Sunshine Blogger Award 2.0

I have once again been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award!  Thank you to An Irrelevant Girl for the nomination and the questions.  She is a poet whom I’ve been following for a few years.

Rules for the nomination:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their blog posts.
  • List the rules and display a Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or your blog site.
  1. Do you remember any recent dreams?

No, but that is a boring answer, so I will tell you that I remember many dreams that I’ve had over the years, including two different ones where I died and then woke up.  I have also had several dreams featuring my dad since he died last year, which I found very comforting.

2. What are you looking forward to, whether it’s short-term or long-term, close or far away?

I am looking forward to the birth of my second Little Jedi in the fall.  While this is maybe not the time I would have chosen to have another kid, what with a global pandemic and all, I am hopeful about the future of our family as we grow and change.  Though you may be seeing a bit less of me here on this blog in the coming year!

3. What’s your favourite word?

Oh, dear, I don’t know.  I enjoy many words like “superfluous” and “perspicacity.”  My toddler also tells me that “thermostat” is a funny word.

4. Is there anything about you that surprises people?

Possibly that I was in a sorority during university.  I expect that I don’t come across as a typical sorority girl.

5. If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you would buy?

Probably something supremely boring, like paying off my house.

6. What’s one thing you could spend a whole night talking about?

Star Wars!  Also fantasy novels, and probably biological research.

7. What’s something that is nostalgic to you? (eg. an item, place, song etc.)

Things related to Florida, where I grew up, like palm trees, moss in oak trees, the beach, Disney, and horribly oppressive humidity.

8. Are you more of a lone wolf or a pack wolf?

Lone wolf!  I am an introvert.

9. What’s your favourite sound?

Silence from my toddler’s room after bedtime.

But seriously, music of many kinds is my favorite thing to listen to.  I almost always have music on the background when I am at work or writing.  When I lived by myself I often put on headphones with music to fall asleep.

10. What’s your favourite thing about yourself?

Physically, my red hair.  Personality-wise, my ability to be both logical and empathetic.

11. What’s something you haven’t done in a while but would like to do again?

Ohhh so many things.  I have to keep reminding myself that when my kids are older I will have some time to myself again.  It has been several months since I played the flute, and several years since I played tennis.  I also haven’t done any fiction writing since November, I think, so I am hoping to do Camp NaNo this month to finish up the fanfic I was writing.  In all my copious spare time.

I typically don’t do nominations for awards anymore because I simply don’t have the time, but feel free to answer these same questions yourself if you like!  Consider yourself nominated ~_^

    I, too, would spend lottery winnings on something boring and practical! And how did I guess you could spend all night talking about Star Wars? 😉

    Also, congratulations on your new little one! I guess it won’t be long now!

    Yes, congratulations Mei-Mei (and Mister Mei-Mei!) I recently sensed and posted about a “Dyad” in the Force and I was right…a second Padawan. I told you I was strong on the Force didn’t I 😄
    Seriously though big congratulations on both this recognition and your big news. Stay safe.

    I’m the weirdo that remembers every dream. I had a really cool one 2 nights ago! I was an ice queen like Elsa, and there was time travel, and rescuing my dad who got sucked into time travel, and enemies chasing us…that was unusual that it was THAT cool of a dream. Usually they’re weird and just like, “Wtf?”

    Speaking of fantasy novels, have you read the Name of the Wind by Rothfuss? Rumor has it that the 3rd book is out this summer and I’m really excited.

      Ha, I had a weird dream last night, but as always I remembered it right when I woke up but then couldn’t recall it later in the day. Your dream sounds awesome!

      I haven’t read Name of the Wind yet, partly because I was waiting for the series to finish haha. But I have heard so many good things about it, I know I will get to it eventually.

        Oh I wouldn’t have started it had I known it wasn’t all out. For some reason, I thought the whole series was written and I was so annoyed to find out it wasn’t

    Nice to know you.

    I wish I’ll have a dream of my father, too. He just passed away without having seen him since 2012.

    Congratulations for the second one. I found that having two is just as easy and difficult as having only one. The first one already broke you from your solitary habits and clued you in about having a baby and being a mom. 😆 I hope that was comforting.

    You and my family will click with Star Wars. I am always perplexed at how eagerly they discuss and pick on every star war detail.
