(Sort of) Liebster Award!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. The holiday season isn’t quite over yet, since New Year’s Eve is tomorrow (or “today” since it’ll probably be after midnight by the time I publish this post)! This time of year is always pretty busy for me, but I love being able to see family and enjoy getting into the holiday spirit. I’m always bummed when it’s over and life is back to normal in January! Anyway, I’ve got several posts planned for this blog, plus I have some fun future plans for this blog, so bear with me as I get caught up on everything! 🙂

A little while ago, my friend The Shameful Narcissist posted a Liebster Award with some fun questions! She tagged everyone and I thought I’d go ahead and answer them, even if I am 3 months late to the party. One day I’ll be all caught up on the posts I want to do! So, here’s my answers!

1. When was the last time you laughed? What at? 

Disclaimer: I tend to laugh at the dumbest shit. And sometimes when I start laughing, I can’t stop! I’m easily amused. 😉 I laughed a little while ago at my dog Minnie, because she was playing with a toy that was pretty much the size of her, and she tripped over it. She’s a happy little thing though, so she just kept on playing!

This is Minnie on her 10th birthday a couple months ago. She’s always happy!

2. What’s the weather like where you are? How does it affect you?

Surprisingly, it is cold here right now! Well, cold to me anyway. As someone who has lived in Florida all my life, if it’s in the 60s I’m cold LOL! The high today was only around 60. In the next few days, we actually aren’t supposed to get out of the 50s with lows in the 30s, and it’s supposed to rain. It is nice to have some “winter” weather, but it does make my head hurt and I get achy all over. I’m not cut out for cold weather, but I try to enjoy it anyway!

Look at that weather for Wednesday! Brrr!

3. What thoughts keep you awake at night? 

Grrr… a lot of things keep me awake at night! My mind tends to race at the most inopportune times. It’s not all bad thoughts, though. Sometimes I think about happy things! I kind of suck at getting enough sleep.

Yeah pretty much…

4. What conversations do you avoid?

All of them, if I can! I’m highly antisocial 😉 If I like you, you’ll know it, because I will talk!

Please don’t make me socialize! 😉

5. If you were invisible for a week, what would you do?

Probably a bunch of slightly evil things! Mostly I think I’d just freak people out so they think a ghost is near them. Things like walk by and tap them on the shoulder, make stuff look like it’s floating in the air, whisper in their ears, you know… ghostly stuff. Then I’d go to restaurants and grab a bunch of freshly cooked french fries- don’t worry, I’d leave some money on the counter so I wouldn’t be STEALING. Am I a horrible person for wanting to mess with people? Yeah, maybe. It’s all in good fun though!

Only relevant because of the word “invisible,” but the cat is too cute!

6. What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever seen? (Things on the internet don’t count) 

Hmmm… there’s a couple things that could be in the running for this. I’m gonna go with the time I was at work in the back office and I happened to look out the window. I saw a man in a motorized scooter with a lawn chair and an American flag strapped to the back going slowly down the road… right into oncoming traffic. Cars literally had to swerve around him because he was just… in the middle of the road.

Pretty sure he wasn’t delivering pizzas!

7. If you could live the life of any character in a novel, who would it be?

Um, I don’t know. I read a lot of horror novels, and I’d kind of hate to have most of those characters’ lives!

8). When do you feel most alive? 

Most of the time I drag my ass around like a zombie, but I feel alive when I’m doing something I consider fun- whether that be video games, writing, hanging out with my husband/ animals/ family, etc. Life is meant to be enjoyed, and I feel like sometimes I don’t get to do that 100% because stupid shit like work, poor health, and crappy situations get in the way! I don’t really need an adrenaline rush to feel alive- I just want to do something that makes me happy 🙂

Ah yes… I also feel alive when I sleep a lot like Snorlax!

9. You can have a penfriend from any time in history, who would it be? What kind of letters would you write?

Although writing to someone from the past would be cool, I would want to talk to someone from the future! Say 1000 years from now… so 3018. They would tell me all about what technology was like, how much the world has changed and what I could do in my time period to improve life! That is, if computers/ robots/ whatever haven’t taken over the world by then… Did I answer this question right? Who cares, this is my blog!

I do love receiving snail mail 😉

10. Do you ever feel like you haven’t a clue what you’re doing and you’re about to be found out? What makes you feel like that?

Um, yeah, I pretty much always feel like that! I’m one of those “fake it til you make it” type people who can bullshit my way out of tight spots. Also, despite being in my 30s, I sometimes have a hard time believing I am an adult. I had a moment like that on Christmas… my cousin’s daughter asked me to cut a tag off of her toy, and I was like damn… I’m the responsible one here. As for what makes me feel like that, who knows! I just roll with it.

Me, most of the time.

11. Would you like your home country to introduce basic income (everybody gets paid enough to live on whether they work or not)? How would it change your life?

Hmm, the last question is a serious one! I am not going to get all philosophical or preachy here, but the bottom line is this: everyone deserves to have basic comforts. We are all human, and one person is not more deserving than another. Namaste, bitches!

Oh my god… I just made this entire blog post and I realized something. I answered the wrong fucking set of questions! The Shameful Narcissist wrote out 11 questions, and I accidentally answered the questions another blogger asked her! SHIT! Well… I think I will still answer her questions in another post later on, since I made this one all pretty and spent time on it. Oops!

Well, I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year. See you in 2018!

  1. I definitely related to your answer in #10 this past Christmas, with several nieces and nephews waiting for me to cut their new toys free from the packaging. What a weird feeling! I didn’t grow up with many younger cousins or kids around in general, so it’s still really jarring for me!

    Loved your answers to this post. I hope that scooter guy was okay.

    1. Yeah it’s such a weird feeling! I was around my 3 younger cousins quite often growing up, but I think the difference is they just viewed me just as their older cousin vs. as an adult like their children now do. Part of me still feels like I’m 10 years old lol!!

      Thanks, it was fun answering these questions! I hope that guy is okay too! Not sure why he was doing that 😦

  2. Haha, you really are something else. I can answer ‘when was the last time you laughed’ with just now, when I read the last part!
    Even though you answered the wrong questions I still loved it!
    Happy New Year!

  3. Tbh I liked the questions you answered better than mine which I can’t remember anyway 😀 I was thinking, “Holy shit, I cam up with some awesome questions!” 30 degrees in Florida is hella cold. I think the high today was 18. It’s freaking freezing, and I can’t get warm even in my apartment. It’s not that it’s all that cold in here, but I think just KNOWING how cold it is outside makes me shiver. I’m hiding under my Doctor who blanket pretending to be a ghost and amusing my husband. It’s nice to be useful 😀

    FYI that is the cutest little Pom. My in laws have two of them, and they’re adorabillies ♥

    1. LOL!! Well I took a screenshot of your questions so I would have them ready for when I answer them! 😉 Oh man 18 degrees is way too cold! Haha that’s funny that you are pretending to be a ghost under your Dr. Who blanket!! 😉 Hopefully it warms up soon for you! It’s warmer here finally, which is nice.

      Aww thanks! She is badly in need of a haircut, but I figured since it’s winter I’d let her fur grow out some 🙂

      1. It was positively balmy today with a high of 40 lol. I didn’t even wear my coat while driving to work or walking in. Granted, I regretted this when I left after dark, but I was happy to see some of the ice melting. I think it’s 50 or so days until spring, and we’ll have the Philly flower show soon, though I have no clue why they hell they do it in freaking February! I mean…I guess to remind people that it’ll be spring and flowers will come back, but it almost always snows the weekend it’s in town so I never get to go.

        I want a puppy/doggo so badly hehe. Two kitties and a full time job make that a bit difficult though.

      2. Oh lord, 40 is still so cold lol! It’s actually like 80 here right now… and then by this weekend it’s going to be back down to highs in the mid 50s and lows in the mid 30s! No wonder I am battling some kind of cold/ laryngitis mess right now!

        Hmmm, that is weird that they do the flower show when it’s still cold!! You’re right, maybe they do it to get people excited for spring! The town I used to live in has a Flower Festival every April, and that was nice to go to.

        Aww yeah animals are fun, but a lot of work! I have 10 of them and they are all pretty needy except for my fish LOL!

      3. It’s weird because 40 coming off of summer is really cold, but 40 when it’s been like 2 for weeks feels practically balmy lol.

        That’s the only (semi) reasonable explanation I can think of. They want to life people’s spirits, but I think I’d prefer one in April to February.

        Oh my goodness! I just have two cats lol. We’re kitten-sitting this weekend for my sister in law, and I’m looking forward to it. I’d love more animals, but our apartment is too small for more :\

      4. Haha that is true! It’s weird how we perceive temperature changes. 🙂

        Aww, have fun kitten sitting! My cat hates other cats, so anytime we’ve watched another cat, she was NOT happy. Besides my cat, I have a dog, 4 turtles, a bearded dragon, a Pac-man frog, a fish, and an axolotl… so most of my critters are in tanks 🙂

      5. It’s been interesting and much different from the last time we kitty sat. It’s for the same person, my sister in law, but different cat. She adopted an adorable brown tabby kitten, Athena, but still has her other cat who terrorized my (at the time) only cat Kin-mei. We have a second cat Cid who has a similar personality to Athena, but she wants NOTHING to do with the boys, because the cat that terrorized mine when we babysat her does the same to her, so she’s wary of other cats, the poor thing. She’s hissing at them both. Kin-mei is hissing back, but there’s no fighting, and Cid just looks confused lol. I think if we kept her longer, she’d get used to them, but she’s so on edge. I guess I would be, too if I were kidnapped by giants, brought to a strange place with strange boys with no idea where my “mother” was, so we’re trying to accommodate her/give her what she needs. She’s such a cutey ♥

      6. lol aww the trials and tribulations of the kitties! I’m sure Athena will be just fine. I’ve found that cats generally seem to get weirded out in different places at first, then they eventually get used to where they are. When we moved into our new house in Oct. 2016, my cat was a bit clingy for a couple days until she realized the house was hers 😉

      7. She was such a love bug when she was used to it! And so long as we kept the “No boys allowed” policy, she was rubbing her face all over me and my hubby (he was allowed lol). I think if we’d kept her longer, she’d have gotten used to my furry boys, and I’m hoping we get to kitty sit her again! I really want to move before my older cat dies, because I think he would love to reign over a whole house. Not that hes sick or anything, but he’s up there in age (15)
