Awards

Over the last few days, I’ve been nominated for two awards. I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Diana, and The One Lovely Blog Award by monimorphism and Mia Bentley.

Thanks so much!

I’m honored that anyone would take the time to read my thoughts, let alone nominate me for a blog award. So thank all of you.

The bad news is that I don’t have time to follow all of the guidelines. Unfortunately, my work schedule has been super hectic and I need some downtime. I am going to follow MOST of the guidelines and I hope (pray?) that’s enough.

I will answer the questions for the Liebster Award and give you 7 random facts about me. I heard somewhere that people enjoy reading those types of posts so I’ll whip something up. I totally believe it because I enjoy reading personal posts about people, so here it goes…

11 Questions

Here are the 11 questions asked by Diana:

If you had one wish what would it be?

The lead off question is a tough one. Should I go with the cliche world peace thing or the more selfish million dollar answer?

I would wish for the end of all suffering. That would encompass a whole lot of crappy things, such as war, violence, starvation etc.

If you could change one law, what would it be and why?

I would legalize marijuana. Not because I use it, but because I think it’s silly that so many people are incarcerated for a drug that is less harmful than ones already legal, such as alcohol. I think the ‘war on drugs’ is a dismal failure, much like prohibition was back in the day. I think the statistics back my position and I think too many lives are ruined over this horrible law. I also think police time could be better used.

What is your favorite movie?

Easy one!

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

What is your dream job?

I’m not really sure. I’ve never been overly motivated by possessions or wealth. I’ve always wanted a job that I could help people and I’ve already achieved that. I feel a great sense of accomplishment working with the deaf-blind so perhaps I’ve already found my dream job.

I also get bored quickly so maybe my dream job will change in the future.

If you could travel to a different time period, when would it be?

I’ll answer this one with a picture.

I might die a few seconds later, but dinosaurs are just way too cool.

Do you love zombies, if not why?

Not really. They’re one of my least favorite monsters. I like monsters that can think.

However, I’m a huge, huge fan of The Walking Dead. I think that’s more because of the characters and story-line than the zombies though.

Who is your favorite actor/actress

Tom Hanks is one. Anyone who can pull off a movie with just a guy on an island has got to be considered one epic actor.

Do you now or have you ever had a nickname?

Several. In high school I was called ‘Bones’ because I was a skinny guy.

My wife calls me ‘a-hole’ now. Does that count as a nickname?

What would you want your last meal to be?

My mom’s lasagna hands down. It’s cheesy, noodly goodness.

What is your biggest fear?

Heights and needles. I’m not sure which one is worse for me. They both make me turn green.

Do you think im awesome? lol

Hells ya!

With that out of the way, take a break dear reader. Here’s a random picture of Dexter to take your mind off the boring shyte you just read about me and to prepare you for the next batch of boring facts about yours truly.

7 Things About Myself

  1. I’m the furthest thing from a handy man. Changing a light-bulb pushes my handy skills to the limit.
  2. My ‘art’ looks like stick people gone horribly, horribly wrong.
  3. I don’t like plants in my house…probably because I consider them more work than they’re worth.
  4. I think and daydream too much. At least that’s what I’m told. I’m still not sure how someone can think too much, but there it is.
  5. I’m an introvert. I can socialize, but I need alone time.
  6. Crowds make me lose my mind. My version of hell would be a packed mall that I could never escape. I literally get a migraine when exposed to crowds for long periods of time.
  7. I drink extraordinary amounts of coffee, yet rarely have a problem sleeping.
