Adventures in tagging

GUYS. IT HAPPENED. I was tagged for the Liebster Award!!!!

Tess tagged me! Hi Tess *waves* She’s a pretty epic person, if I do say so myself, so go check out her blog!

The rules of the Liebster Award are:

  • Acknowledge the blog who nominated you for this award.
  • Answer 11 questions the blogger gave you.
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 blogs.
  • Notify them.
  • Give them 11 questions to answer.

YEEEEE time to be more educated about me than you ever thought you wanted to be! Onward, to the questions.

What was your favorite TV show/movie when you were a kid?

The Music Man, apparently. My mom claims I watched it multiple times. A DAY?? I personally, do not remember that. But I don’t doubt it.

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

Spend a night camping in the middle of the woods or whatever wilderness is readily available. With… no wifi signal!!! *collective gasp* I run the risk of sounding like a tech-hating hippie, but it’s worth it. Getting lost in the woods is fun, as long as you obey the Basic Rules of Common Sense: carry a compass, have some way to call for help in an emergency, and if a strange-looking person with leaves in their hair offers you food, politely refuse and for goodness’s sake don’t follow the mysterious music.

What do you think is the best way to start the day?

Waking up a 4:00 AM wondering if mice really like cheese.

What is one of your favorite smells?

I read “spells” instead of “smells.” I favor turning people into frogs, personally.

If you were suddenly put on a stage and told to deliver a speech, what would you talk about?

How did I end up on this stage? Who are the unblinking people in the audience? Wait- where are my pants? WHY AM I WEARING BOLOGNA INSTEAD OF SHOES- this is a stress dream a week from opening night isn’t it.

Do you think Wikipedia is a reliable source?

I think totally trusting Wikipedia articles without looking at another source is kinda like eating crackers for dinner, but the obscure sciency stuff I, as a desperate high schooler, read are probably going to be legit.

What’s the worst advice you’ve ever received?

“Don’t wear stripes with plaid.” What??? I can look like a Scotish version of Waldo if I want to.

What age would you like to live to?

Idk, whenever I get to go home I won’t complain, but there are so many books I still need to read…

What do you want carved on your gravestone?

Where are all these deep questions coming from??? I’m not good at being serious. Help.

How about no gravestone. Just plant a tree.

Have you ever saved someone’s life?

Do birds count? I saved a baby bird once. His name was Hoppy.  Also several bees drowning in pools. I’m practically the bee whisperer. Someday maybe I’ll be attacked and like a dozen bees will just swoop in like “hey got your back.”

Or not. I clearly do not have a strong grasp of bee phycology.

Maybe there’s a Wikipedia article on that.

Opinion on chow mein?

I… don’t think I’ve ever had chow mein? It’s a like an oriental noodle dish, right? Sounds yum, but idk.

And that, my friends, is the most beautiful piece of prose NC had ever written. A heavenly choir sang the praises of her marvelous description. Across the globe, thousands of writers question their own creative ability, asking how they have never writing something so glorious, so stunning, so perfect.

And then maybe NC went and got the sleep she actually needed because she’s losing her mind.

 

And now, *drumroll please* 11 random facts!

  • Peas with honey tastes exactly like you think it will. This isn’t necessarily a fact about me, but I did the research to be able to know that.
  • I’m really fond of my dagger. I like sharp things, ‘kay?
  • I can play the guitar. “You must be such a cool person!” Yep. That’s me. The guitar hippie.
  • My favorite color is grey.
  • I ate a donut today. Probably not the day you’re reading this. The day I wrote this was a Donut Day.
  • I really like CSI related stuff and want to be a forensic scientist when I grow up.
  • I like snakes. Snakes are cool.
  • I’m running out of interesting facts.
  • There are cool glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling of the room I’m in. Hm, the light’s been on for long enough I could probably turn it off and they would glow…
  • I’m sitting in the dark now. The stars are kind of glowing.
  • Wow, this room is really dark…

 

Now I will tag 11 blogs! Ha! Ha! Ha… how does one even know that many people.

I’ll do my best though…

That’s eleven, right? That’s totally eleven. Anyone can steal this if they want to, just most of the blogs I know of have already done the Liebster Award or something like it.

Be interrogated…

  1. Would you describe yourself as an optimist or a pessimist?
  2. Would you rather go down in history for making terrible puns or having awful spelling?
  3. How do you feel about breakfast for dinner?
  4. What do you do when you feel you’re losing your patience?
  5. What’s the first book you can remember reading?
  6. What’s the weirdest gift you’re ever received?
  7. Opinions on pigeons?
  8. What’s something you’re done that you’re proud of?
  9. Are you a morning person, a night person, or even a person at all?
  10. To be or not to be?
  11. If you had the coolest sticker ever, where would you stick it?

 

Well that was fun. I have no idea how to end this post.

So…

This is the end.

This right here.

yep.

Really. It’s done now.

  1. Yay, your first tag! 😀 I play guitar too (a little bit). We’re both super cool. 😉 Come to think of it, I have glow in the dark stickers on my ceiling too, but every time I look at them I have to resist the urge to claw them off. I don’t like them. :/

    1. *very chill finger guns* I love guitar. I think it’s pretty amazing that my stars are still up, not because I don’t like them, just because gravity doesn’t. We used to have the whole solar system but the only survivors a Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune. The planets are in trouble. XD

  2. Oh my word that was so ridiculously funny! How do you do that?!?! And I may just have to steal this for my blog if you don’t mind. How do you tag a blog, though?

    1. Yes, steal away my friend! Oh, you mean like linking to a different page? When you’re writing, highlight the piece of text you want to be the link. For example, the words “her blog” in the first paragraph. Then, look in the toolbar for a button that looks like a chain with three links. It’s to the right of the bold and italic buttons. A box will pop up, and there will be a space to enter the URL of the page you want to link to.

  3. AHAHAHAHA how did I not see this WELL. I think my favorite part is this poetic piece of prose that has no equal among the fans of Poe:

    How did I end up on this stage? Who are the unblinking people in the audience? Wait- where are my pants? WHY AM I WEARING BOLOGNA INSTEAD OF SHOES- this is a stress dream a week from opening night isn’t it.
