Your not-so-ordinary Liebster Award


Well the other day many days ago I received 2 Liebster  awards from two really kind ladies (Thanks Daisy and Jessie!!). Basically the only award that I am capable of winning fairly is this of procrastination. Seriously, it took me 2 months to answer. Great job dude.

The real rules, the ones that you should follow in these chain-awards are:

  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
  3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post. (they should have less than 200 followers to take part)
  4. Go to their page and tell them.
  5. No tag backs! (Fair enough!)

BUT, due to my restricted free time, I will kinda mix the rules a little bit .

I will answer to the questions that will deliver the most embarrassing answers (for me) from both girls and I will set a new list of question and bloggers that are awarded by me. So...

1. What is the wierdest YouTube video you have ever watched? (by Daisy ) >> The finalists are surely the Ghetto Dora the Explorer 1 and 2

(They summarize perfectly the stupidity of this animation, thanks for making these! ) and "La ranita" (PLEASE focus on HIS total appearance. ). Sure I have plenty more, but maybe another time.

2. What is your favorite season? (by Jessie ) >> Spring. Hands down.

3. What is your favorite holiday? (by Jessie ) >> Without a second thought. Christmas!

4. What is your favorite book? (by Daisy ) >> My favorite book is in my bookcase, which have plenty of my favorite books, so I can't find it. I will name as two let's-say-representative examples, the Parrot's Theorem by Denis Guedj and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzerald.

5. What noise do you find more annoying? (by Daisy) >> Any repeated, shrill, intense noise while I am sleeping can be really annoying to me. Especially, if it's the reason that I waked up.

6. In a parallel universe, what type of person would you be? (by Jessie ) >> The first thought that came in my mind is a Jedi. You know Star Wars and stuff. So I won't change it with something more thoughtful and complex.

7. If you could live inside any book, which would it be? (by Jessie ) >> Imagine that a strange creature, decides that this answer of mine could come true and I would be transferted at once in this book's universe. And imagine also that I was thinking a book like 1984 or The Pianist, because "it would be so sore to live in these times, especially when you have already experienced the privilege of your speech freedom " And tsoup! Here I am in these books. Totally surreal (?).

8. Which is your favorite kind of tea? (by Daisy ) >>  The linden, the chamomile and the black tea. With one tea spoon of honey or homemade jam in it. Bliss!

9. What inspires you to blog? (by Daisy ) >> The need to write down my thoughts. Haven't you ever felt that you just have to take them out of your head? Oh and the happy feeling of sharing things that I made or found. And meeting new people that I couldn't even imagine that they could exist if I didn't blog.

10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? (by Daisy ) >>

My dream is to go to Australia and South America for sure. BUT, in case I could go anywhere in the whole world, I would first explore every tiny place on that rock that we call our planet. And then who knows? Maybe I would be so overwhelmed by all these places and I would decide that living in Greece is the best option of all. Or not. I don't know.

11. What super power would you want to have? Why? (by Jessie ) >> The power of... OK, you messed with my mind now. I was capable of listing around ten super powers that I would like to have, but now that I have "the power to choose" one and only one, I can't.

Now, my precious tags: Curlicue // Lauryn Green // Joy Felicity Jane // sea, field and tribe // Amanda by the Bay // My Dodo Diary // Wanderlust // Can Soup Lover // Frankly Vic // Don't Feed The Birds // Bone Lace

And here are the superb quest -ions I made for them:

1. Where do you imagine that a quest for ions could take place?

2. You have to abandon your favorite habit. Which one will be?

4. Favorite book's character of yours?

5. What are the imaginary creatures that you never believed that they were imaginary and that they really exist?

6. What is your biggest passion?

7. Which is adventure that you desperately wish to wait you behind the door? (Not literally. )

8. Name one big fear of yours.

9. The best thing that happened to you today is...

10. A famous huge company sends some volunteers to the orbit of the Earth to shoot a new ad. Would you do that for all the money of this world?

11. Aaand the big lame question: With which movie's character would you have an affair?

{My question have no consistency between them or what? Anyway, in case you take some time to participate, please write below in the comments the link of your post so that I can check it out! :) }

I wish you the best possible week! Cya.
