It's Awards Season - Oscars, Liebsters, and Homies and More

February 28, 2012

Did you watch the Oscars on Sunday? I did. I don't have cable, and after some frustration searching for a feed online I discovered that if I placed my antenna in the middle of my coffee table, and didn't move an inch from one spot on my couch I got perfect over-air reception. Unfortunately I don't think my efforts were worth the trouble - the show itself was a bit of a bore. There were a couple of redeeming moments, namely Christopher Plummer winning his first Oscar for his role in The Beginners (excellent movie BTW), and sporting his Order of Canada lapel pin while doing it!

There was of course the Oscar fashion, but I won't really bore you with that (as I'm sure you've already seen all you really care to see about it) except this one picture of Michelle Williams:

I love Michelle Williams' style, but the reason this picture caught my attention isn't the dress, although it's gorgeous, it's the haircut. You see, back a few years ago I had a similar style:

Sept 2009 - the day I chopped off all my hair for donation. should I cut my hair again?

I'm thinking about cutting it short again as my hair unfortunately now looks a bit more like this:

Okay, enough about that. You may recall I recently posted about my being awarded a Leibster Blog award by Janet at 'Housefour'. Well since then I have been bestowed with a few more:

April at 'Money Pit Love' gave me the 7x7 award which asks for 7 facts about me, and I need to pass the award on to 7 other bloggers.

Michelle at 'The 236' gave me the Liebster award which as you know needs 5 facts and 5 nominations. Jo at 'As Is' also gave me the Liebster a few days later.

April at 'Money Pit Love' also 'Tagged me' which means I should give you 11 random facts about myself and 'tag' 11 other blogs.

As you can see, I've run into a wee problem. Each of these blogger bestowed awards asks that you nominate some other blogs and share some facts about yourself. If you've been keeping score that means in total I should nominate 28 blogs and share 28 random facts about yours truly with you. The wee problem I'm experiencing is I don't know of enough smaller blogs to nominate, and coming up with that many random facts is incredibly hard without resorting to what I had for breakfast this morning (tea and a toasted bagel with cream cheese).

I didn't want to ignore these wonderful bloggers so please go check out their blogs even though I won't be able to fulfill the requirements of these lovely awards. They are all talented ladies.

While you're off checking out new blogs be sure to check out some of the blogs that have been nominated so far for this years 'Homies' on Apartment Therapy. Quite a few of the blogs I read everyday have been nominated already and I look forward to discovering some more.

And to close - here are 5 random facts about me:
  • I had a goldfish named 'Chubby' as a child. Three guesses as to why ;)
  • I am the first of two children
  • It's my birthday next week :(
  • I am a MAJOR chocoholic
  • I speak French although it's a bit rusty from disuse. Would anyone like to send me to Paris so I can brush up?
