The Versatile Blogger Award Nomination

I was so happy and really humbled to receive another new nomination: “the Versatile Blogger Award” from “Ramyani Bhattacharya”: Tryst With Mind

Ramyani is a very talented and kind blogger; writing is intrinsically embedded in her personality. She loves to pen down her thoughts and feelings. Without it, she would really lose her individuality as she’s describing on her blog. 😊

She loves the Avengers and Thor mostly βš’
Family is so important in her life. So go ahead and check her blog for more:
Thank you so much Ramyani for this great nomination 😊

Thank you so much Ramyani for this great nomination 😊

The Versatile Blogger Award was created to celebrate blogs who have unique content, strong writing, and beautiful images or photographs. I feel special to receive such a nomination. Here are the rules:

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
  3. Unveil seven facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate other bloggers that bring joy into your daily life .

When someone asks me to speak about myself, I often stop and wonder what I should say about myself? I don’t actually like to speak about myself!
Anyway this award is about mentioning 7 facts about me so I have to reveal some facts right?

7 facts about me:

1.I trust few, and I hardly turn my back to people!My trust in human beings is decreasing day after day, I respect all as human beings but I’m so cautious whom to let into my life. I’m super selective.
I love William Shakespeareβ€˜s quote: Β« Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. Β» 

2. I had a bad experience working with women, having a woman as a boss in particular, even though I support women rights and empowerment, but I don’t support the arrogant and bitchy attitude, the hysterical personality.
I guess it’s easier to work with men. It’s my experience, not an insult to women. I lost a job I love because of that.

3. I love speed and I drive with style! I enjoy the challenge and it happened that driving here is a big challenge, so challenge accepted! Even though I have an economy car (for now)
I’m a big fan of Fast & Furious movies. Paul Walker is a huge loss ❀

4. I survived many incidents, from war to car accidents (I was never driving) and I wrote about some of them in the post: My mother’s Angels:

5. My father wanted to name me Ingrid, guess he was a fan of Ingrid Bergman, but obviously my mother won. She was jealous I guess hahaa

6. I have a very good sense of humor, a trait that only my friends know and my best friends mostly…But I don’t like people who take everything in a ridiculous and silly way just because they’re afraid of pain.
We must be wise to know when to be silly and when to be serious.  

7. Scents mean a lot to me, I have a very sensitive nose and hygiene is very important to me. Reason why I don’t consider smoking cool, it actually disgusts me.

My Nominees:

Hope you enjoyed! Please leave your thoughts and comments. πŸ™‚

  1. Yet again! Now you’ve slayed them all!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Congratulations and celebrations! Woohoo! 😊
    I would love to have a car ride with you one day! Haha.
    Ingrid is a really beautiful name, what does it mean? my curious mind wants to know
    Anyone can conclude from your posts that you have an amazing sense of humour I’m jealous by the way. Haha. Just kidding
    Smoking is so not cool, I too don’t support it.
    Sorry to hear about your job and I hope you’re better off now!❀😊

    1. Hahahha when I think it will be my last nomination πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Thank you so much dear, appreciate your kind words 😊
      Oh you’re more than welcome of course to have a ride even though my friends will not recommend it but hey, don’t listen to them, they’re just jealous 😁😁 (you should see their faces πŸ˜‚)
      Well Ingrid as per Google means beautiful so you were right hahaa beautiful name indeed for a very beautiful woman back then!
      You’re jealous? Why? I mean I can make you laugh πŸ˜‰ (don’t worry at all <3)
      Even if people want to try smoking as curiosity or they simply are addicted, for me it’s everything except “cool”
      Appreciate your kind sympathy ❀ well it was long time ago, but it’s a pity how much a bad and crazy attitude can ruin!
      Always a pleasure communicating with you ❀

      1. Your nominations are never going to end!😁
        I can imagine your friends reaction! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Wow! Beautiful meaning of a beautiful name! I think you truly justify the name, beautiful both inside and out!❀
        I mean I’m jealous because you have such a good sense of humour, something I intend to inculcate.
        I too love talking to you via comments! Keep well! 😊
        ( and don’t forget to keep entertaining me with your posts!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ )

      2. nor yours dear hahah πŸ˜‚
        Oh their reaction is pricelessπŸ˜‚
        Yes this is should be my name but my mother won with Huguette πŸ™‚ Thank you for the heartwarming words though ❀ ❀
        Well don’t be, you’ll practice also and master it πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
        I should post something except these nominations hahah πŸ˜‚ let’s hope you’ll stay entertained when I start to rant hahaha

      3. You’re very welcome❀😊
        Ahh, looks I’ve got to practice some stuff!πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Yes yes, come back soon with another spectacular post! Awaiting and waiting and waiting…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      4. Yes you have some work to do πŸ˜‚
        Thank you Priya, it’s so motivating and wonderful ❀️ 😊😊I will soon πŸ™πŸ»

  2. Aww. Thanks Huguetta.

    Seven Facts… Hmm πŸ€”

    1) I’m in my fifth decade. I wish the world would slow down for a moment so that I can absorb more of life.
    2) I love chocolate. I can’t get enough of the sweet stuff. It’s a good job I love walking and the outdoors, or I’d be 700lbs in weight!
    3) I only learned to swim when I was in my late twenties. I was terrified of water as a youngster. I guess being as buoyant as a brick would do that to you.
    4) I’m agnostic, but have often prayed to ‘God’ in the hope that the divine can hear me.
    5) I love tea. I can’t drink enough of the stuff. When one cup is empty, I refill almost straight away.
    6) Farting. I tend to fart a lot. Maybe it’s a man thing. Its a good job hundreds of miles, and the sea separate my frequent gusts from your sensitive nose 😁
    7) Oh yeah.. I pee a lot too because I drink too much tea πŸ˜‚

    1. hhahahahha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ so basically drinking, farting, peeing…repeat πŸ˜‚
      thank you for your answering so fast πŸ™‚ If you want, you can make a post
      Chocolate is painfully great, I can say the same especially about weight haha
      I’m sure God can hear you, hope your payers will be answered
      You should visit Egypt, tea is life there, here we’re more into coffee
      Glad to know more about you and wish you the best of luck 😊

  3. Such an interesting read about you. I am fascinated to know more of you. Looking forward to future posts. Many congratulations. – Cezane

  4. Bravo… Et toutes mes fΓ©licitations pour cette nomination… en deux mots et sans dΓ©tours… vous mΓ©ritez d’Γͺtre nominΓ©e pas seulement pour vos publications ! Mais aussi par votre personnalitΓ© et votre tempΓ©rament gΓ©nΓ©reux…. Encore une fois bravo…πŸ‘

    1. Merci Sofiane, c’est tellement gentil de dire cela! J’apprΓ©cie beaucoup votre gentillesse! Merci pour lire et pour l’encouragement et l’admiration, toujours ravie d’avoir un tel soutien d’une jolie communautΓ©. Merci bien 😊

  5. Wow! another award… probably I’d have to say you are the blogger I’ve witnessed receiving the highest number of nominations per short period of time… you’re the blogger with the highest-ever nominations (I’ve personally witnessed) within a short period of time.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words! I’m humbled!
      I don’t know really, I appreciate the community support and their belief that I deserve such nomination…and I thank you again for stopping by and such nice interaction πŸ™‚

      1. Your welcome. Such regular nominations show that people hold your blog in high regard. You might have to employ some of us to help you make posts in response to future nominations when your followers reach 50,000, 100,000, 1 million, or more, etc, etc. πŸ˜€πŸ€£πŸ˜œ

      2. hahahah OMG! I can imagine πŸ˜‚ so nice of you to say that! Hope I will be able respect each and every fellow blogger, the number doesn’t really matter if I will not be able to keep a certain level of respect and loyalty 😊

      3. you are right: the number doesn’t matter, but from my understanding of your posts and interactions, it won’t be surprising to see you command a certain level of respect and loyalty that could rake in a large number of followers. People do have large numbers, not because they want it, but because their internet, web or blogging aura respectfully attracts a large following…

      4. I really don’t mind at all but I wish I would be able to maintain the mutual respect and admiration that’s it πŸ™‚

  6. Brilliant Huguette. Congratulations. Although at this point there should just be an award in your name πŸ™‚
    I would agree with that Shakespeare quote. Words to live by.
    Love you answers. You get more intriguing each day.
    One thing though. If I ever have the pleasure of going to Lebanon I’m never getting into a car with you πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. hahahha my friends will certainly agree with you πŸ˜‚ don’t worry I can understand and you can always use Uber, it’s safer πŸ˜‚
      Appreciate your kind words Chris, award in my name is a bit overwhelming, not yet, I still have a lot to do to deserve such an honor πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much for being a great part of this community support 😊😊

      1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ so you’re telling me getting in a car with some random stranger is safer! Just with what ‘style’ do you drive? I think this is one occasion I would worry for your friends πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Far as I’m concerned it would be an honour well deserved.
        I enjoy being part of the community so the pleasure is all mine 😊😊
        Take care Huguette, especially now I know you’re a crazy driver 😁
        Much love to your good self 😊

      2. Oh yes it certainly is πŸ˜‚ this random stranger will do anything to make you feel comfortable but about me I’ll do whatever it takes to reach my destination πŸ˜‚

        Oh don’t worry about them, they’re devils 😁
        I’m really humbled!
        And I wish you a bright writing future in this community and outside it 😊
        Guess my mother’s prayers are doing miracles as I wrote, And I thank you for your sweet concern 😊
        Much love to you and good night πŸŒ™πŸ’€

      3. πŸ˜‚ I hope your car has a very loud horn! πŸ˜‚
        There’s a saying: ‘birds of a feather flock together ‘. You’re saying your friends are devil’s…so…πŸ˜‚
        Hope you are having a great day. All good here this morning thankfully πŸ™‚
        Much love to you Huguette 😊

      4. Not loud enough to be honest πŸ€” I always wish I have a truck horn oh that would be amazing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        My day is good thank you, hope your son is better? Your day seems better so I guess he is 😊
        Much love to you as well 😊

      5. Good morning Huguette.
        πŸ˜‚ I can imagine how much that horn would be blown once you’re in the road πŸ˜‚
        Glad yesterday was good. Hope today is even better.
        And yes, you guessed right about my son. I’m only truly happy when he is 😊.
        Sorry for the late reply. Life has been messing with my schedule. Everything is good though.
        Best wishes for today.
        Much love to you 😊

      6. Good afternoon Chris and don’t worry at all πŸ™‚ Life can get hectic! Glad your day was good and hope it will always get better 😊
        Well believe it or not, this horn has saved my life plenty of times because I have no trust in most drivers and I’m usually right πŸ™‚ But I still want a stronger horn haha I want them to shake and move faster πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ have a great day and much love to you 😊

  7. Congratulations again! I loved reading your life facts… I had a female boss as well and you are so right about the bitchiness! … Thank you for the nomination, I’ll give it a go if I can think of anymore facts about myself… πŸ˜†

    1. Thank you Suki 😊 Glad you loved reading and glad someone can relate to the bitchiness! πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘ my pleasure dear and I say you start repeating hahah πŸ˜‚

  8. Good Evening Ingrid ! πŸ˜‰
    Hope you’re doing good and had a great Monday

    By the time I give a visit to WordPress
    I see your Nomination list already present there
    Haha! ✌ ” The Great Huguette ”

    Your answers undoubtedly are worth a while to read
    Bcuz I always find your answers way much similar and mindset of yours quite relatable with mine πŸ˜‡
    It actually relates with my thought process
    ‘ Likemindedness ‘ probably πŸ™Œ

    Here in Mumbai (India) driving and parking is an absolute challenge tooπŸ˜“
    I invite you whole-heartedly here to prove your skills
    Also, vil show you mine too 😎✌

    Hoping Probably in future it might happen that I may visit your place for a long drive with you in your busy streets πŸ˜ƒπŸš— Hope you won’t mind.

    Anyway, hearty congratulations for the award like always ❀
    Much love and power to you ✊

    1. Good evening 😊 so you’re siding with my father πŸ˜‚
      Thank you Abhijeet for the heartwarming words, people are so kind to nominate me and I’m always humbled!

      Like-mindedness is such a true fact and glad to know there are more similar thoughts we share πŸ‘Œ And I’m ready for the challenge, here or in India 😎
      And sure you’re more than welcome for a ride whether in the busy streets or the highways for speed haha

      Thank you again for the kind words and for being a part of this supportive community, hope you had a nice weekend and good beginning of the week as well 😊

      1. Morning Ingrid ! πŸ˜›
        I had a great weekend and having good beginning of the week as well

        Thank you!
        Hope you’re doing great too

        I’m curious to be there for a long drive 😍

        Also, you’re most welcome here for the challenge ✌
        Let’s see in this Scorching Heat πŸ”₯
        How will you manage to ride in the busy
        Traffic and Signals testing your patience 😏

        Take Care!
        Have a great productive week ahead ✌

      2. When your comments start to go unanswered, then you will know you’re calling the wrong name 😌😌

        I’m doing great as well and who knows we might be able to have this ride or this challenge 😊

        In traffic it’s a bit challenging if the cars are moving a bit, if they’re not, it’s boring and frustrating!

        Take care too and have a great week 😊

      3. Haha! I don’t wanna get my comments unanswered

        So for now it’s quite clear,
        that name sets your temper high πŸ˜ƒ

        You aren’t short tempered, Are you? 😰

        And it’s lunch break here
        Wanna join me for lunch?

      4. Well not the name, the wrong name πŸ˜‰

        Don’t worry my short temper needs more than a joke to show up 😊
        Bon appétit! Still early here but I can join virtually 😊 enjoy your meal

      5. Hope you don’t get mad at me in coming time

        I trust your Maturity though ✌😊

        Guys over there might be drooling for you to be with you πŸ˜‰

      6. Believe me you will know when I’m mad 😊
        And it has nothing to do with maturity, it’s related to what I allow and what I don’t

        Well drooling is a big word I guess and it depends of the kind of people and education they have, it might be the case in some areas but in others, it certainly not but I’m flattered you think so πŸ™‚

      7. That’s what my point is dearo !

        Understanding the concept of ” What we must allow and what we mustn’t ” is largely contributed in how actually Matured the person is.
        You are one of them and
        Unfortunately there aren’t many .
        This is why people are unhappy .

        Anyway, how I wish if I had a colleague like you in my Workplace I would’ve worked with utmost enthusiasm β€πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ

      8. Let me disagree with your last point, I don’t think you will work with utmost enthusiasm dearo πŸ™‚ I’m not sure of that at all
        Appreciate your kind words and maturity is something I mastered long time ago, fortunately πŸ™‚ enjoy the rest of your day

  9. Congratulations, i will remember the quote.. For some reasons i have find out the same think, when is to many women at work the mess happens, smoking is really stinky, i enjoyed my read and is good to know more about youπŸ€—β€οΈhave a productive week!

    1. Thank you Ilona 😊 Appreciate your time to read and interact in your busy schedule! I’m glad we’re alike somehow and always appreciate your kindness and integrity ❀ Have a great evening and week

      1. Thank you HuguetteπŸ€—always glad to stop by, because i know i will have interesting read🎈

    1. Thank you Steve, appreciate it a lot and the speed doesn’t matter but your time to read and interact does 😊 Hope you’ll have a good day

      1. A regular working day 😊 thank you for asking! Hope you’ll have a great day ahead, you start it very early πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

      2. OMG 4 am! It’s not a morning Steve, it’s the middle of the night πŸ˜‚ for me at least haha
        Good for you πŸ‘ I know how healthy to start our day very early

      3. Most people don’t understand why I want to get up so early, it’s still dark out, they say! Soon it will be daylight at 4. I have been this way since I was a kid!πŸ˜‚

      4. This is great I guess! I wish I can start that early (I mean 6 am would be good haha) it’s a blessing really if one can do it! To start very early and enjoy the sunrise, the birds voice, the calmness 😊

      5. Yes, the calmness of early morning is the best part, getting things done before other things start getting in the way, good time to read blogs, then catching the sunrise and birds singing while sitting on my deck with a cup of coffee! Great way to start the day!πŸ˜€β˜•

      6. Very true. A shock this morning to find it snowing lightly again after 2 days of rain! But the sun is trying to break through the clouds now so it will warm up again.😁

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and for the kind words!
      Actually the win is that you were chosen by a fellow blogger for this nomination, that’s it, they think your blog is good so they nominate you.
      These awards were invented originally by bloggers to encourage other bloggers and they list some rules you have to follow like answering questions so the bloggers know more about you and nominate other bloggers.
      Hope I answered your question

  10. This is super cool! Congratulations! Your openness is refreshing.
    I’ve always had better experiences working with men bosses too. No offense, nothing personal-just the way it is. Keep up the great writing-and nice the way you add pictures too.

    1. Thank you for reading and for the nice interaction 😊 Yes I know what you mean, I didn’t mean any offense as well
      Appreciate your kind and encouraging words πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Š I just think with pictures haha I like a touch with humor as well

  11. Congrats again Huguetta! (I’m starting to wonder how many times I’ve said that haha :D) Again what a fun post to read!

    Yeah, she looks beautiful! And if your mother is the jealous type, then I completely understand why she doesn’t want you to be Ingrid.
    and you’re 3 answers… is that a test? I just finished drafting a blog post of why I love and hate blogging and one of the reason is people who don’t read but comment. You have the Fast and Furious poster but you wrote Fast & S…? Typo or not?

    …bad experience working with women
    Same here! This reminds me of my husband’s experience many years ago, when he was single. He traveled across Norway to offer his drawings. In one of the stores, he entered and asked the first worker he saw “Do you know where’s the manager?” Oh my god, that question made her verbally attack my husband. She was very angry because my husband couldn’t tell that she was the manager of the store and ask him if he thinks that she can’t be the manager because she’s a woman. As my husband said, how was he suppose to know her, it was the first time he entered the store. πŸ˜‚

    6: I agree but the meme is making it hard for me not to smile. πŸ˜€

    I don’t consider smoking cool, it actually disgusts me Same! The most terrible part of it is that sometimes people get annoyed at me when I try to stay out of their way, especially when I’m with my son. I respect people for what they like, but is it really hard to understand why I don’t want to get secondhand smoke on my son? Smoking can cause a lot of diseased and I don’t wish to take that chance on my health or my son…
    … oops, my comment seems so long now. I’ll stop now haha πŸ˜€

    1. Oh Jess you passed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ just kidding it was a typo mistake and good job πŸ‘ 😊you’re really reading
      Thank you, I guess you’re about to hit the congratulations record πŸ˜‚ πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ don’t even know what that is
      Ingrid Bergman was a beautiful woman, well my mother was more stubborn than jealous I guess, she made up her mind to call me Huguette 😊 we are a stubborn family hahah

      Well with all my respect to all women, they should control their hormones a bit more πŸ˜‚ it’s not acceptable! I lost a job I love but she drove me crazy that I smashed everything my hands could reach, I cursed her and almost broke the door and left to a public garden crying like babies haha
      Glad you liked the meme, I like a funny touch in my posts 😊

      Something about smokers really annoy me, is that you need to respect their shitty habit but they don’t respect your healthy choice! Really so weird and I always fight with my friends and family and totally understand especially with kids!
      Don’t worry about the length hahah what you want to say? Go ahead 😊

      1. Completely agree about the smoke thing and actually everything except for the last sentence. After reading it, I think my brain shrunk and hahahahahahaha was the only rolling around hahaha πŸ˜‚

  12. Congratulations! I am sorry I read your post late, got caught up in some work and couldn’t read anything. Anyway, you totally deserve the awards you know right? And I completely agree with the quote of Shakespeare. I have had some bad experiences with people whom I really trust, maybe used to trust. And now I am more cautious but it’s my drawback, I trust people very easily. I will start to learn driving from next year, i have heard it’s really fun as you say too. Ingrid is a good name tooπŸ˜‚

    1. Thank you dear for reading and don’t worry at all 😊😊 Appreciate your kind words as always! I’m humbled ❀
      You will face many challenges and they will all help you to learn, just don’t let anyone break you or change you
      Well driving is not so fun in some countries hahaha but it’s fun if you break some rules so you can cope with the shitty situation 😁
      Yes my father certainly agrees with you haha
      thank you again for the lovely interaction ❀

  13. As always… After reading this post as well, I got to know something interesting about youπŸ˜„ You have amazing sense of humour, no doubt on that. Your posts and comments say it allπŸ˜ƒ
    I love that Shakespeare quote. For someone who trust people easily these are the words to live by ❀
    I have very sensitive nose as well. Sometimes it really gives me headache, and I mean literally. If a person next to me is wearing a strong perfume, my sensitive nose sends signal to by brain that you better move somewhere else or be prepared for a headache πŸ˜‚ And yes,just like you, I don’t find smoking cool!
    It was a great read Huguette. I enjoyed it!😊
    Have a wonderful day!πŸ˜ƒ

    1. Good morning Swastik hope you’re having a good day! 😊
      Thank you for reading and for the lovely interaction as usually 😊
      Glad my sense of humor is showed, many people don’t read to tell, but you really read! ❀
      That Shakespeare quote is amazing and it’s great to apply it, imagine when he said it! So how come now!
      Oh I can relate, when I step in the elevator and someone is wearing a strong perfume, OMG, I frown and I hold my breath! I actually want to grab them and say: WTF is wrong with you? You smell like shit (okay I can’t do that hahah) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Smoking is not actually cool, and if you don’t find it cool well it’s very good for you and your health 😊
      Enjoy you day 😊

      1. LolπŸ˜‚ Even I feel like doing that but good for them we can’t do thatπŸ˜‚ Hahaha
        But thanks to these kind of people I can hold my breath for quite a long time, so in future, if I’m about to drown, I can manage to buy myself time before help arrives πŸ˜‚ (And I know can’t rely on help either, so this summer I’m planning to learn swimming πŸ˜…)

      2. Hahaha oh yes me neither! I don’t swim either, I should learn, I had fear of water for long time I just need to find time to learn πŸ™‚
        Yes you should, swimming is great and you will learn to hold your breath a little longer 😁😁
