In December, A Geeky Gal was nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award by Amelia at A Girl & Her Anime! Her blog is chock full of reviews for anime, anime movies, drams, and more! Don’t forget to nominate your favorites (anime, manga, games, etc.) in her AGAHA Awards. Thanks again Amelia for the nomination. It’s very much appreciated! And I apologize for taking so long to post this. I answered them on December 10th!

- Answer the questions of the one who nominated you.
- Nominate 7-10 bloggers.

What’s your favorite food? Potatoes: chips, fries, mash, baked, etc. Chips are one of my biggest vices, unfortunately. As of a month or so ago, I have stopped buying them for our house. I still eat them if they are something I want when I go out to eat, but otherwise, I try to keep the chips to a minimum so I can meet my nutrition and fitness goals.
What would be the ultimate gift to give you? A trip to Disney World! Alec and I went in January 2019 for our honeymoon and had the best time. We didn’t get to see and do everything so we’re looking forward to going back soon. We’re crossing our fingers for a January 2021 trip, but we’ll have to see as we’re planning a trip in Ireland in 2020.
Name three characters you’d love to spend the holidays with and explain why. The Doctor (Doctor Who), Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket), and Baby Yoda (The Mandalorian). So if you aren’t aware, Doctor Who usually has a Christmas special every year and I absolutely love them. I’m just imagining getting swept away in the TARDIS on Christmas Eve to a new adventure. Tohru is literally one of the sweetest anime girls ever. I really hope her optimism and cooking skills can rub off on me during a holiday dinner. Baby Yoda may be, well, a baby, but he’s so freaking cute! Can we all wear matching sweaters and take a family picture for holiday cards, please?
What’s your opinion on snow? Do you like it? Do you not like it? I love snow. I lived in Alabama for 23 years where we rarely got snow, and if we did, it was very little and melted by 10AM. I moved to Missouri about 4 years ago and had my very first real snow. It was glorious, beautiful, and felt like a real Winter Wonderland… What comes with the snow? Ice. I hate ice! If you live in an area that gets ice and snow, you get it.
Tell us about a fond memory from the holiday period. One Christmas, after I had moved to Missouri with the help of my family, I was able to gift my parents a vacation to Branson, MO for a second honeymoon. It wasn’t as much as I really wanted to give, but seeing my mom’s face when she opened her gift and realized what it was made my entire year. I really hope I can do that again for them soon.
If you could collaborate with an artist at karaoke, what classic Christmas song would you sing and who would it be with? If I could sing with anyone, I’d love for it to be with Garbage’s Shirley Manson. We would totally sing ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey.
What are your plans this holiday period? We will be traveling to see family and friends! It really sucks being on our own in STL during the holidays as my family is in Alabama and Alec’s family is in Ireland, but it makes spending time with them that much more special.
