A tag, my favorite!
Except not. I don’t tag people, and I only do tags (sometimes) when I’m tagged by one specific person. (It’s you. Thanks.)
- Thank the blogger who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog. Thanks once again, Lemon.
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you. Grudgingly.
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions. No.
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
- Fantasy or sci-fi?
That’s actually hard, because I don’t like either. It would have to be dependent on the book. Mild fantasy is usually pretty enjoyable, but more intense fantasy or sci-fi stories usually end up trying too hard to be unique, and that takes away from the plot and character development, which I prefer to intriguing settings anyway.
- Tragedy or comedy?
Shakespearean or otherwise? Of Shakespeare’s works, I greatly prefer the tragedies, but in terms of movies or life, I prefer comedy.
- Fiction or nonfiction?
Fiction! Unless it’s a book of philosophy and then sometimes I can fall in love.
- Snow or rain?
*stares morosely at the fifteen inches of snow outside* Rain. Because firstly, snow is cold. Secondly, rain is less cold. Thirdly, I tend to be cold when it snows. Wet, gloomy days are also really pretty in my unpopular opinion, and while fresh snow is absolutely gorgeous, it’s more ethereal and doesn’t speak to my soul on deep, raw levels. Also, cold. So rain.
- Orange juice or apple juice?
Definitely apple juice; I honestly don’t like orange juice that much at all.
- Christmas or Easter?
In terms of holiday celebration, Christmas is more fun for me, but in terms of religious meaning and the depth of reflection I usually have, Easter.
- Middle-earth or Narnia?
I don’t like LoTR. Sorry, y’all. Narnia.
- Marvel or DC?
I….have absolutely zero knowledge of either. Marvel is a cooler name than DC, so we’ll go with that.
- Star Wars or Star Trek?
Hard choice; both are annoying at points and fun at others. I’m not crazy about either, but I’ve probably spent more time watching the old Star Trek episodes than watching Star Wars.
- Old movies or new movies?
Old movies! Especially cheesy old Hallmark Christmas movies!
- Old books or new books?
There are some very notable exceptions to this, but even though old books are “classics” and often supposed to be more edifying, I don’t usually find them very readable. My favorite type would be readable old books, but after that, I’d prefer even mediocre new books simply because they’re easier to get lost in, even if they’re not as objectively “good.”
There you go, Lemon, I hope you’re happy about me divulging all my unpopular opinions.
