Real Neat Blog Award (+ tags)

In September, A Geeky Gal was nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award by ! Frostilyte runs a really cool game blog by the same name. You should absolutely spend some time reading Frostilyte’s editorials like this one on Borderlands 3. Thanks again Frostilyte for the nomination. It’s very much appreciated! And I apologize for taking so long to do this. It’s been a busy time here on the blog. The questions below are pretty cool so I can’t wait to answer them!


The Rules:

  • Display the Award Logo.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Answer the questions of the one who nominated you.
  • Nominate 7-10 bloggers.
  • Ask them seven questions.


What is a game coming out in 2020 that you’re excited for? Animal Crossing: new Horizons! I will be getting my Switch just in time to play this game. I bought a 3DS just for Animal Crossing: New Leaf so the patter continues! I’ll just have to play Pocket Camp until March…

Ninjas, or Pirates? Why? Pirates, because they’re probably closer to my personal aesthetic goals. Confused? Yeah, me too.

You won a life time supply of the last thing you spent money on. What is it, are you excited, and how do you intend to use your comically overstocked collection of this commodity? I wish my answer was something more silly, but the last thing I bought was chicken. Considering how quickly it’d go bad, I’d donate it to soup kitchens and food banks, and I’d throw a house party with chicken centered dishes.

God almighty above. They were right! AI took over the world and started building mecha-style enforcers out of the factories. Which billion dollar software company is responsible for ending humanity and do you submit to our AI overlords, or rebel against them? Wouldn’t it be great if Bethesda turned out to be behind it all? Don’t worry guys; there’s bound to be bugs in the programming. I’d rebel but if Bethesda is behind it, I could probably hide until the AI self destructs from all the bugs.

What was the reason you started your blog? Feel free to be as detailed as you see fit with this one. It started as a creative outlet, and it’s very much that for me but better branded and more cohesive. I wrote more about what my blog is about in my Meet the Geek post.

You wake up one day and find that you are now your least favourite character from your favourite television show (use a video game if you don’t watch TV). Who are you and how do you feel about it? Oof, that’s a hard one. Looking back at the last season of Orange is the New Black, I gotta say Piper was really, really hard to like. If I woke up as her, I’d do a complete 180 depending on where in the season she is at that point in time. There’s so many times I wanted to smack her upside the head!

What’s a skill you wish you had, but can’t find the time in the day to learn or master? I wish I knew another language, specifically Japanese or Korean. I stuck with Duolingo for a bit but I just haven’t had the time or energy to try again.

My Questions:

  1. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
  2. Who or what is your spirit animal?
  3. What is one thing on your bucket list?
  4. What is your strategy for the zombie apocalypse?
  5. What movie/book character are you most like?
  6. If you could do anything you want for a living, what would it be?
  7. If we were all forced to wear a warning label, what would yours say?

Blair @ Feed the Crime

yna the mood reader

Pinkie @ Pinkie’s Pokemon

Luc @ Believe in Geek

  1. No worries on taking your time with the post. I don’t always get around to tag posts in a timely manner either, so it’d be hypocritical of me to get upset at others.

    Good answers all around. Figured as much on Animal Crossing. Also figured I’d get more hilarious answers for the “lifetime supply” one, but surprisingly most of them have been fairly mundane. Ah well…such is life haha.

    And definitely there with you if Bethesda made the killer AI. Just a waiting game at that point until they wipe themselves out.

    1. I’ve been trying to leave some spots open in my blogging schedule for tags and awards, but I’ve been in such a writing groove that it’s been hard!

      I really enjoyed your questions! I wish I had had more interesting answers lol! Everyone seems to like my Bethesda answer though, so I got that going for me. 🙂

  2. Congrats on the award. Funny enough, I took Japanese classes when I was in high school. I remember some of it still, but writing is hard. Right now, I’ve been teaching myself Lingala after finding out one of my major ethnic group DNA samples was Congolese.

  3. I am looking forward to Animal Crossing next year too. To date I have not played a game from the series, but I imagine it will be enjoyable as I like farming titles like Harvest Moon and Rune Factory.
