***

Here’s the questions Rory has asked:

***

If you could do something a bit naughty every day and not get caught, what would you do?

Well, I’m not usually a person who does naughty things, so let me think on this a bit. Okay, maybe go into an office supply store and pop all the bubble wrap.

Do you have any unusual party tricks?

Another hard question, because I don’t go to parties, and barely ever did in the past. I do nothing special that I know of.  … OR … blend into the woodwork so no one sees me. That way I don’t have to talk to anyone, and can just listen to them, gathering all kinds of information. heh heh I am a Ghost in the wall.

Can you name 5 things you can do with hot wax that you shouldn’t but the naughty wicked you would love to do!

I don’t do naughty things, with wax or any other thing. I light a candle now and again, but try not to get the wax on anything. There are a lot of art projects you can do with wax, but they aren’t naughty.

What is the theory of what is not the theory of what is?

My theory is this question has no meaning.

Can you guess the answer to my 11th question yet?

I’m a bit of a mind reader, but I have no idea what the 11th question is, since this challenge only goes up to 5 questions.

***

I do not nominate any specific bloggers on any awards I’m presented with. I believe every blogger works hard to bring such informative and entertaining posts for us to read, that everyone deserves to be awarded. Whether by accepting blogging awards, visiting other’s blogs, commenting, and liking, and making blogging friends, you are all special! Feel free to accept this award/gift if you want to!

***

Here are 5 questions I made up, if you want to answer them. 🙂

  1. Do you think antiques are haunted?
  2. What is your favorite number, and why?
  3. Do you have a lucky talisman or mantra – what is it?
  4. Do you think this life is actually a dream you’re having, and everyone you meet and everything you encounter are just characters/situations you’ve made up?
  5. Are you superstitious about anything?

Sunshine Blogger Award Nominations # 12 and 13

***

I was recently nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Sadje, of Keep It Alive! Thanks so much, Sadje!

You can find her wonderful blog at the above link. 🙂

***

RULES:

1. Use the sunshine blogger award logo

2. Give thanks to the blogger that nominated you

3. Answer the 11 questions given to you

4. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions

***

1.Who is your hero/ role model?

I don’t think I have a hero or role model.

2. If today was the first time that you have seen a rainbow, describe your emotions.

Oh my God! It’s so beautiful and must be a sign from Heaven!

3. What is the most commonly used object in your home?

The stove, because we cook something every day.

4. What is one thing that you cannot leave your house without?

My shoes & clothes on.

5. What sort of music you like to listen to?

I like all kinds of music, but favor any type of rock music, especially the older songs.

6. If you had a chance to start a new blog where all your followers were guaranteed to follow you, will you do it?

Sure. I’d keep this one, of course, and start a new one or more, with only certain subjects. I could have one with just music, one with just short stories, one for poetry, etc.

7. What is more important in life: having health or money?

Health, especially as we get older we realize how important this is.

8. Would you stop your car for a lone hitch hacker?

I would not stop. There would be too big a chance of something bad happening.

9. If egg yolk was black instead of yellow, would you still eat it?

I love eggs of all kinds, so if we grew up eating black yolk eggs, then it would be normal, and I’d eat them. If all of a sudden all eggs had black yolks, it would be disturbing, but I’d get used to it if they tasted the same.

10. What is in your pocket?

Today I’m not wearing anything with pockets. If I do, there is usually nothing in them. I do put my phone in a pocket once in awhile, if I need my hands to carry something else.

11. Which planet in our solar system is most likely to support life, other than Earth?

Maybe Mars?

***

So many people have already been nominated for this award already, that I’ll leave the challenge open to anyone who’d like to answer the same questions, and grab the award logo! 🙂

• Notify the nominees by commenting on one of their blog posts.
• List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post.

Here are the questions I was asked to answer:

***

Paper or Plastic?

I prefer paper bags because plastic ones don’t degrade. Also, when the wind blows plastic bags sail through the air and get caught in tree branches, which looks awful.

Drive thru/Take Away, Eat-in, or Delivery?

We do the first two quite often. We haven’t had any food delivered to the house in years.

Favorite Pizza Toppings?

Cheese, mushroom, and onion. Sometimes pepperoni.

Ice cream, Frozen yogurt, or Frozen custard?

All of these are good, but I can’t have them any more.

Favorite Hamburger toppings?

Cheese, lettuce, onions, mustard. Maybe a pickle on the side, but not always.

Coffee, Tea, or Soda?

Coffee in the morning and afternoon. Iced tea the rest of the time. Soda not any more.

Favorite snack food?

Right now it’s peanut butter & crackers. If I could have them now, I’d pick anything sweet.

Sunny, cloudy, or overcast?

Cloudy and stormy with thunder and lightning.

If you could order anything from the machine in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, what would you order? (It’s a machine that drops food from the sky).

If the food came down splattering on the ground, I wouldn’t want it. If it came down nice and easy, in a dish, then Mexican food combination plate.

Alien, Predator, or Human Villain? Which would you rather face?

Aliens, because they are my people.

What do you want from the Great Pumpkin this year?

Peace

***

The questions:

Which decade do you miss the most?

I would say the decade of the 1960s. I was age 10 – 20 during the 60s. It was a good time to grow up. Looking at that time period now, I don’t think I appreciated everything that happened in the world of that time period. There were lots of changes, like a shift in the types of music we listened to, the clothing styles, and lifestyles completely different from what came before. There were the hippies, proclaiming ‘peace not war’, in the midst of the Vietnam war years, there were men walking on the moon, political unrest, and Woodstock. For me, I was mostly going to school, and hanging out with friends. I was aware of all the news stories of the days, but didn’t realize at the time, how much influence these changes would be. If I could go back to the 60s, with the knowledge I have now, I believe I would have been more aware of it all.

To which poet do you feel most connected to?

Edgar Allan Poe. His writings and poems were dark and mysterious. I’ve always been drawn to Poe, and even wrote an English assignment essay on his life, while I was in school.

Your spirit cartoon character/TV show artist?

???

How has your blog helped you the most?

Blogging has helped me get my writing out here for others to read. Otherwise, it would just be hidden away in the many notebooks I have. I have learned a little about working on the computer, with still a lot I still need to learn. I have enjoyed meeting and having short conversations with people all over the world, because of blogging, and this is the most amazing thing to be a part of. 🙂

***

I appreciate and enjoy reading everyone’s blogs for all different reasons. I believe you all deserve an award for all the time spent and hard work it is to create and maintain your blogs, so if you would like to participate, I nominate you!

I would like to thank Suzanne for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. You can find her blog, ‘PS Annie’, here:

http://ps-annie.blogspot.com/2016/09/sunshine-blogger-award.html

Here are the questions I’m to answer…

1. For the ladies: Are you a girly-girl or a tomboy?
For the guys: Are you a rough-and-tumble guy or do you prefer quiet pursuits?

… Probably a little of both. I don’t do frilly, girly things, and I don’t do sports, either.

2. How did your parents choose your name? Do you like it?

…They never said why they chose my name. I wasn’t named for anyone. I like it ok, but could think of lots of other names I would like.

3. What was your favorite subject in high school?

…English, because we got to write essays. My favorite thing to do, would make others complain about having to write.

4. What do you do to pass the time while you’re waiting? (At the school, doctor’s office, etc.)

Write in a notebook I carry with me, or on random pieces of paper. People watch, and eaves drop on conversation.

5. Do you live in the city or the country? Which do you prefer?

…We live in a pretty big city, but right on the edge, so we aren’t too far from fields, and there are people with goats, and horses not too far from us.

6. What was your most memorable meal?

…Nothing especially memorable comes to mind. I like to eat most everything at regular times.

7. What was your happiest moment this week?

…It rained a lot the other day. I love the rain, thunder, lightning…storms!

8. Do you have the job that is your life’s passion? If not, what is that passion and what is keeping you from doing it?

…I don’t work outside the house anymore. My passion would be my writing, and any type of art (scrapbooking, painting, crafting, drawing) I do all of these whenever I’m in the mood, so nothing is stopping me.

9. What types/genre of books do you like to read? Do you prefer to read via e-reader or a real book?

…Horror, non-fiction, biography, memoir, humor, travel, conspiracy, some fiction. I’ve been reading some Young Adult novels lately, in the science fiction style. I read a lot of all kinds of books.

10. What is the most interesting story that you know from your family’s history?

…That my grandparent’s house was haunted. I had first hand experience with this, and so did others. We all knew about it.

11. If you woke up with a million dollars in your hands tomorrow, what would you do?

…Pay off bills, help out daughters, have fun spending it.

As I never nominate any certain people for awards, feel free to add this to yours if you would like. I know how much time and energy goes into creating a blog, so feel that everyone deserves to be recognized. 🙂
