Once in a while, I check my Inbox and find emails that leave me astounded for the rest of the day. Last week, I got 2 that left me both amused and upset. Amused, because after 2 months of blogging, I got 2 nominations for (is it legit) WP Blog Awards. Upset, only because I am not one wanting to follow random instructions.

Because of the travels I have for the past weeks, I could not find time to sit quietly and blog about the prestigious (!!!!) nominations I just got. Today, I courageously face The REAL NEAT BLOG AWARD Challenge, as I have been nominated by one Dan Hoger.

Here are the House Rules:

  • Put the award logo on your blog, like so:


It is not specified where to place the Award logo. But since I have an OC Personality, I prefer doing this thingy step by step.

  • Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

So here are the Dan-made questions that need to be answered.

(Hey Dan! I’m finally doing it!)

  1. What’s your favorite kind of sandwich?

Anything with bacon is my favorite.

  1. How would you describe your ideal man?

Nyikes! I guess one who’ll do the laundry and the ironing.

  1. Was that previous question too personal?

Not really. Come on, Dan! It’s not like we’re In our teens here!

  1. If you could be any kind of sea creature, what would you choose?

A crab, in the hopes of being adopted by Mr. Krabbs and inherit all his wealth and the secret recipe to Krabby Patty.

  1. Who would win in a fight between Gandalf and Darth Vader?

Darth Vader. Just because he’s actually my long-lost father.

  1. What is your opinion of Doritos?

I’m a Lay’s loyalist.

  1. On a scale of one to ten, how lame are these questions?

They’re not. I am!

  • Thank (or curse) the person who nominated you, linking to his/her blog.

Thank you, Dan Hoger, for seriously being that sweet guy who reads and comments, and at times, shares my blogs on FB.

  • Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.

This is the most difficult part of this challenge. Here goes my list:

Herminia, Aspiring Writer22

Jim, Random Writings on the Bathroom Wall

Khristine, Part and Parcel 2014

Dom, Black and Write

Owen, the Beleaguered Servant, No Talent for Certainty

Georgette, A Walk on the Bright Side

Karl, Feeling from the Heart

and Dan, (only because I want to know your answers)

My nominees, here are the SEVEN DEADLY QUESTIONS you need to answer to get that much-coveted not-so-legit prestigious REAL NEAT BLOG Award.

  1. What made you choose that WP name you are using now?
  2. How many readers and likers do you think actually read your blog from the first word down to the last period (or question/exclamation mark or ellipsis)?
  3. When did you write your very first poem, short story, article, or whatever it is you are into?
  4. Who is your favorite male villain?
  5. Who is your favorite Disney character?
  6. Where in Asia would you want to visit next?
  7. Who is your favorite WP Blogger?

Should you accept the challenge, please leave a link to your post in the comment box below. (It’s part of the House Rules.)

This is just like the chain letters I received when I was a child. I did not follow those and chose to break the chain effect. Hence, this is my punishment!

  1. Well because you said I don’t have to thank you on my blog, I’m going to say thank you here. Congratulations on the nomination and keep blogging. 🙂

  3. So here’s the dealio, Miss Fairy, since you had the absolute audacity to nominate me for the Whatever-Thingy-Majigger Award in addition to re-nominating me for the same Whatcha-Ma-Callit Award that I nominated you for, I absolutely refuse to write a new post for each one. That would involve posting frequently, which is rather unheard of on my blog.

    That being said, I will (whenever I get around to it) post a response to the Whatever-Thingy-Majigger Award nomination and handle all of that nonsense. But to save myself the grief of having to repost my acceptance to the Whatcha-Ma-Callit Award, I will instead post my answers to your questions as a comment to this post.

    Take it or leave it, Sunshine!

  4. My responses to the questions provided for me on RaineFairy’s cruel and unusual re-nomination of the Whatcha-Ma-Callit Award:

    1. I chose Missing the Muse as the name of my blog because when I began the blog, it had been quite some time since I had done any good writing. In essence, I was coming out of a period where I felt like I was missing my muse.

    2. Not nearly enough.

    3. Back in the day. I dunno, sometime during school.

    4. Why does it have to be a male villain? Are you implying that only males are villains? This question is sexist! *ahem* Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine are good villains. (Is “good villain” an oxymoron?) There were also plenty of oxymorons (good villains) in the 007 films. Too many to list, but Christopher Walken was a classic.

    5. Since Disney owns Star Wars, refer to #3 here:

    6. Seeing as though I’ve never been to Asia (or sadly any continent besides of North America), you could rephrase the question to ask, “Where in Asia would you want to visit first?” And to answer that, I would say Japan.

    7. My favorite WP blogger is the sophisticated and articulate gentleman behind the underrated blog,
