The Sunshine Blog Award

sunshine blog-award

Thanks to Tessa for nominating me for this one! I’d think I were more suited to a sunset/nightbringer/supernova award, but hey, whatever comes my way! 😀

Standard rules – 11 questions, 11 nominations, 11 new questions. You can guess which of these three I will be doing! 🙂

1. Introvert or extrovert?

Introvert by a mile.

2. Tea or coffee?

Coffee, since I’ve never tasted tea.

3. Religious or secular?


4. Unicorn or dragon?

Dragon. I can stick an upside-down ice-cream cone on a horse’s forehead to make a unicorn any day.

5. Grilled or fried?


6. UK or USA English?

The Queen’s own, with a nasal twang and a lot of use of y’all

7. Pirates or ninjas?

Ninjas. Pirates always look smelly

8. Chocolate or cigarette?

Cigarette. chocolate cloys after I’ve had a bit

9. Cupcake or muffin?

Cupcake, I guess. By a small margin

10. Conservative or liberal?


11. Who are you?

I’m one who’s smart enough to sidestep this question…. 😉

Ok, I just realized these weren’t the questions I was supposed to answer! And no, I’m not drunk, it’s not seven yet.  These are my questions-

1. Favorite vehicle?

Not a car guy. Maybe a Kawasaki Ninja ZX 14 or something like that

2. Luscious dessert or something healthy?

healthy shmelthy!

3. Ocean or Lake?

Lake. Not a sea person

4. Plane, Train or Automobile?

I’d drive there if I could, otherwise I’d like the shortest travel time so, plane

5. Hot or Cold climate?

Cold any day. I hate sweat

6. Morning or Night person?

Both. I don’t sleep much

7. Exerciser or Couch Potato?

Varies with the weather, but not an exercise nut

8. How long have you been blogging?

I started in 2009 but I’ve been regular only since about Feb this year

9. What languages do you speak fluidly?

English, Hindi, and Punjabi

10. Camping or Hotel?

Hotel. I will not drop a deuce in the wide open

11. Hiking or Biking?

Biking, if that’s the only way to ensure I get to a hotel.


I can see how spoiled I sound. No nominations again. The buck stops here. (mainly because I shoot it and we have some venison..;))



About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
