Beautiful Blogger and Reader Appreciation Awards

The very lovely Kat tagged me with 2 blog awards: the Beautiful Blogger Award and Reader Appreciation Award. Thanks Kat!

The rules say I'm supposed to tell you 7 random things about myself. Kind of like Kat's TMI Monday, so I'll put it up now.

  1. Everything I write will be in some way influenced by Sailor Moon. That show got to me right around age 11 and implanted itself in my mind and it will never, ever come out.
  2. I do not understand what it would be like to be straight or gay. It's like asking me to forever choose between cheesecake and chocolate. How could I ever choose????? (I'm married so in a sense I've limited myself, but it's not to men, it's to one person who I love who happens to incidentally be a man, which is a different concept, to me. But my brain still works the same way. And I still enjoy writing f/f romances. ;) )
  3. Japanese: I have lived in Japan twice and been there four times. I can watch most anime without subtitles, it generally has to have a lot of jargon or business lingo for me to need the subs. I sing karaoke both in English and in Japanese.
  4. I love to draw. I have had two different webcomics, but they are SO time consuming that I always quit. I often draw pictures of my friends or their characters.
  5. As my blog title says, coffee and music are my biggest source of fuel for writing, I have difficulty writing if I lose access to either one.
  6. I play the bass in an amateur rock band. We write our own songs, as well as practice with covers of things as widely ranging as "Dreams" by the Cranberries, "One more soul to the call" from Silent Hill, and "The Royal We" by Silversun Pickups. We are planning on playing a short set list at the Halloween party this year. Our first performance in front of more than 2 people. o_o
  7. I played the violin for years in school and I am self teaching myself to play the electric cello.
Tagging people with these awards! They are:
Have fun!


  1. See, how else would I find out all these awesome things about you?? <3

    1. Bahaha I think you already knew a lot of these ;)

  2. Aww, thanks! :) I will try to do my seven sometime this week.

    Regarding 3: My husband lived in Japan three separate times, though he doesn't speak a whole lot of Japanese (even though we met in a Japanese class in college). We still watch Dragonball Z together because he grew up watching it there.

    Regarding 4: That sounds like fun! It's really interesting to see how other people interpret characters visually.

    1. Yay :)

      Cool :) I did watch some Dragonball Z too, I still have a Vegeta wall scroll packed up in a box somewhere ahaha

      Yeah! I love seeing fan art of my characters/stuff that I like too.

    2. Ah, Vegeta. Totally my favorite.
