Real Neat Blog Award

I’ve been nominated by dissociatethat, a personal blog on the subject of mental health and illness. I don’t tend to do this because it reminds me of the time I won an Academy Award and I hadn’t even made a movie. I made it through, but only after calling to the stage and thanking a lot of equally bewildered people.

Rules are:

Display the award logo
Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog
Answer the questions of the one who nominated you
Nominate some bloggers
Ask them seven questions

My Answers

What Country would you like to visit and why ? Norway. Because I’m a big lover of Eduard Munch; plus, I’d like to visit a nation where everyone is as depressed as I am.

What was the last book/film that captivated you and why? Book: Haruki Murakami’s Killing Commendatore. Film: Guy Ritchie’s Revolver. It examines the psyche of a man who was in solitary confinement for six years AND we get to see what Jason Stathom might look like with hair.

Who made you the best Dinner ever, and What was it? The Inn at Little Washington. A four-star restaurant in Northern Virginia. I had squab and rabbit tart. The meal cost over four hundred dollars (anniversary after selling our house) and flushing it down the toilet the next day almost made me cry…

Did you ever have a Dream come true and was it anything like you imagined it to be? The worst thing that can happen to you is for your dreams to come true.

Why did you start your blog ? I couldn’t get anyone else to start it.

If you could take one thing/occurrence out Of the history of Mankind what would it be? Why? The invention of sewer systems. Before they were invented, when the cops knocked at your door, you had nothing to flush your drugs down…

Did the current situation around the Pandemic have any positive side effect on your Life? Can you give an example? Literally none. I caught the virus early on and had a miserable time. I don’t get any exercise and I’m trapped in the house with the best cook I know… ME!


Deb, always nominate Deb

Rivergirl, because she lives in Maine so she needs SOMETHING to do…

Joanne, because it might take her mind off of vampires for a few minutes

George, because I like the novella he’s been working on

Mister Muse because he likes old jazz like any sane person

and LW just because he comes up with something interesting and factual roughly daily

      1. I don’t watch many new movies either… just the superhero ones. I just like the special effects and have been waiting for them my whole life…


  2. Flushing a $400 meal down the toilet must have been a bittersweet experience. On the one hand…. wait. I’m not sure I want to go there.
    I won’t thank you for the nomination because I don’t usually thank the people who drop a curse on me. Except for that Haitian witch doctor, he was really creative. I still can’t figure out how to stop that ear hair from growing.
