So it seems the Liebster Award questionnaire is going around again. I participated in this a few years ago with music related questions. I always find it fun to answer questions, of any kind, so when zee’s muse suggested her readers answer a set, I thought “why not?”
because I have things to say, dan it! (that was a Freudian slip but I’m leaving it there)
Zee is a friend from the Richard Armitage fandom but I’m going to pepper my answers with Dan Stevens gifs, because they’ve been accumulating on my hard drive with no occasion for me to use them. I hope she doesn’t mind.
1.) What excites you at the moment?
2.) In one sentence, what depresses you at the moment?
In one year, my son will graduate High School.
yesterday he was 14, today he’s 17. there’s sorcery involved, I’m sure of it!
3.) Cats or Dogs? piccies please.
4.) What tv series did you love in your youth?
Mork & Mindy
5.) Who is your favorite actor/actress no longer living?
6.) What is the best movie you’ve seen so far in 2017?
7.) The top three theatre/concert experiences you’ve ever had.
B-52s, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Lollapalooza
B-52s because it was a small turn out & it started to rain, so they invited those out on the lawn to move into the pavilion & then encouraged us to stand on the seats and just have a silly good time.
Rocky Horror Picture Show because I went several times and it was always late at night (Midnight showing) so everyone I was with tended to get slap happy. Drinking over caffeinated Jolt helped as well, I’m sure.
Lollapalooza because I got to see Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam in the same concert, while also being totally grossed out by people shoving nails up their noses and swallowing fire on the side show stages.
not really but it was memorable!
8.) What is the best book you’ve read in the past year?
see, here’s the thing…
I can’t remember what it was called. I know it was a romance novel about a psychic that saw a little boy & his dog lost in the wilderness. She connects him to a bachelor rancher, convinced that he’s his son, but the rancher doesn’t believe her until a story hits the news about a senator & his family missing due to a boating accident, and the Senator’s fiancee just so happens to be someone this rancher had a long term relationship with. Anyway, my Mother-in-Law left it at my house, so I read it, and it was surprisingly good.
9.) What is your favorite photo of the last week on your mobile phone and are you willing to share it?
I don’t have a mobile phone. I share one with my husband and only use it to text my son when he’s late for dinner. If I tweak the question to apply to my laptop though, this is the latest pic I saved:
I was bored and so on a whim, I typed my very small hometown (population: 500) into Google Images and found this pic of my favorite thing to play on at the playground when I was young. The internet is a wonderful thing.
10.) my favorite dessert?
11.) Favorite Richard Armitage pictures
At the end of Zee’s post she hinted that her questions from the last Liebster round never got answered and so maybe someone would feel moved to do so this time around. I picked 5 off of that list.
1) A gift you regifted (and how quickly and why?)
A one piece hat/scarf thing from my Mother-in-Law.
It was very soft and pretty but not my style at all so I regifted it, just a few weeks later, to my friend. Because she actually dresses like a woman instead of a 15 year old boy, like me.
someone who will choose comfort over fashion every.single.time.
2) Balin or Oin?
because he looks like Santa Claus
3) Do you REALLY want to see the Silmarillion done in movie(s)?
Yes, so I can finally understand what’s going on.
me, pretending the timeline doesn’t confuzzle me
4) Mozart or Haydn or Beethoven? (Cross your eyes if you can’t tell the difference)
Zee, the music teacher, being so done with me.
5.) Your New Year’s Resolution list
seeing as how it’s May and not January, my ‘Summer’ to do list is:
-lose 30 pounds
-organize my photo albums
-Iron all the shirts (some have been in the basket for two years and counting)
don’t judge me!
Bonus, because Zee likes Beefcake
