So Scary Carrie over at The Travelin-gineer gave me the Liebster Award. What? Yeah I know, I'm kind of a big deal. Or, I have less than 200 "followers" and she felt bad for me. Regardless, it's awesome and she rocks for doing that.
Also, feel free to "follow me" (sidebar). I have, like, 18 people following me. That makes my heart sad. OR I just realized that that's a thing (being followed) and I'm kind of really honored that 18 people want to follow me at all. Thanks, guys! Plus, I was just excited that the pageviews things was high, and was feeling all happy about that, and now I realize that people can follow me, too, and that that's a thing? What? This is all very stressful.
Anyway, let's get down to it. I was asked 11 Questions by Scary Carrie and so I feel obliged to answer them because of all of the award-having and such. So here goes nothing:
Questions Asked to Me
1. What's the weirdest Halloween costume you've ever had?
Uh, I was The Log Lady in middle school. Don't know who she is? For shame. She was awesome and so was Twin Peaks. Also, I got to wear a sweater and carry a log, two things that aren't uncommon in October in Michigan. Don't be jealous of my life.
|Can you see the resemblance?|
2. Which high school stereotype were you? (nerd, jock, cheerleader, etc.)
Ok, I know this sounds weird, but I'm not sure I fit any of them because I'm not very self-aware. Like, for example, I'm athletic, but I also play the violin. And my friends were all over the place in what they did, too. They were on the football team, basketball team, in National Honors Society, in theater. We were all over the place. Also, we were awesome. OR, we were giant losers and didn't know it. Remember when I was the Log Lady? You decide.
3. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Morning person for sure. Poor CB.
4. What do you do when you have writer's block?
Um...I don't write anything. Also, then I usually go online and watch Tina Fey accept her Mark Twain award and, if I'm not inspired, at least I laugh a lot. No joke, I do this at least once a month.
5.What's your favorite children's book?
The Giving Tree. OR The Missing Piece Meets the Big O (that sounds dirty but I swear it's not.)
6. What's one TV show you are embarrassed to like?
There are several, however, I believe I watch many shows that should embarrass me but don't. I'll admit, though, that I have recently watched three entire episodes of Married to Jonas and I'm really ashamed of myself. Like, for real. (also, new episode on Sunday!)
7.Where do you really want to visit?
Ireland. Greece. Fiji. My parents. My sister. My friends who live far, far away. Oh! And London. And Paris. And Brazil. And Tokyo. And China. And Iceland. And The Netherlands. And Costa Rica. And....
8. What is one way you consider your blog to be successful?
If people get a laugh here and there to help them through their day.
9. What super power would you love to have?
Ok, for real, this question came up at the Christmas dinner table last year and I made the whole thing really tedious by explaining that I've never been able to come up with an answer to this question and it stresses me out. And then my family proceeded to name every super power they could think of just so I could tell them why I wouldn't want it until everyone at the table secretly hated me and my inability to just have fun with this question. Finally, after hours (for real), I decided that I would like my super power to be the ability to change super powers whenever I wanted. I'm a genius. Also, I'd like my super power to not be a complete pain in the you-know-what during every waking moment of my life. It's a tall order.
10. Would you prefer to work in a circus or be an astronaut?
Is this even a real question? Obviously the astronaut one and the reason is twofold: (a) everyone is terrified of clowns, and by association, everything having to do with the circus (except cotton candy) and (b) Apollo 13 has been on a lot and I totally want to be an astronaut in the 60s.
11. Why did you pick your topic for your blog?
Because I have an unusual amount of stories about my underpants. Obviously.
Thanks again! I'm going to keep an eye out for other bloggers who are deserving (and not followed!) and will pass it along!
