Sunshine Award

sunshine-awardI’ve been nominated for yet another award, the Sunshine Award, by teddy on Glipho. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it.

Teddy is an awesome blogger with a great sense of humor. Check out his blog on Glipho!

Here are the rules of the award:

1. Post the Sunshine Award logo.
2. Nominate ten of your favorite blogs, the ones you can’t wait to read.
Announce the news on their blog and insert a link back to the Nominator’s Blog.
3. Then answer the 4 questions below in order to get to know each other.

My Favorite Weather: Spring weather! I live in New York, so I get all four seasons. Winter and summer are too extreme for me. Autumn isnt too bad, but there are leaves everywhere and its kind of messy. Spring is just right—50-70°F weather and beautiful flowers in bloom…until June rolls around, that is. My birthday is also in the spring.

My Favorite Social Network: This is a tough one. I’d have to say it’s a tie between Facebook and Twitter. I keep in touch with friends and family on Facebook, and I also spend a lot of time reading celebrity gossip articles from my favorite news organizations on Twitter. I use both to promote my blog.

My Favorite Number: 3, because three is the Trinity. Also because a triangle has three sides and love triangles make for interesting love stories.

What Have I Achieved: I started college at 16 and got my Associates Degree at the age of 18. Not many teenagers can say the same.

And now for my nominations:

Maria Nichol


Laura Cripps



The DownLouw

The Love Hawk





Looking forward to seeing your answers to these questions!

I’ve Been Nominated for a Liebster Award!


The very kind Eleanor Croy nominated me for a Liebster Award. She’s pretty cool. Check out her blog: http://randomdorkness.wordpress.com/

So apparently I have to answer these questions. I’m not sure how creative my answers are supposed to be but here we go!

1.  What is the answer to the great question of Life, the Universe, and Everything?

GOD. Really, though. Without Him I would be nothing.

2.  In your opinion, is the climbing hydrangea or the bougainvillea more evil?

The bougainvillea for sure. That thing has thorns! Imagine walking through a very narrow passageway and having to brush against those vines. Scrapes and cuts everywhere!

3.  Can you hula-hoop?

Yes, I can. Haven’t hula-hooped in a while, though.

4.  Even if you could hula-hoop, why the heck would you want to?

It’s great exercise and its a lot of fun!

5.  What’s the magic word?


6.  Rock, paper, scissors, lizard, or Spock?

Scissors. I like to cut things into cool shapes.

7.  What sort of punishment should a blogger be subjected to, who recycles his or her old ideas and just hopes against hope that no one will notice?

Hmm. This is a tough one. Spam, maybe?

8.  If I gave you a bucket of water balloons and let you loose, who would you splosh first, and why?

Mike D, only because I know he’d go along with it!

9.  What is the first thing that pops into your head when you cross your eyes, stick out your tongue, and hop up and down on one foot?

Embarrassment and insanity.

10.  What is your superpower?

Ability to perceive things about people, even people that I’ve only known for a couple of hours. One time I ran into an old friend on the bus and she introduced me to one of her classmates. I realized immediately that he wanted to be more than just her friend by watching them and listening to the things he said to her. Some of my friends actually hate that about me.

11.  Do you have a secret identity?

If by secret identity you mean nom de plume then yes. I have two of them actually. I’ve told a few people about one of them but it was a long time ago. I’m sure they’ve already forgotten it.

And now, for the passing on of this Liebster Award, here are my 11 nominations: (in no particular order)
