CREATIVE BLOGGER AWARD QUADRA KILL!
I’ve been nominated for a Creative Blogger Award by *deep breath* Muranodo of Otaku Academia, Krystallina of Daiyamanga, Lazarinth of Fantasy and Anime and Cassidy Cornblatt of Funny Anime Pics. Thank you all very much for your nominations, and don’t worry this isn’t some rinky-dink ‘one ring response to rule them all’ thing. I am doing every one of your award posts in an ultra award THROWDOWN!
Before we get started with this little project, let’s go over the rules of the award.
1 – Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
2 – Share 5 facts about yourself.
3 – Nominate 15-20 bloggers and add their links.
4 – Notify the bloggers you nominated.
5 – Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do!
Now let’s knockout our first award; I believe Krystallina of Daiyamanga nominated me first. Thank you very much for the nomination, and while the rules don’t indicate that the facts have to have a theme, someone who nominated me for this said it’d be better to have a theme and that does seem like it would spice up this mass award post so let’s start with facts from my childhood. Just basically start every entry with ‘When I was a kid…’
1 – ….I believed tomboys were an entirely different gender. I don’t know why I thought that, but the belief didn’t last long. I was pretty adamant about it for a while for some reason.
2 – …..I threw all of my sister’s nail polish out my window….at her. I don’t know why, but I was a pretty crappy shot either way. Most of the bottles ended up in the bush outside my house, only a few of them broke and only one hit my sister in the arm.
3 – …..I was obsessed with wearing a Chuck E. Cheese t-shirt. I would wear it every. Single. Day. To first grade. I would take it off to get it washed of course, but I wore it so often that apparently my teacher had voiced concerns to my parents over my home life. They explained everything, of course, and I soon had to give up my poor t-shirt because it was being washed and worn so often that the cheap t-shirt was wearing out and getting holes. RIP Chuck E. Cheese shirt.
4 – ….I once got so queasy/scared (?) on a Tilt-o-Whirl that my mom freaked out while watching me on the ride. She urged the operator to stop the ride, they did, I got off, and I have never ever gotten on another spinning ride ever again. I honestly only vaguely remember it, and I still don’t remember whether I was sick or scared, but I still just won’t go on spinning rides. No.
5 – ….I was a complete Nickelodeon nut, specifically Rugrats. If something had the Nickelodeon logo on it, I wanted it. My parents would constantly get me Rugrats stuff, and the first movie release I ever got excited over was Rugrats the First Movie. I even saw Rugrats Live! And I begged my parents to let me get braces so that I could get orange ones that spelled out ‘Nickelodeon’ (I saw it on Slime Time Live! And no, they didn’t let me even though I eventually developed a need for braces) My love lasted well into my teens and even now I still venture there, even if the quality of their shows has just gotten sad over the years. They may still get a gem every now and then, but their treatment of Korra really just made me ashamed of them as a company.
Second award up to bat was a nomination by Cassidy Cornblatt of Funny Anime Pics. Thank you very much for nominating me, and I have decided that the theme for this award post will be guilty pleasures.
1 – I like Batman and Robin and Batman Forever. Yes, they’re awful movies….really awful movies, but I both love them in a bad movie sense and in their send up to the 1966 Batman series as I am a huge fan of that series.
2 – I still love listening to the Backstreet Boys and N*Sync, yet I’m a huge hypocrite in basically instantly hating all current boy bands.
3 – I like Nickelback and Daughtry. They’re far from my favorite bands, but I still like their music most of the time. I honestly don’t get the massive hate on the former.
4 – I’m never able to catch it anymore, but I always liked watching Maury. The people act ridiculous and fake, the subjects are sometimes really dumb, but I do like watching to see who is and is not the father.
5 – I like Dog with a Blog. Hear me out; the show itself can actually be pretty funny. Ironically, I find the absolute worst aspect of the show to be the damn dog. No plotline with Stan is funny. No line that comes out of Stan’s mouth is funny, in fact most jokes are just pokes at the fact that HURR HURR He’s a dog! The fact that he has a blog isn’t even really a significant part of the show. It’s just there. It’s like they had a nice cast for a decent family sitcom, realized they didn’t have a hook and boom they tossed in a talking dog, realized that has been done to death, so they gave him a blog.
Third award up was nomination by Muranodo of Otaku Academia. Thank you very much for the nomination. I have decided that the theme for this one will be crushes on characters/celebrities through my life barring Zuko from Avatar the Last Airbender and Hatsuharu from Fruits Basket as I’ve already spoken of them previously.
1 – Billy from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. I had more Red and White Ranger stuff for some reason, but I have always had a crush on Billy from MMPR. In fact, I’d wager he was my first crush ever, though that’s questionable.
2 – Luke Skywalker from Star Wars. The Empire Strikes back was so good for Luke fanservice…..*cough* That aside, I’m not sure I really ever would’ve became a Star Wars fan at first if I never developed a crush on him. I love the series as a whole for a slue of reasons, but my crush still stands.
3 – Justin Bartha: the main reason why I grew to love National Treasure so much. You may also know him as that guy who is supposed to be the fourth best friend in the ‘wolf pack’ from The Hangover movies. You probably don’t though because his part is always extremely minor in those movies for some dumb reason.
4 – David Boreanaz: Bones, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. To be honest, when I first watched Buffy, I had a bit of a crush on Seth Green, and while I still do a little, my attention skewed almost entirely to David Boreanaz as Angel. I stalked him through the television box to Angel and quickly fell in love with Bones when I saw he starred in it, even though I don’t much care for the show anymore due to a mess of reasons.
5 – Misha Collins: Supernatural. I guess this counts as both because I have a crush on both him and his character of Castiel (And no I’m not the type who can’t differentiate between actor and character). He’s just such an awesome and hilarious guy.
Finally, my fourth nomination was given to me by Lazarinth of Fantasy and Anime. Thank you very much for your nomination, and I since I’m already spent on coming up with topics I have decided this one will be completely random facts.
1 – My favorite color is purple and I hate the color yellow.
2 – I was born with long jet black hair that eventually fell out and was later replaced by dirty blond hair until my hair turned brown in my teens. Apparently this is perfectly normal, but my parents still talk about it saying how I looked like a little Elvis.
3 – I have a four-inch birthmark on my left hand. My mother, thinking it was dirt, apparently tried furiously to scrub it off when I was a child, cleaning it with every safe cleaner she could get her hands on. It was only later when she realized that it was a birth mark. Also, I love my birth mark. It’s not in a special shape or anything (kinda like a boomerang or maybe Florida….I’m so good at descriptions) but I’d never think of having it removed.
4 – I was once knocked unconscious after falling off of a giant Onix made of snow that me and my class made. My teacher didn’t call the nurse, I got a big bruise on my butt and I only now realized that I am probably the only person alive to actually get knocked out by a Pokemon.
Similarly, I was once thrown several feet in front of my ATV after slamming it into a snow banking. The ATV wasn’t damaged, my parents never found out and I learned I am incredibly stupid for playing Chicken with a snow banking….
5 – My favorite season is Autumn for several reasons. The heat from summer is gone, and the cool breezes of fall return. The trees are insanely gorgeous. NO GODDAMN BUGS. Halloween. Thanksgiving. The various scents such as pumpkin, maple, spices etc. and horror movie marathons.
Well, that’s all I got for you guys this time. This was an awesome award post, and thanks again to everyone who nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award.
Speaking of nominations, the rules state that I have to nominate 15 – 20 blogs….which means, collectively, I’d have to put together 60 – 80 nominees....Yeah….yeah that’s not happening. But I did scour my list of blogs that I follow, tried to exclude those who are inactive and those who have done a lot of awards recently or done this award already/recently and gathered as many awesome nominees as possible for this. So, prepare yourselves, because here they are!
Grand total of 41. Can’t say I didn’t try. I’m also trying to keep track of people who either simply don’t want to partake in awards anymore or can’t for one reason or another. Additionally, any future awards, if I get any, will temporarily have no nominees as I’m a bit spent there for the time being.
And even if for some reason my nominees can’t partake in the award, visit their blogs anyway, as well as the blogs of my nominators, because gosh darn it they sure are nifty, and you’ll be nifty too for visiting them! And that’s just swell.
