Yes, I know today was supposed to be D in the A B See Photo Challenge. I still need two photos so D is now scheduled for Sunday. I’m honestly quite sorry about that because for some reason people seem to think I know what I’m doing when it comes to photography.
So. Thanks, Matthew from The Little Engine That Couldn’t! I had no idea you even read my blog. Go check out his blog, people. He’s just started it and it’s quite good.

1. What is your favorite color?
2. What is your favorite animal?
3. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?
I like how the assumption is that we’d all prefer to list an alcoholic drink. Anyway, my favorite drink is the hot chocolate served at the restaurant where I work. It’s so chocolatey and there’s whipped cream on top and it is deliciousness in a cup. When I go to work tomorrow, I will stare longingly at the hot chocolate.
4. What is your favorite number?
5. What is your favorite day of the week?
6. What is your favorite flower?
Tiger lily. They’re so pretty.
7. What is your passion?
8. Do you watch television?
A little, but not much. I prefer to read or write in my free time. When I do watch TV, it’s usually The Big Bang Theory.
9. Who is your favorite author?
That would have to be a three-way tie between J.R.R. Tolkien, Bill Bryson, and J.K. Rowling. They’re an unlikely combination. They’re all British and make me grin a ridiculous amount, but from there they get really different. One wrote completely serious high fantasy, one writes humor/travelogues and swears a lot, and one writes about kids at a magical school. It would be interesting if they (magically!) met, because I can see Tolkien & Rowling and Rowling & Bryson liking each other, but Tolkien would be like, “Who is this crazy man writing about fat people in the (American) Midwest, the history of the bathroom, and spilling food on himself in restaurants all across Europe?” about Bill Bryson. I’m getting off-topic. Moving on.
10. Do you like 80s movies?
This required me to do a little research since I wasn’t sure if any of the movies I liked were from the 80s. I like the Indiana Jones movies and they’re from the 80s, apparently.
11. How do you like your eggs?
Scrambled with cut-up peppers and bits of bacon and cheese.
12. When did you discover blogging?
Presumably, shortly before I made this blog.
13. Why do you like to blog?
Because I’m a villain and can use it as the first step in taking over the world! I have 182 minions – I mean, followers – at the moment. Heh heh heh.
This is the Reader Appreciation award, after all, so the following will be people who I know read my blog because they post lovely/interesting/bizarre-yet-cool comments. I know some of these people don’t like blogging awards, but I’m recognizing them anyway.
- Orphu44 at A Mirror Made of Words
- Liam, Head Phil at This Page Intentionally Left Blank
- Miriam Joy at Miriam Joy Writes
- TheMeepingKoala at Lollipops And Rainbows
- Kate at The Magic Violinist
- Mary at Ocean Owl
I keep thinking about my favorite authors meeting each other. I think this will be a blog post someday – but with more than those three authors. Mwahaha!
Also, this is random but I was using Google Image Search just now and out of curiosity searched ‘musings from neville’s navel’. Most of the results are photos of Neville or myself, covers of books I’ve reviewed here, and blog badges. But front and center is that silly Boromir Valentine which isn’t even uploaded to my blog. I feel so stupid now. But it was interesting to see what sort of pictures I have the most of here.
