What a nice surprise for a Sunday morning; the lovely Rory has gifted me the Sunshine Bloggers Award! If you don’t know Rory, do pop over and say hello, he is so much fun and a really great guy – I just know that you’ll get along :O)  So, what’s this all about?

The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award for bloggers who are creative, positive, and inspiring – people who spread “sunshine” to the blogging world!

How nice is that!? We all need a little bit of sunshine in our lives and there is so much to be found in the Blogosphere, we can all bask in its rays :O)

Rory has posed some questions and I will attempt to answer them as truthfully as I can without getting in any trouble:

If you could do something a bit naughty every day and not get caught, what would you do?

Definitely speed, no not the drug, driving at speed. Around here the limit is 50kmph (30 mph) unless you’re on the motorway and even then, in places, it’s only 90kmph (55 mph). There’s a good reason for it – the mountain roads are very winding and downright dangerous in places but I do just long to be able to put my foot down without being flashed by a speed camera (which is there for my security apparently and not to make money for the Government).

What are the unwritten rules to blogging?

  1. Don’t make it all about you
  2. Be nice to other bloggers
  3. Don’t forget rules 1 and 2

What kind of cult would you like to start?

I don’t know about starting one but I would have liked to belong to the one started by Osho, mainly because he said things like this:

“Nobody can say anything about you. Whatsoever people say is about themselves. But you become very shaky, because you are still clinging to a false center. That false center depends on others, so you are always looking to what people are saying about you. And you are always following other people, you are always trying to satisfy them. You are always trying to be respectable, you are always trying to decorate your ego. This is suicidal. Rather than being disturbed by what others say, you should start looking inside yourself…

Whenever you are self-conscious you are simply showing that you are not conscious of the self at all. You don’t know who you are. If you had known, then there would have been no problem— then you are not seeking opinions. Then you are not worried what others say about you— it is irrelevant!

When you are self-conscious you are in trouble. When you are self-conscious you are really showing symptoms that you don’t know who you are. Your very self-consciousness indicates that you have not come home yet.”

Is a HotDog a sandwich, a roll or an overheated K9?

Sausage inna bun :O) I’m not sure if it qualifies as a roll or a sandwich – it’s a bit like the debate: ‘Is a jaffa cake a cookie or a cake?’, there are arguments for both sides

What is the most creative, inventive and imaginative insult you can come up with?

None of these are actually mine but I find them to be very satisfying on the rare occasions that I feel the need to insult someone:

“May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits”

“It’s like having a battle of wits with an unarmed man”

And, when I’m really miffed:

“Fuck you and the horse you rode in on”

Right that’s it for my answers, now to come up with some questions:

  1. What’s the daftest thing that you’ve ever said?
  2. If you knew that you couldn’t fail, what would you try?
  3. What’s the worst thing that ever happened to you on a date?
  4. Who would you spend your last hour on earth with and why?
  5. What’s the funniest scene you’ve ever seen in a movie/series (and please share a video as we all like a good laugh)

I’m going to gift this award to the following bloggers but anyone is more than welcome to answer the questions either in the comments or with their own post:

Darren is one of the first bloggers I followed and still one of my favourites

Billy is the ultimate ‘cup half full’ guy and always has a sunny attitude

Brian has an amazing sense of the ridiculous and his posts always make me chuckle

Have fun guys, I really look forward to reading your answers ;O)

Mystery Blogger Award

Well slap my ass and call me Judy! I have been nominated for another award and this time it comes from the lovely Sadje, a prolific blogger and all round nice gal, do pop over and see her when you have a minute, I know she’ll make you welcome. If you haven’t come across this award before, here’s what you need to know:

Well slap my ass and call me Judy! I have been nominated for another award and this time it comes from the lovely Sadje, a prolific blogger and all round nice gal, do pop over and see her when you have a minute, I know she’ll make you welcome. If you haven’t come across this award before, here’s what you need to know:

“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.” – Okoto Enigma

There seem to be two sets of rules in play now so I just picked one at random:

Thank whoever gifted you and include a link to their blog✔️

Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well✔️

Tell your readers 3 things about yourself✔️

Answer the questions from the person who gifted you the Award.✔️

Choose 3 – 5 bloggers that you wish to gift the Award to. X (I can’t tick this one as I’d choose to give it to everyone)

So, onto the important bit: Sadje’s questions, oh no wait hang on a minute, I’ve missed out the three things about me…hhhmmm…….OK, here you go:

  1. I have seen ghosts, more than once
  2. I thought that McCaulay Caulkin, in Home Alone, was the most irritating kid to ever arrive on the planet
  3. I’d really like to be able to wear girly, flowery dresses but I’m much better suited to jeans and t-shirts

Now, I can answer Sadje’s questions….

If you could choose one super power, what would it be and why? ( Funny, If it’s not already apparent)

I’d like a super power that would enable me to track lost socks; the little bastards know I hate them and are forever making a bid for freedom

What stimulates your brain to produce its best, a beverage, a muse or anything else?

A shower normally, I have no idea why but some of my best writing has been formulated whilst trying not to get shampoo in my eyes

If you are alone in the house and a door slams upstairs with sound of running feet, what are you going to do?

I live in an apartment so I don’t have an upstairs but, if I did, I would imagine that I would be incredibly brave and scream like a 5 year old girl.

Seeing your image in the mirror, what is the predominant thought?

Meh!

What sort of movie you have to go and see, even if the ticket is $100? And there will no Netflix or DVD release!

The film version of Boston Legal (I still have a crush on Alan Shore)

There you have it, thanks again Sadje for the nomination and now I guess I’ll have to think of some questions; back in a sec…..

Right, here we go:

You have been invited to a formal dinner party but you only have a choice of two outfits: a wetsuit or a fairy outfit (tutu, pink, you get the picture), which would you choose?

You can spend the day with any film/tv character – who would it be? (yes, I’m still thinking about Alan Shore)

You have won a free holiday to a resort of your choosing, anywhere in the World – where would you go?

You are give the opportunity to erase 1 memory, what would it be?

Given the choice between being locked in a 20 x 20 room alone for 24 hours or with 19 others, what would you pick?

Now this should be the part where I nominate other people but I am not going to; if  you want to answer these questions I would love to read your answers and, as I said, as far as I’m concerned, you all deserve an award :O)
