The Rules:

The Liebster Award is a way to recognize and appreciate fellow bloggers whom you believe deserve some love and attention. This process does come with a few simple rules.

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer the 11 questions the person asked you
  3. Nominate other bloggers
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions of your own (Why 11? Because we like to go one step beyond.)

The Questions:

  1. Jello or pudding? Or, neither? Neither, I’m afraid.
  2. Do you memorize song lyrics? Oh yes, I do.
  3. If you could have any eye color, what would it be? Hair color? I have blue eyes and red hair, but I wish I had dark hair and violet eyes like Elizabeth Taylor. 🙂
  4. What do you want to be in life? A better person.
  5. Do you celebrate the holidays? Which is your favorite? Yes, and my favorite is Halloween.
  6. If you could change one thing in history, what would it be? Do you think it’ll help current situations? Hmmmm….. I don’t think I would mess with that even though I would definitely be tempted.
  7. If you could invent a food, what would it be? Candy? Vegetables? Meat? Candy!
  8. What’s something you really want to do on your bucket list? I really, really want to visit Cachtice castle. I am weird that way.
  9. Who’s your favorite superhero or villain? My favorite villain is Loki. I just love Hiddles.
  10. Do you prefer to stay inside or would you rather be outside? I like being outside.
  11. Do you think you could make improvements to your blog or do you love it just the way it is? If I could, I would add lasers… muhahahaha! lol Well, I always am making what I think are improvements but then I become dissatisfied and change everything all over again. I like how it is now very much, but you just never know how long that will last.

Thank you again, fluffymao of The Mayfields!

The Questions

  1. What Lovecraftian horror would you least like to encounter in a dark alley? As soon as I read the words “Lovecraftian horror,” the movie “Castle Freak” jumped into my mind and….. yeah, that would be scary. lol
  2. Have you ever played a tabletop RPG (D&DPathfinderDCC, etc.)? No, but looks interesting.
  3. Whether or not you have played a tabletop RPG, what class/race do you normally/would like to play?
  4. Milkshake or smoothie?  Details. I’m vegan, so I would go the smoothie route. 😀
  5. What do you like best about your blog (layout, story, anything)?  What do you like least? I like my story, although, I don’t always like how a storyline turns out. I like my layout/theme right now. I usually don’t like the theme. lol
  6. Who’s been your favorite character to write about or watch in-game? My least favorite character(s) to write were Cricket and Bex. I had this whole plan for them that just kind of didn’t do what I wanted. *sigh*
  7. What’s something you really want to incorporate into your story, but just haven’t managed to (yet)? I would like, in the future, to have an heir who is a stage actress. Maybe gen 5? I don’t know 😀
  8. If you could ask the Internet Conglomerate anything and have It answer, what would you ask It?  What kind of answer do you expect? How do you keep up with all of your social medias? I’m feeling so behind all the time.
  9. Would you buy a goat if it meant you could pet it whenever you wanted? Shoot, I’d buy a goat anyway! haha I would love a little colony of goats. 😀
  10. Special licenses aside, and suspending reality for a moment, what kind of animal would you have as a pet if you could?  Sparkle dogs are not animals and will be shot on sight. One of everything. LOL 😀
  11. When was the last time you had good pizza, like NY/Chicago good pizza? It’s been way too long.

Thank you again, Whitney Ibe Blog!

  1. What made you start blogging? I’ve been writing stories since I was about twelve and it just seemed natural to me to start a blog.
  2. If you could visit any country in the world, which would you visit? I would love to go to several different countries, but I think right now, I would love to explore Slovakia.
  3. What is your favorite food? I would have to say mashed potatoes.
  4. Favorite sport? Baseball. #goTigers!
  5. Do you prefer digital or physical books? I’ve been reading more digital books lately, but really prefer physical books.
  6. What is the biggest problem you encounter while writing? My biggest problem is trying to figure out how much information to release at a time about a particular character in order to keep a mystery going.
  7. What color are your eyes? Kind of a piercing blue.
  8. Recount a brief childhood story. What happened? Well, I wrote Leo doing this, but actually…. it was me. When I was a child, my older sister got this shiny new purple bike. It was beautiful. My dad had been painting something and put the leftover paint outside the back door, intending to dispose of it. I found it and painted my sister’s bike completely white, handle bars, tires, the seat, everything! I feel sorry for my parents (and sister) for what they put up with when I was a kid. haha
  9. What type of music do you like to listen to? I listen to all types of music. It just depends on my mood. I love old jazz like Louis Armstrong and Billie Holliday, but I also love U2, Sting, Panic at the Disco, Nirvana, etc.
  10. Do you collect anything? If so, what is it? I collect antique art glass by Fenton, Northwood, Jefferson, Imperial and many others. I have several pieces that I’m pretty proud of.

Thank you again, Vinay’s Blog!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you in the blog post.
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate as many bloggers as you want.

My answers to Vinay’s questions:

  1. If you were to travel to Mars, would you go? Yes!
  2. If you wanted to have a superpower. What would that be? Invisibility
  3. If you were given an option to choose between a library and a computer to improve your knowledge, which would it be? I know it would be the computer because that is more convenient, but I would like to think I would opt for the library.
  4. If you were to go back in time and correct yourself, would you do it or not and why? This is really a hard question for me because there is something I would like to go back and change but the problem is, that would change a couple other lives, too, which I would not want to do.
  5. Name the book which you have read that inspired you. “To Kill a Mockingbird.” It was really the first book I read that inspired me to think of story telling.
  6. Which is the most ecstatic hobby of yours? I find great joy in painting.
  7. Apple, Microsoft, Google. If you were to become the CEO of one of these companies for just one month, which would you choose? Hmmm…. good question. I would say google.
  8. Do you have a hobby that could become a career? If yes, what is it? My hobby of collecting antique and vintage art glass has become a career in some ways. Well, a few years ago, it was. I would go to auctions and buy glass pieces then sell them on my online glass shop. I no longer do this, though.
  9. Who inspires you the most to follow your dreams? My husband and children.
  10. Will you choose a villa or an apartment to live in? Villa
  11. Is there anything you’d like to ask me? Not at this time, but I would like to tell you how wonderful your writing is and that you are an inspiration!

My questions:

  1. What makes you roll your eyes every time you hear it?
  2. What would a world populated by clones of you be like?
  3. What’s your cure for hiccups?
  4. What’s something you really resent paying for?
  5. Do you think that aliens exist?
  6. What mythical creature do you wish actually existed?
  7. If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?
  8. What was the most unsettling film you’ve seen?
  9. What are you interested in that most people aren’t?
  10. What movie quotes do you use on a regular basis?
  11. What’s the funniest joke you know by heart?

And that is all of them! I can’t believe I’m finally caught up. (I’m not, actually.) Again, I apologize that this post was long and that my questions are borderline weird.

As for Nominees……. since I was so far behind, I don’t know who has or hasn’t done these yet. Please, if you haven’t done some of these and would like to, consider yourself nominated by me! ❤

Hugs and blessings to you all,
signature new r.c.

  1. Oh wow! Two nominations?! Congratulations, Rosemary! 💖 You totally deserve this praise; you’re writing is amazing, your stories have excellent craftsmanship and your characters are well-developed. I hope you’ll be celebrating somehow…like a treat, or some time to yourself!

    1. Thank you so much, Allysim! 😀 I appreciate your support and friendship so much. ❤ I think your writing is amazing, too and the same things about your characters and craftsmanship. 🙂 Hmmmm….. a treat doesn't sound half bad! lol

      Please feel free to take one of these awards. I probably shouldn't say this, but next week, I'm posting about being Uniquely Liebstered and I did list nominations for that, which you are a part of. But don't let that stop you from taking one today if you want to. 🙂

      P.S. May I use what you said on my Hugs page? 😀 I would be so honored.

      1. Ha! You’re SO hard to get along with! 😉😂 Support and friendship is all I’d offer you! I honestly hope its a friendship that continues to grow! Also, of course you can slap my comment on your Hugs page; I’d be honored to have it appear there! 💖

        Hmmm…which award do you think I should do? I’d be happy to one picked by you (many thanks in advance for my impending nomination).

        Brush up on your handwriting, because I’ll be tagging you for the handwriting challenge soon! You’re the first person I’d thought of to do it!

        1. Oh wow, that handwriting challenge! hahaha Do you know that I write in all caps? It looks so tedious and annoying. 😛 This sounds like fun! I’m so glad you’ll tag me.

          And, yeah, you’re SO hard to get along with, too! LOLOLOL Thank you so much for letting me use your comment.

          I think you should pick one or both. I’ll give you a head’s up that I’ve nominated you for a Liebster, but I’m also nominating people for the Unique Blogger Award so basically, you can have your pick next week, too. lol

          1. OMG I WRITE IN ALL CAPS, TOO! I do switch it up to traditional printed, or my print/cursive…my writing is just so bad. I got nominated by makplays, and I thought “I wonder what Rosemary would do for this…” LOL. Lucky you! 😉

            Guess I’ll do the Sunshine? Thank you so much! You’re too kind to me…💖

    1. LOL Thank you, Jowita! No, I thought the questions I posed for nominees were weird. hahaha 😛 Feel free to take an award if you want one. But I’ll let you know now that next week, more are coming out and I’ve nominated you then, too. Just an FYI. But don’t let that stop you from taking one today if you would like. 🙂

      1. Your questions for the nominations were actually very unique. Wow, you nominated me? Why are you always so sweet to me, what I did to deserve all this kindness from you? I never know. Well, I’m not going be around here next week probably because of the trip and stuff. And I actually would have to add up to the awards while I want to rest for a while. Writing all these chapters in advance has been wearing me down, I tell you. I don’t think I ever pushed myself this hard and yet I can’t stop plotting generation 4 with Samien in my head, this keeps coming back all the time. I hope I can get well with this.

          1. I don’t know if I am looking forward to it or fearing it. I am trying to figure out how to approach him. Lots of swearing on the horizon, lol. Actually, the end of generation 3 is getting closer each day and I’m afraid how you’ll take it. The endings of my generations are usually pretty… controversial, if you know what I mean.

            1. Well, what I’d say is, you can’t worry about how a reader will take what you write. You write the story the way you think best and the way you want to. I was so scared of writing the car crash and Jilly, but in the end, I just had to write it. 🙂 I still look forward to what you have in store.

  2. Very interesting questions that you posed there. I liked To Kill A Mockingbird too, though it wasn’t my first book ever read. I don’t remember what that was since I spent so much time with the Encyclopedia Brittanica, first the pictures and later the information, as that was the only books I remember us having in our home other than religious material. I would later venture into Little House, Anne Frank, Heidi and many others. I often had my nose buried in something.

    1. Thank you so much, Jolie! I’m sorry that I didn’t see your comment sooner. The first book I ever really read because I wanted to was Daring Detectives. It was soooo good. I still pull it out sometimes. But it sounds as if we’re a lot alike as far as reading material and growing up. I spent a lot of time with Encyclopedia Brittanica, too. haha I remember one time, I ran out of things to read and actually opened the cupboard under the sink and started reading the warning labels. Reading was my life. lol 😛

  3. Congrats on the awards! Your story is much deserving of them all.
    And I loved you answers to all of the questions. Collecting antique glass sounds so fascinating.
    And I am temped to give a few of your questions a go.

    1. Thank you! 🙂 I am crazy about antiquing in general but when I see a piece of art glass, I get very excited. lol

      Yes, please do give some of the questions a go! 😀 Oh, and be prepared for a nomination next week! :O 😀
