Tropical Feat: The Sunshine Blogger Beach Party!

The Sunshine Blogger Award Comes To Me From Danica, At Living A Beautiful Life

 

“But at night it’s a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on and dance all night
Despite the heat it’ll be alright” – John Sebastian.

 

Come on in! The bliss is just fine. 

In this normally dreary part of our mad, mad world, we’re heading into our third week of a record-breaking heatwave, but the hottest news to light up my Notifications box this week happened to be this:

Thank you, Danica! I am honoured. Please visit her if you’re not already Following her blog – she is indeed very sunshine-y! 

The Sunshine Blogger Award “recognizes bloggers who inspire positivity and joy”

Well, by Jiminy! It’s comforting to know that such a groovy, sunshine-y aim is being maintained here (whilst trying to keep the sand out of the nachos bowl). 

Always enjoy compiling these Awards Posts as it helps spread the love across the blogosphere.

 

What are the rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award?

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you for the award and link to their blog.
  • List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.
  • Answer the 11 Questions asked of you.
  • Write a new list of 11 Questions for your Nominees.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

 

Is everybody alright?! 

VJ Brad, you cry, where are the mighty stompin’ doof-doof-bangers which we have come to expect from you, and will transform this Post into a veritable rave on the sands?

Yay! All in good time, baby! 

There will certainly be another Fantastic Beats Post on its way very soon, but for the moment, with all this humidity, it’s best to just chill out…

Club Tropicana, drinks are free,
Fun and sunshine – there’s enough for everyone.

“Watch the waves break on the bay.
Soft white sands, a blue lagoon,
Cocktail time, a summer‘s tune,
A whole night’s holiday!” – George Michael.

 

Just taking a break from manning the barbecue to answer these:

11 Questions Asked Of Me:

The greatest feeling in the galaxy

“Question EVERYTHING” turned out to be his most inspirational mantra.

What is your favourite song at the moment?

Right now, it’s a track from a CD forever synonymous with that other record-breaking Summer of 2000. Remember slinking away from the beach one day to cool off in a mercifully air-conditioned record store, and, upon hearing this supercool classic reggae compilation, felt compelled to snap it up right there and then:

“Between the eyes of love I call your name
Behind the guarded walls I used to go
Upon a summer wind there’s a certain melody
Takes me back to the place that I know
Down on the beach” – Chris Rea.

Long may it continue…?

Summer loving had me a blast, oh yeah
Summer loving happened so fast,
I met a girl crazy for me,
Met a boy cute as can be,

Summer days drifting away,
To, uh oh, those summer nights

Well-a well-a well-a HUH!”

    • Thanks, Nancy!
      I’m always intrigued at the graphic novels u review – never see them featured on any other site; keep up the good work!
      Yes, I’m fascinated now to read your interesting answers! 🙂
      Bless u

  1. Congratulations on putting together the best Sunshine Blogger Beach Party ever! Photobombing and cake! Archery indeed. I’m with Kim on a post dedicated to your dad’s advice. 🙂

    • Aww, thanks, Danica!
      I knew you would have a fun and sunshine-y time here!
      Photobombing as well as u-know-what – all Bradscribe Parties are unique 😉
      Bless u

  2. Thank you so much for this nomination, and congratulations on the nomination. This post really put me in the mood for summer (and to think that I don’t even like summer…that is pretty awesome😊😊). Great way to start the day! Thanks again😀😀

  3. I would also like to stop photo bombing on accident! Thanks so much for the nomination – I can’t wait to answer your questions soon! 🙂

  4. You are (or were) an archer?!? That’s wild! I don’t know if I’ve ever met anyone before who would classify as “an archer.” I love it! Also I don’t think you should EVER stop photobombing :). It’s too much for for the bomber and it brings a fun surprise for the bombee. Plus, a little Brad in the home photos has to add class and fun! I say bomb-away my friend.

    And thank you for the nomination! I will have to begin mulling over your questions and see what I can come up with…

    • Watching all those fantasy and historical adventure movies as a kid sparked my life-long interest in the longbow
      Afraid there’s no class or fun to be had from photobombing. The bombee just hurls heavy objects and/or abuse at me for ruining their precious Instagram shot – a little Brad is always erased (>_<)
      Your nom is well-deserved, amigo – keep up th good work!
      I look forward to reading your answers! 🙂
      Bless u

      • But, erased or not, BRAD WAS THERE. Plus in the age of cellphone cameras, everyone takes 5,000 pictures of the same shot anyway. If they thought about it, a little bit of Brad in one or two of them would add some nice variety!

        And I’ve always been intrigued by the longbow myself, but I’ve only ever had the chance to fire one (without much success of course) once or twice. I love that you’ve done it!

      • It’s the weirdest stat: Brad must have “appeared” in more photos belonging to strangers than anybody else!
        Firing a bow over my shoulder whilst on a galloping horse – now THAT would be photogenic! 🙂
        Cheers!

  5. Woohoo! These are always fun. 🙂 Here’s my go at the questions:

    What book do you recommend most to others? The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

    What would you like to see on Bradscribe that hasn’t been done here before? More virtual parties! 🙂

    What is your favourite song at the moment? Oh wow, don’t know if I have one right now. I’ve been listening to lots of podcasts on my drives to and from work and have been enjoying those.

    What is the one thing about 21st century life you really cannot dig? People getting into fights on social media 😦

    What is one place you would love to visit? I’d like to go back to Scotland.

    Which comic book character (apart from Black Widow, of course!) deserves his/her own movie? I was going to pick Black Widow. 😉 ha ha I’d love a Cold War era throwback MCU movie starring Black Widow and the Winter Solider, actually.

    Do you believe in the supernatural? Yes

    If you had a time machine, which year/period would you like to visit? I’d like to go into the future 1,000 years, just to see what it was like.

    What is one fascinating thing about you that most people don’t know? My favorite dessert is ice cream, especially mint chocolate chip!

    What shall we do with Marky “Mark” Wahlberg? I don’t know about this one. 😉 ha ha

    Footloose: Is it still the greatest movie in history? Sadly, it never was… 😉 Doesn’t compare to a certain franchise that starts with “Star” and ends with “Wars.” hee hee
