Im not a book nerd, after all!

on December 3, 2009


OK, so I have been awarded a gorgeous blogger award, how fabulous is that?! And its because I am not a book nerd… I like that. So, what I have to do, is share 6 things about me that you don’t know and tag 6 other gorgeous bloggers. So, without further ado, I bring you: 6 things.

1)  I am afraid of bugs, moths, flying insects, mice and creepy crawlys. Everytime one is in our house that needs to be removed, I have a particular voice that I use, in order to get The Man to remove them. He is the official Bug Remover as he does it with the greatest of care.

2)  I find it quite difficult to open up to people and share. And since having a baby, my non baby friends have made a rather sad exit from my life and sometimes,I miss having a close girlfriend to talk to about arb things inside my head.(Thank goodness for sisters!)

3)  Reading is my most perfect form of escapism.

4) I dont watch the news as I find it too depressing and I can be quite ignorant on world matters as a result. (Luckily for me, The Man is not ignorant on world matters so I do find out about them).

5)  I am a huge believer in the type of energy you send out into the world and that like attracts like, that one is responsible for ones own happiness and if you wait for someone else to do it for you, it will never get done.

6)  I would love to be an artist with drawing and painting and know that if I actually just took the time to do it, I would do it well.

And that’s all folks! A little bit of inside info into the mind of “imsonotablogger‘.

As for the tagging, I’m afraid, I would have tagged Shayne, Clive and Lynette, so that leaves me with three bloggers to award and those go to.. da da da, da da da…

Dolce Belezza – as she was one of the first book blogs I discovered and really enjoy her take on books, reading and life.

Justin – I love this blog as it brings a smile to my face every time I read it and a sort of hop skip and jump to my insides.

amillionmilesfromnormal – this blog is not for the faint hearted! But the content is highly amusing and interesting. (And Paige raised at least 50 books for our book raiser. You gotta love her!)

And for now, the silence has been broken but it may still be a bit quiet until next week, as I am in study mode for an exam I will be writing next week. Once that is done with, life should return to a semblance of normality, and I will be back in the land of blog bringing you all sorts of Christmas Wish books… until then, take care you all!

    well done for collecting all those books, you’ve made a huge difference in all those kids lives.

    let me know if you want to send another hundred any time soon and i’ll do my best to get hold of another 50.

    and thanks so much for the link love.

    good luck for your exams! go kick some ass, then come back and read some books.

    i’m half way through ‘The Secret History’ by Donna Tart. has anyone else here read it? it started off slow but now i’m getting into it.

    and then have ‘the six suspects’ lined up by vikus swarup, which i’m looking forward to.

    I was so disappointed by ‘6 suspects’! I don’t want to ruin it for you at all – I think everyone should form their own opinions about books – but it’s as if he was just trying too hard. I suppose if your 1st novel is such a phenomenal success (as ‘Q & A’ was) it must be incredibly difficult to come up with a 2nd to top it, but this did not do it for me at all. ‘Q & A’ charmed me off my feet; ‘Six suspects’ made me want to lie down & take a nap…

  3. I managed to read about 5 pages of ‘6 suspects’, couldnt get into it at all. Pity really as I enjoyed his first one.
