Neato

Bloggers are the best. I’m reminded of that every single day when I read through blog posts written by people that I will never meet. There are a lot of hidden comedians in the world and most of them reside on WordPress.

That being said, when I’m nominated for an award that snakes it’s way through the blogging community, I’m going to accept it. Why? My ego.

But seriously, if someone is nominated for an award and then must pass it along, and I’m one of the people they think of, I take that as a compliment.

I know some people don’t “do awards”, and that’s fine. Everyone has their reasons.

Now then, I’d like to thank Hannah for nominating me for the Real Neat Blog award! Go check out her blog!

The rules are:

Put the Award Logo on your blog
Answer seven questions by the person who nominated you
Thank the person who nominated you, linking to their blog
Nominate any number of blogs for the award, linking to their blog
Let them know that you nominated them for the award

(I’m going to break three of these rules, keep reading.)

Now for my favourite part: questions.

1. What is the most interesting thing that happened to you this week?

Do naps count? Man, this was a pretty dull week. Let’s see. Oh, I got it! I ate a mint aero chocolate bar for the first time in about a year and it was delicious! I’m on a mission to find people who like mint chocolate because I feel like we’re a rare breed. So if you like mint chocolate…let’s be friends.

2. Did you become who said you wanted to be when you said “When I grow up…”?

No. Now I feel bad about myself. I wanted to be a baseball player, but quickly realized it wasn’t going to happen.

3. What is the weather like today?

Love this question. The day started with a nice thunderstorm that woke me up at 6AM. Sounded like someone threw a bowling ball at my window. It was a high of 9 degrees Celsius. Sorry, American readers, I don’t use Fahrenheit. Also it was really windy. Like “knock your socks off even though they’re in your shoes” windy.

4. Red or blue?

Blue.

5. Are you dealing with Spring Fever?

I don’t know what this is. Hold on, let me Google it. Oh, well now I feel dumb. Uhh, I wouldn’t say I’m dealing with Spring Fever. It’s probably my least favourite season of the year, though I should give it more credit.

6. What is the nicest thing a stranger has said/done to you?

My last day of moving out of residence at school in fourth year University, the check out lady told me she saw good things for me in the near future. I’m still hanging on to those words hoping “near future” applies to two years later.

7. Would you prefer a compliment or a hug?

Compliment. It lasts longer. And I can remember it. But if it’s a dumb compliment like, “nice shirt”, then I’ll take the hug.

Alright, I’m at the point where I have to nominate other bloggers. However, I want to do something different.

I’m supposed to ask seven questions and seek the responses from the people I nominate. Instead, I’m not going to nominate anyone. I’m going to ask seven questions, and if you are reading this blog post, I want you to answer them in the comments sections below.

Hopefully enough people comment, so you can all compare your answers and check out each other’s blogs.

Also, I’ve had the idea for a while of just posting a bunch of random questions and looking for answers, so hopeful this kickstarts that for me.

This could be a terrible idea, but here are the seven questions!

1. If you could be on any game show, which one would it be?

2. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever gotten while trick-or-treating?

3. When was the last time you lied to someone?

4. If you had a pet Parrot, what would you name it?

5. Have you ever been stuck in an elevator?

6. What’s your favourite smell?

7. What’s your favourite song lyric?

About Paul

This is the part where I'm supposed to write something interesting about myself and you'll read it and think, "That's not that interesting." So let's not do that and just think about pizza instead, on the count of three. One, two, three. Donuts. Now, wasn't that interesting?

    Family Feud, that show can be so funny sometimes. The answers people say in the spur of the moment, priceless!

    2. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever gotten while trick-or-treating?
    A sandwich.. seriously.. a sandwich..

    3. When was the last time you lied to someone?
    The other day a friend asked me if I wanted to come to a party, my response was, “I don’t think I can make it. I am really busy running errands and am already tired, I just want to crash.” When really I wasn’t doing anything, just simply did not feel like going.

    4. If you had a pet Parrot, what would you name it?
    Fred. Fred would be a lovely name for a Parrot!

    5. Have you ever been stuck in an elevator?
    No and do not plan to be. Closed in spaces for long periods of time would probably kill me.

    6. What’s your favorite smell?
    I am not sure really. Though, my favorite odd smell would be gas. For what ever reason, I love the smell of gas. Crazy right? Yeah I think so too.

    7. What’s your favorite song lyric?
    “And did they get you to trade
    Your heroes for ghosts?
    Hot ashes for trees?
    Hot air for a cool breeze?
    Cold comfort for change?
    And did you exchange
    A walk on part in the war
    For a lead role in a cage?”

  4. 1. If you could be on any game show, which one would it be?
    Wipeout. That show’s hilarious.
    2. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever gotten while trick-or-treating?
    I think I got a popcorn ball. It’s not too strange, but some people don’t consider it candy, I think. I didn’t care if it was candy or not, I like popcorn.
    3. When was the last time you lied to someone?
    I don’t remember.
    4. If you had a pet Parrot, what would you name it?
    Umm… Torrap!
    5. Have you ever been stuck in an elevator?
    Nope.
    6. What’s your favourite smell?
    Wet paint. Is that weird?
    7. What’s your favourite song lyric?
    Settle down, it’ll all be clear
    Don’t pay no mind to the demons
    They fill you with fear
    The trouble—it might drag you down
    If you get lost, you can always be found

    Just know you’re not alone
    ‘Cause I’m gonna make this place your home

      Wipeout is great! Torrap…I see what you did there. If on the fence with wet paint. I like the smell, I just hate that it lingers for a long time.
