….’cause I’m so WINNING.
Well, that’s quite an overstatement, but I didn’t have a better title. To be frank, I find that comparing myself to Charlie Sheen is more of an insult than anything else.
However, I did win a handful of awards, twice. Once by the ever-lovely Faith over at The Love of Words, and then again by Sarah (a writer, Nerdfighter, and particularly interesting person that I’ve just had the pleasure of meeting) at Comfy Sweaters, Writing and Fish. Thank you, guys!
1) First off, here’s an odd award called Mrs. Sparlies Ten Commandments. Lolwut? And look at the icon:
Instead of doing a normal acceptance speech or passing it on with a quick word of thanks, this one’s actually got a little quiz/survey/questionnaire thing.
Describe Your Self in 7 Words: Weird, sarcastic, dark, obnoxious, procrastinator, careless, forgetful.
What Keeps You Up At Night: Tumblr? But seriously, thoughts of mortality and the meaning of human existence. (Mostly just tumblr.)
Whom Would You Like To Be: Ideally? A cowgirl, writer, artist, singer, songwriter, animator, poet, photographer, voice actress, and cosplay model.
Realistically? See above, minus singer because I can’t sing.
(I’m only joking, of course. My lifelong goal is to become a real-estate agent, or that failing, a cafeteria worker.)
What Are You Wearing Now: Jeans, a turquoise shirt, boots. Earlier I was wearing my Kagamine Rin wig.
What Scares You: “Hmm. My absolute lack of fears could be considered quite frightening…WOULD be my answer, if I hadn’t just seen the thumbnail for this award again. So my answer is, the thumbnail fo this award.” That’s what Sarah said, and it makes me laugh so I’m keeping it. (Plus I agree.)
I’d only like to add snakes, failure, and dying young. But mostly the thumbnail.
What Was The Last Website You Looked At: YouTube. There’s this group singing contest going on called VocaFusion, and the second round of entries just went up. They’re brilliant. (I’m not entered in any groups, but I know a lot of people who are.)
What is One Thing You Want To Change About Your Self: I wish I was born with laser eyes and natural leadership ability, because I would be on the track to take over the world. The way things are now, it’ll just be a bit more work, is all.
Slankets, Yes or No: What’s a slanket? Maybe it’s a slanted bucket? Yeah, sure, I’m okay with that, as long as it retains its original purpose, of holding things.
(I know, it’s like a snuggie or something. But that’s boring. Now PILLOW PETS ❤ Those I love. I sleep with mine every night, it’s the best combination of a pillow and stuffed animal that I own. Plus it’s adorableeee.)
Tell Us Something About The Person Who Nominated You: Faith is an incredible, brilliant friend of mine. I’ve known her for several years and her wit and insight continue to inspire me. Plus, she reads the best sort of books 🙂
I only discovered Sarah’s blog today, although had I kept up with my reading and commenting on the TCWT! blog chain, I would have met her much sooner. Based on my limited reading, she’s a clever writer, thoughtful poet, and a nerdfighter who has not forgotten to be awesome. I look forward to talking with her more 😀
2) The Sunshine Award.
Favorite colors: Grey and blue.
Favorite Animal: Horses, obviously 😀 I’m also partial to llamas and cats.
Favorite Number: 42.
Favorite Drink: Coffee. I love Coke, too.
Facebook or Twitter: Twitter ❤ As for Facebook, I could take it or leave it.
Your Passion: My church, my horse, and my art (literary and visual).
Giving or Receiving: Can I say Both? I’m saying Both.
Favorite Pattern: There’s something about plaid. It’s fun to draw.
Favorite Day of The Week: Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
Favorite Flower: Not a huge flower person, but roses are pretty.
3) Candle Lighter Award
There are no rules or anything for this one. It’s just for a blog that “brightens” your day. Sweet, huh?
4) Leibster Blog Award
I don’t think there are any rules for this one, either. Could be mistaken. It’s nice, anyway. (Not to reference an outdated internet meme, but…..
Okay, let’s nominate, shall we? Here, in no particular order, are people that I want to
submit to torture answer those splendid questions.
Mercy, my all-time favorite mustached crepe vendor. Without her, I wouldn’t have discovered the joys of Twitter, Doctor Who, or fanart of breakfast pastries.
Mike, who I will force to become my personal chef once the Master Plan of World Domination is complete. He will recreate every dessert dish from the Mike and Mitch Project. Every day. And I will eat them all.
Skye, because even though I don’t know her that well, she’s awesome, and I love her blog. I’d like to get to know her better.
Alice Mellark, because she shares my insane love of fictional characters. And these questions can serve as a sort of background check before we go to the convention together this summer *high five*
John Hansen and Allegra, because they puts an unbelievable amount of time and effort into building up the TCWT! blog chain, as well as an e-zine for teens, The Trivial Typewriter. I know that a lot of people appreciate it, myself included.
(A few people that I wanted to nominate have already been nominated, so just know that you were in my thoughts as well~)
NOW GO OUT, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, AND WRITE WONDERFUL WORDS!
(Side-note: How to use my new meme.)
