“If I Win, My Goals are to Bring About World Peace & Find a Cure for Cancer…” (*falls down in a mess of high heels & sequins*)

July 25, 2008

Sorry I’ve not really checked in for a couple days, but summer classes have started up & I’ve been out & about quite a lot. Imagine my surprise when I got back from my jog this morning to find that I’ve been nominated for The Brillant Weblog Award by some extremely kind & lovely bloggers!

According to the blogs, what I’m supposed to do is this…

Post the award logo:

Link to the bloggers who nominated me:

***Yo Soy!

***Lisa from Show Me Vegan

***Sara from The Innocent Primate Vegan Blog

***Sal from Alien on Toast

Nominate Seven Other Bloggers (other than the nominators) & link to them:

This was hard because I read SO MANY blogs, have a million links in my blogroll, & suffer from crazy amounts of guilt at having to make choices! Plus, I’ve recently found some amazing blogs, but haven’t had a chance to read all the old posts. Gah! Please don’t take my choices personally. This is as awkward as it is flattering & fun!

Here are my nominees:

***Hannah from BitterSweet, because I can’t believe all she’s accomplished already & for her professional photography skizzles!

***Kittee at Cake Maker to the Stars for her humor, wit, & gross-out pictures of creepy-crawlies!

***Ricki at Diet, Dessert, & Dogs for her gajillions of recipes, which are all sugar-free, healthy & oh-so-delicious!

***Celine at have cake, will travel! for her gorgeous photos, hilarious commentary, & penchant for booze-filled goodies!

***Vaishali at holy cow! for her veganized Indian recipes & commitment to animal welfare, not to mention her crazy pictures of crispy & glossy foods that make me want to run to the kitchen!

***Crystal at Vegan Explosion for her innovative recipes. Just check out her tortellini!

***Emmie at Veg Bitch for her recipes, attitude, & ass-kicking feminist posts!

Now I’m off to complete the last step, letting the nominees know, so they can pass it along to their nominees!

I hope I haven’t screwed this up in any way. Let me know if I have!

    Hi Destiny,
    Thanks so much for the nomination–and congrats on your own award! I’m very honored. I’ll be a bit erratic with posts over the next week or two, but will defniitely pass this along when I get back to regular posts! 🙂

    Well it’s no shock that you got nominated-(congrats!)- but I am pleasantly suprised that you thought of me and my little blog. Thanks so much. I was planning on updating tomorrow so I’ll be passing this along with my 7 nominees.

    Congrats on the award, and thank you so much for passing it on to me! I don’t think I could pick just a few bloggers that I would nominate, so I hope it’s okay if I selfishly hang on to it. 😉

    Vaishali—Thanks! You deserve it too! It is really difficult to just choose seven.

    Ricki—Sounds good!

    Katy—Thank you. I just found your blog & added you to my blogroll! That’s one of the best things about having a blog, there’s a weblike (no pun intended) connection between all the bloggers which is fun to discover!

    Crystal—I am so impressed by your blog! It’s so inspiring & makes me want to crank out some homemade pasta. I’ve only tried it once, but don’t have a roller, so it was pretty dense.

    BitterSweet—I think it’s fine to hang onto it. :o)

    Wow, now you’ve introduced me to even more great vegan blogs. Thanks and I’m off to check them out!

    Lisa—Yay, that’s so cool!
