What are you most looking forward to this summer?
Two things, actually. I will be attending the memorial of my dear Grandfather whom is the only Grandpa I ever had. He died right before Memorial Day weekend. I will be seeing all my relatives and family there and look forward to celebrating the life of my wonderful Grandpa, who has meant so much to me and my family. <3
On that same weekend I will be getting together with two very special friends whom I have yet to meet in real life- that’s right, I’m meeting up with some penpals. More on that after the fact, because all three of us are going to have a lot to share with you on that adventure. ;)
What is your favorite movie this year?
Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out. IT WAS SOOOO CUTE! I loved it! It basically described the world inside my head and what’s constantly going round in my mind. It was really fun, very cute and had such a good message to it all. My favorite movie this year, hands down. :)
The violin/fiddle. I love the violin so much, I could listen to it all day. I love the fiddle as well. A childhood friend taught me how to play some basic tunes on his fiddle when we were very young, and I have wonderful memories of that. :)
Favorite genre of books to read?
Big surprise that no one would have ever guessed- historical fiction. ;) I will read historical fiction forever and ever and ever and ever… I really love historical fiction. And biographies! Biographies are really good.
Favorite Bible verse?
Psalm 25:5 Lead me in your truth, Oh Lord, and search me, for you are the God of my salvation, on you do I wait all day.
Favorite historical era?
The Cold War! Not very many people realize how much stuff went on in that era. Ohhhh mannnn is there a ton of things to learn about it, and things we’re still discovering! The Cuban Missile Crisis, the spy exchange, the 1983 Russian nuclear scare, the Berlin Wall… so many stories to be read and told in that era.
Favorite short story?
Do my own count? ;) Because honestly, I haven’t read very many short stories. If I had to choose one I’d choose the short story collections in Susan Marlow’s Tales from the Circle C Ranch. The one in the snow where they go and get the Christmas tree was my favorite. :) If I can choose one of my own favorite short stories, I’d have to pick Stranger or Happy Brother’s Day. Both are short stories in the Mornelly series I’m doing… everyone will get to read those sometime. ;)
Steak! Or yak. I love steak. And yak. Both. Okay, steak. ;) (And yak… ;D)
Be Thou My Vision. Goal- to sing the whole song in original Gaelic. I still haven’t gotten around to learning it all yet, but I’m planning on it!
Favorite movie soundtrack?
Noooooooooo!!!!!!! I have too many favorite movie soundtracks! That’s practically all I listen to- movie soundtracks and Christian music. I LOVE movie soundtracks! Augh!
If I had to choose just one, it would have to be Kung Fu Panda 2. I have gotten more story ideas out of that music than anything else. A close second- all the Indiana Jones soundtracks. :)
Okay, my nominees!
And here are my questions. Be prepared… for great randomness. >:-)
You discover that someone you’ve known your whole life is in fact- not real. Reaction?
Favorite old TV show? (has to be earlier than the eighties)
You open your door to discover the dandelions in your yard have actually turned into real lions. How are you going to take care of this problem?
Guinea pigs or chinchillas?
Do you follow world/national news much?
What’s your favorite verse in Revelation?
Which Nordic (Scandinavian) country do you want to visit? Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Denmark or Norway?
Do you know what the Baltics are?
If one of your fictional characters (or a character from your favorite TV show or movie or book) was to be your mentor, who would you choose and why?
And finally- would you rather be bucked off a horse and break your arm and a rib, stepped on by an elephant and break your leg or nearly drown in a river? (Okay, that’s just a weird question… ignore my random ponderings, this is how my mind works.) ;)
Thanks soooo much Jesseca for the nomination! I really was so excited to receive it! :D Can’t wait to see what everyone’s answers are! Feel free to comment and let me know when you write up your post so I can read it! :D
