This Award Comes Easy

by - January 31, 2010

This week I was wonderfully surprised with two awards.  I am going to separate them into different posts because this one is a long one!

My very good friend Indigo over at IndigoWrath has awarded me with the Best Follower Award!  This one makes me very happy because well, with all of the amazing blogs that I read daily, this comes easy to me.  Especially with him.  His blog never, ever fails to entertain.  He is a truly gifted writer in a world where everyone is an artist, and he most certainly shines through and above with his intelligent and witty pieces.  You really should go and check him out.

So, with this award comes a little work.  I have to pass this along to a few other lovely followers and amazing writers, and then I have to answer some questions.  A whole whack of them to be precise.  I am hoping that with my new found love of really finding out who everyone is in this crazy blogosphere that everyone else will find this stuff about me just as interesting.  If not, that's okay too.  I sometimes think I can be quite boring myself, so I really don't mind!

And here are the questions.  The whole whack of them:

1.  What is your current obsession?

The Sims 3.  That's embarrassing for me to admit.

2.  What are you wearing today?

Jeans, a long sleeved shirt and zip up hoodie.

3.  What's for dinner?

Leftover pizza.

4.  What's the last thing you bought?


5.  What are you listening to right now?

Dave talking business on the phone.

6.  What do you think about the person who tagged you?

Indigo?  He is amazing!

7.  If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?

Manchester, England.

Water.  And an oxygen mask.  It gets VERY hot here in the summer.

9.  If you could go anywhere in the word for the next hour, where would you go?

I would go have a cocktail with my parents in Panama.

10.  Which language do you want to learn?

Macedonian, since it's my background.  I knew it once, but it has since been lost.

11.  What's your favourite quote?

"Hope for the best but prepare for the worst".  From a fortune cookie a long time ago.  Am I a pessimist or what?

12.  Who do you want to meet right now?

Me when I am 50.  I have a few questions.

13.  What is your favourite colour?

Green and brown! I know that's two, but I love them both the same.

14.  Give us three styling tips that work for you.

Brush your teeth, hair, and act like you look good.

15.  What is your dream job?

To be a bestselling novelist.

16.  What's your favourite magazine?

Hmmm.   I don;t read magazine's much.  Anything video game related?

17.  If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?

A DVD shelf.  They are currently tucked away in my closet (what with the ghetto family room and all) and this is making me sad.

18.  What do you consider a fashion faux pas?

Well, this is just a personal preference but I don't love tight clothing.  I am talking painted on tight.  I don't need to see every nook and cranny, know what I mean?

19.  Who according to you is the most over-rated style icon?

*Ahem* A who in the what now?

All of the ones that I follow!

Some kind of casserole.  They have become my specialty as of late.  And it's winter!  So it would be comfort food for sure.

BOOERNS.  I don't even know if I spelled it correctly.  THAT'S how much I hate it.  I refuse to look it up.

A no-brainer.  Quit my effing job.

And there you have it!  And now I have to tag a few people in return for this award.  Please feel free to do with it as you wish my friends.  You can accept it and make your blog that much prettier and that's that, or you can follow the above format.  Whatever you wish!  

I would love to pass this award on to:

Kristy over at This Train of Thought Has Been Derailed- How much do I heart Kristy? She was one of my first followers and one who is very encouraging and lovely.  Her blog is ALWAYS an interesting read, and I am never bored when I am visiting.  Go and check her out folks, you won't be disappointed!
