Creator of Psychic Lobsters and Harvey Tallbanger Bunny Rabbits Receives Mystery Blogger Award

April 29, 2019 at 10:25 pm (Life) ()

I’m honoured to have been nominated by Zealous Homo Sapiens for the prestigious Mystery Blogger Award.

Her blog can be found at

Her blog is a mixture of amazing photos and quotes and sometimes very short (often less than 100 words) short stories.

Thank you so much for this nomination, Priya.


“Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.”

Thank you, Priya, for thinking I deserve this award.


1. Put the Award Logo/Image On Your Blog.

Okay that right there is a problem since my ability to figure out html on my blog amounts to nil.

The listings at the top of my WP Blog Edit Page might very well be Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics as far as I’m concerned.

In fact, they very well could be ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and I haven’t really noticed that yet.

It was only recently a few years back that I managed to figure out how to properly use the Add Media button to put photos on my blog.

No doubt my readers George F. and Hyperion are very grateful for that since they seem to be very ardent admirers of the photos I use. 😂

So just like my character Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster is taught to visualize before he arrives (telepathically speaking) at the remote viewing spying location he’s supposed to be at, I ask my readers to visualize a Mystery Blogger Award Logo appearing at the top of my page.

No doubt what a Mystery Blogger Award Logo looks like will appear to be a great mystery to most of my readers when they find out that their visualization techniques are not on a par with Michelangelo’s (which explains why Michelangelo works at Set Enterprises a scientific research and development firm in London, England owned by a billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire and they don’t).

However perhaps it is appropriate that a Mystery Blogger Award Logo should be a mystery. 😄

2. List the Rules.

My character British MP Renfield R. Renfield informs me that’s what I’m currently doing.

3. Thank the creator of the award and provide a link as well.

My character the concert pianist and musician Amadeus Emanon notes that I did that in the first paragraph of this blog post.

4. Tell your readers 3 things about yourself (I will do that a little later).

5. Nominate 10 to 20 people (I will do that later).

6. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog (I likewise will do that later).

7. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (does it have to be just one?) 😉


1. I have two godchildren whom I’ve never met in person.
One is a goddaughter named Nyssa who lives in Delhi, India and the other is a godson named Joshua who lives in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

2. If I could have been any person in history, I think I’d like to have been C.S. Lewis.

3. If I could have been any person in literature, I think I’d like to have been Sherlock Holmes.


1. How do you give your ultimatum in an argument?

Well seeing as how I find arguments to be a waste of time, I don’t argue much.

But if I were to give an ultimatum in an argument, I’d do it with style like Clint Eastwood did in one of his films and pull out a .44 magnum and say, “All right, now you have to ask yourself, do you feel lucky today?”.

2.If you had to open up a charity, what would you name it and what would be its aim?

The Robin Williams Foundation To Combat Depression.

Named after Robin Williams the great comedic and acting genius who fought depression all his life.

Its aim would be to train and employ compassionate people who would help those who combat depression, anxiety and PTSD in their lives.

So that they wouldn’t feel alone and isolated like Robin Williams felt at the end of his life and end up taking their own lives like he did.

3. How is your best friend different from you?

As far as I know, he doesn’t talk to invisible tall bunny rabbits in public like I do.

4. Do you have a pet? If yes, then what? If no, then would you want to have one? (Tell me their names too).

No, I don’t have a pet. Although I would like to have a dog and a cat someday.

5. Sweet, savoury or spicy dishes?


That’s why I love Mexican, Korean, Thai and South Indian cuisine.



If you were stranded on a desert island and the film projector you miraculously managed to rescue from your sinking ship only had 5 movies available on its reels, what 5 movies would you wish they be?


What would be an ideal dinner for you?


If you could have coffee with any person in history, who would it be and why?


What person in literature do you wish had actually lived in reality?


What type of water do you prefer to swim in? Fresh water or salt water?

I nominate:

    Ha ha ha haaaa BRAP! Whoops 😬. Laughed too hard again. Yes, I do appreciate your fine taste in Vampiresses. I think it would be number one on my bucket list to meet them all at a cosplay convention where no one would think anything was strange about all the vampiresses and some ancient old dude in a Steampunk Vampire outfit. Dang, that would be the bear’s berries, wouldn’t it?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      If the ghost of Winston Churchill was standing by, he’d remark, “This is Daniel’s finest hour.” 😃

      • Hyperion said,

        Indeed, the ghost of Winston Churchill would be correct in his assessment of the situation. We would be an instant success in our on stage presentation of the erotic art of rope binding and suspension. College boys everywhere will buy our Steampunk vampire gear and special fruit flavored and vodka cotton candy rope and bind young dark gothic vampiresses to the obstacle course racks on the football practice field. It could become an annual spring break competition. Soneone shpuld write about it 😁

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        And this spring break competition would be secretly attended by various seedy U.S. politicians who would publicly denounce the event in order to win the approval and votes of the #MeTooMovement.

        Although Joe Biden would have a hard time explaining away the accidental rope burn on his wrist incurred as a result that he was never very good at tying knots. 😂

      • Hyperion said,

        Waa haaa haaa! And ole Boobie Biden, not being familiar with the sensual powers of the Vampiresses would be photographed visiting a shady California hair waxing clinic to have the hair removed from his palms every week.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, squeezing some poor woman’s buttocks with hairy palms wouldn’t look so good on the campaign trail.

      • Hyperion said,

        The rumors of Bigfoot Biden’s wooly boobie muffs would surely start a new trend in toxic masculinity fashion.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        All sorts of losers will be heading into werewolf infested areas wearing t-shirts that say BITE ME. 😄

  3. annieasksyou said,

    Well-deserved, Christopher. Yours is one of the most creative blogs I’ve come across. Your response here is both hilarious and poignant.

    To think if it weren’t for your conversations with Harvey, I wouldn’t have gotten past my dislike of all things Dracula and missed so much fun!

    And thank you so much for nominating me! Does that mean I need a quick course in html?
    So soon after learning about ROTFLOL?


    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks very much, Annie. ☺

      No, I don’t think a course in HTML is required. 😄

    Thank you so much for considering my nomination!
    I really loved your answers a lot. The Robin Williams Foundation To Combat Depression – A great name! I have visited Delhi, India many times, like almost every year because my relatives stay there. Mexican, Korean, Thai and South Indian cuisines are my favorite too! Being from India, I do not get to eat italian food much so that is what I crave for. Hehe.
