Thank you universe; awards!!!!

Well hello again,
I have some things to settle. Alright, firstly, I was given the Versatile Blogger Award by Taylor, which I’m very grateful for, so thanks a bunch, girl! ;)
And in the mean time, I also just got the award from 7ladybugz, so thank you ladybug, as well :).
I think I’m making everyone happy in skipping the boring speeches... Once I’m on a role, I just can’t stop myself (for an illustration, see the ‘about me’ page, LOL).
Alright, this award comes with a few requirements, so let’s get to it then:
- Thank the person who gave you the award  [check, :D]
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Pass the award to up to 10 other versatile bloggers
- Let those other bloggers know you gave them the award
I guess I’ll need to share things about me... Actually, I was glad I already had something scheduled for yesterday, so I had an extra day to think about this, but here goes (yes, I spnd two things considering this and only came up with that :S):
1)      I have terrible difficulty sleeping at night. Mornings make me extremely drowsy, which is no good to me since my falling asleep moment practically coincides with my frigging alarm clock.
2)      My star sign is Virgo.
3)      I have a shark phobia – except to me it isn’t a phobia, but a fully rational fear – because of which I haven’t been more than knee-deep in the sea in many years. I also think twice about going near rivers and lakes, just in case...
4)      Oh, I don’t like spiders very much either. I don’t want them anywhere near me and since I don’t want them dead for my sake either, will take desperate measures to avoid any collision with them whatsoever.
5)      I dislike book covers where the author’s name is printed larger than the title.
6)      I really hate the cold and am seriously considering running off someplace hot for the winters if I can afford it one day.
7)      Though nobody knows about it and I don’t have them by the dozens in my room or anything, I have a thing for snow globes. I think they’re absolutely brilliant.

There. And yes I spent all night thinking about this...
And now, last but not least, my nominees (at least the ones still left that haven’t already gotten it from someone else after putting this off for so long) for the Versatile Blogger Award are... *drum roll, spot lights start roaming about the room and the ‘20th century fox’ theme starts playing*:
Hannah, the queen of social ranting.
Drachma, who is an author here who actually managed to get his book published, so go and give him a big applause for that!
Marie Viaud, a great French-Irish writer and poetess.
Nina, who not only writes compelling stories but also very useful metafiction.
Trickie, who is new and writes very good, though mostly adult, stories.
Congratulations to all of you, you deserved the award fair and square! (I sure hope you haven’t already gotten one...)
Apart from that, I owe a special thank you to K Marie for honouring me with this lovely award earlier:
So thank you, K Marie! ;-)
All is right with the world... :D


  1. Thank you so much. I truly appreciate my online friends. You have all been an inspiration to me, and, believe me you will be remembered. And, I'll tell you that ongoing chapters will still be coming, though with perhaps less frequency than before.

  2. I don't know what to say really..........thank you very much will do, I think. I am so glad. It means so much to me that people read and appreciate my Writing. Many thanks once again, you filled my day with Joy!

  3. Haha, that is by far the best title that has ever been bestowed upon me!

    Thankyou very much, you flatter me. ;)

  4. I have never been recognized for my writings. This is truly a FIRST! Thank you so much for the Blog Award and this is so inspiring.
    Now I really have to work on some versatility and try to live up to the award.
    Thank you again.
    Muchas Gracias.

  5. @Drachma: you're welcome. And I wish you the best with the book. I love inspiring people, by the way.

    And to all you guys, I very much appreciate your company and guidance. It's what keeps me going. Thank you all so much for being there ;)

    @Marie: glad to hear it brightened up your day. And you deserved what you got, every pixel (or whatever is in a picture/however it is spelled) of it.

    @Infidel: haha, bestowed on you repeatedly :) And as for flattery, just look at your follower count ;) It means something...

    @Trickie: don't worry, you're a great writer, there will be more ;)
    And you've already been quite productive, so that'll work out all by itself at this rate ;)

    Keep writing (arting? would be cooler in verb-form) everyone, let's leave a virtual mark, shall we?
    All the best to every single one of you.

  6. Wow! Thanks darlin'! I've been away from the blogging world for a couple of weeks - what a wonderful thing to come back to!
    I wish I could give the award right back to you, but I'm guessing that's against the rules.
    Thanks again sunshine!

  7. I have a little something on my page for you :)
