If you follow my blog, you know I’m not into awards. It reminds me of when I got medals in gymnastics: Gee, after working out 4 hours a day, every day, even holidays; all the struggle, pain, blood, sweat, and tears; and performing 8 different routines to the best of my ability — thanks for this cheap medal which doesn’t really mean very much. (Perhaps I’m exaggerating.)
But I know awards have meaning for many bloggers, including Lisa at “Life of an El Paso Woman.” However, don’t expect me to follow the rules — that’s asking way too much of me. 🙂
Ten questions for my nominees (Please answer the same questions)
Tea or Coffee? Neither.
Where do you source your inspiration from whether it be in life or writing? I would guess that suffering from chronic pain is my inspiration for just about everything, as it pretty much rules my life.
What is your favorite color and how does it inspire you? I love all colors, but my favorite is probably blue. Or maybe hot pink. I dunno, might also be black. But then, I’m very fond of purple and peach, too. As far as inspiration goes, I think I’m more inspired by people than colors. Of course, people come in a variety of colors… Sorry, I digress.
What is the last book you read and how did it make you feel? I used to read books a lot, but as the pain has increased, my ability to focus on a book has decreased. If I remember correctly, the last book I read was “11/22/63” by Stephen King.
Where were you born? Pennsylvania, but I grew up in Texas.
Can you play an instrument? Is a vibrator an instrument? Just kidding. 🙂 I played the flute when I was young and always wanted to play the piano or guitar, but I can’t seem to figure out how to read music. Actually, I have no talent for other languages… There I go, digressing again.
What one thing is guaranteed to make you cry? I try very hard not to cry, as it just makes my facial pain worse. But anything sad can make me cry. I’ve also been known to shed a few happy tears, like after finding out that #LoveWins!
What would you say is your favorite restaurant? Right now, it’s Pelicans, home of the best ranch dressing in Albuquerque. But I rarely eat at restaurants.
What is the word/phrase that you use way too much? Dude. 🙂
There, now you know more about me than my pet pig (which I don’t have). And now that I’ve bored ya’ll to tears, feel free to copy and paste these questions into your own post and join the fun. 😀
