Liebster Award


I was recently nominated for a Liebster Award by:

He is a very cool Irish musician who writes beautiful poetry. You should definitely check him out. I am extremely flattered he picked my little blog. Thank you!

I am copying and quoting the rules from his website that he received from his nominator:

The Liebster Award is very unique in the fact it brings recognition to the smaller blogs of the ‘verse. With that in mind, all of the nominated blogs will have under 200 followers.

The rules:

1. Thank the Liebster Blog presenter who nominated you and link back to their blog.

2. Post 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions you were asked and create 11 questions for your nominees.

3. Nominate 11 blogs who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been chosen.

4. Display the Liebster Award logo.

5. No tag back thingys.

Eleven Questions I Was Asked:

(1) What most defines the decade you were born in?

Disco and Scooby Doo.

(2) Why do you write/draw/paint etc?

I write, because it is the one talent I was given. A psychic once told me I would die at the age of 43. I am trying to leave memories for my children.

(3) What is your favourite gangster movie?

Ummm…hmmmm… I have to admit to never even seeing “The Godfather”. Does “The Usual Suspects Count”?

(4) What song most reminds you of your teenage years?


(5) What is your favourite period of history?

The 1920s before the crash. Women were so glamorous. Men dressed up.

(6) What is your favourite swear word?

The big F. But my children read this blog, so I keep it tame.

(7) What is your favourite TV programme?


(8) Describe yourself in three words?

Fun, Loony, Moody

(9) Name the person that influenced you the most?

My amazing grandma. She would dance wherever she chose. She ate dessert before dinner. She wore whatever she wanted. She had the most amazing laugh…The kind of laugh with the sound “hah” actually in it. She was beautiful. She was free.

(10) Do we, as a society, value beauty over intellect?

The fact that “The Bachelor” and “Jersey Shore” exist, would be a most noteable and unfortunate, yes.

The sadness that we are constantly perfecting plastic surgery, but have yet to cure cancer.

(11) If someone made a movie of your life what would it be called?

Loony Girl

  1. Congrats, Jenni!! You’re a terrific writer so it’s nice to be able to read a little of your work every day. And I absolutely loved what you said about Grams – so true and special. She would’ve gotten a kick out of that.
