Good morning! Happy last post of the year before we finish the holiday week! What better way to focus on the bright spots than to indulge in the Sunshine Blogger Award, courtesy of The Orangutan Librarian!
WHO IS THE ONE PERSON THAT IS THE SUNSHINE IN YOUR LIFE?
There will be no “one” answers in this post. It is not fair to make me choose.
Definitely my sons. And the cat. (Yes, he’s a person, shush.)
DO YOU PREFER ALL HAPPY MOVIES, OR OCCASIONAL SAD MOVIES?
Definitely happy, but there can be sad moments and I won’t get upset. I do not do the silliness of “everybody dies and everything is terrible, the end.” Nu-uh, sir.
WHAT IS THE ONE FOOD THAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU HAPPY?
Asian in general, but especially sushi and noodle soup!
WHAT IS THE SUNSHINE ON YOUR BLOG?
Definitely the wonderful people who regularly swing by to show their support and share their thoughts with such kindness!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE WACKY “FUN” DAY?
Hmmm…probably that rare, mythical day when I don’t have any responsibilities or children to take care of, and I get to just go to the mall by myself and sip chai latte and wander around, oogling over products I can’t afford.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF?
Hmmm…this is a tall order for a Vulcan… I don’t give up easily. I keep pushing through, even when things get a bit bleak. I hate to be defeated.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU LOVE ABOUT THE BLOGGING COMMUNITY?
Certainly the way you all rally around each other, and are there when things get tough!
WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU SMILE THE MOST?
Again, there is no such thing as “one.” Warriors, basically all of The Prophecies Begin, because of Yellowfang’s saltiness and her big heart, and book 2 in The New Prophecy had so many uplifting moments that just put a big grin on my face. More recently, Finding Audrey and Girl Online gave me lots of laughs. And in Kyle Robert Shultz’s Beaumont and Beasley series, whenever Malcolm Blackfire shows up, I will simply sit there with a massive stupid grin through that scene.
WHERE IS YOUR CORNER OF SUNSHINE IN YOUR HOME?
When the sun hits at a certain angle (usually mid-afternoon), and it falls just right through the trees, and in late spring through early fall it has that real golden sheen… Yeah, when that’s on my writing desk, I am very content.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR OR COLORS?
Pink, purple, blue, yellow, and silver. (See? Just one is impossible.)
WHAT IS THE ONE MOVIE (OR DRAMA) THAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU HAPPY?
What did I just say… The film version of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline (even with its creepy moments), Doctor Who (even with all the tears), and Lord of the Rings (yes, even with all the crying!). And there are scenes in Blade Runner and The Last Unicorn that are just absolutely beautiful storytelling.
All right, I’ll break with the tradition of not nominating anyone! Kyle Robert Shultz, Paper Fury, SM Metzler, Deborah O’Carroll, and Jameson @ Lovely Whatsoevers, you’re up! (And whoever else would like to do this!)
