Blog Award

I received this award from Cathy at Accountants can cook? a while back but I haven't gotten around to posting it for 1 simple reason: it involves me to do stuff. With this kind of attitude, if I were an actress, I'd never get an Oscar in my hands because it would involve me to pick a dress, go to the hairdresser, get my makeup done, find shoes & jewerly - even typing this hypothetical list tires me. I think I've been working at a software company too long - I'm used to people presenting themselves in decade-old T-shirts.

Anyway, the "work" in this award is simple. You write down 7 personality traits & you pass it on to 7 other bloggers. So here goes:

  1. I'm a workaholic with a skewed sense of priorities. Right now, I should be working on an editing certification. Instead, I edit more texts.
  2. I'm cynical. I believe things when I see them, and until then, I make stupid jokes.
  3. I'm egocentric. This does not mean that I do not care about other people. It means that I try to relate to other people through my own experiences, or, try to extrapolate & figure out what I can learn from the situations of others.
  4. I have apathetic tendencies. Maybe that's why I haven't gotten the cert yet.
  5. I'm quick witted. Sometimes I'm even funny, I've been told.
  6. I'm a bit of a slob but yet germ-o-phobic at the same time. I know what can grow on my desk - I do not know what grows on the desks of others.
  7. I like to make other people smile. This makes me happy.
So, that's it. 7 personality traits & pass this along to 7 other blogs.

  1. A Foodie's Thought's
  2. Shizuoka Gourmet
  3. Yum-o-Rama
  4. Samurai Viking Cuisine
  5. Spanish Recipes
  6. Tangled Noodle
  7. The Lunch Box Project
These are all blogs I love to read for their picutres, ideas & excellent writing style (or, in the case of The Lunch Box Project, the original art).

Thanks to Cathy for the award & thanks to these 7 bloggers for their work!

eeeeek but thanks for thinking of me. I'll try and do this over the next few days after I decide which 7 traits I can actually go public with...haha. ;)

Núria said...

You are so sweet :D. Thanks a lot for the award dear!!!! Really, this kind of things make my faith in humans come back ;D... if you know what I mean!

I love to know more things about you♥. Making people smile and laugh is one of my favourite too!

Tangled Noodle said...

Thank you so much for sharing your award! Your #6 trait rings a bell - I'm a terrible housekeeper but expect that others will tidy up when we visit. Terrible of me!

I'm finishing up my summer class tomorrow so I hope to be back blog reading and catching up with all the great posts I've missed!

Murasaki: take your time - I did! ;-)

Núria: I'm so happy I could make your day a little bit brighter. I hope your problem finds a solution very quickly!

Tangled Noodle: lol! Even worse: I'll tidy before people come over, but then thoroghly clean after they leave. Hope your summer class went well (I can hardly believe that a summer class is finished - the weather here is still so cold...)

Thank you so much! How nice of you. I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner; it's been a hectic time, and, sadly, I've been neglecting the blogging world.

Also, I liked reading your 7 personality traits. Very interesting! :)
