The blogging award season occurs between now and later and takes place around the world, where the majority of important blog awards reside. The origins of such socialist awards are relatively unknown, but we do know that a German or a German lover was involved (see Liebster), as well as versatility, inspiration and sisterhood.
Now, just like I have in the past, I’m going to change up the rules and do my own thang. I’ll choose one question from each awardee and allow everyone to participate in the questions I pose in comments, and slash & burn “paying it forward” so we can all quit stressing over what to wear for the next award show.
// From Kate, “If you were a piece of furniture what would it be?”
OMG. Did you ever read The Human Chair by Japanese writer Edogawa Ranpo? Yeah, wicked. I loved it, therefore, I’d be a chair so I can be all Edgar Allen Poe-like dark and disturbing.
// In honor of Aquilena and her Greek mythology blog, I will share that the only book I ever stole (the only!) from the library (what!) was a children’s book called D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths. I loved it so much, I wanted as my own. Yes, I was a child and yes, I know that’s no excuse.
Sorry, Mililani Library. And I did not take French cooking, that was my brother, who claims no knowledge of the book, but we all know he did it.
// And to thank Corri from 51 stories, I’ll add my own super short superhero story. I helped report a fire when I was in grade school. We were walking home from school when we saw that someone had thoughtlessly lit a tall grass field, it was just getting started, so we ran to the high school and told a teacher.
// From Michelle, “Do you dislike a common food that most people like?”
Yes, ketchup. If it’s on a hamburger and I can’t see it, I don’t mind because the flavor is mixed in with other wonderful flavors like the burger, mayo and mustard. But you will never see me with ketchup and fries.
I saw a horror/sci-fi/I don’t know what it was, film on cable TV when I was a kid and the monsters in the movie were dipping human fingers into their blood and I was forever grossed out. I’m actually gagging a little thinking about it. So, I can’t do it. Fries are, of course, part of daily living, but ketchup is disgusting.
*Parents do not let your young child watch cable TV. I’ve seen way too many jarring/inappropriate shows and there is probably something wrong with me now.
Questions for you, dear readers! Answer them all, or one or two. Up to you. Cheers!
// What kind of good karma do you have? For example, I have great clothing karma. I’m forever getting free clothes.
// How much do you plan for a vacation? Over-plan, barely plan, somewhere in the middle?
// What do you do during a long layover? Help! I need ideas.
