Natasha of Natasha’s Memory Garden has nominated me for the WordPress Family Award. That means it’s another exciting day of shameless self-promotion here at Bumblepuppies!
To celebrate, I’ve designed my own award logo:
Somehow, the traditional touchy-feely version didn’t quite do it for me.
And now it’s time for seven more things you don’t know about me.
1- I enjoyed teaching (which is how I could afford to get through grad school) but the one type of job I don’t apply for is teaching positions in my major. I’m demonstrably competent and qualified to teach related subjects but I’ve had no luck on that front.
2- Even though I occasionally make jokes that imply otherwise, I have no fear of math.
3- I do not have a library card, probably because I don’t read the kind of stuff public libraries tend to offer.
4- Off the top of my head, I cannot name five movies that have been released over the past five years. So… I’m not exactly a film buff.
5- Off the top of my head, I can name dozens of varieties of central- and eastern European pork products.
6- I also think turkey is tasty. This is why I’ve never needed a cardiologist. (Not that I could afford one anyway…)
7- I would love to try chocolate covered grasshoppers. If you know of a shop in the U.S. that ships them, send me a link. Seriously.
The 15 blogs I’m nominating will appear after a few more paragraphs. Blogs that were nominated last time were not considered for this because everyone should have the opportunity to advertise my blog.
If you need help advertising me and weren’t nominated for this award, you can always tweet about me or like me on Facebook. Facebook and Twitter may insult my intelligence but your expressions of love and admiration do not. (On the other hand, the only things I send out on the blog’s token accounts are the automated notifications of new posts. I don’t think I’ve logged into either since creating those accounts and connecting them to this blog.)
(A note to the nominees: you may use my award logo if you wish, even if you’re not dysfunctional. Since it displays the “Bumblepuppies” name prominently, I would be more than happy to see it go viral.)
