Versatile Blogger Award

Imaginary Karin - versatile blogger award

I’ve recieved The Versatile Blogger Award from Raisa, thank you very much! :heart:

Everyone seem to be getting awards left and right lately, is it award season in the blogosphere or something? Not that I mind, I love shit like this! :D

RULES

– Thank the person who nominated you

– Include a link to their blog

– Tell the person who nominated you 7 facts about you

– Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you have recently discovered or follow regularly

7 random facts

1. I’m left-handed, left-footed and left-eyed

The only thing my right hand is good for is using a computer mouse, and that’s only because when I first started using computers I was forced to have the mouse on the right side.
Nowadays I can switch between left and right side mouse at will, it’s very convenient actually.

2. I don’t like getting flowers

Maybe I’m wired wrong, but receiving cut flowers makes me sad. All you can really do with them is watch them slowly wither and die. When seeing a bouquet of flowers all I think about is how much longer they would’ve lived and how much more beautiful they would be if they had been allowed to stay where they were.

(Exception: potted plants. At least they got their roots with them and can be kept alive.)

It took my poor boyfriend years to realize I was being serious about not wanting roses. “But it’s romantic!” So is chocolate, and I really really rather have the chocolate.

(You wanna be romantic for realz? Do the dishes. ;) )

3. I have the phone anxiety from hell

Nothing sends me into full panic mode as quickly and efficiently as being faced with having to call someone – even if it’s just to order a pizza. Fuck, even if it’s friends and family. I don’t even like calling my own mother!
Thank the gods for texting and emails…

4. I could live solely on french fries

Can we skip the burger and the milkshake? I’m only here for the potatoes.
I also have very strong opinions about what the perfect fries are like: I want them long, thin, and as crispy as possible. Preferably served with bearnaise sauce on the side, but never ketchup!

5. If I had been a boy my parents would’ve named me Erik

It’s my dads middle name. I think I would’ve been ok with that, I’d make a good Erik.

6. Wolves are my favourite animals

Wolves are such incredibly fascinating animals, for as long as I can remember I’ve been somewhat obsessed with them. My passion has also branched out to include many other canine species and even related mythical beings like werewolves and skinwalkers.

I’ve read more books and watched more documentaries about wolves than you can count. I also own a considerable amount of stuff with wolves on them, like t-shirts and posters and such. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to everything wolf-ish.

So very beautiful :heart:

7. I’m not allergic to anything!

I mean, of course I haven’t tested myself with every single substance in the entire world, but so far in my life I’ve never had an allergic reaction from anything I’ve been in contact with. And I consider myself very lucky for that!

    Thanks for nominating me! I actually nominated you, too, in my entry for the Versatile Blogger Award earlier XD

    I didn’t know you were left-handed! I have to admit I like getting flowers, but I agree that it’s very sad when they wither and die. And yesss, I’m so glad texting and email is so common now. I have phone anxiety too, and I try to avoid phone calls if possible.

    I love thin and crispy fries! I feel like fat ones have too much mushy potato and not even fried parts, haha. I also like them if they’re waffle fries or curly fries, as long as they’re still crispy.

    You are sooo lucky to not have any allergies! I have several pollen allergies, and I’m super allergic to cats. I also get a slight allergic reaction to certain raw fruits. I wish I wasn’t allergic to all of those!

    I really loved reading your facts and that you elaborated on them! If I see anything wolf related I do think of you and my best friend who also really likes them! :D

    I can feel you on the phone anxiety. I thought it would be something that I would grow out of, because I hated the phone when I was younger as well. Even forcing myself to do it. Nope. xD

      I worked in a Service Desk environment for 10 years and I still hate calling people :P

    I’m left handed too! I can also use my mouse with my right hand. At home my Dad was left handed too so we used the mouse on the left but at school it was on the right so I ended up just learning to do it with my right hand.

    I also agree with you on the flowers. I think they’re a waste of money, plus they have an “I’m sorry” reputation where, in romantic relationships anyway, they seem to be more a sign of making amends rather than a spontaneous “I thought you’d like this”

    LOL No.5 made me think I JUST had this conversation with my parents on the weekend. They said that if I had been a boy they would have named me Keenan. So funny because I really don’t like that name at all LOL

    And you are sooooo lucky you are not allergic to anything!! Just over the past year I have developed a small allergy to pollen which I have never had in my 30 years of life. When you get old … sigh. Yes you are very lucky.

    Thanks for nominating me! :) I really appreciate it.

    I too am not really into flowers but not because of the same reason as you. They’re really pretty but I’d rather a guy give me food instead. That would make me so much happier!

    I agree with you on number 3! I am just the most awkward person ever. I live at home and every time our house phone rings, I always pretend I don’t hear anything. Just freaking text me, people. Heck, I too can’t get myself to even order fastfood delivery! Glad I’m not alone. XD

    Thanks for nominating me! I have already done this, I think twice, but another time couldn’t hurt right? LOL :D :D :D Here is my post for reference. I like to think of different facts every time I get an award like this!

    I used to use a left-handed mouse before I used a trackpad instead. I am not left-handed but since injuring my right wrist while writing, I tried to do as much as possible with my left hand. Using a computer mouse was easy, and I even confused some people who came to my computer at work to help me with something. They would use their right hand but know the buttons were switched. Then they told me, when they went back to their own computer, that they pressed their own buttons wrong because of me. :P I also use a knife and fork the ‘wrong’ way around.

    I don’t think I have any serious allergies either, I am mildly lactose intolerant but not as bad as some people have it. :)

    I don’t mind getting flowers but it does make me really sad when they die. My boyfriend sent me tulips when he went overseas – at the time, we weren’t really a couple but we already expressed our feelings to each other – they are my favourite flower and no one had given me flowers as a surprise or gift before. He had them delivered as a sort of promise that he would come back for me.

    I had people buy me flowers on Valentine‘s Day previously, but it was because someone at work or school was selling them. So, you know, they certainly didn’t buy them of their own accord, if you know what I mean. (And the funds went to the workplace or the school.) I was really sad when the tulips started wilting because I didn’t want them to die at all! I agree that it can be very depressing haha. No matter what I did the tulips were eventually going to die. :P

    If I were a boy I think my parents would have named me Sven or Luke. They wanted to name my brother (Brandon) that when he was on the way. xD
