I’m an inspirational blogger!?

I know, I was shocked too.

It’s always so gratifying to receive an award nomination from another blogger. No one else understands just how much time and effort goes into keeping a blog going. Especially a blog centered around food.

Many thanks to The Great Zambini for the nomination.

Acceptance of the aforementioned award requires a specific set of rules and they are as follows:

First Rule: You do not talk about Fight Club.

Okay, so that’s not really the first rule for accepting this award but I can’t think about the first rule of any situation without my brain going right to that Fight Club reference.

Kind of like when someone says “stop” my brain thinks it’s hammer time.

Okay seriously, these are the actual rules:

First Rule: Link back to the person who nominated you (done).

Second Rule: Share 7 random but hopefully interesting facts about yourself with your readers.

Third Rule: Pass on the love by nominating 15 other bloggers for the same award.

So here goes, 7 random bits of info about yours truly:

1. I don’t like when people sing happy birthday to me. It’s weird I know, but I’ve always hated it.

2. I am currently learning French with my daughter. Hopefully I’ll never have to actually use it because my accent is horrible. She makes sure to remind me of that fact all the time. Ironically, the phrase I have the most trouble with translates to: “I don’t understand” in English.

3. For about 5 minutes, I seriously considered naming my daughter Plum. When that was vetoed, I actually suggested Violet Plum. I cringe when I think about that today. I blame the pregnancy hormones.

4. I’m extremely empathetic. If you’re crying, I’m crying. End of story.

5. My childhood nickname was Samuel. My grandfather still only calls me Sam, Samuel, or Muely.

6. I was way too old when I found out that approximately did not mean exactly. I wish I had a great excuse for that but sadly I don’t. So there it is.

7. I am terrible with chop sticks. It’s not cute. Not even a little.

Now that that’s done, I’d just like to say to my nominees that your blogs are fabulous. I know that I don’t comment as much as I should but I do stalk visit your blogs regularly and I appreciate all of the work that each of you put into making your corners of the internet a more interesting and inspiring place.
