SUNSHINE....

Hi Sunshine lovers!   Boy, could I use a little bit of Sunshine on this rainy, cold, chilled to the bone, kinda day.  The fabulous Gracey at Fashion For Giants granted me the honor of receiving the Sunshine Award. She and I have been playing Words With Friends for a long time now and following each others blog.  Yes, we are still going at it.  She still kicks my butt most of the time but I am a real sucker for a good challenge.  Thank you Gracey!!
     Questions and answers from Gracey:
  1. Tea or coffee?    COFFEE OR DIE...please have cream and sugar available if I come over, not the powdered kind of creamer, real cream or half and half. Raw sugar, but if you have regular that's ok too, thank you!
  2.  What would the name of your autobiography be?   LIFE IS MORE FUN WITHOUT RITALIN AND WHY.  Rob is convinced that I have ADHD according to Dr. Oz.  Is that a bird? I must get my oil changed, how is your mother doing?  I call it multi, asking and tasking. 
  3.  Reality TV; guilty pleasure or sheer idiocy? HONEY BOO BOO IS SMARTER THAN WE THINK AND HAS MORE MONEY THAN ME. 
  4.  Favorite James Bond actor? NEXT QUESTION, I do like Sean Connery though. 
  5.  Ocean or mountains?  MOUNTAINS TAKE MY BREATH AWAY WHEN I VIEW THEM. 
  6. Favorite author?   SADLY, I DON'T HAVE ONE BECAUSE I DON'T READ NEARLY ENOUGH BUT I DO MEMORIZE BIBLE VERSES.  So, God inspired authors?
  7.  Thanksgiving pie; pumpkin, pecan or something else?   FOOD IN GENERAL, I HAVE A PASSION FOR FOOD, I CAN EAT AN ENTIRE PUMPKIN PIE WITH COFFEE AND WHIPPED CREAM.  FOR REAL FOLKS, ASK ROB. 
  8.  What are your thoughts on techno music?   I DIDN'T PUT MY HIP OUT OF ALIGNMENT TO COUNTRY MUSIC, YES TO TECHNO AND ANYTHING WITH A FIST PUMPING BEAT.  I HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO SWING MY HAIR AROUND A TIME OR TWO.  I DON'T CARE IF MY NECK IS SORE THE NEXT DAY. 
  9.  What is the last movie you saw in a theater? SOME CRAP IN 3D, FORGET THE NAME OF IT, I HAVE 3D AT HOME NOW THAT I NEVER USE.  I WILL GO AGAIN WHEN MOVIE SNACKS ARE A DOLLAR A BOX WHICH WILL BE NEVER....
  10. And, finally, because Halloween is tomorrow, what is your favorite scary movie? AS YOU MAY OR MAY NOT KNOW, MY MOM LOVED SCARING ME AS A KID SO I SAW EVERY SCARY MOVIE IN THE 70'S BUT TRILOGY OF TERROR AND BURNT OFFERINGS SCARRED ME FOR LIFE.  I have what didn't kill me and made me stronger...CHARACTER!!!

Noooooooooooo! not the Sunshine award! I'd be more comfortable winning something like "It's always Sunny in Philadelphia"!!!!
What am I going to do now!
Thank you my friend. You look great in that sweater dress and as always your blog is an inspiration!

You are a ray of sunshine!! You and I take coffee the same! Yes ma'am. Only my thyroid bit the dust and now I am too nervous for anything but decaf. Oh well. At least there's that! I love the previous post as well! That lovely cape and bright red looks lovely on you!! xoxo Lynn

Bethie The Boo said...

Congratulations on your award Dawn! You bring sunshine into our lives through each and every post! HAHAHA I wanna know if you contacted cupcakes and cashmere. I think you should! Gary Pepper took note of one of my earlier posts and liked it on Instagram, so you'll never know! ohhhhhhh when movies were cheap and snacks were too. i so wish those days would come back. it cost me a pretty penny to see the last james bond movie. that's why i'm very selective.

Thank you, Dawn, for answering my questions. I know these awards can take a lot of time, but I LOVED your answers! Also, Sean Connery is a good answer.

Dawn, you really make me laugh, I love your answers to Gracey's questions, and your questions are hilarious, typically you! So you want to know what I do in public toilets and what my parents got up to in the bedroom? If I told you, THAT could be my most embarrassing moment...
Thank you for picking me! I may not do it, because I am generally a lazy arse and struggle to think of funny or interesting answers - it's like having homework all over again and I put it off and grumble... But I really appreciate the acknowledgment.
PS. Can we have a little clip of you pumping your fist and swinging your hair? Bet you play a mean air guitar too! xxxx
