Liebster Award

Awesome sauce! I got nominated for a Liebster award from the amazingly cool Usagi from Usagi in Wonderland

"What is this Liebster Award?" you ask:

"Well, it is only an AWESOME award given to up and coming bloggers. Given by other up and coming bloggers. It's a cool way to find other blogs and feel like you are getting into the blogging stratosphere. It is simple, you get nominated by someone else, mention their page and a link to their blog in your Liebster Award Post, answer the 11 questions they give you, then tag 11 other nominees and give them a new set of 11 questions to answer."

So with that, let's get this started!!

1. What is your favorite quote? Both are from Lucas in Empire Records. The first: "Who knows where thoughts come from. They just appear." And of course:

2. What is on your bucket list that you want to cross off this year? There are a few, but number one, is to cosplay, second is to go completely platinum blonde (a la Storm, Elsa and Daenerys), third: ROAD TRIP with the Tenor.

I need to make one that has all three of my favorite platinum ladies.
Found on Pinterest. Wish to credit.
3. If you were a pizza, what toppings would you be? LOL! This is a good one! Cheesy, cause I’m pretty dorky and tell cheesy jokes. Garlic because I HATE mosquitos. Mosquitos tend to avoid you if you’ve eaten garlic I've been told, so, win! Artichoke cause I have layers (and it’s REALLY good on pizza); shrimp cause…well, I’m short (and it’s delicious).
Ok, I officially want pizza now.

4. Which TV show are you loving so much right now and hope it doesn't get cancelled? GOSH! I feel like I might jinx it, but Sleepy Hollow has some great potential (but, it is on Fox, and i don't trust those bastards). Arrow, S.H.I.E.L.D., Grimm and Sherlock (there BETTER be a fourth season...

I almost: Laughed my head off! (pun 100% intended!)

5. Which film(s) are you looking forward to this year? Captain America: Winter Soldier; Mr. Peabody and Sherman (HUGE Rocky and Bullwinkle fan, and I LOVED their shorts on the show). But VERONICA MARS has to be the big one!
How I feel as the date gets nearer!

6. Have you see The Lego Movie yet? (BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME!!) Alas, not yet. **hangs head in shame**


7. Who is your current celebrity crush? Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale, and Billie Joe Armstrong (always).

8. Are you a Zombie, Vampire, or Werewolf fan? Vampires! Totally! I like werewolves too. And, I will admit I have an irrational fear of zombies. I hate it because I know it's irrational, but I am scared of the zombie runs and it's on the "no fly list" for pranks to pull on me (I don't trust what my reaction would be...just saying. 'Tis a warning). But I'm a bit self-torturing in this regard as I am always curious about zombie films/shows, and I do like The Walking Dead.

But yeah, Vampires...gotta love 'em.
And there goes my weekend...probably going to binge-watch this...again.

9. Why do you blog? Honestly: the people. It's going to sound cheesy (see question 3) but its so awesome to meet and read everyone's blogs and see how we are all similar and different. Learning about people's different perspectives, and, challenging my own ways of thinking and rational. 
Also, it's very much a release for me. I get to have fun, be creative and still I need a deadline. Since I am trying to be healthy, I also like how a blog "holds me accountable" and that's REALLY motivating.

10. What do you hope to accomplish with blogging? Meet new friends and people; get healthy; self-discovery. Most importantly: I'm having fun with it! Meeting like-minded and yet, still different-minded people so we can bounce ideas off of one another, and still learn from, and offer perspectives we might not otherwise hear.
Gangsta'!

11. What do you want to improve in 2014? (Photography skills, write some more, travel, etc.) 
I would like to improve a lot, but I am most definitely working on physical fitness and being healthy and COSPLAY!

      The Pizza Song is from an Olsen Twins thing. Someone showed it to me and it was horrible and funny all at once!

  8. Omg! Haha, well first of all. I love that your favorite quotes are from Empire Records. I loved the Lucasisms from that movie. I agree with you absolutely about Benedict Cumberbatch, and I totally also like vampires the best. (Zombies ARE scary, even though they aren't real! Good thing they are easy to kill! Lol!)

    Secondly, I have also been nominated for the Liebster blog award from another blogger. Thank you for nominating me, too! I enjoyed reading your answers, and am also intrigued by your answer to why you blog. I would also love to answer your questions in the same post as well, but you're probably going to have to wait a little bit longer now since I am still answering Sarah's questions, too.

    Thanks again! @w@
    "Oh Rexy, you're so sexy." I laugh every time I think of that music video in the movie.
    This is a rambling comment! HAH
