I admit I have a mixed relationship with all the ‘tag’ things – they’re fun but the need to tag X more people freaks me out – because I don’t know many people. So, thanks, Mary of Wild Writing Dreams, for another set of mixed feelings. Now, let’s get to the fun part first.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you (done already at the top)
- Display your award (just above)
- Answer the questions you were asked
- Nominate 5 bloggers

- List the rules and display an award logo on your blog post (see above).
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and notify them by commenting on any of their posts.
- Ask the nominees 11 new questions.
Sunshine tag questions:
Is a hotdog a sandwich?
Well, let’s go full Sheldon Cooper on this. Technically, sandwich is a layer of bread, layer of ‘filling’, and another layer of bread. So, a hotdog can theoretically be a sandwich if it’s inside a sliced bread instead of a ‘drilled’ bread.
What movie would be so much better if it was made into a musical and why?
I was never into muscials so no idea.
What would be the creepiest thing you could say while passing a stranger on the street?
Almost anything, but if I want to max it up, something like ‘they’re coming’ or ‘watch out’ and running away…
If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?
I don’t think I have any special skills and my ability to pass anything on isn’t that great (by my limited experience when I tried to explain high-school level maths to my sister) – but if they believed I can teach them something, I’d ask them what, exactly, they’d like to learn, then do my best.
Would you rather be a hobbit or an elf for 24 hours?
#Teamelf. ’nuff said.
Liebster tag questions:
Off the top of your head-the first thing you think of-name an obscure fact you know.
Probably some anatomy fun facts – like the fact that the last ‘link’ of the pinky finger should, in normal human, fit precisely into the ear – a way to clean it up but not get so far enough to hurt yourself. Nature works like that.
What’s the craziest/weirdest thing you’ve ever done?
Having the idea to start writing and stick with it even when I realize I might need decade(s) to tell the story, maybe?
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
What mythical creature would improve the world the most if it existed?
Dragons – the ultimate solution to overpopulation (no matter if human or animal).
What’s something you would not want to share?
Some of my major screw-ups, I guess.
If you had a pet parrot, what would you teach it to say?
Stadium songs of the local football team, I guess.
If you were famous, what would you be famous for?
For not wanting to be famous, I guess? Seriously, I am afraid of being famous. Don’t scare me like that.
What animal would you choose to be your sidekick if you were in a movie?
A dragon. They’re bad-ass, strong, have natural armor, and could help me travel around.
If we’re talking real animals, then a wolf or a bear.
What was your dream job when you were younger?
Bus driver, I believe.
What’s the weirdest/stupidest way you’ve ever managed to hurt yourself?
I was using a hammer to smash walnuts that fell from the tree before being ripe, to feed grandpa’s chickens – but I missed one and hit myself in the arm.
Can you think of a movie title that best explain your life right now?
Not really. Is there an ‘I don’t know what I’m doing’ movie?
Now comes the second worst part: having to think up with a set of questions of my own. So let’s cheat a bit – I’ll make only one set of questions, of which the first five apply to the five-questions tag, and all set for the eleven-question tag.
- What place would you really love to visit?
- What is some relatively common skill you lack? (If you wonder – it’s swimming for me)
- Have you read a book that totally blew you away but nobody probably knows it?
- If you could have any fictional creature as a pet/companion, what would it be?
- What simple thing brings you a lot of joy?
- If you could choose a single spell to learn from any book/movie, which would it be?
- Tea or coffee?
- Which book (series) would you like to see made into a movie or TV series – or remade if it flopped?
- Have you ever avoided a hyped-up book/TV show/movie/game because you knew the hype set too high expectations? (feel free to say which)
- You’re invisible for one day, how do you use it?
- What was the first computer game you played?
The poor, unfortunate souls
Now, it comes the time to tag other people. There’s no way I could get to 11, so let’s keep it with 5 (but you have two sets of questions, so you’re theoretically nominated twice, meaning it’s 10) – and a wildcard one: if you’re reading this and aren’t in the nominations, feel free to join in for the fun for either set of questions.
So, now the poor, unfortunate souls I’m tagging – pretty much all the people I follow who are active weekly or more and aren’t on a hiatus:
- M.L. Davis of Uninspeired writers
- K.M. Allan
- Ed White of Ethereal Seals
- Yari Garcia of MyIndieWriting
- Lorraine Ambers
- The mentioned volunteer wildcard.
Well, that’s the wrap. I hope you’ve had fun reading this and learning something about me in a fun way – and maybe you’ll pass the fun on. But if you don’t… well, nothing bad will happen (I hope so, at least) so don’t feel pressed into it.
See you next time – probably with something more serious. Or maybe not…
