So someone was nice enough to nominate me for the Liebster blog award here, which was really very sweet of him. Anyways, he has given me a reason to put up a post a lot earlier than I probably would’ve , so, thanks, Shai!

So the rules are that you have to say 11 random things about yourself, then answer 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you, then nominate 11 more people and ask them your own questions. So here goes:

11 Random Things About Me

1. I live in Sokoto right now. This is always a surprise to people, so I just thought to put it out there.

2. I do not like talking about myself.

3. I’ve been told I’m very hard to understand. Several times. By several people.

4. I spend most of my free time in the horizontal position. Pervy minds feel free to roam; you roam in vain.

5. I’m getting really uncomfortable with this.

6. I secretly love horror movies. Real horror, not unnecessarily gory, screamy ones.

7. I like Nollywood. There, I said it.

8. Sometimes, I just want to lock myself away from humanity. If I were a “real” writer, I would probably vanish for months, typing away on an ancient typewriter in a darkened room in a quiet part of like, Spain, or something.

9. I stalk Lynxxx on twitter. My aspiration is to one day lick his face; it just looks so creamy.

  1. Thanks for nominating me. Thanks for nominating me first. Apologies for …err…insisting you nominate me. 😀

    To answer your 11 questions quickly, here goes:
    1. What is your favourite memory of all time?
    The days I’ve gotten academic awards. The day I had my best sex ever (—th Feb 2011). The day I got an international scholarship, and leaving Nigeria to UK. And any time I’ve publicly made my parents proud.

    2. Where is your happy place?
    Anywhere my laptop is, with fast internet, and quiet surroundings.

    3. What’s the best book you’ve ever read, and why?
    This is a tough one. I’ve read many great books, but I would have to say John Scalzi’s “Old Man’s War.” It’s a scifi novel, and it blew me off my feet when I read it in 2010. I quickly got the 3 sequels and have read them all too. 🙂

    Dogs.

    5. What would you love to do on a rainy day?
    Stay indoors with a lover, or a few loved ones, and gist and play games

    A machine to provide cheap and sustainable renewable energy for mankind, so we can be less dependent on fossil fuels

    7. Given the chance to hang out with a celebrity for a day, who would you pick?
    Dennis Rodman

    8. Who’s the one person guaranteed to put a smile on your face any day?
    A lady called Chioma 🙂

    9. Is your day job related to what you read in school?
    I’m not working right now. But my last job, and my future job, are related to electrical engineering

    10. Best TV series of all time?
    FRIENDS (….and Southpark)

    11. Name one thing you want to achieve before your next birthday
    Have my very own apartment/house

  2. Congratulations on the award. I like that in Random Thing number 5, you say you’re getting uncomfortable with this, and then you go on to add six more things.

    There’s a Nollywood?
