The Blog on Fire Award

Quick post today. I’m being rushed by a crazy mother with a list-of-hell-babies-I-need-to-pack, and she’s relentless. I’ll also be consuming alcohol and indulging in belly-dancing at Bulgarian night clubs with a couple of friends, after which I’ll get on a plane to Jolly Ol’ England.

That’s right. Vacation’s over.

But before I go, I wanted to acknowledge a wonderful blog award I got a few day ago by the lovely Kathleen Doyle, who blogs about everything, including movies, writing, syfy, and so on. She’s also a very kind person and I’m honored she thought of me when she got this award from Jennie Bennett, who we all know and love. 

Now I’m supposed to bore you with 7 (embarrassing) things about me.

1. I like to sing along to every song that’s on, but I sing off-key every time. I wanted to be a singer when I was a kid… alas, I grew up and realized that not every sand castle is meant to last.

2. You must never mention Killing Me Softly to me (WHAT DID I JUST SAY!), or else... I'll take you off my white list. I don't really have a black list, but I make one just for you.

3. I talk in my sleep. I sleepwalked once. I might also sleep-sing. It happens.

4. When I was little, I was obsessed with soap operas. I’ve watched every one that was aired on TV between 1995 and 2000. I even had a diary where I wrote the key scenes down.

5. One of my MAJOR guilty pleasures is The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Okay, I don’t really like vamps, but Rose is not a vampire but a dhampir, which is very different, and besides, she reminds me of Buffy a lot. Brought back those memories of my adolescence.

6. I don’t like The Office. Whatever anyone says, it’s dumb.

7. I hate cooking. The closest I ever get to that is when I make myself pancakes. And I only do it because it’s fun to flip them in the air. I’m like a kitchen ninja. Give me a pan and some eggs!

And now for the people I’ll pass this lovely award to:

(I don't care if you've too many awards already!)

1. Tracey Hansen (look out for the HumpDayChallenge on Wednesdays!) 
2. Stacy Green (the queen of all things crime and thrilling) 
3. Angela Wallace (very insightful, very engaging) 
4. Amber West (I like it when she rants…) 
5. Carissa Elg (MY PRECIOUS) 
6. Ozlem Yikici (who is a compulsive blogger) 
7. Michael Offutt (watch out for that one) 

Okay guys, the ball’s in your courts. I’m outie. :O)

Thanks for thinking of me! I like VA too. I hear there's a movie in the works. *grin*

Ava Jae said...

Congratulations winners (you included, Violeta ^_^).

Enjoy the belly dancing and have a great trip!

SP Sipal said...

I heard she sang a good song...!

Whack! Argh! All the way from Bulgaria. :x

Jen Kirchner said...

Congrats on your award! Very well deserved.

Michael Offutt, Author said...

Thanks for the great award. I shall pass it on :)

Lyn Midnight said...

Thanks guys! :) See ya soonish!

Lawd, I STILL haven't decided who to give the Versatile Blogger award to! I have to read more blogs! For some reason, it feels like some kind of monumental decision. I don't know how you can deal with it.

I miss you already!

There's nothing better than singing along to the radio. I have a theory that if you turn toward the window when a particularly questionable note is about to come out, that it will reflect off the glass and sound perfect.

Jen said...

lol! I'm glad everyone knows and loves me :)

I can totally relate to the singing thing. Now even my toddler is tells me to be quiet when I sing to EVERYTHING. Lol!

Stupid internets ate my comment. Thank you so much! I'll try to do something to recognize this on my blog as soon as I have a chance.

Mark D. Evans said...

Congrats on the win (yeah, I know I'm a bit late).

I think you should get someone to film you doing pancakes... the people need proof :-)

Lyn Midnight said...

@Marjorie I felt the same way when I didn't follow many blogs. It gets better with numbers. Besides, my blogroll is full of deserving award-winners. ;)

@Tracey Miss you too!

@Leslie Agreed. I actually discovered that my voice sounds better (at least in my head) when I sing in an empty room as opposed to a cluttered one. Better acoustics. ^_^

@Jen Aww, now that's a smart one!

@Amber Sorry this keeps happening, apparently my blog's a Bermuda triangle of its own...

@Mark You can come here and see for yourself, lol.

Alas, I am the 13th poster yet again. I wonder when I shall break the curse...
