Blue Skies and Sunshine!

The Mayfields received a gloriously happy award from Violincat of Our Different Paths!  Check them out!  Great writing, great characters, great story!

The award is called the Sunshine Blogger Award!  😀  This is an award for bloggers by bloggers, much like the Liebster Award, but with a cuter name.  🙂  It’s a way to share the love, get some recognition, and give the story you adore reading a bit of the fame you think it deserves.  I love things like these.  I love finding more reading material and getting to know more about my favorite bloggers.  So let’s get started!  😀

Sunshine Blogger Award

Questions for the Fluff Meister!

  1. Do you have any favorite characters in your own stories? Who?
    Yes, yes I do.  For a while it was a tie between Thomas Thompson and Donovan Mayfield.  Now, though, it’s someone else.  Stick around and you’ll meet them later.  😉
  2. What are your favorite genres to read or watch?
    Fantasy and science fiction.  I cut my teeth on Tolkien and Clarke.
  3. Which fictional character do you wish you could be real life friends with?
    Ooohh…that’s a tough one.  There’s like, Hermione, Zuko, Bilbo, Frisk, Rowan, Shane, Bran, SOOO MANY!
  4. Would you rather land the perfect job or find true love?
    Hmmm, as everything stands currently in my life, I’d rather have the perfect job.  I’ve already found, and caught, true love.  😉
  5. Do you cook or bake? If not, would you want to learn how to?
    Ooo, uh, no.  I can make a sandwich!  And some soup if I focus really, REALLY hard on not letting anything burn.  :/
  6. What is your dream career?
    Honestly, I’d prefer being a stay-at-home mom.  I want kids and the time to be with them.  Currently, I’m a scientist at a research institution.  It makes decent money, especially for fresh out of undergraduate.  But I’d prefer kids.
  7. What is the one thing you absolutely can’t live without?
    My partner.  That sounds really cliche, but I don’t know what I’d do without him.  Probably burn my house down trying to make lunch.  XD
  8. Which country do you most want to visit?
    Just to visit?  Australia.  That place is just so different from anywhere else!
  9. Are you a day or a night person?
    Good question.  I think I’m a day person, but I’ve switched around, stretched and compressed my schedule all over the place.  Any students out there can probably understand.  I’m capable of going several days without sleep if need be.  I’m a caffeine-riddled grump during, but I can do it.
  10. Would you want to become famous?
    No.  Fame is NOT something I have any interest in.
  11. What do you like the most about gaming?
    The variety and community.  Gaming is challenging, relaxing, soothing and frustrating!  And, no matter what, there’s always people to talk to about the game.  Society calls gamers anti-social, but I think the gaming community is one of the most varied and accepting.  Other gamers value you for your skills, creativity and input, not just because you’re pretty or rich or a similar skintone.  The Sims community is a very good example of that.  🙂

  9. Cheddar, mozzarella, or muenster?  Naming gouda as the top cheese is also acceptable.  😛

Thanks once again for the nomination, Violincat!  Enjoy the rest of your day, all you magnificent peoples!
