Superior Scribbler and Kreativ Blogger Award

Thank you! Thank you! Thomas was kind of enough to award me the Superior Scribbler Award and the Kreativ Blogger Award. How snaptastic! And now I get to nominate people too! How fun! Here are my nominations for the Superior Scribbler Award AND the Kreativ Blogger Award (please hold your applause until all the nominees have been read):

1. Bane of Anubis- his posts are testosterone filled, jam packed, and well written. He's enlightened me on several topics such as anorexic models, Twilight spoofs, and my very own narcissism. I've also read his book, The Lost Children Chronicles, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

2. Marissa, although new to the blogosphere, has the makings of a star (on the ice and paper).

3. Ivy, over at Shut Up and Love, has always been one of my favorite reads. She's a poet but also an observer of the fine inner workings of love.

4. Hilary Wagner, already a proud owner of the Kreativ Blogger Award, has wowed me with Edwin Copperpot and is therefore in my mind a Superior Scribbler.

5. Renne Pinner, is always sharing bits of hope, reality, and passion for writing. I visit her blog regularly.

6. L.T. Host over at Quest Published has made me laugh on many occasions, especially when sharing kitty stories. I thoroughly enjoy her Fantasy Tuesdays and she also received an honorable mention over at Nathan Bransford's first paragraph contest.

7. Matthew Delman, is also a proud owner of the Kreative Blogger award, but is quite deserving of the Superior Scribbler award because he is always talking about steam and these awesomely weird gadgets.

Rule 3 of the Kreative Blogger Award says that I have to post seven interesting facts about myself.

1. I've been ice skating for 18 years.
2. I own a video production company.
3. When I was young, other than being an olympic figure skater, I wanted to be a whale trainer. And thus I watched Free Willy more times than I care to admit.
4. I have a brother who is in dental school and is constantly asking if he can practice injections on me. Yikes!
5. I'm 29 years old. Got a cat in February 2009 and I don't have the balls to tell my parents. Even though I own my home. Cats are looked upon with distaste in Indian culture and my Mom thinks they are allergy brothels. Anyways, it's been so long now I'm not quite sure how to even bring the subject up. Lame. I know.
6. I've watched New Moon....twice. Yeah, I know.
7. I baked brownies last night and...I forgot the egg. It emerged from the oven like bubbling sludge.

These are the rules for the Superior Scribbler Award:

1.Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.

2.Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.

  1. ANITA! Oh my gosh, thank you so much! That is sooooo sweet! I'm so glad you like Edwin! An editor has him right now and I'm very nervous! He's like my third child!!! Giving out (and getting) awards is fun!

    Thanks again!!!

    xoxo -- Hilary

  2. Thanks for the honor, Anita!

    Doubly so because I was lacking in ideas for today's post, and this gives me something to write about.

  3. Congratulations Anita! And to all the other winners, looking forward to checking out a few new sites.

    Happy writing!

  4. Thanks a bunch, Anita. You're warm generosity is always greatly appreciated.

    Your point about the cat cracked me up b/c my MIL, who is Chinese, has similar views about cats (and dogs, too).

    And I hear ya on the poking/prodding -- when my wife was in med school she routinely wanted to do various exams on me... I put my foot down when it came to the hernia exam :)

  5. Thanks for the mention:)

    Yes, I found the cat dilema amusing too. My Father-in-law was born in Tunisia (where cats are vermin) and has transmitted a similar distrust of felines to his daughter. When he comes to visit our cat Clovis jumps straight onto his lap. somehow they just know...

  6. Hurray for your award! I follow almost all those blogs and don't know how I've missed yours. Shame on me, but I'll be back!

    And I just read your prior post and it was a nice affirmation to my novel. I'm on Revision #3 and my plot fits almost perfectly into those percentages. Yay!

  7. Congratulations, Anita!

    The Olympic figure skating impresses me no end. My father taught me to ice skate so I ended up playing hockey with him and the guys and some older boys. I could go fast and play rough even though I was small, but I could never do a figure 8 or any of the fancy stuff the girls did. But I admired it a lot.
