Apparently, NurZeug still finds me inspiring despite the fact that the last thing I posted (over a week ago!) was a rant about how evil my cat is.
(Hey, I am working on something about zombies and something else about how the written word preserves us. For now, though… courage.)
So, in order to accept this award, I must commit to the following:
1. Display the award logo on your blog. (Done!)
2. Link back to the person who nominated you. (Done!)
3. State 7 things about yourself. (Ugh… all I do on here is talk about myself…)
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them. (Gladly!)
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements. (…Ok.)
Seven Things About Me:
1) At least 12 of my medieval weapons have names and backstories.
2) I met my wife and went to college because of Final Fantasy VII.
3) I am (at times) the reincarnation of Geoffrey Chaucer.
4) The greatest personal advancement I’ve made in my last five years of teaching was to “Sparta-kick” a laptop, an unchecked moment, to be sure, resulting in a suspension during which time I wrote the majority of Manifesto. Hmm…
5) I’m planning on being the only straight guy at a Supernatural convention some time in the near future. Love that show. Makes me want to kill some evil sons of bitches and raise a little hell.
6) Though some of my peers consider me a “literature snob”, I like Mo Willems. My kids are getting to be too big now, but I almost bought Goldielocks and the Three Dinosaurs for myself whilst Christmas shopping on Monday.
7) And… speaking of buying books (and awful transitions!), TZPP is featuring me in an anthology, RealLies, due to be released in February. Amazon is already taking preorders for the print version, and I’ll be sure to post more information as I receive it from the publisher.
Now, to nominate 15 others:
2) Felix Pearce
12) Knite Writes
14) Emma McCoy
And a special thanks to everyone on WordPress who has liked, followed, or just stopped by to give me a piece of your mind. This community has really taken me in these past two months. Now that my students have given their last performance of The Importance of Being Earnest and my directing duties are done for the semester (though Oscar Wilde still has me saying “peculiarly” and “particularly”), I’ve just taken the time to go through the profiles of everyone who has been here since I was Freshly Pressed. It’s nice to know that I’m not writing in a vacuum because some people in the world still read.
