Today was a double nomination day for me! That’s right, a Daily Double!
Dragon Warrior, over at Den of Dreams, nominated me for the Liebster Award. And Beckie, over at Beckie’s Mental Mess, nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award.
I am always honored when other bloggers give me and my blog a shoutout via a blog award nomination. So thank you, Dragon Warrior and Beckie, for your recognition.
I’ve designated my blog as an award-free blog, but not a question-free blog. So rather than following all of the rules for these two awards, I’m going to answer the two sets of questions these bloggers asked.
First, Dragon Warrior’s questions:
Introvert or Extrovert?
I would call myself an “outgoing introvert.” I enjoy spending time with close friends and family, but I prize and protect my alone time.
Do you listen to your head or heart?
I’m more analytical than I am emotional, so I’m probably more of a head guy than a heart guy.
Do you worry more about future or present?
I’ve reached the age where my future is finite, so I’m all about the present.
Prospecting or judgmental?
I’ll be honest. I’m not sure what Dragon Warrior means by “prospecting” and how it contrasts to “judgmental.” When I think of prospecting, I think of people with pans prospecting for gold in the old, American gold rush days, or of college students prospecting for after-graduation jobs. The word “judgmental” has a very negative connotation, as in people being unfairly judgmental about others. But I believe that each of us makes judgments all the time. What am I going to wear today? What am I going to have for lunch? Who am I going to spend my time with? What movie do I want to go see. So I’m going with judgmental.
Ocean or hills?
The hills with an ocean view.
Family or friends?
Don’t you dare ask me to choose between family and friends. How dare you?
Courage or Acceptance?
I would love to say courage, but if I’m being honest, I’d have to say acceptance. Or maybe courageous acceptance.
Fire or Water?
Depends upon whether I’m cold or I’m thirsty.
Science or History?
This is a tough one because I like them both. History teaches us about the past and how we got to the present, whereas as science teaches us about how we can take the present and turn it into a better future.
Underground or underwater
Over ground and over water.
Lighter shades or darker shades
Let there be light.
And now for Beckie’s questions:
What are your aspirations in life?
To make it last as long as I can, since I believe that once this life is over, there ain’t nothing after that.
If you had $5000, what charity would you donate it to?
I’d donate it to the campaign of whichever Democratic candidate has the best chance of getting that moron, Donald Trump, out of office.
What is your favorite kind of music to chill out to?
Classic rock, baby!
How would you rate your experience on WordPress? 1 being lowest, 10 being highest.
You picked a helluva day to ask me, as I just posted this earlier today. So right now I’m leaning closer to a 1 than a 10.
Have you gained real friendships through blogging?
I would like to think so. I may never meet in the real world any of the bloggers I interact with here in the blogosphere, but I genuinely like and care about all of them. Well, most of them.
