Mystery Blogger Award

Anyone else craving Scooby snacks? I don’t know, I wrote the word “Mystery” and immediately thought of Scooby-Doo. Does anyone else do that?

Everyone’s hand went up. Perfect. 

Thank you to Cass at the aptly named, Uniquely Cass, for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award!

Make sure you go check out her blog and give her a follow by clicking the links in the last sentence, or this one, or this one. In fact, go there now!

Everyone grab a buddy, it’s an impromptu field trip! If you don’t have a buddy, the teacher will be your buddy. In this case, I am the tea-what am I saying?

I don’t know why I’m being more ridiculous than normal today, but I hope everyone packed a lunch for this trip.

Anyways, welcome back.

The rules of the award include:

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  4. Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  5. Answer the questions you were asked.
  6. Nominate 10 – 20 people & notify.
  7. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).

Three Things About Me:

1. I’ve never had Nutella.

2. I really enjoy eating mashed bananas. If anyone thinks that’s weird, just remember I’m the guy who’s never had Nutella. See, it makes sense now doesn’t it?

3. I have a collection of over 200 sports magazines in my bedroom that were recently   moved off my bookshelf and into a cupboard because I have a growing mountain of books on my desk (as well as a bunch on the floor that are still in their bags) and needed to put them on the shelf.

This About Me fact was inspired by one of Cass‘ since I was sitting here for 10 minutes trying to think of something.

My Answers:

1. What is your favourite activity?
Hitting baseballs at a local baseball diamond with my best friend Chris. Anything baseball related, really. I’m most comfortable with a baseball glove on my left hand. Some may say I wear it while blogging.

2. What toppings do you like on your pizza?
It depends. And I don’t know why it depends, but it does.

If it’s Pizza Nova, then I prefer just pepperoni and cheese. Though my parents will get their own pizza with green peppers, mushrooms, and anchovies, and I’ll help myself to a slice of that as well, though I’m always 50/50 on the anchovies.

If it’s from Pizza Pizza, then it’s pepperoni, sausage, and green olives.

If it’s from Papa John’s (which it never is anymore since they aren’t near me), it’s pepperoni, green peppers, and sausage.

3. What could you not live without?
Sports. I don’t know how people fill 24 hours in a day if they don’t like sports.

4. Who is your favourite band/artist?
Funny you ask this, because I’ve been working on a blog post about it.

My favourite is Brian Fallon. He’s been in multiple bands – The Gaslight Anthem, The Horrible Crowes, Molly and the Zombies – and has now gone solo for the time being.

His lyrics are second to none and a lot of his songs have played on repeat and acted as inspiration for some of my poems. I’m not a big fan of songs that don’t have a meaning to them, or just repeat the same lines 18 times and hope I don’t notice.

I’ll expand more in the post I’m writing about, but check out Nobody Wins for a taste.

5. How often do you do laundry?
Oh man. Do I embarrass myself and admit that mymomdoesmylaundry or do I Google how often a normal person does their laundry and go with that?

Don’t judge me.

    1. If you had to put one thing in a time capsule that you would open 10 years from now, what would it be?
    -Funny story, but a bunch of my friends and I actually did make a time capsule to be opened in 10 years… I put in a penguin USB drive with pictures on it. 🙂
    2. What is your ideal meal?
    -Anything that’s easy and tastes good?
    3. Are you a good speller?
    -Off corse i ham! Just kidding, I’m actually a meticulous speller and grammar nazi… But I’m not naturally very good at spelling, so I rely rather heavily on spelling suggestions when I’m typing and have to work hard to remember tricky words…
    4. What is a lesser-known song that you like?
    -I feel like you asked this question just to low key get new song suggestions, haha. Coldfront Heatstroke by Capital Lights. There are waaayyy to many puns and awesome wordplays in there.
    5. How awkward are you?

    I’m feeling lazy so I’m going to answer this all here!
    1) I made friends with a dog today.
    2)I have sunburn. We are pale buddies Paul!
    3) I have an inner monologue like JD from scrubs.

    1) I would write a letter to my future self talking about how life is now and my hopes for the future. We did this my freshman year of high school. My teacher was supposed to mail our letters when we graduated but he never did. I was sad. I want to do it right this time.

    2)I honestly don’t know what my ideal meal would be. I’m a funny eater. I don’t eat a lot in one sitting. I just eat a lot of small meals. I’m also full right now so nothing sounds appealing. If I had to pick I would probably say a good steak with some nice potatoes and veggies. Maybe some good asparagus or spinach. Okay…now I’m a little hungry.

    3) I am a horrible speller. My blog is evidence of that. Spell check is my best friend. I’m actually not horrible but spell check has ruined my trying to spell.

    4) One of my favorite lesser known songs is “After the Party” by the Menzingers . I’m pretty sure I’ve showed you this song before. I’ve been playing it a lot lately.

    5)LOL. I’m the queen of awkward. On a scale from 1-10 I’m a 500! DUH! I’m been told I’m “quirky” not awkward……but let’s be real I’m awkward.

    Send more song recommendations asap Paul!
