Nominated for a Creative Blogger Award

creative-blogger-awardSo, the other day, I notice a comment on one of my posts to the effect of, “I have nominated you for the Creative Blogger Award! Go here to see what this is!” So I go visit My Tiny Obsessions to see what this is all about. My ego, of course, fantasized something like the blogging version of the Hugo award (silly Ego! I point and laugh at you!), but it’s nothing so serious as that. Rest assured, I have not rocketed up from obscurity to the highest echelons of notoriety within half a year, with only a couple dozen followers scattered around the world. πŸ˜‰

From what I can see, it’s a medium for networking among us bloggers while having a little fun! As I really suck at networking, I am happy to accept this mini-Challenge! πŸ™‚

Here’s the rules:

1) Post the link of the blog that nominated you.

Already done, above.

Thanks, My Tiny Obsessions!

2) Share 5 Random Facts about yourself.

I am a high-functioning autistic. Which basically means, my brain processes the same information your brain does, but in a different manner and often reaching a different result. You strange-minded normal people, you. πŸ˜‰

My favorite animals are wolves, and my favorite pets are dogs. Canines make much more sense than people. πŸ™‚

I am a night owl, not a morning lark. If I ever get a telemarketing call at 4 AM, there will soon follow a blood oath of absolute destruction! :p

My favorite foods are all the Americanized versions of Italian dishes: lasagna, pizza, spaghetti, etc. I particularly love marinara sauce. Combine that with how I put ketchup on everything else, and my fair-skinned sensitivity to the sun, and my friends have joked about me being a vampire, but with tomato sauce and ketchup instead of blood. I’m a tomato vampire. 3:)

I have always loved storytelling. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be an author (at least, once I got past the stage of wanting to be an astronaut, power ranger, and teenage mutant ninja turtle), and I wrote my first story when I was six years old. I’ve been working with words ever since. Now, if I could just figure out how to make someΒ cash with all my words… πŸ˜€

3) Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify the nominees.

Most of the bloggers I’ve seen do this have kept it to five or so nominations, but what the heck? Let’s see how many I got!

Geek It Cool

Honoring the Heroines

The Nerd Nebula


Screen Sage

(for a total of seventeen new nominations! My Little Obsessions was already nominated twice, so…)

See? One, two, three, easy as pie! πŸ˜€
