(Thanks to Cupcakes&Machetes for nominating me. Nothing I say below reflects on her in ANY way.)
- Provide the link to the creator’s original award post. (very important: see why in step 5)
- Answer the questions provided.
- Create 7 unique questions.
- Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator, nor the blogger that nominated you, can be nominated.
- At the end of 2029, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2029 Outstanding Blogger Award! And everyone else can wallow in being a total loser.
Gosh, The Bookstooge is just so, like, you know, totally honored?!? * swoon * When The Bookstooge was a little boy in elementary school and everybody else was saying they wanted to be nurses, or firemen or astronauts, The Bookstooge wanted to be an Outstanding Blogger. Never mind that the internet as we know it didn’t exist and blogs sure as shooting didn’t exist, The Bookstooge knew what he wanted and I had a Dream!
So today is the proudest day of The Bookstooge’s life. My Dream realized and my very life justified. Some random stranger made up a popularity contest and by mere chance The Bookstooge was selected. * cries into hankee * The Bookstooge would like to thank nobody but myself, as the Academy has done squat all for me and my dream.
Second, those “Rules”. What is with bloggers acting like little Castro’s every time they vomit up another meme/tag/award? You are nobody and nobody cares about you, or your flipping rules and adding “important” reminds me of a 3 year old saying “and this is vewy importnt!” Stop trying to micromanage how I do posts on my own blog. Needless to say, I am ignoring Das Rulez. I mean, The Bookstooge is doing all of that, not me.
With all the crankiness and vitriol now out of my system, I can actually begin this post. Aye yi yi!
Would you rather travel to the deep sea or outer space?
Outer space. My couch is not designed for underwater excursions.
Are you artistic?
100%!!!! You should have seen the stick figure drawings I did in Bibleschool. Van Gogh would have cut off his other ear in pure jealously if he was still alive.
How many books did you read last year?
156. I could have easily read at least 10x that amount, but Certain Movie Blogs I follow are always tempting me down the path of movieness. Shame, shame, shame!
If you could live any one historical figures life, which would you choose?
Which? Are people now things? Is someone’s life more important than the person themselves? WHO I would choose is George Washington. Then, because Washington was a Free Mason (and we know they hold all the secrets of everything), I would time travel to now and lead a Second American Revolution. I’d have my portrait painted of me standing on a tank that was crossing the Delaware. Snazzy, eh?
Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter?
Definitely Fall. I like the air to be cool enough that I need a light jacket to keep my body heat in but not cold enough to need a hat.
Which character in a book would you most like to be?
Captain Wentworth from Persuasion maybe? While I enjoy reading ABOUT the characters in my SFF books, I would not want to experience what they deal with. Wentworth at least, I think I could deal with the situations Austen puts him in.
Since I have done this, I am now an Outstanding Blogger. Shower me with adulation and gifts (preferably cash) and I might deign to notice your pitiful existence!
