Feeling the Liebster Love

Last week, the very cute Kim over at Living on a Latte and a Prayer bestowed upon me the Liebster Award, which is a kick-ass award for bloggers with under 200 followers. 

YAY!! I love awards!!

Anyhoo, the deal is that I'm supposed to list 11 facts about myself and then answer 11 questions from the awarder. Now, I've done a few random fact posts and frankly, I don't think I'm interesting enough to do another. They can be found herehere and here.

Onto Kim's questions!

1. Do you have any pets? If so, tell me about them. If not, what would your ideal pet be?

Do I have pets? HECK YES I have pets! Two of the cutest perma-puppies you’ve ever seen. Pickle is a Yorkie, although he’s more of a Porkie of late, and Pepi is a Japanese Chin. Put them together and they’re almost a cat.

Pickle's on the left, staring at his most prized possession (his green ball) while Pepi's gnawing on a hilariously disproportionate monkey.

2. What's your favorite holiday and why?

Totally Christmas. Partly because I love Santa but also because my birthday’s on the 23rd, which basically means that it’s a three-day party! Also, I really like wrapping presents. Seriously. I love it. When I worked in retail, it was my favourite part of my job. And let me tell you, the other staff were MORE than happy to just let me sit at a table and do it all. Truth be told, I really miss having access to all of the ribbon. The good stuff—ribbon made from cloth. *sighs wistfully*

3. If you could meet one famous person (living or dead) who would it be and what would be the first thing you asked them?

Channing Tatum

And I’d ask him to take off his shirt.

Haha, I kid, I kid.

It’d really be Ryan Gosling.

And I’d ask him to take off his shirt.

4. Is there one food that you refuse to eat/absolutely hate?

Since my birthday last year, I haven’t eaten fast food with the exception of one burger from Wendy’s because we were driving to Quebec and it was the only option available. It was a conscious decision because I was eating WAY TOO MANY cheeseburgers and I’m proud of myself for taking a stand for my health. Not that I haven’t eaten any cheeseburgers, mind you, but they’ve been cooked on our BBQ, so that’s okay.

And in terms of food that I absolutely hate? That’d be a two-way tie between onions and mushrooms. Bleck.

5. Mac or PC?

Mac, Mac, a thousand times….Mac.

6. Favorite guilty pleasure song?

Hmm…I don’t really have one of these. I’ll pretty much sing my face off to anything. OH WAIT! I really like the Veggie Tales’ version of Feliz Navidad, even though it’s slightly psychotic with the high-pitched voices. And speaking of high-pitched voices, I also like Chipmunk Christmas songs.

7. What accomplishment/achievement of yours are you most proud of?

Since getting sick, I’ve written four full-length novels and once, I ran for a really long time (pre-sickness, obviously).

8. Do you read your horoscope? Do you think the description of your sign fits you?

I’m on the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn and it makes sense most of the time. I’m not a huge believer BUT I do know that I dated many an Aries before The Remix and NONE of those relationships worked out (obviously. You know, cause I’m married to The Remix).

9. Have you ever gotten into trouble (little or big) with the law?

Nope! I lived by my Mother’s wise words on that one:

If you’re going to do something dumb, be smart enough to not get caught.

Yup, she’s pretty much a genius.

10. What's the one book you would recommend that everyone read?

My all-time favourite women’s fiction is Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes and more recently, Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. Hot damn, that was a good read! I even reviewed it, so click here if you’re interested.

11. I'm stealing this one from Jessica because I liked it...what's your favorite quote? 

Well-behaved women seldom make history. -- Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

You have enemies? Good. That means that you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. – Winston Churchill

And who shall I pass this award onto? 

Emma from BubblyMuppet

Angela from every. day. matters.

Bailie from The Hemborg Wife

Here are your questions, girls!

1. Are you superstitious, moderately-stituous or non-stituious?

2. If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?

3. What book or movie would you want to be in? You can be an existing character or just insert yourself.

4. The last time you laughed so hard that you cried was...

5. The Dentist: No Big Deal or The Worst Thing Ever?

6. What do you love most about yourself? (No, you don't get to flip this around and get negative.)

7. If you could do anything for work--anything at all, what would you do?

8. Who do you think would win in a cage match: The Easter Bunny or The Tooth Fairy? Defend. 

9. When was the last time you treated yourself? What did you do?

10. Bubble Baths: Relaxing or Bathing In Your Own Filth?

11. How much wood would a Woodchuck chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood? (Have fun with that one...haha!)

Thanks SO MUCH, Kim!! That was fun!


  1. Love your answers! I lol'ed during class about your guilty pleasure songs - I LOVE those too! (And seriously...I snorted a bit and people looked at me...oops...) And I'm (slowly) reading Gone Girl right now...I can't wait until this semester is done and I get more time to read fun books again. Thanks for playing along!

  2. Woot Woot! I am so excited and think I will have it up for Sunday!!!

  3. Ok I lied about Sunday but it is up now!


Whattaya got to say about that? *waits*
