The Liebster Award

I seem to be the master of procrastination as of late... Waiting until the evening on last day of March to actually write this post and all that. (I spent lunch time and upwards making the picture so I was technically working on it... Sorta.)

Anyway, on to the actual post!

Thank you Jane for nominating me (or is it 'tagging'? Or is it just 'award/ed/ing'? Oh well.) and for letting me come on your magical floating island!

Whoops... Try to not think 'Frozen' when you look at this picture... Also, is it just me or does that font make it look like 'lobster' instead of 'liebster'?

The Rules:

~ Link back to the person who tagged you.

~ Answer 11 questions.
~ Try To Tag 11 bloggers.

~ Ask them 11 questions.

~ Let them know you've tagged them.

~ Have Fun.

The Questions:

~ What's the last song you listened to?

Hmm... I think it was 'Don't Want to Live for Me' by Moriah Peters.

It's really cool.

~ What are some of your favourite book covers?

To be honest, I don't think I really have a favourite...

I do really like this one though:

Not My Picture... Obviously
Such a beautiful mixture of colours! And the lighting! *dies of happiness*

Okay... so maybe it is my favourite after all.

~ What's the weirdest book you've ever read?

Er... For some reason 100 Cupboards keeps coming to mind... I guess having 100 magical cupboards that teleport you to different realms in one's bedroom is kind of weird.

~ What's a job you dreamed of having as a kid?

Hmm... How early are we talking? The earliest I can remember actually going: 'Oh wow, I wanna be one of those.' was when I was around the age 6 to... I dunno, 8 maybe...? I was watching a Barney movie (Shush) where they were writing stories for... something or other. And they just started talking about what writers did and how they were called 'authors' and so forth.

I thought it was such an awesome sounding job that a few days later I declared to my family that I wanted to be an "Arthur" too and started writing my own little stories... None of which I will post on here because...  Ergh. *shudders*

Thanks Barney!

(And no.... that wasn't a spelling mistake. I actually did think an 'Author' and 'Arthur' was the exact same thing.)

~ Do you like pizza?

What is this "like" stuff?

I LOVE pizza!

~ Are you any good in the kitchen?

I sure like to think so.

Probably good enough to be able to survive off the pantry by myself for a few days... providing I'm not stranded in the bush or on a deserted island. (Floating ones don't count... I'm sure there would be lots of magical fruit that wouldn't need cooking.)

~ In a group of people are you more likely to be silent, talking or cracking jokes?

I really don't know...? I think I'm a mixture of all of them... Depending on who I'm with of course.

~ If any fictional character could be your best friend, who would it be?

Ooooooh.... Tricky. So, so, so, so, many to choose from!

I think I'll go with Jenny from Ranger's Apprentice. She's pretty cool.

~What's an interesting/random quirk you have?

Well, whenever I'm on the computer I somehow always find myself chewing on my headphones cable... Or chewing on my lip if said cable is not in reach.

~ Generally speaking do you use a bookmark or random piece of paper?

Pretty much whatever is around me be it a (unused!) tissue, a scrap of paper, a closed pen, an actual bookmark, another smaller book, a slice of pizza... wait.

~ Do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks? Why?

Paperback! Always and forever paperback... Must be the smell of the paper or something, plus its nice to flick through. For some reason, I've always found the sound of paper against paper oddly satisfying as I turn the page.

~The End of Questions.~

Hmm... I think I'll tag... I KNOW!

Corey @ CJR Odyssey and Zach @ Zach's Abode

But since neither of you gentlemen have done the other stuff I tagged/nominated ye for, I think I'll leave it open for anyone who wishes to do it (be it once more or for the first time).

I'll also tag Alice @ Hope In Our Savour ... You don't have to do it if ye do not wish to :)

Here Be Your Questions:

  1. Do you know where these Awards/Tags things ever originated? If not, do you have a theory?
  2. If your town flooded over and you could dive through the sunken buildings, what would you try to retrieve?
  3.  What is your favourite home cooked meal?
  4.  Cats or Dogs? Or neither?
  5.  What did you have for lunch yesterday?
  6. What's the best bit of advice you've ever received?
  7. Top five favourite books?
  8. What's your earliest memory?
  9. What time do you wake up in the morning?
  10. If by some strange magical reason there was only to be one season each year, which would you like it to be?
  11.  Do you think The Liebster Award could be easily mistaken for The Lobster Award?
