Thanks are also due to Ernesto, for awarding me the Creative Blogger Award. This requires me to list seven things (not people) I love in no particular order. So here goes:
Being by the sea
Drinking the odd malt whisky
Jordan's “Crunchy” breakfast cereals
Watching Star Trek (any series) and Dr Who (all-time favourite Doctor: David Tennant)
Sitting in the garden (but not when it's raining or snowing)
Spending time with friends
Eating bread (white, thick sliced) and marmite in bed
And while mulling over my list of seven things, I discover I've been awarded a Premio Dardo award by Lyn, which is given “in recognition of cultural, ethical, literary and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing”. Thank you, Lyn.
Who should I award these awards to? I'm spoilt for choice, since I read the blogs I read because I consider them to be friendly, creative and original. I find it quite impossible to choose.
As regards the Friendly Blogger Award, it seems to me that a good friend is both an attentive listener (or in the case of a blog, reader) and game for a laugh. As a result, I have devised the following self-awarding system. If you regularly visit this blog and can answer the following questions, feel free to -in fact, please do- award yourself a prize: a Friendly Blogger Award. Just copy the picture from the right margin!
All the questions are based on past posts to this blog and the answers are obvious when you find them. You are allowed to use the “search blog” facility, of course.
Here we go with the questions:
Which part of the body is primarily involved in the practice of “boku maru”?
Which book, published in 1941, incorporates engaging illustrations explaining how the human body works?
What did Karl Marx squeeze while writing Das Kapital?
Who wrote a haiku about being a snowman?
Great Aunt Maria is more commonly referred to as what?
