Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.

So, this doll over at The Pretty Platform nominated me for an award. No, seriously. Look how cute this girl is.

Elke at the Pretty Platform

Right? Adorable. So, Elke, because you’re too cute to say no to, I accept 😉


Okay. Here are the rules!

As I accept this nomination, the following must be accomplished:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
2. Put the award logo on your blog.
3. Answer the ten questions sent to you.
4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Nominate seven blogs.
I got this.
The Answers
  1. If there was a book written about you, what would it be titled? At Least She Meant Well.
  2. If you could go back to any age in your life, which would it be, and why? Well, I have made splendidly horrendous mistakes at every stage of my life, so I wouldn’t say I had any desirable “stage.” And I’m 42 now but have never minded the journey of getting older so there isn’t a younger age I’d want to be. That leaves the obvious – I would go back to any time prior to December 15, 2014 when I still had my mom and best friend.  That was all the best stage.
  3. What single accomplishment are you most proud of? I’m proud of my three as-yet-unpublished novels. Because I never quit. Even when I came so close the first time only to suffer a huge disappointment – I just moved on to the next book. Full-time job, kids, law school – didn’t matter. A writer writes.
  4. Country living or city living? Suburb living looking to escape to the country. I want chickens. And a goat.
  5. What’s your favorite joke? Do tell. The past, the present, and the future walked into a bar. It was tense.
  6. Are you an ugly or pretty crier? I’ve actually become an expert in the matter. I’ve got the pretty cry, the ugly one, the rogue-tear one, the cry-till-you’re-hoarse one, and the I-swear-to-god-I-seriously-need-to-stop-crying one.
  7. If you could donate money to one cause, to one organization, which would it be? St. Jude’s Hospital. Anything for children. And it was my mom’s favorite.
  8. What do you think should be taught in schools today that isn’t already? I’m not a huge proponent of shock value, but after I saw “American History X,” I thought it should be shown in high schools. With all the language, violence and hard R rating intact. I don’t know that I’ve seen another movie that more accurately embodies the futility and tragedy of hatred more than that movie.
  9. How do you like your steak cooked? I don’t remember. Haven’t had a steak in about 33 years.
  10. What vacation spot did you enjoy the most? That’s tough. I love love love to travel. I guess I would say Blarney Castle in Ireland. Sad that it’s only known for kissing that nasty stone. The grounds are so beautiful, I could have stayed for a year.

The Questions for the Nominees

  1. What are you most afraid of?
  2. Star Wars or Star Trek?
  3. What is your favorite book?
  4. Now what is your real favorite book that that doesn’t make you look as intellectual as your answer in number 3?
  5. If you could trade places with any currently living celebrity, who would it be?
  6. Do you believe in ghosts?
  7. What is your favorite Pixar movie?
  8. What is the most impulsive thing you’ve ever done?
  9. What is your favorite genre of food?
  10. Who is your favorite Disney princess?

My Nominees

  1. Gone Catawampus – love love love these girls. Sorry to be redundant, cause I’ve nominated them for stuff before, but they never disappoint.
  2. Never Trust a Jellyfish – just the name makes me smile. As do most of her posts.
  3. Heather Christena Schmidt – Love her humor and honesty.
  4. The Stay at Home Philosopher – Quirky and clever. And I love quirky.
  5. Hacker. Ninja. Hooker. Spy. – AKA Aussa Lorens. Okay. She’s kind of a big deal and this is not news, but she’s just so damn funny.
  6. Some Offense Intended – because offensive is funny if you’re smart.
  7. Have You Seen My Glass Slipper? – because Kay is way more clever than I was at 18.

So, thanks to the lovely Elke. And I apologize to my nominees for the homework assignment.

Much love.

        Sorry, I watch too much Archer

        No such thing, Jonas. And that’s how you get ants.

      • April 7, 2015 at 8:07 am

    I’m sorry it’s taken me so damn long to get over here– I totally failed at being bloggy this week. Stupid wedding = such a distraction from the important things. Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it on to me, huzzah!

    I LOVE your suggestion to screen American X to school kids. Seriously. It frightens me, the things that people somehow grow up never learning in school or at home.

    And I’ve got posts scheduled for the next two weeks so I can handle my life, so I’ll answer your questions here!

    What are you most afraid of? – WATER! And Alex dying.
    Star Wars or Star Trek?- Star Wars. All the way. I still want to be a Jedi. *fingers crossed*
    What is your favorite book? – Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
    Now what is your real favorite book that that doesn’t make you look as intellectual as your answer in number 3? – Nope, that’s legit my favorite!
    If you could trade places with any currently living celebrity, who would it be? – David Sedaris. For his success. Not so much because I’m interested in being married to a gay man. That did NOT work out well for my Mom.
    Do you believe in ghosts? – I don’t think so but I certainly like to pretend like I do 😉
    What is your favorite Pixar movie? – I’m lame and don’t watch kids movies as much as I ought. How to Train Your Dragon made me cry.
    What is the most impulsive thing you’ve ever done? – Booked a one-way flight to China so I could get out of a hellish “relationships”
    What is your favorite genre of food? – Cheezit. Ha.
    Who is your favorite Disney princess? – Belle! But actually Ariel because I want to be a mermaid. But she’s kind of shallow. So I’ll say Belle so I can look bookish and compassionate.
