The Versatile Blogger Award

Canadian vampire hunter Dracul Van Helsing had been performing every single act from the Kama Sutra with South African cultural attaché Lepardia Marango in a bedroom in a medieval inn in a small village in Wales in the middle of a fierce snow storm.

He had stopped when Lepardia paused to answer a text message from South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

As Dracul checked his own social media after performing every single position from the Kama Sutra, he noticed he had been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Here was Dracul’s blog post in response to the nomination:

The rules to the award are simple:

Just nominate some other blogger and ask them to answer a question asked by you and then tell 7 interesting things about yourself.

I would like to thank Shreya Sukrity

https://readnewweb.wordpress.com/

for nominating my name for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Shreya asked me a question- Every cloud has a silver lining?

My answer: But there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow 🌈.

My nominees for Versatile Blogger Award: Anyone who wants to answer the question I pose (which I will pose at the end of this blog post).

7 things about myself:

1): I use as the HTML backdrop frame for my blog an HTML backdrop frame that is 10 years out of date on WordPress.

The reason I do is because I happen to like the background- a nice Victorian Gothic style setting- perfect for a vampire novel.

Of course the only problem with it is that I’m unable to like other people’s comments on my own blog posts.

I notice many people like my comments on my own blog post but there is no like button for me to click that I like comments on my own blog posts.

So if you’ve ever wondered why I’ve never clicked Like on your comments on my blog posts, dear readers, it’s because I’m unable to do so.

2): For some reason ever since he was elected President, I have a dream at least once a week where Donald Trump phones me up for advice.

He obviously never listens to it which explains why all of his policies are such disasters.

3): My three favourite literary characters are Sherlock Holmes, Philip Marlowe and Father Jonathan Darrow the mystic Anglican priest who was the central character in Susan Howatch’s series of six novels about the Church of England in the 20th Century.

4): My favourite animated cartoon character is Jessica Rabbit.

5): My 5 favourite writers are William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and C.S. Lewis.

6): My favourite vampire novelist is Anne Rice.

7): My favourite person from History is Jesus Christ.

and here are 3 extra points about myself

8): My favourite contemporary TV character is Raymond Red Reddington (who’s a lot like my own vampire novel character Renfield R. Renfield- and they both have the same initials as well- R.R.R.)

9): My favourite male singer is Josh Groban and my favourite female singer is Aya Matsuura (a Japanese singer)

10): My favourite famous last words spoken on a deathbed by a famous personage in history would be the last words spoken by Oscar Wilde on his deathbed,

“Either that wallpaper goes or I do.”

My question for all those versatile bloggers out there who want to answer this question – Of all the gin joints in all the world, who would you least like to see walk into Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca if you happened to be there?
