Rules: Link to the blog that gave you the award. Nominate 13 blogs and post seven interesting facts about yourself.Thanks to Michael Abayomi for the "The Kreativ Blogger Award!"
Rules: Link to the blog that gave you the award. List 10 randoms facts about yourself, and then nominate 6 other blogs.
For most of these awards, you're supposed to give seven (or ten) interesting facts about yourself. Since no one wants to sit and read a list of 14 factoids about us, I'll just share some common answers to questions about twins.
Seven Frequently Asked Twin Questions Answered
- We have never dated the same girl or tried to trick a girl. We have totally different tastes in women. Plus, we don't like being slapped.
- No, we have not switched places at school or work. Why would I want to do my brother's work?
- We do have a memory of switching places when I almost drowned in a pool. I remember running to Mom, while he remembers being underwater. *** X-Files Music***
- We're identical twins, but "mirror" twins. I'm right-handed and he's left-handed. 25% of identical twins are mirror twins.
- We never dress alike. Not even accidentally. Mainly because we have different tastes in clothing. We did share clothes a lot when we were young, but our Mom made sure we had seperate sets of clothes.
- We are not named the same thing, but our names mean the same thing in different languages. Maurice is based on the French word for "Black" while Nigel is based on the Spanish word for "Black." Our Mom is very creative.
- We're identical twins, but not exactly the same. Nigel is a published writer and author with a degree in literature. I was once a professional graphic designer who struggles with spelling and gramar grammar.
I realize these awards can take an enormous amount of time to work on, so I'd suggest sharing them one at a time.

Is the ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Delay Really About Channing Tatum? | /FilmAll Things X: Xcite! Updates on the Marvel Heroes MMO game!
Deadline says that test screenings for G.I. Joe: Retaliation didn’t go well, and that “the only bright spot for audiences as a result of the G.I. Joe 2 testing was the aborted relationship between Tatum and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.” The relationship is aborted (spoiler that everyone should have known already) because the sequel kills him off in the first act. Why do you think he’s not on the poster, or in the trailer after the opening moments?

This detailed model enterprise 1701-A came equipped with sound effects and 12 light emitting diodes which required a steady hand to be sure.

The costume tunic is removable in two pieces and the hair and ears are removable as well. I wasn't able to remove the face or the arms. I didn't try to put a lot of pressure on them so it's possible they are actually removable.

Superhero stories have long been the handy work of men. They have (for the most part) been manly stories about macho men written by (of course) men. I have to wonder if I am stepping on anyone's toes by taking on this genre the way I am.PT Dilloway: Wild Card Wednesday: Scarlet Knight Vs...

This is authentic Doctor Who start to finish, and stands up perfectly well as an entry into the canon in its own right. No-one puts on a red nose, or picks up a Pudsey, or is greeted by Terry Wogan walking on set at the end.

Teal'c was the classic strong but silent type. He would get his point across with just one or two words. Even though Twitter allows you to use 140 characters per tweet, shoot for less than that. Shorter tweets rise above the social media static and tend to get more re-tweets.
