Nothing brightens a cold and bleary Sunday morning like being nominated for an award!
The requirements of the award are:
a) Use the award logo in a post and/or on your blog
c) Offer 10 pieces of random information about you
i) My best ever bowling stats was 5 overs, 3 maidens, 6 wickets taken, 4 runs conceded.
ii) My best ever batting score was 18, in my first ever game =P
iii) Have been a video game enthusiast since I was 7.
iv) Cannot stand tomatoes. I grew to like broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts, but not tomatoes.
v) I think there was a year somewhere in my primary and high school years where I wasn’t bullied.
vi) My preferred podcasts are Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren and Tiesto.
vii) The first home console I bought for myself was the Nintendo 64. Saved up for a year, and bought an extra controller and Mario Kart 64 with it.
viii) The first CD I ever owned was ‘Music Box’ by Mariah Carey, received for my 11th birthday.
ix) A toy replica WWE World Heavyweight Championship is kept handy for the family champion of Wii Sports.
x) To help motivate myself, I sometimes shoulder it while I type.
d) Nominate ten other bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.”
I did a similar exercise just over a week ago, when I thanked my followers upon reaching my ’25 Followers’ milestone. Apologies if I only do five, and if it is a cheat to use my descriptions from that post.
i) Shadowoperator of Creative Shadows, whose support since the early days has kept my motivation dropping below zero =)
ii) Anneque Malchien of Skull and Dog and The Writer’s Bar, who is not only an awesome author, but an awesome artist =)
iii) Paul Davis of Storyteller Davis, who amazes, motivates and inspires with his mind-boggling workrate =)
iv) Naomi Whiteacre of Wrong With Life, who manages to maintain an awesome website while being a working single parent!
v) J. Collyer of The Path, whose work has only gotten better, the more I have read =)
e) Let your nominees about their much deserved award.
I shall do so now.
