2012 Inspiration Award
I am honored and humbled again to have been given this award by a fellow blogger! This one was given to me by the wonderful nothinginmynoggin who has a very good blog of her own about her struggles with mental health illnesses and it really is a candid and inspirational read.
She also called me “awesome” which always gets brownie points!
See her original post here
One thing I love about these awards is the questions that follow after as they are, for me at least, a great way of finding out interesting snippets of information that would not be found out in normal circumstances.
So here are the questions asked and my responses to them (I have missed out a question from the original post as it is about immigration in the US)
1. If you were a Disney character, who would you be?
I would say Woody from Toy Story as I am a leader of others, with a strong sense of loyalty to my friends. Like Woody I also have my insecurities about being replaced and forgotten.
From an entirely visual perspective I can’t help but notice the likeness between the real me and Milo Thatch from Atlantis have a look and see if you agree, It makes me laugh at least!

2. What was your 1st job?
My first paid job was working for waitrose supermarket in one of their stores. I was 15 doing my GCSE’s between shifts and it was one of the best jobs I have had. It was basically a social club with so many students working there.
3. If you had to live in a so called “3rd world country,” which would it be?
I currently live in a “3rd World Country” The way the UK is falling apart we will soon be described as one!
To be honest I couldn’t see myself living in a 3rd world country but I would like to visit the places in Africa where events like Comic Relief have worked to see how it has benefited from aid given by so many people or whether it has gone to waste.
4. Coen or Farrelly Brothers?
Farrelly Brothers every time! Well apart from Miller’s crossing which I love but for me slap stick, gross, close to bone humour is the best kind! I could watch “silly” films by the Farrelly’s all day long! There’s Something about Mary and Dumb and Dumber in particular!
It’s exactly my humour although I rein it in when the need suits of course
5. Favorite baby/child’s book?
As a kid I was not much of a reader I was always outside playing football from dawn till dusk but I loved any books by Roald Dahl the escapism of them all taking you away into another world so different from you own. Getting lost in the books I can say now that my love of books in adulthood stems from reading his books although my reading material of choice is a million miles away! The Twits was one of my all time favourites as I could imaging my own parents pulling the same tricks on each other LOL
6. Favorite non-existent punishment (well, non-existent in “1st world countries”) for monsters who harm the defenseless?
This will not sit well with others I’m sure but here is what I would do if I could
I would put these monsters in a sound proof room with the relatives of their victims for 1 hour and lock the door.
It would certainly save a lot of tax payers money keeping these “people” in prison.
7. What’s your favorite thing to do that is not strictly legal?
Hmmmm this is kinda tricky in it definitions because the way I dance should be illegal but I enjoy it anyway! Especially when no one is around to see me “move like Jagger!”
8. What’s an image that depicts how you feel right now?

This fits in nicely I think, questions about how I feel, where I am going, where I want to be with just a hint of a ray of sunshine on the horizon offering some hope.
9. What’s your favorite ridiculous video?
I don’t have a favourite ridiculous video it is not something I spend time searching the internet for. Here is a video I do like though it’s a music video taken from “Music and Lyrics” and it just makes me laugh out loud when I see it. Hugh Grant is brilliant in this video
