Sunshine Awards

My friend Jackie has nominated me for a Sunshine Award - an honour indeed, especially with the crap that I churn out - to think that people read it is an honour enough.

It appears that the Sunshine award was given because I bring a bit of sunshine to her day - again, unsure how this happens, but still. It's an honour.

So, I've been asked to answer eight questions and ask some of my favourite bloggers to answer the questions as well. So, here goes the questions:

1. What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?

I need to give three - as I hate Christmas with a passion, strangely, I rather enjoy Christmas films.

Of the ones I can watch again an again, Love Actually, It's a Wonderful Life and Die Hard (the first and the best Die Hard. How can you not enjoy a Christmas movie when Alan Rickman is in it?

2. What is your favorite flower?
Hands down, roses.

3. What is your favorite (non-alcoholic) beverage?
Again, does it have to be one? I can't do without coffee or Bickfords Lime Juice Cordial.

4. What is your passion?

Writing - I've wanted to be a writer since I was a small child. One day.

5. What is your favorite time of year?

Late Autumn when the leaves are falling.

6. What is your favorite time of the day?

When I make it, really early morning just as the sun has come up and the day is all new. What wonderful possibilities.

7. What is your favorite physical activity? 

What is an endorphin junkie's favorite exercise - if I had to just have one exercise I could do. Oh come on....  Can't I like nominate a favorite sweaty and non-sweaty exercise.

I can walk all day.
I love shunting weights around.
I love the buzz from spin class

But if I could do anything, everyday, without consequences - swimming. Love being in the water. Just don't do it enough.

8. What is your favorite vacation?
Again, you're asking a travel nut this question. Whether it be mooching around the ancient cities of Europe or lying by a pool in Thailand - I think my wandering solo adventures in Europe are my favorite way to spend my time off.

And as for the bloggers I nominate:

The Plastic Mancunian  -
Kath Lockett -
Elisabeth -
Elephant's Child -
Bron -
River -
Magical M

Still honoured as I know I churn out crap.

And you don't write crap.

No crap here.
You surprise me greatly with Die Hard!
Thanks for playing :)

Die Hard is THE BEST. My love for Alan Rickman is endless and matched only by my love for Bradley Whitford. Honestly, if you could clone the both of them (and throw in a little bit of Jon Stewart), you'd totally have my perfect man.

Right. Time to write! Thanks for asking me - I'm honoured!

Aw shucks, Pand - and you know what? You're ALREADY a writer!
