I had the pleasure of being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the wonderful Planet Simon. He is a friend and runs a wonderful blog! I do encourage all of you to check him out! Thank you Simon for the nomination! It totally made my week! The rules are really simple for the Sunshine Blogger Award and I will post them after I answer the designated 11 questions Simon has asked of his nominees:
Hot Mess Answers
What in life makes you wonder or dream?
I wonder what my sons will look like grown up and what career they will pursue. I dream about my blog continuing to grow and maybe even make a few bucks.
What is the 5th song in your current playlist?
Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera. Obviously my playlist isn’t exactly current. Don’t judge.
Do you have a favourite Bloggie?
Yes, No Love for Fatties. Who are they? She is my blogging sister from another mother (ok, that totally didn’t rhyme. Damn it!)
Share a link to your favourite or most viewed post.
My all time favorite post was about the time I took a diet pill, got cocky about it and shit my dress….at work. Did I mention I’m self-deprecating? Here is the post: Well Ali Be Damn
What’s the one thing you want to achieve this year that would make you fist pump?
It would be to make a living writing for my blog. That would be my #1 fist bumping reason! The 2nd? For my 106-year-old Chihuahua to go 3 straight days without peeing on the floor.
Are you a bloggie that plans or kind of random and get the post out?
Simon, this is an excellent question! I’m random though I wish I were a planner. If I were a planner though, some of my best ideas wouldn’t have as much passion in them. For instance the post I just wrote on how to be a decent human being in the bathroom. This stemmed from one day at work last week where the toilet seat was pissed on and paper towels on the floor. It inspired me to think about everything that annoys me in the restroom and bitch about it.
What kind of sense of humour do you have?
First of all Simon, you are double dipping with 2 questions disguised as one. J/k! Anyway, I don’t even know what you would call my sense of humor. I say this because humor has gotten me through my darkest times and I use it as a coping mechanism. Additionally, all the bad stuff that people sweep under rugs. I take it, throw it in the comedy washing machine and presto, I have funny content (see above post about shitting myself). What makes you laugh? I have a high tolerance for humor. This is especially true about comedy sitcoms. Very rarely do I find ones that make me laugh. The few that I do watch and makes me laugh includes: Baskets, Will and Grace, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Silicon Valley and Black-ish.
Did you have a new year’s’ resolution and did you keep it?
If you could be any animal – what would it be?
I was once asked this during a phone interview. I said a labrador. The HR dude stated that in all his years of interviewing candidates, no one had ever picked a domesticated animal. He then asked why I chose it. I said I’m not going to pick an animal I know nothing about and labrador are faithful and hardworking. I got the job. But seriously if I could be any animal, I would be a bird because I could be in Florida within hours, crap on people when I wanted and pregnancy would mean sitting on an egg in lieu of birthing watermelons.
If you could visit any planet – which one would it be?
Any planet that had friendly life forms.
Do you believe in love at first sight or attraction at first sight?
Interesting question. I would love for love at first sight to be what happens when 2 people lock eyes. In reality though it’s attraction at first sight. Love is a product of time, getting to know someone and deciding if their qualities please you enough to fall in love with them. Wow, I just sounded super socially awkward there.
What is the most frequently used word in your conversation? It can be a swear word.
I think the word I use is “really”. “That’s really what he said?” “Really?” “Really?” “Is this really happening right now?” “I’m really, really hungry.”
