Nominations n All

Well. Thanks to Dadgitated (who nominated me for the Liebster award) I am doing my second post in one week. This is a record, seeing that I have only been able to muster 1 post every other week or so. Oh, the pressure……

liebster2

Let me just be clear. I do not do things like this – I like to be incognito, fly under the radar, yadayada, because then it means I have no pressure to perform (you will also notice this from the amateurish way I am doing this particular post).

But, I have never been nominated for anything. Ever. This will be a first for me. And because (like any other woman) I respond to flattery, I have decided to do this. So in short: thanks Dadgitated!!!

So what am I supposed to do….first I should post eleven random facts about myself :

  1. I don’t like drawing attention to myself
  2. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would end up where I am today
  3. I wish I had better hair
  4. As a teenager I prayed every night for many moons that God would make me at least 10 cm’s taller. By the age of 22 I realized it was not going to happen.
  5. I believe in luck, but not coincidences. There is a reason why things happen.
  6. I wish I was funnier, maybe I would have more friends
  7. I’ve always wanted to be an actor – to follow in my father’s footsteps. But soon realized I had to write my own script
  8. I believe there IS intelligent life out there
  9. I am running out of things to say. Can you tell? I’ve never had a great imagination
  10. I don’t understand the fuss about big boobs – I have them and they are just a schlep.
  11. I am capable of killing a cactus. Put that in your pipe and smoke it

Once I have managed to complete this first hurdle, I have to answer the 11 questions posed by the person who nominated me. Here goes:

  1. What’s your favorite dish? Prawn curry with roti
  2. If you could be any animal for a day what would it be and why? Cougar. Power, speed, beauty, young men.
  3. What made you want to start blogging? I needed somewhere to express my crazy feelings and ideas without being judged
  4. What will be your weapon of choice be in the up coming zombie apocalypse? Sword. I love that random swishing & shwooshing & chopping stuff. And I like Conan the Barbarian, see?
  5. If you fly fish what’s your favorite fly and if you don’t fly fish (or fish at all) why?  I don’t have the patience to stand around and wait for things to bite
  6. What’s your favorite body of water? The Indian Ocean
  7. What Star Wars character would you be? Darth Vader. Duh.
  8. Dog, cat or other? Other
  9. Fill in the blank- Your momma so dumb…. she forgot she gave birth to you (I told you I wasn’t creative)
  10. If you had to lose one of your five senses which one would it be? Wow, this is a bummer, unlike other people, I cannot live without any of these. Taste I guess.
  11. If you could meet any famous person, alive or dead, who would it be? Bill Clinton

Then off to the next hurdle – nominate 11 other bloggers for this award. Boy, was this tough – since I have not been so active, it took me an hour to find blogs to nominate. Thanks again Dadgitated for making me work so hard on a Saturday

I apologise for only having 7, but hell, what is a girl supposed to do when she’s not getting around the way she should?

The blogs I have nominated for this award:

  1. MindaWebber
  2. Unfiltered
  3. Arabb Geek
  4. Virulent Probity
  5. Lazy & Ambitious
  6. Rochelle Suri
  7. FootsyinSpain

Now, for the grand finale — tadah!!

These guys have to answer 11 questions of my choosing.  I really put (some) time and effort into this, as I didn’t want to ask you what everyone else was asking out there (I have to be different, see?):

  1. Boobs or bums?
  2. If you could be anything in this life, what would it be?
  3. Which actor inspires you and why?
  4. Do you think you are funny?
  5. Is it important for you to win awards?
  6. Do you believe in reincarnation?
  7. Even if you didn’t (points at 7), what would you want to come back as?
  8. Do you believe in true love?
  9. Have you ever committed a crime?
  10. Would you ever want to write a memoir about your life?
  11. Are you in menopause? (if yes, pls inbox me for tips)

Have fun!!! 🙂
