Patrick from Beyond Imagination has been kind enough to nominate SadieForsythe.com for a Sunshine Award. I’ve run an emotional gamut in response to it. I was initially thrilled simply to have been thought of, and then I wondered if this wasn’t just the blogging equivalent of a high-school chain letter, and then I decided I simply don’t care–Yeah, I got an award! While I get the distinct honor of passing it on to other blogs that bring momentary rays of sunshine into my virtual life, for the moment it is all mine.
Here are the rules…
1. Include the award logo in your post & on your blog.
2. Answer 10 questions about yourself – You can make up your own or you can use mine.
3. Nominate 5 – 10 other wonderful bloggers.
4. Let the other nominees know they are nominated and include links to their blog.
5. Link the person who nominated you.
So, here are my nominations:
Some of them will be happier than others to receive such a chipper award, but they bring joy to me so…
1. Who is your favorite author ever?
This is an encredably hard question to answer. If asked what my favorite book is I would answer Dune, by Frank Herbert. But the question isn’t what is your favorite book. It is who is your favorite author; and the answer to that question changes from time to time. Right now I think I would have to say Anne Rice simply because she has written so many books that I have enjoyed.
2. What is your happy food?
Steamed artichokes with drawn butter. Oh god, I think I’m drooling just thinking about it.
3. Hardback or Paperback?
It depends – if it is a book I want to save and cherish, then a hardback. But if it is just a bit of fluff that I’m reading for the ephemeral joy of it, then I like a paperback that I can thrown in a smallish bag and drag about with me.
4. If you could visit one new country what would it be.
Japan – I’m enamored with the culture, architecture, and atmosphere.
5. What is your favorite movie?
I don’t have many favorite movies. I would usually prefer a book or my computer. But I would put Amalie right at the top of he list.
6. Manga or Anime?
Manga – it’s a little shot of happiness.
7. What is your favorite color?
I have always been partial to dark heather grey. I know, I know it may not technically be a color, but still it is my favorite.
8. What is your dream vacation?
Somewhere lush, leafy, and green like a lake or forest cabin. If I could just be left alone with the scenery, a stack of good books and a fast internet connection I would be in heaven.
9. Tea or coffee?
Ooh that’s a tough one. If I am at home it is always tea. But if I am out and about I generally want a latte at about 3:00pm.
10. What did you buy this week?
Other than groceries, nothing
