I have been nominated for the Liebster Award Post by a Ugandan in denial, Her Majesty Lady Sinawolicious. The questions gave me sleepless nights and I have been scratching my head without remorse. But first I want to know, who is Liebster and didn’t his friends in primary school bully him and call him Lobster? Any who….
Rules of the game
A blogger can nominate up to 10 other bloggers, then create a post announcing the nomination. The nominated bloggers should have less than 3,000 followers. The first blogger then asks 10 questions to these bloggers. If the nominated bloggers accept, ten they create their own post accepting the nomination and linking back to the first blogger, answering the 10 questions, then nominating more bloggers and asking a new set of questions. The award keeps getting passed on so that readers can discover new blogs.
What makes you smile without fail?
Staring at baby pictures and videos on google has got to be the most emotion evoking thing in the entire world! When the Kampala heat sits in my medulla and I scarse can reason any more, I say hello to google and smile my way to 6:00pm.
What’s your favorite thing to do when you are all alone?
I would say pray but ya’ll won’t believe me. At midnight when there’s nobody else in the house and slumber unfriends me hmmmm you know that disease where people cut themselves and bleed and enjoy the pain blah blah blah? Yeah, I do the same but to my clothes. Yes, I get my clothes and I rip them apart in futile attempts to redesign them and tickle my creative muscle. It’s such a disease and it bruises my wardrobe much but oh well, my wardrobe’s loss is the kitchen floor’s gain so…
When was the last time you felt proud of your blog?
There was this day, I got so many shares for this personal article I wrote at a very distraught midnight hour. Sometimes when I scribble my jibberish and share it on the internet, am like this is exposing me too much people are probably going to roll their eyes and I specifically felt this way about this thingini I wrote but alas, shares and comments caught me off guard, I even got my first reblog on this one!
I started hearing Lupe Fiasco singing Superstar in my ear so loud and then suddenly my feet fell into Cinderella’s shoes, I caught myself wearing this Stella Mcartney dress, and then I was on a red carpet and everybody wanted my autograph, it all happened too fast! ..and then the office phone rang and I returned to my ‘travel advisor’ duties, until next time.
If you took me out on a friend/bae date, what would we do?
This really depends, but if we click that well, let’s just say, we would make such a mess of our handkerchiefs both with tears from laughter and other emotional discussions. I would sincerely bore you with my most legit story about how I fell down in the literature class because I was picking up a pencil from the floor and everybody near fled the room because they thought….hmmm, now you there’s this thing in Uganda people like to call being,’ demon possessed’!
Also, We would rewatch A walk to remember and cry.
We would re-watch ‘The notebook’ and cry
We would re-watch ‘The Fault in our Stars’ and cry.
Honestly, am quite hideous!
Have you ever left someone you still loved?
Yeah, there was this dog called Beauty which I had to leave in Mbale because I had to come to Kampala and look for money to buy her more dog food. It was so painful!
What is your greatest talent?
I knit so well! I am like a knitting maestro, also as earlier mentioned, nobody destroys clothes any better than I do. I also have this talent where I walk into a job interviews through the door and words fly out through the window.
I also scribble quite pointlessly.
Is galavanting on youtube a talent? No? Okay.
What is the biggest secret you’ve kept from your parents?
Dear Lobster sorry I mean Liebster, if mummy don’t know then what makes you feel more privileged than her? Anyway, am not too secretive, I’ve never murdered a man, I’ve never escaped from school, Jesus found me too early in life, Hallelujah!
Besides me of course, which writer would you like to meet in real life?
Only you Sinawo, only you!
I would like to meet C.S Lewis but he already went to be with the Lord and when I go to heaven, me and him are going to have an everlasting friendship. Of the ones on earth, I would like to meet Jodi Piccoult and Francine Rivers.
What’s the last attractive thing you did to attract a crush?
Hmm, do we really want to go there? Guys, I fall for people, literally! I see a guy and weak knees betray my stamina. Let’s go to the next question.
If you could read minds, whose would you like to read the most?
I would say Christ but seeing as I already have the mind of Christ, I will settle for Shonda Rhimes.
What is top on your bucket list?
Seeing all the seven wonders of the world is number one.
*Drum rolls with evil laugh in background*
