The Real Neat Blog Award

Thank you so much to Meagan @ Quibbles and Scribbles for nominating me for The Real Neat Blog Award. I love her blog! If you haven’t seen it, you should check it out. She has some great posts about books, film, shows, and life.


The Rules:

  • Display the award logo.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions from the blog who nominated you.
  • Nominate seven to ten bloggers.
  • Ask them seven questions.

Meagan’s Questions:

What is your favorite streaming service? If you don’t have any, what’s your favorite channel to watch? Or, you can answer both.

I am a hardcore binge-watcher. Stranger Things, Longmire, Grace and Frankie are all awesome shows that I enjoy on Netflix. I also love Amazon for The Marvelous Mrs. Maizel and Jack Ryan, and Twitch because I can watch Bob Ross’ Joy of Painting. However, Netflix wins for one reason:

Tommy Shelby

I love the show Peaky Blinders, and I love Tommy Shelby.

I’m a Cillian Murphy fan, and his role as Tommy Shelby is fabulous.

This series captivated me from the first episode, and I’m eagerly awaiting a new season!


What’s a song you’re embarrassed to say you like? (We won’t judge.)

Anything by Barry Manilow. (Remember you said you wouldn’t judge!) Copacabana, Can’t Smile Without You, Let Me Be Your Wings – I love them all. I have always loved Barry, much to my Tom Petty/Bob Seger-loving mother’s dismay and consider myself a true Fanilow! I’ve also been a member of the Barry Manilow International Fan Club for two decades, so….yeah…there’s that.


How would you describe yourself as a child?

Sensitive, funny, creative…weird, insecure, smart, studious, self-competitive. I always thought I was a pretty weird kid.


And what were your favorite toys/things to do?

I loved to read and write from a pretty young age. I loved listening to music, swimming, and going to the library. I was also an avid tennis player.

I also like to reenact tv shows and movies. My friends and I would pretend to be characters from The Wizard of Oz, The Smurfs, Jem and the Holograms, or the X-Men. We always had a blast!

I remember loving to go for bike rides. I played a ton of basketball in my driveway. I irritated my brother a lot – that was always fun.


What is your favorite dog breed?

This is a tough question since I absolutely adore dogs! Currently, I have three dogs- a Boston Terrier, a Chihuahua, and a Japanese Chin. They are all lovely and loving and dear to me and absolutely adorable.


If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you’d do with it?

First, I would put money aside for my kids’ college fund. Then, they would never have to worry about finances. I would also pay off my house and any other outstanding debt. Then, I would go on an awesome family vacation – Italy, Spain, the Grand Canyon, Australia – there are so many places I’d like to see with my family! One of my bucket list goals is to go to the Australian Zoo, so I would definitely do that.


Would you rather be a hero or a villain for a day?

A hero. I don’t think that I could never be a villain. There so mean and…well… villainous!

I could never live with the guilt of knowing I intentionally hurt someone else, and I would definitely rather help people than harm them.

Plus, I think I would look pretty spectacular in a Wonder Woman costume – just sayin’! 🙂


My Nominations:

My Questions:

  1. What is your favorite movie?
  2. If you could only read one book series for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?
  3. If you were a superhero, what would your name be, and what super-powers would you have?
  4. If you could meet one fictional character, who would it be? Why?
  5. What is one thing on your bucket list?
  6. What is the title of the best book you’ve read this year?
  7. What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat?

Thanks again, Meagan! That was so much fun! 🙂
