The Sunshine Award

Well, I've been tagged by my best friend, Jennifer Major, as a nominee for The Sunshine Award. The rules are to answer Jennifer's eight questions, and to tag eight fellow bloggers with the nomination.

Here are the questions, and the answers...

  1. What's your favorite TV show? - I don't watch TV except to have it on as soothing background for the Inside Dogs. If I can choose an HBO miniseries that I have on disc, it would be Band of Brothers
  2. Have you ever read a book on a friend's recommendation? If so, what was the title, and did you like it? - Yes - The Book of Mormon. I liked it a lot, and gave serious thought to joining the Church of Latter-Day Saints. I ultimately didn't join, because of the "social organization and protocols" that I thought then (and still do) are antithetical to Christianity. Jesus doesn't care what you wear to church.
  3. Favorite Bible verse  - easy, the beginning of Psalm 144: Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.
  4. Least favorite food - undercooked rat
  5. Favorite professional sports team - The All Blacks (NZ rugby)
  6. Favorite part about blogging - developing the discipline required to write a substantive piece every day
  7. Favorite Christmas song, or any song - Favorite Christmas song is "Mary's Boy Child", especially when sung by Kiri Te Kanawa. Favorite song is "This is War" by Thirty Seconds To Mars. I also like some of AC/DC's repertoire..."Highway To Hell", "Hell's Bells", and "Thunderstruck".
  8. Five favorite books - (why not eight?) This is a hard one..."Nanette", by Edwards Park; "House to House", by David Bellavia; "Hornets Over Kuwait", by Jay Stout; "Call To The Winds", by P.G. Taylor; "Fighter Pilot", by Paul Richey; "The Big Show", by Pierre Closterman; "Low Level Hell", by Hugh Mills; and "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind", by Shunryu Suzuki
I don't know enough people in this world well enough to nominate them - it might be presumptuous of me - but I'll invite anyone who reads this to keep it going!
