Liebster Awards and So Much More (Part 3)

I took a wee break there from responding to award, to get the comic strip up and running. It’s up and running fine now, so time to get back on track with responding to them all. This time I’ve combined Liebster and Unique.

Liebster Award

img_5527I was nominated this time by the brilliant Moyatori. Thank you so much for the nomination. I very much appreciate it and think everyone should show Moyatori some love and go check out their blog.

Rules:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you
  • Answer the 11 questions
  • Nominate 11 bloggers for the same award in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family
  • Ask them 11 questions!

Questions and Answers:

  1. What’s something you do under stress?

I doodle comical little drawings (like a T-rex destroying a building with its teeny-tiny arms or stick people doing weird stuff), to make myself laugh and distract my brain for the stress. It actually works really well, I would highly recommend it to anyone that feels a little stressed out. So, much better than giving yourself an ulcer.

  1. What’s your opinion on abstract art?

I love abstract art. Any piece of art that can grab peoples’ attention and have them staring at it in wonder, for a prolonged space of time, is truly amazing. There’s just something fascinating and very intriguing about abstract art.  (I also love Surrealism and Expressionism, for those same reasons).

My attempt at abstract art. I call it Trippe Don Pain Tcans.

     3. What’s your opinion on poetry?

Saying that I’m from the land of saints and scholars, I also think poetry is amazing. It’s like wizardry with words. It’s kind of incredible how a few words used in a particular way, can be so emotive and thought-provoking.

  1. Do you believe in long-distance online relationships?

Unlike the tooth fairy, the bogeyman and underpants gnomes, I’m pretty sure they exist. Whether they work, probably depends the people involved.

  1. Do you think you should have a deeper understanding of your best friend or your romantic partner?

Not sure if you’d really want my opinion on relationships. I’m pretty much an idiot, when it comes to those sorts of things and once thought a good solution to this problem, would be to make my best friend, my romantic partner. Yeah, no surprise there, that didn’t turn out too good.26ec05f2-3a6e-4fd4-8161-55dba0b1df8b

  1. Favourite season and why?

Summer because it occasionally stops raining, the place looks very pretty with all the flowers in bloom and it’s not as cold.

  1. Which ancient civilization is your favourite?

The Incas. As a civilisation it sounds brutal as fudge and surreal with all the human sacrifices and stuff. But Glob, is it fascinating to read about, especially pachacuti (mad bas****). If you’re wondering who pachacuti is, here’s a little song to help you out.

  1. When do you think the world will end, if ever?

When the sun pulls the earth too close, to it great fiery surface. Causing the seas to boil and the land to become a fiery inferno. Killing every living thing on this earth. Eventually, the sun will obliterate our moon and rid the earth of it’s ozone layer. Under the pressure of our great fiery star, the earth will break and crumble into billions of pieces. Which will then be incinerated by the sweltering touch of the sun.
The good news is, that’s not going to happen for about a few more billion years, so we can all relax and forget about it.

  1. What’s the scariest horror movie (or any type of horror fiction) trope?

Anything with clowns. Clowns are just plain terrifying, with their sinister smile, showy clothing, big floppy shoes and creepy demeanour. I hate clowns, so much. Horror movies like I.T, can go fudge themselves because I won’t be watching them.1dd165fa-bd00-41e5-be68-90024e0a81cd

  1. If you murder someone, how would you dispose of the body?

Wow, this has taken quite the dark turn.
I guess I would try to necromancy them back to life while crying like a b**ch, because it would kind solve two problems at once. Firstly, no one would be dead and secondly, there would be no body because it would be up and walking about.

  1. If you murder someone, how would you commit the murder?

I’d kill them with kindness. I’d make them so happy that their heart would explode with joy.

UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD

unique-blogger-awardThe Fantastic The Spooky Red Head nominated me for this award. Thank you The Spooky Red Head, I appreciate you nominating me very much and also think everyone should show you some love by checking your blog out.

Rules:

1. Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you
2. Answer the questions
3. In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award
4. Ask them 3 questions

Questions and Answers:

  1. What’s that one song that you like, but you refuse to admit that you do like it to anyone?

Love questions like this, because they really get you thinking about how cringey you want to go. I’ll be kind this time and not go to a painful cringey level, by choosing the Pokémon theme song.
In my defence, this song is awesome to exercise to or do anything to. It just so Glob darn motivational. Definitely my go to montage music.

  1. If you could pick your own first name, what would you choose to call yourself?

Hmm…. this is a tough one. I’m not sure if any other name would suit me, but if I had to pick a name, I’d change it to my nickname, Nel or Nelly.

  1. Do you have a favourite quote?

I have loads of favourite quotes, but my favourite Irish quote is:
“Níl sa saol seo ach ceo, is ní bheimid beo, ach seal beag gearr.”
– The Secret of Kells

Translation: “There is nothing in this life but mist and we will only be alive, but for a short time”. Or- “This life is only a mist, and we will live, but a little short time”. Either translation is acceptable.
It doesn’t translate that well, but when spoke in Irish it sounds a lot sweeter and more beautiful. It’s basically the Irish version of life’s too short to be worrying about silly things, what happens, happens.

Nomination:
I still have a handful more of awards to respond to, so I’m going to leave nominations until I get to the end.

Hope you enjoyed this post and as always Thanks for reading.

      • No problem. The Secret of Kells was a fun movie. I feel honored to know that. I’ve certainly checked out both Irish live-action and animated films while reviewing some of them. I do want to see The Breadwinner which I know is the most recent movie from Cartoon Saloon.

      • Aww, that really nice to hear. I am Irish, so I can’t help but be slightly bias on the matter. 😀
        I haven’t seen The Breadwinner yet, but it seems really good.
        Cartoon Saloon is meant to be releasing Wolfwalkers sometime this year. It seems very dark and kind of creepy. But I think it will be one worth checking out 🙂

      • I do remember you telling me that you’re Irish. Hahaha! They do have some good movies in that country. That Wolfwalkers movie sounds interesting. I may have to check it out when it’s released in America.

    • Because when you break up, you lose your best bud and your heart gets broke.
      From experience, it’s a really good way to destroy a close friendship, if it goes wrong.

      Hehe, yeah clown are even more terrifying up close XD
