Belated Blog Awards Ceremony


Today, I’d like to take the time and properly accept all of the awards that were bestowed upon me while I was writing Pendulum.  It was a lovely thing for all of these bloggers to do, and I have yet to take the time to thank them appropriately.

1.Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

Seven Truths

  1. I have nervous habits that I don’t really talk about.  One of those habits is picking at any sores, pimples, blisters, calluses. etc that I may have on my body or face.  I always kind of do it, but when I’m under a lot of stress, it’s the worst.  I’ve been known to cut my toenails down to the point of bleeding.
  2. I smoke.  A lot.  I know I’ve mentioned alcohol as being one of my vices, but so are cigarettes.  I’ve never considered myself to be one of those people with an addictive personality, but I believe I stand corrected.  I wouldn’t normally admit that.
  3. Sometimes, I’ll drink entirely too much coffee, just to have a little hypomanic fit.  Usually, I just end up giving myself that crawling-under-your-skin, bursting feeling that comes with caffeine overdose, instead.
  4. This might actually make everyone who ever lived angry with me.  I am not a Tim Burton fan.  Not in the least.
  5. In addition, I really disliked Star Wars.
  6. My son likes to pee on his floor, instead of going in the toilet.  So, instead of mopping up at each instance, we have what is designated as “the pee towel”.  I mop every few days.  Kind of gross, I know.
  7. I have a gigantic mirror in my basement.  Not for vanity sake, although it is great to check myself out in to see how I look in an outfit.  It’s actually for me to practice my Tang Soo Do forms.

Very Inspiring Blog Award

I’d like to thank Manic Monday for this wonderful award.

Like all the other awards, there’s a few rules: thank the person who nominated you, nominate seven others, and provide seven facts about yourself.

7 nominations:

  1. Slightly Manic Mummy
  2. Crazy in the Coconut
  3. Seasons Change, and so Have I
  4. Anxiety Adventures
  5. Bipolar Blogging
  6. Infinite Sadness or Hope
  7. Bipolar Beach

7 Factoids:

  1. For Monday:  I’ve had bifocals since I was 12, but I don’t wear them because they’re too expensive.  I’d rather just hold something far away from my face.
  2. I wear contacts.  I wear them constantly.  I am that vain, yes.  But also, I love waking up in the morning and not having to fiddle with glasses or contacts.
  3. My hair is bleach blonde, but it is actually a natural dark blonde.
  4. I don’t like having long fingernails.  It’s just another thing to pick at.  I mean, I don’t bite my nails or anything.  I just bite the skin around the nails.  Ewww.
  5. I desperately want to start making “green arts and crafts”, but I don’t know where to start.
  6. I almost never throw clothing in the garbage.  I either recycle it into something else, or I donate.  I like to donate.
  7. I am extremely superstitious.  I mean, to the point of getting epic anxiety when someone violates a superstition.

  3. Congratulations! Wow, you’ve been busy. And can I say I can’t even think who Tim Burton is (I’m sure that is probably a social mishap of mine) so I’m not angry at you… and I don’t do Star Wars either. And finally, thank you for the nomination. That’s lovely and just what I needed this morning. 😀

  4. Thank you soooooo much for nominating my little blog! I’m in a bit of a dark place and this is just what I needed. Thank you so very much. Coming from someone with such amazing blogs and such an emotive writer, I really feel so special! Thank you. I hope you are feeling well, Love Karen x

    • Aww, now you’re making me blush! Come now! You have a wonderful blog, and you are an incredible writer yourself. Don’t sell yourself short!

      I do find that I’m somewhat well, even if it’s in a strange place. How about yourself?

  5. Wow, thank you so much, I am so grateful to be on your list of nominees! The thought makes me very happy, thank you xxx
