  5.  Nominate up to 10 people for the award

TEN QUESTIONS ASKED BY THE ONE WHO NOMINATED ME

1.  What is your worst habit or vice? –  I will go with, I procrastinate. I do boring things at the last possible second. Like pack my bag for a trip right before I go to the airport…
2. What do you collect? – I collect memories and photos from trips.
3. What is the one thing that immediately brings a smile to your face? – My cat!
4. Describe yourself in one word. – Loyal.
5. If you were passing by an empty house and the door was open, would you go in and look around? – Not if it’s dark! There could be a dangerous crazy person in there.
6. What is the strangest thing you have ever found?  A narcissist!  😉 Um, no, sorry, they’re human beings… um, things…  don’t know. I’m not into things. I’m into people and places!
7. What is the one thing you always wanted as a child and never got? –  A horse! (They promised me, damn it!)
8. Would you lie under oath to protect a friend/family member? – I suppose I would, unless it was about a murder. I would however inform the person that I am an extremely bad liar, so I would probably end up hurting their court case more than helping it…
9. If you saw a homeless person being abused, would you intervene? If I could, yes. If it’s a dangerous situation, I would call the police.
10. If you had to leave your home due to a natural disaster and could only take five things with you, what would they be? – My cat, my laptop, camera. Passport and money so I can travel somewhere nicer than the natural disaster-place I apparently live in!

QUESTIONS FOR MY NOMINEES:

  1. If you could do anything at all, what would that be?
  2. I you won a fantasy sum of money, that could last you a hundred lifetimes, would you quit your job?
