The Liebster Award

Thanks to Jess at Like Star Filled Skies for nominating me for The Liebster Award! This is a fun one because the questions are different every time. This is the first time I’ve been nominated for it. Here are her questions to me –

1) What is your favorite fruit?

I’m down with most fruits. I like cherry flavored candy the most, but apples are the best fruit to eat. They’re simple and they keep in the fridge for weeks.

2) If you could be any superhero you wanted, who would it be?

Wonder Woman. Although, my ideal super power is telekinesis.

3) What one book could you read over and over again?

Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox. It’s so dark and sad and beautiful and Holly and Artemis finally acknowledge their feelings and…gah. Every bit of it is wonderful. Colfer’s writing is at the acme. I love it so much. I never get tired of reading it.

4) If you could own any exotic animal you wanted, what would it be?

I love iguanas but they require too much care. Chameleons are adorable, but they’re too shy and delicate. So, my ideal exotic pet would be a bearded dragon. Rather short life span and a lot of personality.

Oh wait, did it say ANY animal I wanted? WHY, A KOALA OF COURSE.

5) Favorite sport to watch on television?

I hate all sports except for the Olympics. So probably Olympic track or Olympic gymnastics.

6) How would you describe your style?

I’m trying to wear all black at work because I’m a dye chemist. Many of my clothes have been ruined by dye stains. Outside of that, I’d love to have the rockabilly style  – punk meets Mad Men. But in reality, I settle for dressing like most 20-year-old skinny white girls at Starbucks. It’s hard to find unique clothes. Everything at the mall is the same.

7) What 3 things would you like to do before you die?

1. Win a Nobel Prize.

2. Publish a bestseller.

3. Win an Oscar.

8) If you could move anywhere other than where you live now, where would that place be?

I enjoy Charleston, actually. It’s got the right balance of weather, good food, easy traffic, decent amount of activities. If I was to move anywhere else, it would probably be Switzerland or Italy. Sometimes I think I want to get out of this country, and Italy’s got the pretty setting while Switzerland has a good economy.

9) Favorite book? Why?

I dunno. It used to be The Time Traveler’s Wife, because the writing is so lovely, but the characters are so pretentious. I really do adore the Artemis Fowl series, but I feel weird calling one of those my favorite. I sorta think I haven’t read my favorite book yet.

10) As a kid, what did you always want to be when you grew up?

Oh, the usual. Dentist, ballerina, pop star, actress….but my desire to be a writer and film director stuck with me til the end.

  1. Cheers! This should be fun :) I used to have bearded dragons, but we ended up having to give them away because there was no more room in the reptile room. BTW koalas like to climb people like trees. It’s adorable and painful at the same time.

    • I’ve heard bearded dragons are a lot of fun! But like any reptile, they require much more care than a cat or dog. On the bright side, I’ve heard they don’t poop much :P

      Oh, I bet being an environmental scientist in Australia has exposed you to plenty of koalas! I totally want to hold a koala some day. My boyfriend got to hold one when he visited Australia. We have a zoo nearby which had a few koalas, but I’m pretty sure it’s not an interactive exhibit. Still, I want to at least *see* one!

  2. They do require the usual reptile necessities, but they don’t require as much attention as cats or dogs. They are pretty content being left alone, but they are also lots of fun. And nope, not much poop! Can be pretty stinky when they do though.

    I’ve seen my fair share :) Everyone always comes to Australia to see the koalas! Honestly, I prefer kangaroos, but that may be because I’ve partially raised one. Koalas are cute and cuddly. I’m sure Australia Zoo does a roaring trade with their interactive visit!

  3. I will have to agree with living in Charleston. It’s a beautiful, but then I love the Carolina’s. Koala’s are adorably cute :). I enjoyed your answers and thanks for the nomination. You’ve given me some things to think about. Hope you’re feeling better.
