Oops! Sorry and I Forgot!

Awards I haven’t acknowledged and feel really bad about!

The first time I received a blogging award I was so excited and quickly set out to follow the rules and respond – it took me the whole day!

Now, they are easier to respond to but I have a tendency to forget to do it…and I apologise to those who bestowed these awards upon me:

http://foodisthebestshitever.wordpress.com/ and http://feedthepiglet.wordpress.com/

I don’t do it deliberately but I really do forget and when I do remember it’s at really odd times, like at 3am or in the middle of a class I’m teaching. Something will trigger my memory and I usually let out a little gasp and think “Oh Shit!” and then as quickly as it entered my head, it’s gone again…the price you pay for having a great time in the late 80’s and early 90’s when the pub/music scene was awesome in Melbourne!

So, I’m going to respond to them together in this post…here goes:

Thank you to the above food bloggers – seriously love reading your stuff – entertaining, great food and photos and I do look forward to your posts. I may go off the radar for a while, but that’s usually just with the writing and posting. I still read your posts and enjoy them immensely – you rock my foodblogging world!

Firstly, I received the ‘food is the best thing ever’ award from  http://foodisthebestshitever.wordpress.com/, next came the ‘Blog of 2012 award’ from http://feedthepiglet.wordpress.com/ and finally yesterday I received another ward from those cooky characters at ‘foodisthebestshitever’ and that was a very strange looking award indeed: the “Illuminating blogger award” huh! who comes up with these award titles?

Anyway cheers and I will provide a few random things about myself: I love blue Cheese, I own more than 50 pairs of boots plus I don’t know how many pairs of shoes, I would like to live in Europe but I would miss the food stores here and I don’t like sub zero temperatures, I’m addicted to Vampire Porn (aka True Blood series), and finally, I am totally prepared for the zombie apocalypse!

Next time I will get around to nominating 5 bloggers for awards but you know that the two of you will be receiving them so no great surprise there!

great shit right here!

great shit right here!

This award brought tears to my eyes!
This award brought tears to my eyes!

...and this was just plain weird but love it anyway!

  1. I’m sure you have heaps of awards to accept as yours is a truly great blog with wonderful pictures and I always look forward to reading it. I know what you mean though – they are great to receive but you need a good chunk of time to respond to them. I think I really did get a little teary when I received yours – it was really lovely. Cheers 🙂

  2. Not bragging here but I still have a list of awards to accept from way last year. Like you I do intend to pass them on…sighs – sometime. It’s just not on the agenda right now. Thanks for the really nice shout out. And congrats for all as you truly deserve them.

What do you think? Thanks for visiting :)
