The Liebster Award – 1 November 2016 Edition

I love this award! I think this is the third time that I’ve been nominated for it, and it’s a great one. I’m honoured to have been nominated by retr0pia75 on 1 November 2016. Please do check out his awesome blog – topics include music, gaming, and general observations…similar to my blog; very entertaining and quite well-written! I’m happy to have found and followed it.

First, the rules…these awards always come with a certain set of rules! I looked over these rules carefully, then used a combination of retr0pia’s rules and the “official” Liebster Award rules – people seem to get selectively offended if these golden rules aren’t followed strictly to the letter, ROFL!

Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and answer the questions they’ve written for you.
2. Post 11 random facts about yourself.
3. Nominate up to 11 blogs with less than 200 followers. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.*
4. Give your nominees 11 questions to answer.
(I don’t feel like posting any random facts about myself – so, I’m not going to!)

Questions retr0pia asked me, and my answers:

1. Who is your favorite Muppet?

Depends. On Sesame Street, my favourite Muppet was Oscar the Grouch. If you’re referring to characters on The Muppet Show, it would have to be Animal!

2. What are your favorite and least favorite DC Comics films?

I haven’t watched many movies, since I’m not a big fan of them overall – but, my favourite DC Comics film is V for Vendetta. Least favourite is Red – admittedly, I haven’t seen it, because there’s nothing about it that remotely interests me…so that seems to qualify, LOL!

3. If you haven’t already or are at the legal age but haven’t done so, would you ever drink alcohol or do you prefer normal beverages?

I am of legal age and drink alcohol – but I also love coffee or tea. No real preference, here!

4. Who is your favorite Marvel character?

Storm (from the X-Men graphics novels – not the shitty movies)

5. Who is your favorite video game antagonist?

King Koopa from Super Mario Brothers. I love that dragon-turtle!

*I was getting ready to rack my brain for creative, clever, light-hearted questions, but I can safely say that I’m off the hook for nominating anyone. Why, you might ask? Simple – according to the ‘official’ rules of this award, a blog that has more than 200 followers is exempt from being nominated for this (or probably ANY) award. I don’t read any blogs that have less than 200 followers; the few that I knew of have been deleted or deactivated during the past couple of months. I was disappointed to see some go away…they were pretty good, in my not-so-humble opinion! One in particular had great content: excellent poetry, delightful short stories, and beautiful pictures of sunsets. It appeared to be getting a good following and I bookmarked it as one of my ‘dailies.’ Three weeks ago, it vanished into thin air…there one day, gone the next.

Anyway, my apologies, but I can’t really nominate anyone this time around. Besides, I already have far too many things distracting me from my NaNo challenge, and I must keep that daily word-count up! In lieu of nominations, please enjoy these three songs. I have another award that I’m working on; I plan on posting it this coming Friday, and maybe I’ll do some nominations then. Time for some NaNo writing, then some gaming! Enjoy the live-streaming I’ll be doing off and on this weekend, if you choose to check it out.

      They definitely help at times – I like the blog link “parties” that other bloggers put on. They’re also great ways to find awesome blogs!

      😀

        That sounds like my kind of party! Where I don’t have to leave the house or physically talk to anyone and risk sounding like an idiot. The internet does this wonderful trick where it makes me sound fairly intelligent. I’m not sure how long I can keep up this ruse :p

        LMAO – hey, at least the internet makes you sound fairly intelligent! It does the opposite for many, especially since the election.

        The madness will die down after “Thanks-for-taking” day, when people are too full of turkey and thinking about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. ’tis the human condition…
