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.
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. :)
6.) Marlene E
7.) Pure Grace
