real neat blog award.

real neat blog award.David @ Wanderlushed ( nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award, and I’m honored — especially because he is so funny and his blog is one of the most entertaining I’ve read. If this guy chose me, I must be cool. Right? (Please just agree. Lie to me.) If you don’t already follow him, hurry up and do it now

Be sure to read his 3rd question and my answer and respond in the comments! (Great idea!)

[By the way, I think I have an obsessive grammar problem because it’s driving me mad not changing the name of this thing to Really Neat Blogger Award! Haha!]

The Rules:

  • Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions the person who nominated you provided.
  • Nominate other bloggers. Try to nominate 7 if possible.
  • Create new questions for the people you nominate
  • Display the logo somewhere on your blog – only if you want to. It’s an award!

Questions I was asked… with answers:

  1. Red wine or white wine?
    Red? Or white. No, red. My mom makes this great red wine/champagne punch… it’s my favorite thing about Christmas.
  2. What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
    I’m sure there is something worse, but I can’t think of it right now, so I offer this: During my wedding ceremony, I could not get my husband’s ring onto his finger so there was a long silence while I pushed and pushed. When I finally did the best I could, for some weird reason, I gave a thumbs up and the entire congregation started laughing. Someone wrote “two thumbs up” in our guestbook.
  3. Tell us two true things about you and one lie. And then let’s see if we can guess the lie.
    (1) In high school, I was in a rock band with four guys called BBC.
    (2) I have literally had my head examined because I whacked my head on concrete.
    (3) I received a perfect score on the math portion of my SAT/college entrance exam.
    — Okay — which is the lie???
  4. If you were holding a puppy in one hand and your least favorite child in the other and someone tossed a bottle of wine toward you, which one would you drop so you could catch the wine? Be honest now.
    As a reflex, I’d probably duck and hope for the best which would, of course, sacrifice the wine. But truly, I am not a dog person. I’d drop the puppy before the kid.
  5. Wart ise yoour’e fvartie wrod? Oops, sorry about that. I wrote that last question after a few glasses of wine and I couldn’t see the keyboard. I’m in a better frame of mind now. The question is: What is your favorite word?
    Am I drunk because I understood the first iteration of this question? My favorite word is fuck. I’m sure this is not a surprise. Especially if you’ve already read this:

I nominate:

The Monkey’s Jungle
Have a Little Humor
Cat in the Cactus
The Turtle Way
My Love Myth

Visit them — they’re all amazing!

Questions for my nominees:
1. If you could break one law without punishment, which would you break and why?
2. What is your guilty pleasure?
3. If you had to go to a costume party tonight, what or who would you dress as?
4. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
5. If you could change your first name, what would you choose?


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    • Thank you and you’re welcome! And I think you can respond whenever you have time… and you don’t even have to. Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed with all the blog stuff I’m trying to do all at once (never mind what I’m supposed to be doing off-blog)!

      For #3… I won’t reveal the lie yet — I’m hoping others respond! Thanks for “voting”!

    Congrats, Girl! 🙂 look forward to discovering the other blogs.
    I think its definitely 1. you are intelligent enough to get a perfect score in Math and can i believe that you hit your head. That explains the craziness 😀 so, it’d definitely 1.
    P.S. – I tried writing Congrats, Love .. then corrected it to Babes! but wasn’t sure how’d you take it so went it for a safe option. Just feel so proud of you getting all these well deserved awards 🙂

    Congratulations! And I would think that option 3 is a lie? I’ve never had to take the SAT’s but it sounds super hard, and well math…haha

  5. Oh. Oh. I want to cast my vote. I think forming the band is the lie. ‘Fuck’ is a great word. Not many choices better than that.

    I’m going to say that #3 is a lie because if you’re awesome at grammar chances are you’re not also awesome at math:)

  8. I kind of wish I had more guesses… but that’s okay!

    3 of you guessed the band is the lie and 2 of you guessed the perfect score is the lie…

    I decided to make a new post with the answer… I thought that’d be easier instead of coming back to these comments… which is where I’m writing this… so I make no sense. 🙂
