Strangely Specific Awards!

Whew! What a week guys! After so much deep thinking it’s time to lighten up a little and celebrate! It’s Friday after all.

A loooong time ago, in a blogging galaxy far away I was nominated for two awesome strangely specific awards! I’ve finally got the means to post them! Let’s happy dance for that.

Alright! First up to bat was Megiscat with a nomination for the Super Specific Sunshine Award!

If you’ve never read this blog then you need to go right now. Don’t worry, you can come back to read mine in a while but go read hers first! It’s that good. I really do enjoy reading what all she posts and think you will too!

Next, The Britchy One! Much like Megiscat, her blog is one of my top 5 favorites. She’s singlehandedly made me laugh so hard I cried. That’s impressive on the Internet! Go enjoy her writing as much as I do!

She nominated me for a Mystery Award!

“The Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

The Super Specific Sunshine Award

A new island chain suddenly forms in the South Pacific. Scientists, in the spirit of serendipity, need a name for the archipelago, so they run outside and grab the first person they see walking by. That person is you. What do you name the islands?

The Aisle of Lands. Try saying that 10 times real fast! 😂

Find any grocery list you’ve ever written – on a post-in note, on your phone, in the trash can. What is the third item on that list?

Snacks that won’t make me feel chubby…er.

Go to any mirror – doesn’t matter if there’s people around – and look at the bottom of your tongue. What is your immediate emotional reaction?

Ow, my tongue doesn’t like moving like that. Can you overextend your tongue? I did bite my tongue at lunch so maybe it’s because of that.

Let’s say you could suddenly make all the cable news stations cover animals with the same intensity they covered politics – all animals all the time! Which animal would you want them to focus exclusively on?

Goats. Specifically screaming goats that drown out the newscasters when they try to talk.

What is a random 11-letter word?

Exacerbated

I’m still not particularly happy with my computer wallpaper. What should I change it to?

This exact image.

If you could only eat breakfast foods for lunch and lunch foods for breakfast, what would be your go-to breakfast? Your go-to lunch?

Something to make my brain hurt less! Lol.

Ok but seriously I’d have avocado bacon sandwhiches for both because it’s perfect for both!!

A bedbug bite forces you to have one of these the useless superpowers.
Which of the following useless superpowers would choose and why?
– The ability to make only office supplies levitate.
– The ability to be invisible – but only inside a volcano.
– The ability to, at will, swap any picture on a billboard to a pumpkin.

ALL THE BILLBOARDS WILL BE PUMPKINS. Also I’m going to move into a giant billboard pumpkin most likely because I am not living in a house infested with bed bugs.

Do you hate your initials? If you could have any initials, what would they be and why?

I love my initials! I’m named after my uncle by initials which is awesome.

What is the most recent gum you chewed? Extrapolate a short story of five sentences or less with that gum as a central plot mechanic.

Since the surgery all I can do is gum. I’ll sit here and gum my gum until all the flavor is gone.

I’m not a flash fiction writer….

Finally we get to the good part! Questions!

1. You’re on an airplane. There’s an empty seat next to you and just as they’re about to close the doors a last minute passenger scampers in. He makes his way down the aisle to the only vacant seat, the aisle seat next to you. You look up and realise with horror that it’s…… who is it and why is it so dreadful?

My college professor… I didn’t turn in last weeks assignment and he’ll ask about it! How am I going to explain that binging Legend of Zelda was much more important than a small assignment that I forgot about until just now when I saw him?!?

2. If you could choose between changing the clocks forward and backward twice a year or having sequenced traffic lights that actually worked – which would you change?

I already have to change the clocks twice a year (THANKS DAYLIGHT SAVINGS, NOT!) so sequenced traffic lights. Though the ones here are pretty spot on lately. I mean they won’t be now that I said it but they have been!

3. What three subjects do you think should be taught in school?

Communication etiquette (for the love of everything, stop calling me sweety if you aren’t my bestie). Basic car maintenance (let’s hope I never need a jump start). How to coupon (this is actually ridiculously complicated and I don’t get it so I spend more money than I need at grocery stores…). Nutrition (like to everyone not just students who elected the nutrition science bonus class).

4. Which would you prefer to have in your car, heated seats or parking sensors if you could only have one?

Heated Seats!! No joke last winter in the dead of cold morning I would put a towel in the dryer while I got ready for work so I could sit on a warm towel instead of freezing my nethers off!

5. If you could change the law would you have the death sentence or not and if yes, for what crimes?

Yes. The obvious ones like child rapists. I don’t take death lightly though. I actually make a strong point to never wish harm or death on anyone because I believe it sends bad energy out. Karma will get the people who deserve it and my additional negative energy won’t help that. However, sometimes Karma allows others to act in her wake and I think anyone who willingly and purposefully hurts someone else remorselessly deserves Karma’s full punishment in the form of the death sentence.

Nominations

Ok, here’s the deal. There are so many amazing bloggers who deserve recognition. I want to try something new this time. I’ve done quite a few awards like this now and feel like I don’t have enough variety so am giving it a shake up. Bear with me!

In the comments I’d love to know in lieu of nominations of my own:

What are your absolute favorite blogs? Who do you think everyone should read?

I’m asking humbly for who you think is always a great read! ❤️ I will add their blogs and links to this post too so everyone can find them!!

  1. I always find nominating people difficult, especially when most of who I follow are creative writers, personal writers, or the like. I follow hundreds of people and always feel bad to say that I have a set of favorites that will always have a little extra attention (it’s like picking a favorite child). I really do feel horrible about not giving equally. Since you asked, however, the ones that always have my full attention are (in no particular order): The Bag Lady (http://rugby843.blog/), This That and The Other (http://fivedotoh.com/), FlashFic (http://rtillyflash.com/), Poetry from the Inkwell (https://poetryfromtheinkwell.wordpress.com/), Crushed Caramel (https://crushedcaramel.wordpress.com/), The Wonderful and Wacky World of One Single Mom (https://daisymae874.wordpress.com/), and Welcome to our Campfire (http://colecampfireblog.com/). I love all the blogs I follow though 🙂

    1. I feel the same! I looked through my last few Award posts and ended up cycling the same 15-20 bloggers repeatedly. They absolutely deserve it but I always feel it’s devaluing the spirit of the blogging nominations by not having a wider variety. I can’t wait to check out the ones you listed! Thanks for the comment!

      1. I found myself recycling blogs as well…but what I like to do now is limit it to one old blog, one newish one, and one that is just starting out needing more love (as I like to call it). I don’t have too many followers, but, hey, unless you buy followers, it takes others to help let people know you are around in the billions of blogs out there. I would love to expand my readership, and I do a few each day, but nothing beats that rush when you go from 0 to 1, then 1 to 10. I about died when I gained 10 followers. Now I wish I could get to 500 (but I still have a LONG way to go)…lol.
