...and I'm positively delighted! Thanks ever so much, Naomi, for tagging me!
First off, I guess I'd better mention the rules. Because, you know, these tags have rules and we must always mention them whether we follow them or not. *wink*
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
2. Put the award logo on your blog.
3. Answer the ten questions sent to you.
4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Nominate ten other bloggers
There you are. Now you can all keep a close look out and see which rules I follow and which rules I don't. Haha! Though I'm guessing you already have a pretty good idea which ones I'm going to skip. (Why, yes, of course it will be the last two. How clever of you.) Seriously though, I think I won't nominate anyone today, or come up with any new questions, because I did this tag already and I don't want it to get too repetitive for people.
Alright. Let's begin.
1. Describe your eyes.
(Was that a question, or a command? :) No, it's okay. I will obey.) Brown.
(By the way, I do not look like this girl. I just included her because she has brown eyes. What's wrong with that?)
...Haha. Okay, I know, that was a pretty lame description. Let me try again. My eyes look like...eyes. (Obviously.) They're brown--sorry I think I said that already. They're rather large (or so I assume as my mom used to tease me whenever I'd open them extremely wide that I'd better not let them get any larger or they'd pop out of my head). They have permanent dark circles under them (which I hope are not too awfully noticeable) on account of my not getting enough sleep. And they have very distinct little crinkles along the sides when I smile. (Did I do alright?)
(Oh, and you don't think I used too many parenthesis, do you? Because, really, I don't like to overdo things. (Heehee.))
2. What's the last thing you bought? (And food doesn't count.)
An LP record of one of my all time favorite singers, Andrew Culverwell. He is a Christian artist who wrote music mostly during the 70's and 80's. And his music is SO good...and I mean SOOOO good. I am currently collecting all of his old albums and hoping to get a record player some day so that I can listen to them--you know, because when you buy music you usually want to listen to it.
3. Do you keep a diary? (And do you let people read it, or is it filled with dark secrets?)
I used to keep a diary, but I was never very good at it. I wrote a few things that would be classified as secret, but mostly I wouldn't wish anyone to read it simply because the writing is so painfully bad. I do like to share some of my earliest journal entries with my siblings, though, because it's SO much fun to laugh over my atrocious spelling errors. (For example: millck [milk], orenj jous [orange juice], holde hanes [hold hands], shoosh [shoes]...I'm not kidding. It was that bad.)
4. If you could choose, have pink hair for a week, or have one encounter with Blandois from 'Little Dorrit' in the night on a lonely road? (For those of you who haven't read or seen Little Dorrit, Blandois is this horrible character who turns blood into ice. (not literally.))
Okay, well I really liked Olivia's answer over at Meanwhile in Rivendell, but of course I can't steal it, so I'm going to have to go with my original answer. As Blandois is NOT the kind of person one would like to meet on a lonely road...
(What makes you think I would ever choose to meet up with such an odious man? You must be joking!)
...I'm afraid I'm going to have to suffer through having pink hair for a week. Ugh. BUT WAIT! First, I'm going to find a very beautiful, and stylish, hat that will completely cover my hair. Because I simply will not be seen in public with my hair in such a state. (Or maybe I will just stay quietly at home until my hair turns brown again. That's also an option.)5. What do you imagine I look like? (I'm curious.)
This is a rather tough one, as I don't have a very distinct mental image of you. I guess I'd have to say that I imagine you as a girl with dark, wavy hair and a face that is covered with a large red box which reads, "20 Facts about Me." Haha. However, if I let my imagination go somewhat further, I'd say--in my mind--you have a very lively sort of face, with a lot of expression, and a huge infectious grin. I imagine you to be short rather than tall, and very energetic and fond of skipping about the house. Do I come close in any particulars?
6. Did you ever believe in Santa Claus?
Never! And I would have been totally affronted had anyone suspected me of such a thing. I was far too clever! Haha!
7. When do you allow yourself to start listening to Christmas songs?
I don't really allow or disallow. I just listen to it whenever I feel like it. Which really isn't that often except around Christmas...though I do play Christmas carols on the piano at random times throughout the year. Just because.
8. Do you have a pair of pink shoes? (Because I think I want them.)
Oh, I used to. They were light pink sandals which I wore for my brother's wedding, but I don't have them anymore. (Sorry, Naomi.)
9. When you say the word 'brother' in a British accent, do you end up saying 'brotha' or 'brother'? (Because often when people try out British accents, they make the mistake of doing the latter.)
I'm not sure I've said brother in a British accent all that much...but I think I would tend to say 'brotha'. Anyway, I hope I would, as that is obviously the correct way. And I do so like to be correct about things.
10. Which literary character can you mimic the best?
Ach. I don't know. I can't think of any. When I was younger I used to be pretty famous for my impersonation of Mrs. Gummidge from BBC's David Copperfield (1999). However, I'm not sure if that was because I was actually good at mimicking her, or if my fame simply arose from that fact that it was totally hilarious to see a nine-year-old girl wailing, "I'm a lone lorn creature, Danel, and everything goes contrary with me! I make the house un-CUMFtable. Oh, I DO!" (Boo hoo!) :)
Well, that's it. That's the tag. I followed all the rules...except the ones I didn't...and now I really must be off!
Thanks again, Naomi! These questions were so much fun to answer!
So long, everyone!
