If you’re a blog reader, you’ve probably seen this Sunshine award thing going around. It’s kind of a cute little way to acknowledge that you enjoy somebody else’s blog.
The way this works is when nominated, you answer designated questions from the blogger who nominated you.
Here are Brittany’s questions:
- What is your favorite thing about fall?
I’m going to be a Debbie Downer here and say the sound of leaves crunching under my feet when I run. If you’ve not been following along, I haven’t been doing much running lately. In fact, I was going to announce that I’m officially not running until 2014. I’m at least trying to make that a goal. I kept saying “until I’m better”, but I keep feeling better, then I go for a run, and then my feet or something else hurts. We have all my issues tracked back to my sciatic nerve now (yay answers! boo sciatic nerve!), so I should start seeing more progress.
- What is your favorite animal?
Barney Stinson. Obviously.
- When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A veterinarian. But then I realized that I pass out at the mention of blood and guts, so that was a no-go.
- Sweet or Savory?
I’m kind of over sugar. Like seriously over. It gives me a headache and doesn’t make me feel well. I’ve been wanting pizza SO BAD lately, and nothing can cure that craving because pizza is not pizza without tomato sauce (you can try to convince me otherwise, but you’re not going to win).
- Favorite kind of music?
I don’t have a favorite kind because my music taste is ALL over the place, but I am a HUGE fan of The Current. And if you ask me now what I want to be when I grow up, I want to be a radio DJ for The Current.
- Who is one person past or present that you would like to meet?
Dead: Michael Jackson. I know there are way more interesting people out there, but seriously, this man was a genius. Alive: David Bowie. Just plain genius.
- Favorite TV show?
Currently it’s New Girl and Portlandia.
- Favorite color?
I think it’s blatantly obvious that the answer to this question is pink.
- What is your dream vacation?
I wouldn’t say this is a “dream” vacation, but I want to take Mark to Boston and spend a week there or so.
- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Colorado. Except it sounds like their weather might be worse than Iowa’s weather …
And here are Lindsay’s questions:
- Do you believe in aliens? Why or why not?
I don’t know if I do believe in aliens because, like current events and politics, I prefer not to think about it. Existence of other intelligent life would be interesting, and I think that it is highly probable.
- If you could do ANYTHING in the world and have that be your career, and your skills, paycheck, or anything else was not an object, what would you do?
A radio DJ for The Current, or at least work for them because it would be really cool. Otherwise I liked Lindsay’s answer of being a professional outdoorswoman.
- What is your earliest childhood memory?
I don’t know what the earliest one is, but I remember eating a grape fruit rollup and drinking a coke while watching a horror movie, and then I barfed. Grape-flavored things still gross me out.
- What’s for dinner tonight?
That’s a good question. I have no clue. But I bet it’ll be good because Mark is here and he’s cooking.
- What was the most fabulous vacation you have ever been on in your entire life?
I don’t get to take vacations very often. So I often think of my work travel as vacation because they send me to more exotic places than I can afford. I went to Boston for the HOW Conference last summer, and that was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I love that city!
- If you HAD to give up one of your senses (touch, taste, sight, hearing, or smell) which would it be?
TASTE. I know this is supposed to be a hard question, but I have a ton of stupid food allergies, and all I want is pizza. If I could have the texture of pizza (which I can) without the taste, maybe that would work? Or maybe not.
- Would you rather always be super freezing cold or ridiculously overheating hot?
SUPER FREEZING. Hands down. I hate sweating unless I am planning on it.
- Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to hold myself accountable for marathon training 5 years ago. It’s morphed quite a bit since then.
- What was the last compliment you received and what was the last one you paid to someone?
Mark told me that he loves my work. And I told my co-worker that she was so organized.
- What is your most favorite thing to eat?
PIZZA OH MY GOD PIZZA. Seriously. I’m going to whine about this until I get pizza and don’t get sick.
So now I’m supposed to nominate other bloggers for this award. I feel like everybody’s already done this, so instead, head over to my blogroll page and see all the people that I really like reading (it’s a work in progress, so if you aren’t on there, shoot me a message or leave me a nasty comment and I’ll add you).
Answer one of these questions for me. You know you want to!
