Thank you, thank you…oh, thank you (wipes a tear) http://pedrothecat.com aka marucankissmyfurry…. for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger award! Is now the time to go all Gywnneth Paltrow? (is there ever a time to go all Gwynneth Paltrow, I hear you ask!) I’m not sure what the qualification criteria are for the award, apart from whimsical appeal to another blogger, but that’s good enough for me! I am reasonably sure that this is the only award I’ll ever win, so I’m going to lap it up! Actually there are some rules, as so concisely laid out in marucankissmyfurry…..’s (can I abbreviate to mckmf?) blog, which are:
Conditions of the Versatile Blogger Award are:
1. Thank the person (cat) who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the Award on to 15 recently discovered blogs and let them know about it
So without further ado, I would like to nominate the following, for dedication to blogging, for providing little doses of inspiration when needed, and for producing little random informational gems.
Here are seven things about me:
I once (unintentionallly) caused a radio station to be evacuated, while I was about 100 miles away. I used salt to achieve this feat.
I embrace crazy-cat-lady-ness as a sign of an evolved mind. If you can love a creature that feels zero obligation to please you, then I am sure this can be extended to anyone who fails to do what you want. I hope.
Japanese prints are one of my addictions. The most money I have ever spent on something *just for me* was on my Toko Shinoda entitled ‘Torch’.
I live with a newly married Hindu couple from Bangalore as well as my husband, our two kids and five cats.
No one is more surprised than me by the fact that my pop culture spoofs starring my cats now sell around the world. Go figure!
My favourite word is entropy, cos I’m one of those awful people who can’t make anything without making a mess.
The street I live on has been immortalised in song by Van Morrison. First person to tell me where I live wins a prize.
And with the flourish of a golden envelope, in no particular order, my nominees are:
http://adoptalol.com Lovely kitty fosterer doing great work to help her foster-kits find homes.
http://wazeau.wordpress.com Everything you ever needed to know about parrots is here. And she has two fine cats as well.
http://threecatyard.wordpress.com The Gene Genius.
http://japanesephotolog.wordpress.com Beautiful images. Gives me wanderlust.
http://snailquake.wordpress.com Very entertaining and informative posts from Scotland.
http://piggylittle.wordpress.com/ Always makes me hungry. Wish she’d write more!
http://raykiwsp.wordpress.com Ray’s Daily. Offbeat humour. Random stories. Like. Resists being followed….Well, has an interesting approach to it anyway. Doesn’t assume you’ll want all his stuff – a refreshingly humble approach!
http://ilovetypography.com/ Cos I’m a font sucker….And I can’t resist Seb Lester’s work.
http://www.youtube.com/user/shironekoshiro I hope this counts. It’s more or less a video blog. And Shiro Neko is AN ICON.
http://ohiokimono.wordpress.com/ Kimonos…..Need I say more?
http://cardandgiftblog.com This blog showcases the cutest stuff from new designers of giftware. And Charlotte is just lovely.
http://www.veer.com/more/ Even though it’s corporate, they still churn out the most amazing posts. All bloggers are equal!
And I have to include: http://brianmorrisonweddings.com Brian would kill me if I didn’t. He’s a photographer, in case this escapes you…
And a special mention to whoever devised this technique to get us all to explore more! Round of applause. Or appaws, if you’re in the crazy cat lady camp!
