Nom, Nom, Nomination

In Writing on May 22, 2012 at 8:38 am

I’m posting a big thank you to Laura Lee Anderson today for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. You can trust her judgment: her first book, Bleeder, has a pretty awesome pitch, and it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about creativity. I highly recommend you check it out!

She unofficially renamed this the “Creative Blooger” award, and I thought maybe I should call it “Le Blogueur Créative” in deference to my roots, but I think this poor award has been through enough already so I’ll just get on with it.

Anyway, there are some rules to follow: 1) Thank the person who nominated you 2) Say seven things about yourself (we’ll see in a bit if there actually are seven things about me) 3) Nominate seven other people.

The seven things:

  • I drink Earl Grey tea exclusively (that is, exclusive of all other teas, not exclusive of all other liquids).
  • I don’t have a dog, but when I get one I’m going to name him Hooper (after Matt Hooper, of course, from Jaws).
  • I was originally a math major and my grades in math have always been better than my grades in English. This bodes well for the quality of my blog, I know.
  • When I was five I ate a pretzel off the ground. Note: I did not drop it, pick it up, and eat it — I was walking, found it, and ate it.
  • Humming the Harry Potter theme makes me bowl better.
  • I don’t like U2. (How does ‘The Edge’ call himself ‘The Edge’ with a straight face?)
  • In high school I was in a band called Funk Bus. Our t-shirts were better than our music.

And now the all-important nominations:

1) The Equiatic Bind

2) rainang at writersclubkl

3) alphabetically inclined

4) elmowrites

5) The Writing Aficionado

6) Pen Names and Other Escapes

7) castelsarrasin

Hearty congratulations all around! In addition to this great honor, you have earned the right to post this picture on your site, a badge of particularly floral merit. Wear it proudly!

  1. Congratulations on the nomination! You so deserve it!!

  2. Congratulations Brian, and thanks for the nomination!!

  3. This is an awesome post! And thanks for the nod- I’m all blushy now. I LOVE the facts about yourself. Five-year-old you is a wild man. 🙂 And have you ever tried Stash Earl Grey? It’s the best I’ve had. Congrats and thanks again!

    • I have tried Stash Earl Grey and I’m with you on it being great — I’m a fan of Mighty Leaf too though! If there are raw sugar cubes, so much the better haha. Thanks again for the nomination!
