Tag of awesomeness.

Wheeee! I was tagged! How fun is that? It's very fun. For me at least. *Grin*

Alrighty. We have a few rules here.

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their site.
2. Post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer 11 questions from the person who tagged you.
4. Ask the people you tag 11 questions.
5. Nominate 11 other blogs.

Thank you Jack! I'm excited for this tag...I really like your questions, so yay! :) 

Eleven Random Things About Myself. 

1.) I like to paint my nails red on occasion. I'm thinking about doing it today, actually.

2.) I love the movie "Moon-Spinners" with Hayley Mills. It's one of my favorite Disney movies. It may or may not have something to do with this fellow.
My sisters insist that he is scrawny. I disagree. I prefer the term 'lean.'

3.) I know a guy (Ex-Marine and my sister's Bagpipe teacher) who has offered to teach me to shoot. I'm thinking I just might take him up on the offer. :P

4.) I finished 'The Queen of Attolia' and Gen has offically been upgraded to hero. All the way. Also, I've decided that Jamie Bell would make the perfect Gen. 
That just makes me love him more--Gen I mean. ;)

5.) I drink my coffee black.

6.) I remind my family of Sid from Ice Age sometimes. *Cringe* For the most part I disagree with this. Except that line, "You know me, I'm too lazy to hold a grudge." That is pretty much me. 

7.) I have recently taken an interest in film photography! I might have to try this challenge.

8.) I live (and grew up) and a ski town, but I have never skied.

9.) Whenever I am freak out about something and I need to make myself feel better, I listen to the 'Hogan's Heroes' song. Silly, yes, but it always makes me feel better. And the last verse is awesome. 
"Never flinch, boys, never be afraid,
Heroes are not born, boys, heroes all are made.
Ask not why, boys, never say die, boys,
Answer the call, remember we'll all be heroes forever more."

10.) I am pretty indecisive. 
This. Is. Me.

11.) I really love this music video. I think  40% is actually for the song and 60% is for the clothes and setting. Most of the clothes she wears in this are lovely and sort of my favorite dress-style. Plus, the cafe looks like a wonderful little place! And now I want coffee. And a date.


Jack's Questions

1. The Doctor shows up and asks you to be his companion at the same time Sherlock asks you to be his blogger. Who'd you pick?
I'd probably travel with the Doctor...but I'd like to have a few of my sisters travel with me. ;) I love Sherlock and all, but if I became his blogger, what happens to John?

2. In the great Clara debate, who do YOU think she is. (And if you don't know who Clara is...I've two words for you. No, three. Watch Doctor Who.)
I haven't seen enough of Clara to have any theories on this yet. I've only seen her in 'the Asylum of the Daleks'...

3. You're falling off a building, which Avenger do you want to save you?
Hardest. Question. Ever. 
Well. Not the Hulk. I saw how he caught Iron Man and that didn't look all that safe or gentle. Plus, he's green. 
I think I'd want Captain America to save me. But I'd be pretty okay with Hawkeye, too.

4. Would you go for a ride in a cold, hot air balloon?
Absolutely yes. That sounds like SO MUCH FUN!

5. Does your wardrobe lead to Narnia?
No, but there may be a football field in the bathroom cupboard. *Smirk*

6. You meet an Alien who is about to kill you. Do you offer him a Jelly Baby or run?
Run. That seems to be the Doctor's advice too.

7. If your best friend faked his death to save your life, then popped up a year later to inform you he was still alive, would you faint or punch him?
I have never fainted in my life. I sort of want to--just to see what if feels like. But I think it's more likely that I'd punch him rather than faint. I'd punch him and then brake down into a sobbing mess.

8. Buttered popcorn or plain?
"Butter, Chuffy!" (Brownie points if you can name that quote!)

9. Have you ever had a flip phone in your position and wished to yell, "Beam me up, Scotty!" into it?
Not a flip phone. My Daddy actually owns one of the communicators. It was a Christmas Pressy. But I don't think I've ever yelled that into it. Shocking, isn't it. *Note to self; Play with communicator.*

10. What is your favouritest book?
This question is totally impossible. But right now I'm pretty infatuated with the whole Attolia series. I don't have a whole lot of fictional crushes. But I have added Gen to my little list.

11. It is raining, do you go for a walk in it or sit by the fire with hot chocolate and a good book?
If it's a winter-y, cold rain, hot chocolate and good book all the way. But if it's a warm rain, I'll probably take a walk in it.

My Questions.
Here's the thing. Quite a few of my sisters have blogs and since we have very similar taste in pretty much everything, the blogs that I follow, they follow. And as such, I have no one left to nominate. *Shrugs* 
But, but, but! If you'd like to do the tag please do! I'm going to ask some questions and I'd love to hear some of your guy's answers. So if you decided to grab this tag, let me know and I can see what you have to say. Please. :) 

1.) Would you rather have a talking cat or be able to speak dog?

2.) Are you a sucker for period drama or action/adventure films? 

3.) Do you like to wear makeup?

4.) Do you prefer tall guys or short guys?

5.) Have you ever eaten shwarma?

6.) Would you rather be a spy during WWII or the American Revolution?

7.) Are you the sort of person that prefers long hikes up in the mountains, or a dress-up tea party with some of your friends?

8.) If you had to choose one person from a TV show to go on a date with, who would it be? It HAS to be a TV show character and yes, you HAVE to pretend you'd get the chance to go on a date. *Smirk*

9.) Would you rather live in the city or out in the country?

10.) Would you rather sing in front of a large audience, or give a speech?

11.) Would you rather take a dance class or learn how to fence?

And there we have it. Thanks again, Jack. That was a super fun tag. 

If any of you decide to do the tag, please leave me a link in to comment section so I can read it. Or, if you just don't have a blog, you can answer the questions in the comment section. Whatever you want to do! Just have fun with it, k? 

God Bless!


  1. Yes, Jamie Bell would make a freaking awesome Eugenides. I LOVE him. So much! (Both Jamie and Eugenides. :)

    I believe that "Butter, Chuffy!" was actually from the book version of... oh crikey, which Jeeves and Wooster was that? Thank You, Jeeves? I think it was that one, anyhoozle.

  2. That scene where Sid cannot find a comfortable position to sleep in, but rolls all over the place for minutes on end... that is you too. And some of those corny one-liners that he tosses off - "oh look.... PINECONE!" Sorry :-D

  3. Brownie points ofr Kit! I'm pretty sure it's Thank You Jeeves. ;)
    Please remember, Eugenides is MINE. lol. Well...maybe yes. I don't want to be like Sid. I am in denial. :D

  4. I love that music video! All of her clothes are so cute.... and so is her date. :P I really feel like going on a date now. Now, to find a Mr. Thornton.....

  5. Amy

    I just want you to know that what I said about your blog was true, and I think people should pay more attention to it. IT IS AWESOME. REALLY REALLY Everything I told you was true. I'm sorry if I upset you in anyway it certaintly wasn't my intent. I DO love Doctor Who and Merlin and I HAVE watched Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The Ponds ARE my favorite companions and I Nine is REALLY my favorite Doctor.

    I guess I thought I would be okay, but it seems I still have a long way to go. again, I'm sorry.

    Cheers and God Bless!


  6. Hey, Elizabeth!
    I like a lot of Taylor Swift's music videos. Have you ever watched her "Ours" music video? LOVE IT! It makes me cry at the end every time. I think she's really cute.
    Date with a Mr. Thorton? How cool would that be? how come all the 'Mr. Thortons' are so scarce? *Sigh*

    Hello, Freya.
    Not to worry, I understand completely and wasn't upset at all. :D I'm really glad you like my blog and I hope you can come and visit it sometime again.
    Anyway, thanks for letting me know and I hope things go well for you.
    Cheers and God bless you too!
