Mystery Blogger Award

Tamara at Part-time Working Hockey Mom nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award. According to Okoto Enigma the creator of the award, The Mystery Blogger Award "is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts" which could mean I'm an amazing blogger or not but I'll accept it anyway. Thank you Tamara. Go here to enjoy Tamara's humorous and honest take on being a hockey mom.

The rules from creator Okoto Enigma (check out her blog here) - as the text is protected, I can't copy the text which pretty much defeats rule #2 - am I expected to type it out? not me, so here's a screen capture:
Mystery Blogger Award rules
"I am selfish, private and easily bored. Will this be a problem?" — Neil Gaiman, A Study in Emerald 
I'm suppose to tell you 3 things about me:
(1) I'm slim and tall. No, that's not true. I'm mid-slim and mid-tall.

(2) My favorite color is mint or rather mint blue. It used to be just blue but for some odd reason, I just began to like mint blue.

(3) I work as a graphic designer which pretty much means I do what people tell me even if I have to make something brown when it looks better in every other color. Okay, it's not always that way. I have some control, sort of.

Here are links to my best posts: I don't know what my best posts are as the rule doesn't say what is the criteria involve for choosing such but I'm going to go with three of my favorite posts:
(1) Some blogging confessions

(2) Morning commutes and traveling pandas - a short fiction

(3) Maroon - one of my art work


Here's the 5 questions from Tamara for me to answer:
(1) How did you decide to start your blog?
On a whim or maybe someone inspired me to do it.  I can't remember which but does it really matter?

(2) If you were a fruit, which would you be and why?

A pineapple because the outside is a bit prickly and the inside is kind of not, sort of what I am like.

(3) Show me your favourite purse / bag / backpack!
I have no favorite. I find any bag I carry at the moment is a favorite because it holds my things so I wouldn't have to hold them in my hands.

(4) Chicken or Beef?
Chicken and mostly because I don't like beef unless it's a hamburger with a lot of ketchup but I hardly get to eat those these days.

(5) What are three of your best traits? - this is rather hard as I seem never able to come up with anything worth mentioning but I'll try:

(A) my quietness or maybe my non-talkative-ness which is probably not a trait but more of an attitude?

(B) my ability to multi-task which really means I can do more than two things at once though I still cannot pat my head and rub my stomach at the same time. Can anyone?

(C) the ability to read a book from beginning to end though sometimes I sort of skimmed if the book is pretty bad.

I don't think I'll be nominating anyone as I couldn't possibly choose among my 200+ favorite bloggers on my reading list and also because I'm lazy. But here's 5 silly and perhaps dumb questions for you. Do feel free to answer them in the comments or in your own blog.

(1) What tv show or shows you love to watch but is little embarrassed to tell people that you love them?

(2) If you have a choice to be someone else for a day, who would it be?

(3) Name a book you've read that you thought you were going to love but you ended up hating it.

(4) If you're the smartest person in the world, what mystery or mysteries would you want to solve?

(5) Where do bloggers come from? Do they come from some magical land and or do they just fell out of the sky?

So I didn't quite follow the rules but it's okay. There's no rule about following rules is there? Thanks for reading & have a lovely day.
