Read (and weep) . . . Reader Appreciation/Beautiful Blogger . . .

31 Aug

It truly warms my heart (and makes me giggle) . . . that I’ve been nominated for 2 blog awards:

Reader appreciation from Son and Beautiful Blogger from Serendipity.

I am truly honored. I haven’t been writing here for long (although I’ve had several other blogs now deleted), and I appreciate that anyone is visiting and watching.

I’m supposed to:

  1. Post seven interesting things about myself.
  2. Nominate other bloggers who I feel deserve the award.
  3. Let them know about the nomination.

Some things you may know already, some might be new:

  • I luuuuuuuurv chocolates – Cadbury’s & Lindt are my favourites. I won’t touch chocolate with orange in, though.
  • I can’t eat hot food. Spicy I do with a glass of milk (I luuuuurv Mmmmmilk), but no burning dishes, thank you.
  • The best feeling in the world for me: that first split-nano-second of an orgasm (we refer to it as organisms . . . bit of a private joke . . .)
  • Did I tell you I luuuuuuurv chocolates yet? I did? Ok then, but I don’t mind repeating myself . . .
  • I adore wildlife in the bush, whales @ the sea, friends and holidays. I love giraffes and kudu and elephants and hippos.
  • I am a compulsive reader – I read everything – graffiti, notices, pamphlets/junk mail, notices in bathrooms and behind toilet doors (repeatedly) . . . I luuuuuuurv reading. Mostly fiction and almost exclusively English.
  • I do not buy single ply.
  • I don’t like the taste of red wine – it makes the inside of my mouth go all fluffy and dry like a mummy’s tomb.
  • I like saying luuuuuurv . . . 😉
  • I despise mistreatment of animals and any form of animal abuse.

I follow several blogs and appreciate all of them for several reasons. I’m not going to nominate them as such (as I’m sure that they’ve been nominated already), but I’d like to show appreciation for their existence:

    I feel the same about red wine and single ply 😆 And reading of course, but that goes without saying.

    Much as I would love to buy cool TP, it’s a luxury I would gladly let go if it means I can have a smoke 😉
    Thanks for appreciating me BBN 😉

      Not as far as I can remember saying it in public, but I have read it, yes. And the rice krispies box and the tissue box and the toilet spray tin and . . .

    Aaag, dankie, man! 😉

    Ek koop single ply. My oudste seun het gekerm ek moet, want “its the best way to clean my ass properly, Ma”, en selfs al is hy nie meer in die huis nie, het ek nog nie uit die gewoonte gekom nie. 😆

    I’m caught in crossfire! (Which by the way, I detest…….. but who would ever believe that?). The Alaskan has already lead me astray………

    Well, chocolate is made from beans (sort of) – so I reckon it qualifies as part of the vegetable food group. Purrrfectly healthy! 😉
