Super Sweet Blogging Award

I've been nominated for the  Super Sweet Blogging Award by Cathy Russell, (@ganymeder), one of my dear writing pals. Since I'm much closer to the prototypical angsty, bitter, cynical writer than I am to the prototypcial sunshine and rainbows writer, I'm going to regard this nomination as an expression of Cathy's deep understanding of metacomprehensive autoreflection and faith in human redemption. That, and her good taste.

Per the rules, I’m supposed to:

1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated me.
2. Answer five Super Sweet questions.
3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in my blog post.
4. Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other bloggers.
5. Notify your nominees on their blog.

The 5 Super Sweet Questions:

Cookies or Cake?
Cake. Yellow cake, to be precise. You can't build a nuclear reactor with cookies.

Chocolate or Vanilla?
White chocolate. That way, I get both!

Favorite Sweet Treat?
Zero candy bars. See "white chocolate", above.

When do you crave sweet things the most?
When I'm feeling stressed out, i.e. all the time. Fortunately, the cravings are dulled by alcohol.

Sweet Nick Name?
Well, yes, "Nick" is a pretty sweet name, but my parents named me Anthony. Go figure. The best I can do for a nickname is Tony. For a while, a lot of people called me OhChristLookOutHereComesTony, but the internal capitalization made it trip up the spell check in the FBI database. Plus, I don't live in that city anymore. Plus plus, those people are all dead now.

Now, I'm supposed to nominate some new winners. Like Cathy, I'm going to break the rules and pick a number other than 13. I'll do five:

And the nominees are…
1. Tim VanSant (@TimVanSant)
2. Marc Nash (@21stCscribe)
3. Larry Kollar (@FARfetched58)
4. Helen Howell (@Helenscribbles)
3. Jack Holt (@JackkHolt)

Have fun, guys!

  1. When I'm really craving it, nothing hits the spot like white chocolate. Sweet choice, Tony!

  2. Wait, you have the plans for building a nuclear reactor with cake? I've been looking all over for those!

    BTW, I assume you know that white chocolate does not contain either vanilla or chocolate and you were just being funny. But when it follows the nuclear reactor -- which is totally true -- some readers may be confused.
