Award Tag

So HoneyDame decided to take matters into her own hands per my non-blogging by tagging me and giving me an award. Thank you for the high honour. It's nice that I'm still thought of as part of the blogging sisterhood, even though I have been playing hookey over the past couple of months.

So she has some questions for me to answer which I will get to, straight away. Here goes:

1. What is your secret weapon to lure the opposite sex, boy/girlfriend, husband/wife, potential? (hahahahaha, for the heck of it)
I am me at all times. I'm not sure that is a secret weapon. I'm not even sure it works, seeing as it hasn't worked for some time now. But I keeps it 100 and it may or may not attract or 'lure' someone in the future. But I figure why fix something that isn't broken, right? 

2. What was/is a major deciding factor in your choice of career?
I hated maths with the whole of my life! Still do. Went for the career that would require little to no maths. But I also loved the law. Justice. Right versus wrong. Making difficult arguments and having a 360 degree view of any and everything a.k.a the ability to argue from both sides. So it was a mixed bag of blessings that I was able to find something I loved and shun something I hated. 

3. What was/is a major deciding factor in your decision to be with or not to be with your current significant other?
I don't have a significant other (plis epp suvvring!) but I'll offer you my two pence. The major deciding factors for me are: a relationship with God built on the Bible, family values and work ethics. In that order. 
4. What does the colour "black" represent to you?

5. Toinlicious vs HoneyDame, who is saner (Aha, now you gotta read both blogs!!!)
Toinlicious. Because in the city of the blind men, the one eyed man is king. 

6. Novels or Movies?
These days, movies. It's the lazier way to be entertained.

7. Your favorite season of the year is?
My birthday. Yes people, it IS  a season. If you don't like it, please call police. But if we are talking seasons characterized by changes in weather, I LOVE winter. Why am I living in Nigeria, I hear you ask?  Simplez...Baseless Patriotism. I love winter clothing. I love the chill. I love winter snuggles (snuggling in the heat is another word for smothering or homicide) I always say if you're cold you can do something about it; add an extra layer, drink something warming, etc. I hate the 'futility' of summer. If you're hot, you can't sha 'naked yourself' on the road if there's no medical certificate or visible mental condition to explain your malady. But then again, with the way we are going... 

8. The 8th Wonder of the world should be ___________
My room-mate's shoe collection. Shalla Roomie!!!!!

9. How many of your current friends were made in elementary/primary school?
Friends: 1. Acquaintances: 2

10. Do you believe in the power of thoughts?
I believe in the power of faith. I believe in decreeing a thing and seeing it established. I believe that I must think it, then speak it into existence. So in a roundabout way, I believe in the power of thought. 

Those are my answers. 

Here are my questions:

1. (Seeing as we are all recycling this one for its sheer absurdity...)What is your secret weapon to lure the opposite sex, boy/girlfriend, husband/wife, potential? 
2. What are the components of a perfect sandwich?
3. Texting or talking?
4. How should people that speak with "a foreign accent with strong H-factor or any other factors" be punished?
5. What does feminism mean to you?
6. If you could be anything or anyone for a day, who are what would you be and why?
7.What was the last book you read? Using a star rating, how many stars out of 5 would you give it?
8. What is the most ridiculous bit of news you've heard this year?
9. What bit of news saddened you the most this year?

I no longer follow blogs with the avid interest I used to. So, sorry HD, I may not get the desired 5, bearing in mind that some of the bloggers I still know may mind being inducted into a 'sisterhood' as they are men.

    1. Sorry ma. But a Yoruba proverb says "the truth is also the offspring of the one who gave birth to nonsense talk". I apologize ma. But thank God for the silver lining: YOU WON!!! Lmaaaaoooooo. Thanks for commenting baybay!

  3. You guys are really unto me! Your tag was specifically because of the reason you mentioned. At least, it worked, adupe!!! How you answered question 1 is really speakingmy mind! There is also the issue of "have I already attracted said person?" because if yes, I can help increase the attraction...but only by keeping it 100%!
