Mystery Blogger Award: Take Three

For the third time, I have been nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award. Originally created by Okoto Enigma:

This is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging and they do it with so much love and passion. – Okoto Enigma

This time I was nominated by my good friend Bloke from A Guy Called Bloke. I initially started following Bloke due to his poetry, but his blog contains far more than that. He writes about his daily life with Asperger’s, his travels, and more. Some of my favorite of Bloke’s posts are written from the perspective of his adorable dog, Doodlepip (AKA Scrappy). Here’s an excellent example!

Rules

The Mystery Blogger Award comes with some rules. They are:

  • Thank whoever nominated you and include a link to their blog – done.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • Answer the questions from the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 10-20 bloggers you feel deserve the award.
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice with one weird or funny one.
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.

Three Things About Me

  1. While I can handle staying up late if I have to, I much prefer to go to bed and get up early.
  2. I’m starting to get bored with this blog’s design. Expect updates soon!
  3. I’ve been thinking more seriously about trying to recruit a coauthor for this blog.

Answers to Bloke’s Questions

1. If life was measured by a piece of string, how long would Infinity be?

If life was measured by a piece of string, there would be no way to represent infinity. As far as we know, all life is finite.

2. What do butterflies get in their stomach when they’re nervous?

I’m not sure butterflies get nervous. They certainly have a flight reaction to potentially dangerous stimuli, but I’m not convinced they experience what humans call “nervousness.”

3. Is it illegal to kill an ant?

Not as far as I know.

4. Which ‘urban legend’ scares you the most?

Black-eyed children. No, you can’t come in! You little s….!!

5. Of the following films, which would you say is the most fitting to be classed as totally mysterious. More importantly, why?

I haven’t seen any of the films listed, so they’re all totally mysterious to me!

  1. I’m so curious now…maybe humans are the only species in the entire animal kingdom to experience anxiety. What if that’s our downfall? Everyone’s looking at the population crisis but this whole time it’s been right under our noses. We’re going to WORRY OURSELVES INTO EXTINCTION

    1. Haha, I suspect that not worrying enough – or rather worrying about the wrong things – is more likely to be our downfall.

      Seriously though, I imagine there are species who feel similar physical sensations to the ones we label “anxiety.” But whether this translates into the emotional tone of anxiety that we call “nervousness” is another matter. I’d also be surprised if butterflies felt the same sort of anxiety that we do.
