Sunshine Blogger Award

I’ve been tagged by Laura of Merkitty for the Sunshine Blogger Award (you can read her answers here).

I’m more than happy to take part in this and, I think it’s the first blogger tag I’ve been officially tagged in! Also a great way to get into the swing of things after my break.

So let’s get started.

Sunshine Blogger Award Rules

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog;
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you;
  • Nominate 11 bloggers to receive this award and ask them 11 new questions; and
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog site.

The questions I was asked to answer

What was the last dream/nightmare that you had and you remember?

I had a dream recently where I was on a safari with my sister and two of my friends (male). We were in a dark pink Suzuki jeep with an open top roof, three elephants came up to us and extended their trunks to us (like a hand shake), we shook their trunks and they showered us with water.

If you could make one thing illegal, what would it be?

Homophobia. Although I’m not sure how you’d police that…

What blog post took you the longest to write?

Either my post about moving back in with your parents as an adult (update on that to come) or my post about reflecting on my college years.

You have to buy a pet tomorrow, what is it?

Mexican red knee tarantula.

If you suddenly had £5,000 and you had to spend it.. but you couldn’t put it in the bank, use it for debts, give it to charity, give it to friends or family, or put it towards anything.. what would you buy?

My first thought was a vintage VW campervan but I’m fairly certain £5,000 wouldn’t cover it, so my second idea is to book flights and accommodation to go to New York city.

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen someone do?

Seeing someone turn their eye lids the other way around.

You have to make a musical. What is your musical about or what film do you turn into one?

I think turning one of the Star Wars movies (of all of them) would be great. Just imagine hearing the soundtrack played live! 😍🎤🎵

What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?

Singing Star Wars: The Saga Begins (Weird Al parody of American Pie) live at my 30th birthday party, very drunk. Needless to say it was off key and didn’t go well.

Who are your favourite stand up comedians?

Jimmy Carr, Lee Mack, Russell Howard, Dave Goorman, Sarah Millican.

If a movie was made about your life, what actor/actress would play you and what would the title be?

Amanda Seyfried or Jennifer Lawrence would play me and it would be called ‘Diary of a geeky girl’, or something equally cheesy. Lol.

What is the worst thing you were caught doing as a kid?

My cousin, sister and I snuck into the village hall through an open window so we could play music and dance around in there.

    Oh my, you want a tarantula as a pet? I felt chills down my spine. 😀

    Thankyou for the tag! Aww that dream sounds lovely, I would love to go on a safari some day 🙂 I would be amazing to see wild animals in their natural habitat <3 Tarantulas are awesome, and it's refreshing to see someone listing one as a dream pet VS a small, fluffy animal (not that they are not awesome too!). That eyelid thing is horrid to watch someone do, it makes me want to try it though but I'm hazard prone & so I'd probably poke myself in the eye or something XD Yes! A Star Wars musical would be fabulous! Awesome post lovely 🙂 I'll share my answers very soon! – Sarah x

      Haha, I do love fluffy animals too but I miss having a tarantula. I had one, God, about 10 years ago now! I miss him.

      One of the things of my travel list is to go on a safari at some point. I really love animals.

      Thanks for your comment and I look forward to reading your answers. xx

      Hi Helen, I’m doing well, thank you and yourself? I enjoy tag posts as I think it’s a great way for my readers to get to know me a little nore, but I completely understand why some bloggers don’t like or do them. I’d love to keep in contact through our blogs again. xxx

    Thank you so much for doing this, Kim. I really enjoyed reading your answers.

    Your dream was really cute and pretty tame as far as dreams go. It wasn’t one of those weird ones where you’re like.. erm.. why? I think I’d be quite chuffed dreaming about elephants.

    Seeing someone turn their eyelids inside out is pretty weird! I tried to do that once and failed miserably, it just hurt my eye. I don’t know how people end up with weird skills like that.

    Sounds like you’re a fan of Star Wars. I’ve not seen any of them.. and I keep meaning to one day get on the band wagon of watching them. That’s funny that you were singing off key while drunk though.

    I like Russell Howard and Sarah Millican too, those were good choices.

    Thanks again for doing this and I really hope your nominees answer your questions in return.

      Thanks again for tagging me and sorry it took me so long! I love answering tag questions, so feel free to tag me in more. 😉

      I’m a huge fan of Star Wars, always have been since I was little. My dad’s influence, although he’s more of a Star Trek fan now. It was a great birthday party but yes, full of some embarrassing moments.

      I’ve had some strange dreams too! Even ones where I’ve woken up during them thinking “what the ….!”, but I did like that elephant dream. 🙂 It made me smile when I woke up and thought about it.
