I Love Winning Shit!

I Love Winning Shit!

Thank you Beduwen for nominating me for a Liebster Award! You complete me.

The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award

I will readily admit that I am unsure of exactly what this means but if someone wants to give me an award, I will take it!!! Really, any award. Worst Blogger Ever Award? Sign me up because at least I’m the most “something” ever.

And, it also means that at least ONE PERSON has read my writing and seems to not hate it. This is huge in the emotionally tenuous world of the insecure shut-in writer.

So, here is how this thing goes down.

Here are 11 random facts about me:

  1. I wanted to be a geologist at one point in college though I suspect it was because I had a crush on some guy who was going to be a geologist.
  2. I was engaged one time for about 3 days.
  3. I’ve seen and heard ghosts.
  4. Someone tried to teach me how to be bulimic one time but I just couldn’t waste perfectly good food.
  5. I love old movies….like TCM old.
  6. I ate a burger with Nicholas Cage in 1982.
  7. I was kicked out of the Oregon State University dormitory system for having a Hail Columbia party on a Tuesday night.
  8. I’ve had a long talk with Sammy Hagar.
  9. I almost lived in Ireland.
  10. Someday I’d like to have a pet Meerkat though I believe the chances are quite low.
  11. One of my favorite songs is “Ooooh Child” by the Chi-Lites.

My answers to my nominator’s questions for her nominees:

  1. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Lucca, Italy….or Paris. Tough call. Can I have a home in both places? Oh, and I love Portland, OR too. I suck at this question….
  2. What is your favorite song? Favorite current song is Little Black Submarine by Black Keys…this week anyway.
  3. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A famous novelist or screenwriter

  5. What is your favorite food? Chicken Tikka Masala
  6. What is at the top of your “Bucket List?” Write a book
  7. Are you a “why” or  a “why not” kind of person? Definitely a “why not”
  8. What was the last thing that made you cry? The shooting in Newtown
  9. Who knows you the best? Probably my Mom.
  10. Do you believe in reincarnation? Yes, it’s how I was raised, actually.
  11. What food do you think should be banned from the universe? Fava beans. They are the devil’s excrement.

My questions for my nominees:

  1. What is the oddest thing about your body?
  2. Who is at the top of your hallpass list?
  3. What is your favorite movie?
  4. If you could have a super power, what would it be?
  5. Do you love what you do for a living?
  6. If you had a full day completely to yourself, what would you do with it?
  7. Are you a hugger?
  8. Buy it or make it?
  9. Sweet or salty?
  10. If your life were a movie, would it be comedy, drama, romance or inspirational?
  11. If you could get on a plane right now, where would you go?


Now, bloggers, it’s your turn! Here’s what you do:

1. Add the award icon to your blog!

2. Link to your nominator to say thank you.

3. Each blogger should post 11 facts about themselves.

4. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you  & create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

5. Choose 11 up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers, go to their blog, and tell them about the award.


I am nominating 7, because I am a very lazy person and I’m getting tired of the number 11. Everyone should check these nominees out because they are all awesome and make me feel inadequate every day.

(Yeah, thanks for that!)

And, my nominees are…..


The Cat Lady Sings

The Non-Girlfriend

The Midway

Wino On A Ramble

Shari Lopatin – Rogue Writer

Jenny Neill – Writer, Traveler, Sommelier

Peace out!

  1. Hugs for this, thank you! I received one of these awards from Natalie the Singingfool a bit ago, so I’m not sure if I can officially accept, but I’ll figure out how to work it into my next post.
    Tikka masala is the bestest!

    • I know! So many people already got the award!! But, regardless, I still think you should have it cuz’ you are awesome!!! 🙂

  2. “Ooh Child” is one of my favorites too! Thanks for reminding me that I need to download it and play it for my kids. 🙂

  3. Ah, Irene. How I heart you. I want to win an award too. Maybe for vicarious living through blogs? Anyway, I hear you on masala (though I’m a vegetarian). I think I’d eat dog poop if it was in masala sauce.

  4. I am sooooo flattered! Thank yaw! 🙂

    I almost screamed when I read “Little Black Submarine” by the Black Keys, because the Black Keys are my FAVORITE BAND OF ALL TIME. I saw them live in Phoenix back in October and almost died of a heart attack, I was so excited (and they were just THAT GOOD). Little Black Submarine is one of my favs my them. 🙂

    OK, I’ll have to type up a post for this award this weekend (fun!). And by the way, Nicholas Cage? Freakin’ awesome!

  5. Congrats! We should all be the ” something-est” ever at sme point in our existence. I’m usually “Worst Mother Ever” as voted by my 7 year old daughter! I accept my award graciously!
    Question though- Sammy Hagar pre or post Van Halen?

    • Post, I think. But didn’t they get back together again later? It was 2004 when I talked with him I think….he seemed more into his tequila label at the time.
