Mystery Blogger Award Nomination

I have been nominated for this award by the brilliant and very funny Britchy one 

Weird Ass Wednesdays and The Mystery Blogger

Please go and see her blog and have a read.

“The Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

The Rules:
1) Thank whoever nominated you and include link to their blog

2) Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well

3) Tell your readers 3 things about yourself

4) Answer the questions from the person who nominated you

5) Nominate 10-20 bloggers you feel deserve the award (I am going to break this rule, because as my pal Britchy One, quite rightly says, it doesn’t make you feel special when you are one in 20. I will nominate about 8. I think that’s a good number)

6) Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice with one weird or funny one

7) Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog


Three things about me:

  1. I was born and bred in the English county of Essex. Some of you may have heard nasty things about the people from this county. Well, as with all generalisations, it might have a point….I’m biased though.
  2. I went to University in Aberystwyth in Wales, which means I have a huge soft spot for Wales. I also love Welsh cakes and Bara Brith – I may post recipes if people are interested…
  3. I suffer from many phobias. You name it, and I’m probably scared of it.


Answers to questions set by

1. You’re on an airplane. There’s an empty seat next to you and just as they’re about to close the doors a last minute passenger scampers in. He makes his way down the aisle to the only vacant seat, the aisle seat next to you. You look up and realise with horror that it’s…… who is it and why is it so dreadful?

Virtually any politician you can name. Politicians are a pretty loathsome bunch in general and I can’t really think of any I would want to sit next to. I can think a few dead ones, but none living.

2. If you could choose between changing the clocks forward and backward twice a year or having sequenced traffic lights that actually worked – which would you change?

Actually I want to do away with daylight savings altogether and fix the UK on British Summertime all year round, sod the farmers, I think this hour forwards/hour backwards thing is just a farce. I would also want a device that turns the traffic signals green whenever I approach. 

3. What three subjects do you think should be taught in school?

a) I think Respect for each other and for different points of view should be taught.

b) I think that children should be taught about financial responsibility so that they never become victims of loan sharks. 

c) I think they should be taught philosophy, because whatever situation you find yourself in, there is an ancient Greek philosopher who said something useful about it.

4. Which would you prefer to have in your car, heated seats or parking sensors if you could only have one?

I want a car that will fire missiles at people who cut me up or move lanes or turn without using their indicators.

5. If you could change the law would you have the death sentence or not and if yes, for what crimes?

This is all very serious…This is one of those questions that has an answer ‘in principle’ and one ‘in practice’. In Principle I would like all serial criminals to undergo psychoanalysis to see if they are psychopaths. If they are, then they should receive the death penalty in order to protect the rest of us. They will never be a functioning human being with empathy so they will remain a danger to society. Also serial rapists, murderers, those that incite acts of violence and terrorists should all be subject to the death penalty. In practice however, there have been so many instances where the process has failed and innocent people have been convicted for crimes they did not commit, that this means I am not so sure about the whole thing. 

Agatha Christie said something about Crime and justice that I think is important:

I always have a great deal more sympathy with the innocent victims of crimes, the people who are burgled, the mugged, the stabbed and murdered than I ever would the perpetrators of crime. They had a choice.

Gosh Far too serious….

Here are a few jokes to lighten the mood….

Q: What do lawyers wear to court?
A: Lawsuits!

 – We live in a society where pizza gets to your house before the police do.

 – A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

My Questions:

  1. What has been the most unexpected benefit you’ve found in Blogging
  2. What type of jokes do you find funny? Tell one of your favourites.
  3. Would you choose a holiday/vacation to a hot beach or a cool forest?
  4. If you were stuck on a desert island, what book would you like to have with you?
  5. What animal do you have the closest affinity with and why?

Ok and my Nominees are:

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  2. LOVE # 4 – cars with missiles. And as horrible as I would be at using them – my hubby and daughter would be MUCH worse! Thank you for the nomination as well. As soon as I get done with my Dr Seuss Quote challenge I am all over this one! Excuse me now while I go find my most favorite corny joke for question # 2!
