The wonderful, effortlessly effusively effervescent yinyin has been kind enough to nominate me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Seriously, go hang out in her little garden sometime and have some tea. There are wonderful adventures to be had, and you may be graced by the presence of the wonderful Meatbun.
Meanwhile, rules of the award process dictate the following as form of my acceptance:
1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself .
4. Nominate 5 other bloggers for this award and show their links.
5. Go to their pages and tell them.
So, seven things about me.
I’m a little bit of a comic book geek. Nothing Big Bang Theory level (although I pretty much get all the references) but probably enough to raise an eyebrow should I ever be drawn into a conversation about it.
I have three major battle scars. One is where I cut my finger and Mrs P came to my rescue, two is where the doctors had to cut my throat open to retrieve the metal contents of my bacon and egg breakfast, and three is on my knee just below my kneecap where I tripped up at nine years of age and concrete border of my grandfather’s garden gave me a close up view of what my leg bone looked like.
I used to call Mrs P my Little Snow Pea (she likes snow peas) but Mrs P is sticking for now.
I’m a ridiculously light sleeper. I now need the earplugs you see guys wearing on the Discovery and History channel when they test fire souped up or historical rifles, plus I drape a t-shirt over my head to keep any stay light from outside rousing me from slumber as well.
Peckish Sr’s family is predominantly Irish/Scottish, while Mama Peckish is a pretty varied mixture of Fijian, Chinese, Miscellaneous European, plus there are a few others I’m neglecting to mention. No wonder I enjoy fusion cuisine, I’m a fusion baby.
Mrs P and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. We do, however mark the day we became a couple, the day we became engaged, and of course the day we became husband and wife. We always do something special on those days.
I dislike dealing with Spiders. Before Mrs P I would have rated myself as being pretty close to Arachnophobic, but Mrs P is far worse, so I’ve had to learn to overcome instinct so I can be of some use when a spider freaks her out.
Now the fun part again. Let’s talk about some inspiring bloggers:
le pirate – Ok, I’ve nominated her before, but her photography and recipes are very inspiring, and in many instances modelled to help those of us who don’t feel like kitchen wizards to get a greater sense of culinary magic out of our home cooking adventures.
Cancer: My Journey Back to Health-Kicking & Screaming the Whole Damn Way – One of the very most special people I’ve met out here in the blogosphere. Even if she weren’t courageously sharing her experiences with cancer, she could make a totally engrossing blog from her biography (Hollywood adventures and all) and just her general thoughts on life (see her Syria post).
Today’s Dose of Sanity – She also does a food blog which has a few gems, but there are few things more inspiring to me than motherhood. This is an intimate look at those ups and downs.
Rants, Raves, and Rations – Speaking of things I find inherently inspiring, I have a lot of love for teachers. Takes a special person to be passionate about that profession. This blogger takes it to the next level and delivers recipes as lessons as well.
Healthy Kiwi – Great food, great photography with a view to helping you eat better when you need to combat yesterday’s indulgence. Plus she’s a Kiwi. Even if she’s not living here anymore, we won’t hold that against her.
