I Won a Liebster Award!

I was both surprised and delighted to learn that I was nominated for a Liebster Award by fellow blogger Susie Whittenberger (thanks again, Susie!). The Liebster Award, according to The Global Aussie, is an award that is given to bloggers by other bloggers and only exists online (liebster in means favorite in German). Its meant as a way to discover new blogs, connect bloggers and support the blogging community.

 The rules to enter are simple:

  • Link to The Official Rules of the Liebster Award 2018 post in your Liebster Award blog post

  • Create new questions for your nominees to answer (the blogger who asks the most unique and creative questions wins the grand prize)

Enter now through December 25, 2018. The winner will be picked by The Global Aussie on December 31, 2018.

Here are my answers to Susie’s questions:

Besides the bathroom, where do you find inspiration to write?

Whenever I’m hanging out with Avon and Bean. Or driving.

Have you ever handcrafted anything?

Many things! I’m most proud of the ceramic Arnold from the cartoon Hey Arnold pot that I made in my high school ceramics class. I’m not as proud of the extra large storage bin full of craft supplies I’ve never used that I’ve collected over the years.

List of your top five: movies, books and/or albums

Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording)The Wiz, What Do You Do With an Idea?, The Harry Potter series and The Southern Vampire Mysteries

Weirdest gift you have ever given to someone.

I gave my sister a card that said, “A Toast to the Bride and Groom” on her birthday. That’s as far as the weirdness goes. It was a nod to a lyric from the song “Satisfied” on the Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording) soundtrack. Inside the card, I placed two tickets to the musical and wrote, “from your sister, who will be by your side at the show!” I usually gift people exactly what they ask for and I don’t recall anyone asking for anything weird. Outrageous, maybe. But not weird.

Finish this sentence: I secretly wish I could have been…

A Broadway star!

Coffee or Tea? Why?

Tea, hands down. I got the habit from my father and grandmother. I have fond memories of both of them and several other members of our family that include a cup of tea. My family is from Jamaica, which was previously British ruled and probably why we’re all tea drinkers.

Name one thing you could dis-invent.


When the apocalypse comes, how long do you think you’ll last?

Not long at all. I don’t plan to stick around for the apocalypse.

In the last four years, have you ever lost control of your bladder? 

Yes, seconds after I got close enough to the bathroom!

Mango or Papaya?

Mango. Again, Jamaican.
