The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Hello and good morning everybody. (Good afternoon and good evening to those far away!)

Today, a month and a half on from being nominated, I’m actually going to do the award thingamajig. So here goes.


Obviously, thank you to Aimee for nominating me; and a huge apology for taking my sweet time about it LOL. Go and read her blog if you haven’t already; it’s filled with all things Disney, which is obviously fantastic for a Disney fan such as myself. But yes, she’s super cool and awesome and if you haven’t read her blog already then what are you actually doing?

Here are the rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their site.
  2. Put the award logo on your blog.
  3. Answer the ten questions you were given.
  4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Nominate ten other blogs.

Because I like to talk, I’ll do the first three, but I don’t really have anyone to nominate, since I haven’t been too hot on the blogging sites recently, and I’ve barely had enough time to write my own blog let alone read other peoples. But anyways! I shall put the award logo on my blog shortly, once I have figured out how to actually do it! However, just because I love asking questions, I’m going to make up ten new questions and you can comment your answers in the comments I suppose. Would love to hear from anybody LOL. Right so my questions:

What is your go-to feel good song?

You know what, I’m not the biggest music person; the majority of music I listen to is Classical, Gospel or Disney, so I don’t have a wide range of songs, per se. Okay, I have different go-to feel good songs based on my mood. My Classical one is ‘Liebestraum’ by Lizst. I love that song so much! (Look at me, even including the links for you guys!) My Gospel one is ‘He’s Not On His Knees Yet’ by CeCe Winans; I don’t have a Disney one really because every Disney song is my feel good one. (I probably didn’t actually answer the question but AH WELL)

What book are you going to read next?

Okay, so I REALLY want to read a Spanish book called “Como Agua Para Chocolate”, which translates into “Like Water For Chocolate”. I just really want to push myself and read a book in another language. So that’s on the list. Other than that, I don’t have anything really lined up to be honest.

Bookmarks, or folding the pages?

Folding the pages. I’m so terrible, I used to use bookmarks but when they’d fall out it stressed me out. So I dog-ear. I’m ashamed to admit it. Susanna would be so disappointed in me if she heard I was still doing it. I’m sorry Sue.

Paperback, hardback or digital?

Paperback without a doubt. Hardbacks are beautiful but they’re too… rigid? And they’re not the easiest to carry around. Like when you’re going on trips and you can’t decide which book to bring so you bring all 8 of the options… you can’t bring all 8 if they’re hardbacks. Digital is very practical when you are in the aforementioned situation and have like 103 options, but it doesn’t effectively capture the essence of book-reading. Also, paperbacks you can flick and fan to smell them when they’re new. 🙂

Who is your hero? Why?

I hate this question because people always ask me this but I really don’t have one; either that or I have too many to choose from. I’m going to take liberties and assume that I can choose anyone, whether literary, fictional or dead. Argh! I really can’t think of one person. Okay, I’m going to cheat the system. Here are my heroes. Here are some more. Here are even more.

What is your dream job?

Once again, I have a few options. One dream job is to be a housewife and stay at home and raise kids as I write my life away at my laptop, and write books and blog and write journals etc. etc. Another dream job is to travel abroad to South America and to be a Human Rights Lawyer and just… lawyer… while in South America. (Because I really love the language. As in Spanish). Another dream is to go to South America and become a teacher and teach kids and be a missionary too. Yay, lots of dreams. Maybe I’ll get the chance to do more than one.

Is the glass half full, or half empty?

Half-full. I’m a very optimistic person. (Banksy, I can almost hear your outcry against the digital screen; YES I may whine at everything, but I’m always very smiley… Except when I’m in a bad mood.)

What’s your dream holiday?

Ooooooooooooooooookay, my mind is going crazy right now. My dream holiday is going to Disneyworld Florida (I can’t go to a Disneyland; after experiencing DIsneyworld, a ‘land’ simply isn’t adequate enough.) and spending like three weeks there, and just being with squad and having so much fun and lots of banter, and then going to Florida beaches and chilling in the resorts and stuff and reading next to the sea. WHOA. Can imagine it now.

If you could be trapped in a TV show for a day, which would you pick and why?

Well, I barely watch TV so I’m going to say ‘Barbie: Life In the Dreamhouse’ (let’s pretend that it’s a legit TV program) because I very much dislike Barbie, like genuinely, she is one of the fakest people I have ever seen on TV. (I know she’s plastic, but everyone else is pretty decent). She just thinks she rules everything – which you DON’T Barbara Milicent, because I am the Empress – and has everyone at her beck and call. Quite frankly, Ken could do better.

What’s your favourite colour?

What a lovely and uncomplicated question. I don’t have one, is my answer. I don’t discriminate. You know what, I don’t even see colour, because we all bleed red. (I know that wasn’t what the question was asking, I’m just trying my best to be difficult).

So that’s it from me. Here are my 10 questions that you can answer one, some or all of in my comments:

  1. If you could live in any book, which one and why?
  2. You are only allowed to read one book (or watch one TV program for those of you who have never had the pleasure of reading a book cover to cover) for the rest of your life. Which one is it?
  3. What is your favourite quote? Who said it? Why do you think they said it? What does it mean? Can you write me a ten-page essay on the meaning and context of it… I’m joking just answer the first question.
  4. Android or Apple?
  5. You have been given a time-machine and you can go back to any one era. Which one do you choose? Why? What do you do there?
  6. The item you have which holds most sentimental value for you is…?
  7. What’s your favourite movie?
  8. How strong was Henry VII’s claim to the throne? Was it weak? Was it strong? Back up your point with key evidence.
  9. Okay, ignore that last one unless you’re doing A Level History on Tudor England. If money was no object, what job would you do?
  10. You can speak one other language, other than English. Which one do you choose and why?

Strictly speaking, I realise that that was only technically 9 questions but AH well, #DisregardTheSystem right? (Also, I really like those questions, I really want to answer them myself!)

Love you all and have fun today/tonight,

Empress Rianna

  1. 1). We’ll say American Gods, because I read that recently and quite enjoyed it. Alternatively, Skulduggery Pleasant tends to be my go to answer.

    2). As much as I love books, I’d choose a TV program – because there’s more hours of it, primarily, and I’d get sick of reading the same book over and over again. So it’s a TV show, and more specifically, it’s Doctor Who, because there’s a hell of a lot of it, and also, I love it.

    3). I am quite fond of “Destiny is for people too lazy to create alternate timelines”, though I couldn’t tell you who first said it or where it comes from. Also, I quite like “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and sometimes it is necessary to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye”, which is a quote from Miss Piggy.

    4). Android.

    5). To visit? I mean, I’d probably got to the 1960s, and save the missing episodes of Doctor Who. That, or 1920s Venice, to pay for Hitler to go to art school. (It may or may not have been Venice.)

    6). Probably a painting that a friend gave to me.

    7). I am quite fond of About Time, which is a Richard Curtis movie. Basil of Baker Street is pretty good too, as is Edge of Tomorrow.

    8). I feel like it was a reasonably strong claim? I mean, he was a distant relative of some sort, which counts in his favour, but I suppose there were certainly others who would take precedence. In the end Henry won the battle, which is all that really matters.

    9). Well, probably it’d be “sitting around doing nothing”. But that’s not a job. I’d write, most likely.

    10). German. I know some already, but fluency would be nice. (Or Klingon. Or! Italian.)
