For-real guys, I am probably one of the most uneducated Bloggers in all of Blogger-Land. I kind of just like to write and hope you guys feel my vibe. So when the lovely Henrietta of The Triumphant Weed nominated me for a Liebster Award I was like – What the Hell is a flippin’ Liebster Award? I actually said it out loud. So luckily my Boss now wonders about this mysterious Liebster Award also. ( Yeah, I’m on Facebook a lot at work but it is part of my job )
Now I either have you wondering what this Award is about. Or you are like DUH of course it’s that Liebster Award Thing!
I now reveal my Liebster Award – BOOM! Thank You Henrietta for my shiny new Liebster Thingy! You are the best!
Okay, I did some research. I know, you feel super lucky right? I checked out Fabulous 50 and Living With Batman. She really says it best, check the link.
First, here are the answers to the questions Henrietta asked me:
1: If you were going to write a book, what would it be about?
A dark comedy, probably involving a car chase. I have a thing for fast cars and witty humour. Oh, and add in something about a girl who always hurts herself. Wait … an autobiography maybe?
2: What accomplishment are you most proud of so far?
I am going to have to say raising my kids to be the respectful soul-searching Teens that they are.
3: If someone asked you to give them a random piece of advice, what would you say?
Never stop dreaming. You are more than you think you are! PS – I like giving advice, taking it, not so much. 😉
4: What’s been your favorite part about today so far?
A text from a friend telling me that he believes in everything I do and that I deserve nothing but good things. Oh and of course, this amazing Liebster Thingy.
5: What’s your favorite joke?
Two pies are in an Oven. One pie turns to the other and says “Wow, is it ever hot in here.” The second pie turns and says “Holy Shit, a talking Pie!” I know I’m a Nerd.
6: What’s one of the strangest things you’ve ever done?
There are far to many strange things I have done. I don’t really have the fear-of-embarrassment-button.
Quite honestly, strange things come to me, I don’t need to go to them.
7: Do you think people can control their own destiny?
Hell to the Yes
8: What are some of the first things you do in the morning?
Scream in agony that it is morning already, then brush my teeth while in the shower.
9: What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I am terrified of the dark. Like run up the stairs after turning off the lights frozen in fear – terrified!
10: What’s the first thing you notice about people?
If they smile, generally I am drawn to people who smile a lot!
11: If you could learn one random skill, what would you learn?
How to build a house, I think we should all know how to build a house.
Now to the other 3 facets of the Liebster Award.
Here are the rules:
- Acknowledge and thank the blog who nominated you.
- Look for an award image that you like, and post it on your blog
- Answer the 11 questions asked by the person/blog who nominated you.
- Nominate 11 blogs
- Let the bloggers know that you nominated them.

So this is where it gets tricky. Do I even know eleven bloggers? Okay, okay, I will do my best.
Now it is my turn to nominate some people. If you wonder why I nominated you it is because, well, I adore you and want to know more about you, the end.
