Black Cat, Blue Sea

I just had to do this because the questions were more than tempting to answer. (I love QA, I love QA!)

Another day, another award! Yayy….!



So, I was nominated by Your Average Peahead (yet again) for the Black Cat, Blue Sea Award. (What does that even mean?) But, it had questions (interesting ones) and I wanted to answer.

Before we begin, let me tell you, even though she has been inactive for a while, Anya’s previous posts are great stress busters. Go, go, check her blog (after reading this post of course xD).

Let’s get started, shall we?

The rules are very much simple:

  • Anybody nominated can nominate up to seven other bloggers.
  • Anybody nominated answers three questions. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions. If any of the questions asked are offending or simply do not want to be answered, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.

Answers to the Questions:

1. Why did you start blogging and how has it been so far?

Why did I start blogging? Because I wanted to!

It all started with me again wasting my holidays (like always). So to save the vacations from getting wasted again, I asked my friend to formulate possible rescue mission. One of the many options was: blogging. I shrugged off the idea thinking, “”Blogging and me? Nahh” But, in next few days I came across WordPress many times. So, I decided to start a blog through which I can reach many and change (even if only few of them) their lives for good. For more detailed descriptions, you can check out the post Blogger Recognition Award.

The journey with Eloraquence and its amazing readers has been A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Even if my day has been not so good, the comments, the support, care, love and loyalty of the readers brighten ups my day. I want to continue this journey of blogging till the end day. I guess, words can never define what it means to be here. I just want to say what I have said before; I truly, with my whole heart and soul, appreciate you all.

2. Tough choice, I know but, which would you rather prefer- Reading or writing. Why? (5 marks.)

You know? By asking this question, you have just reserved a special place in hell where you will be caged in a glass box and there will be extra cheese pizzas outside. You can see it, watch it and also smell it, but you won’t get to eat it. Enjoy!

Uhh… Reading or writing? Umm… Uhh.. Which one? *curses silently* Damn you, Anya!

And the Phoenix died, thinking for her rest of the life, “Reading or writing?”

Writing because after doing Akad Bakad Bambay Bo, I landed up on writing, happy? (I need 5 Silk for this one.)

Those who don’t know, Akad Bakad Bambay Bo is an Indian rhyme used to decide what to choose between many options available. This rhyme has been very helpful at times when I was stuck between vanilla and strawberry, MCQ in exams, Tom&Jerry or Mickey Mouse, white top or blue top, to reply a text or not to reply, etc. You get it? Good.

3. What’s your greatest strength and what’s your gravest weakness?

Greatest strength: I can read a book in one day flat. The only book that took me time to read was Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. But in my defence, at that time I was going to have my 10th grade exams in less than a week. Still, I managed to finish the book in three days.

Also, I forget eating, drinking, sleeping and attending the nature’s call when I am reading. Yes, you can cheer for my dedication.

Gravest Weakness: Oh! I know. I cannot control myself from cheering for Team India in a cricket match. I would be sitting on a couch but I will shout like I am in a stadium. I just cannot stop myself for shouting out for Team India. I become so vulnerable that I wouldn’t be bothered by my surrounding and I let the craziest side of me out.

My Questions:

1. What is the silliest funny memory from your childhood?

2. If you have a day to enjoy everything at Mall for free, at which section you’re most likely to be?

3. You wake up and you find that the world has turned into your favorite movie/novel fantasy. What would it be and why?

Finally, the Nominees:


Stories From My Diary

Advaita Inamdar

Petra Omoregie Caroline

I hope you all do the Award as well. Have a great time doing the post!

Update: There’s something that I want to share with you all. I will be posting with a day’s gap in between for this month. There’s something I am working on for the blog. By the end of the month I let you know. There’s going to be many changes happening. So, here’s another chance for you all to make any suggestions or feedback regarding any aspect of the blog. Either comment below or you can send in the suggestions through Contact page.

I have realized that my blog is in a transition phase. And without getting hasty and hard on myself, I should work on the betterment of the blog and quality of the content. Because better the content, more the readers will enjoy.

Have a great week ahead!
