One Lovely Blog Award

21 Sep

I am pretty sure that if all of us bloggers united under one flag (i.e. banner with pretty graphics) we really could take over the world.  Or at least make a functioning society should the zombie apocalypse happen.  I say this because everyone I have met so far has been a wonderfully nice person.

WritingUnderdog nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award!  As such, I nominate him to lead the rebellion against zombie kind.  (What does one have to do with the other… nothing really except that WritingUnderdog totally made my morning by doing something really nice, and he knows how to shoot a gun.  We could make a post-apocalyptic sitcom about his struggles to save humanity while he fights his inner pacifist.)

The Rules:

1. Copy and paste the award logo onto a post.

2. Thank and link back to the person who nominated you.

3. List seven things about yourself.

4. Nominate five other blogs.

Seven Things About Me:

  1. I made bronze, silver, & iron sculptures in a metal casting class in college.  I still miss that class, those people, that teacher, and most of all – the metal.  I now live on the other side of the country and can’t find anything similar that I can do.  I will settle for learning blacksmithing and soldering.
  2. I write, game, & paint to escape.  I don’t want to escape all the time, but often.
  3. My house is too big.  (Weird problem I know.)  I always wanted someplace cozy, in a quiet corner of town.  Preferably made of bricks with a porch.  My house has rooms with furniture but no life, and walls that echo with silence.  I spend most of my time in the bedroom.  It has everything my husband and I need (computers, TV, books, etc) and we hardly venture into the rest of the house.
  4. My life’s goal is to have a Great Dane, and to name him Eliot.
  5. I believe that seeing a hawk or coyote is good luck.
  6. I’m married to a man 15 years older than me.  He has a lot of health problems and is currently disabled.  It was the best choice I ever made.
  7. Nothing smells better than the desert sagebrush after rain.

Five People I Nominate: (I chose 6.  I just couldn’t decide.)

Julia’s Place – This is where I find my weekly writing challenges.  Her blog is lighthearted and sincere.  Always a good read.

Joe’s Blog – Steampunk + Writing.  Is there a better combo?

MMO Gamer Chick – This lady writes about all the games she plays, and reading her posts is always fun.  Followig her Sim’s exploits to make as many babies as possible was the funniest thing ever.

Cristian Mihai – Awesome thoughts and insights on writing.

Let Them Grumble – A very friendly and charming writing blog.

New Providence Daily Photo – This always reminds me of home.  I was born in Jersey and seeing familiar sights in this lovely photography is something I look forward to.

    I would love to make metal sculptures, but I doubt hot metal would agree with my clumsy limbs. I agree that seeing a hawk is good luck, and seeing a beautiful coyote where I live wouldn’t be uncommon, but I wouldn’t want to encounter one by myself sans firing weapon. Call me paranoid. 🙂 Congrats on the award, and thank you for nominating me!
