A kick in the face hurts. These things are better than said kicking:
one Mangoes (I heart you forever, friend mango).
two Cats (the whole of the internet will bear me out on this, so I don’t think I need to do any further justification).
three Getting not only the Very Inspiring Blogger award from Girl in a Basement (thanks Mouse!)..
..but also the One Lovely Blog award from Olive the People (thanks Olive!)..
The rules for receiving each award are to share seven things about yourself, and to nominate up to 15 other bloggers. Similar to the Versatile Blogger Award, you remember?
seven things about me
one You might have guessed this from the above, but mangoes are my favourite food. Ever. I love lots of other food, it’s true, but somehow I keep coming back to this piece of perfection. Just FYI, if I’m ever in a position where I have to choose my last meal, it will be a perfectly ripe fresh mango. (Why does dried mango taste faintly of fish? ..Just me?)
two I love words, but I am terrible at word games. Really. I lose consistently and embarrassingly at Scrabble – and this from someone who reads and writes as much as she possibly can. I don’t know why I am so alarmingly deficient in this area =(
three I have a winter coat which is padded with down. Like a duvet. It is essentially a duvet with sleeves and a fur hood. #happytimes
four I got really, really good at Mario Kart when it was on the N64, but I just can’t do it on the Wii.
five I haven’t seen most of the movies that I really, really should have. Liiiike..The Godfather. (Gasp!) Taxi Driver. (Shock!) Citizen Kane. (Horror!)
six Average caffeine intake on a weekday: 3x tea, 2x coffee. Caffeine just doesn’t seem to have much effect on me – I drink a coffee and usually want to go to sleep because it has made me feel warm and cosy.
seven The books on my bookshelves are arranged firstly by category, then by author; but I’m always on the lookout for a better method. It’s a subject of much debate.
aaaand the nominations aaaare:
one Olive the People. Because if you don’t like laughing so much you think there’s a real possibility you might die, there’s something wrong with you. Warning: Probably best not to read the Craiglist Commentaries in a public place, or anywhere else where people will judge you for rofling.
three Journey of Mixed Emotions. In which Amanda Wood blogs about stunning cats, photography, and poetry.
four Madomasi is a constant style inspiration, and an Afropolitan with an awesome blog. Could there be a better post title than My second facial, or, the day I got punched in the leg? No, there couldn’t.
six Movita Beaucoup for my constant baking inspiration.
eight Cats And Books, subtitled ‘Because there’s no such thing as too much of either one’, with which I can only agree.
nine Cecile’s Writers for the nuts and bolts of how to write.
ten The Very Single Girl because she blogs about the bits of life I’m too chicken to blog about. C’est tout.
