An award type of blog post today…
In August, Cha a talented artist from dontchawannadream kindly nominated this blog for the ABC awards (ABC = Awesome Blog Content). So, thank you Cha! I really appreciate it 🙂
ABC Award : The rules for receiving the award are simple.
1) Thank and link back to who nominated you.
2) Say something about yourself with a word or a phrase beginning with each letter of the alphabet.
3) And of course nominate some other bloggers for the award!
A = Anita
B = Books. Also Biology which used to be my favourite among the three science subjects in school.
C = Colin Farrell (teeheehee)
D = DOGS! Dragons!
E = Elegance. I’ve always loved simple yet elegant designs.
F = Fairy tales and Fantasy. Always been partial to movies and stories like those, not so much science fiction though.
G = Giraffes. Cute Giraffe pictures is what I mean.
H = Hope. It’s a good thing, to carry hope within like an everlasting glow.
I = Ice cream. Vanilla if you please.
J = Joy. There’s something so completely exclusive with the word Joy. I would like to think that Joy and I are learning to become friends 😉
K = Kindness. Sometimes it’s a fine line between being kind and being patronising. I feel…
L = Ladybirds. I am actually not afraid of them and think they are cute!
M = Mandarin Oranges. Yummy! Sweet and Succulent.
N = Nuns. I attended Franciscan Missionary schools. Sr. Enda was the awesome, beautiful, Irish singing nun who was the Headmistress of my secondary school and I will always remember what Sr. Jane the 4th form Catechism teacher told us about prayer and how to answer those who were curious about why we prayed to the Saints and Angels ; and the many statues in a Catholic church.
O = Opulence. I don’t feel comfortable in opulence. For some strange reason I feel that opulence is very different from elegance.
P = Pina colada. Both varieties too!
Q = Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis. Yes, this is a very weird thing to list down. No, I am not a statistician. Yes, I did learn statistics. No, I have no idea why this came to mind BUT I will tell you that Statistics will always remain a mystery to me. It’s that one subject which made total sense when I read the theory of it. Two hour after I wouldn’t have a clue. That’s mystical my friend!
R = Rainbow! Rain!
S = Stephen King.
T = Toilets. I can’t understand why people don’t know how to leave a toilet clean after using it.
U = Unicorns! and Underwear – let me explain the second one. Underwear *have* to be comfortable and I don’t care if it’s referred to as “granny panties”. I don’t get the lacy ones or the fancy ones…well, not for daily, “normal” wear. Aren’t people afraid something might just crawl through the holes…or something?
V = Vampires. Vampires portrayed in movies are always so cool and have even cooler abilities. Underworld and Blade..those were awesome vampires!
W = Wishes. If I were given three wishes I don’t really know what I would do with the other two. The first one I’d wish for Joy…for everyone.
X = X-ray. I remember the time I fracture my forearm. I didn’t even need an X-ray to tell me it was fracture…it sure looked like it was.
Y = Yawn. It’s always fun to yawn when among a small group of friends. It’s contagious.
Here’s wishing all of you a Zippty Do Dah Day!! 😀
