And then I won an award while I was sleeping.

It's Tuesday and I'm blogging so you know that this must be a special occasion. Thanks to Gina over at The Life I Live...So You Don't Have To , I've been given the Reader Appreciate Award! 

Also, I'm not gonna lie - I accidentally took a Tylenol PM this morning for a headache and so I might actually be sleep-typing this. I'm just saying. 

Ok, so 10 questions were given to me to answer from Gina, so without further ado, here are the answers to my questions:

Who is your favorite author, and why?
My sister. She's just not published yet. 

What is one book that you would recommend to someone else, and why?
Ok, so this totally depends on who I'm recommending to. We all know my love for Stori Telling by Tori Spelling. But I'm pretty sure CB is never going to read that. Nor would he ever read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling, also one of my favorites, or Bossypants, which I actually think everyone should read. So I really have to know my audience here.

Oh, also, I sometimes read stuff by people who haven't been on television. 

Am I recommending to Courtney? Then anything I just mentioned above, which I'm pretty sure she read after I said "Read it!", because I'm the boss of her.  But if I'm recommending to my parents or CB, something a little deeper (though I did send my mom Bossypants and she cried from laughter. Not surprising, since she raised me.) 

Anyway, I loved The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, and The Portable Dorothy Parker, just to name a few. But I don't have an all-time favorite book. That's just too limiting! 

Or, if you don't trust my taste, which boggles the mind, you could find a wide range of book ideas at the book blog here. 

What is your favorite movie, and why?
Ok, I can't narrow this down to just one because that would be mean to the others. If you've read this blog for any amount of time, you can probably figure out that I love "Sleepless in Seattle" and "Dirty Dancing." And, to be fair to me and my tastes, I just haven't seen some classics like "Annie Hall." I was too busy watching romantic comedies so that I could shape the future of my love life in a really healthy way. 

But, if I had to choose just one, which really isn't fair, it'd be "When Harry Met Sally." I mean, was it even a contest? 

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Honestly, I'm really happy where I live right now. No complaints! But I'd love to have a getaway up in Vermont. Or Monte Carlo - same diff.

If you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be, and why?
Oh man. Really?? This is like that question where people want to know what your super power is and I can never think of a super power so I just say that I want my super power to be that I want to be able to change my super power whenever it's convenient. 

Notice how I didn't answer the question there? Yeah, let's blame it on the Tylenol PM and the fact that I may be asleep with my eyes open right now. 

If today was the last day of your life, how would you choose to spend it?
Not sleep-typing. 

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would change the fact that I do not ever have an inside voice, like, ever. And that I sometimes forget that certain thoughts are for the inside. 

What impact do you want to leave on the world?
My awesome dance skilz. 

What is one fear that is holding you back?
The fear that I am actually asleep while typing this. Which actually would be awesome because then I would know that I could totally still function while sleeping which I would immediately then get patented because that's incredible and I'll retire and sleep-live all day long. 

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
"The Girl Who Hated Pants." 

Ok, so I'm supposed to nominate others and ask them questions, but instead I'm just going to direct you to some of the blogs I check out regularly - actually, some of them are there on the right-hand side under "Stuff I Like." Also, make sure you click on Gina's link and send her some love, she's always been a big supporter of this blog and I can't thank her enough! 

But I also wouldn't be anywhere without my loyal followers, some of whom have blogs of their own! Here they are below (also, if you want to follow me by joining this site, please do! Or you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. I'm all over this social networking thing! I think.)


  1. thanks for the shout-out. I, too, enjoy so many movies and books, I could never narrow it down to one. But... if there's a movie with Johnny Depp in it? I'm so there!

  2. Thanks for the mention! And I agree... everyone should read Bossypants!
