So, Infinite Plans has passed along a cool award to me.

 The Liebster Award

 I must follow the rules in order to accept it properly, so here they are:

1. Link back to the person who gave you the award. Infinite Plans is here, the Infinite GP is here. I like going both places, so be a dear and show him love from mine.

2. Pick 5 people deserving of the award and notify them on their blogs.

  I. Jéanne from Barefoot Girl

 II. Tracie from Crack You Whip

III. That Bastard From Bellingham at The Pen Is My Sword

IV. Cranface at The Cranface Chronicles

  V. Omnislash at Omni's Personal Blog

and rule number

 3.Post the award on your blog and spread the love.

 So here it is, for all of my deserving recipients to grab and place. You are great blogs and I liebster you.

And it's still Sunday somewhere, so I'm going stealing with Sunday Stealing. A meme originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser.

 I have an addictive personality. I tend to let things grow on me so much that I end up doing the ones I like again, and again, until it becomes somewhat of a problem. This is a series of questions*my current addiction, and my answers. I didn't post all 99 of them, but I saw this set and thought I'd have a go at it.

 76) In your opinion, what makes a great relationship? 

 A mixture of compliments and tact, as well as a good measure of communication and personal space.

77) How did/could someone win your heart?

 In a saw-esque claw machine, you know the kind that you get the fluffy animals from, but this time It'd be my icy heart.

78) In your world, what brings on more creativity?

 Other's creativity. I can't tell you how many times someone else's venture into the risky and unknown territory of originality had such a profound effect on me, that I would immediately go home and expand on those feelings of inspiration.

79) What is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?

 Not giving up. I've been told that what I want to do is 'impossible'. I have promised myself that until I draw my final breath, it will be to prove that I can do this, and that I will not quit.

80) Why did you break up with your last ex?

 She kept blaming her mistreatment of me on her mental disorders. I really grew to care for her, but I became unwilling to spend time with her once she became unwilling to budge about the issues that we had. Don't get me wrong, I have my issues too, but I will never transform my problems into excuses to treat others like dung.

81) What would you want to be written on your tombstone?

  "I'm still here, look behind you!"

82) What is your favorite word?


83) Give me the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word: delusional.

 Grand Canyon

84) What is a saying you use a lot?

 "You can't have no in your heart"-Joe Dirte

85) Are you watching Idol this season? If yes, how do you like it?

 I am not. I haven't watched it for years. It was mainly a bonding thing, so eh.

86) Were you surprised that House got canceled?

 Not really, I was surprised when it came out. I thought Ted Danson had cornered the market on dickhead doctors with Becker.

87) What is your current desktop picture?

definitely looks better on my desktop

88) If you could press a button and make anyone in the world instantaneously explode, who would it be?

 I would make my mother explode

 with joy from being the biggest lottery winner, ever!

 haha, gotcha on that one!

89) What would be a question where you'd not tell the truth?

 Are you handsome?

90) One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by WEEPING ANGELS. The Weeping Angles aren't really doing anything, they're just standing around your bed. What would you do?

 I would rise to the center in song. My human voice would sing lyrics of how grateful I am that those same angels were the ones that have saved me from multiple deaths. 

91) You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What is that power?

 To see a glow around genuinely good people. That way, I'd never accidentally befriend a betrayer.

92) You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again?

 I'd have to say it'd be a family get-together back at my grandparent's farm. My brother and cousin were also there, so I'd have all the deceased members of my family to have another conversation with. That and we'd be fishing, just letting the time slip away in comfortable silence.

93) You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?

 I would erase the idea of erasing any memory. The horrible experiences of my past are there to teach me lessons that I do not repeat in the future. So I'm keeping them, keeping them all.

94) You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. (let's say that you are both single and available) Who might it be?

 I actually don't think I would make it past first base. With expectation high for this 'date', I'd feel very awkward the whole night and probably abstain to retain some self respect, and to leave no room for rumour hounds like TMZ to be all over my lawn the next day.

  But I would choose to date Zooey Deschanel She'd be ultra-cool with us not having to give in to pressures, and also be fine with just knitting popcorn quilts while listening to jazzy tunes..

95) You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go?

 This minute's answer is Hong Kong. I always wanted to go there, and now I'll see where master IP trained Bruce Lee. Cool!

96) Do you have any relatives or friends in jail?


97) Who's winning the U.S. Republican presidential nomination? Why?

 Romney. Because politicians cheat.

98) Who's winning the next U.S. Presidential election?

 An animal. Or an alien. Or an alien animal. I'd take any of those in favor of what we've had for the past 4 years.

99) If the whole world were listening to you right now, what would you say?

 I wouldn't say a word, but a make a clicking sound that would tickle everyone's ear so much that they'd pee their pants. I would then go walking and have a laugh at everyone else's expense.

 P.S. I am in the middle of two graphics requests. I'm doing a KAOS radio logo for Bastard, and an Angry button for Angry Lurker. Those should be done and posted by tomorrow night. Thank you all for visiting and I will be returning and catching up.

 Until then, don't let the web become sticky....use some cooking oil.


  1. As usual, you are the BEST! Thank you, once again, for thinking of me!

  2. That is probably the best award Q&A I have seen.

    1. Thanks. I always enjoy writing answers to questions. I guess that's why I was an ace tester in school. Homework was of a different nature altogether.

  3. Good random answers and looking forward to my button....

    1. Thanks, and the button is ready for pickup at the graphix request tab. I hope it is to your liking.

  4. Congrats on the award :) If I was surrounded by Weeping Angels I'd just close my eyes and hope it didn't hurt. Those things are freaky.

    1. Yeah, they are pretty freaky, I have to admit. Any entity that can bypass the laws of classic physics can be frightening, to say the least.

      Thanks for the gratz.

  5. Congrats on the award and tons of questions, an ex with mental disorders, yeah had a nut job or two in my time.

    1. Yeah, tons of questions, but still I have answers. That and addictions, this is now another to add to the list.

  6. Dear Mr. Shockgrubz,

    I am honoured to receive your outstanding award! Blog post about said award is currently in progress, but will be published shortly. Hoping you are well.

    Kind regards,
    Barefoot Girl! :)

    1. I headed over that way and love your reception of the award!

    2. I was so excited when I saw I'd actually been chosen for something AND that my name was first on the list! I'm almost never picked for things. (because I'm a froot loop!) You also spelled my name right. Thanks! Most people don't bother. My idiot-mother thought a French name sounded posh. Can you spell pretentious?! Nobody ever gets it right!

      I love the answers you give to these questions, you're refreshingly honest and not at all a berk! Your wallpaper is fantastic! I love the green. It looks like a glass sculpture.

      Those weeping angels remind me of a rather terrifying episode of Dr. Who!
      79) I'm deeply proud of you and I believe in you. I know you will!
      80) I couldn't agree more. That's just not on!
      81) Hilarious!
      82) Reverie! Probably because I'm always in one! (bloody artists!)

      Hmm, I'm rambling again. My bad! :)

  7. I have to say that the claw machine gig was so cute!!! hahaha

    Congrats on your award :)

    1. I was hoping that it would be someone's favorite. Glad you laughed!

  8. I like your answer to question 91 best!

    1. Thanks. Super human strength and invisibility do you no good when you surround yourself with users.

  9. congrats on the award! i love Q and A's

    1. And I love your outfits~ Thanks for the gratz.

  10. Chaos Party Radio as a motherfucker yo!

    So THIS is the Liebster Awards! Now I gotta make sure I do it right...but hey, thanks m'man! Once I figure out this psychotic .xml issue with the main site (and, by concatenation, the others)I'll get right back on it and Battleworld and every other project.

    Also, puttin' you in Shittychat the Fightan as my Special Hyper Tag. :3

  11. I got said award, too, but I've been out to lunch for about a week, but I'll be doing this in the next couple days.

    1. Cool, I'll go have a check out, when it's finished.

  12. Replies
    1. I know, right? What kind of prattle will I hear while I'm people watching now?

  13. Replies
    1. Three episodes. That's all I needed to figure out the formula..should have taken one, but the first two I was just watching for the commercials.

  14. Which may explain why it was canceled.

    1. Indeed. If there's nobody in the woods to hear us say "Timber", why say it at al?

  15. Replies
    1. Poo, indeed. Although some would say your use of new comments here is poo, in light of the new threaded comments, but raising my numbers is something else my ocd likes very much.

  16. No. 81 was brilliant!!
    Congrats on your award! *thumbs up*

    1. Sometimes a little brilliance shines through all of the tom-foolery, nincompoopedness, and randoom thoughts. Thanks!

  17. It's really nice of you that you took the time to answer these questions... Followed.

    1. Gaining you as a reader is very much appreciated.

  18. Whoa this site is awesome, glad i took the time to read the answers to those questions! Im definitely going to be following and tuning in if I can hear back from you :D
    -college speed
