This has been a very good week for Ein Sprachblog! Last Wednesday I received a nomination for the Liebster Blog Award and yesterday I was lucky enough to be chosen as a nominee for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by the very kind (and well-travelled) Alli from The Vintage Postcard: Go raibh céad míle maith agat, Alli! (that’s Irish for “a thousand thank you’s, Alli!”
So there are just four simple rules that accompany the SotWBA and these are as follows:
1- Answer these 10 questions (don’t worry, they’re not too tricky!)
2- Nominate 10 blogs that you find a joy to read (girls only!)
3- Give links to these blogs and let the nominees know that you have put them forward for the award
4- Include the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award logo in your post
All very straightforward! So here’s the brief Q&A session:
1.Who is a woman from history that you respect?
In school I did a history project on Amelia Earhart. She was so brave and ambitious- I respect that.
2. Do you like your handwriting?
I think I do. My handwriting changes, so sometimes I like it more than others.
3. What book are you reading right now?
Does a Sudoku puzzle book count?
4. Are you ticklish?
I think I kneed my boyfriend in the face once because he tickled me. Involuntarily, of course.
5. What have been your favourite methods of transport?
Walking if it’s dry outside. Otherwise the car.
6. What is your favourite breakfast?
Plain ol’ cereal. Or ‘Roses’ chocolates on Christmas morning!
7. Do you ever sing in the shower?
I’ve been known to belt out a song or two.
8. Are you wearing socks right now?
Yes. They have owls on them.
9. If you could be given any gift, what would it be?
A ring/necklace from Tiffany’s. Or a new laptop, as my old one is kaputt. I’m a bit greedy with my gifts, aren’t I?
10. When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass it?
Talking to my mum/my boyfriend or maybe watching an episode of How I Met Your Mother/ The Big Bang Theory. I love them both!
