Melanie, over at Sparks From a Combustible Mind, was nominated for two blogging awards, the Sunshine Blogger Award and the Leibster Award. Melanie answered all of the questions the bloggers who nominated her asked, and then she concocted a bunch of her own questions.
But when it came to nominating 5 to 11 other bloggers for the award, she rebelled and wrote, “I nominate anyone who cares to answer these questions.” Well, I’m anybody and I care to answer her questions. So here goes.
When making an entrance in to a party, do you make your presence known? Do you slip in and look for someone you know? Do you sneak in quietly and find a safe spot to roost?
I’m really not much of a party goer, so I rarely have to decide how to make an entrance to a party. But since I’m a bit of an introvert, I would seek out someone — anyone — I know and hang out with them until it’s time to go.
Do you like eggs? If so, what’s your favorite style in which they are prepared? Scrambled, over easy, hard or soft boiled etc…?
Yes, I do like eggs. Over easy unless I want something mixed in with my eggs, in which case I’d choose either an omelette or a soft scramble.
What is your strongest sense? If you had to give one up, which would it be?
My strongest sense is my sense of humor and I would never give that up. As to which sense I would give up, it would be to never, ever watch the movie “The Sixth Sense” again.
What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?
Ben & Jerry’s Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream ice cream.
How has your birth order/characteristics of siblings affected you?
I had two much older sisters who treated me more like their child than their baby brother. They spoiled me rotten.
If you could restore one broken relationship, which would it be?
None. I’m perfectly happy with the relationship I have with my wife. Okay, on the count of three, everyone say “Awwww.” One, two, three.
How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?
Not difficult at all. I would simply refuse to ever forgive someone who refuses to apologize.
When did you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long term result? Conversely, are you close with anyone now that you really disliked at first?
I clicked the instant I met the woman who eventually became my wife. It took her a lot longer for me to click with her. But I persisted and she relented and the rest is history.
What was the best news you ever received?
When my son got his acceptance letter to an Ivy League college.
In what area of your life are you immature?
I asked my wife to help me with this question. Her response: “In what area of your life are you not immature?”
When sleeping: Fan or No Fan OR noise or no background noise?
No fan, no noise. Just very dark and very quiet.
If anyone else wants to take on these questions, go for it.
