I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Ceridwin Silverhart at Illuminating the Fool’s Mirror. I’m slowly reading through some of her more recent posts, and there’s some interesting stuff about mythology and the like.
Here are the rules:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions given to you.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers and write them 11 new questions.
- List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your blog post.
I have to admit I’m really terrible about tagging people in things, both because most of the people I know who used to blog don’t anymore, and because I’ve always had weird anxiety about calling people out, even if it’s to pay a compliment. I would like to ask some questions, though, so let me know if you’re interested.
1. Which would you rather watch, a sunrise or a sunset? I’d say sunset, since I wouldn’t have to get up early.
2. How much do you organize your tools? Not much at all. I’m pretty disorganized, except in a few select areas.
3. If you could name a star, what would you call it? Something Oz-related. Maybe Ozma.
4. With TV or book series, how important is it to you to start at the beginning versus starting wherever you happen to discover it? As a kid, there were quite a few book series I read out of order, and I don’t think I enjoyed them any less that way. Now I’m more likely to at least try to start at the beginning. It really depends on the particular series how much knowledge of the back story you even need.
5. What’s the weirdest animal encounter you’ve had? Hmm, can’t really think of one offhand. It was kind of weird when I heard a skunk sneeze at the Marsh Trail in Secaucus.
6. If you had to give up one sense, what would it be? Out of the main five, I guess I’d say smell, as I feel I don’t use it as much as the others. Obviously I’d prefer to keep it, though.
7. If you could have one sense from another species, what would it be? Always landing on my feet would be pretty cool.
8. If someone told you they had magical powers or were a magical/supernatural creature, would you believe them and with what evidence? Probably not, although I might want to. I’m not entirely sure how much evidence I’d need, but I’d be inclined to think it was a trick.
9. If you were stuck in isolation, which three of these things would you most want to have with you: other humans, your phone or other device, your pet(s), a year’s supply of books, crafting supplies, exercise equipment, or curious but harmless wild animals? I’d want to have my wife and pets with me. Would it be cheating to say that I could read books on an electronic device?
10. Which of these magical items would you most want to own: a door that opens to any room you choose, a cloak of invisibility, a cauldron that produces any food, a mirror that shows the truth, or a shield that makes you invulnerable? I think the cauldron, as I can’t cook that much. I used to think a lot about invisibility as a kid, but as an adult, it seems kind of creepy, even though there would be some innocuous uses for it.
11. What is worth waiting for? Many things are, but I usually prefer not to wait if I have the option.
