Remember Myspace, when we would copy and paste surveys and questionnaires about our personal lives, write in our answers, then tag our friends to do the same? I always enjoyed that. Am I the only one? Nah, I don’t think so. Recently one of the WordPress blogs that I follow on my Reader posted a super fun geeky survey, but it was part of the “Sunshine Blogger Awards.” Now, I wasn’t nominated or anything… but that doesn’t stop me from butting in and participating anyway! But I’ll go ahead and plug Strange Girl Gaming, since she posted it. Check out her blog!
- Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
The questions that were asked:
1. What is your favourite super power?
As was discovered during a Splatfest earlier this year, the best powers to choose from are apparently Flight and Invisibility. I was on Team Invisibility aka Team Creeper. We lost. Guess that means the best super power is clearly Jean Grey’s Phoenix Force from X-Men.
2. What is your favourite fighting game series?
I could be a basic Nintendo fangirl and say Smash Bros. here, but I really liked Soulcalibur II when I was in college. I played that with my friends daily. Cassandra was my favorite.
3. If you could spend a day with your favourite video game character who would it be and why?
OMGOMGOMG can I spend a day petting Pikachu and playing with Pokemon?? Yes?!? Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu is coming out this November! I’ll add the countdown to my blog when the date gets a little closer.
4. Star Wars or Star Trek?
Oooof. I’m more of a fantasy fan than sci-fi. I guess I’ll pick Star Wars since I’ve cosplayed as a Storm Trooper. But it’s not really my bag, baby. *ducks as everyone throws tomatos at me*
5. Who is your favourite starting Pokemon from the original series?
Well… it’s Pikachu. (Technically Pokemon Yellow is still the original series. Neener.) Everyone knows I love Pikachu. Yes, Pika isn’t the best battler but that isn’t the only thing important in life. Being an iconic best friend is important too!! Also, Pikachu is the only Pokemon that I still collect when it comes to merch. I need all the Pika-things.
6. You have to survive the night being hunted by Mike Myers, Jason Vorhees, Pyramid Head or Mileena, who would you survive against?
I’ll pick Mileena… as long as I can have Scorpion with me to help me kick her ass!
7. What do you do to relax?
Surprise – I play video games! But sometimes gaming isn’t relaxing. Especially when you’re stuck on a boss in Octopath Traveler and you ALMOST beat it but then your team got completely obliterated… then you need a break! The truly best way to relax is to do some meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises. Try it now! Take a deep breath in… hold it in for a few seconds… then slowly exhale. Do this a few times and your heart rate will slow and you’ll feel instantly more chill!
8. What is your favourite TV series?
Ahh such a hard question! All time? Or current? I would say for all time, my answer is 24. I loved this show so much and I’m glad I found it again on Amazon Prime. There are so many seasons, so many episodes, and every one is action packed. And Keifer Sutherland is so great as Jack Bauer. Coming in a close second is Lost, but the final season just kills it for me. When it comes to current shows, I’ll say my favorite is Orange is the New Black. I just watched the latest season and I think this show is so good. I love how they are tackling certain issues (no spoilers! lol), and I also love how Piper doesn’t take over the entire plot. There are so many interesting characters!
9. Sci-Fi or Horror?
Horror! I’d much rather feel suspense and shock. Sci-fi can be so over the top and unbelievable that it takes me out of the story. But a psycho murderer on the loose trying to kill everyone? Fear is something everyone can relate to!
10. Where would you love to go on holiday?
TOKYO!! Please please please! Can someone just send me there?? I’ll blog about it I promise!! Haha! I would really love to see the sights in Tokyo, eat amazing food, go shopping, and do lots of touristy things! KUDASAI!!?!?!?
11. What is it you like about blogging?
Blogging is something that I’ve been doing for so long… I can’t imagine what life would be like without it. Being able to share my thoughts, ideas and ramblings with the internet, and random people that I don’t know can comment and interact with my content is such a cool thing. I’ve made some really awesome friends through this blog! Being able to connect through writing and shared interests is so unique and special.
This is when I’m supposed to write 11 questions, nominate people, etc. etc. as per the rules I posted above. But I didn’t follow the rules at the beginning and I’m certainly not going to follow the rules now! Instead of what I’m supposed to do, I’m going to ask that everyone fill out the latest StreetPass Game Show Survey! It’s for the upcoming Retro Game Show at PAX West next month. Unfortunately I won’t be in Seattle for it, but I want to spread the word and help the StreetPass Game Show team get as many survey responses as possible! Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey, and if you’re going to PAX West you won’t want to miss the panel!
