Award-Winning and Such

I blushing from head to little bookworm tail! My new friend Read the Book has bestowed the Stylish Blogger Award on me, and I’m tickled pink. Er, green. (Thanks, my dear.)

My best friend once told me that “there are two things you always accept: breath mints and compliments.” With that in mind, I won’t be bashful and will post the supernice things Ms. Read said:

Simple Little Bookworm--Amy's blog is my most recently discovered treasure, and I love it! She writes about a wide variety of books and is highly entertaining while she does it.”

Aw, man…Now I’m going to have to live up to that! (I think I’m up for the challenge.) But wait! There’s more!

Part of the deal is that I have to share some interesting tidbits about myself. How many, you ask? I think I’ll take my cue from one of my favorite movies: “Three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three.”

1. I guess the first should be that my comedy trifecta is Mel Brooks, Monty Python, and Woody Allen.

2. My three favorite things my mom cooks are beef bourguignon, barbeque brisket, and onion oven-roasted potatoes. At home, I am definitely a meat and potatoes gal. (Out, I’m more Thai/Indian/adventurous.)

3. I’m wrapping up with my three favorite birthday presents. For my surprise sixteenth birthday, my friends got me waterproof crayons because I think best in the shower. On my twenty-first, my parents thought I was responsible enough for a crème brûlée-sized blowtorch. The next birthday, number twenty-two, I bought my-interior-design-loving-self a present: my nightstand.

Disclaimer: That is not my actual nightstand, though mine is indeed identical to it. (The key distinction is that there are not enough books on it.) A “How to Build a Better Bedroom for Books” featuring my nightstand is in the works.

And there you have it! Three times three, which equals my lucky number. (I guess that fun fact makes ten.)

Thanks for listening, and we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled program tomorrow. I’m off to pay it forward!


  1. Congratulations! I've never actually heard of water-proof crayons before. LOL. On a different note, I'm really looking forward to your How to Build a Better Bedroom for Books. Sounds interesting. :)

  2. How to Build a Better Bedroom sounds extremely interesting! And I'm glad you enjoyed the award ;)

  3. Thanks, you two! I'm waiting for the right light to take some pictures. :)
