Two nights ago, I got a very nice surprise before going to bed. My mobile phone beeped and it was a new post in one of my favourite blogs: A Life Among the Pages, run by the lovely Rob Zimmermann. He had been awarded a Liebster Award. A very well-deserved award, since his blog is great and you can read about different things (although all related to the literary world). 

A great poet and an avid reader, Rob was kind enough as to mention my blog among the nominees to get this Award. I really thank you, and I am glad that my blog is liked by people :D 

The rules for this Liebster Award are the following ones:
  • Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
  • Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
  • Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
  • Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs with 200 followers or less.
  • Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.

So I have to nominee 5 people whose blog has less than 200 followers. Hmm, hard work, since almost all the bloggers I know have a lot of followers. Let me think and let's see if I can think of 5 right nominees for this Award. OK, here we go, and I hope these blogs get lots and lots of new followers from now on:
  • D.e.e.L, for his blog Deeliopunk.
  • Peter Germany, for his blog.
  • Darren Cockle, for his blog.
  • Alan McDermott, for his blog Jambalian.
  • Jess Sturman-Coombs, for her blog.

So this is all. I am happy for getting this kind of recognition from my fellow bloggers. And don't forget to check all these blogs, because they are really worth the effort of reading them.

Today I had a nice surprise. Awesome and gorgeous Goth twins Cat and Lynx nominated me for this award. If you are not following them in Twitter yet, you should, because, as I said, they are awesome. So hurry up and follow them (@clraven). 
The rules of the award state that I have to thank and name the person, or persons, nominating me. So thanks a lot, Cat and Lynx. You can find them in their great blog
Now for the following part of the award. I have to tell seven facts about myself: 
  1. I am lactose-free, but it seems that the only milk that hurts me is cow milk.
  2. I cannot stand the taste of pinapple, coconut, or raisins. They make me vomit.
  3. I cannot swim.
  4. I love making presents, but I feel a bit embarrassed when people give me presents. But that doesn't mean that I don't like getting presents LOL.
  5. Anytime I ask for an alcoholic beverage in a pub, they ask for my ID card.
  6. I hate horror films.
  7. My favourite fiction character is Tinker Bell. I carry all my pens, pencils, and markers in a Tinker Bell pencil case.

Now that you know a bit more about me, it is time for the following part of this award: nominating seven other beautiful blogs. So my nominees are:
