Liebster Award!

I was nominated for the Liebster Award! Thank you and hurray!! Now to fulfill my duties as a nominated one. :D

Here are the rules when nominated for a Liebster:
 a) Answer the eleven questions of the tagger.
 b) Share eleven facts about yourself
 c) Nominate up to eleven other bloggers
 d) Ask those nominees 11 new questions

1.  Do you have a favorite mug or teacup?
I was about to say no not really, but then I was like "Hang on!" My totally awesome Tonight Show Jimmy Fallon mug!! I just got it and I seriously love the thing. It makes me feel so special (even if I did buy it in a gift shop BUT IT WAS THE NBC GIFT SHOP IN NYC!)

 2.  Are you an adventurous eater?  (Do you try "strange" foods?)
Sure! I mean I'm not too keen on eating something like bugs, but I'll try just about anything once.

 3.  What fandoms are you into?
Thank you for asking! In no particular order, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Once Upon A Time, Star Trek, Sherlock, The Marvel Universe, etc. I'm sure there are some I'm missing.

 4.  What famous author/book do you not really care for?
Divergent. Liked the movie but the book pained me to read.

 5.  What obscure author/book are you nuts about?
Obscure? Uh... Does Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories count? Love those! Maybe Jules Verne or H.G. Wells? I love classics.

 6.  What's the oldest movie you've ever watched?
I've seen some old ones that is for sure. When I was quite a bit younger I loved the original black and white Little Rascals. Watched those all the time. As well as tons of black and white westerns. They don't make em like they used to.

 7.  What did you have for breakfast today?
A fresh peach. It was delicious.

8.  When did you first see your favorite movie?
My favorite movie? Now that is hard to pick out. I have a lot of favorites. I first saw The Avengers in a creepy tiny little classic theater when we were on a trip somewhere down south. I watch (and was amazed by) the new Star Trek movie when it was playing on tv. (I really was impressed by that one, having always been a fan of the tv shows) Lord of the Rings I watched because my brother begged me to. I guess, as for when, these have all been in the last 5 or so years.

 9.  Do you prefer fantasy or sci-fi?
Science fiction all the way!!

 10.  What did you expect your blog to be like when you started it? 
This blog? Just a place to talk about (and possibly fangirl over) movies. And to write up posts about my life. This is my second current blog. I write another one about my horses which you can find at www.thehorsenextdoormya.blogspot.com

 11.  Has it changed?  If so, how?
Its changed in the fact that I've made a lot of new friends and have found lots of new topics to write about. I have certainly enjoyed this blog a lot.

And as for eleven facts about myself... I'm a dog person, tv person, and chocolate person. I like adventures, going new places, and airplanes. I want to own a mini cooper, a horse farm, and a jet. And I love English and Scottish accents.

I nominate:
The Adventures of An Elven Princess
Running His Road
Bays Over Baes
In the Depths of Dreams
Amber on the Mountain
.... and anyone else who wants to be nominated!

    Rythmic Gymnastics because we never get to see it on tv because it's too late in Australia.. :( but I love watching it on Youtube or staying up late :P


    1. I love Robots of Sherwood! I think its probably the best episode with 12. I'm still hoping they make Robin Hood a companion because that would be hilarious. :D

    2. Yes me too!! :D 12 was just so witty and dry humour and it was perfect! I also loved Flatline with the baby TARDIS.. that would be perrrfect! I hope 12 gets a good new companion if Jenna Coleman does leave (although I'm totally not ready to see her go)

  2. Really interesting, I would find it so hard to say if I like sifi or fantasy better!

    1. Its a hard question! But I am totally a sci-fi person. I'm such a nerd. lol

  3. Strange foods... *shudders* DOCTOR WHO ALL THE WAY, OKAY? <--- Fangirl moment there

    I have to agree on your answer about not caring much about Divergent (even if it makes me feel all bad inside) because the idea is intriguing, but the books just progressively keep getting worse in terms of plot. Urgh.

    xoxo Morning

    1. Hurray for Doctor Who fans!!! *virtual high-five*
