Kreativ Blogger Award in the House

Gorgeous Aussie woman Melissa Craig nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger award. Thanks Melissa! Melissa writes erotica. Check out her delicious book Plentiful Package.

The Kreativ Blogger rules say I must:                                                                                   Thank my nominator, provide a link to her blog, list 7 things readers might find interesting about me, and nominate 7 others

7 things about  me:                                                                                                                              1.I spent a summer backpacking around Europe and got to see some amazing sights.  Of all  the places I visited, walking through the gates of Auschwitz and looking up at the sign “Arbeit Macht Frei” is what stays with me the most.

2.My first celebrity/character crush was Nicholas Lea, who played Krycek in The X-Files. He was quickly replaced by David Boreanaz 🙂 (Angel from Buffy)

3.I studied at NUI Galway and one of the students there the same year as me was Martin Sheen (He played the President in The West Wing). I saw him eating in the cafeteria every day and now I’m kicking myself I never approached him.

4.I have a picture with the half naked cowboy who walks along Times Square when I visited New York.

5.I have three sisters, one older, two younger and one adorable niece. She’ll be two in September.

6.I played Joseph in the Christmas play when I was 5 or 6 (It was an all girls school :)) and I played Little Boy Blue in another school play.  Looking back, I’m blaming my mother for the horrible, short, haircut!

7.Greek Island hopping for two weeks in 2008 remains my favourite holiday.

I think people are tired of me tagging them at this stage, so I’m just going to pass the Kreativ Blogger Award on to five bloggers.

Favourite TV Shows

5) The X – Files

The Truth Is Out There

I can still remember seeing the trailer for this when I was 10 years old and running through the house to tell my Dad who also loves sci-fi and paranormal tv/books.  While the quality of stories dipped after a few years, Fox Mulder & Dana Scully remain my two favourite, fictional FBI agents to this day.

4) Dark Angel

Bip Bip!

Following the trend of kick-ass females, Max’s sharp tongue got her into some trouble in post-Pulse Seattle.  All the cool kids were from Manticore, including Zach, Alec & Joshua.  It only got 2 seasons but Dark Angel rocked and put Jessica Alba firmly on the map.

3) Friends

We Were On A Break

What can I say?  10 years of laughs.

2) Roswell

I AM What I AM

Roswell, NewMexico, home to the Crashdown Cafe, too many alien themed shops and some great characters: Michael, Maria, Liz, Max, Isabel, Alex, Kyle, Sheriff Valenti & even Tess.  There was true love (Liz & Max), some great bickering (Michael & Maria), tragedy (Alex’s untimely departure), icy wit (Isabel), betrayal (Tess) and some wonderful wisdom (Buddha Boy Kyle)

1) Buffy the Vampire Slayer

In every generation there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.

This show stood out from every other tv programme on air at the time.  A highschool girl with superpowers who was smart and self-sufficient, oh and called Buffy?  No way this was ever going to work…

Joss Whedon brought us lots of sarcasm, tongue-in-cheek tv, Buffy, vampires, spooky graveyards, Giles, school principals who got eaten, Willow, vampires with souls, Xander, witches, demons, Angel, vampires without souls, hyenas, Spike, werewolves, Cordelia, Sunnydale, the hellmouth, Dawn, ex-vengeance demons, Anya,  crazy vampires, Drusilla, the Bronze, Faith & much much more.
