Liebster is the German word for favorite, beloved, or dearest. This award is meant for smaller blogs with less than two hundred followers to help expose them to the world and help them discover other new and upcoming bloggers.
This is my first blog award thingy… so I still don’t quite know what I’m doing and I’m still at a super baby blogging level but at least I have something to polish daily now.
So without further ado here are the 10 questions that SSM chose:
- What’s your pet peeve?
Let’s see… for some reason, 3 came to my head quickly so I guess I’ll just put them all:
When people misspell the country “Colombia” for “Columbia”. For some reason, it makes my eye twitch a little more if the person/people are Hispanic (I’m looking at you, certain Cuban supermarket that may or may not be Sedanos).
Not closing the bag of snacks/food after using it. You’re just going to leave the bag open like that and put it away? Really? But that’s how stuff gets all stale faster and non-crunchy and… bllehh. It’s even more pet peeve-y if they’re doing it at my place but I usually just close it each time without saying anything.
Leaving the cap off the toothpaste. Yup, I’m one of those people. Seriously though, when you don’t cap it, it gets all gunky and gloopy and then you can’t even close it if you wanted to! YOU’RE PUTTING THIS STUFF IN YOUR MOUTH!
- What’s your “go-to” book/game/movie?
Hmm, well let’s see… I’ve read Harry Potter like 10 times but I’m a big fan of A Song of Ice and Fire as well… I should reread it since there’s still no word on when the other book is going to be released 😦
I have too many games! Right now, I’m still trying to play a bunch of them and I’m fairly new the the video game thing (pretty much started playing only like 5 years ago) so compared to many people I know who started when they were 5 years old, I’m still pretty much at infant game level. I don’t have a “go-to” one yet to play over and over again because it usually changes after a few weeks/months, but I love watching people play scary/stressful games since I can’t play those without freaking out and jerking in real life which causes my character to start shooting with the accuracy of a storm trooper as someone is about to stab them in the face.
Movie… I seem to like rewatching comedies with other people (but I usually won’t rewatch anything on my own). I loved watching Inception though, but the movie I could probably rewatch all the time would be The Fall. I just can’t get over Tarsem Singh’s imagery, it’s so beautiful and lively and bright.
- AAAAAH YOU’RE KIDNAPPED! YOUR KIDNAPPERS SAY YOU CAN BRING ONE THING WITH YOU, GOSH THESE GUYS ARE REALLY NICE, WHAT DO YOU BRING???
OMG! Well since you didn’t say that it had to be something that I own, I’m going to say… LIFE ALERT! Just push a button and help will come to your location? Phht, that was easy, peace out kidnappers! If it has to be something that I own… well, I guess my phone? But seeing how kidnappers probably won’t let me call anyone or use the internet it kind of loses its point. I’ll bring my wallet and maybe try to convince them they can use my credit card. That way at least there will be a lead when people realize I’ve been missing 😀
- What is your guilty internet pleasure?
Oh no, bro. Probably Reddit… but lately it’s been the stupid Steam card collecting/selling so I can get badges. I have shamed my past and future generations.
- The cartoon show you grew up watching every day after school is?
Oh geez, well the first thing that comes to my head is Power Rangers and the second thing is Wishbone. Those aren’t cartoons though, but I didn’t watch anything else after school. D: Oddly enough, I wasn’t really a huge fan of any cartoons while in elementary school… they kind of bored me and I would usually change the channel when a cartoon came on (I apologize to all I have offended with this statement). As I grew older, I became more of a fan of cartoons though – Benjamin Button style.
- Someone asks you to name a newly discovered star, what do you name it?
Its name would be a sentence. “My Life Is Like A Fart” (haha, get it? Because hot gas..?)
- What song is stuck in your head right now?
Hmm… I don’t have one stuck in my head right now… let’s see. OMG BRAIN QUICK! FIRST SONG YOU CAN THINK OF! …it turned out to be the Folders coffee song. Thanks, Brain.
- Tell me something new that you just learned about.
Diphenyl-isatin is found in prunes and is responsible for its laxative effect. Sorry guys, I had an exam today and it was the first thing that popped into my mind (because I guessed and got it right!).
- What is your favorite quote?
“People say nothing’s impossible, but I do nothing every day!” -Winnie the Pooh
- The zombie apocalypse is now upon us, what new name and back story do you decide to take on in this new world?
New name? Umm… maybe Stephanie I guess? Wait, back story? Like I can be whoever I want? Phht, screw that lame name then! My new name can be Kimchi and I’ll be like that one girl from the movie Hanna. I trained all my life to be a ruthless assassin and secret intelligence people were after me; killing and escaping from zombies will be a piece of cake! I’m totally surviving this calamity.
I would tag others in this but the people I currently follow have already been tagged this week 😮
I should find more blogs to follow…
