The Liebster Award

*squee* I got tagged for an award! 

The Wookie Wifey at How to Feed A Wookie (seriously BEST blog name ever!!!!) tagged me. This is fun! 
  • List 11 facts about yourself
  • Choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers to nominate (not including your nominator)
  • Ask 11 new questions for the bloggers that you nominate
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you by your nominator
  • Thank your nominator and give a link to their blog
Here are 11 facts! :
  •  I am related to the Hatfields of the Hatfields and McCoys. It really does explain A LOT if you ever meet my dad's side of the family. Yeah....
  • I can do most handy work around the house thanks to growing up on the construction sites my dad was working on. Roofing, plumbing, irrigation, painting, repair, cement etc. Just not electrical cuz um...I'm accident prone and will elecrocute myself. 
  • I have never broken anything but have dislocated my elbow and my thumb
  • As part of my Music Education degree I had to take basics lessons in the main instruments. The only way I passed strings was to promise the professor I would NEVER  teach strings. Yup, I was THAT good. 
  • I want a pet skunk (with the scent glands removed)
  • At one point I had 8 fish tanks. I wasn't a crazy cat lady, I was the crazy fish lady
  • I am a nerd. I mean really, total nerd. Proud of it too! 
  • On that note, I stopped counting at 162 Star Wars novels I have read, there are many more after that, but my mom got depressed at how nerdy I am so I stopped counting! 
  • I don't have much luck with cars, people keep hitting me. I am on my 6th car. First two died before I got my license (but were technically mine) third died a day after it was given to me, fourth lost to an F-150, fifth lost to an Accord, and I'm on my sixth which I am determined to keep for a VERY long time! 
  • I have more hobbies than I know what to do with, and if I ever get a real craft room, no one will ever see me again
  • My favorite color is pink (aka my brain just died and I can't think of any other interesting facts)   
Here are the questions I got from Wookie Wifey:
  • Why did you start blogging?
    • Mainly to justify my nail polish stash. Figure if I was posting swatches I was being productive and therefore all my polish has a purpose. I also wanted to post up some of the random things I cook or craft
  • What is your favorite mixed beverage?  And spill the recipe!  (No pun intended, actually.)
    • If it is boozy it would be a Tequila Sunrise. Mainly cuz it has grenedine and grenadine is amazing. Recipe? Its some orange juice, a shot o tequila and as much grenadine as my mood dictates (super exact I know!!!) Non boozy would have to be an Arnold Palmer, which is half lemonade and half ice tea. (actually...I'm sure it would be pretty amazing with booze in it..hmmm have to try that one!)
  • If you could visit anywhere in the world, where and why?
    • Japan!!! I have always wanted to go since I was a kid and learn more about my culture. Oh and eat food. Lots and lots of tasty food. And take 100 million pictures cuz I'm Japanese and thats just what we do. =P 
  • What is your favorite thing about yourself?
    • Prob how random I am. I am a wealth of random and useless facts and skills and provide endless entertainment with how...umm...unique I am. 
  • What is the thing about you other people always point out but you don't see?
    • Thats a hard one. Some say I am talented with my crafts, but as a perfectionist I am never really happy with what I make. Others say I'm cute, but I see myself as cute kinda like a plushie. You know, small and round and squishy. Oh and bouncy. 
  • If you got filthy rich and decided to start a charity, what would you start?
    • It would be to provide music and food in at risk schools.  Music to feed the soul and cooking classes to feed the body.  Teach kids that they can cook good healthy food that is cheap without having to rely on cheap fast food to feed themselves. 
  • Do you have any hidden or secret talents?
    • I am talented in being accident prone.  That in itself is not a secret, its just how I am going to prove it that is super exciting. Like last week I cut myself with a plastic spoon. And lost a battle with a stapler. And hit my shoulder on a wall which somehow made my foot hurt. Yup, never a dull moment!! 
  • How do you feel about Mars?  (the planet)
    • I'm sure it holds many scientific breakthroughs, but I do not think we need to colonize there. We are already messing up one planet, we really don't need a backup to muck up. 
  • What is your favorite movie and why?
    • STAR WARS. Um, why? Because it is made of awesome that's why! Oh, need a better reason? It is a movie that I became hooked on as a kid, and even after watching it hundreds and hundreds of times, I still love.  I also love the other two movies in the original trilogy and the expanded universe books. Lets not even talk about the prequels or the new movies coming up. Lets just..not. I will get angry. 
  • What did you want to be when you were little?  If you didn't become that, what changed your mind?
    • I wanted to be a crew member on the Star Ship Enterprise. Due to the fact that it does not exist, I had to change career paths. I then wanted to be a teacher, but reality sucks and that just does not pay the bills so put that on hold. 
  • If you had a time machine, to when would you travel first and why?
    • Oh man, that's a hard one!! I have a thing for the royal court in England, especially when King Henry VIII was on the throne, so prob then. But only if there was a way to make sure I kept my head and didn't catch plague. 
Now for the tagging! I don't follow too many tiny blogs that haven't already been tagged.  I am going to tag Mel over at Fox and a Parasol.
