OMG! OMG! I never imagined this happening, so I didn’t prepare a speech. First and foremost, I must thank The Excessive Gardener for the nomination. We’ve been together since the beginning and I wouldn’t be sitting here–alone on my couch–writing a pretend acceptance speech without her. We live in different worlds: hers is one where things grow outside year round; mine not so much. Yet, we have come together in this blogging world. Thanks WordPress!
Part of this nomination is to describe myself with every letter of alphabet.
Me in a 26-word-nutshell:
A) Ageless – I’ve been told I look quite young for my age. I attribute this to immaturity and no kids
B) Books – So many have changed my life
C) Cheezies – Hawkins. They are delicious and gross and have a subtle taste of gasoline. Try them today!
D) Dog-lover – Dogs should rule this world! In dog we trust
E) Eilidh – My name. It defines me! PS it’s pronounced A-lee
G) Gassy – not what you think. It actually describes someone with a healthy digestive system–so don’t be hating my kick-ass digestive system.
I) Indignant – What?
J) Jazz hands
K) Krodachrome – love digital photography, but miss the days of waiting for a roll of film to be developed, and then be surprised
L) Love – My awesome dog
M) Morning glory – Early riser
N) Number disliker
Q) Qi – My favourite word in Scrabble
R) Runner – a long time ago just after I was a smoker
S) Saskatchewan – it’s where I’m from
T) Thain – In memory of my dad
U) Underwire bras
V) Violent Femmes – Blister in the Sun. Memories of Checkers, cheap draft, and sweaty dancing
X) Xanadau – “Xanadau, your neon lights will shine”
Z) Zumba – I think it’s dumb
