The Liebster


I’m generally not one for these things, but I like to try new things once in a while. Many thanks to Tumbling Words for the nomination! Without further ado, my answers to the questions posed to me:


1. Who is your favourite book character and why?

I’d have to go with Bill from Day of the Triffids. He’s a good, stand-up kind of guy, and just does sensible, believable things in an end-of-the-world scenario. And John Wyndham is a great writer.


2. Are you a ‘cup half full’ or ‘cup half empty’ person?

It depends on the day. The cup always is, at least, so that’s a bonus.


3. Who scares you more, Trump or Clinton?

I’m neither in, nor from, the U.S., so Trump.


4. What is your favourite comfort food?

Macaroni with lots of cheese and lots of ketchup.


5. Which piece of music lifts your spirits?

Bach: Art of the Fugue, and David Myles and Classified: Inner Ninja


6. What is your middle name?

I have a few.


7. What is your favourite quote?

I’m not a big quote person; I generally think it takes a bit more words than a typical quote to really express something well.


8. Do you believe there is something after death?

A complicated question. Yes and no.


9. Which period in history would you most like to live in?

I like the current one. Every time I read of anything, oh, pre-1950s, they always seem to be more sickly, more lice- and bug-infested.


10. Who/what do you love most in your life?

I’m married, so my partner is pretty much the bee’s knees.


11. What makes you cry, and why?

Ill-considered people, bad drivers, anti-vaxxers, and a host of other social sadnesses.

  1. Aww thanks for the nomination! Nice to know a bit more about you. I have a few of these awards swept under the rug or lost in a cabinet somewhere so it’s unlikely I’ll get around to sharing my own post about it anytime soon. In the meantime, count my comments as proof that I sincerely do enjoy your blog immensely 🙂

  2. Wow – I got nominated. What a great surprise. 🙂
    Congratulations on becoming an ‘Award Winning’ site. I enjoyed your clever responses which provided a great insight to the writer I’ve always enjoyed reading.
