If you’d like to know more about the creative mind behind Oddball Content, take a look at the previous awards the blog has been nominated for:

Regular readers will know what these award posts are all about by now – I’ll be answering eleven questions and setting eleven of my own for the eleven lucky bloggers I nominate. It’s a great way to annoy people opportunity to show fellow bloggers how much you appreciate their craft.

My answers

What is the last book you read?

I read a bit of Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme in French, because I’m just that sophisticated. Oh là là!

What is the last song you listened to?

All I Want is You from the Juno soundtrack

Why did you decide to start a blog?

I started Oddball Content as a way to be creative, write lighthearted things and hopefully entertain people.

As a youth I would read comedy articles on Something Awful and wish I could write like that. So now, over a decade later, I’m finally doing it.

You’ve been kidnapped, the kidnapper is the main character from the last movie you watched. Who is it?

Tommy Wiseau from The Disaster Artist. That could well happen.

When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?

Leading new projects at work probably. Got to use these skillz to pay the billz.

What is your favourite thing to do when you’re alone?

Eat, watch YouTube videos and work on my blog. I have a day off work next week and I’ve already planned the cookie dough dessert I’m going to order as part of a decadent lunch:

  • milk chocolate cookie dough
  • one scoop of cookie dough gelato
  • one scoop of salted caramel gelato
  • one scoop of Maltesers gelato
  • milk chocolate shavings
  • whipped cream
  • Maltesers
  • milk chocolate sauce
  • caramel sauce
  • sliced banana (to make it healthy)

As you can probably tell I am extremely excited for this very important and culturally significant project. Let me know if you want me to post a picture of what’s sure to be a magnificent feast!

What is your favourite thing to cook?

At the moment I like to toast a bagel and top it with chilli pesto, rocket, tomatoes and halloumi. Or taramasalta. Yum yum!

What’s something that you’ve let hold you back in the past?

Being simultaneously scared of being alone in life and scared of making new connections with people. It’s a really bad combination, but I’m in a much better place now.

What is something you have overcome?

See answer to the above question.

Who are the most important people in your life?

My fiancé, housemates and parents.

What did you eat for breakfast?

My fiancé makes me porridge with cinnamon and plums every morning at the weekend. I’m very lucky.

  1. Tommy Wiseau gives me the creeps too!I am glad to hear that you have overcome the whole connecting with people fear, me personally I feel that is more like a tendency to avoid the risk of trying to connect and getting shut down by the person.

  2. Congratulations on the nominations, I love you answers, the person who would kidnap be from the last film I watched would be Thomas from The Maze Runner and let me tell you, I would be happy for him to kidnap me ahaha

  3. Congrats on the nomination! I love the questions you asked and my favorite part was “gotta use the skills to the bills” I thought that was really funny 😆
