Am I legally allowed to win the One Lovely Blog award 3 times?

Apparently, yes, I am. Thank you so much to Candace Knoebel, Andrew Toynbee, and Bishop the Reviewer for nominating me for the:

Yay! I feel so … awarded. And lovely! And unless parallel dimensions exist, I’ve got the “one” aspect pretty much covered as well. Huzzah!

Right. On to the next part of the award — seven things about myself. Although by this point you probably know more about me than I do …

1) The most delicious thing I have ever eaten was barbecued meat at my soccer team’s victory party about ten years ago. I don’t know what the meat was (possibly pork?), or what our coach did to make it so delicious (ritual sacrifice?), but I have been dreaming of that unidentified barbecued meat ever since.

2) I wear glasses, and they are a very high prescription. I enjoy giving my glasses to people who have perfect vision, and watching as they try on my glasses, reel backwards in shock, and say, “This is how you see?!!”

3) I am currently watching a Korean Drama entitled “Boys Before Flowers”. It revolves around four hot, rich guys at a private school who meet and (some of whom) fall in love with a common girl who teaches them about life, love, etc. It’s a soap opera in every sense of the phrase, but I enjoy it because it’s a fun insight into Korean culture. Click here to watch a fanmade trailer for it.

4) My current favourite song is Spiderweb by Haley Reinhart.

5) My brother recently fractured his wrist. While waiting for him to get his cast at the hospital, I composed an epic 3-act play for my mother’s birthday, entitled, “Mama’s Magical Madventure”.

6) I mispronounce the word “disciple”. I can say it correctly when talking about the disciples of Jesus (dis-eye-pull), but any other time, I pronounce it “dis-ih-pull”.

7) I am a recovered WoW addict. Now the Mists of Pandaria expansion is coming out, and I can already feel it trying to pull me back in. I must resist!

Okay, nomination time. Tighten your seatbelts!

Phew. Awards are a lot of work. Seriously though, check those blogs out, they’re awesome.

And now, for your amusement:

Don’t forget to turn off the annotations. Or leave them on. I’m not the boss of you.

Award + Award + Dust Storm

I went home to celebrate Father’s Day weekend with the family, and when I got back I discovered that I had won two awards! Are daughters allowed to get Father’s Day presents? The answer appears to be yes.

If you don’t want to read about the awards, skip straight to the bottom for the most awesome video ever.

One Lovely Blog Award

Pogomonster nominated me for this award, so many thanks for that! Now to copy and paste the rules…

  1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Paste the award image on your blog.
  3. Tell 7 facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 other blogs that you would like to give the award to.
  5. Contact the bloggers that you have chosen and let them know about the award.
#1, check. #2, check. Now for seven facts about myself. Hmm…
  1. My dream steed is a giant poodle that can fly.
  2. I taught English in South Korea for a year.
  3. I am currently watching the TV show “Legend of Korra”.
  4. My household is guarded by a jedi teddy bear named DJ Armen.
  5. My favourite colour is purple.
  6. I had to get gum surgery because my bottom gums were receding. (I’m only 23! Come on, gums, get with the program!)
  7. I love the Portuguese national soccer team solely because Cristiano Ronaldo plays for them. I am fully aware of how shallow that is.
#4 – nominate 15 bloggers? Eek! I’ll do 4, since it’s step #4. That work? Ahem. I have nominated the following bloggers for the One Lovely Blog Award:

I can do the contacting once this blog is posted. Phew! Awards are hard work. On to the next one…

The Lucky 7 Meme Award

Tania L Ramos nominated me for this one — thanks so much! Copy and paste time…

  1. Go to the 7th or 77th page of your Work in progress.
  2. Go to the 7th line of the page.
  3. Copy the next 7 sentences or paragraphs. Remember, they must be as they are typed.
  4. Tag 7 authors.
  5. Let them know they’re it!

This one requires extra work! Opening word document… 7th page… 7th line… action!

Seriously, the things I have to put up with. “WHAT DO YOU WANT, MOTHER?”
My computer gleams smugly from its place beside the window. Aggravated by its recent disc-eating episode, I respond somewhat less-than-politely. “I’M NOT HUNGRY!”
There’s little point in continuing the conversation, since this is the one instance where mother won’t back down. If she’s making dinner, she won’t leave the stove unattended to come figure out what I’m saying. “I’M COMING,” I respond resignedly.
I clench my fists, not in the mood for our hilarious game of miscommunication.

That scene is based off my real-life interactions with my mother, who is undoubtedly shaking her head and tsk-ing as she reads this. Search your feelings, Mother, you know it to be true.

Tagging time! Again, we’ll go with 4. Ready? Steady? Go! I have nominated the following bloggers for the Lucky 7 Meme Award:

And now for something completely different…
