A Handful of Awards

Well, this year's almost over, so what better way to (sort of) cap off the year than with a few blog awards? (My movie tally will be up later today.) Anyway, Michael gave me not one but two blog awards. And they couldn't be anymore different.

First up is the Blog of the Year Award. First off, I'm flattered. Secondly, the rules go:
  • Select the blog(s) you think deserve the "Blog of the Year 2012" Award.
  • Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen - there's no minimum or maximum number of blogs required - and "present" them with their award.
  • Please include a link back to this page and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
  • Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the "rules" with them You can now also join our Facebook group – click "like" on this page "Blog of the Year 2012" Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience 
  • As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars.
I'll get to all of that in a sec. I have to mention the other blog award Michael gave me.

Award #2 is The Versatile Blogger Award, one that I'm a bit familiar with. Anyway, rules:
  • Display the award certificate on your website.
  • Announce your win with a post and include a link to whoever presented your award.
  • Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
  • Create a post linking to them and drop them a comment to tip them off.
  • Post 7 interesting facts about yourself.
Oy, again with the facts. Doesn't everyone know me by now? Okay, less whining, more typing. Um...
  1. I have over a hundred DVDs. (I don't know the exact number.)
  2. I also have way too books. (Again, I don't know the exact number.)
  3. I still don't have my driver's license.
  4. Or a significant other for that matter. (I anticipate that'll change in the following year.)
  5. As of late, I aspire to make a name for myself. (Why else do you think I'm working on that screenplay?)
  6. Speaking of said screenplay, I might be done with it before next month is over. (Keyword is "might".)
  7. When I finish it, I kind of want to see it actually be made into a film.
Okay, boring bit's over. Now onto choosing bloggers. I'm killing two birds with one stone here and combining both award rules. However, I'm not doing 15 bloggers.


  1. Thank you so much for the award! This is my third one! Yay! Though I won't probably post the second one I'm still hugely grateful! :)

  2. Uuu, thank you, i will get on it tomorrow pr on the 2nd or 3rd.have a great 2013!

    1. You're very welcome. Happy New Year to you too. :)

  3. Thanks so much!! I don't have my driver's license either, I think it's better this way - If I ever drove a car there would be hundreds of causalities.

    1. You're welcome. I just want my license so I can get to the movie theater without anyone else involved.

  4. Aw, you're lovely, Anna! Thank you so much! I don't drive yet either, but I think I have to go for my license this month :( I guess it'll make work more convenient....
    Any ideas for how you want your screenplay made? Know any recent film grads where you are? I can't wait to see it!

    1. You're welcome.

      I kind of want to sell my screenplay to a studio. A friend of my sister's has actually worked in Hollywood, so I might convey it through him.

    2. Nice! It's always good to know someone who's already in.

    3. That's sort of my goal for 2013. (That, and the driver's license thing.)

  5. I have to get my license soon. As for significant other, chances in India are less.
    Your screenplay <3 I hope it gets made into a movie as well, with your dream cast.

    Thanks for the award!

    1. You're welcome.

      Mind you, I probably won't get the actors I want. I've made a backup list as well.

  6. I have my license, but I was eligible for it for over a year before I got mine.

    Thanks again for the awards! :)
