Liebster Award!

Hi everyone,

So Catherine from basedonthebook.blogspot.com, was kind enough to bestow upon me the Liebster Award (check out her blog; I just discovered it today and it is really addictive).  People who read my other blogs might recognize this award, as I won it for my movie blog.  It always great to hear that my blogs are interesting and entertaining people.  I would love to return the favor, so if any of you have blogs that you want me to take a look it, stop by the comments section and give me your URL.
First, I have to list eleven interesting facts about myself.  It has been while, but I will try not to repeat any from my movie blog post.

1. My pet peeves include women who refer to themselves as "bitches", cutesy names for genitalia, and people who tell you something really private when you first meet them.
2. I love the Nancy Drew computer games by Her Interactive.
3. I write a long email to my sister every night before I go to bed which recaps my day and is mostly aimed at making her laugh.
4. I make amazing peanut butter cookies but they are the only thing I can cook.
5. I love African American romantic comedies and horror films.
6. I love to sing but the last time I sang in front of someone was in the eighth grade and it was the worst.
7. Incidentally, my friend told me the most common thing I say is "_____ is the worst."
8. The most desirable trait I am looking for in a man is the ability to make me laugh.  Unfortunately, very few can do it.
9. My favorite drink is Sex on the Beach.
10. Right now I can't stop listening to the song "Love Like Mine" and I don't even watch Nashville.
11. I love wearing crazy lipstick colors and am usually wearing plum.

Okay, next up is a set of questions that were created by Caroline:
1. If you could marry any fictional character, who would you pick?
Oh this one is hard because the characters I am most attracted to aren't exactly marriage material. I am going to say Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer because he is hot and hilarious.
2. Jeans or leggings?
3. What was your favourite childhood T.V show?
Probably Spongebob Squarepants.
4. What is your go-to Karaoke song?
I have never actually sang karaoke, mostly because that is an introvert's worst nightmare.  I would probably sing "Your Song" or "Sweet Caroline" (I am picking generic ones because I assume they would be options at this fictional Karaoke bar I have created in my mind).
5. If you were on mastermind, what would be your specialist subject?
I would probably like to study supernatural phenomena and study people who claim to be "psychic" and haunted places.
6. What's your favourite season of the year?
Definitely spring.  But will it ever come?
7. If you could live in any historical era, (other than this one) which one would you choose?
The idea of being a woman in any other era is frightening.  I have read a lot of books that take place in 1750s and wouldn't mind visiting but I would never want to stay there.
8. Frodo, Sam, Merry or Pippin?
Sam!  He is the real hero of the trilogy!
9. Which Disney character are you most like?
Probably Anna from Frozen.  I am really close to my sister and am rather easily taken in when a guy pays attention to me.
10. What is the most random situation that you've ever found yourself in?
This is a really hard question!  I once got stuck on a cable car with my sister on the way up to Mount Blanc and everyone on the ground was just like staring at our clear pod and pointing.
11. What would be your last meal on death row?
That is dark.  Probably this pasta salad my sister makes and cheesesticks.  I am obsessed with cheesesticks.

Now time for the questions that my nominees must answer:
1. Debate that you get into most often?
2. What Hogwarts house would you be in?
3. Longest you have ever gone being single?
4. Book you reread the most often?
5. Trait that a significant other must possess?
6. Weirdest thing you have ever heard at a party?
7. Your view on a news story of your choice?
8. Coolest insult/comeback that you have ever come up with?
9. Favorite Shakespearean villain?
10. Most frequently visited website (the correct answer is my blog by the way)?
11. Song that you feel most applies to your life right now?

So here we hit a snag.  I don't really read a lot of blogs.  The blogs I do read,  I nominated when I won this award on my movie blog.  Like I said, though, I am happy to read any blog that is mentioned in the comment section.  If I like your blog, I will, of course, nominate it.

Thanks again Catherine and I hope everybody had fun reading my answers!
