Liebster Award

For @Geminiswords: Liebster answers

Ok so I already received the Liebster from my friend Penny (Http:// which I answered here:

But the lovely Gemini nominated me as well so I am going to answer her questions without nominating 11 new blogs. (Cheating! Yes I know, the Devil’s getting thirsty waitin for me to care. ;P)

What is your guilty pleasure?

Mmnnnn, so many ways to answer this. Food wise, cheesecake. Activity wise, reading blogs, especially those with romantic and/or sensual poetry.

Who is your favorite author?

Jane Austen

What would be your perfect first date?

Some sort of group activity (like a museum or party) where I would feel like I had an escape route. LOL I’m serious, I hated dating. Haaaaated. It. Deeply. Takes me a long time to warm up to people. Once I do it’s hard to get me to shut up.

Sweet or savory?

Both! Chocolate covered pretzels, brownsugar covered bacon, french fries in a smoothie…

Where would you rather be right now in the world?

Chicago, IL.

What is your pet hate?

My what now? Thing I hate the most? Or a pet I hate? I sense a Yank-Brit confusion here. The thing I hate most in the world is intolerance/prejudice.

What are you most talented at?

Writing? I honestly don’t know. That’s the thing I get the most compliments for. That and my ability to get people to look at something from a different angle.

If you were a cocktail, what would you be called?

The Cupcake. I know, cheating! Again! LOL

What is your most treasured possession?

I was going to kneejerk say my children but they aren’t a possession they’re a gift, so I will go with letters/keepsakes from my ancestors.

What is your favorite movie?

Dang it that’s hard. I would say tie between the BBC version of Pride&Prejudice (which is cheating again I know since that’s more a mini-series) and The Godfather.

Have you ever taken anything that wasn’t yours and if so what?

Yes. Slippers. In my defense I honestly didn’t realize I hadn’t rung them up at Target. My husband laughed about it for days because I wouldn’t wear them.

If you’re over 18, please go visit Gemini’s blog! She writes such beautiful D/s poetry, sometimes soulful, sometimes sexy, sometimes both, and sometimes her Joseph writes a response (maybe I should have said following their love story is one of my guilty pleasures…)

LIEBSTER: Some questions are answered, others pop up

The Rules:

  • When one receives the award, one posts 11 random facts about oneself and answers the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  • Pass the award onto 11 other blogs (while making sure one notifies the blogger that one nominated them!)
  • One writes up 11 NEW questions directed towards YOUR nominees.
  • One is not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated one’s own blog!
  • One pastes the award picture above into one’s blog. (You can google the image, there are plenty of them!)

I was nominated by Penelope Jones, aka Bad Penny, aka Sweet P, aka Bawdy Maude the Super Swell 50s Broad.  Her blog is and she writes sweet poems, raunchy poems, sweet stories, raunchy stories, whaaaaat-was-that stories, and also BDSM stories (and pictures, the pictures are the best part).

Eleven Random Facts about me:

1. I once participated in the Junior Olympics in fencing.

2. I finished all semesters of Differential Equations before my senior year in high school (wow, I use that math alllll the time now, for real… not.)

3. I hate anchovies.

4. I hate warm pineapples. Totally squicks me out. Gah!

5. I once hit on a monk in Assisi, but in fairness I didn’t realize he was a monk at the time. TOTAL false advertising. Italian men are tricky, ladies, let that be a lesson.

6. I had very blond hair when I was little but now it is dark. I don’t dye it.

7. When I was pregnant with my middle child I ate an avocado every day. Yeah, a whole one. Mmmnn.

8. I wear heels even on the days I never leave the house.

9. I read my first smut book at the age of ten.

10. I’ve re-read Pride & Prejudice probably every year since the first time I read it at the age of thirteen. (You can add how many years that is based on your assumption of how old I am. I suggest you make me in my twenties. My twenties were fun. I think.)

11. I have a sweet young sounding voice… and a really, really dirty mouth.

Penny Maude the Dirty Broad’s Eleven Questions:

  • 1. What is your favorite color and why?

Green. I love nature.

  • 2. If you could do one dare-devil move, knowing you would live through it, what would it be and      why?

I do not do daredevil moves. Nope, nuh uh. Bwak bwak.

  • 3. Have you had a one night stand?


  • 4. Did you know his/or her’s name?


  • 5. Name a quality in yourself you love?

My loyalty.

  • 6. Name a quality in yourself you don’t love?

My insecurity.

  • 7. If you could be a flavor of skittles, which one would you be and why?

Cherry. Why? …..Duh.

  • 8. Name one thing about your partner you love, or your dream partner would have?

His humor.

  • 9. If you could only have sex in one place forever, where would it be and why?

I find this question extremely confusing, Penny. One place as in my house? Outside? On a bed? Place in my body? *snicker* Alright, fine, beds are fun. Many things can be done with a bed, on a bed, against a bed. I prefer beds.

  • 10. How many times did you change your answer to question 9?

I dithered on it so long there was no need to change it. LMAO

  • 11. How many of you think Bad Penny’s always to blame?

Not me. In the words of Al Capone, Bad Penny’s “just providing a service”. *snicker*

My nominations:

My questions for my nominees:

1. What’s your favorite piece of clothing?

2. What’s your favorite accessory?

3. What’s the first book that truly shocked you?

4. If you were forced to choose, Would you choose sex but no love, or love but no sex? Why?

5. Bourbon or vodka?

6. Soup or salad?

7. What’s your favorite thing to do on a vacation? Why?

8. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Looking forward to your answers!


Liebster mien cupcake

I was nominated for this Liebster blog award thingy by Penelope Jones, aka Bad Penny, aka Sweet P, aka Maude (what I am now calling her in my mind now that I know her name isn’t actually Penelope but have no real name to call her. I will also picture her vacuuming her carpets wearing pearls, high heels, and a martini in her free hand. *shrug* It’s a free country.)

Anyhoo, I answer eleven questions, tell eleven random facts about myself then nominate eleven blogs to do the same. Trouble is, I am not sure I know eleven bloggers who would like to participate.

BEHOLD, a post in which I warn you, I may nominate unwilling people unless some of you bravely throw yourself under the bus and take one for the team. You can do it! It only hurts the first time…..running out of aphorisms here……

Let me know if you want to be nominated and I will direct traffic to your blog. 🙂
