Life is Good Award

I just got a heads up from Ivan of Ivan Bookworm that he is giving me the Life is Good Award!  Yay‼

UPDATE:  Cynthia at Wytch's Mirror is also passing this award onto me.  Isn't it wonderful?  Thank you, Cynthia!

Here's the picture trophy :D

I am so thrilled and so is ARGH and we'd love to say:

 So apparently, we also have do the following tasks for this award:

1. First, thank and link back to the person that gave the award.
2. Answer the 10 survey questions
3. Pass the award along to other bloggers whom you think are fantastic.
4. Contact the bloggers you have chosen to let them know about the award.

10 survey questions:

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this?   If you are not anonymous, do you wish that you had started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?

A:  Not exactly anonymous because sometimes I like to share something about myself that's still sort of related to what this blog is all about because that makes things interesting.  I mean, if I were a reader of this blog, I would definitely get bored just reading book reviews and memes but not really being able to connect with the person behind those stuff.  But I do not like to share too much of myself for obvious reasons, and because I don't really think that's necessary.  This is not a personal blog, anyway.

2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.

A:  I've got a lot of that!  I am a very stubborn person, and headstrong too.  Once I've made up my mind about something, it's very difficult to change my mind.  But one incident:  I was in high school and we were having our school fair.  My class was assigned to work on the Horror House and I was one of the 'ghosts.'  During break, I really needed to go get something to eat but I did not want to take off my makeup because it was difficult to put on, my classmates were already insisting that I change costumes first before going and that they'd help me with changing later on but I wouldn't listen.  I was too concerned with how much effort would be put into getting into my costume again.  So off I went to the cafeteria.  On the way there, I had to go down three sets of stairs and my dress was quite long, I kept tripping on my skirts and on the last step, I tripped again and fell face first on the floor.  So much for my stubbornness, not only do I have to re-do my makeup, I had to nurse a black eye for days after that.

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?

A:  Mirrors break when I look at them.  Just kidding :p  I see someone with sharp eyes, the kind that people know cannot be fooled, I see a pair of lips that spew words dripping with dry wit and sarcasm, and I see a face that looks back at me and tells me I have to do something.  What that something is, I haven't really figured out yet.

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?

A:  Watermelon shake!  But my really favorite cold drink is cold, icy water.

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?

A:  Read, eat, read, sleep.

6. Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?

A:  Put up my own bookstore (more on that next time), have kids that I would dress up like me, even if I have a boy, and of course, travel the world!

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?

A:  I was the class clown and class achiever - not really overachiever, no, I could not get past the ceiling grades back then and I did not really want to because I thought I would need a lot of brain cells when I get out of school.  Good foresight, I had. 

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?

A:  When I had to kiss and hug my father goodbye when he died :-(

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?

A:  Depends on my mood and the topic.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?

A:  Read AND talk on the phone!  Who said you could only do just one?  But really, I'd rather read.  Talking on the phone can wait, I wouldn't have that much to say anyway.
So that wraps up the survey.  The following are the people ARGH and I would like to pass this award to, and we hope they'd love it as much as we did:

  4. I loved reading your answers. It's nice to get to know you more.

    And thank you so much for the award! Just so you know, I probably won't be officially accepting it (just like I haven't for any other award I've received) because I just don't have the time, but I do really appreciate that you thought of me!


I just have to tell you, ARGH feeds on awesomeness, so if you can, drop him some awesome here, and I promise to give some awesome back :D

Right now, because of my really busy schedule, I'm cutting back on receiving awards. So until further notice, me and ARGH would not be accepting awards. But thank you for thinking of us, we really appreciate it!
