I'd Like To Thank The Academy...

I rock!
OK, I am truly honored and speechless to have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award for the 2nd time. I am certain this award will cause my phone to start ringing off the hook with movie offers, book deals, and of course the possibility of being Tom Cruise's next wife. Sorry Tom, I'll have to take a pass. If you have read any of my posts, ( and come on, I'm sure you are an avid reader of mine) I'm certain you know that I have a mouth and I know how to use it (did that sound kinky?) which I am told is "frowned upon" in the world of Scientology.

Anyway, to accept the award, I am told that I have to 1st answer the following questions that were presented to me my by the person that nominated me for this totally awesome award:


 http://akashicwindow.blogspot.com


1.) Do you consider yourself to be super-duper fly?

Yes. Well...kinda. No... you know what, I do. I rock and I'm not afraid to say so! If you are with me, you are going to have fun. I accept people for who they are. I feel I have a good heart but also have a backbone. 


2.) What is your favorite reality show?


 I HATE reality TV... does Jon Stewart count because I love him and Stephen Colbert.

3.) Do you fear that the Apocalypse or Armageddon will occur in your lifetime? 


I'm not that vain to think it will happen, but I'm not that vain to think that it isn't possible. But I do have to say   that being super-duper fly would help me to survive;) LOL

4.) What is one of your top three favorite quotes of all time?


No one can make you feel inferior without your consent - Eleanor Roosevelt


5.) Who is your Favorite writer?


Dave Barry

6.) Can you recite any movie in its entirety, and if so, which one?


When Harry Met Sally, Weekend At Bernie's, The Usual Suspects, Christmas Vacation, Beauty and the Beast (thanks to watching it a gazillion times with my nephew when he was 2), probably many more. Wow, I need a life.


7.) What one person has most influenced your life thus far?


Jacob King (My friend's brother that died at a very young age) and the many wish kids I worked with through Make-A-Wish.


8.) What is your favorite childhood memory?


Christmas-sitting upstairs with a cup of cocoa staring at the Christmas tree (I still do that). I also liked going to our cottage up North.


9.) Why do you blog?


My blog is called Seriously, WTH? I do not feel that I should have to hold in the stupid shit people do. I think others should have to share the knowledge that clouds up my brain. I also am compelled to write(not by a witch or anything weird)...whether it is for my own amusement or just because I have stuff inside I want to get out. If I can make someone else laugh or thing, "OMG! I think that too" and it helps make their day a little better it makes mine better. I like knowing I make people smile.


10.) What is the most terrifying thing to ever happen to you?


I was in a car accident. One night when I was lying in bed I couldn't move...I couldn't speak. My dad walked by and I tried to call out to him but couldn't. I was terrified. It was like I was trapped inside my own body. Somehow I managed to fall asleep. I woke up the next morning and was fine. Never happened before and never happened again but seriously freaked me out.


And finally, number 11) Do you wipe front to back or back to front?


I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you.

Now I get to nominate blogs and give people questions. And the nominees for totally awesome rockin' blogs are (note some of you I did not nominate because I saw you on Aubree's site (i.e. HillBlocksView, pullmyfunnybone and jennoddo) and thought you would kill me if I made you do this again;):

  1. Seeing as how you thankfully didn't nominate me (seriously, thank you)...I am hijkacking your questions and answering them anyway...ha ha ha ha

    1) If education and salary wasn't an issue and you could have any job in the world, what job would you choose? Ruler of the world of course...and Narnia.

    2) If you had the ability to know what other people really thought about you would you want to?
    Not a chance in hell unless I could activate and deactivate at will. Then I could get real reactions when I push someones buttons!!

    3)If you could be any other person besides yourself (and don't give me the crap about "I'm happy being me" play the game!!!) who would you be? I would be Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.

    4) What is the one gift you hope you are going to get for Christmas? Wow...I don't even have a list, I spoil myself all year long. Then again maybe my wife will take pity on me and get me an iPad of my own.

    5) What was your biggest "blond" moment?
    Never had one. But this one time at band camp....

    6) If you could be invisible and be in a room to overhear a conversation (past or present) what would the conversation be (Old love? Watergate? Kennedy Assasination? Snooping on kids?) Are you kidding?? In the oval office with Monica and Bill!! Heard all the jokes now I want to know how that went down (yep, meant it just that way).

    7) Who is your favorite comedian/ humor writer? Bill Murray/Hunter S Thompson...and Bill Murray playing Hunter S Thompson. Pretty deep, huh?

    8) If you could be a member of the opposite sex for 24 hours what would you do? Seriously...hot lesbian love!!

    9)What is your favorite Christmas movie? No contest - Bad Santa...I love that dwarf!

    10) I'm stealing this question because I liked it - Why do you blog? I have too much stuff to keep inside and I am narcissistic enough to believe everyone wants to know it!

    11) What is the one thing that you wish more people knew about you? (Maybe a misconception you wish you could set straight, a talent you have, or something else.) I am awesome!!

    1. OK, first off, I am highly disappointed because I did have your Apocalypse Now Blog on the list at one point and don't know why it isn't on there. I kept counting and recounting the # of blogs I had and sometimes I had to fix them because they were posting all of these extra characters and I must have accidentally deleted it, but I had specifically included that one because of the Mayan end of the world calendar. I don't know what happened :( I also liked it because you are up to date. Anyway, I love that you still answered the questions! And don't worry, your awesomeness shines through ;)

  2. I don't watch reality TV either.
    My favorite comedian is George Carlin.
    Congrats on the award!

    1. I LOVE George Carlin!!!!!! I was so sad when he died. I think he is up in Heaven somewhere jumping up and down like, "Oh Man let me go back there for just a little bit...There is SO much material for me to use!!!!"

  3. Thanks for the award, Shay!

    And, I'm two lazy to look it up at the moment, but I read about that sort of sleep paralysis thing a while back. I forget what it's called. I think it may just be called sleep paralysis. It's a type of nightmare or something strange. No cause of it, it just happens. Thanks God I haven't experienced it. Anyway, there's my two cents on that.

    But, I'll answer the questions and have them posted by tonight!

    1. Yes, I didn't nominate you because I saw that she did and I thought you would kill me if I made you do it twice (but you will notice I did mention that I would've if she hadn't, hadn't I? LOL

      Yes you can use my answers! I assumed you would ;)

      Delete
    2. Also, also. I went ahead and used my own answers, and almost nominated you again, but I'm not that big of a douche. Thanks for the love just the same, and I gave you similar props.

  6. Congrats on the award! I've gotten several of these but I don't exactly conform to the rules! See here http://www.shamefulpromotions.com/2012/07/award.html

    1. Hey Working Dan! Welcome. I just popped over to your site and then to Sinquiry and I have to say, I'm digging it. I will be coming up with a question for you!

      Chiz rocks!

    2. Awesome! Glad to have you around! You know there are 7 sins so you can always ask more than one question so keep 'em coming!

  7. Aw, thanks!!! I've been MIA lately, but if I can ever get my act together I'll get right on this... Look for it sometime in January. Because until the education/salary thing works out... I am still a mail lady.

  8. Hey, thanks for the award! I love it! I'm gonna put it up next to my "participation" ribbons from track and field. They mean I didn't lose because I'm a winner on the inside!

    And as for that first question, I am doing my dream job, regardless of education and salary. I'm a writer, which takes no education and makes no salary. Wouldn't have it any other way!

  9. Hay, thank you for the award! I am deeply honoured and will have to think very carefully about my answers....
    p.s. I wipe my nose from left to right. ;-)

  10. Hey Shay!
    That rhymed. Bet you never heard that huh?

    Thanks for the nomination. I probably won't follow through with the extensive task list because of my ADD but I will answer any particular question that you, as Shay, have for me....

    Uh oh. What did I just do?

    ReplyDelete
  11. That's quite a few movies that you can recite! But don't worry, "Christmas Vacation" is totally acceptable.

  12. Shay, I have an invite for you...to the Apocalypse Blogfest. Shannon over at the Warrior Muse and I are hosting this bad boy next Friday. I really hope you can conjure up one of your fantastic stories right out of your own mind!! And pass the word.

    Here's the skinny...

    1. Chuck I would have absolutely LOVED to have done this. Unfortunately my mom was in the hospital last week and I'm playing catch-up. I can't possibly come up with something amazing by tomorrow:( Thank you for thinking of me though - if circumstances were different I would have been on this like white on rice!
