I've Been Awarded!

Joanna of The Squirrel's Diary nominated me for the Liebster Award!  Thank you very much, m'dear! 
Here are her questions:
1. Favorite book of the Bible?
Hmmm...I think that would have to be Psalms.  It has a verse for everything.
2. Favorite part of Christmas?

Well, aside from the fact that it's a celebration of Jesus' birth, I really love the present-opening we do on Christmas Eve/Christmas morning.  It's such delightful anticipation. :D  I also like Christmas carols, and being able to look out at my neighborhood all night and seeing it all glittery with Christmas lights.
3. Milk or dark chocolate?

Milk chocolate, probably.  Dark chocolate can sometimes be a bit much, but milk chocolate is just right. (I also like white chocolate.  Sorry.)
4. Least favorite movie and why?

Haha...all of a sudden I can't think of a single movie that I really don't like.  Even the movies that made a hash out of the books (Eragon, for example) are still good in themselves...OH.  
Pride and Prejudice (2005).  It wasn't very accurate to the book, and I didn't think it was a good movie, either. Sorry, all you P&P05 fans. :)
5. Favorite actor/actress?

Tom Hiddleston for actor, maybe?  And...I don't know about actress.  I don't really "do" actors as much as I do characters. ;)
6. Ketchup or mustard?

Mustard.  Indubitably.
7. Ever been outside the US?

Sadly, nope.  It's on my bucket list, though! ;)
8. Dogs or cats?

Ehmmm...cats, I think.  I'm actually allergic to cats, but I still like them; they're so unpredictable. :D
9. Least favorite food?

Coleslaw.  *shudders
10. Favorite beauty product?

Well, I don't really use beauty products--I don't wear makeup or do much with my hair--, so...I'm going to have to pass on this one.

And I can't think of very anybody who hasn't been nominated yet, so...if you're wearing purple of any kind, consider yourself tagged. ;)

Ah, well, I'm a huge fan of P&P '05, but there's no point in arguing, because I like 95, too. (But, seriously, it isn't as bad as y'all make it out to be. ;-) )

I figured the beauty product question might be hard. I don't use them either, except for a little random mascara. :)

FINALLY getting a chance to sit down and comment!! :-)
~Yes, Psalms! I'm reading it right now, and it's so amazing. So many relatable verses. I mean, not like the other books aren't relatable...
~YES YES CHRISTMAS. Oooh, ooh, by the way, is the Sherlock special for Christmas 2014 or 2015???? I thought it was for 2015 but people are talking about it like it's for this year (please, please, please...)
~Did someone say... CHOCOLATE...
~Heehee, dislike P&P05 all you like. We still have Sherlock in common (but if you don't like Sherlock, you can tell me goodbye... ;-))
~OH MY WORD TOM HIDDLESTON... I watched some interviews with him a few weeks ago and I am in loooove... kidding, kidding. Have you seen the Cookie Monster cookie thing? "I think this would be a good lesson delayed gratification." Oh the cuteness...
~Yeah, mustard for me too. Any time.
~Yes, it's a big dream to go to Scotland someday. And Britain in general. :-)
~Yes, a cat. Cats are cuuuute... well, kittens are at least. :-p
~Hmm, coleslaw. Is it because it's cold, or is it the sauce? I don't like different kinds with wierd sauces.
~Yeah, I would say... shampoo. Haha. ;-)
Have you been enjoying Sherlock? :-) (Oh wait, of course you have. Everyone does :-p)

Miss Elliot said...

Oh my, I just realized I was wearing purple (in the flowers on my dress). So perhaps I'll do this tag when I get time! :-)

Hello there :)
I know this is kinda unrelated...*awkward cough*...but I really love your Hobbit/LOTR dedicated page on Pinterest. Being a humongous fan I very much appreciate seeing such Hobbity pins pop up on my page. Thank you!

Miss Jane Bennet said...

Hahaha...well, I agree that it isn't *that* bad--but on the whole my impression of it is "meh". I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. ;)

Miss Elliot,
Ooh, I should dearly like to read your answers--assuming, of course, that you haven't already posted them and I've missed it. That's been happening to me a lot lately. :P
Ummm...I don't know. I thought it was for 2014, but all the articles I've read of it lately say it's for 2015 and they're just started filming. So I guess it's 2015. Too bad, right?
Hahahaha, I doubt I'm going to abandon Sherlock anytime soon. ;-) I stiiiill haven't seen anything beyond "The Hounds of Baskerville", but I'm holding onto the memories. :D
Yes. "The problem with kittens is...they grow up to be cats." :D (Have you read Henry Huggins?)
HAHAHAHAHAHA. Indeeeed. (About the shampoo, I mean. ;))

Haha, I'm very glad that you're enjoying it--I quite like knowing I have a big and ever-growing collection of Tolkien pins. :D

Miss Elliot said...

Nope, I haven't posted my answers yet. It'll take a few days for that to be up, heheh.
Aww man. 2015. Well, just one year more! When I first got into Sherlock it was one year and four months or something. Heehee.
WHAT. YOU HAVE NOT SEEN REICHENBACH OR EMPTY HEARSE OR SIGN OF THREE OR HIS LAST VOW. YOU MUST SEE THEMMMM.... Oh my word. You HAVE to watch more. But do you know the spoilers? Oh, I can't wait for you to meet Mary Morstan-Watson. You will loooove her, I know. And you will cry, I promise. I bawled through the whole last half of Reichenbach. Well, that might have been because I was really stressed (it was the night after my aunt's wedding...) because the second time I watched it I only cried after the actual jump. Oh, did you watch any of Scandal? I watched it on and just skipped The Scene. But I didn't really like it - it was too wierd with Irene. But I didn't want to miss the whole episode and I didn't know the full extent of the Questionable Content, heh. But it has some good stuff too.
Yes, I've read Henry Huggins!!! A family favorite. :-)
