I’m Cute? Seriously?on September 1st, 2011 at 12:59 pm
Sometimes my friends make life so convenient. I didn’t have a blog post done for today and had no clue what to blog about. Then I woke up to a message from the wonderful Angela Addams letting me know she’d given me a blog award. Not just any award though, she has bestowed upon me the Seriously Cute Blogger Award. Awww….thanks
Like her, I’m kind of confused what about my blog makes it cute, but hey, I’ll take it. And here’s the award it’s self to cute up the place a bit.
Now, on with the meme…
1st RULE: You do not talk about Puppy Club.
2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about Puppy Club.
3rd RULE: You talk about 5 books/films/TV shows you’ve read or watched in the last 12 months. (Uh…have I mentioned how bad my memory is when it comes to time?)
1) Eureka: Just a few weeks ago I did my little rant about how SyFy (*gag*) is canceling the show, but I still absolutely love it with every fiber of my nerdy little heart. One of my favorite couples on TV, a talking house, and Colin Ferguson. It’s an hour worth of nerdgasm every week. I mean, really, how can you go wrong?
2) Bloodlines by Skyla Dawn Cameron. Skyla gave me my first break in the industry, and I adore her. I don’t really know why it took me this long to pick up one of her books, but if you like snarky vampires, you should read it too. Bloodlines was the book that finally broke me out of my reading funk this summer.
3) X-Men First Class: Yes, I know it broke with canon. Yes, I know there were parts that were a little meh. Yes, I know most of the minor characters were underdeveloped. But I have one word for you: Magneto. Michael Fassbender was brilliant and brought so much depth to that character. Plus the Wolverine cameo still cracks me up.
4) A Brush of Darkness by Allison Pang. I’ve been pimping this book to everyone I know who likes urban fantasy. It’s funny, sexy, romantic and full of action. Hell, I have my very own pillow pet unicorn named Phineas because of this book. The sequel isn’t out until January or something and I’m dying. I need to know what happens to my literary crush. Yeah…she made me fall in love with a fictional character that isn’t one of mine. I know he isn’t real. It doesn’t matter. I still want him.
5) Necessary Roughness: I wanted to end with something new and not just new to me. I’ve become extremely picky about TV in recent years (I listen to much more of it than I watch). That means very few new shows make the cut for me. Necessary Roughness is definitely one. Callie Thorne is totally believable as a therapist working with athletes (all of whom have been male so far–really curious to see her with another woman). Plus, since a big chunk of the show takes place at a football arena, there is plenty of eye candy. And, Mark Blucas, I’ve really missed you.
So that’s it. I hope you all check out one (or more) of the things I mentioned. And now I get to pick five seriously cute bloggers…
J.A. Campbell (she writes vampires, but she also writes about horses and dogs…you just can’t hide that kind of cute)
Danielle LaPaglia (she might write about murder and mayhem more than romance and rainbows, but I’ve seen her with her guy…seriously cute)
Skyla Dawn Cameron (because no matter how evil she purports to be, I know she has a cute fuzzy center )
Emma Cunningham (because she has an adorable new baby, which also means she could probably use the post idea )
Screw it, I’m stopping at 4. Too many people I know hate these things anyway
