The Versatile Blogger Award + 100 followers!

Candace Knoebel was kind enough to nominate me for the Versatile Blogger award! Thanks so much! I like winning things. And I like blogging! So this is, quite literally, a win-win.

But before I get into the nitty and gritty of the award, I just wanted to shout out a THANK YOU to all my followers – I hit 100 today! Woo! That’s 100 people more than I knew three months ago when I first started blogging. You guys are awesome, and I’ve loved my time here on WordPress thus far, so thanks again for reading, following, and supporting 🙂

On to the Versatile Blogger award!

Step One: Share 7 things about yourself

Okee dokee. Here goes!

1) My head is super sensitive. By that I mean that if I put my hair up in a ponytail (even a low one), it starts to give me a headache within minutes. The only solutions I’ve found thus far are leaving it down, clipping it high up, or doing a french braid.

2) I keep a book of Sudoku puzzles in the bathroom. I bought it in South Korea, and I have stopped doing the puzzles because I don’t want to have to throw out the book. Sentimental value and whatnot.

3) I have recently developed a crush on Alex Pettyfer. My celebrity crushes usually last about three days or so–but man, it’s going to be a brutal three days.

4) My jedi teddy bear guardian has now been joined in his security detail by Tibbers, the five-foot tall bear I bought at Costco.

5) I really enjoy K-Pop, and I wish that English musicians would cover K-Pop artists’ songs, because A) K-Pop songs are awesome, and B) I want to be able to understand the lyrics!

6) Today I found my door unlocked, and became convinced that someone had broken into my apartment while I was in the bathroom. I proceeded to grab two knives from the knife block and stalk around the apartment yelling, “I’ve got two knives, intruder! I suggest you leave before I find you, because it won’t end well for anyone involved!” I never did find the intruder, so clearly my bluff worked.

7) People talking in movie theatres drive me absolutely insane. I usually just get up and move, but sometimes I will turn to my friend and do the passive-aggressive, “Do you think these people sitting behind us will EVER stop talking? It’s so annoying!” and hope the chatterboxes hear. It’s not hard! Just keep your mouth shut! Ack.

That took a turn for the dark. Let’s lighten things back up.

Step two!

I hereby nominate … hmm …

Now all y’all gotta do is accept the award, thank the person who gave it to you (me!), share 7 things about yourself, then pass the award along to as many people as you like (the official rules suggest 15).

Happy blogging!

Link of the day!

Erm, this one’s a bit racy, so I’ll provide a link instead of just showing you the image. It’s Game of Thrones related, btw.

  1. Congrats on your milestone awards and three digit followers!

    I don’t mean that they have all lost fingers, btw…

    I’ve also received an award nomination today – The Lovely Blog Award. I was rather startled, to say the least. However, being a bit of a newbie (only began blogging a year ago!!!), I have no idea how to reciprocate. Where does one go, or how does one (don’t ai sound posh?) ‘nominate’?
    Hope you can help.

    • Did they post a list of rules for you to follow? I Googled “One Lovely Blog” — here’s what I found:

      Thank the person who honored you with this award and post their links; Nominate up to 15 other blogs for this honor; Tell readers seven things about yourself.

      So basically you include a link back to the person who nominated you, write 7 things about yourself (literally anything you want to share), and then you “pass on” the award to other bloggers. By nominate, they mean put a link in your post to the nominee’s blog, then go to that blog and let the blogger know they’ve been nominated via a comment. You don’t have to nominate 15 people — 3-4 is cool. The idea is just to pass on the good fortune, as well as link your readers to interesting blogs they may not have known about before.

      Woo! Man, I talk a lot. Hopefully that helped 🙂
