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?

One Lovely Blog Award

9 Jan

I was nominated for this award by TheCuriousBum, and am so very grateful that he felt I deserved it!

Here is how it works:

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  •  Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post.
  • Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
  • Nominate about 15 bloggers you admire and inform nominees by commenting on their blog.

And now I’m supposed to share 7 facts. Seven!? That my followers and friends don’t already know???? Well…here goes…

1) One of my blogs is going to be printed in a newsletter from a humane society on the East Coast
2) There are only 3 celebs that I have uber-crushes on: David Duchovny, Shia LaBeouf, & Ryan Gosling
3) I was baptized in the Catholic church, and was given the name “Christian”
4) I like to refer to myself in the third person
5) I have full confidence in myself to be able to do anything that I set my mind to
6) I find hope and guidance in Wicca, Tarot, and Astrology
7) I’ve grown quite fond of the “lumbersexual

That was a lot harder to think of than you may think…

As my predecessor for this nomination said, I think 15 bloggers is a little TOO many. Had this been in the days of Xanga, I could have easily grabbed 15, but now that it isn’t, we’ll just pick what I can.

First and foremost, I nominate the lovely orchidatdusk, who I find inspiring and has the prettiest resting bitch face I’ve ever seen (haha ;) ). I always love reading her posts, and appreciate her comments immensely.

Next, we’ll (who are these ‘we’ people?) nominate daniel-brockhan. Daniel is so committed to writing and is such a beautiful human being. His passion and dedication is unsurpassed.

Finally, as I think I will leave it at 3, is a relatively new blog called journeythroughbipolar. I nominate her because she is showing amazing strength, and through that hopefully she will be able to help others both through their bipolar disorders, but also help those without it have a better understanding of mental illness.

So go forth, my nominees. 

Whatcha think about those 7 things about me?
