Ten quirks

I was tagged by Blogusvox.

My first. Kind of exciting.

And of course elating because Blogusvox is one of the blogs that I truly admire. (Hellow Mutual Admiration Society...!!).

Seriously thank you Blogusvox.

The tag says: "Honest Scrap Awards are bestowed by bloggers to fellow bloggers whose blog contents or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”

The tag rules read: “When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real.”

“Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!”

Hmmm...let's see. Ten honest things about me?

I've updated my 4 x 3 things about myself and added two of my many (honest-to-goodness) quirkiness.

One: I lotion my feet first then my face. Don't ask me why because I really don't know the reason.

Two: I hurt when I lose mahjong. Again, don't ask. (Oh, please don't regard me with disdain just because I play mahjong. We only play for fun, and we play cheap, like one riyal per game. The highest I've won so far is twelve riyals. Max loss? Fifteen, I think?).

Three: I love my nieces Jillian and Janine. So much. I cooked picadillo once and when Jillian tasted it she said: Picadillo? Di ba dapat Picadiri. (She quickly gave me a nervous glance and I just blurted out: ganun?!). Janine loves doing s-i-g-n languages, which irks her mother so much, but I find so a-m-u-s-i-n-g.

Four: I'm shallow. Very. I enjoy reading emailed jokes. Like this one:

MaTaNdA KA nA...
kung ayaw mo nang sumama sa mga bata.
kung ang lahat ng kasu-kasuhan mo ay tila masakit.
kung ano ang hindi masakit ay ayaw ng gumalaw.
kung alas-kuwatro pa lamang ng umaga ay gising ka na.
kung ang tinitingnan mo sa pagkain ay ingredients.
kung binibilang mo ang calories o fats ng iyong pagkain.
kung ang kati-kati ng likod mo subalit hindi mo makamot dahil hindimo maabot.
kung ang paborito mo pa ring artista ay laos na.
kung si Jaworski pa rin ang paborito mong basketbolista.
kung naiinip ka na sa harapan ng stop lights.
kung dumidikit ang iyong ngipin sa malagkit mong pagkain.

Five: I'm afraid of snakes: big, small, with or with venom, alive or dead. I don't even watch snakes-themed movies or tv series.

Six: I fear hell. (I wonder who of Catholics don't?).

Seven: With all humility, I regard myself as kind-hearted.

Eight: I can say that my life is, at the current time and state, relatively peaceful.

Nine: I'm moody. When I feel like cleaning my room, I'd go without breakfast and lunch just to tidy things up. But if I don't feel like doing it, my room will be unvacuumed, my beddings unwashed, my AC vent undusted for one whole month.

Ten: I love pansit. Except pansit luglog and palabok.

Finally, I tag the following Saudi-based blogs and I'm telling you why:
1. JVC's X-spot: Brilliantly eloquent whether in Spanish or English (and I love his photos too!)
2. Madjik: Brilliantly funny without being vulgar
3. Dyosa's Story: Brilliantly honest in her writings
4. Blog ng Mangyan: Brilliantly engaging in his stories
5. Braggart's Desyerto: Brilliantly opinionated (I actually agree with most of his opinion)
6. Mightydac's Kaleidoscope: Brilliantly friendly in his posts
7. Solis' Thoughtskoto: Brilliantly inventive in his blogs (he has I think three, one of them is an aggregate of blogs by Pinoy expats worldwide).

    Maraming salamat sa yo Nebz, but I think you are wrong when you said that I'm eloquent in Spanish and English, especially Spanish. I'm not. I'm still in a process of "re- gaining" the ability in speaking the language. I always believe that Spanish and spanish culture in the Philippines plays an imoportant role to us, "Filipinos".It made us who we are now, We should not forget history. Sorry for lecturing.
    Salamat uli.

    haha! nebz! salamat sa tag. "Solis' Thoughtskoto: Brilliantly inventive in his blogs (he has I think three, one of them is an aggregate of blogs by Pinoy expats worldwide)."

    Sweet of you, Mr. Kindhearted Man.

    Pero I think you should include below that line "...Pinoy Expats Worldwide. He said he was inspired to create an aggregating site when he saw my Saudi-based blogs post."

    Thank you po.

    Wahahaha! Natawa ako dun sa matanda jokes. Ibang klase karin ano, Nebz. Ikaw lang ang kilala kong naglo-lotion sa paa. : D

    Sa inyong lahat, salamat.

    Oo, Yanah, picadillo is ground something (pwedeng beef or manok o boy-babs). Fave ko rin un!

    RJ and Mightydacz, fave ko ang sumusunod (in order): bihon, kanton, sotanghon, miki.

    JVC, in comparison to me na kakarampot ang alam na words sa Spanish (considering na ang middle name ko ay EspaƱol! As in), eloquent ka sa akin!

    Madjik: Mismo.

    Joshmarie: Nakaka-flattered na madalaw ng isang dyosa...hehe.

    Thoughtskoto: Inventive ka dahil sa tyaga mong mag-produce ng blog award at aggregator. Hirap nun ha.

    Blogusvox: Natawa rin ako dun sa joke. As in. Parang dinedescribe ang buhay ko. Haha.
