The… Somewhat Offensive Version of the Sunshine Blogger Award!!!

sunshine blogger

Hello All!

Well, as I said before…. things have been BONKERS lately, and I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled blog posts and visits in September. So sadly, Cozy Sunday (Jane Austen edition) which would have normally gone up today, will need to be postponed.

But…. AWARD POST!!!! Woot woot! Thank you to Drew @the Tattooed Book Geekย for the nomination! And, if you know Drew, you know this won’t be a normal Award post!!

The Tag Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and ask them 11 new questions
  • List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post/or on your blog.

Now, on to the questions!!

  1. What would your spirit animal be?

A platypus, because….. WHAT ARE THEY EVEN?!?


Although, everyone says I’m like I cat. Don’t touch me unless I give you permission. ๐Ÿ˜น


2. What would your theme song be?

Virtue by Ani DiFranco


3. Thereโ€™s a magic doorway that will take you anywhere, to any fantasy world, to any era or just to any different country, where do you choose to go?

I’m going to Woodstock, Baby!!! I would have LOVED to be there! Dirty free love? Great music? Hallucinogens? COUNT ME IN!!


4. What is your favourite type of cake?

…. I actually hate cake.

*watches reader counter dwindle… *

5. What fruit or vegetable would make the best weapon?

I’m always partial to the Zucchini. I mean, it’s hard, it’s club-like…. Oh wait. You said WEAPON! Ah….. I’ll stick with Zucchini.


6. What upcoming book do you wish that you could read right now?

I want the rest of the Afton Morrison series!! (Ya ya, you know I can’t get through an award or tag post without mentioning this series!!)

Check out my reviews on Go Home, Afton and See You Soon Afton!

7. If you could rewrite the ending of any book which book would you choose?

The Phone Book. I mean, save the best for last! So, what does Zwiec have that I don’t?!

8. What would your epitaph read?

“Nicole. She liked to say Fuck…. A Lot.” (Shout of to Raistlin for giving me the idea for this one!!)

9. Who would you love to punch in the face?

Oh man…. The list goes on and on… I mean, I feel like I’m accepting an Oscar for this one

Well, there is, of course Michael Bay. That man has ruined way too many of my childhood franchises.

Then there is half of my customer base…. TAKE A GOD DAMNED SHOWER YOU FILTHY ANIMALS!!

All of the awful parents in the world who should have had to take a test before popping out their 10 children and solving the issue of taking care of them by expecting technology to do the job….. Well, I see that the music is starting to swell indicating they want me off the stage… Why is everyone muttering and shaking their fists?? DO I OFFEND??

10. What is your top worst bit of blogging advice? โ€“ make it as funny as you can! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Alway tell people how crap they are! Really and honestly, nothing motivates people more than telling them that they’re writing is ABSOLUTE GARBAGE!

Visit as many blogs as you can, and always leave comments like “WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??” or, “your opinions make baby Jesus cry…” I find that really gets the creative juices flowing!

11. You are hosting a bookish influenced dinner party, which authors, characters and bloggers do you invite?

I couldn’t even choose!! YOU’RE ALL INVITED!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป I am the hostess with the mostest, so I’d love to have you ALL there!!


Well, I have NO TIME to nominate anyone! So… I nominate ALL OF YOU! BUT, there’s a catch! If I don’t get any ping back’s in the next week from people completing this award in the next week I’M COMING BACK TO ADD SPECIFIC NOMINEES!!

  1. Seriously, what the fuck are you talking about that you say fuck all the time?! I’ve NEVER read that word in any of your fucking blog posts. Sheesh. But the “making baby Jesus cry” comment made me snarf coffee, so good job! Now go play with your zucchini. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿฅ’

    1. Goals for the day? Say fuck. A lot. CHECK. Make someone snarf their coffee? CHECK. Well, guess that’s everything! *rolls over and goes back to sleep*
      Ha ha ha!! I TRY to be a good girl for my blog…. As much as I can!! But, Raistlin has come to the conclusion that Fuck is my favourite word. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ HE’S RIGHT!! Although, now is Klootzak, as he’s been teaching me to swear in Dutch. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

      1. I don’t like chocolates too… Great answers babe…. You are awesome… I loved the way your x factor (some may call it madness) and humor (done may call it weirdness) and intelligence (some may call it eccentricity) shines. If I am hogging someone else’s comment section… I am sorry for the intrusion… But I had to say it

      2. Ha ha!! I give you permission to hog any comment section you like, darlin! You know I love hearing from you! Especially when you’re sticking up for my weirdness. That’s why you’re the bestest. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ


      3. Omg you are weird and I like the same things you do most of them except for the ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฏ so am I weird too? Are we in a different Class than the rest… Don’t worry you will have a separate subcategory hehehe

  2. What? When did I give you that idea of the epitaph? You never say that word…you have never sweared before in your life. This has got to have been a Michel from an alternate dimension that started putting things in your head๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”
    F*ck!! This was hilarious!!! Thanks for the shoutout! And that epitaph: ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    But really so many of the answers for this post were terrific! That worst blogging advice: I would try it for fun just to see what would happen ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ (what do you mean my blog is deleted? Let’s check that…..๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚). Don’t know if a Zucchini would make a good weapon though: Wait why are you looking at me like that, and why is that Zucchini raised above your head. Okay…think it’s time to make a hasty exit…and this comment was probably too long anyway๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    Did I already say: Great post?! Because it was….๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Be careful about that tag though… never know what people might write about you…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Ha ha!!! It was definitely a lot of fun!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And, you’re right…. I’m such an innocent little flower…. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ *bats big innocent sparkling eyes of indeterminate colour*
      Ha ha!! Well, we’ll see what happens when I tag people, because I bet I’ll have to! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. Totally! You are absolutely the totally innocent flower! Thatโ€™s why I just canโ€™t believe that anyone would ever suggest that you write this as your Epitaph….I’m shocked I tell you: shocked!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
        Lol….but you already did tag people by writing this post….๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  3. Sigh, could have put more effort in, what a suck fest, awful, baby jesus would cry at the atrocious crap that is ‘this post’ I mean, I tagged you and you post this, where’s the effort?๐Ÿค” Less booze and more blogging effort!๐Ÿ‘

    I jest! I knew you’d take this just as seriously as I did though I thought I kept the questions quite normal! I should have written you some crazy questions!๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. Well, I WAS going to say that I expected more from your questions… I mean, can you say LAME?!? I KNOW I CAN!!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
      Although, thank you for the “who would you punch question. Seriously, VERY CATHARTIC!! I would recommend everyone really open their hate valve and think about this one! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฒ

      1. Lame, yeah, I can’t disagree with that though don’t hate the playa, hate the game and many aren’t like me and you and don’t like fun, weird, crazy and downright weird questions and would have taken offense if I’d asked weird sh#t.๐Ÿ˜‚

        Damn right! It should be an awesome question but! And I sh#t you not! Someone did the tag and answered that question with no one! They wouldn’t punch anyone!๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  4. I believe English cucumbers make better weapons. See, you can swing them, and they don’t turn mushy as easily as zucchinis after one use. Source: I fought my dad with a cucumber once in a dream and it was very effective.

    1. Yes indeedy, English cucumbers are much stronger and not as fey as the Italian Zucchini. Very good for swiping heads then poking in the eyes before the victim recovers, whereas the zucchini falls apart on impact. Great dream BTW! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. I like the duck-billed platypus

    Because it is anomalous.

    I like the way it raises its family

    Partly birdly, partly mammaly.

    I like its independent attitude.

    Let no one call it a duck-billed platitude.

    (by Ogden Nash)

    I don’t like cake though.

    (by me).

  6. Cake is probably my least favorite desert (unless its in ice cream form.) Platypus’ are adorable and plenty of people are punch worthy these days! Always enjoy your posts and congrats on the Sunshine Blogger Award!

  7. Well, you do follow your rule about making blogging funny, Nicole. This post cracked me up. And Woodstock! Great answer. Can I come too? I was a little too young for that one, but what a trip it would have been. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. This is HANDS DOWN the best award question/answer set I have ever read, in all my time perusing book blogs. I fucking worship you, lady! Well done!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ Can I reserve my spot at your dinner party?? I don’t even need any food, just some of your incredible cocktails pls!!
