The Liebster Award…questions and answers

Thanks to Sue Lyndon for nominating me for The Liebster Award – I appreciate it!

Here are the rules:

  • When one receives the award, one posts 11 random facts about oneself and answers the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  • Pass the award onto 11 other blogs (while making sure one notifies the blogger that one nominated them!)
  • One writes up 11 NEW questions directed towards YOUR nominees.
  • One is not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated one’s own blog!
  • One pastes the award picture into one’s blog. (You can google the image, there are plenty of them!)

Here are Sue’s questions for me and my answers:

  1. What is your favorite song? Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve
  2. What was the last thing you ate? Breakfast – Kashi cereal (with organic milk) and OJ
  3. Do you prefer to read from a Kindle/Nook/etc. 0r a paper copy? My Kindle – I can make the font bigger so I don’t have to wear my glasses to lay in bed and read!
  4. List your five favorite movies? This is actually tough for me. I’ve been reading so much of late that I haven’t been watching TV or movies. So five movies I’ve been known to watch over and over: National Treasure, Twilight, The Saint (with Val Kilmer), Twister, and The Bourne Identity (have you noticed the action-adventure theme and the fact most of the movies are older??)
  5. What writing project are you working on now? A paranormal romance novella. The working title is My Handsome Vampire.
  6. Are you allergic to anything? I have a fickle nose – certain dogs and cats, flowers, etc. I’ve never had allergy tests, but I probably should.
  7. Do you have any real life stories that start with, “This one time at band camp…” I don’t recall any stories, but I confess that I did participate in band camp. I remember hating getting up early before the start of school, very warm days, and that’s about it.
  8. How do you handle telemarketers? Do you hang up, politely say “no thanks,” or curse them to the depths of hell? None of the above. I don’t answer my phone if I don’t recognize the number.
  9. When was the last time you wrote someone  a letter by hand and snail mailed it? It was probably a birthday card to my great-aunt with a hand written note last year. Sad, isn’t it?
  10. Besides writing, do you have any other artsy talents? I play the piano and try to sing!
  11. What’s your favorite kind of candy? Dark chocolate

Eleven Random Facts about Denise:

  1. I’m a vegetarian.
  2. I’m a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
  3. I really miss being able to run. I suffered a knee injury at work, which has never healed. It put an end to my half-marathon days.
  4. Three places I’d love to visit: Italy – Tuscany in particular, the base camp of Mount Everest, and Scotland (thanks to Skyfall for that one!)
  5. I’d really like to visit Savannah and St. Augustine this summer.
  6. I’ve considered buying an RV. I enjoy the outdoors, but my back won’t allow me to sleep on the ground in a tent.
  7. I’m scared to death of spiders but could care less about snakes or mice.
  8. I have a fish. His name is Rupert.
  9. I can sing in Latin – never thought I’d be able to say that!
  10. I need a cup of coffee to start my day (I’m definitely not a morning person).
  11. I can’t stand doing dishes; I’d rather iron!
