One Lovely Blog Award!!!

One Lovely Blog Award

I am super happy!! I am super excited!!! I am on cloud no.9 today!!!!


Because I have been nominated for the FIRST EVER AWARD for my blog!!!!!

And I am utterly, whole heartedly, absolutely, entirely, extremely grateful to Terry for honouring me with this. Thank you so much, Terry! I am really glad that you found my blog worth nominating in spite of the short time that we’ve known each other.

Terry is a wonderful writer and I’m sure all of you will enjoy going through her posts. I absolutely love her style of writing. So as soon as you’re done going through my blog, I would urge you to pay her a visit as well.

Now, for the rules of this award,

1. Give generous thanks to the blogger that nominated you—- Check√

2. Write 7 things about yourself—- Check√ (Check below)

3. Make a list of 15 Bloggers you admire and let them know how awesome they are—- Check√ (Check below)

Now, time for seven things about me:

  1. I laugh a lot. And, believe me, I am LOUD! I am used to random people staring at me whenever I go out. So if you ever happen to meet me in a cafe, don’t be embarrassed. That’s just how life is for me.
  2. I read a LOT. Ask my Mom. She’s the one who is always annoyed about that. I miss half the things she says because the book is too interesting. (I hope she doesn’t read this). If you’re reading this Mom, you know I love you.
  3. I look EXACTLY like my Dad. Well, just without the beard and a lot more hair on my head. And about 11 inches shorter. And I have no grey hair. But we look EXACTLY the same.
  4.  I am truly, madly, deeply, head-over-heels in love with Jim Morrison. I remember I have cried a couple of times because he’s dead. I can get too touchy about him. So if you hate him, please keep it to yourself unless you want me to burst into tears.
  5. I am an only child. So I have never had the pleasure of hitting someone just for the heck of it. I am gonna make up for it when I get married.
  6. I love sitting on Roller Coasters. But I have never done any kind of adventure sports. I have been planning to go bungee jumping for a couple of years. I am gonna go. Someday. When I’m a little less freaked out.
  7. I wanna study literature. I don’t care if it is after I am 60 and have to use dentures and a walker. But I WANT to study it.

Now comes the time for nominating 15 other bloggers. It’s gonna be a tough job as there are too many good bloggers around. I hope you like reading their blogs.

Again, thank you so much, Terry! I really appreciate the gesture.

    Thank you for the nomination. I am honoured. I adopted the policy of accepting any award once only, in order to to reduce the amount of time they consume.

    Great acceptance of a well deserved award!
    i hope your future husband isn’t reading this either. (you shouldn’t say you’re going to hit him until after the vows.)(Trust me on this.)

    It’s difficult to be an only child and not get to hit anyone for free. I’ve grown out of my hitting urges. But you can always continue by reading about it. 🙂

    Congratulations! Thanks for the mention. Interesting you were an only child. I grew up with five brothers so I guess I had the advantage/curse of hitting and being hit by someone all the time– I look forward to getting to know a bit more about you and checking out your blog this weekend! Thanks for visiting mine.
