It’s An Honor To Be Nominated

Sadje, who blogs at Keep It Alive, was nominated for the Liebster Award, and was kind enough to include my blog as one of the eleven other blogs she selected to pass the nomination on to. I have declared my blog to be an “awards-free” blog, but I nonetheless appreciate it when someone takes the time to recognize my work. So while I won’t be “paying it forward” by nominating others, I will happily answer the questions Sadje posed to those she nominated. Here goes.

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is people who ask me what my biggest pet peeve is. No, just kidding. It’s actually people who are too ignorant, too apathetic, or too lazy to vote.3D26B26E-4FA9-4201-9EC0-625F2AFEAE2C

2. Where did you get your name?

My parents gave it to me. Oh wait, do you mean my blog name? It’s Fivedotoh (5.0) because this is my fifth blog since I first started blogging in 2005, as I explained here earlier this month.

3. If you could change your name, what would it be?

My real name, my blog name, or my blog pseudonym? Actually, I’m happy with all of my names.

4. What was your favorite TV show as a kid?

This is a tough one since I was a kid for a good 12 or 13 years and the TV shows I liked when I was four or five versus when I was 12 or 13 were very different. I guess if I had to pick one show, it would be “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends.”873F8E81-714F-472E-9773-CBF6FF8EB35D

5. Do you have any weird habits?

Define “weird.” I don’t think I do, but one person’s normal might be another person’s weird.

6. Do you like fall scents/tastes?

I like the scent of fires (in fireplaces or fire pits; I’m not a pyromaniac for crissake). But I’m not a fan of what is referred to as fall or autumn veggies, like pumpkins, squash, etc.1FC58D28-857F-484F-AB7C-EAAC156DB9CB

7. What is your favorite holiday and why?

My favorite holiday is any holiday that gives my two adult kids a day off from work so that they are able to spend some time with my wife and me.

8. Do you prefer writing it down or typing it up?

My handwriting is illegible even to me, so I’ve gotten into the habit of typing everything from grocery lists to reminder notes to my blog posts on my iPhone’s virtual keypad. Yes 

9. Netflix or cable?

Comcast in my area offers Netflix as part of its cable lineup, so I get both.

10. If money didn’t matter, what would you do with your life?

It’s a three way toss up between traveling, writing, and doing absolutely nothing.

11. What is your favorite thing about yourself?

My extraordinary good looks, my sharp wit, my keen sense of humor, my intelligence, my creativity, and, above all, my modesty.

    I had a lovely handwriting — in high school. Now, I can’t read it either. Does that mean I could be a doctor even at this late stage of life?

    What happened to Crusader Rabbit that you told me about?

      Crusader Rabbit was earlier than Rocky and Bullwinkle, but it was also developed by the same guy, Jay Ward. I did love Crusader Rabbit, but I was so young then that I barely remember much about it.

        I saw Crusader Rabbit after you told me about it it’s on YouTube… How did the weekend go Sensei?

          The weekend was nice, quiet. And my favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series tonight, so that was special. Yours?

            Well as I told Jim, I’m thinking of taking a pledge to not talking (verbally I mean), for the month of November to calm my brain which currently is on fire…
