Merlin's beard! I was nominated for an award!

7 Jan

Here are the rules that came with the award:

1) Thank the person who nominated me for this award.
2) Copy the award & place it on my blog.
3) Link to the person who nominated me for this award.
4) Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
5) Nominate 7 bloggers.
6) Post links to the 7 blogs I nominate.

I was nomiated by Callie of I did it but I’m blaming you blog fame. She’s the best. The blog best.

7 ‘interesting’ things about me:

  1. I’ve wanted to be loads of different things over the years: director, actor, FBI agent, chef, playwright, fashion designer, journalist; I’ve settled on writer.
  2. I’ve seen a total of 5 celebrities (if you can call them that) in real life: DJ Qualls (The New Guy!), French actor Dominique Pinon (Delicatessen, Amelie), Eva Mendes, Travis Barker and Paul Maroon (guitarist for the Walkmen). The only one I actually spoke to was Paul; they opened for Modest Mouse once and after their set I spotted him standing in the back of the theatre by himself holding a red plastic cup. He was very sweet and smiley and just the cutest ever.
  3. I’m a huge Englishophile (if that’s a word). I love everything to do with the country, including PG Tips, BBC and bangers n’ mash. Someday I will live there.
  4. I think Fox Mulder is sexy.
  5. I went to the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Barnes and Noble dressed as Hermione. I was accompanied by Cho Chang and Voldemort.
  6. As a kid I had a dalmation named Kody. There was also a boy named Cody who lived on our street, so we had to refer to him as ‘Cody the Boy’ to avoid confusion.
  7. I like to watch the Disney show Sonny with a Chance. What?  It’s funny! Shut up, you jerk.

7 great blogs:

  1. Self Professed Nerd. 
  2. Esme and the Lane Way.
  3. Kateblogsworth.
  4. The Literary Adventures of Lindsay Monroe. 
  5. Faux Naif. 
  6. Q’s Daydream.
  7. all this happiness.

    Thanks, darling!! You rock.

    Fox Mulder IS sexy. Brains+a rockin’ bod= sexiness. My wall when I was a teen was covered with Fox Mulder pics.

    Thankies a bunch!

    And as far as #3, I think that the word you are looking for is ‘anglophile’. I know it, because I am one as well. Go brits!

    Dalmatians are cool beans.
