You're Nominated - Yes, You!....

I'm finally getting back into the swing of things so I wanted to make sure I get this posted as soon as I was really feeling up to it - I have a series of Question of the Day I do at another site so having to think up new questions (especially when my braincell was not too coherent and physically, I was very under the weather) was a bit more than I wanted to be challenged by. So without further ado....

To my delighted surprised, my little ol' blog was nominated by Our Little Family for the Liebster Award. I consider this a Pay It Forward type award - everyone wins so to speak. I get to answer some questions and share 11 facts about me to the world and to my nominator (I feel like I've won the Oscars - should I do an acceptance speech? Nah - don't want to bore anyone!)

O.k. so first here's my answers to the questions:

1. Coke or Pepsi
 - Oh, most definitely Coca Cola Classic, over ice pretty please. 
2. What’s your favorite movie of all time
-  Ugh. That's like asking what is your favorite flavor of ice cream! play it safe, I'll answer Singing In The Rain.
3. What’s you best childhood memory?
- Seeing the Nutcracker Ballet.
4. What would your “Best Day Ever” be?
- Beach with family all healthy and dolphins playing in the surf. 
5. Are you a Morning Person or a Night Person?
- I don't know. My sleep cycle is so messed up anymore, I've forgotten!
6. One thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
- I can do some pretty decent cartoon character voices.
7. Why did you start blogging?
- Because I'm tired of arguing with the voices in my head so I'd thought I'd direct my efforts elsewhere. Ha!
8. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
- Exercising my mind - being creative. I need to be challenged. Well, most of the time.
9. Your favorite ice cream flavor?
-  I knew it I knew it I knew it!!! Ice cream would be mentioned somewhere! Right now, tropical sherbert!
10. Do you have pets? How many?
- Not at the moment unfortunately :(
11. If you could do any one thing what would it be.
- Ride roller-coasters! I can't because of my heart condition.

Now here are 11 facts - tell them Johnny what they've won....(sorry, in a bit of a goofy mood right now)

1. I once worked with a lady who was going to name her new daughter Jezebel. Glad she changed her mind!
2. I actually enjoy doing math. Up to a point. Then my braincell tweaks.
3. I get the need to go and do adventurous things that most people find crazy, just for the heck of it.
4. I can't whistle worth a darn but I can do a pretty good donkey bray or Mr. Limpet impersonation.
5. Calvin and Garfield are my mentors.
6. There are 2 lighthouses in the same room with me at the moment. One lights up when it rings - sporadically - well, at least in theory. Got it to work once.
7. I absolutely detest getting my picture taken. Truly hate it! I freeze up and look way too grumpy.
8. I'm distantly related to at least 2 living former Presidents of the USA. Also to a bunch of other rather noted historical people.
9. Somewhere around here I have a replica Samurai sword (non-cutting of course; yes, full size).
10. My eyes change color naturally all the time - very noticeably too -  depending on mood, health, what I'm wearing, where I'm at, etc.
11. I like to read dictionaries. Yes, I am weird but then that should be of no surprise to anyone by now.
