Liebster and Mixed Nuts

Hey, everybody. We're on the downhill slide to that holiday where we relax by trying to do too much. Every year, we swear never again, but here we go anyway...

Dana tagged me with the Liebster Award. Thank you, Dana! I will cooperate as best I can.

I'm supposed to share eleven facts about me. At this point, I have no more secrets that I haven't already revealed (which makes them pretty lousy as secrets go). So we are reduced to Bonnie trivia.
  1. I once worked as a lifeguard
  2. I like to garden, but don't get time to do it well
  3. I was on the school newspaper staff in high school and college
  4. I have performed on stage
  5. I also worked backstage
  6. I had a vanilla blog before MBS
  7. I took it down mostly because I lost interest
  8. I much prefer to blog about spankings
  9. We saw Sir Paul McCartney in concert
  10. Randy loves to watch apes at the zoo
  11. A big pile of laundry is calling my name
OK, now, I'm supposed to answer Dana's questions.
  1. What is your most treasured possession? - My wedding band because of all it symbolizes
  2. What is on your bucket list? - Lots of things, but to name one, I would like to visit Yellowstone
  3. What historical figure would you like to meet? - Mark Twain
  4. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? - I'd go back to having just one chin
  5. What is your favorite movie? - Casablanca
  6. If you were shipwrecked, what three people from blogland would you like to be there with you? - The ones who know how to fix a boat
  7. What person from blogland would you most like to meet? - Pretty much all of them
  8. How many pets do you have? - Two
  9. What is your greatest fear? - Being old and sick and alone
  10. If you could go back in time and change one event in your life, what would it be? - I would teach a certain ex-boyfriend the concept of "No Means No"
  11. What is your favorite color? - OK, here's a surprise... It's red
Now, I'm supposed to tag eleven more bloggers. I thought about tagging eleven owners of dormant or dead blogs in hopes of coaxing one of them to return. But that seems a little too self-serving.

Let's try this instead. If there is anyone out there who has a blog and feels worthy of a Liebster (whatever that means), please consider yourself officially invited to participate by me. Here are your questions:
  1. What's the most foolish thing you've ever bought?
  2. What is your favorite body of water?
  3. After a spanking, lotion or no lotion?
  4. Would you skinny dip if you could be sure that no one would see?
  5. What was the first name of your first crush?
  6. What is your favorite flower?
  7. What is the best reason to have children?
  8. Do you snore?
  9. What is your favorite smell?
  10. Are you attracted to people in uniform?
  11. Do you prefer mountains, beach, forest, desert, grasslands, or city?

In other news, I have a question for you. Many readers noticed the problem we were having where giant photos from Tumblr were finding their way into my blogroll. I can assure you that this was not my doing. It appears to be a new "feature" of Blogger.

I addressed the problem by turning off the snippet feature where a few few lines from each post appear beneath the post title. Many more readers have noticed this change. They miss the snippets and so do I. So, the question is which is worse? Having no snippets or occasionally seeing a part of someone's anatomy that we have traditionally not featured on this blog? I don't like either option, but I really want to hear what you think.

Update: The snippets are back, at least for now.

Last and least, it is not advisable to compare the gentlemen of the house to the poultry commonly roasted at Thanksgiving. Doing so may cause the chef to become overcooked.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I vote for putting the snippets back. Have a wonderfully happy Thanksgiving, Bonnie! ♥

I'm going to attempt to answer your questions! Thanks for the suggestion Bonnie!

I like the snippets. I took off the tumlr accounts from my blogrolls and kept the snippets.

Keep the snippets , that's how we know who is talking about what aspect of Spanking!

Thank you Bonnie for the ad, you have inspired me to go on!

Happy Turkey Day from an ex-lurker!

Like the snippets. Tumblr, not so much. Your Blog, your call.

You only need to look at one Tumblr to see all the pictures as they are constantly reposted.

Hi Bonnie,

I was a lifeguard too, when I still looked good in a bathing suit:) You came up with some great questions for the next round of players.

I like the snippets too, although they aren't terribly useful for tumblr blogs anyway. Since it only happens occasionally (so far) I would suggest removing the offending blogs as the problem occurs. It might be informative to relocate them to a separate blogroll where you can turn snippets on and off, and see if the giant pictures are a one off or a regular happening for specific blogs.

Dear Bonnie, first let me wish you a very happy Thanksgiving Day, with all the trimmings on your table. Your favorite movie is Casablanca. I have visited that city in Morocco, but somehow I missed Bogart, and Bergman. Although I once interviewed Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton here in New York. My favorite color is also red. Even better, when I see a woman's spanked bare that same color.

One other thing Bonnie, As to whom I would enjoy meeting in bygone history. It would be William Shakespeare. I would like to ask him does he enjoy the spanking scenes, in "Kiss Me Kate".

Bleuame said...

Oh! Being a little bogged down of late, I think I'll play along and answer your questions--they sound fun! :o)
Have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving!

ronnie said...

I'd like the snippets too.

We saw Sir Paul last year, great concert.

Have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving, Bonnie.

Hi Bonnie,

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Also, just now getting around to thanking you for being the first follower of "Our Distant Love". Trying to get the hang of blogging and it's not as easy as all the experienced bloggers make it look like;).

I vote for the snippets, also! It helps a lot.

Bonnie, I saw Pavorotti, the renowned opera singer perform here in New York, at the Met. What a voice. And in London at the British Museum, I saw Paul McCartney's hand written first draft of his song "Yesterday's".

Irishey said...

Hi, Bonnie. I hope you're having a terrific Thanksgiving! Blessings to you and yours.

Laundry has no respect, calling you on a holiday. ;-)

I need to finish my Liebsters. I think it's meant to "show the love!"

I like the snippets, and activated those on my blog. Pop-up patooties - no thanks. I like to choose whose parts I see, and when I see them, or if I see them at all.

MrBBSpanker said...

Ah... the snippets are back! :)

Jenny said...

I like the snippets, but if I have to choose between having the snippets and not seeing offensive photos, I'd pick doing whatever you have to do to avoid the photos.
