Whoa, two posts in one day! I must have a ton of energy – or a lot of smoldering rage issues preventing me from getting anything else accomplished. Well, I guess we’ll never know!
But at least this brightened my mood – I’ve been nominated for another award! My first-ever Liebster Award. You know, when I started blogging not all that long ago, I honestly never considered that anyone would actually want to read it, let alone think it had any particular value. But I was apparently wrong – many thanks to moresleepneeded for the kind nomination!
As a part of the award, I once again get to answer a series of questions posed by my nominator, and then nominate a group of fellow bloggers to answer some questions of my own. Without further ado, more information that you probably never wanted to know about your friendly neighborhood Evil Wizard, Esq.
1.Why did you choose the name of your blog?
Well, if you’ve read it, then Evil should probably be self-explanatory. Wizard is a reference to the fact that I’m fairly analytical – I want to understand anything I don’t, be it people, situations, or problems. And passing the Ohio bar exam enables me to add the Esq. to the end!
2.If you could go back in time to experience any event, where would you go?
Hmm…tough call. I mean, I’ve always been fascinated by space exploration, so one obvious choice would be to watch Apollo 11 lunar landing. But then, the evil nihilistic side of me might say that I could go back to the very first instant that basic building blocks of human life first formed in the primordial soup of the earth…AND STOP THEM.
3.What subjects do you enjoy finding out information about?
Well, the obvious example given my profession would be law – but the truth is EVERYTHING. There is honestly nothing I don’t like learning more about. Gaming, sports, politics, science, history…I’ve never encountered a single subject that I don’t find interesting on some level.
4.What is a mystery you would like to know the answer to?
The existence of extraterrestrial life. It’s fascinated me since I was a youth.
5.What is the funniest way that you have heard anyone mistake the lyrics for a song?
Hmm…I don’t really have a good answer for this one, but I cracked up the other day when my niece told me that her new favorite movie was “The Wizard of the Boz.”
6.What is the weirdest question you have been asked as part of a Liebster Award Nomination?
See Number 7 below.
7.What is the name of a dance song (which sounds like it was from the eighties) which features energetic music and a deep voice singing “Hold me”?
I…I honestly have absolutely no idea.
8.How do you like to write blogs?
As a pure stream of consciousness – I find the most entertaining entries are when I have a lot stirring inside and just let myself rant. Alcohol tends to help this process.
9.What would you do if I sang out of tune?
I would stand up and walk out on you – and then immolate the establishment in which you were singing. So don’t.
10.What is a song that reminds you of a specific time or place?
This is tough for me to answer – not because I can’t think of an example, but because there are so many and most are intensely personal. I will say “Walking in Memphis”, high school, and The X-Files. The rest is mine alone.
My nominations go to:
The Storytelling Cook at Recipe in a Bottle (so many delicious noms)
As for my questions:
- If you could have one more visit with someone who is no longer in your life, who would it be?
- If you won the lottery tomorrow and were financially set for life, what would you do?
- Where is your absolute favorite place on earth?
- What is your favorite game, book, film, show, etc.?
- If you lost everything you had, who is the first person you would turn to for help?
Short and sweet, kiddos! Thanks again for making an old, evil hermit feel welcome! – EWE
