The Liebster Blog Award!

The lovely Natasha awarded me:

Aww, thanks! :)

1. You must post eleven facts about yourself.
2. You must also answer the eleven questions the awarder has given you and make up eleven questions for your awardees to answer in turn.
3. Tag eleven fellow bloggers
4. Notify them that you've awarded them
5. No tagging back
6. And the eleven blogs you tag must have less than 200 followers.

Right. Okay, so eleven facts about myself... 

1.) I quote movies compulsively. 

2.) I'm shy in the weirdest way. For example, I have the hardest time going into the grocery store by myself... BUT if someone irritates me, I can win a stare down with a complete stranger no problem. 

3.) When I form opinions about something, man... I stick to them. I'm a very black-and-white person, things are either right or wrong and there is no grey area in between. ('Cept in rare cases.) 

4.) I am so fond of Equilibrium, but I can't recommend it to many people because it's pretty... dark. (in case the cover didn't give that away) The fight scenes are way over the top, but it's by far better than the Matrix (which I watched with my brother and decided never to make that mistake again... Keanu Reeves is not a strong actor and the plot was lame.)

5.) I find bloopers or gag reels to be the best special feature on movies. 

6.) I'm left handed when I write and draw, but do everything else with my right hand. Go figure, eh? 

7.) I find people falling down absolutely hilarious. (Providing they don't actually get hurt. Then I feel bad for laughing)

8.) I fractured my left wrist in June when I was nine, and broke my elbow in two places that September. It was a sad, sad story. (And I was so angry when I broke the elbow because I had just gotten the cast off my wrist like two weeks before.)

9.) I type on an average of 62-65 words per minute. THANK YOU, MAVIS BEACON!

10.) I have over a hundred first cousins. No joke. 

11.) I am secretly a porcupine............. in disguise. 

Okay, now for Tasha's questions. 

1.) What is your favorite season? (spring/summer/fall/winter)
      oooooh. I like summer the best, but fall comes in a close second

2.) Do you watch more British TV shows or American?
     Hmm. Well, we're pretty even when it comes to that. A lot of the time I prefer British to American because their humor appeals to me more. But overall, it's about even. 

3.) What's your everyday hairstyle? A ponytail? A braid? A bun?
     I vary. Braid, buns, and just leaving it down are my usuals. 

4.) Do you sew most of your own clothes or buy them?
     I avoid sewing as much as possible if I can help it. So the answer to that would be, I buy. :)

5.) In what year did Columbus sail the ocean blue?
     Ooooh that's easy. Columbus sailed the ocean blue in fourteen hundred, ninety-two. 

6.) Favorite screen/literary couple?
     Natasha! This is hard! Okay... favorite screen couple, definitely the Braddocks from the Cinderella Man, or Rapunzel and Flynn's in Tangled. 
     Literary.... Oh, James and Lark's from Lark, and Peaceable and Barbara's from Sherwood Ring

7.) Which is your favorite/most read book of the Bible? (Not including Psalms or Proverbs ;)
     Erm.... the Apocalypse. "And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars..." That's beautiful, no?

8.) Your favorite TV show when you were a child?
     Oh, I liked Star Trek: the Original Series, my dad watched them a lot when he'd get off work. Good memories, people!

9.) Least favorite vegetable? 
     Greenbeans! Ugh, I can't eat the revolting things. 

10.) Do you watch the Marvel superhero films? If so, which is your favorite super hero and why?
     Yes. I watch them. They are AWESOME! 
     Of them, I really honestly cannot decide who's my favorite, they all have their moments of epic-ness.
     BUT Captain America is my favorite hero just because he is the only one of them who is a true hero in my mind. He was a hero before he was hero material. Jumping on that grenade? C'mon, people. Who wouldn't love him? 

11.) Do you think bow ties are cool? 
       I know that is a Doctor Who reference, but since I haven't seen that episode, I'm going to say, nah. Bow ties are only cool when worn by guys from the 'forties. Other wise I prefer:

 Phew! That took longer than I was expecting. :)

Now, for the 11 questions for those I will award:

1.) Who's you're favorite musician and why? (Does not include singers this time.)
2.) Do you think the Beatles overrated?
3.) Did you ever want to be a Ginger?
4.) QUICK! PICK A NUMBER BETWEEN ONE AND TEN! Now, why did you chose that one? Why!? WHY?!?
5.) How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
6.) Who started the American Navy? 
7.) What's your favorite music genre? 
8.) Have you ever played baseball? (even in the backyard with friends works.)
9.) What are your top five favorite books? (because I know that I can never chose just one)
10.) What is your favorite accent?
11.) Do you know the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything?

And now for my awardees. :)

1.) Cat
2.) Rose
4.) Mel
5.) Mahri
6.) Marlene E
8.) Hilda
9.) Amy
10.) Sophie
11.) Anna

THERE! I did it! I managed to tag all eleven people! I haven't been able to reach my quota on these things the past few times. :) 

Ooh, and as a random aside.... Did blogger eat anyone else's pageviews? I was almost at 4000 and I logged on to write this post and it said............ 4!!!!.

Bloggeeeerrrrr!!!!! How could you? Now I have to start all over! 

And there. 

I have ranted.



  1. Haha thanks for the award and your answers were highly entertaining! The porcupine was my favorite. :) And the occasionly being shy thing, because im like that too! Sometimes i can go up and say random things to strangers and other times I'm scared to go through a checkout line by myself. haha. Its odd. But im working on it. XD haha.

    As for the 11 questions, ill try to include them on tomorow's post if I have time to. And blogger did alear away the pageviews i had from yesterday and my profile views. :( It made me sad too, but i guess in the grand scheme of things its not a huge deal.

    1. Hee! It is HARD coming up with 11 previously unknown things about me to disclose. :) So don't worry about it if you can't manage to get around to this award, yeah?

      I know it's not a huge big deal. I was simply a little depressed. Hahah! I'm better now. x

  2. I love your random facts list!! :D I absolutely agree/do the same thing/ can totally relate to almost al of them.
    Cute answers! I'm glad you don't think bowties are cool...I don't mind them on some guys, but Matt Smith? nah. :P
    Awh! Thanks for the Tag! I'm looking forward to doing this! (prolly this afternoon. ^_^)
    YES! It *did* eat my pageviews! I was spazzing out about it yesterday 'cause I had almost 12,000 and it kept telling me I only had 17. :/ It's all better this morning though. I'm so relieved. *sigh* I hope you got yours back! :P <3
    thanks again!

    1. Haha, thanks. :) Well now, it's nice to know that *someone* out there is as odd as me.
      Lol, I find bowties to looks a little.... stifling? Pompous? Not awesome. :)

      I did get mine back! Woogles! I was like. YESSSSSSSSSSSS! :)

  3. Thanks for the tag. Your answers were so cute and unique. I hope I can do as well!!!

    I dont' know if it ate mine or not cause I didn't get on my blog yesterday. But today everything is all fine, so, who knows.... :D

    I love you blog. You make me laugh. :D

    1. Awww, thanks, Grace! I did try to make them fairly unique-ish, since there are quite a lot of these thingies going around. :) And it is SO nice to know that what I write is funny to other people besides myself! x

      Well... I might have ranted too soon. My views are back. :)

  4. too bad I can't answer any of those questions... I can't even get tagged :( unless you make an exception **Hint hint** Oh so you're a porcupine; that explains a lot!

  5. LOL that's hilarious what you said at the end. And thank you for awarding me the Liebster Blog. Only problem is that I know less than 11 people. Most of my followers don't even follow me. But I'll post the award and answer your questions. :)

    Thanks again! :)

    1. Hehe, cool. :) Well, if you don't know 11, don't sweat it, I've been cheating on these things for the past few times now. :)

      Can't wait to see your answers!

      God bless

    2. Here are my answers. :)

    3. Righty. I'll go check it out!

  6. That's weird my post didn't go through... testing...

  7. Hello, porcupine.

    YES! Someone who agrees! I always get movies and see Spacial Features and if they don't have the bloopers I feel heart broken. "Those aren't Special Features. I want the bloopers 8-("

    Kilts are hard to come by, and they cost a lot! I almost lost my jaw when I saw some prices.

    I will tell "Kirk" 8-D

    OH! THAT'S Donny Osmond! I've heard of him before! I think I've heard a lot of his songs too. I like them.

    I had to look him up.

    Blogger has been mean lately, if there was something to eat, it probably ate it. I hope it is nicer now.


    1. Hehe, I do the exact same thing: NO BLOOPERS!? WHYYYYYYYYYYY?

      Yeah. Real kilts are like.... seriously 'spensive.

      Oooh, tell Kirk he also reminds me of Tintin. Hhahahaha.

      :) xx

    2. What is the point of a movie with no bloopers? It is like having cake without ice cream...which I do, but that is besides the point.

      Kirk feels honoured to remind someone of Tintin 8-D

      And out of all my characters, Peter is one of the nicest. He's so sweet sometimes I worried he'd would step back and let the bad guys kill him.


    3. There isn't. :-)

      Well! You just tell Peter that he'd better NOT let the bad guys kill him! He's much to nice do so silly of a thing. :)

  8. Our blog did the page view eating, too! We had 20000!!!! Gone! But it gave them back, and it's all good. Hope the same will happen to you. :)

    1. It did. Thanks for hoping. It worked! :D

  9. Check out my new blog post tomorow, i have your questions all answered and ready to be posted tomorow morning! :)

  10. Hahahahaha! Wow. Mavis Beacon. It's been foreeever since I've thought about her.

    Eeeeeek! I love the Sherwood Ring! Best book EVER. Besides ... you know, the hundreds of other books that are also the best ever. Anyway. I want to read it again =)

    1. Teehee. She's awesome, is Mavis Beacon. I think it's good for kids these days to know how to type well.

      I LOVE the Sherwood Ring! All the ghosts were amazing... and Pat? Whoooooooooooot. They're so kewl.

      Thanks for the comment. :)

  11. 62-65 WPM! *Sticks out tongue.* You know, reading this post, you actually are a kinda fun/interesting person. Hehe.
