Liebster Award

My blog has been nominated by Ashley from Printable Wisdom for Liebster Award, thanks Ashley =D This is the first time I heard of this award (I'm fairly new to the world of blogging). So, I did some digging. I know Liebster is a German word and means like or something, so I searched on Google Translate just to be sure, turned out the direct translation is "dearest". Close enough, LOL.

I'm not really sure how the whole award thing started, it seems impossible to look for the original post. Trust me, I've tried, it's like searching for a specific comma in the sea of blogs. Anyway, there are bloggers nominating other bloggers with 200 or less followers, then the nominated ones will have to follow the rules (see below) and nominate another 11 bloggers.

The girlfriend lost (to the boyfriend and the boyfriend got cut loose as promised by the psyho). What comes to your mind about the game? There's is no wrong or correct answer =) (I assumed the RPS rules are the same around the globe - scissors cut paper, paper wraps rock, rock blunts scissors.)
