Well, isn’t this just lovely?

Posted: September 10, 2012 in MK Virtual Blog Tour

First, I’d like to thank The Academy.  It truly is an honor just to be nominated.  Wait….that’s the other acceptance speech.  Perhaps someday.

Until then, I find myself in possession of A Lovely Blog Award nomination.


Ain’t it shiny???  Many thanks to The Delightfully Talented  Emmie Mears (yes, that is her full name) for the nod.

The idea here is to share 7 things you (yes, all of you) may not know about me, and then to nominate 7 other worthy souls to go and do likewise.

So where to begin?  Since I am a crafty sort, I thought I’d couch these 7 tidbits in a “desert island” format, i.e., those things you would want to take with you if you knew you’d find yourself stranded with only Wilson-the-Volleyball for company.

So, in no particular order, My Seven Desert Island Musts:

The Book:  Imajica, by Clive Barker.  Why?  Well, it’s really long, hello.  And, I think being stranded and all, I’d have plenty of time to actually figure out what it’s all about.  Win.

The Movie (yes, it is assumed there will be a Blu-ray player, a TV, and electricity, duh): The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.  Three movies, sez you?  Hey, sez I, I have them in a boxed set—one box = one really long movie.

The  Grub:  Sushi.  Nuff said.

The Album (yes, there is also a stereo on this island):  Daniel Ho, Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. It’s drifty and pleasant, no pesky words to get stuck in your brain, and…well, hey, I’m on an island.

The Drink: The survivalist in me says water…but I’m going to go with a nice Tazo Iced Green Tea, Venti, no sweetener.

The Exercise Video (there’s a TV, remember?):  Shiva Rea’s Daily Energy, Vinyasa Yoga.  Endless combinations and it will take years to master it.  Namaste.

The Appliance:  Typewriter.  Oh the joys of unlimited time to write multiple masterpieces.  No paper, you say?  I’ll use leaves.  Pfff, look at what The Professor made on Gilligan’s Island.  Oh, and why a typewriter instead of a word processor?  The sound.  The clickety-clack wonder of worlds being created.

And now, I’d like to pass off this sweaty baton and nominate a few other lovely  blog types.

And a final thank you to one of the finest bloggers out there, Emmie Mears.  Run, do not walk, to her blog.  Follow it.  You will not be disappointed.

    I will take that appellation to the bank. 🙂

    Also, your Victor badge looks rather fetching in your sidebar.
