Liebster award

Liebster means dearest. I’m dear, dear dear, deer, deer, doe? doe, rei, mei, fa…. sorry, short on sleep at the moment.

 Lina at Tiny Ugly Animal was sweet enough to tag me for the Liebster award. I am so thrilled to get to answer the questions she puts forth here. Her questions are great and her quirky sense of humor comes through in her choices. Her sense of humor is the best, I almost always giggle when I read her posts. 



  1. Display Award (I found one on google)
  2. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you.
  3. Answer the 11 questions they’ve written for you.
  4. Nominate 5 – 11 bloggers.

What would be much better if you could change the color of it?

Herbal tea. I like to judge the strength of my tea by its color. Herbal tea is a clearish green or yellow color most of the time. I would make this coloring stronger so I didn’t have to keep track of how long the tea bag had been brewing.

When was the last time you screamed at the top of your lungs?

My family keeps our coats in the spare bedroom because we have too many coats for the hall closet. I went in the spare room to hang up my coat. The lights were off and it was late in the evening, meaning it was very dark. Before me I saw a tall dark shadow standing there and I shrieked. It was my brother.

What was the weirdest conversation you ever overheard?

Honey, I am the weirdest conversation you ever overheard. The looks my mom and I get.

I do remember though, before I was in my teens overhearing a teenage girl telling another teenage girl how her boyfriend had been forced to climb out of her bedroom window. They had just had sex and it was the only way to avoid getting caught by her parents. I’m pretty sure that conversation mentally scarred me.

What do you dislike, but have no good reason for disliking?

Certain Western TV shows. I like gunsmoke and the rifleman and many others, but for some reason I just don’t like Wagon Train or The Big Valley, I don’t know why. Sometimes I dislike Bananza, but I give them a pass sometimes because of little Joe.

What Ice-cream flavor is absolutely disgusting?

I don’t think I’ve ever met an Ice Cream flavor I didn’t like, but if they ever make a Bacon or Pizza flavored ice cream (they probably have, they made dum dum suckers with those flavors) I am running the other way.

What food would be the best to make a house out of?

Well, considering its pretty much an established fact, I’m going to say gingerbread.

What’s the worst you’ve ever seen someone screw up on social media?

I really don’t pay attention to social media. I’m sure many would say Trump, but I honestly don’t even remember anything he’s said on social media, which I would have seen via the news. I’m very odd for someone in her early 20’s.

What is the ugliest thing you own?

Probably the Laptop I’m writing this on. It’s mostly black, but the outer layer of, whatever the heck you would call this non paint covering, is peeling off in places to reveal a grayish silver color underneath. Its dented and boxy and I get looks when I take it places. It works for what I need it to. I only write on it. It doesn’t hook up to the internet because it is to old, which is fine, because other wise I would get distracted.

What view would you most like to have out of your window?

I would want a willow tree. Really close, almost so I could peak inside it. Actually I want a branch to come right up to my window so I can crawl out into the tree and sit in it like Pocahontas sat in Mother Willow.

What’s the worst thing a person can do that isn’t illegal?

If I’m going to be honest? Have or give an abortion. I’ve spoken against abortion on four separate occasions. One of these occasions was at a local political gala, where I was able to meet my state representative. In other words, I feel very strongly here. I understand that some woman have practical reasons for wanting an abortion and I blame our society for making these reasons happen. Health is of course another matter and is above practicality as being a necessity at times.

Where’s the weirdest place you’ve found something that you lost?

It’s back to the light and fluffy now. I once found my cat in my dads sock and handkerchief drawer. She had crawled inside to sleep and my dad had shut it. I spent all day searching for her and I couldn’t find her. I found her that night when I went to pull a handkerchief out of that drawer.

Here are my questions. While Lina found those awesome questions on the internet I ended up turning to my napkin holder. (we bought napkins with questions on them).


  1. What is the most outrageous thing you saw today? 
  2. What did you do to change the world, no matter how small? (your socks maybe?) 
  3. What is your best joke? 
  4. What is your favorite Gif?
  5. It is swap day, if you could swap lives with anyone who would it be?
  6. Country or city? 
  7. You woke up and your a thirty foot giant (titan?) what can you see? 
  8. What is your favorite scent?
  9. If you had to rename your blog what would its new name be?
  10. You are king or queen for a day, what new law do you inact?
  11. Why is your favorite comfort food your comfort food?


Here are the nominees!

Have a good week everyone!

  1. Congrats in your award and thank you for the nomination! XD I do thing that abortion being legal is a good thing, BUT (and that’s a huge but) it depends on the circumstances… I don’t agree with it being used as almost a contraception (is that how you say in English)… Like the girls who stopped taking the pill and stopped using condoms and if they end up pregnant they just do an abortion… Well I’m don’t agree with that in one bit

    1. I don’t think that’s the norm or very usual. At least not where I come from. You can have the need for doing an abortion for a number of reasons and I think it is good that it is legal. Doing an abortion isn’t an easy thing.

  2. Woohoo! Congratulations on the award! Well deserved indeed. I haven’t been following your blog for very long (seriously how did that happen) but I have been enjoying it very much so far. Haha: yeah Lina’s sense of humor is definitely the best!
    Liked reading the answers you provided: bacon or pizza icecream huh? Well think I would definitely run away with you! 😂😂
    Enjoyed reading this post a lot! 😀😀Here’s too many more awards for you 🎉🎉🎉🎉

  3. Yay! Awesome answers. 🤗 I wonder if fried bacon could be good on vanilla ice cream. Like sprinkles. I mean, dipping french fries in vanilla ice cream is the bomb. Both are salt and it tastes good. And everything goes with vanilla. Right? 🤔

    Thank you for your nice words. 😊

      1. See, that’s what I am talking about! 😎 Salt and sweet is always (🤔) a good combination. As a matter of fact, I had to google bacon and ice cream and boy did I find a lot of recipes for bacon ice cream. So apparently it’s a thing. 😳 😎

  4. Congratulations! Great answers!

    I’m unsure on where I stand on abortion because I get both arguments, I do think it should be taken seriously and should be a last resort if at all.

    I can relate to being the one with weird conversations. It’s annoying because I might be talking about someone else’s conversation thinking that they’re weird and then someone talks about me thinking I’m weird just because I was talking about someone elses strange conversation! I overheard someone once say “Sometimes rape is useful” and when I bring up how stupid that idea is suddenly people listening in think I’m a rapist when it’s not true!

    Sorry for the rant, great post.

  5. Congratulations on the award & thank you billion times for nominating me, @shaddowcat. ^o^)<

    When you mentioned about pizza flavor ice cream, this reminds me other "weird" flavors. Such as udon ice cream and sliced spring onion (huh?). I wonder if it's yummy… <( ' 3')?

  6. I’ve watched a lot of Food Network shows to know that there’s been bacon ice cream made a few times. The donut/cake shows have had a lot of weird flavour combinations before, so I’m assuming they’ve had even weirder ice cream one.

    I’m impressed that the topic of abortion was brought up and everyone remained calm and civil, even if not everyone agrees with one another. Those kinds of topics are always touchy, but I like how open everyone has been and how honest you were with your views.

    Congrats on the award and thanks for the nomination.

    1. I really appreciated the civility here.when i answered the question I was a little worried for a bit. I’m glad, I didn’t want to have to shut down the comments or anything, which I would have. Everyone is so amazing here!
