Reader Appreciation Award

Thank you to Prego and The Loon who nominated me for the above Reader Appreciation Award.   I’ve just recently discovered both her blog and that we have more in common than it might seem, at least at first glance.   I’m honored to be included in her list of nominees and recommend her blog for an honest and personal account of an abusive relationship.

That said, I will follow most of the Award’s rules, which are as follows:

The award rules:
1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Attach the icon to your site.
3. Answer the questions.
4. Nominate some other bloggers whom you feel deserve this award!

Here are my answers to  Prego and The Loon‘s  questions:

Q: Do you watch television?

Yes, I do.  But I rarely watch it unless I’m doing something else.  I use it for background noise or company.  Often I turn on something I’ve seen before (so I don’t have to actually pay attention) or some informational type DIY show, again, where I don’t have to pay attention.

Friends
Q: Who is your favourite author?

I don’t know.  I used to answer John Irving.  It depends on the genre and my mood.

Q: Do you like 80′s movies?

Yes, I do.  Especially Fatal Attraction, Dangerous Liaisons, The Big Chill, Amadeus,  and Rain Man.

Fatal Attraction
Q: What social issue bothers you?

Too hard to answer.  One really can’t put one “ism” over another.

Q: What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

I don’t mess with weird foods.   I’ve had chitterlings (chitlins), but did not enjoy it.

Q: How do you like your eggs?

Scrambled, hard. (Somehow that sounds dirty . . . heh heh heh)

Q:When did you discover blogging?

I can’t believe it will be two years in a few months.

Q: Why do like to blog?

It gives me the ability to instantly share my thoughts.  It allows me to connect with people around the world.  It also gives me a sense of completion when I hit “publish.”

Now it’s my turn to nominate other bloggers for this award.

Recently I was a recipient of another blogger award, The Liebster Award, and explained that I’m not so good with following rules.  I won’t repeat it my reasoning here , instead I’ll just play fast and loose.   Since this is a Reader Appreciation Award, I’ll nominate two bloggers, one who has been a long-time reader and one who more recently discovered my space.   They are completely different — but that’s what’s so cool about blogging.

Accordingly I hereby nominate:

Practical Parsimony

and

Alpine Mummy

I don’t have any questions for these bloggers.  Their own blogs and comments speak for themselves, quite well.  I nominate them with the proviso that they can choose to answer Prego and The Loon‘s questions above, or ask themselves their own questions, or choose not to respond at all — no pressure.

I thank these bloggers  — and anyone else who stumbles upon this place — for reading.

    1. Please take your time. And as you can see, I didn’t follow all the rules and I think that’s okay.

  2. Oooh, thank you for thinking of me! I accept the challenge too – and may need a few days also, seeing as I currently seem to spend most of my days digging snow off our driveway (don’t ask)… I do love your blog by the way! 🙂

    1. Thank you! And by all means, take your time. I did when I received it.

      1. Done! Thanks again 🙂
