Awards and Accolades!

Okay.  If any of you knew me IRL and went to my notes in Facebook, you would see that I have never answered the ABCs of me, or any of that stuff.  Mostly because I think it's a mining expedition for identity theft.  And even the questions that my fellow blogger, Chemgirljaime, answered (your porn star name) also bordered on identity theft to promote my point.  But, I have decided to set aside my curmudgeon ways for one brief moment because none of her questions would promote identity theft, and even if they did, you don't know my identity, so it would be harder for you to steal it anyway.  None of them give up my identity... (Jenga and all that).

So there's this thing going around bloggers called the Liebster Award (and I just naturally think Lobster award in my head when I read it, and wonder where the butter sauce is... probably insulting dear Mr. or Ms. Liebster for whom it was named...).  And I apologize because I don't think Jaime is the first person to award it (or something like it to me), but she's persistent, and still believes in the good in the world and in other people - or at least me - and I don't have the heart to disillusion her at THIS moment in time.  Y'know the excited puppy who just wants you to play ball with them... :)  So, I'll play ball.  I won't tell her how many hours Chinese kids had to work their fingers to the bone for pennies an hour to make the ball she wants to play with.  I'll be nicer than that, and play along, instead. 


So, like a chain letter, you're supposed to choose other victims folks to award it to, and your own set of questions to answer for them.  Even my friend acknowledges it is Blog Fodder in her post. 

If someone really wants to be awarded the Liebster Award, e-mail me, and I'll fix the contest with the judges, and make sure you have an award of your very own. 

If not.. well...

1. If you had the choice to know when you were going to die or not to know, what would you choose?  I don't need to know when I'll die.  It will happen when it will happen.  Knowing about it doesn't change that.  Although, separately, for an interesting perspective on that, check out the cancelled series from ABC - Flash Forward.  You can find it on Hulu...
2. Favorite flavor of ice cream?  Strawberry cheesecake from Cold Stone Creamery (although way too expensive)

3. Panda or Rhino? Which would I want as a pet? Which would I rather be? Who would I rather pet?  Well, I think panda is the answer to any variation of whatever the question was supposed to be. 

4. How many times a day do you swear? ..and if you don't swear... then wtf is wrong with you?  You expect me to count? I have better things to do with my time.  Like swear, I guess.  ;)

5. If you could change one thing about yourself.. be it something about your personality or a part of your body... what would it be? I could always use more patience. 

6. Favorite movie?  There are a lot.  The Notebook has certainly been one.  There are several posts where I talk about some of my favorite movies.

7. Most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you.. or most embarrassing thing you've ever witnessed (if you're too chickenshit to share about yourself)  Spending the night at a local bed and breakfast one summer night and therefore packing lightly (if rather non-existently) and wearing white shorts and getting my period unprepared.  Pooping in my pants in Montessori school because the token we were supposed to use to go to the bathroom one at a time was already taken.  I'm sure there are several other things, but those two should suffice the curious...

8. If you could be any kind of animal, mineral or vegetable on the planet (or any other planet).. what would you be?  As I have left as a comment on Jaime's blog already, I already think I'm Venus, so...?

If anyone really wants to become tagged, I'll come up with some creative questions if I must.  But just because I throw the ball for the puppy doesn't mean I have to be the one to retrieve it, does it? ;)


  1. The Flash Forward book was WAY better than the series... and I'm not sure whether you calling me a persistent puppy could be taken as an insult or not .... for now I'm not going to take it as that... cuz I'm feeling nice.

    1. Consider it a compliment that I want you to still think of me as a nice person. ;)

  2. You are WELL deserving. I'm only sorry I didn't give it to you first.

    1. Hmmm.... Will withhold snarky comment, since I think you're being sincere... Still waiting to read your "acceptance" speech... ;)
