Sunshine Blogger Award

I’ve been a bad participant in the blogging community lately.  By my count, Christa (A Voluptuous Mind) nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award nearly 3 months ago.  What can I say—2016 was off to a majorly rocky start.


I really do like these Q and A type posts, though, and I appreciate the love!  Here I go (at last) answering Christa’s questions:

1.  Who would play you in the made-for-tv movie of your life, and why?

Ingrid Bergman so I’d have a cool Swedish accent and look effortlessly classy.  HEY.  There’s time for me to acquire both of those skills.  Would also accept Lucy Lawless as she’s such a badass.  Possibly Tina Fey as well since she’s the queen of eye rolls.  Basically everyone.  Can we make this an I’m Not There scenario and have a different actor for each segment?

2.  If you had to be stuck in a lift with one person for 12 hours who would it be (it can be anybody, alive or dead)?

Margaret Atwood b/c she would tell the best stories.  Even if I didn’t get along with her latest novel.  I am SO pumped for the MaddAddam miniseries.

3.  If you could only have one album on your MP3 player for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Oooooooooooooooh, I think it would have to be Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.  I never get tired of it.  He goes through the entire range of emotions, and “Harmony” is one of my favorite songs in existence, and I’m still not sure if it’s a happy or sad song.

4.  How do you deal with stress? (Asking for a friend)

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally badly.  I am incredibly good at self-pityingly watching Youtube clips and baking cookies…for myself.  As a wise woman once told me, “Pick your fucks.”  I mostly refuse to get stressed about things anymore because I’m really mean to myself when I get stressed.  Taking a walk actually really helps too, and giving my cat Bertha Mason a squeeze (but not too hard).

5.  If you were releasing your own signature scent, what 3 ingredients would you insist on including?

Lemon, and let’s be real…cat hair.  B/c it would be in there whether or not you intend it to be.  Some kind of papery/book-y smell would be appropriate too since I depend on them both personally and professionally.

6.  You find £50 on the street, no wallet, no witnesses – what do you do?

Keep it but feel paranoid about it for the rest of my life.  Like I would probably break into a sweat every time I saw a cop car and eventually bury it like it was Jumanji.

7.  What’s your greatest quality?

I am organized AF and get shit done when I set my mind to it.


8.  And your worst? (In your eyes)

I loathe confrontation and will do almost anything to avoid it, including acting like a complete doormat.

9.  Name 3 things you bloody love about your physical appearance – GO!

Eyebrows—I usually don’t have time to pencil them in, but when I do, I try to make them look super, super thick to an almost Wolfman level.  Weird?  IDGAF, I really love thick eyebrows on women.

Hair—mostly because I wash it and do very little else to it, and it still has moments of brilliance.

Calves—big and strong.  Working on this one b/c I’ve never been crazy about my legs, but they literally support me, so it’s only right for me to appreciate them a bit more.

10.  If you had to sleep with one of the main characters in The Big Bang Theory, who would you pick? (Leonard, Sheldon, Raj or Howard/Penny, Amy or Bernadette? The little Comic Book Guy?)

This is challenging because I find all of them quite grating.  Probably Amy even though the actress is a vegan (I know…I’m trying to overcome my bigotry).

11.  Are you a Belieber? (Discuss)

Not especially, but I do find “Love Yourself” ridiculously catchy.  I feel the Bieb is definitely improving with age (though that’s a ridiculous statement to make about a 22-year-old).

Okay, if I have to come up with questions and nominate other bloggers, I am literally never going to post this.

Thanks, Christa, for nominating me!  A little shout-out to Hayley of A Stitch to Scratch as well, definitely a major part of  my blogosphere.  And thank you, readers, for bearing with me.

  1. Amazing answers you bloody crazy genius! I love them all. Also, I hate confrontation so people think I’m a doormat, then I explode in the least flattering way making everything way way worse. Love your self loving answers and Bergman wishes she was even half as cool as you (or would have) xo
