I thought these were the questions I was supposed to answer for the Leibster Award, but they weren’t. They were the questions that Moze Pray at http://mozepray.com/ answered, she nominated me for the award. I’m posting them anyway!
1.Which is your favourite room in your house/apartment?
My favorite room is my Master Bathroom lol! It’s recently been gutted and redone and I picked white marble, espresso (dark brown) wood vanity and medicine cabinet and mint green walls and accents. It’s really amazing! The rain shower has a window in it!! The second favorite room is my kitchen, also totally gutted and redone, more on that later haha.
2. Who made the greatest difference in your life – good or bad?
This has to be three people for me: my grandmother who gave me unconditional and loads and loads of love, which is what saved me from rack and ruin! My husband who is my rock and has been with me for more than half my life and continues to support me through it all. And my son, who taught me how to love unconditionally and who is a BRILLIANT, handsome, charismatic Law student. And I’m not biased, I’m a very objective mama (haha.)
3. What is the meaning of life?
The meaning of life is to be surrounded with the ones you love and playing in the white sand beaches of a turquoise ocean with an azure blue sky! Also being with all your loved ones in a bright airy house on the outskirts of a forest with hummingbirds by the dozen, morrphing in and out of thin air, and all of us cooking, playing games and talking. 🙂
4.When you grow up, who do you want to be like?
I’m 54, so I must have grown up by now. And I’m pretty sure I’m decidedly me. If I wasn’t me, I would like to be hmmmmm have to think about that one…
5. Name the single most irritating thing that happens to you regularly.
When I get awful letters in Scrabble online, like A O O I I I E, dad nabbit that really annoys me!
6. What would you never change about yourself, even if you could?
I would never change the family I come from. Even though there is an INCREDIBLE amount of mental illness in my family (see ” History of mental illness in my family, quite extensive” at: https://bipolar1blog.wordpress.com/2014/10/17/251/) There have been and are extremely intelligent, compassionate, brilliant, loving, creative, innocent people in my family and I wouldn’t give them up for the world.
7. Do you like Jell -O?
I sort of do. Although I don’t like artificial colors and flavors. Jell-O is so much fun that I like it.
8. What are your thoughts on capitalism? (make it short or write a separate post if you have that many thoughts on it)
Well Capitalism, like Communism, seems to be engineering its own downfall. As the difference in incomes of the obscenely rich and the poverty stricken increases and as the wealth of the country gets concentrated more and more in the top 0.1% , (see: US wealth inequality – top 0.1% worth as much as the bottom 90% at: http://www.theguardian.com/business/2014/nov/13/us-wealth-inequality-top-01-worth-as-much-as-the-bottom-90) I don’t think this is supportable in a society that purports to be a Democracy, I think the Capitalist system is preparing for its own downfall.
9.Who is your favourite musician/band/musical artist?
Well, for Classical music, it’s definitely Mozart. And for pop music, it’s Madonna, Bruno Mars haha and I like Pitbull and 50 Cent as well, haha sorry but I do 🙂 Oh and Kathleen Battle has a miraculous voice! (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma_Y91u05Lw)
10. Having done all this work, would you ever accept another award?
Absolutely, I really like nominating bloggers for this award and bringing attention to their blogs. And I also liked being asked my opinion on things, it’s nice to be able to voice your opinion!
