Life is Good Award

Jana of The Little Black Book gave me the Life is Good Award a couple of weeks ago. Thanks, Jana, what a beautiful and fun award! But to earn it, I must answer 10 questions posed by Jana, so here goes!

1. Favourite fictional character?
I love all the rabbits in Watership Down by Richard Adams -- Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig, Silver, Dandelion, etc. It's impossible to single out just one.

2. What or who would you like to be born as in your next life?
I want to come back as the Pope so I can drag the Catholic Church kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Women priests! Married clergy! Same-sex marriage! Birth control for everybody! Full reparations to sexual abuse victims! Redistribution of Vatican wealth to the poor! Bwahahaha!

3. Is there anyone in your life with whom you share all your secrets?
Aren't I doing that in answering these questions?

4. What was the most embarrassing nickname you were ever given?
I don't know because the worst ones are always given to you behind your back. But I shudder to think.

5. Who is your favourite Friends character?
Oh, no contest. Phoebe because of her exquisite song Stinky Cat.

6. Tango or the Ballet?
When it comes to dance, I'm afraid Lady Gaga music videos are more to my taste. Yeah, I know I have no class.

7. Blind date or speed dating?
Well, this shows how old I am but I've never speed dated. I've been on blind dates though. The worst one occurred about a million years ago and involved a guy named Suzuki who was a foreign exchange student. Aichihuahua.

8. A home-cooked meal or eating out?
I adore eating food in restaurants prepared by other people. But if a good cook is making me a home-cooked meal, that's great too! See the common denominator?

9. Favourite movie?
Oh, Casablanca, no contest.

10. Last thing you do at night?
Pee. Hey, you asked.

So now I get to pass this Award on to six other bloggers who must answer 10 of MY questions! Here are the nominees . . .

Paul C at quoteflections

The Wizardess epi at Go out beneath the naked night

Eternally Distracted at Eternally Distracted

Corey James at Madtexter

. . . and here are my 10 probing questions for them:

1. What's the best decision you ever made in your life?
2. What's the worst decision you ever made in your life?
3. What's your favourite body part?
4. Whose ass would you most like to kick?
5. What's the first thing you would buy with a million bucks?
6. Star Wars or Star Trek?
7. If you could BE a movie star, who would you want to be?
8. If you could DO a movie star, who would you want to do?
9. If you were about to be executed, what would you want for your last meal?
10. Who's your favourite superhero?

Have fun, kids! I look forward to reading your answers!

How fun!
Love your insights! :0)

Wendy said...

I loved "Watership Down". Did you read "Shardik" by the same author? So different but still magickal. And I'm right there w/ you about blind dating ;)

Suzie said...

What a pretty award! And I loved reading your answers. .some are SO simple and right, yet few would see the forest for the trees.

Although I'm not Catholic, I find that you coming back as the Pope quite refreshing!

And I'm wiping my brow that you didn't list my name. .you came up with some wicked questions! lol

Patsy said...

Great answers - thank you for sharing. :o)

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hi Wendy -- Yes, I read "Shardik" and "The Plague Dogs" too -- I went on a real Richard Adams kick for a while!

mxtodis123 said...

Congrats on your award. I love to eat out also. Nothing like having dinner served to you.

Emme Toaye said...

Great answers, I think you are ready for a prime time TV talk show now!

Anonymous said...

Hey you, keep your hands off Pheebs!! I even named my car Regina Phalange... well that just sounds stupid now but it was funny at the time ;0)

I have copied your questions and will post the answers in the next couple of days - You are very honoured, I've only ever played tag once before and that was with Elly... and you know how forceful she is!!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Oh E.D. -- to put me in the same league as Elly -- or even mention me in the same breath as her -- I HAVE ARRIVED! Thank you!

Snap said...

Fun stuff! I'm a Watership Down fan myself. Finally found a hard back copy that didn't break the bank! :D :D

BugginWord said...

Aww shucks. I'm almost too flustered to leave my snarky comment. Fortunately for you I bounce back quickly.

Since you need a new embarrassing nickname, I'm happy to oblige. Heretofore I shall call you Intestinal Glitter. You're welcome.

Paul C said...

Debra, thanks for the challenge, (I think):
- best decision:other than marrying my wife, teaching
- worst: not becoming a part time farmer
- body part:(leading question?)- my legs to get me around the squash court
-my ears (I should really listen more, and they are too big)
-a million: buy another pure bred dog, maybe another German Shepherd
-Star Trek, definitely; quests are my thing
- Bill Murray (just blogged about him)
- do? (another leading question): you're provocative
- stir fry
- one of mine as pop culture hero: Andy Warhol (he's on my sidebar)
Thanks, Debra. You have a wonderful blog and I appreciate how you take the time to write comments occasionally.

Thalia said...

The thing about your #2 answer is that the church'd crucify you just like the powers-that-be did to that Jesus guy. Though it's a really nice thought. :)

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Yes, Thalia the Perceptive, you're right (*sigh*). Which reminds me of my favourite conspiracy theory -- that the original John Paul (the First), who died so shortly, suddenly and mysteriously after becoming Pope, was really assassinated by Vatican insiders because he was planning to liberalize the rules by opening the priesthood to women and allowing priests to marry.
