The lovely poetess tsena has nominated me for the Reader Appreciation Award! (Many thanks again to you, my dear.) Her blog, succumbing, is a place to find my favorite kind of naturally rhythmic blank verse poetry. I love her plays on words and unusual phrasing! Definitely check it out if you enjoy reading poetry and occasionally stuff that is not poetry but also interesting.
So the Reader Appreciation Award works like this:
1. Include the award logo somewhere in your blog.
2. Answer these 10 questions, below, for fun if you want to.
3. Nominate 10 to 12 blogs you enjoy. Or you pick the number.
4. Pay the love forward: Provide your nominee’s link in your post and comment on their blog to let them know they’ve been included and invited to participate.
5. Pay the love back with gratitude and a link to the blogger(s) who nominated you.
- What is your favourite colour?
Purple! Also green. Gem tones, really.
- What is your favourite animal?
This one! (The adorable puppy using me as a pillow)
Haha seriously though, I love all animals. Favorite domestic animal is still generally a cat, but my boyfriend is allergic (but someday we might get a hairless cat, assuming he’s allergic to dander rather than saliva!), so I have my darling puppy instead. His name is Jay. But my favorite wild animal is almost certainly the barn owl. They’re freaking amazing.
- What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?
My answer to this used to be Mountain Dew, but I’ve given up soda until I can be moderate about it. So…water?
- Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook. I’m on Twitter sometimes but I just can’t get over the fact that it updates so quickly. I mean, sometimes Facebook is like that but not always.
- Favorite pattern?
Umm…I can’t say that I really have one. Patterns aren’t something I think about much. Of course, I’m thinking that what is meant by “pattern” is like, for clothes and upholstery. Or something.
- Do you prefer getting or giving presents?
Giving. I get anxious sometimes about what to get people, but once I’ve figured it out I tend to go a little overboard. It’s just so much fun!
- Favorite number?
Two. I have no logical explanation for this whatsoever.
- Favorite day of the week?
Monday, for no apparent reason.
- Favorite flower?
I like orchids. They’re pretty and weird-looking, and occasionally dangerous.
- What is your passion?
Life, knowledge, experience, whatever you want to call it. My highest goal is to be good to myself and others and just enjoy my life.
