My friend Gwendolynn Gage, you can meet her here at www.gwendolyngage.blogspot.com, nominated me for The Sunshine Award.
Which I thought was lovely!!
(Some of you are thinking...Jennifer? You mixed her with "sunshine?" WHAT ever!)
I think Gwen is very smart, so there. (Sticks tongue out at brother.)
The Rules Are:
1) Answer the eight questions asked by the person who gave you the award.
2) Nominate eight new people, and no tag-backs.
3) Ask eight new questions, or re-use the ones you were asked, for your nominees to answer.
Here are Gwen's questions...
1)What is your favourite TV show?
Hmmm, Survivor is fun, you know for the sociological aspects...and watching the prissy girls fall apart with no hope of staying clean. And Phineas and Ferb. Seriously, it is FUNNY!! And Downton Abbey.
2)Have you ever read a book on a friend's recommendation and if so, what was it and did you like it?
Hmmm, I've picked up a lot of recommendations from all kinds of this past year. But I'll narrow it down to the last 3 months. Since October, I've read Joanne Bischof (LOVED her debut novel Be Still My Soul!!), Tamera Alexander, Bonnie Grove and some un-published stuff . And frankly, the un-pubbed stuff was excellent.
3) Favourite Bible verse? Isaiah 40: 28-31
Do you not know?Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
4) What is your least favourite food?
Hmmm. Moose, or venison. HURL. I just hate the taste.
5) What is your favourite professional sports team?
6)What is your favourite part about blogging?
Meeting new people and making friends. Holy smokes, I have met some AMAZING people through author blogs. Wow. Yup. Meeting new friends.
7) Favourite Christmas song? Or any song?
O Holy Night, The Hallelujah Chorus. I mean, WHOA! I LOVE singing that!!
Regular song? I have to pick ONE? Get real!!
Some of the most popular ones on my ipod are:
Suo Gan-Susan Bullock
Part of Me-Katy Perry
La Bamba-Los Lobos
