Blog Awards Reimagined

So Heather at Seasoned with Sarcasm nominated me for the Liebster award…

liebsterblogging

And I thought we were friends…  Just kidding Heather, I’m thankful.   Everyone should go over there after reading this post.  She wrote the Girl-Crush Zooey Deschanel guest post, in addition to a ton of other awesome stuff on her own site.

For those of you not familiar with blogger awards, there are a few of these things circulating.  There’s Liebster, Versatile Blogger, Sunshine Blogger, Inspirational Blogger, etc. etc. etc.  They all pretty much work the same way – you get nominated by another blogger and then pass on the award to others like a chain letter.  Some, like the Liebster, involve answering a series of questions about yourself before sending along.  I really do appreciate the thought and it often is fun to read “secrets” about other bloggers.  It also does introduce you to other blogs you may not have seen before, and vice-versa.  That said, these things usually die in my inbox.

I had an idea for a blogger award that I still may launch – The Smokin’ Hot Blogger Award.  It’s where you nominate a bunch of other bloggers that are, well, smokin’ hot.   And I’m not talking about beautiful on the inside, because that could apply to 99% of bloggers, right?  I’m talking shallow, appearances-only judgment.  And there are several blog names I can rattle off right now that would deserve this award.

There are a couple problems, though.  First, I’d REALLY hate to exclude a person even if I think that person is so ugly they make Lyle Lovett look like Ryan Reynolds.

The other problem is that I think there’s a lot of false advertising with profile pictures.   So while a blogger’s gravatar picture may look like this…

 beautiful woman

In real life, they look Mickey Rourke….

This is a problem because I don’t want to be known as the guy with poor taste in appearances.  I got integrity and shit like that.

Anyway, I haven’t responded to one of these awards things in a while, so I thought it’d be fun.  This particular one involves answering questions about me, then passing on more questions for others to answer.

I thought I’d shake things up a little.  I’m going to ask the questions, but I’m inviting you to answer one or more of the questions in the comment section.   I worked long and hard on these things, so please do answer if you’re in the least bit inspired.  And if you see any good answers (or responses from hot bloggers) click over and check out their blog!

blogging

First the ones that Heather posed –

1. If you could live anywhere, and money were not an issue, where would you live and why?

– St Barth’s. Tropical, French food, boobs everywhere, and celebrity sightings.

2. What is your go to meal when you’re having people over?

– Beef short ribs braised in Pinot Noir.

3. If a zombie apocalypse were to actually happen, would your strategy be to hunker down in your home and wait it out, or pack up what you can and seek a more secure form of shelter? (the zombie apocalypse version could vary – 28 Days Later scenario where they die off – best case. Worst case – Walking Dead where they NEVER DIE!!!)

– As Season 2 of TWD showed when Herschel’s farm got overrun, no home is perfectly safe.  Keep moving.

4. What is your favorite music to cook to?

– Anything by Kanye West or Snoop Dogg

5. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

–  Drivers who don’t go the speed limit with no one in front of them.

6. Describe your blog in one sentence.

– Ostensibly a blog that takes a humorous approach to food and wine but I rarely write about wine so it really should be  called food-and-music-and-hot-celebrity-women.com but that’s way too long for a URL so I’ll just stay where I am and hope that no one calls me out on it.   (No one ever said it couldn’t be a run-on sentence.)

7. If you could have celebs over for a dinner party, who would be your top 3 invitees?

– Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, and Kayden Cross.  Or just Willie Nelson.

8. For the rest of your life, you can only watch one movie. What movie would that be?

– Damn, this is tough.  Maybe Superbad? Or maybe an awesome porno. 

9. If your life were a sitcom, what would the show title be?

– “Better than Emeril’s Sitcom”

10. Beef or chicken?

– Pork.

11. What do you do to relax?

– Play the piano or guitar

blogging

So now my questions for you –

1 – What would you want served as your last meal?

2 – Red, white, or Rose?

3 – What is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen sparrow?

4 – Who’s the hottest blogger NOT named “The Food and Wine Hedonist?”

5 – What are your favorite pizza toppings?

6 – If someone said you can have x-ray vision but you’d be permanently cross-eyed, would you take it?

7 – How accurate is your blog profile picture?

8 – Got any naked pictures of your significant other?

9 – Do you want any?

10 – What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

11 – What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?

12 – Who’s your daddy?

Answer Away!!!

    In no order: favorite toppings – pepperoni and bacon or mushrooms, peppers, and onions (only at UNOs). My profile picture is of the inside of the Boston ballet so not accurate at all. I prefer a white wine when I decide to drink it, but nothing beats a good red with a thick steak. 🙂

      I always wondered what your Gravatar was! Well, it’s an accurate picture of the Boston ballet, at least.

    Job well done. I have pushed the awards back in my head because I don’t know what to do with them. Unlike you, I seem to dwell in spheres were I would think the Smokin’ Hot award would fizzle out fast…

    To your questions:

    1-My grandma’s bone marrow dumpling soup which I have not had in over 13 years because she died.

    2-All of them, I guess. But generally Riesling.

    3-Yeah, right…what?

    4-I don’t deal well with exclusionary questions. Since you are clearly my no. 1 answer, I cannot for my life come up with no. 2.

    5-Tough. Either mushrooms, pepperoni, onions and ham OR ham and pineapple OR tuna and onions.

    6-Naaaah.

    7-Taken in summer 2010…and I don’t age.

    8-Invoking my right to remain silent.

    9- Dito.

    10-Waldmeister (a German herb that is somewhere between mint and lemony, makes the best ice cream in the world)

    11-I’d say they all came straight from Hollywood: the one Harry Potter movie I watched until I fell asleep after 20 minutes would come to mind. I avoid movies that are not foreign and/or have none of those laurel crowned awards notices on them.

    12-Sorry, you won’t be meeting him…:(

    First off, thanks for doing a follow up post to your nomination. I love reading your blog, and feel like if we hung out in person, we’d be enjoying great food, good beers, and lots of sarcastic (yet deep) conversation!

    1 – What would you want served as your last meal?
    lasagna, porterhouse steak, baked potato and big giant porter or stout.

    2 – Red, white, or Rose?
    I like them all, but prefer the sweet or slightly sweet wines.

    3 – What is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen sparrow?
    um, what?

    4 – Who’s the hottest blogger NOT named “The Food and Wine Hedonist?”
    Me. Just kidding. I meant me.

    5 – What are your favorite pizza toppings? mushrooms, artichokes, bacon, goat cheese, fresh mozz.

    6 – If someone said you can have x-ray vision but you’d be permanently cross-eyed, would you take it?
    Hell no.

    7 – How accurate is your blog profile picture?
    it’s totally accurate. I actually updated it when I went from brunette to bright candy red. I like to be up to date and all.

    8 – Got any naked pictures of your significant other?
    If I told you, I’d have to kill you.

    9 – Do you want any?
    I don’t need pics. I can see it whenever I want!

    10 – What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
    Mint chocolate chip, followed closely by Rocky Road.

    11 – What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
    I have a list, but since I wipe the movie from my memory when it’s horrible, I can’t recall them.

    12 – Who’s your daddy?
    How about a quote to represent – Mama tried to raise a lady but daddy won – he raised a lady who won’t take shit from anyone.

    And the Smokin’ Hot Blogger Award? I dig that idea. Can it be big scale bloggers? Like Food Network Stars? Because Jamie Oliver….well…hello. That accent…his deep passionate love of food. ya. Or Chuck Hughes. All those tattoos….and the love of cooking. Word.

    • thefoodandwinehedonist
      April 29, 2013

      I’d lean towards regular everyday people because those Food Network Stars have stylists. That said, Chrissy Teigen at sodelushious.com is famous and smoking hot without the make-up. So I guess we can include those guys. Wonder if they’ve responded to blog award like Liebster?!?

      As for passion for cooking and accents… isn’t that a little too “deep” for the award?

  7. seasonedwithsarcasm
    April 29, 2013

    I have a thing for accents, specifically British and Australian. I think Jamie’s accent makes him more attractive. Remove the accent and he’s just ok. With accent? HOT! That’s a shallow enough reason to find him attractive right?

    1 – Ginger garlic eggplant from Mon Jin Lau in Troy. Or a really amazing cheeseburger and fries.

    2 – Red, white, or Rose? Red. Or white. NEVER rose. Blech.

    3 – Super speedy.

    4 – SO many, it’s hard to say. I’m going to go with a three-way tie between Dena at 40 Fit in the Mitt, Lynn at The Actor’s Diet, and Janetha at meals & moves. Super hotties. 🙂

    5 – I’m a purist, so my first choice is either pepperoni or ground beef. But I also like, at different times and in different combos: garlic, spinach, feta, and olives (green or black, never both together), and pepperoncini.

    6 – Nope.

    7 – Quite.

    10 – Lately it’s been Ben & Jerry’s What a Cluster.

    11 – Basket Case.

    12 – I have several!

    April 29, 2013

    1 – What would you want served as your last meal?
    Enough alcohol so I can do the job myself.

    2 – Red, white, or Rose?
    Red. If I’m drinking, I want to get drunk. I ain’t got time for whites or roses.

    3 – What is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen sparrow?
    What do you mean: African or European?

    4 – Who’s the hottest blogger NOT named “The Food and Wine Hedonist?”
    I’m passing on this one, so as not to incriminate myself. Besides that I just got started, so I haven’t had much exposure yet.

    5 – What are your favorite pizza toppings?
    cheese

    6 – If someone said you can have x-ray vision but you’d be permanently cross-eyed, would you take it?
    No. And to be honest, I don’t think I would anyway. Some things are better left unseen.

    7 – How accurate is your blog profile picture?
    Very. It’s just a couple months old.

    8 – Got any naked pictures of your significant other?
    No. Naked is gross.

    9 – Do you want any?
    No. Naked is gross. And besides that I have no significant other, with no plans to change that any time soon. Significant others are also gross. (In some ways I have never surpassed an age 9 mentality.)

    10 – What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
    Chocolate with chocolate chips.

    11 – What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
    Daredevil

    12 – Who’s your daddy?
    Mom always told me I was the result of something called “immaculate conception.” I assume this means it was some random truck driver.

    4 – Who’s the hottest blogger NOT named “The Food and Wine Hedonist?”
    Is there any other?

    5 – What are your favorite pizza toppings? Cheese. Tomato. Cheese.

    6 – If someone said you can have x-ray vision but you’d be permanently cross-eyed, would you take it? No.

    • thefoodandwinehedonist
      April 29, 2013

      Unbelievably, you are only the second one to get #4 correct. No one’s provided the right answer to #8….

  11. Cowboys and Crossbones
    April 29, 2013

    Ha! I bet no one answers #8 honestly…!

  12. teacherpatti

    2 – Red, white, or Rose? Beer 🙂

    5 – What are your favorite pizza toppings? Mushrooms, yellow peppers

    6 – If someone said you can have x-ray vision but you’d be permanently cross-eyed, would you take it? No. Since I’m a teacher of the visually impaired I work with kids who have amblyopia and it really messes with you.

    7 – How accurate is your blog profile picture? Pretty close!

    8 – Got any naked pictures of your significant other? Just in my mind 🙂
