NABLOPOMO – # 21 – BLOGGING AWARDSuntitleduntitled

Today’s 21st post for the NaBloPoMo blogging challenge, I’m accepting these two awesome awards that was presented to me recently. They are the Liebster Award, and the Infinity Dreams Award.

Thank you so much Bobbi, for nominating me for these two awards. Bobbi’s blog “Drawing on Words” is a delight to read, and can be found hereΒ … you should go see what all she posts πŸ™‚

The rules for these awards are:

Thank the person who nominated you for the award, and link back to their blog.

Include the award logos on your post.

Nominate other bloggers that you enjoy reading.

Copy the rules onto your blog.

Tell 11 facts about yourself. (you can use these questions, or make up your own)

~

Here are the questions I was asked, and my answers:

  1. What’s the story of your blog’s name?

I chose the name of “Teleportingweena” because I love the idea of time-travel. One of my favorite movies is “The Time Machine”, and one of the character’s name is Weena. We also had a cat that was named Weena (Rowena). She sadly passed on, this past August. We always said she could actually teleport herself, because she’d disappear for hours. As an inside cat, there are only so many hiding places, and we looked everywhere. Then, Weena would suddenly re-appear in the last place we’d seen her, looking like she knew secrets of some other dimension. So, that’s why…”Teleportingweena” πŸ™‚

2. Why did you start blogging?

I wanted someone, somewhere to read my stories. I started out on Blogger, and have lots of stories there, and my serial Fan Fiction Story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”, which I add to three times a week. You can find them hereΒ Then, I started the blog here on WordPress, to do more things with my fiction, and to do the many challenges I take part in.

3. What was your favorite class in High School?

English…because I love words, writing, and we got to do essays in that class. Most people would groan when we were supposed to write one, but not me πŸ™‚

4. Favorite Movie?

Well, the Time Machine (the original version), and…pretty much any movie that has rock music in it. Some titles…Dazed and Confused, That Thing You Do, Rock Star, Ricki and the Flash, Empire Records, and all the John Hughes movies of the 80s.

5. Favorite Books?

My favorite book is “Lost Souls” by Poppy Z. Brite (that is the book I write my fan-fiction on). Another favorite that I read at least once a year is “The Survival of Jan Little” by John Man, and I like reading series by the same author, such as all the Stephanie Plum novels, by Janet Evanovich, and all the Shopaholic novels, by Sophie Kinsella.

6. Weirdest thing you eat?

Burned meat. Very, very, very, well done, and better if burned. Any kind of meat. Also, some think this is weird, but I like to put ketchup on meat. πŸ™‚ …A couple of other foods I have eaten, and would eat again are snails (escargot) yum in butter sauce, and fried frog legs (tastes like chicken) πŸ™‚

7. What is your party trick?

I don’t like going to parties, so getting out of going sometimes is tricky. I have some silly excuses, sometimes, whether true or not. One was that I broke my tooth, and didn’t want anyone to see me! haha. actually that was the truth πŸ™‚

8.Β  What 3 things would you take to a desert island with you?

My make-up. I don’t go anywhere without make-up on. I guess some food, because I have low blood sugar, and tend to feel faint if I don’t eat. And, my time machine, so I can get off that desert island as fast as possible πŸ™‚

9.Β  If aliens invaded the planet, why would you be the 1st they should take?

Aliens would come to Earth to pick me up. You see, I was dropped off on this planet many years ago, by my fellow space travelers…to do research on this big blue ball you call home. … I am one of them, and it’s time to go back to my home planet. πŸ™‚

10. Share 1 thing you didn’t understand about the world when you were a kid.

I never could understand how the Earth, or any planet could be so huge, and just be floating around in space. It boggles the mind to even think about it even now!

11. ??

There wasn’t an 11th question to ask, unless I missed it. Hmmm…guess I’ll make one up…

If you drive, what kind of vehicle do you have. What dream vehicle would you want?

We only have one…it’s an older, blue Dodge Pick-up. It only has a cassette player (which we don’t use), crank window handles you have to manually roll up or down, but yay, the A/C works! My dream cars would be… a classic Thunderbird, 2 door, powder blue w/white convertible top, or an IROC-Z Camaro… I’ve always loved these. πŸ™‚

Three things that have inspired me lately:

1. My 15 month old grand-daughter. It is amazing to see her learn new things, Her smiles and laughter is so sweet. To see the world through a baby’s eyes is refreshing, and makes you take the time to look at everything around you with a new outlook. And my 5 year old grand-son, who is discovering and excelling in his writing and artwork, and is inspired by the stars above and the many rocks he finds here on the ground. They both have the wonder and love of life. They are very inspiring to me!

2. My cat, Cricket. She was ill the past week and had to go to the vet for treatment. She did not complain about feeling bad, and only a few growls, when she was examined. We should all be as calm about our situations, less complaining, and worry, and know that things will be better for us soon.

3. Reading blogs of all types. Everyone writes in their own special way, giving us a peek into their world, whether happy, sad, silly and fun, or just a rundown on their life experiences. We can all learn from each other, that there are many ways of doing things, wherever we live, whatever our customs…and that is very inspiring to me!

Thank you again, Yinglan, for the nomination!
