The Reality Blog Award

I want to thank Sofia Siberia for nominating The Eye-Dancers site for a Reality Blog Award!  Please check out Sofia’s great website–it’s just the kind of place you’ll want to get lost and spend some time in.  I am very grateful for the award.  Thanks so much, Sofia!

There are five questions that go along with this award.  So, let’s have at it!

1) If you could change one thing, what would you change?
I would make certain episodes of The Twilight Zone required viewing, and part of the curriculum in public high schools.  There is so much truth and meaning and imagination to be found and discussed in the best episodes of the series–they should be experienced, right alongside with the other classics in the curriculum.

2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?
Well, I would say none.  As nostalgic as I am, I want to look forward, not back.

3) What is one thing that really scares you?
Remarkably, I have never had a cavity in my life.  Not one.  That’s the good news.  The bad?  Because of that, I have a long-standing and deep-rooted fear of the dentist’s drill!

4) What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you will be able to complete it?
Turn The Eye-Dancers into a best seller, of course!  I’m not sure I’ll ever complete it, but I hope people will want to read the book!

5) If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?

I would like to be anyone who has ever played in front of a capacity crowd on Centre Court at Wimbledon and served an ace.  The hush of the crowd beforehand.  The perfect feeling of a well-struck tennis ball, the echo the sound makes on Centre Court.  Watching the ball zip by your opponent, untouched, and then hearing the cheers from the crowd.  What a feeling that would be . . .

 

Now, I would like to nominate the following blogs for the Reality Award.  Please check them out and take a look around these wonderful websites!  They are all rich and diverse sites, with so much to offer.

    Well done. I should have shown “The Twilight Zone” when I taught. Always afraid that it might be too scary. For me, that is.

      True.:) There are some very scary episodes. But . . . there are many that are not scary at all. One of the great things about the show is the variety of the episodes. There are even a few comedic episodes thrown in!

    Mike,
    Loved PEI! Went there because our grandson then age nine wanted to go see where “Anne of Avonlea” lived. Also, love Lucy Maud Montgomery’s writing. It had a positive effect on our grandson’s writing as well! You think Poosie is somthing for a Cocker Spaniel’s name. Well, coincidently, our cockerpoo had a similar name – POOH. His nickname was James.
    Thank you for visiting and liking my site!

      It’s always nice to hear from a fellow PEI traveler! It’s really the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It’s bigger than I thought, too. There are still corners of the Island I haven’t seen, and hope to see in the future!

    Ehem, Mr. Eye. How long can I keep the award before nominating some. I am fairly new in the system and don’t quite know the protocol just yet. Can I keep this in the shelf for at least six months then pass the baton?
