Austin is beside himself with joy because he’s been awarded the Versatile Blogger award not once, not twice, but three times :)
Trust me he’s ecstatic!
It’s a bit like the Oscars. First time you are overjoyed and don’t know what to say. Second time you are overcome and don’t know what to say and so overreact and do a Kate Winslet for .. like … ever. The third time you are overwhelmed and don’t know what to say so overcompensate by pretending you're far too busy to attend poxy award ceremonies, which is a bit of an overkill. One has a tendency to overdo!
“Austin, where are you?”
He’s over there!
But not over-impressed!
I’m afraid that’s as good as it gets! He’s having a bit of a day.
He’s not forgiven me for putting “Hug Me” on his Valentine’s card ;)
We will overlook!
The first Versatile Award we’ve already covered, but I just want to give a shout out and big thanks to Dominique from 4 Walls and a View and the guys over at The Tonks Tail for numbers two and three. Dominique is a writer and like me has M.E. She writes very eloquently about many things including how to live with chronic illness. Her positivity is a real encouragement. The Tonks guys make me laugh, especially their comments to each other and on my blog. Very astute! :) If you haven’t already, please go visit these two blogs.
We have also been tagged. I know this has been doing the rounds of the blogosphere and we’ve been ducking and diving for a while now, but hey! We’ve finally been hit. Ouch! I thank you Haopee. Austin thanks you:
Moving on. We have now got to answer some questions about ourselves. First Austin (who has been bribed with a week without cuddles) and then me:
Austin: I have no need to describe myself
Me: ironic, laconic, sardonic, obscuronic, anachronic, oxymoronic, CATatonic
2. What keeps you up at night?
Austin: My human
Me: My cat
3. Who would you like to be?
4. What are you wearing right now?
Austin: A scowl
Me: A bemused expression
5. What scares you?
Austin: Loud humans
Me: Loud cats
6. The best and worst of blogging?
Austin: There’s a best? Darned pawparazzi!
Me: Best - Meeting lots of lovely people from the blogosphere. Worst - Not actually meeting all the lovely people from the blogosphere.
7. Last website you've visited?
Austin: I walked through a web site this morning at 6.05 a.m. The spider was none too happy :)))
Me: Google, to check how to spell paparazzi
8. One thing you'd change about yourself?
Austin: My human
Me: My cat ;)
9. Slankets or no?
Austin: Hahahaha! Only if it is Comfort™ infused!
Me: Isn’t that a typo?
10. Tell us something about the dog or person that tagged you:
Austin: Over to you …..
Me: Austin isn’t too keen on dogs so it’s up to me. Haopee lives somewhere over towards the east of the blogosphere I believe, and is an advocate for dogs of all shapes and sizes. She loves them and they obviously love her :) And she has a great sense of fun!!!!
Now we are supposed to pick a specified number of blogs/bloggers to tag and they must do the same thing. Hmmmm? Just going to pick some of the many blogs I like. If you’ve done it before, fine. If you don’t want to do it, fine!
