Getting to Know Tilley: A Character Interview


I will ask questions (and comment, occasionally) in bold. Tilley will be in normal. ;) Enjoy!

So, what's your name?
Daisy, don't you know my name?
The readers need to know.
Well, hi. I'm Tilley, Tilley Rosenfield.
What's your occupation?
I'm an unemployed dragoncologist.
Aha, and a Dragoncologist is what exactly?
But, Daisy, you are a dragoncologist-
Readers...
Oh, right... them. Well, dragoncology is the study of dragons and how dragons and man can benefit each other.
Thank you, great description. Now, what's your age?
Eighteen. 
Favorite color?
Navy blue.
How tall are you? How long is your hair?
5'2 and twelve inches.
... 5'2 is your... height, right? and twelve is your hair?
Maybe.
Favorite character besides yourself?
Flip, obviously! He's a dragon.
Besides Flip?
Uh... no comment.
Let's say I made you a love interest. What would he be like?
Nonexistent? 
Nice.
I'm telling you, I'm not a people person!
I think I can see that.  Anyways, favorite song?
Uh.... You haven't introduced music...
From the real world.
Oh, my apologies. Uh... I'm not really into music... however, that song you were listening to made me laugh!
Shake it Off?
That's the one! It's hilarious!
Alright then. Favorite part of your book so far?
The part where... Uh... where you don't torture me?
Oh... that part I haven't written yet... I promise, I'm on it.
I should hope so.
Well, say bye!
Bye!
Give everyone a hug!
No.
High five?
No.
Fist bump?
..no.
Please?
*walks away, shaking head, muttering about dragons being better than people*

Did you enjoy meeting my bothersome wonderful Tilley? She's rather... difficult... She's.. well, she's not a people person, as she said. 
Thank you for all of your responses on the title dilemma! Feel free to give more suggestions.

A Poll!

I was thinking... Caught Daydreaming is a nice name, of course, but perhaps something different would be more fitting for the moniker of this site. Perhaps you guys had wonderful, creative ideas- well, I know you will, as you are all so very creative!

Therefore, I propose the taking of a poll, and whence the month is over, I shall see what the responses were and choose a blog title, hopefully the last time I shall do so!

This is very important to me, as names are Identifiable Objects, and therefore rather coveted.

Here it is!



Thank you much!

-Daisy-

Falling Flowers- A Poem

Leaves of green, the bush stands by the road.
A leaf falls.
Flowers dot the bush, bringing color to the side of the road.
A petal falls.
The sky darkens a little, clouds rolling in.
The rain falls.
The flowers are beaten down, they cannot stand.
A flower falls.
The flower dots the hillside.
A flower falls.
The rain is merciless and unending.
A flower falls.
The ground is shaken by thunder.
Thunder rolls.
Flowers fly about in the wind.
More flowers fall.
A painting in reality.
Flowers fall.
Puddles form on the ground.
Flowers float.
Pink in a world of gray.
Flowers fall.
Tears upon a world in pain,
flowers fall.

1. Because the rain is calming
Hear that pitter-patter? Hear that nice, calming white noise? Yep. The beauty of rainfall.

2. The rain is beautiful
Look at it. It's like crystals falling from Heaven.

3.  The rain washes away
You can almost imagine that it is washing away humanity's messes.

4. It feels great on your skin.
Just stand outside in a tank top in the rain. Feel it pour down your skin.

5. Because with an umbrella, you can pretend to be Mary Poppins.
Because just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, kids.

The Blogger Recognition Award

Has anyone else noticed how unreliable I am with these award things? I'm pretty sure Anika nominated me for an award a while back but uh.... I can't remember. Sorry. And there are probably a few other times I haven't done an award that I am forgetting.... My apologies, everyone.

But anyways, I am doing this one. So, let us begin...

I love Canva yes I do, I love Canva, how about you...

Thank you to Canadian Doll Notebook for nominating me- I love you guys!

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Write a post to show your award
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award
  6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.
I'll check off 1, and I'm doing 2, so that means I'm on step... *counts on fingers* 3!

How did my blog start?
*blinks* *remembers* wait, let's just get in my handy time machine here....

Here we are- 2014.
Look, I'm reading Madi's blog! I'm enthralled. Okay, hear that? That's my mom calling. We're going somewhere, I should put my shoes on and grab my bag. 

Okay, a few minutes later.... Aha, I'm telling her about what I just read on Madi's blog. She's listening. Then those fateful words, the beautiful ones... "You should start a blog."
"Really? Can I?"

She's nodding, she's smiling- this will be educational. I'm smiling, I'm happy- this will be AWESOME.

And thus, my blog, known then as Happy Days With AnonymousA was born. Now I call it Caught Daydreaming. Later I might call it something else- who knows?

Step 4...
Advice.

1. Check your spelling
2. Get a good camera.
Those are two things I didn't do, and now wish I had from the start! DO NOT MAKE MY MISTAKE, YOUNG PADAWANS.

Step 5.... WAIT UP. 15? That is a lot of bloggers, my friends. And most of the ones I list will probably have been nominated already....

Anika Joy
Madi
Manta
Kellyn
Shuffle
Ginnie
Bea
Lydia
MyLittleMegara
Reeths
Loren
Jaclynn
Emma
Katie Grace
Izzy

That is fifteen, isn't it?
Alright, now to follow the last step and tell the people I nominated...

//
Have a great weekend everybody- Yes, yes, I am ordering you all to have a great weekend.


I'm not saying anything, but Lego Batman has beat Batman on the NaNo games thread like, three or four times, and that has to say something about Lego batman. I mean, he's awesome. Does anyone read these?

Oh My Goodness

Hello, everyone! How's your week going?

Well, I feel so stupid right now. But it is kind of funny when you think about it....

I've had my blog for how long? Since... 2014, wasn't it? 
Well, when I first made my blog, one of the FIRST widgets I added was 'Follow by Email'. But until today, I had no clue that I could actually see how many email followers I have.

But I mean really. Don't you think I would have figured this out by now? But better late then never, I guess.

But what's really exciting is how many followers that means I have....

Forty-two followers.




I am stunned. Wow, I mean, this is crazy. There's no way. I'm dreaming, or my calculator is broken, right?

I don't know how to express how thankful I am that there are at least forty-two people who care enough to read my nonsense. Can words express? Can anything I say be adequate?

No, of course not; words cannot gauge it.


What am I giving away, you ask?
Well, you see, since when this blog was originally started it was solely a doll blog (and it has since become an everything under the sun blog), we'll be giving away....




Yes! I am giving away one American Girl bracelet craft kit, as pictured above!

How can you enter? Well, it's so incredibly hard to enter.... I mean, you have to...
Comment below with your name or online name, saying you'd like to enter. And also who referred you, if available.

Oh wait, that's not hard at all, is it?

Now, for extra entries, you can....

  • Post about this giveaway on your blog with the image above
  • Post about this giveaway on Facebook/Other Social Media and forums
  • Tell a friend
  • Comment on another one of my posts
And anytime someone gets referred through you, if they include it in their entry, you will get another entry!

The amount of entries you can have is endless!

PLEASE if you are under 18, have adult permission, as I will need your email and mailing address if you win.

Thank you all again, and may the Force be with you!

p.s. i lost the game.
