I’m an Award-Winning Fool

The lovely Estella Lynch nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is…well…I don’t have much info on it other than it’s a blogging award. So hooray!

liebster award

I’ve been  asked to answer some questions about myself and to nominate others to take part in the award. But as you all know, I tend to skip the nominating thing because I don’t want any of you bastards to feel left out.

On to the questions:

1. Which is your favorite blog post you’ve ever written? [Please post a link so I can read it.]

My favorite would be “Mental Illness: My Brain Demons Want Me to Fail” because it was the first time I was straight-up honest about my mental condition in such a public forum. It felt good to write that post and hit “publish.”

2. Do you prefer the city or countryside?

Due to my social anxiety, I prefer the suburbs or country. But if my social anxiety were nonexistent, then I would definitely be a city girl.

3. Cats or dogs?

Lucy the Conqueror

Lucy, the weirdest dog I’ve ever known (and loved).

Dogs. Always dogs.

4. Comedies or thrillers?

I have to choose one? I guess I’ll pick comedies, although my absolute favorite genre is sci-fi or horror.

5. Coffee or tea?

Um…neither. I’m a hot chocolate kind of person. Never really got on the tea or coffee bandwagon.

6. Words or images?

Images. I know, I know. I’m a writer, so I should pick words. But we’re being honest here, right? So I have to fess up: I choose images.

7. Meryl or The Donald?

Oh yeah? Well, I have a question for you: Am I uncool for having no idea what this question means?

8. Parties or private moments?

Private moments. See note about social anxiety above.

9. Are you a world-traveler or homebody?

I’m a homebody although I wish I were a world-traveler. That fun social anxiety I’ve mentioned twice already? It has a buddy called travel anxiety. They both live in a corner of my brain and plot ways to make me freak out.

10. What/who inspires you?

inspire me liebster award

Art, music, people who have overcome difficult situations, and nature.

11. Why blog?

I began blogging because I figured it was what was expected of me, given that I’m a freelance writer. But now I blog because I enjoy it. Quite a bit.

That’s all for now, folks. I hope your day is as far out and wonderful as possible.

Haha, I love how you wrote why you’re not nominating. I think the Meryl or Donald question is about which one do you want to date. Seriously, that question means whose side are you on? What Meryl said about the Donald when she accepted an award many award shows ago, or Donald’s response to her criticism of her.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh yes, now I see. Well, I probably would have had a very snarky response to that question, so it might be best that I didn’t put two and two together initially.

Yes, you played it diplomatically.

Loved this! Thanks for playing along and giving a bit of sharp insight into who-is-you. And yes–diplomatic on the Meryl/Donald questions which was perfect. I also share your conundrum of words/images. Enjoyed this!

I get #9. Plane travel sucks these days, anyway. You find other ways to fly.
