Inspirational Blog Award

The kind and soothing blogger WilyBCool gave me this rather nifty award...

...which includes butterflies and some questions! I am not sure I deserve the butterflies (although they are pretty!), but I'll do my best to come up with answers. So.

1.  What makes you laugh, smile or giggle?

Um...Muppets. Tickling my baby with my head. The voice of Edna Mode on The Incredibles. My three four-year-old's jokes. Dory talking to baby jellyfish in Finding Nemo. Calvin and Hobbes. Terry Pratchett. Foxtrot. My husband's puns. And lots of other stuff, too.

2.  What are your dreams for the future?

Teach my boys so they can be happy. Travel with my husband. Read books. Publish books. Meet other awesome writers. Eat sushi. Read more books in a warm bath. Feel happy myself.

3.  If you were going on a cruise where would it be and why?

I want to go to England and Ireland and Scotland because I've studied so many authors from there, and because I've heard the weather over there will make the Seattlelite in me feel at home. Also, maybe I could meet Sherlock. Or Doctor Who.

The United Kingdom isn't exactly a cruise place, though, is it? So maybe I'll say Micronesia. Because my husband lived there for a while, and I've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive.

4.  Who would you spend your vacation with and why?

My husband. And my boys (if they're older). Because they are awesome and make me laugh (see question 1).

5.  If given a life, what life would you chose and why?  Past or future?

If I could be someone else, you mean? I'm happy being me. But if it were a kind of temporary thing, like a chance to download someone's life experiences, I'd go for Mary Cassat. Or William Shakespeare. Or maybe Queen Elizabeth. There's so many intriguing choices! So I'm going to cheat and say I'd choose some future psychic who could see all past lives and reveal them in a healthy, educational, and compassionate way. Whew! Did I pass?

And if you want to see the blogs I'm reading, you should check out my sidebar. I totally stalk each one of these poor bloggers every time their blog updates, and I am lucky I have so many interesting people to read about!


  1. Kids always make me laugh and giggle. Congrats on the award you deserve it.

  2. I felt that you definitely deserved it! Great answers!!! ;D

  3. Congratulations! Hope you get to do the cruise to the British Isles. You're really enjoy visiting those countries.

  4. Thanks, Josh and Wily! And I hope so, too, Alex. I hope so, too. :)

  5. How fun! Love the questions. And if you go to meet Doctor Who, I'll tag along (but I like the older Doctors!).

  6. Heather: Doctor number four is pretty awesome, from the little I've seen. You're invited! And you can teach me about the old doctors along the way. :)

  7. Doctor number four, huh...maybe I can get it from Netflix or Hulu? Yes, my fave is the curly-haired dr. w/the long scarf...

  8. HA! I just realized the fourth Dr. is the one I know best--Tom Baker, right? I used to love those episodes!

  9. He's awesome, and for some reason he kind of reminds me of Neil Gaiman--not in personality, though. Maybe it's the hair. :)
