Epic Awesomeness!


TheImaginator epically nominated me for the awesome award called “The Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness” which I think is a very epic award to receive and therefore thank theImaginator for awarding it to me in his awesomeness.

The rules are:

–          Write ten facts about yourself

–          Nominate ten other bloggers who write epically awesome content

–          Tell them that they’ve won

So here are the ten facts:

1. I love climbing (as in sports climbing)

2. I love sharing my texts/stories

3. And I love when the texts/stories provoke a visible reaction from the reader/listener.

4. I’ve just begun learning Japanese with a friend with the help of the book: Japanese for Busy People.

5. I suddenly feel much busier than I did before.

6. When I was about eight years old I began making a picture book about a priest who did not believe in God.

7. I spelt the title wrong.

8. The picture book was never finished. (Technically this is about the picture book, but I feel it is also about the problems I used to have in regard to finishing my stories.)

9. Actually, I still have that problem to some extent.

10. I’m not sure how to end this …


Now for ten nominees … or I think I’ll just go with five, ten seems like such a lot.

–          widdershinsfirst.com (good thoughts)

–          peasandcougars.com (hilarious drawings)

–          gingerfightback.com (Better a redhead than a deadhead)

–          yourmomislike.wordpress.com (science is fun!)

–          dumbfunnery.com (funny postcards)

I hope you’ll enjoy them all or at least some of them as much as I have 🙂

Thank you for reading!

The Versatile Blogger Award

The 23rd of December I received an early Christmas present from Scriptor Obscura: A nomination for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Thank you Scriptor Obscura. 1,000,000 times thank you. I am so happy that you liked my blog enough to give me this award. It is very encouraging to receive your kind support. Also, thank you very much for reading my blog. I hope you will enjoy reading it in the future as well.

And now,

The rules:

1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass this award along to however many or few blogs you would like. This way the award is more meaningful, rather than just becoming an endless bloggy chain letter that eventually every single blog in the whole world will have, and some will regard as simply nothing more than spam.

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Hmm… 7 things seem like a lot. How about I write 3? Then perhaps I will not bore you to death before you reach the good part of the post: the new nominees.

1. I once began to teach myself ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Hieroglyphs typical of the Graeco-Roman period
I got as far as being able to read names, dates and a few small typical expressions (for example the equivalent of ‘rest in peace’) before other things got in the way. Now I’ve forgotten most of it again.

2. When I was very young, I once saw a picture of my father from when he was about twenty years old. When my mother asked who I thought it was, I answered:

‘My big sister. With a beard.’

3. I began training taekwondo when I was ten years old.
I stopped when I was 18, but somehow I have kept quite a lot of the muscle.
And now to the good part.

I agree very much with point 3 in the rules. So in an attempt to preserve as much meaning as possible for this award, I have chosen to only nominate two bloggers.
(I wanted to nominate three at first, but then I found out that the third blogger, I wanted to nominate, had already received this award.)

Here it comes.


The two bloggers I want to nominate for the Versatile Blogger Award




Spell-sword, for his stories.


Beverly Penn
, for her well chosen quotes and recommendations for reading.

PS. The third person I wanted to nominate was Novel Girl, for her writing tips. But as mentioned before, she has already received this award.
