This award is one of the coolest around. I feel honoured to receive yet another nomination from Eric. I mean, he’s not just Eric the American-Canadian Dad. He is also most of WP bloggers favourite Daddy Bloggers around.
And just when I thought that we have been a little dry on awards, there came a pingback. Thank you Eric for the nomination.
The rules state that I need to thank the person who nominated me. (Done!) Then I need to answer some questions, give some facts, nominate some others and give them some questions to answer. So here goes with the questions given to me. So here we go:
How do you re-energize?Sleep. Lots of sleep! As well as long walks and having a quiet time of my own.
What yearly salary would you consider “living comfortably”?This is a hard one. I suppose the best answer is “It depends”. As in it depends on what comfortable means to each one and where living comfortably would be. In the Netherlands, the average nett mean personal income that’s enough to get by would be about €25K-€26K annually. I suppose if there are no financial commitments €30K-35K would be reasonably comfortable. That’s 978K THB in Thailand which makes for a VERY comfortable lifestyle and in Singapore that’s just slightly breathable. Sheesh! I could write an entire post on this!
If you met Mother Theresa, what would you ask her? What’s her biggest secret and confession?
What ice cream flavor do you think your personality is like?Chocolate Mint: Not the most popular but always there to weather the storm and dependable.
If your car had a super power, what super power would you like it to have?A huge layer of protective shield will appear in emergencies to ensure that the passengers are safe an dsound in case of accidents. Much like Violet Parr in The Incredibles.
Do you have a plan for your blog for the long run?Does planning to keep writing count as a plan?
Is there a word you avoid using? A word you don’t like?I try to avoid saying the eff word especially in front of the kids. I don’t like the words “I don’t know!”
Do you have a favorite word?Hmmm…Dammit!
If we communicated by playing musical instruments, what instrument would you communicate with?The Bass Guitar.
Is there a time when something didn’t turn out the way it was supposed to, but in the end you were glad that it didn’t?Yes and Yes!
What’s the best piece of advice you would give a new blogger?Blog authentically and always reach out to other bloggers often by leaving comments on their blogs or share their pieces. Most of all, play nice.
Next step: 11 “interesting” facts about myself (2 of which I took wholesale from Eric and the one is the exact opposite)

I’m terrible at sucking up
I can roll my tongue and I can flip it both directions
I can also tie a cherry stalk with my tongue in no time at all!
love it when it rains
I’ve never come face-to-face with a Tornado in action (not like I ever would want to)
I’m a concert junkie
I don’t know how to skate
I’m a better listener than I am a talker
Making small talks tire me out
I’m grumpy in the morning
Now to nominate 11 bloggers, I thought I’d give a shout-out to my most recent followers; not only for clicking on that follow me button, but for doing all that they do:
