I’d like to thank the Academy…

It is my great pleasure to announce that
I’ll Come Up With a Title Later, I Swear
is now an *** AWARD-WINNING *** blog!

The Hobbler absolutely made my day today by nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award, and I can honestly say that this blog would never have achieved such extraordinary heights without her influence. All kidding aside, I somehow stumbled upon Hobbling Around while I was still toying with the idea of starting a blog, and I’m glad I did. Witty humor, advice, nudism – her blog just has it all, and although The Motivator gets the credit for inspiring me to start my blog, I probably wouldn’t have kept it up if it hadn’t been for The Hobbler signing up as my first subscriber (before I really had any content, mind you – how’s that for optimism?) and leaving an encouraging comment. So thank you very much Hobbler, keep up the great work – and for anyone who hasn’t already done so, go check out her blog!

Now, apparently to accept this award there are a few things I need to do. Here goes…

The Rules:
  • Thank and link to the person who nominates you.
  • Share seven random facts about you.
  • Pass this award on to five new blogging friends.
  • Contact and congratulate the awarded bloggers.
The Random Facts:
  1. I’m a sleepwalker (when I do actually get to sleep). So is my husband. It looks like Lil Miss Awesome is doomed.
  2. I love horror movies but I refuse to watch them in front of Lil Miss Awesome because I don’t want her to grow up to be as twisted as I am*, so – since she seems to think she doesn’t need sleep – I haven’t watched any horror for a long, long time. Which is probably a good thing considering I have to get up so many times during the night…
  3. My eyes change colour depending on what mood I’m in. Really, they do. For example, if my irises are green that means I’m in a good mood, if they’re dark blue then I’m most likely upset (or about to be hit with a killer migraine), and if they’re black/red then I’ve probably been possessed by some demonic spirit… either that or I’m slightly annoyed… I don’t know what colour they turn when I’m really angry because nobody’s ever survived to tell me.
  4. I haven’t quite figured out what I want to be when I grow up, but I’m working on it!
  5. Prior to pregnancy there was only one movie that ever made me cry (‘Goodbye, Mr Chips’ – the 1939 original, not some crappy remake). Since then, there have been several. Warning: DO NOT mention the movie ‘Up’ in my presence unless you have a box of tissues on standby. And, yes, I do realise that Up is a kids movie and that it’s not supposed to be sad.
  6. I hate poetry (well, at least all the poetry we’ve studied as part of my English major) but when I was a teenager I wrote a couple of poems that ended up being published in an anthology. I keep waiting for a good opportunity to throw the fact that I’m a published poet back in my creative writing teacher’s face – you just wait, next time he complains about me being closed-minded about poetry he’s gonna cop it…
  7. I’m not scared of spiders, snakes or even Freddy Krueger…but don’t get me started on cockroaches, leeches or *gulp* oompa loompas…

* I should point out that my parents did not expose me to horror movies as a child, I’m just naturally twisted.

And The Awards Go To:
  • Blond Zombie I’d say that I have a lot in common with Blond Zombie – but that’d just sound like I was talking myself up.
  • Classy Gallie Ok, so most of her posts make me feel old and uncool but she cracks me up nonetheless.
  • H.E. Ellis A great blog and hopefully one day I’ll get around to reading her book, The Gods of Asphalt.
  • Mommy-fied I love this blog because my baby is roughly the same age as Mommy-fied’s so I can totally relate to her posts.
  • Typical Tracy I’d actually be very surprised if Typical Tracy hasn’t already received the Versatile Blogger Award, but I’m nominating her anyway.

And an honourable mention to Brooke’s Random Ravings – hopefully she gets around to posting some new ravings soon 🙂

  1. Blondzombie says:

    Thank you so very much for the nomination, you are my “The Hobbler”, I’m so honoured-sob, sob sniff. You had me at Procrastinate 🙂 Check my next blog about my 7 random facts.

  2. The Hobbler says:

    Up makes me cry too. (Sorry for mentioning it).

  3. mommy-fied says:

    Love this! Thanks for the mention!!

  4. H.E. ELLIS says:

    Thanks for my nomination! I thanked you on my blog as well so you can check it out there.

  5. Tracy says:

    I can’t wait to get home from work and blog about this! Thanks for the nod. I feel, somehow, less worthless today… 🙂

  6. Oké Acton says:

    I really wanna see Up now!! Really liked this post xoxoxo

  7. TheIdiotSpeaketh says:

    I’m a fellow lifelong sleepwalker. Do you and your husband ever bump into each other in the middle of the night as you are trotting around the house? 🙂 By the way, you are an amazing photographer!

    • Lol, we haven’t bumped into each other for a while (luckily we seem to take turns with the sleepwalking, otherwise it could get dangerous – I’ve woken up in our garage before, trying to figure out how to start my car without the keys…) but we do have sleep-talking arguments 😛 Thanks for the comment on my photography!

  8. so those five bloggers get the award? sweet! 🙂
