Today was a good day for me, digitally speaking. I was nominated for two Awards by my good friend ShethP of the Sheth’s Perspective fame. She made a wise choice. I know that I deserve all kinds of Awards. I’m glad to know that she thinks so too. This is a good start for my journey in WordPress.
Wonderful – ShethP be thy name. ShethP, I thank thee with mine heart for thy bountiful munificence. Excuse the Shakespeare. I do that when I’m excited, even though it makes no sense, to me or to anyone else.
Aside from nominating me, ShethP is also known for her wonderful blog Sheth’s Perspective, in which she mostly writes poems, which are windows to her soul. Sometimes, the windows are tinted, and you have to strain to see what is inside, but I assure you that it is worth the strain. I always enjoy going through them. You can also find her musings there.
This in one of my favourite posts from his blog. It’s called Do Not Disturb. It aptly describes my state of mind when I’m reading a book.
I’ve never been nominated for anything before. *sob*. I would like to congratulate my parents for producing me. I could easily have ended up being dried-up ejaculate. I would also like to thank my agent… Wait… I have to win first…damn…
Dragon’s Loyalty Award.
This award is given to people who follow and like and comment and stuff. Regularly. Stalker-like. The more you stalk, the better your chances are for winning this award. I don’t know whether to be offended or pleased. I’m going with pleased. I’m still confused about the Award committee’s choice of animal though. When it comes to loyalty, nothing beats dogs. I don’t know much about dragons, except what I’ve learnt from Game of Thrones. They breathe fire. I would rather a dog hate me, than have a dragon love me. Oh well…
To commemorate this occasion, I share 7 things about myself, that you might not have known:
1) I’m not a spy
2) I don’t have a passport
3) I haven’t visited any foreign country that requires me to have a passport
4) I am a bookworm who hasn’t read Orwell’s 1984
5) I have a pet elephant.
6) I sometimes pretend to have a pet elephant.
7) I use spectacles/contacts
8) I’m afraid of LASIK
9) My bucket list has more pages than Atlas shrugged.
10) I used to think that ShethP, the person who nominated me, was a male. I even referred to her using male pronouns in this post. Fortunately for me, while searching for a particular post of hers, I found out that she was female after all. Disaster averted. Pronouns corrected.
Wait – 10? Did I over-share?
One of the many conditions for being nominated for this award is, you have to nominate other bloggers, who’ve been kind to you. Usually nomination is a difficult task. It is easy for me, because very few people read my blog, and even less lift up their fingers to comment. So, I nominate these people, with many thanks:
A.H.Browne, from Pouring my art out
Anna Mulberry Mawson, from BLURBNSTUFF
Ashley Nicole, from AshleyNicole
Cranky Buddha from Notes from a cranky Buddha

“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
P.S: Some of you do not visit as regularly as I would’ve liked you to, so I thought I could guilt you into visiting my blog more often. It’s sad, I know…
