The Honor of the Fruitcake

Her royal majesty AliceAtWonderland, Queen of the Internetz, dumped bestowed upon me the honor of the Fruitcake.

From my BFF4EVA Alice At Wonderland

(she also threatened to hurt Sad Pony, Squirrel, AND a bunch of puppies if I didn’t pass this on!)
(it’s ok, we’re BFF4EVS so she can threaten me all she wants)
Click here for the rules.

I get to pick exactly one person for this award. Since I’m a total badass, I’m picking two.

1. Rohan7Things, because I thought ‘Hey, I bet Rohan likes fruitcake!’. Do you like fruitcake, Rohan?
2. Twindaddy because I was thinking about how now that I’ve done the Fruitcake award and the tag, Alice won’t hurt Sad Pony and Squirrel. They’re Alice’s imaginary friends and my boyfriends. And Alice loves Blunt Life Coach who is Twindaddy’s alter ego, and I love Twindaddy, so this means that Twindaddy loves Sad Pony and Squirrel. Anyone who loves them deserves the Fruitcake award.

Now for The Tag. The Tag is a dangerous internet game where you could lose your loved ones if you fail to comply with the rules because the Queen of the Internetz is holding them hostage.

1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and eleven random facts about you.
3. Answer the questions given to you in the tagger’s post.
4. Create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/Twitter and let them know they’ve been tagged.

11 Random Facts about me:

  1. Sometimes I leave my sentences unpunctuated because I’m terrified of the dramatic period at the end. (<–Gah! There it is!)
  2. I like to eat straight out of a watermelon cut in half.
  3. I love bread. No, I don’t think you understand exactly how much I love it. I LOVE bread. All kinds, white, whole wheat, multi-grain, the icky dark brown colored ones, honey oat, garlic, French. All of them.
  4. The first time I heard of a flash mob, I thought well……I thought they randomly flashed people.
  5. Sometimes I like to save my word files as ‘this piece of crap’ so when Word asks before closing a file, it says “Would you like to save this piece of crap?” and I know it’s being sarcastic.
  6. As a kid I always thought antipasto was an organization that was really against pasta.
  7. I learnt Chinese nursery rhymes when I went to preschool in Singapore, and I can’t for the life of me remember a word. I do remember the Chinese gesture for time-out very well. Turns out the gesture for time-out is universally the same.
  8. These lists get really hard towards the end. But I’ve proven that threatening to hurt imaginary creatures works to get me to respond to them.
  9. I have a tiny crush on Spock. NOT Zachary Quinto as Spock, but Spock the character.
  10. I love Samsung phones because they’ll stay in one piece even if I hurl it across the room. Blackberry does not do that.
  11. I cheated and Googled ‘random questions’ after question 8 below. I’m bad.

Questions from Alice:

1. Why do you blog?  Why do any of us do this?  Why?
I blog because I like to. Meeting all these new people, hearing their stories, it’s fun. Plus you gotta let out all the bottled up craziness somewhere right?
2. Are you hungry?
Always. Do you have a cookie?
3. Is this eleven questions yet?
Sure it is! Isn’t it?
4. Is anyone still reading?
I am! Anyone else? Anyone? Helloooooooo?
5. Does my butt look big on this blog?
Noooooo! Unless you want it to, in which case, that is a fiiiiiine blog butt you got there.
6. Just how bored are you?
How bored are YOU?
7. How long can you hold your breath?  No reason.  Just curious.  Don’t look behind you.
About 30 seconds. I’m scared Alice.
8. Can you poop rainbows?  If so, we must meet.
No. How sad is that? But I read this thing about rainbow poop last year, and was waiting for the perfect time to bring it up!
9. Are you STILL reading?  You really are bored.
Is that even a question?
10. Is there a monster at the end of this post?
Yes. No. Don’t look behind you.
11. Does anyone know what I should write about?  That would like, be actually good?  Or mildly entertaining?  Or stupid and gross but kind of funny?
I went to a topic generator for this, It gave me ‘how to throw a proper party’. Or you could always write more about that fabulous rainbow poop.


  1. Talk of bowel movements, does it make you uncomfortable?
  2. What was it with evening gloves in history? Were women’s wrists too provocative?

  1. Oh wow! Ummm, oh God, I uh, I don’t really like fruitcake, I’m so sorry. My mum loves the stuff. I tasted it when I was a kid and went “ewwww” haven’t tried it since. But you know what! Maybe I’ll give it a shot next time I have the chance, my pallet has changed significantly since then 🙂

    Either way I’m super stoked to receive the award so thank you!! I’ll even come out of award retirement to accept and share this one 🙂

    So onto the rest. First of all super cute picture! You’ve got a reeeeealy long neck! Preschool in Singapore? Whoa! And yeah I really wasn’t ready for those six colored poops. Even the PT King can be caught off guard! I’ll tell you a secret though, when I was young I ate too many smarties and did a blue poo, according to my gradma anyway.

    Well, happy to be a fruitcake, no arguments there 🙂


  2. This feels like a trick. So I’m totaling doing it.

    In our family there is a fruitcake that has been ‘regifted’ since 1997. If you get it, it’s your job to disguise it in a clever box and wrap for the next honorable person to keep the whole year so this just makes me feel happy and at home. Thanks!

  3. Congrats on your award!!

    When you talk about kil– I mean getting rid of the bird it makes me think of Zoe Deshenel in Failure to Launch with the mockingbird or whatever out side her window! That was really random but I just thought of it…. But anyways… Congrats again!

  4. Squirrel and Sad Pony are relieved. Well, okay, Squirrel is relieved. Sad Pony was all “whatever, it was a good day to die . . .” ya know, he’s so positive. I can’t wait till twindaddy finds out he got the fruitcake! This will totally MAKE HIS DAY doncha think?

    • I was in the spam box?! Nooo! WordPress hates me. First they took me off the Reader (I got it fixed though), now the emails. Sigh. Maybe it’s all the nudity….
      Hugs, Stella!

  5. Dang I should have had a Samsung cell phone when I still had a cell phone. I’m a cellphone-chucker. Do you know of a stapler that doesn’t fall apart if it flies across the room?I throw those as well.

  7. Poop rainbow? But you can poop glitter, if you buy the glitter poop pills (Yes, I’m actually serious about that!).. Costs a lot – and you might get addicted!

  9. What is your favorite spaceship?

    That’s especially tricky because I love love love love love spaceships. My favorite part of most sci-fi movies are the ships. When Lucas started tinkering with Star Wars, my favorite revamped scene was the Falcon lifting off from Mos Eisley.

    I think my favorite one at the moment is the Whitestar from Babylon 5. Second favorite is the Millennium Falcon. Third favorite is probably a tie between Serenity and Nell from Battle Beyond The Stars. Your (space)mileage may vary.

    Does your name make any interesting anagrams?

    Yes. “Mangle Vastness.” Given how much I travel, that’s kind of appropriate, no?
