Yesterday - a happy surprise. A very, VERY happy surprise. Someone called Lisa Agosti...someone I don't know (it makes a difference, you see!)...posted that she'd nominated me for a Sunshine Award for my blog - see her full post here, in the comments section (Modesty does not permit...)
So - someone I don't know nominated my blog for an award I didn't even know existed! How cool is that?
So - now I have to carry out a few tasks:
Answer questions (for some reason) - first translating them into English from American. That is to say, adding a U everytime it's been omitted - vis 'favorite color'
Favourite Colour? My hair
Favourite animal? I can't answer this question because I love all animals (except perhaps stick insects)
Favourite number? Any that I don't have to use in a calculation.
Favourite nonalcoholic drink? Fentimans Ginger Beer. Other ginger beers are available (but aren't as good as Fentimans)
Favourite alcoholic drink? After our recent holiday, it has to be a Mojito.
Facebook or Twitter? Facebook - I have friends across the world on there - many of whom I've never met but they're precious to me. Please add Google+ though.
My passions? People, horses, dogs, reading, writing, blogging, Green&Blacks Organic Milk Chocolate with Sea Salt.
Giving or receiving gifts? Giving, every time.
Well, I don't think you know any more about me now, do you?
Now - for my own Sunshine Award nominees: (aside, of course, from Lisa)
Scary Duck: Not Scary. Not a Duck - yes, you've got loads of awards already but only because you deserve them.
Hyperbole and a half - as above, but remains a constant source of amusement and thought-provoking blackness.
Anna Dewis - Tales From My Handbag - love reading your blogs (but do wish you'd use paragraphs!)
Meg Rosoff - I hope you get your blogging muse back soon because I miss you!
The bitter script reader - I like his pragmatic, resigned, ironic common sense.
