Lovely and Inspiring

I’ve been nominated for three awards!  In less than 24 hours.  Oh my, oh my, and oh my…

AnnaDango nominated me for the Liebster Award – which due to some requirements (“new” blog and/or fewer than 200 followers) I have to decline.  But you should all check out this and this

What did you think?  Good stuff, right?  Right.  I hope you clicked on the follow button while you were over there so you can ride along with the Rat Diaries.


Ever had an addiction?  Steph has, and you can read about it here.  Once you are there, and I know you will click on these links because the power of my words compels you, you will also see that she has nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.

Or, for those who need pictures, this:

It is kind of lovely isn’t it?  The award that it is.  My blog is … well, boring, plain, default.  Perhaps the words aren’t.  That may be up for some debate, but Steph at least seems to think they are lovely, and considering the source that is quite the compliment.  So, take a moment, right click on either of the two links above and open in a new window.  Or, you can open this link as well:  Go.  Read.  Now.  Enjoy. 

Yes, in that order.  I’ll wait.


Okay, she’s amazing right?  Glad we agree.  Now, on to business:

7 Things About Me:

1 – I may or may not have an addiciton to movies, battery acid, and/or grumpy cat memes.
2 – I’m a gemini.  I’m a gemini.  (Wait, did I just say that twice?)
3 – My favorite web comics are probably CAD and Questionable Content.
4 – I was accepted to college as a Bio-Chem major, graduated with a degree in Psychology and working in Banking.  It all kind of makes sense to me.
5 – I use: Way. Too. Much. Punctuation, in my writing.  Hmm, maybe you already knew that?
6 – I used to do crazy things on my rollerblades.  Crazy.  Things.  (See, what did you I tell you about the punctuation?) 
7 – I sometimes wonder when I’m going to feel like an adult.  Does that happen all at once?  Is it happening gradually over time?  Will it happen when I become a parent?  Will it happen when my parents aren’t around anymore?


(Drum roll please.)  And the new nominations for the One Lovely Blog Award are:


In other news, TheLoneSheWolf nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award:


After you’ve clicked on those links, you should click on this one too:

(Links, links, links – this post is just one giant link fest, isn’t it?)

And now we are all agreed, yes?  Fantastic, yes?  Great!

7 things about me:

1 – I feel like we pretty much already covered 7 things about me today.
2 – I feel pretty much well loved through my blog.
3 – I feel happy, oh so happy.  (sing song)
4 – I feel like being silly.  Maybe I should go to Camelot?
5 – I feel like if you have made it this far down in this post you are my hero.
6 – I feel like if you have made it this far, and you leave a comment, and you click on all the links, you will be whatever is above hero status in my book.
7 – I feel like “7” is one too many things to have to post about myself. 

(Second drum roll please).  And the nominations for the Very Inspring Blog Award are:

shameless promotion

And not even of the “self” kind.

I was nominated today for the REALITY Blog Award (Real Energizing Amazing Lovely Inspiring Touching Yippee), and while I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to follow through with the required stipulations for accepting the award, I definitely wanted all of my wonderful followers to take a minute to check out the blogger that nominated me in the first place:

You won’t regret it.  You might even find yourself sticking around for more than a minute.  I usually do.

So, go forth, read, enjoy!

And thus endeth this episode of shamelss promotion.  Tune in next time for… well, probably more of the same.  That’s just the way we roll here at the matticus kingdom.
