I've received another blog community award, this one a little more well known, called The Liebster Award. The rules have changed over time, but the most recent were given to me by Domain of the Mad Mommy, and they are very much like the Sunshine Award I received last month.
11 interesting things about Mamapotamus
Now I have to answer 11 questions which were given to me.
Who has had the biggest influence on you?
My fetus. He/She influences what I eat, when I sleep, when I wake up, how many times I vomit during the day, what makes me cry (the broken flagpole outside of Burger King), what makes me sick (canned whole chicken at the grocery store), and my level of urinating on self. (It's not if, it's when and how bad)
What do you like about blogging?
I like to think that people read what I write. I enjoy the comments on the blog, but I often get them in real life or on facebook. Sometimes they are out of the blue. Someone may randomly ask me, "So how much toilet paper are you going through these days?"
What do you dislike about blogging? (Be honest!)
The pressure. I don't mind being asked when my next post can be expected, and I love hearing what people think about what I write, but I put a lot of pressure on myself to churn out new stuff. I'm trying to go easy on me.
What makes you laugh out loud?
When my kid acts like me. He gives me the raised eyebrow, the crooked smile, or mimics my speech and I lose it. In the back of my mind I think, "Oh man, I am really in for it now. The payback is about to begin!"
What is your favorite movie?
My favorite movie is Amelie. While I am not particularly interested in France - especially since the "freedom fry" movement- I have to tell ya that they makes some great movies. Studying film ruined films for me, but those French cinematographers know how to get the job done. Every shot in the movie is stunning. If you are into film or photography do yourself a favor and watch it... alone... in a movie theater.
What is your favorite quote?
When I was a kid slouching on the couch my dad used to walk in and ask, "Are you boring?" Everyone else assumed it was my dad's accent and that he meant, "Are you bored?" But he didn't. My dad also says my all-time favorite quote, "Only boring people get bored". So he really did mean to ask if I was boring. As in, are you so boring that you can't come up with a single way to entertain yourself other than watching MY TV in MY favorite chair?
What is your favorite form of social media?
E-vites. It's social, it's online, it qualifies. It also ends in a real party and that's my favorite part.
Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
Yes, and here is my take on that... I've got 'em, I'm stuck with 'em, I wish they were gone. It's not that I don't like them or I wish I had something else, I just wish I didn't have anything anymore. I'm not buying into that "my tattoos are a timeline" crud because I'm not trying to live in the past.
What is your guiltiest pleasure? (food, tv, book, game etc)
Pizza Rolls. Definitely Pizza Rolls
If you had to give up one habit, right now, what would it be?
I understand addiction more than some people think because I am addicted to Diet Coke. I'm off it during the pregnancy, but I think that the 9 months I'm carrying the baby plus the time I spend nursing will be my longest streak of being Diet Coke free. It is HORRIBLE for you, it kills brain cells, it's a drug, and I can't stop it for more time than is necessary to shield my baby from it.
What 3 things are in closest proximity to you right now?
Placenta, laptop, pillow.
