Well. Liebster. But liebe means “love” or “like” (can’t remember which one. GCSE German was a long time ago now) in German so I’ll convert the sentiment of being nominated for an award.
It’s been a while since I got one, and long term followers will most likely know how I roll, but for the new chums I need to fill them in.
I’m a rather anti-award person. I find it unnecessary in terms of me. Feel free to have it with yourself, I’ll always dig and be happy for you. But for my blog specifically, it doesn’t sit right with me. I dunno, I feel like having that sticker is some kind of confirmation for my blog when the only thing that should matter is if I like my blog. Course, I slate what I write a lot, but still. It’s my blog. Only I can take the piss out of it. Unless the post is really stupid, you know, something like “KILL ALL BROWN PEOPLE” or something.
That being said, while I’m anti-award. I’m definitely pro-people. So while I may not care for the award, I do care that Asariels Muse took the time to choose me and ask questions to know more. So I’ll happily do that part. I’m supposed to select a few blogs and ask them questions, but I overthink and feel the favouritism is kinda messed up, so I just ask questions which, if any of you wish to answer, are more than welcome to. I’m a good question merchant.
Before I begin, do take the time to have a look at Asariels Muse’s blog. She’s like a modern Southern belle and everyone likes Southern belles. The writing is easy on the eyes and not very “BLARGH” like my one. Check it and dig it.
Anyway. I’ll do the questions asked of me, followed by my questions to ask you guys. Enjoy y’all.
1.) What is that last thing that made you laugh out loud?
This. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. I fucking love Maury. I wish Maury was in England.
2.) Sunrise or Sunset?
Sunset for sure. I like my sleep. I find sunsets to be more meaningful. I do like sunrises too, but out of these two there is no competition whatsoever!
3.) If we gathered our families together for a fun day out where would we go?
Probably to a racist rally. It’d be funny to see the racists get mindfucked by the fact we’re having a good time playing an intense game of Scrabble or some shit. Since it’s just me and my Mom, I think a nice dinner somewhere wouldn’t go amiss either. If we’re talking evening, maybe see some kind of comedy show. I’d have to request that you make no mention of my general debauchery. Though everyone knows what I’m like. They don’t knooooooooooooooooow. If they ask I’m super Muslim.
4.) Tell us about your socks.
A good 60% of them aren’t even mine. I’m not really ott on the “etiquette” of socks. I’m pro-odd socks. Not that I go out of my way to do so. As long as my feet are warm, I don’t care. Currently bare footed so I can’t describe what I have on at the minute. These stances are one of the many reasons I am labelled, “The Hobo”.
5.) What is the last dream you remember having?
Had a similar dream about my dad to the one I wrote about a few posts back. I can usually lucid dream, these ones I had no control over which was slightly annoying. Maybe there’s some hidden emotion behind my inability to do so, dunno.
6.) If you could be anywhere you wish to be this weekend, where would you be?
With my Texan friend who is living in Denver at the moment. I feel like she could do with the support for her stuff she’s going through.
7.) Link us to or insert a song you like.
I love all genres of music and I don’t say that lightly. Drum and bass has always been one of my favourite genres though ever since I was 13. I like music that focus less on the lyrics and does it’s best to create an image, though I have no real qualms with song lyrics. But with drum and bass, the music production is getting a lot more technical which I like. But what I love most about songs in general, is that if they can paint a story for me in which I have the control of how the plot goes. This is one such example. It can be classed as fight music, sexy grindy rave music and it even can be classed as something tribal. It’s great and subjective, but the guaranteed intention that every listener will feel regardless of whether they like it or not, is that this song is meant to energise.
If you’re wondering what this song makes me think of, it makes me think of Skynet. The human race is pretty much extinct and the Schwarzenegger edition Terminator is break-dancing in front of John Connor as a big F U towards the efforts of the human race. Connor is pissed, but can’t help but find himself impressed at the T-1000’s silky moves. No, I’m not high. God knows what would be going through my head if I was.
8.) What do you do for fun?
I like reading manga and anime. I follow and play a fair bit of football (soccer) and I really, really like annoying my closest friends. If I’m nice to you it means I do like you and stuff but I’m not entirely just there in comfortableness just yet. If I’m making sleazy remarks in your direction, man or woman, or doing something to piss you off (should be noted, I wouldn’t like punch you in the head or something. But if you needed something from me, I’d give it, but I’d make you work for it unnecessarily) then I really value you. I really enjoy underground raves, the more secluded and niche the type of music, the better. When I had a purple patch, casual sex was fun too. Truth be told, I haven’t had much fun in general lately, too swamped by real life and trying to get employed. Working on bringing the fun back once that’s out of the way though.
9.) A photo that feels like laughter.
This pic gets me every time. That face.
The struggle is real.
10.) Why did you choose your avatar?
A dear friend of mine did it as a side hobby, I’ll never get bored of that pic. It’s fantastic. It captures my generic broodiness superbly.
11.) Satin, Cotton or linen?
I don’t think I’ve ever wore satin. So, cotton. Safe bet. Can’t go wrong with cotton.
My questions to you all (should you wish to answer)
1- If you had to pick one, would you rather have (at the expense of sacrificing the other two options)
-Your age rewinded/forwarded to the age of 20, where you have sex with an attractive person based on your sexual preference every day as much as you want and you can keep going for as long as you want until you are 100 years old? But, every time you have sex, the person is the same age as you. From 20 years, you grow older normally again.
-Unlimited, luxurious food? But the more luxurious the dish, the longer you will have to wait before you can eat it again. The selected dish is unlimited for 24 prior to the temporary ban. E.g caviar after the 24 hours would take longer to “reset” compared to a packet of crisps. You do not have a superhuman stomach so your metabolism and risk of obesity remains the same.
-Unlimited Weed. You can’t sell it. You can smoke it with a maximum of two people. I won’t bother with any more forfeits on this one, smoking it and trying to be productive is forfeit enough.
2- You find out that your child that you raised for 20 years isn’t yours because the kid accidentally got put in the wrong cot from birth. There is no way to find your biological child and your current one has no idea of the information I just stated. What do you do?
3- If you could have a drug that you don’t usually have right now, what would it be and why?
4- A zombie has bitten your best friend. It’s only a matter of time before they turn. They ask you to kill them because they don’t want to be associated as a zombie. Do you do it? How? By the way, there’s no guns around.
5- Did you take any unorthodox approaches to dealing with a person who hurt you the most? Funny/crazy ones would be appreciated.
6- Do you have any regrets in your life that you wish you could change? It can range from missed opportunities to repentance.
