Response to the Liebster Nomination Questions
I’d like to give a great big thanks to Artemis of the Otaku Lounge for nominating me for the Liebster Award! It’s a total honor! I will repay her kindness by responding and passing on any nominations I can to what few aniblogs I know that qualify.
The Liebster award is intended to give some exposure to small blogs with less than 200 followers. The rules are as follows:
1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers
4. Go to the blogs you nominated and notify them of your nomination
5. Give your nominees 11 questions to answer.
Now then, here are my answers to her questions. I hope you find this a fun and informative read.
My 11 questions for said blog nominations:
1. When did you first start blogging, and do you realistically see yourself still blogging in, say, 10 years from now?
I believe I started about five years ago. On the subject of blogging ten years from now – hmmm. It’s very hard to say. I could be forced to stop blogging any day. But if I am doing it ten years from now, I hope I’m getting paid for it somehow, or that at least I’ve improved notably over time.
In ten years though, I’d like to imagine that I’m fortunate enough to be in a house where I can walk around in my robe in the middle of the day and just write whatever comes to mind. Writing this answer has reminded me how fickle and goalless I really am.
2. Describe your favourite country in the world in 3 words.
America, F*ck Yeah!
3. You have to pick one country in which to live for the rest of your life, but it can’t be a country you’ve already lived in before. Or Japan. Where do you choose and why?
Though I’ve talked a lot of sh*t about the French, even to a friend who is partially French. I do adore their history, culture, and just their amazing respect for food and the acts of preparing it. Having my own house built in the French country side would be a dream.
4. White, milk, or dark chocolate?
Ever since I had a coworker bring me real Dutch chocolate, I’ve never truly cared to f*ck with anything more than real dark chocolate. This is another reason why I’d enjoy living in
5. What was the first television series (anime or otherwise) you ever fell in love with? Nostalgic merits aside, do you still love it today?
I’m pretty sure Care Bears just barely beats out Transformers. I’m a classic child of the 80s so all those memories are still strong. While I can barely watch the Care Bears movies still (haven’t done so in over 5 years), the show I’m pretty sure is completely unwatchable to me.
6. What’s been the single best and worst television series (again, anime or not) of 2013 so far?
I’ll stick with non-anime material for this question. As far as material I’ve watched. I’m an admitted Brony, so the answer of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic should come as no surprise. The final episode this year of season 3 has to be one of the most satisfying single episodes of anything I’ve ever watched.
The worst thing I’ve watched is probably HBO’s True Blood. Ugh! That show is such a sh*t show that I can’t believe I’m still watching it. I should’ve listened to my basic instincts when I watch the very first episode years ago. I’ve invested too much time in it now to stop.
7. If you could have any one superpower, what would it be?
Definitely flight. As a kid, I used to imagine that I had the raccoon leaf from Super Mario Bros. 3 or the super leaf from Mario World. Flight is the ultimate freedom, at least until you get to an airport. Ugh.
8. What did you want to be when you grew up, and would you still do that if you could?
My love of Top Gun made me want to be a navy fighter pilot ever since I was young. That love was so strong that it trumped my fears of both heights and the ocean. Unfortunately, my mole-like eyesight prohibits that’s occupation. Though if I could, I’d damn sure would love to be doing it now!
9. Do/did you play any sports?
I have never been athletic, though it never stopped me from playing basketball as a kid. Right now, I just enjoy basic exercise more. Anytime where I can escape to the gym and lift weights for an hour I’m satisfied.
10. Have you ever spent more than a couple of days in the hospital?
No! Thank goodness. Oh wait. Actually yes, I work in a hospital.
11. In a world without internet, how would you probably spend the majority of your free time?
Tough question. Ithe internet is so integral to my modern everyday life, that I have to imagine myself going back in time to answer this question. I’d probably be healthier and have a different job. I’d like to think I was doing something technical that also helped people. Whether it involved building/fixing homes or working on cars.
