Well, not one like from the Oscars anyway… haha, but certainly I must explain, since it is my nature to always do so.
Last week I was awarded with the Versatile Blogger Award by dear friend Alannah. I was really surprised since I never expect to be given any awards. It’s always something that seems kind of dreamy, fantastic… an exchange of this nature, between friends or just strangers, is always something very gratifying, and I must thank my friend from the bottom of my heart for such a nice gesture.
Alannah is a writer, and if she had not been awarded with this same award by another blogger I would have given it to her myself… (great, we can just give it back and forth to each other) Because I believe she is a true versatile blogger, and her posts –not always about vampires- are full of her charm and wit. You can check out her Blog here.
As for the rules of this game, I have to nominate 7 bloggers and link my favorite post from the author. I have to confess, I do not know 7 bloggers that I could possibly nominate. I will just nominate as many as I can… (hey! I don’t make the rules… not my fault I haven’t made friends with a bunch of bloggers 😛 )
Not in any kind of order:
–TheSmellOfTeenSpirit. This blog was made by a group of artists who are trying to produce the play The Smell Of Teen Spirit, a play based on Kurt Cobain’s death. My good friend Carolina Gonzalez Lopez- Henriquez, is part of the production team and although she is not what would actually fall under “most versatile blogger” since her blog just happens to be about this one thing… I have to say I admire her as a person, and love what she is trying to do with this play. Together with a team of other artists, she is working hard in order to bring culture to Miami; for teens, for our generation, for the younger generation… I think Carolina deserves my award. If not versatile, then anything! I love her blog, her purpose, I wish her the best!!
–jasmandii’s Photography. Johan Sanchez (also one of my contributors to this blog) is a photographer who just started in the business. He is very talented, and brings some extra flavor to his posts with a little bit of a story behind every shot experienced.
–Everything I Need To Know, I Learned From Anime. Falahime -as I don’t know her real name. I’m sorry for that, but I just don’t go around asking people their names… maybe I should- has a very interesting blog. She compares her lives experiences with anime (Japanese animation) and… well, blogs about it. I have enjoyed reading her blog many times during the past year. Always a pleasure to find myself at a corner where I can be in touch with my nerdy side.
–Las 1000 grullas. Even when it started just as a small wish of 1000 paper cranes, this blog has become more than just one wish. It is now something that puts hope in the heart of people all around the world. I admire the lady behind this blog, because when there is nothing that you can physically do for the ones you love, the only thing left is to wish and hope. The thoughts, the effort put into these thoughts, all of these requires a lot of energy and it wears you down. For Makiko (the author of this blog) the warm words of encouragement from others around the net, is what has kept her going with this beautiful gesture of love for her family and her people in Japan.
I have a post that explains in better details what the 1000 paper cranes are about, if you are curious you can read it here.
–Soul Dipper. In the short time that I have met Amy, I really like what she has said in her posts. Especially her post “Simplicity-A Friend” on philosopher Eric Hoffer. I love to find rare gems, and this one is definitely one.
Now here comes the part I really don’t like much… the part I get to tell you 7 facts about me (also part of the rules… who made this up???)
I’m really bad at talking about myself… when forced… Okay, lets see, hmm:
When I was little my friends named me “fly eater” (does not make much sence in English, I know) because I would get lost in thought and my mouth would drop open… there, very flattering don’t you think?? Still happens when I watch TV… sometimes…
I have four cats, if I could live in a house with a big yard I would have more… I love cats and I don’t care to be called cat lady.
I’m terrible at remembering things about my past that involve other people (I’m sort of narcissistic that way… it’s all about me) but I’m very good at remembering movie lines… know the whole script to You’ve Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally… okay that’s it. No but that’s pretty good considering my memory needs “tweaking”.
I love chocolate ice cream, and chocolate fudge, also chocolate pudding; but dislike any kind of chocolate cookies and chocolate cake… hmm, weird.
I have never been outside of the US but to go back to my Country. Funny, because it seems as I always talk about cultures, and arts, and things that would require some traveling at some point… definitely something on my list of things to do.
Never been to a music concert, like one of those where you can scream, and jump, and scream some more. I think of it this way: is like virginity, at this point in my life, I’m sort of saving my first rock concert experience for a very special band… yes! LUNA SEA 🙂
Really, really scared of elevators when I have to ride by myself 0.0 … I have used the stairs from the 10th floor when confronted with “the elevator alone” situation, no kidding… 12th floor? 20th? not a problem.
