The Holiday Leibster Award

liebster-award

This Leibster Award comes to me from PalFitness and Sheri at broken fingernails

I will use the rules of the nomination and the questions from PalFitness except that I will add a few more nominees.

His rules are to nominate five people, answer five questions, and ask five questions of my nominees.

His questions:

  1. Do you prefer playing games online or watching movies?

    Watching movies.

  2. What type of music is your favorite?

    I like everything including country. My favorite depends on my mood.

  3. Tell us more about yourself, things never mentioned and somewhat secret.

    I love to learn and consider education essential to a full life. I have no patience for people who equate ignorance with innocence.

  4. We are all special here, what makes you special?

    Nothing makes me special. I’m an average guy blessed with a particular set of gifts. I think this is true of everyone.

What is your favorite thing to do and favorite person to spend time?

I like to spend time with my partner; even when we are in different rooms of our apartment, life always feels better when he’s home.
