The One About the Award

Gossip_Grl is giving out the Liebster Award.
On my award page, I have one, but it's a different Liebster so it's all good.

In order to accept the award, the honored(me) is supposed to answer a list of questions asked by the honorer.

Here we go-

 1. Have you ever played a drinking game? (alcohol or non alcohol) If so, which one?
If I have it has been so long that I don't remember. Though I do believe if I played one using uh and um as the drinking word, I would be drunk off my ass almost constantly.  

2. Have you ever laughed so hard you snorted or worse yet, wet yourself? Tell me about it.
No, that would be completely unladylike. And you know me. Always a lady.

3. Have you ever had to go so bad you went to an opposite gender public bathroom?
Of course. Got odd looks, but then others followed my lead. Women need more stalls. Technically men have twice as much pee potential space as women because of the urinals. That's just not right since we have a uterus that presses on our bladder making us have to pee A LOT more.  

4. Have you ever been kicked out of Chuck E. Cheese?
Is that even possible? That would be nice though.

5. Tell me about the worse boss you ever had.
I had one that would sit up in her office that overlooked the store and just watched everyone. Thankfully my department was children's shoes and there was one spot back there that you could hide and not get seen.


 6. What was the craziest question you were asked at a job interview?
If I knew that the drug test only detected over a certain level. No, I didn't know that. It didn't matter. I never got to take the test.

7. Have you ever had an argument with a coworker at work?
No.


8. Why did you leave your last job?
When you dread just the thought of walking into work and you feel like your sanity is going, that might be a good time to leave. I thought so anyway. 

9. Have you ever went to a job interview after having a few shots?
I am going to guess shots of alcohol and not heroin. Either way, the answer is no. When I was pretty young, I did get pretty drunk before an interview and just never went to the interview.

10. Have you ever protested? Burned a bra or underwear at a protest?
I've signed online petitions.That is as far as it goes.

11. Are you finished with your Christmas Shopping?
Maybe. If you count getting a tree,definitely not. Pretty much for my husband and daughter. I have to get baking supplies for gifts for others. 

I guess I need to ask some questions.

1. What's your favorite holiday?
2. What is your biggest pet peeve?
3. If you could be any animal in the world what would it be and why?
4. Do you cook and if so what is your specialty?
5. What is your favorite season?
6. What part of the world do you live in?
7. What is you dream job?
8. Do you have your dream job?
9. How fast do you write a blog post? Do you spend hours and lots of research or do you just crank one out?
10. Do you have any superstitions and what are they?
11. Are you finding this as fun as I?

In Gossip_Grl fashion, I am leaving this Liebster award for you to take along with answering the questions I have asked.
If you answer them, let me know so I don't miss reading the answers.

  2. Great answers, but let me just say that you've had some WEIRD job and job-search related experiences. ;-)

    I won't have time to answer on my blog this week, but I'll answer here, if you want to read it.

    1. What's your favorite holiday?
    Mmm... I'm assuming you're referring to the day... I actually prefer Christmas eve. That's when everything is at its most exciting. I don't know, Christmas day itself actually tends to feel anti-climactic for me. :-/

    2. What is your biggest pet peeve?
    Depends on the time of the year. Right now, it's tourist-grocery shoppers.

    3. If you could be any animal in the world what would it be and why?
    Mmm... wolf. I just love the family dynamics and how they're at their strongest working as a unit.

    4. Do you cook and if so what is your specialty?
    Yes on occasion. I prefer to bake, though, which is why my speciality is peach cobbler in season and chocolate fondant always.

    5. What is your favorite season?
    Winter. I live in a coastal town with rainy winters. Excellent writing and reading weather. And since I work from home, I don't even need to worry about getting wet.

    6. What part of the world do you live in?
    Southern Hemisphere, South Africa, near Cape Town.

    7. What is you dream job?
    The one I have right now.

    8. Do you have your dream job?
    Yep.

    9. How fast do you write a blog post? Do you spend hours and lots of research or do you just crank one out?
    Mmm... somewhere between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on whether I struggle with what I'm trying to say. Usually I just crank posts out, because I write them about what I know/feel.

    10. Do you have any superstitions and what are they?
    Nope. Unless you count that I prefer drafting using a specific pen (with black ink) that can't be used for anything or by anyone else.

    11. Are you finding this as fun as I?
    Oh yeah. I love writing comments about myself. :-P

    1. Misha, thanks for answering! I love anything peach. Yum!
      I am that way writing posts too. If it takes too long to figure out, it feels like a struggle and maybe it isn't a good day to write. :)

  3. I used to play a drinking game called "Pass Out." The "winner" wins a hangover.
    I'm sticking with "Risk" nowadays.

    1. Pass Out isn't too fun. People do things to you.
