Madeline & Alberta are Lovely (And so am I!)

Warning: This post may contain an overuse of the word lovely and its variations.

See that? -pokes award- It was given to me by two (yes, two) lovely bloggers: Madeline at Capricious Existence and Alberta at alberta's sefuty chronicles. Isn't that just the loveliest thing?

And another thing that is just as lovely, is the fact that I have to do nothing to receive this award. See, see, see?

  1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
  2.  Pay it forward to fifteen other blogs you have newly discovered.
  3.  Contact those blog owners and let them know they've been chosen.
Okay, so I do have to do a few things... But! I don't have to list things about myself so henceforth this award requires less brain power! Now, I'm going to use some of that saved brain power to list fifteen (or you know, thirteen) lovely bloggers that deserve this award.

  2. Anna @ an illustrated writer

  1. Aww, thanks! :D I've had a few opportunities to steal this award when people have said "If you want it, take it!" but I never felt right about doing that. Someone had to SINGLE ME OUT, you see. and you did! :D So thanks :) I will get around to posting this sometime soonish! :)

  2. Wow, thanks so much Brooke! I'll repost this soon :) You really are lovely.

  3. I know what you mean, Trisha. I feel the exact same way.

    Why, thank you. ^^

  4. Thank you, Brooke,

    I am very honored that you thought of me.


  5. Congrats on your award! Lovely! ;o) And congrats to those you're passing them on to.

  6. Thank you so much Brooke!
    Whoa, wasn't expecting THAT!
    See, see?! You ARE lovely!:)

  7. I saw your comment on Charity Bradford's blog and that you are going to do a review of Ender's Game. I too read that book (a few month's back) and wanted to know if you caught all the allegory that Card wrote in the book. Bugger is a slang term for sodomite (in the UK) and basically it's a huge homophobic rant on how only genius children trained by the military will have a chance to put an end to the homosexuals that threaten to destroy the world. Being gay, I found the book extremely insulting.

  8. Oh wow! I didn't know that, at all. I can definitely see why you would be insulted. It puts everything in a different light. Do you think it was one of those things that were intentional or just something that people kind of assumed?

  9. Thanks for the award by the way.

    On Orson Scott Card, I'm going to leave it up to you to google him. He's extremely vocal about hating gays (again google). He's also extremely intelligent. I know he knew what he was writing. And I'm a firm believer that writers pen intent into their writing especially of the caliber of Card. Go read his wikipedia article.

  10. Marriage does only have one definition. But apparently his is the wrong one.

    Marriage is the forever joining of two people who love each other. That's it. The end.

  11. Thank you Brooke! I'm adding your link to my awards page.

    Hey Michael, I didn't know all that about Card either. Does it make you feel better to know that in the next 3 books Ender does everything he can to help the hive queen find a new planet to start all over? As an adult, he has great guilt and remorse for killing them and his mission becomes one of trying to fix his mistake. Hope it helps a little.

  12. I am so flattered! Thank you for thinking of me!

  13. I'm sure I commented but I can't seem to find it O.O

    Thanks Brooke! I think your blog is lovely too :)
