Awards Time!

Thanks to Kals at At Pemberley and Whitney at She is Too Fond of Books for presenting me with my very first awards - the Beautiful Blogger Award and the Honest Scrap Award.

For the Honest Scrap award, I need to list ten facts about myself and pass it on to ten other bloggers. So, here I go:
  • I am a bit of a Britophile - I love British books, TV and actors (Richard Armitage, JLM, RP-J and Jason Isaacs in particular).
  • I practice yoga.
  • I enjoy classical music, particulary Bach.
  • In real life, I am a statistician and enjoy the company of numbers.
  • Anton Chigurh from "No Country for Old Men" is my favorite cinematic villain. He barely edges out Darth Vader.
  • My pet peeve is drivers who don't use their turn signals.
  • I enjoy long road trips very much.
  • I love learning languages.
  • I once ran into Shaquille O'Neal at the library, and yes, he is big!
  • My favorite characters from The Simpsons are Dr. Nick Rivera and the Comic Book Guy.

I would like to pass these two awards to the following ten bloggers:

Emidy at Une Parole

Margot Kinberg at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist

Carin at Caroline Bookbinder

Morgan at Smitten with Books

Missy at Missy's Book Nook

Lea Kelley at What Miss Kelley is Reading

Chris and Jess at Park Benches and Bookends

Sumana at Books with a Cup of Coffee

Nancy O at 2010: The Year in Books

Laura at Tattooed Books


  1. Thank you so much for these awards! How very kind of you!

    I enjoy learning new things about people, so it was interesting to learn more about you. One of the things you mention is that you're a statisticion. I have a good friend who's a statistician and has helped me on a number of research projects. I admire those who can make numbers give us answers. I'm not fond of drivers who don't use turn signals, either!

  2. I totally love Brit books and actors too! In fact, one of my shelves on Goodreads is called 'My British Weaknesses' :D

    Congrats again, on the awards and I'm looking forward to checking the blogs you've mentioned here!

  3. Thank you for the awards! We actually have a lot in common: yoga, being an Anglophile, frustration at no turn signals, and books!

  4. You actually ran into him at the library? Wow! Congratulations on the two awards and thank you so much for passing them along to me.

  5. Hi, thanks for the awards. Honestly you wait for one then two come along at once:)

  6. Thank you so much! I'm excited to pass this award on.

  7. Thank you so much for thinking of me! And congratulations on receiving the awards! I just received the Beautiful Blogger award last week, and the Honest Scrap not too long ago.
    My pet peeve is the same as it too much trouble to use turn signals????

  8. Thank you so much! I'm just getting caught up from vacation, but I'm always excited to have someone read my blog, much less like it!

  9. Thanks for the award, I will be postingit in my blog later today.. and "The Simpsons" family is a big fan of it..
