It’s An Honor Just To Be Nominated…

I’d like to thank the Academy.. Oh, sorry. WRONG Awards ceremony.

I’d like to thank Maxine (@CaffeineChapter), blogger of Between the Lines, for naming me among her nominees for a Liebster Award.


So it’s a way to introduce folks to blogs that have less than 200 followers and for bloggers to get to know each other a bit. I agree with Maxine that it’s a great idea,

Here are the requirements:

 • I have to list 11 random facts about me, and answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated me.
I am to nominate 11 other people, and come up with 11 new questions.  I can’t nominate the person who nominated me (for obvious reasons.)
• I paste the award picture on my blog.
So, to quote Joe Friday, here are “Just the facts, Ma’am.”
  1. I have 3 cats – Franklin, adopted from our vet’s office and Sam & Frodo, two sisters my cousin rescued from a box behind a dumpster (we didn’t know they were both girls until they were a few months old. by that time, Frodo had learned her name & actually responded to it, so I couldn’t change it).
  2. When I was in 2nd grade, I got in trouble for filling in my art class sketchpad with almost nothing but drawings of Gigantor.
  3. I saw Ivan Reitman’s GHOSTBUSTERS (1984) 16 times in it’s original theatrical run.
  4. I own a NM copy of Avengers #4 – the return of Captain America.
  5. I’m allergic to shellfish.
  6. I’ve seen Stanley Donen & Gene Kelly’s SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN (1952) 135 times.
  7. I can cook a mean meatloaf!
  8. I was once blessed by Rick Moranis.
  9. I’m the proud owner if an Ove Glove! It works GREAT!!
  10. I received a standing ovation for my performance of ‘Confrontation’ from the musical JEKYLL & HYDE, in a convention cabaret.
  11. My first car was a ’70s mint green Dodge Dart.


Here are my answers to Maxine’s questions:
1. Do you believe in a God?
2. What frightens you?
Spiders. HATE ‘EM!
3. Are you a romantic?
Hopelessly so.
4. Do you love your pet more than your partner ? (be honest!)
I’m currently single, so yes.
5. What is your all time favourite Song?
A tie between Young & Beautiful,  from Jailhouse Rock & Got a Lot of Livin’ To Do,  from Loving You.
6. Do you have a claim to fame and if so what it it?
The aforementioned standing ovation. It’s the ONLY standing O in the 25+ years the con had the cabaret.
7. Are you a morning or a night person?
Night. I am… ‘acquainted’ with the night.
8. How do you like your eggs?
9. What is your favourite word?
Crap (I use it a LOT!)
10. What are you reading now?
I’m in the middle of my annual reading of Lord of the Rings.

11. Rate your sense of humour ie evil, dry, witty, childish……

I’d say wickedly warped with hints of occasional dry childishness.
Here are the Blogs I’m tagging, in no particular order (Please don’t feel obligated to do this and if it bothers you, I apologize in advance) (and if you have MORE than 200 followers, I also apologize. some of you folks don’t have follower counts on your pages -hint hint).
And now, my 11 obligatory questions for my tags:
  1. What’s your favorite genre of movie?
  2. What’s the most recent B/W movie you’ve seen?
  3. Do you have a favorite cartoon character?
  4. If you could summon one dead historical/famous figure, who would you call on?
  5. Mac or PC?
  6. What film have you seen the most times, and do you know how many times you saw it?
  7. Favorite sports team?
  8. Favorite board game?
  9. Ever sang karaoke in public?
  10. Who would portray you best in the story of your life? (living or dead actor/actress)
  11. What TV theme song can you NEVER get out of your head?


Thanks very much for reading & (hopefully) participating. And of course, if you’re NOT among the listed sites, by all means, stop on by there!
