The Liebster Award

Standard

Thanks so much for nominating me, ToyinFabs, I’m happy you think I deserve it.  More grease, ink, something, to your pen!

The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. What is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome

The Rules

1. Thank the person who nominated you

2. List 11 random facts about yourself

3. Answer the questions they have asked you

4. Nominate 11 other people

5. Ask the nominees 11 questions

6. Last and definitely least, let them know you have nominated them.

OK, here we go, 11 random things about me…

1. I’m quite the bat, hardly ever sleep before 3am, even if I have an early day the next day. On such days I survive by drinking a drum of coffee and biting the head off anything that moves.

2. Almost everything I own is pink, including my laptop.

3. I’m still looking for the meaning of life, and the reason why we all sing in the bathroom.

4. I simply can’t do one thing at a time, I’d get bored to death.

5. I am head over heels in love with a rapper/poet/singer/awesome human being called KNaan. Pure, unadulterated love.

6. I’ll read anything and it’s brother as long as it’s not a motivational book. I think those things are frauds. Them and life coaches.

7. Apart from reading my other big love is music. No, I cannot carry a tune from here to there.

8. I have this thing for Yoruba, the language and the guys (Future husband, if u turn out not to be Yoruba, it was my village witches that made me type this)

9. I seem to be fascinated with my village witches.

10. I’ve run out of things to say so I’ll go and steal some from Toyin’s blog.

11. Ah, yes! I’m VERY shy.

OK, now for Toyin’s questions….drum roll….

1. What’s the name most people call you?

Lizi.  A few people tried to call me Eliza at some point, it didn’t end well.

2. Would you rather be home alone or hang out with friends?

Alone. I’m a hermit.

3. Are you married or single?

Single, to my Mum’s chagrin.

4. What is your favourite indoor game?

Ah, nothing beats Ludo.

5. Synagogue or Celestial church of christ?

Chineke of Umuneke!  Is this a trick question??

6. For your honey moon, would you rather go to Dubai or Seychelles?

Seychelles, definitely. I hope bros is reading this, oh…

7. Do you think homosexuals should get married?

Nope.

8. On a cold evening, the Bible or a novel?

Sister Toyin, this isn’t a fair question, oh…

9. On a scale of 1 to 10, how well do you sleep?

Like 8. Unless there’s someone else in the room and then it becomes 2.

10.  Do you take breakfast?

Yes, they say skipping breakfast makes you fat.

11. Do you intend to publish on print someday and if you have will you do it again?

Oh yes, I do. Maybe. Probably.

7. If you were late for an appointment and found out 5 minutes from your house that you’d left your phone behind would you go back for it?

8. OK, we need to get something literary in here.  Ummm…  If you could get one of the writing greats to mentor you who would it be?

  1. Ah, Lizi, thanks! (^_^)

    Hm. I see you are single. Hm. That’s all for now…heh.

    1. If you could have a super power what would it be and why? (and
    that’s one question)
    As a kid, I wanted a cool super power like being to phase through solid objects, read minds or see the future.
    These days, Older, harassed and Working-on-a-deadline me just wants super speed. *sigh* What I would do with my 24 hours. Dear Lord.

    2. If u were stranded on a desert island what three things and which
    one person would you want to have with you?
    I assume there’s no electricity or internet connection on this hypothetical desert island, so here goes:
    Three Things the Vunderkind would carry along:
    1. A lifetime’s supply of Mars Bars or Golden Morn. Or both.
    2. My “Art of SEO” Textbook. Who knows? I may eventually get round to reading it.
    3. An encyclopedia. If I’m gonna be stranded, I need to come back wiser than most people of the world ^_^.
    (Oh Lord. This just proved to you that I’m actually not a fun guy, didn’t it?)
    And for the person I’d like to take along….hm. It would be selfish for me to willingly take someone who didn’t even bargain for an indefinite “cruise” on this desert island. It has to be someone who has a measure of responsibility for my being stranded.
    So….for creating this “hypothetical” situation, I fervently hope I get stuck on your pretty little island with you, Eliza.
    Hehe. Eliza.

    3. Movies or novels?
    Hey. I’m a writer. You won’t see me in a movie-themed squabble any time of the day. Solve for x in that statement.

    4. If you could get to meet one great person, dead or alive, who would
    it be?
    Alive. It would be MI Abaga. Dunno why.
    Dead: Definitely Einstein. Albert Einstein.

    5. If you won the lottery what’s the first thing you’d buy?
    A house. For my parents.

    6. To paraphrase Pink Floyd, would you prefer a walk-on part in a
    war or a lead role in a cage? (walk-on part in oyibo move = waka pass
    in Nollywood. Just in case you were wondering)
    If I say I understand this question, Amadioha might smite me. To prevent smiting…I shall…oh, look. Ice cream. ^_^
    7. If you were late for an appointment and found out 5 minutes from
    your house that you’d left your phone behind would you go back for
    it?
    No. But I would regret making that decision for the rest of the day. I know, because I’ve done this several times in my amazingly short existence.

    8. OK, we need to get something literary in here. Ummm… If you could
    get one of the writing greats to mentor you who would it be?
    Terry Pratchett. I love that niggah.

    9. OK, back to random stuff. If you could change one physical feature
    of yours what would it be?
    I just want beards, Lizi. Is that too much to ask? (۳º̩̩́_º̩̩̀)۳

    10. If you could change one aspect of your character what would it
    be?
    The fact that I cannot banter. I cannot hold a meaningless conversation to save my life. Which is weird, seeing as I do essentially that on Twitter. I always have this philosophy: if you must engage someone in conversation, it better be worth their while.

    11. What did you want to grow up to be when you were little?
    I wanted to be a surgeon. I can hear The Fates laughing mirthlessly.

  2. Lizzy…thanks for the nomination

    • Lol! Well done, you managed to barely answer just about two questions! But since you dodged them with such grace you’re allowed. And no, the lead role in a cage doesn’t include any fighting, sorry, so is that the wakapass in war or the local champion in peace then?
      Thanx for taking the time!
