Liebster Award!

Good Morning!
I got tagged by two blogger buddies for the above thingy, which I had never heard of, so BRB Googling. Oh hey, there we go. Now I feel more educated. I’m pleased to be included by two of my blogging friends in this, and I’m going to play along to some extent. I’m all for community events, mind you. I participated in the Newbie Blogger Initiative and Blaugust, and enjoyed both immensely. This feels gimmicky to me. I’m all for networking, I enjoy finding new blogs, but I’m more apt to find them via social media (get on those re-tweets!) or by browsing a blogger friend’s blogroll. I have a small niche of friends, one of whom already has proclaimed she will not be tagging anyone, and of the others, I’ve seen most of them respond to this in one way or another, either by tagging me, or posting their reply to someone else’s nomination already.
Confused? Don’t be! This is what chain emails feel like! I tag you, you tag him, eventually we all get cross-tagged, and then everyone is answering the same question over and over until someone throws their computer out the window after deleting you all from their email contacts!
That being said. I will answer the questions asked of me, because I’m polite, if grumpy ^.^
1. What are the three major elements of your ideal video game?
Story, combat can’t feel too clunky or awkward, a sense of humor
2. Big city, suburb, or countryside?
Suburb within driving distance of the big city.
3. What’s the origin of your blogging name?
Alternative Chat‘s fault. ^.^
4. Aeris lives and you’re hired to retell Final Fantasy 7. What role does she play?
Who, what?
5. What’s your favorite biome?
Torn on this one: a frozen, mountainous zone, or a lush sprawling plain, filled with wildlife and flowers. One extreme or the other, with me!
6. Write a haiku love poem to this morning’s breakfast.
The coffee is warm
Slowly awakening from my slumber
7. What’s your preferred device for reading blogs?
No specific device, I just click and read, whether it be on my PC or my phone
8. If you were to start up a video game company, what would you name it?
Byx Bytes
9. Which of the Seven Dwarves would you be and why?
Grumpy! She exclaims, to the surprise of no-one. On a good day, probably Doc, as I like to figure out problems and coordinate things.
10. What form of exercise do you find to be the most effective?
I haven’t exercised in forever, but I really enjoy strength/control exercises, such as Pilates and Barre. Walking is always really good, too.

*squints* This is a trick question.  It’s exactly as long as it is, no more, no less =D

Drink up, me hearties, yo ho.
We’re devils and black sheep, there’s the rum,
Drink up, me hearties, yo ho.”
8. If someone has multiple personalities and threatens to commit suicide, is this considered a hostage situation?
I.. what?
