The Sunshine Award

Evie has nominated me for the Sunshine Award on her blog A Period Drama Fangirl.  Thank you, Evie!  Here are my answers to your questions:

What was the last thing you bought? 

Toothpaste, ibuprofen, a box of fudgecicles, and some antibiotics.  (Hey, guess what I have again?)

Would you rather meet Jennifer Ehle (Lizzy Bennet) or Colin Firth (Mr Darcy)?

I would rather meet Lizzy Bennet than Jennifer Ehle, and Colin Firth than Mr. Darcy.  I think Lizzy would be a lot of fun to talk to and hang out with, but Mr. Darcy might frighten me with his brusqueness.  I have no real interest in meeting Jennifer Ehle, but if I met Colin Firth, I could get his autograph for my best friend.

If you could have any job, what would you want to do/be? 

Other than what I do now, I assume you mean?  I'd love to work at a movie theater or a book store.  I used to want to work at a video rental store, but those barely exist anymore, so that's probably out.

Are you a morning person or a night owl? 

A morning person.  I spent my college years trying to be a night owl, but once I graduated, I reverted.  I wake up happy, am my most productive in the morning, and generally like mornings better.

If you could master any instrument what would it be?

The trumpet.  I can play it, but not well.  I'd love to be able to play this some day:

So.  This is the part where I nominate other bloggers for this award and set questions for them.  I hereby nominate:

Carissa at Musings of an Introvert
Eowyn at Captured by the Word
Heidi at Along the Brandywine
Joanna at The Squirrel's Diary
Kara at Flowers of Quiet Happiness
Maddie Rose at The Madd Rose
Monica at Spilled Ink

And here are the questions I ask you lovely ladies to answer, if you choose to accept this nomination:

1.  What is the next book you plan to read?
2.  Have you ever seen the same movie in the theater more than once?
3.  Do you prefer pirates or cowboys?
4.  Have you ever been to an ocean?
5.  You're casting a new movie version of your favorite book.  Who are your top choices for the leads?

Spread sunshine all over the place!


  1. Hello! Just letting you know I've tagged you over at my blog. :)

    1. Cool, thanks! Miss Laurie tagged me for the same challenge, so I'll answer both together :-)

  2. Always so fun to read the questions and answers for these!

    1. I have a penchant for answering quizzes and taking surveys :-)

    2. Me too. They are a lot of fun and liven up a blog!

    3. Do you want me to start tagging you, then? I always had the impression you thought they were a nuisance...

  3. Hey thanks, Hamlette! Fun answers. Yes to working in a bookstore someday! I'd love to do that. And I'm not sure I'd really want to actually meet Mr. Darcy myself. I'm thinking we wouldn't really have anything to say to one another, so we'd just stand there being awkward. Lizzy on the other hand.....I imagine she'd keep the conversation going no matter what! :)

    1. The only trouble with working in a book store would be that I would just hand them my paycheck every month and take home a stack of books :-)

  4. Hey! Thanks so much for completing the tag!!
    1. What is the next book you plan to read?
    Persuasion by Jane Austen!

    2. Have you ever seen the same movie in the theater more than once?
    Yes! I saw Saving Mr Banks twice and cried both times.

    3. Do you prefer pirates or cowboys?

    4. Have you ever been to an ocean?
    ? If you mean like the Pacific ocean, I live in Australia I am surrounded by ocean :D

    5. You're casting a new movie version of your favorite book. Who are your top choices for the leads?

    Ummmmmm Can I be satisfied with the original cast? :P (1995 sense and sensibility) :D
    That was fun!

    1. Persuasion is my favorite Austen book!

      Saving Mr. Banks made me cry too. I saw it once in the theater and once on DVD.

      Ahh, but have you been to where you could see and touch and experience the ocean? That's what I meant :-)


Agree or disagree? That is the question...
