3.Answer 10 questions about yourself.
4.Nominate 10 bloggers.

So please take a moment to go visit Laura Besley over at Living Loving and Writing. Laura is a fantastic flash fiction writer and avid reader who reviews books at truly staggering speeds. And needless to say, she has an insanely sunny disposition- which is why it's so appropriate that this award came from her. Thank you so much, Laura. You rock my socks off!
Now, onto the 10 questions:
Fave color: Blue, all shades.
Fave animal: Eagle. They are amazing hunters but mainly it's just the flying that gets me. I'd give anything to fly like that.
Fave number: 7. No earthly idea why. But if you ask me to pick a number between one and ten, that's what I'm picking.
Fave non-alcoholic drink: Smoothies!!!
Fave alcoholic drink: White zinfandel or an amaretto sour. (I know, I'm so girly).
Facebook or Twitter: Twitter. I can count the number of times I've been on Facebook in the past four years on one hand.
Passions: My family and friends, Tang Soo Do, Writing, reading, learning (just about anything).
Prefer giving or getting presents? Giving, definitely. When I think of a good gift and the person I give it to is genuinely excited to receive it I am beyond thrilled.
Fave city? Edinburgh, Scotland. I've only been there once but it inspired me more than anywhere else I've ever been.
Fave TV Shows: Oh, too many to count. I watch a lot of TV and there are a number of really well-written shows on cable- HBO (Sopranos, Sex and the City, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, The Newsroom), AMC (Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Walking Dead), Showtime (Homeland, Weeds, Dexter) and Netflix that I'm a big fan of. Recent discoveries of note include House of Cards (Netflix- Kevin Spacey doing what he does devastatingly well. Absoutely the most impressive new series on television.) and Orange is the New Black (Also Netflix- good for them! And good for Jenji Kohan creating another hit after the end of Weeds!)
