The Sunshine Blogger Award!


 Sullivan McPig nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award.

The Sunshine Blogger Award is a sort of electronic chain letter (for those who are old enough to remember when communication by mail required stamps) and is given to those who are inspiring and bring sunshine into the lives of their readers and fellow bloggers through their blogspace and/or their social media. 

The Rules
The Sunshine Blogger Award does not operate in an atmosphere of chaos, ergo there are rules as follows:
- Name drop and link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
- Answer the eleven questions from the blogger who nominated you.
- Nominate up to eleven wonderful bloggers and write (or borrow/steal) eleven questions for them to answer.

Sullivan's questions are
1. What is your favorite scary movie?
Tough one to answer.  Boston Strangler with Tony Curtis is a favourite but not super dooper scary. Footsteps in the Fog with Stewart Granger is a wonderful black & white Sherlock Holmes/Jack the Ripper style twist on a twist on a twist movie too.  But I still haven't watched Nosferatu yet either.
2. Zombies or Vampires?
Definitely Vampires!!
3. What movie or book do you turn to if you want to be cheered up?
The Tough Guys (movie) with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas.  It's hilarious!!!
4. If you could be an animal for a day, what animal would you want to be?
What's wrong wiv being a mouse?
5. There's a hippo chewing on your electrical wiring. What do you do?
Turn the power off!  Wouldn't want Hippo to get Mouth Burn......
6. What's the scariest thing you ever did?
I rode on an air o'plane a couple of times and Andrea jumped out of one with a parachute once.
7. Would you rather be king/queen or the power behind the throne?
The power behind the throne.  That way I can make all the decisions but the king or queen gets the shit for.
8. You suddenly turned into a T-Rex. What's the first thing you're going to do?
9. Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Trek.
10. If you could star in a movie, what kind of movie would you want to be in?
I'd want to be in a 1940s or 1950s black & white "Golden Age" movie where men were Tony Curtis, John Wayne or Stewart Granger and women were Maureen O'hara, Rita Hayworth or Lauren Bacall.  And the title song was sung by Frank Sinatra and Liza Minelli.  You know, REAL movies.....
11. What would be the title of your autobiography? 
The Big Squeak

My questions are
1.  You borrow the Tardis and can go to any town, any country, any time period.  Where do you go and what time period is it?
2.  During your travels on the Tardis, you board the Mary Celeste on its' final voyage before it's mysteriously abandoned.  Would you tell?!
3.  Why (not)?
4.  After discovering what happened, you then travel to visit your favourite historical person (royalty/artist/musician/author/politician/whoever)  Who is it?
5.  After chilling with them for a while, you decide to investigate another mystery in another time period.  Which one would it be? 
6.  Finally, you decide to retire to a Royal Court anywhere in the world, any time period.  Which one?
7.  You're visiting London for the first time.  Get around by bus or underground?
8.  Starsky and Hutch or Cagney and Lacey?
9.  You win the Presidential/General Election and rule your country.  What's the first rule you make?
10. Regular Navy or Pirate ship?
11.  You buy an old locked wooden box from an estate sale/yard sale/boot sale that looks old and dusty and when you get it home, you find a key stuck to the bottom.  You open the box and inside is.......

As for nominating:
I'm bad at nominating.
I'm going to put some names down here of people who I think are inspiring and bring sunshine into the lives of their readers and fellow bloggers, if you see your name and feel like answering my questions: go ahead, but if you don't want to, you don't have to.  But if you feel like answering the questions anyway, please do, and accept the Sunshine Blogger award anyway!!!!!
