Emily, of Altogether Unexpected, awarded me the Sunshine Blogger Award. I believe I may have been given this award before but I’m not sure and her questions are fun, so we’re going with it. The rules are: display the graphic, thank the person you gave you the award (thanks, Emily!), answer the nominator’s eleven questions, ask eleven of your own, and nominate eleven other bloggers.
I’m adhering to all of those rules except the last one because I’ll be on vacation when you read this and I won’t be able to tell people that they’ve been nominated. 🙂
In what city were you born?
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I’ve never actually lived there – I was just born there. (Much of my life was spent three or fewer hours away from Toronto though. Until my family moved to Edmonton.)
Which book made you a bibliophile?
Um…I can’t remember that far back. According to the internet, a bibliophile is someone who collects and loves books and I’ve been obsessed with reading/owning allll the pretty books for longer than I can remember. I do think that Northanger Abbey was my introduction to the bookish fangirl life, so there’s that.
What is your favorite film?
Right now? ‘A Quiet Place’. Just watched it again last night and I maintain that it’s one of the very few absolutely perfect movies out there. I cannot get over the soundtrack, Emily Blunt’s performance, or John Krasinski’s AMAZING directing skills. They’d better not mess up the sequel. (I’M BEGGING IT TO BE GOOD.)
What is your favorite Bible verse?
I’ve always found John 21:25 to be extremely awesome.
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
Like? It’s just amazing. Thinking of all those other things that Jesus did (and does and will do) and how John is so matter of fact that all the books in the world can’t contain this Person.
Favorite episode of Sherlock?
ACK. How? Can I choose? There are things that I love about each one. So many things. I’m probably going to go with ‘The Riechenbach Fall’ though because there’s sooooo much going on and I love how loyal John is and all the Moriarty and Sherlock is BRILLIANT (as usual). It’s a very deep, cool episode and it makes me emotional which I like because I’m That Sort Of Person.
Though I also adore ‘The Final Problem’. I know a lot of the fans dislike it because it veers away from the show’s tone and mood and all that but I love the creepiness and desperation and familial connections. ❤ (And you-know-who’s Not Return.)
First foreign country?
Venezuela. My mom was pregnant with me when she went there on a missions trip. (But other than that, I’ve only been to the States. Boring, right?)
Pizza. And poutine. And Chinese cuisine. EAT ALL THE FOODS.
British accents or Scottish accents?
Irish, thank you very much. 😉
First Marvel film?
‘Captain America: The First Avenger’. Fell in love with Cap, Marvel, and superheroes in general because of that movie. It’s almost a betrayal to say that I’m more of a DC fan now. *cringes*
Who is your favorite British actor/actress?
My favorite British actor is Tom Felton and my favorite British actress is Emily Blunt.
When did you start blogging, and why?
Okay, so the earliest blog of mine that’s still knocking around is TotallyHorseCrazyAndHorseStories (what a mouthful!) which was started in February 2011. But I think I had a card-making how-to blog before that. I was sooooo cringy. Someday I’m going to revisit old posts from previous blogs and laugh at them on this blog, lol. I started blogging because it was what everyone else was doing and I wanted to share my love for cards, horses, books, Jane Austen…and eventually everything. Blogging has been a part of my life for over eight years and I doubt I’ll stop anytime soon.
