"Apollo?" "Sh, I'm incognito. Call me Fred."

Hello, world! I'm...here...let's not push it. Also, I was awarded! Twice! The Liebster Award again! (By the way, can anyone tell me what it means?)

If anyone reads this WHOLE post all the way through you should win something.

 The rules are the same. I have to answer the 11 questions, tell about 11 random things about myself, make up 11 questions, and award 11 people. 

 First off, I was awarded by TAMARAHAYDEN, and RINSKIIJOY. Thank you!!

 Questions now from Tamara.

 1. What is your favourite month of the year?
 That one where I go hiking and save a baby mountain lion who later grows up to think I might make a tasty meal.

 2. What is the number one most played song on your ipod?
 Oh, good question. I don't really know...but I bet it is one of Josh Groban's...

 3. Name 3 writers you admire and tell us why.
 1. Scot Westerfeld. I don't like his mention of evolution in his Leviathan books much, and I'm not crazy about the Uglies series but I do admire him. He took a very creative twist on Steampunk, one I don't think many could have gotten away with, and he created a wonderful world I think many people would love to go to.

 2. (This is hard! I admire so many...) Herge. He kind of did something impossible. Not only did he make a comic into a very exciting story, he did this more then once, and he gave the world a mysterious character we all know next to nothing about yet still love. Oh yes, and he wrote a book in which nothing happens and yet, you still are kept on the edge of your seat.

 3. Philip Reeve, because he wrote an amazing series and was able to add an annoying sister character and still make it where the reader didn't want to throw something at her.

 4. If you were reincarnated as an animal, what would you want to be?
 A worm.

 5. What is one of your favourite quotes?
 Aw, I must just pick one? If you follow me on twitter you know I have a lot of quotes. I will take one from Mr. Scot Westerfeld. "Writer's block? Blow something up...in the story." (It works.)

 6. What chore do you hate doing?
 Feeding my three headed, man eating plant.

 7. If you could throw any kind of party (money is no object) what would it be? And for who?
 A party? With people?! Be sociable!?! 
 Hm, I'd throw a coffee/ tea party for all my blog readers.

 8. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would you stay?
 I am one certain age forever....I am 24, always will be.

 9. If you could have any talent in the whole world, which one would you choose?
 World champion Jax player.

 10. Which superpower would you pick if they were up for grabs?
  Thor's. Hammer skills.

 11. If you had to change your first name, what name would you want?
 Best part of a pen name? I already got to change my first name.

 Now 11 questions from Rinskiijoy.

 1. Sparkle or Shine?
 Me? I'd shine, like one of those blind-you light bulbs.

 2. If you had the chance to joy anywhere on earth, where would it be?
 Mars.

 3.Which is cuter, Penguins or panda bears?
 Worms

 4. What is your favourite movie series?
 Tintin...as soon as it is a series

 5. Without lookin git up, what is Mark Twain's Real name? 
 Samuel Clemins...sorry, I don't know how to spell his last name.

 6. Would you rather live in the city or the country?
 The ocean.

 7. What is your middle name?
 It isn't Lewis

 8. Airplanes or boards?
 Aeroplanes

 9. Do you have a teddy bear?
 Of course! He fights the monsters at night.

 10. Have you ever been to Missouri?
 Is that on Mars?

 11. Where was the last place you met someone new? 
 Someone new?! Like...seeing them...and TALKING!?! RUN AWAY!!! It was on the internet

 And 11 from Hayden

 1. If you could choose any superpower, what would it be?
 Did I do this one before? I want the superpower to be able to brain wash people.

 2. Bows and arrows, swords, or guns?
 Swords. I'm a sword girl. Or bows and arrows. Er, BOW and arrows. I can't shoot two bows at once, sadly.

 3. What is your favourite black and white film?
 Hm...I forget the name but it was from the fellows who made the old Godzilla movies, only it was about an over sized moth. Very cool.

 4. What is something random which freaked you out as a child, even if it wasn't supposed to bbe scary?
 Vacuum cleaners. Seriously. Creepy.

 5. Did you read Dr. Seuss books as a kid? Which one is your favourite?
 His books were ALL I read. I still love Hop on Pop. (Which of you read that and didn't walk away with the secret urge to hop on your pop's belly?)

 6. What is your favourite musical?
 "THESE MEN WHO SEEM TO KNOW MY CRIME WILL SURELY COME A SECOND TIME, ONE DAY MORE. ONE MORE DAY ALL ON MY OWN. WILL WE EVER MEET AGAIN? ONE MORE DAY WITH HIM NOT CARING. ONE MORE DAY BEFORE THE STORM! WILL I FOLLOW WHERE SHE GOES? AT THE BARRICADE OF FREEDOM! SHALL I JOIN MY BROTHERS THERE? AS THE GATES BEGIN TO FALL! DO I STAY AND DO I DARE? WILL YOU TAKE YOUR PLACE WITH ME?" I know, it isn't gates, but I don't remember that that one is.

 7. What is your least favourite book by your favourite author?
 The Lost Hero by Rick Rodian. Because Percy wasn't in it.

 8. If you could steal any movie/ TV character's wardrobe, who would it be?
 Polly from Sky Captain, but with Joe's jacket.

 9. What is your opinion on clowns?
 I've a story about a clown which shows my opinion on them, but I've not time to tell it. Basically, who thought they were funny? Al Capone?

 10. What is one obscure book, movie, or TV show that you recommend?
 Book: Iron Scouts of the Confederacy. Movie: Sky Captain. TV Show: The OLD Avengers TV show with Steed and Mrs. Peel.

11. Oh no! You’re stuck in an elevator when the power goes out. It’s going to be several hours before help comes. Who would you rather be stuck in there with- Mr. Collins or Hyacinth Clare Gibson? 
 I don't know who Hyacinth Clare Gibson is...Oh...I looked her up. NOT HER!!!!!!!!! PLEEEASE NOT HERE!!!!!!!! COLLINS! I TAKE COLLINS! *Hides behind him, cowering in fear*

 Now 11 random facts.

 1. The broccoli in my soup tasted dead.

 2. I don't just shout Allons-y because of Doctor Who

 3. If you want to kidnap me put on a long coat, speak in a British accent, and say, "I'm the Doctor."

 4. I AM Spartacus!

 5. Xavier is a cool name because it uses letters most people don't have in their names.

 6. My brother insists I'm going to end up sitting in coffee shoppes one day, hanging out with modern day hippies, huddled in a corner with my laptop while I write and drink a...whatever those fancy coffees are called. I think he might be right.

 7.  I watch little kid shows, on my own.

 8. I think Josh Groban does this too

 9. No, I do not stalk him

 10. Okay...maybe, but just on the internet. And he posts all of it on his twitter...so it isn't REALLY stalking...

 11. Someone I know needs to have a baby so I can go over and hold him.

 Another 11 (I think I have to do two because two of the tags asked for 11 random facts.)

 1. I found out what my friends are naming their baby, and I dearly hope they don't read my books because...I've a character with the same name...and something not so nice happens to him.

  1. (Who do you tag?)

    Oh my word... My driving instructor today in class was talking about identity theft and he used the name "John Smith" as a random example name. I almost fell off my chair... And then I almost yelled, "Does John Smith like pears??" (in the Doctor's voice) but then I thought better of it. I don't thinnk the other 25 people in my class would be too happy.....

  2. If I met John Smith, it would go something like this: "John Smith? Do you fancy Billie Piper? PLEASE TAKE ME WITH YOU!"

    Hehehe, um... Anna, at "Waltz Through the Forest" may have also tagged you. *whistled nonchalantly*

    Josh Groban! 'Nuff said.

    God bless!

  3. Okay. I'm ready to win something.

    ;) Just kidding (kind of, because if you are giving out prizes, heck, I'm in) because it was all very entertaining and interesting. My nephew's name is Xavier. :D Get better, John!

  6. Save a baby mountain lion... LOL!!!

    Herge! Love Herge. Brilliant, fantastic man.

    Blow something up?! Wow. I have never thought of that. I'll have to remember it for when the monster of writer's block strikes again.

    YES!!! Totally Thor's hammer skills!

    Swords rule!

    YES, YES, YES!!! MY PLACE IS HERE, I FIGHT WITH YOUUUUUUUU!

    So, why else do you shout Allons-y? Or is that top-secret information?

    Black Widow fancies Banner??? Hmmm, I can kinda see it, but I still say she likes Hawkeye more. =) (I love discussing Avengers!)

    I'm with you on the losing pens syndrome! I'm convinced Loki takes them. =)

    LOVED reading this post, Jack!!! But, I too, am wondering who you tagged?

  7. I survived!
    Why worms?
    Also, I LOVE that quote by Westerfeld. It's my favorite as well xD
    I watch little kid shows all on my own too...I have a colouring book for one in my room even xD

  8. Congratulation on the award! Have a nice day (I love the 11 facts about yourself... and I was only slightly surprised to find out you owned a 3-headed plant.)

    If I met someone named John Smith I'd be like "omgosh is he the Doctor??" Then I'd search about for a blue police call box that's been hidden away. I might also make inquiries about a Rose Tyler or Martha Jones. If I discovered one or the other, I would then ask present John Smith "Are you a doctor??" Or something of the type :)
    God Bless

  10. My name's not Rick, but I would have been named Richard if I had been a boy ... and it's possible that I would have obtained Rick as a nickname ...
