I admit that I haven't ever seen a James Bond movie all the way through? As an actor, my favorite one is Timothy Dalton. Random choice, I know.
  5.  Ocean or mountains? Mountains for life, ocean for vacations.
  6. Favorite author? EVERYONE. But in a pinch, or on a desert island, give me Jane Austen and Warren Ellis.
  7.  Thanksgiving pie; pumpkin, pecan or something else? Chocolate pecan.
  8.  What are your thoughts on techno music? Interesting, but not my cup of cocoa for long.
  9.  What is the last movie you saw in a theater? Looper.
  10. And, finally, because Halloween is tomorrow Today!, what is your favorite scary movie? The Watcher in the Woods!!! It is the bestest Disney kid's horror flick, and what my sister and I watched for every sleepover we had as kids. Plus, it has Bette Davis in it in her late 70's.
And now it's time for my questions. 
  1. What's your biggest fear, realistic or not?
  2. Favorite superhero movie?
  3. If you had to pick one genre to read for the rest of your life, what would it be? (memoirs, steampunk, cookbooks, what?)
  4. Is there a show that you just can't stop watching, even when it's bad and the characters do stupid things?
  5. If you could go forward in the future, what question would you ask your future self?
  6. What basic annoyance gets on your nerves more than any other (lateness, rudeness, etc)?
  7. Pie or cake? Or no sweets like a really annoying person I want to slap?
  8. What's been your best (or alternately worst) Halloween costume?
  9. What's the best band/singer you've discovered this year?
  10. What's the best thing that happened to you in the past week?
And I'm nominating these 9 ('cause 9 is my lucky number)
(and yes, some of these are complete dreams that they'll repost):

  1. Cammila of Dressed Up Like a Lady
  2. Carrie of Petal by Petal
  3. Chelsea of Bright Side Dweller
  4. Georgina of Cupcake's Clothes
  5. Holly Elise of Starlit Home
  6. Jen of Epbot
  7. Jenny (The Bloggess) of The Bloggess
  8. Jessie of Vanderbilt Wife
  9. Lilli of Frocks & Frou Frou
EDIT to add: Oh my sweet LORD. Jenny Lawson (the Bloggess) emailed me back after I sent her an email to let her know that I gave her this award. And I quote: "You so rock! Thanks!" My life is now complete, or will be once I print that out and frame it, since I'm totally lame and fangirly.

  1. Please write that autobiography! It sounds fascinating!! Also, you failed the James Bond question. The only acceptable answers are Daniel Craig, dressed in Tom Ford, or Sean Connery. Don't worry, you'll get it next time. ;-)
