Holy smokes, this post is soooooo over due. A huge thank you to Elle of Wooksy for choosing me as one of the blogs to honor with the Versatile Blogger Award! Though I’m still working out the kinks of this blogging business (as well as the layout and template of my blog, if you hadn’t noticed), I’m very happy with what I’ve accomplished so far, and it makes me all gooey to be noticed for it. Elle is one of my good friends and I know without her help, Oktopus Ink wouldn’t be what it is today. Please please please, go check out her amazing blog, Wooksy! I demand it. If you don’t, attention-hungry octopi will spontaneously appear next to you and strangle you with an 8-legged hug of death.
Anyway, those who have received this awesome award have to do a bit of work to really earn it. They must:
1.) Thank and link back to the person that gave this award (Done, and thanks again, Elle!)
2.) Write 7 things about yourself.
3.) Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are epically awesome.
4.) Contact the bloggers you’ve picked to let them know about the award.
So, since I’ve already accomplished number 1, here is number 2!
1.) Tamora Pierce is my favorite author. My childhood would not be the same without her Tortall stories. Seriously, it wouldn't. Her books helped me through a difficult time when I was a teenager.
2.) My favorite animals/creatures are octopi and owls.
3.) I still play pokemon and have memorized the Poke’rap.
4.) I’m a Bones junkie. Not bones, as in skeletal remains, but Bones as in the TV show. Brennan and Booth are my all time favorite TV couple.
5.) I've watched Beauty and the Beast (on dvd) four times this week.
6.) I’ve taken comedy writing class as The Second City in Chicago.
7.) I’m currently working on my first YA fantasy novel.
Now that that’s finished, I can pass this lovely award onto some other well deserving bloggers. However, as of right now, I don’t follow a lot of blogs, and the ones I do follow are some bigger named bloggers who have already been given this award. So I’ve decided that the recipients of this award will be announced this weekend, after I've had a chance to look through each of the blogs I follow and make sure they haven't already been given this award.
Anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful week! If you haven't had a chance, be sure to mosey on over to Barnes & Nobel or Borders or something at some point. Quite a few books came out this Tuesday, including Elixir by Hillary Duff. Can you believe that Hillary Duff actually wrote a YA book? It kinda freaks me out. It seems like only yesterday that she was Lizzie Maguire...
