Kreativ Blog Award

Both Kaily Hart and Romy Sommer have nominated me for a Kreativ Blog award – thanks for the kudos guys! – so I’d better get on with it eh? I have to reveal 7 interesting things about me and pass it on to 7 other bloggers. Righto…

7 interesting things about me (well, at least semi-interesting):

1. I took singing lessons and entered competitions (wearing my Doc Martens) when I was in my 20s. Singing opera. Needless to say I don’t sing any more, except to my iPod and not opera. I actually still like opera but these days I’m a bit more alternative. πŸ˜‰

2. I am a gadget girl (surprise, surprise). Love my iPod, my iPhone, and my PC. I’m now after an ereader.

3. I play computer games. Not so much these days now I write, but I used to love playing The Sims and any fantasy adventure game. I also quite like playing Halo on the xBox (but only with my friends whom I can shoot).

4. I used to swim competitively in my teens. And I hated it (though I still love swimming for fun) which is why I quit.

5. I can ski moderately well. A fact that continues to surprise me whenever I put on a pair of skis as I’m useless with most sports!

6. I love reading Science Fiction. I have umpteen dozen beginnings for many SF stories but never finished any of them. Combining SF and romance would be the best. Sadly M&B have no SF Romance category.

7. I travelled quite a bit when I was overseas years ago. The most unusual place I went to was St Petersburg for two weeks. This may or may not be interesting but I don’t meet many Kiwis who have been to Russia.

Seven blogs to nominate (and I’m nominating people here who may not have had this award yet):

Lorraine Wilson
Rachel Johns
Maisey Yates
Joanne Cleary
Judy Jarvie
Suzanne Jones
Lacey Devlin

  1. Suzanne – cheers! I bet you’ve already had this one though. Yours is so good.

    Hetal – It does feel good! Must drop round yours more often.

    Kerrin – thanks! I’m incredibly flattered that people seem to find my witterings helpful.

  2. So now I have to go revealing 7 things about myself, Jackie? Lord save you all from the TMI. And thanks for the nom. πŸ™‚

  3. You beat me to it – I was going to email you this morning (my time) to let you know I’d nominated you. Congrats and keep up the good work!

  4. I just posted on Romy’s blog but have to say again–I love these interesting facts about people.

    So, an opera singing, skiing swimmer. So cool!

    And thanks for nominating me. I will get onto that this weekend πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks Jackie. Your posts are always thought provoking, even if it’s ‘yeah, I need more shoes too!’. I’m a bit of a gadget freak myself. Comes from being spawned from the IT industry, I guess. I have a laptop but I want a mini-computer I can take everywhere with me. I’d held off because that will be my present to myself when I get THE CALL!!!

  6. Joanne – yeah, it’s cool to see what other stuff people have got going on in their lives eh? Will have to check yours out when you do it.

    Kaily – Nice present! I’m not sure what I’ll get myself if (when!) I get the Call. I hope it won’t be a walking stick due to it taking 20 years. πŸ™‚

  7. as an aside, i still can’t get the word count widget to work. i so want one like everyone else does on their blog but it just won’t work for me! I’ve even emailed the creator and no help! Anyways, congrats again. I keep checking back in hopes you hear very soon about ‘The Call’ πŸ™‚
