Another Liebster Award Nomination And Questions

Last week, I was nominated for a Liebster Award, which helps blogs gain followers and awareness. Thursday, I was nominated again by Penny over at Paleopix. Thanks, Penny!

The version of the award she was nominated for is a bit different from the one I encountered earlier. Here are the rules:

11 random facts about me:

  2. I used to be a backpack journalist.
  3. My favorite animal is a coyote.
  4. I’m addicted to diet soda.
  5. I’m 5-feet tall.
  6. I’m obsessed with Japanese toys called “squishies,” which are like cute stress balls, but way softer and more fun to play with. See what I mean, here.
  7. I’d love to live in the mountains away from people, and only venture into town when I really needed to.
  8. I like metal music, as well as classic rock, and jam bands.
  9. My favorite food is gnocchi, closely followed by lo mein.
  10. I love, love, LOVE horror movies, TV shows, and novels.
  11. I wish dragons still existed. They totally did once, you know.

My answers to Penny’s 11 questions:

  1. Got any hobbies? What do you do when you have a day to play around? I used to sew and make jewelry a lot, but now I mainly read and write in my free time. I also like taking photos.
  2. How about pets? Anything more exotic than dogs or cats? I have a guinea pig named Alexander Pygmalion Amadeus Horowitz. My family also has an indoor cat named Callie and a feral cat who adopted us named Runt.
  3. Sports: Watch or participate? Or neither? Pretty much neither, but I’ve been known to enjoy watching hockey.
  4. Original Star Wars (Episodes 4-6) or new Star Wars (Episodes 1-3)? Umm… please. Original Star Wars.
  5. What part of the world would you most like to visit? All of it. But Italy, Scotland, and New Zealand are at the top of the list.
  6. Do you think there is life in other parts of the universe? I don’t see why not.
  7. What’s your favorite season? Autumn. It’s not too hot and not too cold. Plus, I was born in Autumn.
  8. If you had the chance, would you go back to school to study something new? What? I think I’d either focus more on public relations and marketing, or go for museum studies.
  9. What’s the strangest thing you have sitting out in your dining room? Some of my cat’s toy mice are pretty strange…
  10. What’s your favorite type of music? Whoops! I answered this above–metal, classic rock, jam bands. I also dig some bluegrass.
  11. If you could go back in time, when and where would you visit? The Renaissance in England.
