Black Cat, Blue Sea Award

29 Jul

I was nominated by Lynn B for the Black Cat, Blue Sea Award.

I’m so grateful that as far as I’ve been and come, that I have such loyal readers and followers to nominate me and think of me in such a way! Lynn is one of the top contributors to my blog, and is extremely supportive in every way! I’m so appreciative.

The rules are very much simple:

•Anybody nominated can nominate up to seven other bloggers.

•Anybody nominated answers three questions. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions. If any of the questions asked are offending or simply do not want to be answered, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.


Without further ado…


1. Do you have any tattoos? If so, what are they of? If you do not but want one, what do you want and why? If you don’t have nor want tattoos, why not?

I do not currently have any tattoos, but I have several on my list of things that I want. The struggle has been two-fold…one being finding a place on my body that I like that the tattoo will look good, but also affording the said tattoo. My first tattoo I want to be a rememberance of my father, so I want a red/yellow/orange watercolor phoenix on my foot, with splatters of blue throughout (blue was his favorite color). In the outline of the bird, I want the words “give ’em hell, Annie” written becasue that is what he would always tell me when I was fired up about something. I also really want tattoos on my wrist of the Alice in wonderland bottle that says “drink me” and the cookies that say “eat me” because Alice in Wonderland is a book and translations that I love and are very close to who I am. I also kind of want a tiny tattoo that is symbolic of being a valkyrie to keep me grounded while I do my job and remind me of all the tough decisions I’ve had to make.

2. If you had three wishes, what would they be?

This question is always so difficult, because I would love to wish for abstract things. Being the logical person I am, though, I know that the consequences of such abstract ideas of “happiness” are probably not worth it.

So,  I think I will say my first wish would be money, because as you all should know by now, it is something that I struggle with, but with a vast enough amount of money, not only would I be able to get where I need to be to feel secure (car, house, paying off debt…that is really all I want), I could also ensure that my family was secure, and my close friends.

My second wish would be good health mentally and physically, because try as I might to be healthy, I know I fall short.

My third wish would be…probably that (having money already taken care of, however that looks) I had more time to do hobbies and hang out with friends and family.

3. What is your favorite musical group and/or song?

My taste in music is so diverse, that I have 3 favorite bands all tied for 1st. Those are Blink-182, Eminem, and Disturbed. All of my songs really change, but my favorite Blink songs are probably First Date, All the Small Things, and Bored to Death. My favorite Eminem Songs are probably Rock Bottom, Lose Yourself, and…I don’t even know. But those two definitely. My favorite Disturbed songs are probably Down with the Sickness, 10,000 Fists in the Air, and I really like that cover they did recently…Sound of Silence?


With that, I’m going to go ahead and nominate just two folks who are very dedicated to their posts (much moreso than I).




And my questions are…

  1. Why do you write, and what keeps you writing?
  2. Other than writing and the focus of your blogs, what are you passionate about?
  3. Do you believe in bigfoot/sasquatch/yeti/etc. and why or why not?

    Thanks for doing this and the shout out! You definitely deserve it. I fell off the face of the blogosphere for awhile after my ex-gf and I broke up but I was always reading even if not actively writing.

    I enjoy your contributions too. Don’t be a stranger. ;-)

      Did my other response not go through? Well, you don’t have to do anything that you don’t want to, and thank you SO much for all the support!

      But I still wanna know your thoughts on bigfoot, even if you don’t otherwise participate >_>

    ill answer your questions here:
    I’m not sure why I write, but possibly because of a couple of really great high school teachers who said we could write about anything we want each week as long as we turned in a page a week with something we wrote. it just got me into writing. my sr. English class was mass media and fiction and I put together a slide show with music that kind of told a story about a person on a bad drug trip. I also started to write some poems in high school and one was put into our literary book that was put together each year. I have hit and miss on my writing, but I have had several of my poems published and I self published a book of my poems and even collaborated with a woman to put together an internet book of our poems. I also have written and had published 5 books of adult themed (porn) under a pen name. you wont find any of these writings any where now except in a box in my garage. lol I will on occasion have something pop into my head and may share it on my site, but mostly will post my photos as I feel I do better with them than with words. I get more views/comments on my photos than my words. lol

    passionate? I would guess animals and general compassion. I use to rock and mtn climb and hike, but that has faded. my passion for photography has been with me for a long has the passion for animals.

    bigfoot? maybe. there are things we still do not know about and places we have not really fully explored. so there is the possibility. I also feel we are not the only intelligent life in all the universes.

    I am surprised and honored to see that you nominated me. (Surprised because I’m usually not nominated for these kind of things.) Although I usually don’t perpetuate chains, I might still do a post to answer your questions.

      AT LEAST Bigfoot ;)
