More Bloggy Love!

22 Feb

I’m going to come right out and apologize to Teri over at the The Narcissist’s Blog. I’ve received a few blog awards from her in the last month, and I’m just now getting around to accepting them. Teri, I hope you know that I sincerely appreciate all of the love you’ve been throwing my blog’s way!

Back in January she nominated me for the the Versatile Blogger Award as well as the 7X7 Link Award. I’ve previously received the Versatile Blogger Award so I won’t be doing a full-fledged acceptance post for that one. Please visit this post as well as this one to see which bloggers I think are muy fantastico.

Now on to the 7×7 Link Award…

Rules to this award:

  1. Thank the person who gave it to you.
  2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Share 7 of your worthy posts under the following headers: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful, Most Popular, Most Controversial, Most Surprisingly Successful, Most Underrated, and Most Pride Worthy.
  4. Nominate seven other bloggers and notify them.

So here goes….

#1: Giving Thanks

Teri, thank you so much for passing this award along to me. It’s nice enough to win something, but when you receive it from someone whose posts you look forward to, it makes it that much more awesome. You rock the blogosphere!

#2: 7 Random Things

  1. I’m a human garbage disposal and will eat just about anything, but I can’t stomach breaded meats. I don’t care how “unbelievably delicious” your family recipe is, I will not eat shady meat concealed in a crumbly coating. Pork chops are equally disgusting.
  2. I read magazines from the back to the front. I used to do this with newspapers…when they still existed.
  3. I detest the sound of people licking envelopes. Something about the way the paper crinkles drives me absolutely nuts.
  4. I flush all public toilets with my foot. The moment I can no longer get my leg that high is the moment I start wearing adult diapers.
  5. I clean up my hotel room before I checkout. I wipe down the counters, put all of the used towels in a pile, and make sure the bed looks somewhat neat. Additionally, I always leave a tip.
  6. I absolutely cannot wear white without spilling on myself. I’m not the most pristine person to begin with, but ink, coffee, dirt, paint, food and makeup always find their way to me when I’m wearing white.
  7. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. A writer is obviously at the top of my list, but I think I’d also like to try my hand at being an echocardiographer or renewable energy engineer or graphic designer or coffee shop owner….the list could go on and on.

#3: Post Shout-Outs

Most Beautiful Piece: Love Sucks? (Okay, I didn’t write it on this blog, but I did write it!)

Most Helpful: How-to: Not Suck as a Person

Most Popular: Sippin’ on Some Tonic

Most Controversial: Dear John

Most Surprisingly Successful: You’ve Got Mail

Most Underrated: I’m not putting anything here. If my audience didn’t like it, that doesn’t mean it was underrated. It means it wasn’t as good as I thought it was.

Most Pride Worthy: Happy Mirthday! (Not my greatest post, but I’m proud that I reflected on my age with hope and grace.)

#4: Nominations!!

Viciously Sweet

Just Rambling

Misadventures in Cleveland Dating

Thanks again, Teri! And thanks to all of you who read, comment and share my posts. It really does mean so much to me.

    Woohoooo! Congrats Jen 🙂 *dances*

    I’m the same with you on well most of the facts haha. I won’t ramble toooooo much, so I picked the following:

    1. ‘not sure what I want to be when I grow up’. – You know that’s the beauty with writing and drawing, you can always pretend to be something else by scribbling and doodling. Matching outfits and wigs do help as well though…
    2. Licking envelopes…I switched to self-adhesives ones!! So much easier…however whenever people lick their envelopes I want to hide. I can’t stand people eating apples in the subway…for some reason the sound is amplified with like A LOT.
    3. I clean the hotel rooms as well!! I can’t leave it messy. I have the same when I go shopping (that is if I manage not to blank out), I always fold whatever I grab from the shelf. Having worked in a few stores made me realize what a pain in the ass it is to stay longer after closing because customers think they can just throw around with clothes. Rude.

    Loved this one, well I love all your posts ^_^

    Congratulations and thank you! #4 is hilarious.

    My foot slipped once and almost dipped into the toilet. That was a spine tingling moment as I was wearing ballet flats.

    • Jen and Tonic 02/23/2012 at 3:33 pm #

      OH MAN. If my foot slipped into a toilet I think I’d have to ask a doctor to amputate it.

  3. Main Street Musings Blog 02/23/2012 at 5:00 am #

    Congrats–Well deserved!

  4. Just Rambling 02/23/2012 at 12:07 am #

    Aaah!!! YES!!! Thank you Jen! Yay!

    Okay, so…the flush thing is too funny, that definitely made me laugh! I may need to try that too, I just never thought of doing that!

    • Jen and Tonic 02/23/2012 at 8:35 am #

      You are so welcome! I can’t wait to see what your random facts are 🙂

      Oh, I HIGHLY recommend flushing with your foot. Not only does it keep your hands clean, but it’s a great way to stay limber!

  5. Summer 02/22/2012 at 5:07 pm #

    Thank you for the nomination! Like you, it might take me a bit to getting back to posting this on my blog, but I definitely will! I’m with you on the wearing white – I can’t wear anything white ever. If I dare try, it’s ruined within minutes.

    • Jen and Tonic 02/23/2012 at 8:36 am #

      It took me about a month to do this, so it would be a bit hypocritical of me to say, “GET ON THIS RIGHT NOW!”

      I’m so glad someone feels my white clothes pain!

  6. Viciously Sweet 02/22/2012 at 3:09 pm #

    I agree with you on all of your 7 random things. All of them I say! I also dislike when people lick their fingers to turn pages. Pages are not that hard to turn!
    Also I know the world is really full of these award thangs… but this one was made by Teri & Me! And you just have to have it!

    • Jen and Tonic 02/23/2012 at 8:37 am #

      I used to have a boss who would lick her finger, and then turn pages in MY binder of paperwork. Um, WHY?

      Ah! Thanks so much for the award!! I definitely deserve that one 😀

  7. trjensen 02/22/2012 at 2:51 pm #

    Congrats my dear! FYI, I would love to buy you a drink sometime! We are neighbors ya’ know?

    • Jen and Tonic 02/23/2012 at 10:43 am #

      YES! We are neighbors. How cool is that? I wish all of my internet bloggy friends were our neighbors. We will definitely have to imbibe together sometime.

  8. Jen 02/22/2012 at 2:27 pm #

    Girl? Say What???? Oh no you didn’t! My first ever nomination, for ANYthing. Except for maybe the employee who makes the best morning tea. You rock, thank you thank you! 🙂

    • Jen 02/22/2012 at 4:10 pm #

      Also…this may sound incredibly naive. But this seriously is my first nomination. Do I sit back and wait for someone to tell me kindly but firmly that I’m not the winner? Or does recieving the nomination mean I’ve already won? Confusing…but that’s me.

      • Jen and Tonic 02/23/2012 at 8:41 am #

        No, no need to wait on pins and needles until someone waves their internet wand and bestows upon you this award. You’ve GOT it! I think the term “nomination” is a little bit misleading.

        This is going to be the first of MANY awards for you, I guarantee it.

        • Jen 02/23/2012 at 3:12 pm #

          So you’re the one waving a wand? Fantastic!! Thank you again. I shall start working on my acceptance speech… 🙂

  9. Lisa Summerlin 02/22/2012 at 1:51 pm #

    Congrats on the award!

    What…? No “Too Legit…”?

    Anyway, #(1) Hits painfully close to home 😉 #(7) Yes, as a matter of fact, I HAVE done the ECG thing… and always, always, ALWAYS #(4)!!!!!!!!

    • Jen and Tonic 02/23/2012 at 8:43 am #

      No, not “Too Legit”….I decided to wipe the slate clean after I left the other site. It’s actually one of my least-viewed articles on this blog. As I said before, it was always a fluke that it did so well back in the day.

      Oh, and don’t worry about #1. I still love you to death even though you hide your meat. Wait….that sounded wrong.
