The Seven Facts Award

28 Feb

I’ve just won my first blogging award! “The Seven Facts” award, as it’s called, has just been bestowed on me by Confessions of a Readaholic. Thank you very much! Here’s how it works:

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to his/her blog.
  2. Write a post about the award, in which you share seven facts about yourself.
  3. Share the award with fifteen worthy bloggers.

Here are seven things about me:

  1. I don’t think that I could go for a day without listening to music. What kind, you ask? I’ll listen to anything, and my collection includes such diverse selections as Dolly Parton, The Beatles, Lady Gaga, and Counting Crows.
  2. My room is decorated with a model dragon hanging from the ceiling and a huge Harry Potter movie poster. I’m on the lookout for some Edward Gorey prints to hang on the wall.
  3. Je parle un peu français. (Translation: I speak a little French. Just a little, mind you).
  4. My deepest hope is to become a published author.
  5. If I could teleport to any location on the planet, I would visit the Cotehele estate in Cornwall, England. I visited it once and would probably scream in delight and jump up and down if I got to go again.
  6. I am a major classics geek. Salve! Quid agis? 🙂
  7. Much to the confusion and disbelief of my peers, I do not like dogs and cats, soda, Justin Bieber, or the color pink.

Here are the bloggers I’m passing on the award to (in no particular order):

    I went to Coteheles, too! Isn’t it beautiful there?
    I’m a Latin dork as well. Ab absurdum est!
