What are we talking about today?

Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.

Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.
Monday: Running.
Tuesday: Books.

Here's another first in the world of Su:

I can safely say I've never been called stylish before! Many thanks to Lisa @ First Draft and to Margo Kelly for passing this award on to me!

This one comes with rules, as so many do: Another seven things about myself. I would be tempted to say this whole blog is about myself and leave it at that, but this is my journal day, so here goes:

1. I'm 32 years old and I only just read Anne of Green Gables.

2. And Pride and Prejudice.

3. Ick alert: Once upon a very bored time, one of my friends stuck her pinky up her nose to see how far it would go, which prompted a contest. I won.

4. If I had it my way, all my lecturers at uni would be women.

5. I only leave my umbrella at home when it's raining.

6. Millet is my favourite grain ever.

7. If I had my wedding to do all over again, I would elope.

That should be sufficiently off-the-wall to keep everyone happy! (Or grossed out, as the case may be.)

I'm meant to pass this on to other bloggers, but every time I went to get a link to pass it on, it turned out that the would-be recipient already had an award this week. And really, I think all my readers are stylish! So you may take it with you if you like, or if you know a stylish blogger who needs an award.

What's your favourite grain?

Well done on the award. My favourite grain? Do you know I wouldn't like to say. I'm not too keen on millet though, even just saying the word makes me think of bird seed.

I can't believe it's the first time you've won the Stylish Award! Congratulations!

Hey Su, congrats on your award :)


Faith said...

Whoa. The pinky contest. So... do you have stats? How long is your pinky?! Fascinating.


Su said...

@Petty: Hmmm. I hadn't thought of that.

@JE: All that watching "What Not to Blog" has paid off. ;) Thanks!

@Rach: Thank you! Looking forward to the new crusade!

@Faith: Hee hee. My pinky is normal length, I think. My nose may be longer than most. I'm definitely not giving a repeat performance just for a pic. ;)

I think I've read Anne of Green Gables (all of the series) at least 10 times - the last time being right around when I was 32, oddly enough...

I've never read Pride and Prejudice and really have no desire to. I don't know why. Was it good?

Su said...

I haven't finished it yet... but I am mostly enjoying it. Although my initial impression is that rich people in the 1800s were jerks.

Congratulations on your award!

Su said...

Thank you!

The pinky thing? Ewh. But I probably would had done it on a dare. Favorite grain would have to be rice, although I've never really thought about it. I'm 45 and just now reading Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. Those Russian novelists are wordy! Congrats on your award.

Su said...

Yep, I agree that it's icky. But at the time it was funny! I haven't read Anna Karenina, although I think it's on my to-read list.
