  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions you were asked.
  • Nominate other bloggers and ask them new questions.
  • List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.


  1. Dream job.
    Getting paid to sleep.
  2. My dog’s got no nose….
    Did you get him the handicap placard?
  3. Cat or Dog?
  4. Krautrock or not?
    I had to Google it. I had no idea. Some pieces sound good.
  5. Fantasy dinner party guests (4 people)?
    My Grandfather whom I never met (died before I was born). Jesus. President Trump. Albert Einstein.
  6. I could not do without….
    I like to think that I CAN do without so many things, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty, I would hate to have to do without a comfy bed (Do you see a pattern here?) and my computer.
  7. Mountains or Coast?
    All my life it has been “coast”, but I do appreciate the mountains. And probably even more as I get older.
  8. Does age matter?
    Of course! But it does not mean that I am going to start caring about how old I am.
  9. What possible reason could there be for closing down our libraries?
    Money. Or the lack of. Anything that does not bring profit seems to be useless to the governing people. Silly reason, but true.
  10. Blogging matters because…
    Were you having your blogging crisis when you wrote that? It matters on various levels. There are people out there who are having various deep, existential problems, and there are people who HAD them in the past and wrote about them. Somehow, that can turn the reader’s world around.
    When it comes to my own selfish reasoning, I like to think that blogging matters because it can make the reader pause and think. It might help them with their own situation, it might help steer them in the right direction, it can spark a conversation. It can lead to a great exchange of ideas, which I think is something we do not see all that often in the real world.
  11. Why is G&T so lush despite both constituent parts being disgusting separately?
    Well, no, you see, tonic is not so bad on its own.


  1. Which sport would like to watch with the players under the influence of alcohol and why?
  2. What is your favorite type of cheese?
  3. If you were wrongfully put into an insane asylum, how would you convince them that you’re actually sane and not just pretending to be sane?
  4. Do you like peanut butter? If so, what do you normally eat it with?
  5. If you were to lead a cult/ church, what would your sect be about?

    1. I do an award post on the last day of every month, so if you nominate me the day before, it’s quick, but if you do so on the first of the month, you end up waiting the whole month.
      Again, thank you for the nomination.

      1. My blogging is easily explained. I live alone, I don’t work and I love the writing process. On my blog there is a page called Envy which contains a story I have been writing. It is basically a piece of self-indulgence but with an audience of two, we boys don’t need a lot of encouragement to continue with a task. Have a good day and thanks for stopping by.

  1. For me February was the month I looked and worked forward to.
    The month of the big change. I thought all my problems were going to be solved.
    That didn’t happen, but the most bothering issues I was able to flush down the toilet.

    Independence is very important to me too. But I think I have made people and myself believe that I don’t need any help at all.
    But I do. I’m too proud to ask or accept it.

    You are actually the only who nominates me for these awards.
    I have been nominated in the past, but kept declining them, so no one ever bothered any more 😉
    I will get to it!

    1. Life would be too nice if all our problems were solved, so I am glad that you at least managed to get rid of one of your issues.

      RE: independence… I so understand and can relate.

      I am so bad with those nominations, because so many people don’t do them, so many people are nominated a million times a day, so many are MIA. And when I do “whoever wants it”, it doesn’t feel as special, and no one does it. I have to come up with a better strategy.


      1. I actually started to enjoy the awards. It gives me an opportunity to write more positive posts. All of my other stuff is more heavy and dark even.
        Keep ‘em coming! 😀
