The Very Last Award
Over the past ten months that I've been blogging (eep! Has it been THAT long?) I've received several blogging awards, each of which has delighted me in its turn. However, I think you'd all agree that there are an awful lot of awards flying around the blogosphere, and frankly it gets a bit tiresome coming up with seven random things about myself every time. (And pretty much all the awards ask for seven random things.)
Awdur very kindly awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award today, and I'm taking this opportunity to go out with a bang. The Versatile Blogger Award will be the last award acknowledged on Yet Another Period Drama Blog-- though I will appreciate it greatly if you award me in the future, I would prefer to reserve my blog posts for other topics than awards. (However, if you're doing a tag of any kind--literary-related, holiday-related, random-related, whatever--please feel free to tag me if you wish! I really enjoy doing those.) Make sense? Okay! On to the last seven random things.
(Oh, and since I've actually received this award before, I'm not passing it on again this time.)
1- I prefer cold weather to hot weather. I am reminded of this every August.
2- I'm hoping to post my review of Sense and Sensibility 2008 tomorrow... which means I actually need to finish it. Ahem.
3- I guest posted at Rachel's and AnnaKate's blogs in July and forgot to link to them. Oops.
4- I'm currently reading Charles Dickens' Dombey and Son with my dad. It's amazing.
5- I know he's supposed to be an absolutely amazing singer, but I just can't stand Josh Groban. Especially that song about, "You drive me nuts, and I flee to the mountains. You drive me nuts, just like a stormy sea..." Oh, that's not quite the way the lyrics go? My bad.
6- Banana-yogurt smoothies are my favorite summertime breakfast.
7- I've been sewing like crazy for the past few weeks--up to three and four hours a day, which is a lot for me. Pictures of what I've been working on will be revealed all in good time. ;)
