Liebster is German for beloved, favorite or darling. It’s also a blog award – who knew you could get awards for public rambling? Well you can. And I did.
A big thank you very much to squirrelcircus.wordpress.com for thinking of me. You shouldn’t have, but I’m so excited you did. Could it have been pity for my pathetic day yesterday? Maybe. Maybe Liebster really means you-poor-sad-fool-you-need-this-badly. I’ll take that too. All of you should check her blog out – it’s funny, smart and sassy.
Per the “rules” I have to answer the following questions. I love an award that forces me to be even more self focused and self obsessed.
Favorite quote, and why?

One thing about you that people wouldn’t assume by looking at you?
I have a mini obsession with Jay Z. No. Not with Beyoncé. With J. Nuff said.
Would you rather forgive something said about you or verbally lash the person who said it?
I think I would say I forgive – and others would say I lash out. Tomato – potato.

A single favorite book you wouldn’t mind reading twice or thrice. Why?

One person whose death would change you? Why?
One person? There’s a list of people whose death would derail me for all the human reasons that you can imagine.
What’s that which you desire the most from life?
Happiness and safety for the aforementioned Scorpios.
Your favorite word.
