7D/7A – Am I Not Lovely, So Say?


Yes, day number one starts here. Dear, sweet Murasaki Mugen over at Murasaki Mugen’s Blog nominated me for One Lovely Blog Award a while back and I am very grateful and flattered to be receiving this. Thank you! You should check out MM’s blog, there is a lot of goodies; anime reviews and lessons in Japanese to mention some. This last week this amazing person has made top 20 lists of various kinds like favorite anime, favorite arch and stuff and I am really impressed. Me, I can’t even manage to make a top five list. So yeah, hustle over and check this awesome blog out right this instance.

The rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link their blog
  2. Add the One Lovely Blog Award to your post
  3. Share 7 things about yourself
  4. Pass this on to as many people as you like
  5. Include this set of rules
  6. Inform your nominees

I am gonna break the rules this week and not pass on any of the awards (probably, unless your name isΒ shaddowcat99. I have to live up to my threatΒ promise to nominate them for every award I ever get. So yeah, there’s that.)

Seven things, how fitting for the start of this week. Now, what to tell you that you don’t know? πŸ€”

1. I got a Donald Duck plushie on my first birthday from my maternal grandmother. I still sleep with it. (I also sleep with a teddy bear I got from my paternal grandmother and a Snoopy plushie. But the cat is banned from the bedroom at night.)

2. My favorite director of all times is Quentin Tarantino and my favorite movie of his is Reservoir Dog. There is no scene in the history of the modern movie that is better than that of mr Blonde and the tortured cop.

3. I have a MacBook air I love but I secretly wish it would break so I can buy a pc instead only because I want to play boys love visual novels. There are so many more games for pc than mac.


4. I love vegetables but I never eat them because I think it’s too much of a hassle to prepare them. I am more of a macaroni and ketchup kind of person.

5. I don’t eat chicken. People mostly think it is because of some ethical point of view but I just don’t like the taste anymore. I used to and then one day it just tasted like, well, chicken and my mouth went yuck. So yeah, sometimes when I visit my parents I get gravy and rice/potatoes because my mom is stubborn in her mission to make me eat chicken again. Yeah, no chicken for me. But, she likes to prepare vegetables so it’s a status quo of sorts going there.

6. Whenever I watch MMA (mixed martial arts or, for you who are totally not interested, guys (and gals) who beat the crap out of each other for the glory and a fuck load of money) I always imagine the two guys (sorry girls) start to make out in the middle of the octagon during the match and instead of fighting they start to fuck. Yeah, call me rotten or whatever, I am me. But you got to admit, it would be way better with a good fuck than getting the crap beaten out of you. (I guess it would apply to the girls as well if you are into that.)

Close enough 😎

7. I got blocked thrice on Twitter by one of the more famous journalists in this country. Yeah, I am pretty proud of it actually because he is a narcissistic douche bag and if I can get him to be angry or annoyed with me to the extend that he blocks me then that is a good thing. What baffles me is that he unblocked me twice.

Bonus: I have written a very poetic letter to Tom Hiddleston.

Yup, that’s all for now. I’ll see you tomorrow. Shadow, you know the drill, this is the first of seven. Consider yourself nominated.

  1. Well..I think I should start every one of these posts with: congrats on the award, but considering this would have to be my opening line for seven comments, that would get boring soon. Sooooooo: this is lovely…..(oh come on…you knew that pun would be coming right? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
    I got an ET plushy back in the 80’s that I still own. Am not sleeping with it anymore..but I still love that plushy to death (and it was quite adorable too). Mac and ketchup huh? I love pastas pretty much every day of the week…so really not a bad choice.
    As for chicken though….hmmmmmmm…πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” I do still love that, can’t help it.
    Also…that Bonus was wonderful: have you sent it to him yet? And if so…did he answer?
    Anyways I already look forward to the next few awards posts! This was a seriously fun idea to do this week 😊😊

    1. I love my Donald, he means the world to me. 😊 (the other two, especially the teddy bear, do to of course but my maternal grandmother and I had a special bond) ET is the best alien in the world. πŸ‘½

      Well, not sure just how healthy it is to eat pasta and ketchup though. πŸ™„

      Yup, I did send it and nope, he never answered because I never wrote my adress on it. I didn’t want an answer I just wanted him to know how much I appreciated his work. That damn letter took days to write.


    1. Hehe, I sort of suspected it would come to this. 😎

      Actually, I think it was his big ego that was the biggest reason it came to all those blockings.

      The first one wasn’t my doing at all. I just happened to be friends with his arch enemy (yeah, it’s on that level. πŸ™„ My friend is a journalist and he sort of calls this guy out pretty often and I suppose he called him out one to many times so he snapped and blocked more or less everyone who followed my friend and had some sort of conversation with him.)

      The second time I was engaged in a conversation with mr journalist about migration I think (read muslims) when he laid out some less pleasant views and less correct facts and when I called him out on them he blocked me.

      The third time he just acted completely deranged and by that time more or less everyone was convinced he was nothing more than trolling us so I sort of wrote one line from a very popular song about a troll and her little troll kids. It’s a children’s lullaby. Yup, he couldn’t take it and thus I was once again blocked. He cannot take a joke.

      So, he is a very narcissistic man who several times have been assigned pretty serious jobs like when a guy in his early 20s walked into a school and attacked students with a knife and killed and hurt several of them. He had the good taste of uploading a picture that same night, after covering that event, of him having a beer and writing some tasteless comment about doing a good job creating good headlines. He has rented helicopters to fly over the ocean when there has been submarines spotted just so he can have all the attention. That made a bigger headline than the submarine itself. Yeah, the list goes on and on… Also, he is a sucky journalist but his boss apparently likes him and his shady, racist opinions.

      1. I’m not sure where this journalist is based but more and more news is about entertainment rather than actual journalism so these types of characters seem to pop up. It’s a shame. Good on you for having some fun

      2. He is supposed to be a proper journalist but right now it seems he lives for sensationalism instead of real journalism. Clickbait is more his forte I believe. Ugh it bothers me because people listen to his crap.
