The Liebster Award [Lobster]

Apparently, this is a thing we do. To what purpose, I think, we are all still figuring out. I guess the “Award” has a positive, success oriented ring to it. Like we’ve done something right. That in itself shocks me. I have no idea what Liebster means, though it does sound an awful lot like Lobster. I mean, I could start the Lobster Award right now and people would do it because, well, it’s an award after all.

The Blogging Detective very kindly nominated me for this. It shocked me, of course, that someone would think of me, for any reason. I then proceeded to give my Oscar speech, though I really do not know why. Anyway, once the realization kicked in, I was excited and flattered that someone actually read my blog. I then did feel a little jealous, because I had never thought that someone apart from me would read my blog, since it is, mine. I then did contemplate deactivating it.

I don’t really post much, in fact I only post once in ten days. But I decided to do this lobster πŸ˜‰ just the once for my amazing friend. The next part of this, till my answers is a copy paste. Apparently they are the rules, though I have never fully understood what the word means.

My Answers

If you were emperor/empress of the world, how would you use your power?

Well, I’m an anarchist. So I would probably vacate my throne.

How often do you daydream, and about what?

All the time. About Pirate Lords and Treasure Island and magic and ships and the sea and wizards, gnomes and sex [Not with Gnomes of course]

What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?

There was this Lemongrass Ice cream I once had, it was amazing.

What inspires you?

Anything that seems to have a part of someones soul inside of it.

Braveheart/Gladiator/The Ninth Symphony/ Brahms Piano trio no.1/ Michelangelo’s’ work

Define love

The feeling of sparkles and bobbles inside your head

What is your favorite color and why?

Turquoise/ Baby pink

Because there so luring and seductive and just filled up, not like other colours

Do you like to travel? and if you do, where would you like to go?

Oh yes I love to travel. I’d like to be to Egypt, haven’t been there yet. And see the tombs and the Valley of Kings, Visit my great-great-great grand father. And Greece. I’m a bit ashamed of not having been there, but its got all those myths and temples and stories and it’s such a beautiful land filled with so so much magic

How did you think of your user name? (the one that is displayed when you comment)

Well, it’s my name, so I found it kind of logical to use my name as my user name since I assumed the user name needed to be my name, unless you are implying that my user name is in fact, not my own name, and if you believe that the aforementioned statement is is true then I must assure you that my user name, is indeed, my actual name.

What is your favorite book or book series?

The Lord of the Rings

What is your writing style?

I really don’t know. I’ve put it under abstract absurd literature but sometimes it feels more – something else.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

A tiger grrrrrrr [At least that’s what the Duchess says πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ ]

No seriously, I’d probably want to be an Eagle.

I did do a lot of research to find my spirit animal. I met a lady on my travels who was a shamanic priestess and after doing some joint meditation/prays [ I was praying to get a bear or a cheetah or an elephant, she was doing the real thing with gongs and a conch] She told me she saw a deer. I convinced myself it was a stag though. I lost faith in the spirit animal thing soon afterward because I do not want to be a deer.


So that’s me.

I feel relieved I’ve finally done this, It’s been pending for so long, because I don’t really do this and It feels so unlike what I write.

It’s been such a short time since I opened up the gates of Bjornstort [My Castle] and it’s been really great, and I’ve made new friends and found some magic

Here are my nominees for the Lobster award. Or Crab award. I’m no one to judge what you like πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ I do have some of my own strange fetishes. Lucky for me The Duchess is as adventurous as I am. Enough for now.


Cyranny’s Cove [I know you’ve done a bunch of these but this time it’s a Count asking]

Fuck the lemonade [not the lemon]

Born in Providence [ Or E, I didn’t know what to call it]

Rachel Mckee


Magick mermaid

Caribou Crossing

Thoughts in life

Charlie Zero the poet [I’m pretty sure you don’t do these]


Live your ultimate dream

Sascha Darlington [ Is the darlington actually the name?]

I’m probably going to wake up and remember more people I should have added here, but after all it’s just a lobster.

And my questions –

What makes you cry, laugh and puke?

Where’s your magic and how did you find it/not?

Tell me a story from before you were five.

What’s your happiest memory related to a fish? [ And otherwise in general]

And well, Happy Valentines ❀ ❀

The Count Gustaf

  1. There is a little bit of sugar I add to a spicy dish for full flavored experience .
    Good to read you works Count .
    You may be disturbed by this information- I have been trying to locate you for many centuries .. and with this award nomination the word sea brought in clues to find you . Like a message in a bottle. Also – there is at the least , one secret you may need to know – but it can only be whispered . It’s about memories and such things imaginary . You know it’s true of course .
    Find me . Anytime ..sometime.

  2. Ah finally. I’m intrigued. I’m not disturbed, I’m excited, well what’s the point of living centuries and not leaving a random message in a bottle. However, the smart ones do seem to pick it up. I have a feeling I know this secret of memories and such things imaginary. You excite me my dear sugar – spice. I will find you


  3. Fun fact. Most people in the Balkan speak English very well, and many are better than me. Also, it is usual for a Balkan folk to speak at least two different languages and it varies from city to city. Some could speak German and Russian, while a city next to it learns French and English. πŸ˜€

  4. Unfortunately I only know English. I do know a few things in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian. I know Spanish and Russian enough to get by. I understand the words, but hard to form a sentence on my own. πŸ˜€ Our school system reform made kids today learn two languages, and if they are going in med (nurses, veterinarians, pharmacy etc.) school or biology classes, they also learn Latin.

  5. I meant to say yesterday, and got so enamored with the poetry (that I ahem … had missed) that I saw you wanted to see Greece and Egypt. I used to travel a lot when I was younger and I took a wonderful two-week trip which was a one-week land tour of Greece and the second week was a Greek cruise and we had various ports of call, among them a one-day stop in Egypt. There were other stops in Turkey (Kusadasi) and some Greek islands as well. And there is so much history and culture in all those places – you would love it. Put it on your bucket list.

  6. Congratulations on your Lobster Reward! You should post more often but I’m guessing it’s hard because Counting takes up so much time? πŸ˜‰
