Awards Post: Well, Aren’t We Just a Snuggly Ball of Sunshine? (Wait, Don’t Actually Try to Snuggle a Ball of Literal Sunshine)

Long overdue, but better late than clever, eh?

There’s this thing called the Sunshine Blogger Award. And recently, Melissa over at Single Mom Unschooling thought we were fit for such a thing. And so did Kate of Plethoric Thoughts fame. (Joke’s on them). And then Lauren dropped a couple award bombs on me of the Versatile and Blogger Recognition variety. (Did I get them all? Whew.) Lowest form of wit aside, Moose and Michelle are always floored when other bloggers think of us when passing along these blog awards. These are always such a good way to discover new blogs and to share a handful of blogs that we ourselves enjoy! So let’s create a mash-up awards post of Frankenstein-ian glory:

Sunshine Blogger Award | The Lonely Tribalist

Here are the “rules”:

  • Thank the person/people who nominated you
  • Answer the questions from your nominator(s)
  • Nominate other bloggers and give them  11 questions to answer
  • Inform your nominees with a pingback and/or by dropping a comment on their blog!

As always, if nominated, you are by no means obligated to participate. Just know that it means Moose and I have enjoyed reading your blog! And you can pick any or all three of the awards to take – it’s all the same to us. Now, let’s get this thing rolling.

  2. Ahhh! Thank you so much for the nod! I’m beyond ecstatic!
    Questions answered … 😀

    1. Probably start crying because I’m a spice weeny and wouldn’t be able to handle it.
    2. TEAM RON F*CKING SWANSON
    3. Thinking of original content. Oh, and remembering to actually post!
    4. One of those Starbucks Bistro Boxes with the PB&J sandwiches. Sure Can!
    5. First kiss was in my car in the Applebees parking lot.
    6. Somewhere in England or Scotland looking out at the amazing view with a hot cup of cocoa and a good book. Oh, and Chris Evans!
    7. Enough money to not have to work and be able to do what I wanted. To be able to lose weight and not have to work out or eat right, because that’s lame. And Chris Evans!
    8. People who are obsessed with their second amendment rights and LOVE their guns.
    9. A Diva
    10. Sadly, not very far from where I’m at now. #workinprogress
    11. I don’t listen to that idiot…

  3. Hah! Why thanks for considering me. Here’s my answers then:

    1. If I were to tell you I’d give you $1 million for drinking an entire bottle of sriracha, what would you do?
    -Mix it in with milk, Chiles have substance called capseicin, which is neutralised with Milk, which contains casein. Yeah, science!

    2. Team Michael Scott or Team Ron F*cking Swanson?
    -I’ll go with Ron, because he reminds me of grumpy cat.

    3. What’s the worst part about blogging?
    -At times it feels like you’re screaming into the void, and you don’t quite know whether anyone’s paying attention. However, a strange force compels you to keep going

    4. What was the last thing you ate (and can you get me some)?
    -I just had a very Turkish meal, with hummus, cheese and bread. Fitting as I’m in Turkey, and you’ll have to pry the hummus from my cold, dead hands

    5. Where was your first kiss? (Or where would you like your first kiss? Come on, mama likes detail.)
    -Under a girl whilst butt naked on a bed whilst travelling, lost my virginity before I got my first kiss hehe.

    6. Where would you rather be right now, if time, responsibilities, or money weren’t issues?
    -I want to do a “historical journey” where I start in the steppes of Africa, where humanity started, and then I want to make my way through the important archaeological sites, in chronological order.

    7. Three wishes: What would you like?
    -Tough choices haha, I’ll keep it realistic as otherwise it just devolves into me trying to get infinite wishes through a loophole:

    I. Enough cash so that I don’t have to work anymore and live comfortably whilst living a nomadic lifestyle.
    II. Total control over my thoughts, feelings and actions.
    III. Health

    8. What is one thing about your country you wish you could change?
    -I never quite clicked with Mexican culture, which is why I moved out first chance I got. I kinda wish I had more in common with the average Mexican in terms of life perspective

    9. What’s something you wanted to be when you were a kid?
    Emperor of humanity, I’m not joking, I had great ambitions haha

    10. Where do you see yourself a year from now?
    Hopefully not dead in a ditch somewhere, alive and well working in Europe.

    11. Final inquiry: Favorite Donald Trump quote?
    I’ll go with a classic and say that “you’re fired” =)
