Black Cat Blue Sea Award, thanks Cosmic Explorer!

Black Cat Blue Sea Award

My dear blogging friend Cosmic Explorer has been so kind to nominate Dear Kitty. Some blog for the Black Cat Blue Sea Award.

This award is new for me. Thank you so much for this generous gesture! Though the Black Cat Blue Sea Award is the first time, you have been so kind to nominate my blog various times.

What is the Black Cat Blue Sea Award, according to its maker?

“This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.” – Ella

The rules of this award are:

Anybody nominated can nominate eight other bloggers.
The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator.
The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.
If any of the questions asked are offensive or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.
[And I would add: notify your nominees about their nominations at their blogs].

Cosmic Explorer’s three questions, and my answers, are:

1. What are your all time 5 favourite quotes?

A. “The cure for boredom is curiosity.
There is no cure for curiosity.”
Dorothy Parker

B. Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
Mark Twain

C. “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Albert Einstein

D. “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
Albert Einstein

E. My final  quote is long. It is the final part of a favourite film of mine.

This video is called The Great Dictator (1940) – Charlie Chaplin – Final Speech.

The text of that final speech is here.

Here is a video version of the speech with sound.

2. If you had a different name, would you be a different person?

I don’t know. I can’t compare my life with the name I do have with a fictional other life with a name I never had.

3. What is your favourite music/song? Please give me a link! Would love to listen to your favs!

A difficult question, as I have so many favourites. I would probably name three different songs on three consecutive days 🙂

My favourite of today is:

This is a video of X-Ray Spex live at the Roxy in London, playing Oh Bondage! Up Yours!

I am asking my nominees the same questions as Cosmic Explorer 🙂

My eight nominees are:

1. Joy’s Travel

2. Առլեն Շահվերդյան. հեղինակային բլոգ-կայք

3. It Is What It Is

4. Joshi Daniel Photography

5. sdbast

6. Greek Canadian Literature

7. Erika Kind

8. Travel with Mukul
