I found out today that I was nominated by What’s in the Box to be a recipient of the Liebster Award.  I was absolutely thrilled and feel so special that my little blog with only a dozen followers (so far) would be picked.

What’s in the Box – thank you for thinking of me, thank you for making me laugh, thank you for your “likes” and thank you for reminding me that we are not alone in our search for love.

The rules of the Liebster Award are as follows:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer the eleven questions they asked you
  • Nominate eleven other people (who have 200 or less followers)
  • Ask them eleven questions in return

Here are the questions What’s in the Box asked me:

1.     What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you in bed with a lover?

When I first starting having sex I was about 50 lbs. over weight and my idea of exercise was walking to and from the subway every day to get to and from work.  I was inexperienced….and fat…..and I was having a really hard time getting into the swing of things.  One night I climbed on top trying to impress but after a few short minutes it was quite obvious that I was no porn star.  I started sweating….I was out of breath (not in the good way)….I was dizzy.  I finally had to stop or else I was going to throw up from exhaustion.  As I climbed off he said to me…..“You gotta get your ass to the gym, kid.”

 2.     Would you rather date a homeless person with a heart of gold or a rich oil tycoon with a bad temper who kills all your house plants and hates your cat? Why?

OK…here comes the materialistic WinterInNYC.  I need to be able to plug-in my hair straightener…I don’t go tenting (some of you may call this camping)…and I really don’t do well without air conditioning.  A heart of gold is awesome but I’d rather take the tycoon’s money, sleep with the gardener and hide out in my walk-in closet with my cat, a dirty martini and my manolo blahniks.  He can kill the plants….if he didn’t I surely would.

3.     What did you dream last Sunday night?

I recently started watching The West Wing on Netflix.  I’m hooked!  Last Sunday I dreamt that I was riding in a car with Martin Sheen.  He wasn’t the president in my dream but he was a married man.  He was flirting with me and I was digging it and when I woke up I realized that I have a huge crush on him.   I think it was the episode where he’s in New Hampshire on his ranch wearing jeans and a T-shirt smoking a cigarette that did it for me.  It’s so typical of me that I would dream about Martin Sheen and not Rob Lowe…I seem to have a thing for unavailable older men.

4. What is your favorite rom com movie and why?

Bridget Jones’s Diary – A 30-something single women who drinks, smokes and eats too much falls in love with a man despite the fact that she knows he isn’t good for.  She knows it, her friends know it, the viewers know it.  He screws her over, as expected, and once again she is heart-broken and alone.  She turns to writing to help turn her life around.

Sounds familiar…

5. Would you rather abstain from sex or meat for a year if you had to choose only one?

In a few weeks from now I will officially hit one year as a born again virgin (not by choice).  Yeah….not fun but totally doable.  I would gladly give up meat for a year if it meant good sex.  To give head and then have the guy fall asleep while I masturbate is definitely not worth a medium rare cheeseburger.

6. Tell us about a life or death situation when you didn’t think you would make it?!

I’m glad to report that I haven’t had a life or death situation.  I’m actually very thankful for this.  I guess the closest I came to death was when I jumped out of an airplane.  But, with a super hot Australian strapped to my back, I figured if the parachute didn’t open that this was a pretty good way to go out.

7. Do you feel like you have a “one that got away”?

I don’t.  I feel like I’m the one that got away (thankfully).  My last 3 serious relationships included a wanna be cool guy who thought going from glasses to contacts would transform him into a hunk who could date models, a poor alcoholic who was hung like a horse but couldn’t buy all of the groceries for chili, and a lying alcoholic scumbag that promised me the world and then cheated on me because…well… he was cheater.  I shed many tears for these men but looking back now….I’m grateful that I got away.

BTW – wanna be cool guy married a model….FML!!!!

8. If you had to pick one song to be your personal anthem, what would it be?

Brian Adams – When You Love Someone

Because this is how I want to love…

This is how I want to be loved…

And even though I’ve been hurt because I have loved…I will never stop hoping to love again.

9. Describe the best experience you’ve had as a blogger when a stranger has reached out to you about your blog.

Blogging is new for me so every single time someone “likes” or starts following me I feel like I’ve won the lottery.  For years, I had wanted to start a blog but never felt that my stories were funny or interesting enough.  My last blog post, “You Know Your Boyfriend Is A Cheap Fuck When He Puts _ _ _ _ _  _ _ _ In Your Vag!” received 13 likes (mostly from strangers), 2 comments (from strangers) and my blog was viewed 49 times that day.  These stats are huge for me and my little blog.  It makes me feel really good to know that people are liking what they are reading.  Thank you.

10. Have you ever had a romantic encounter that was so fantastic it should have been in a movie? What the heck happened?

My prom night.  My entire senior year of HS I had been crazy in love with my best friend Ryan.  He wasn’t interested in anything more than a friendship and I just wouldn’t give up on him.  I needed a date for the prom and asked him to go…as friends.  Regardless, I was looking forward to this night for months.  After the prom we got into the limo and headed to NYC.  Before I knew it, Ryan leaned over and kissed me.  I couldn’t believe it!  The guy I was infatuated with, who repeatedly told me he wasn’t interested – kissed me!!!  When the kiss ended…all of my friends started clapping.  They all knew how special this was for me.  Best night of my life.

11. If you could eat dim sum off of any naked male celebrity over 60, who would it be?

Well as of last Sunday it appears to be Martin Sheen…age 73.  But if I ignored my subconscious Tom Selleck would be the man!  Still sexy after all these years…age 68.  I’d like to see what he could do with that mustache….

I’m embarrassed to say that I do not have 11 blogs that I can nominate at this time.  I’m still new at this so for now I nominate the following 5 blogs:

 Absurdbeats
