Liebster Award #3 and Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

liebster4sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award

I’ve been honored by once again being nominated for the Liebester Award, this time by Prajkata of An Armchair Perfectionist (I also had an honorable mention nomination by Some Kernels of Truth). Prajkata also nominated me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, for which I am also greatly honored. Thank you very much! I will do both in this post.

 

Liebster Award:

Rules: 

  1. Post the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
  3. Write 5 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 5 bloggers (they should have less than 300 followers)
  5. Answer 5 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 5 questions. 

 

5 Random Facts about me:

1. I’m right-handed but tend to do a few things like a lefty

2. I’m a proud geek.

3. I’m a Taurus.

4. My favorite color is purple.

5. I can’t swim.

 

The questions for me to answer:

 

  • A superpower you wish you had.
  • Some type of teleportation, I think. That would be neat.
  • Do you believe in ghosts? Any experiences?
  • I’ve not had any experiences, but I kind of think it would be neat. I don’t know that I believe (without having an actual experience), but I am interested in the paranormal and do enjoy watching shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures.
  • Who is your most favourite person in the world?
  • Hm. It’s hard to chose. There are so many people I like. But I guess it would probably have to be my boyfriend 😀 And Johnny Depp.
  • Introduce a great plot twist in the world we live in.
  • A plot twist? Well, my writer’s creativity can come up with all sorts of plot twists. Let’s see. How about snow in summer?
  • Link up your best/favourite post from your blog.
  • Hm. Hard to say. Maybe this one or this one.

Liebster Award #2

 

liebster4

Grady P. Brown did me the honor of nominating me for my second Liebster Award the other day.  Thank you so much, and sorry I’m just now getting around to doing this.

Anyway, for this award, I’m supposed to answer 11 questions, tag some people, and give them 11 questions to answer.

So, my questions to answer are:

1.) Do you enjoy anime and manga?

Yes! I’ve been into anime and manga for about 20 years, I think. Some of my current favorites include Rurouni Kenshin, Hellsing, Fullmetal Alchemist, Blue Exorcist, Sword Art Online, Fairy Tail, Detective Conan, Lupin III, Black Butler, Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho, Gundam, and Macross.

2.) What is your favorite pet?

Cats, with dogs a close second. But I love animals in general.

3.) What country would you want to visit the most?

Ireland (to go back and see more of), the UK, and Japan.

4.) What would you describe as your favorite vacation experience?

The week I spent in Ireland as part of a study abroad group. It was my first time going to a different country. It was also a bit of a gutsy move, since I went with people I didn’t really know. And it was my first time on a plane.

5.) If you enjoy superheroes, who is your favorite one?

Hard to say. I enjoy a lot of them. But I’d say Batman, Spider-man, and Gambit, probably.

6.) What is your opinion of pit bulls?

They’re just like any other dog. It all comes down to training, I think. Train the dog right, and you won’t have so much trouble with them.

7.) What kind of music do you enjoy?

My taste is pretty eclectic. About the only type I don’t really like is rap and hip-hop. I really enjoy rock (classic, hard, metal, alternative), country, classical, big band, some jazz, and J-pop and J-rock (Japanese pop and rock).

8.) What makes you laugh the most?

watching animals play; witty humor; sarcasm. I love the Marx Brothers, for example.

9.) What is your favorite season of the year?

autumn

10.) How would you describe as the perfect villain?

Tough question. I’m not really sure. Maybe someone who is clever but a bit psychotic. Someone with a method to their madness and who can do wrong but make it seem almost an endearing quality, so that people will have a hard time condemning him. He’d also have to be able to give the hero a run for his money in some way or other.  My first thought was someone kind of like The Joker.

11.) What is your favorite dessert?

cheesecake, ice cream, or anything chocolate

 

My questions for the nominees:

1. What was your favorite school subject?

2. Do you enjoy video games?

3. What would you do if you won the lottery?

4. What is your favorite tv show?

5. If you could travel back in time, when would you go to?

6. What’s your favorite book from childhood?

7. Who would you cast to play you if they made a movie of your life?

8. Do you believe in ghosts?

9. What is your favorite holiday?

10. Do you consider yourself a morning person?

11. Coffee or tea?
