Hello there inmates!

You’ll never guess what happened! I got nominated for the Liebster award again! I’m very seriously considering creating a category on the blog dedicated to these things, i know i said it last time but i truly might. This time i have been nominated by Rami Ungar The Writer, a gentleman if i ever saw one. Apologies to Rami for leaving this response so very late! He is another great horror writer and also has some interesting reviews. Go check out his blog, you won’t be disappointed.

So, here are the rules for the nomination from Rami:

1. Write 11 random facts about myself.
2. Answer 11 questions Rami came up for me.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers.
4. Come up with 11 questions for my nominees.

So, here’s some random facts about me i suppose:

1. I once forgot where i lived. I don’t know what happened but i finished school and just couldn’t remember. My friends had to show me.

2. I once wished i could become a video game designer. I don’t think i really have the ability to do it though. I’m quite happy with writing now.

3. I really hate riding in cars.

4. Even though i don’t like being in water, i adore being on boats. I actually often wish i could get a job on a yacht or a water bus.

5. I once got called Johnny Depp. I don’t see the resemblance at all. Not even the slightest bit.

6. My favorite color is dark green.

7. I have an unhealthy obsession with hats. Top hats in particular.

8. I have no real political views at all. I prefer to stay out of all of that.

9. I once got my head closed in a car door. I sometimes wonder if that’s when the voices started. Haha!

10. I really like Steampunk music.

11. I’ve only ever watched one band live. That band was the Shanklin Freak show.


Right, now i have to answer the questions that Rami asked in his post:

What is your favorite genre of fiction?
It would have to be high fantasy. I love big monsters, armies and huge battles and the like. I’m also quite partial to horror and historical fantasy.
What scares you the most?
If it had to be anything it would be water. I’m not a fan.
When you were growing up, what did you want to be when you were an adult?
I wanted to be a video game designer, i loved video games then and now. There was also a bizarre patch where i wanted to be a priest despite not being religious. The mind boggles.
If you could hang out with one superhero for a day, who would you pick and why?
It would have to be Batman. Simply because i can undermine him so the Joker can win. Wink wink!
What is your pet peeve?
Cats. Hate the damn overgrown rats.
What is something you never thought you’d end up doing but you found yourself doing it?
To be honest, blogging. I never ever expected that i would be trying to get my writing out into the world.
What do you look for in a potential romantic partner?
I think it would be a little bit pointless to answer this. I have Lee. Haha!
What is something you wish you could change about yourself?
If it had to be anything, probably my height. I don’t really fancy being short all my life.
What is something you’d like to do before you’re 80?
See Steam Powered Giraffe or Poets of the Fall live.
What is your fondest childhood memory?
This is a difficult one to answer as i remember very little about my childhood. It would have to be meeting my group of friends for the first time. I’m still friends with most of them now, over 15 years later.
If you found a large brown spider crawling up your leg right now, how would you most likely react?
I’d most likely squash it. Spiders don’t bother me. I’m not violent i swear! Haha!

Now i need to nominate 11 other bloggers for the award. Here goes.
