And the award goes to....

I just found out that I got my first blogging award which made me very very happy (try to imagine me jumping around and dancing my happy dance).

A very talented and sweet blogger Christine passed the award to me and I didn’t even notice that I’m one of the five bloggers she had chosen so she sent me an email asking if I noticed I won the award (I’m very busy studying). Isn’t that really sweet of her? Do check out her blog.

I’m really happy I won the award and very honoured since there are so many talented and gifted writers out there.

Christine, thank you again, you really made my day!

Now I’m supposed to share five random facts about myself since that’s the tradition when receiving this award.

This sound’s much easier than it actually is, but I’ll give it a try. Here are random facts about me (in no particular order):

1.      I talk in my sleep. And not just talk… I have long conversations, sometimes with myself and sometimes with Mr. Starlight. A couple of nights ago I was talking to myself in English (or so I was told) and this is a bit weird since my mother tongue is Slovenian.

2.      I love cactuses. I used to collect them but then I moved away from home and now I don’t have any idea where my collection is. I’m sad because of it but I don’t have space in my small apartment for all those cactuses and I always forget to ask my Mum where they are.

3.      I’m a huge Formula 1 fan. I’ve watched it every Sunday after lunch with my Dad and we had always fought about it since we never supported the same driver or team. I still watch it and I’m really happy that Mr. Starlight is also a fan since less and less people enjoy watching this wonderful motorsport.

4.      I own a BlackBerry Curve 8900 (random, ha?). I really wanted one and I got it for my birthday in March. I still love it as much as I did it when I got it (this is very unusual for me since i get bored with every phone in a couple of weeks).

5.      I "ran over" a motorcyclist once. Well actually he hit me... I cut him of in a T-junction and he crashed into me. The police said it was my fault, because I cut him off, but he was driving way over the speed limit and I didn't see him, because he was coming around a corner really fast and by the time he was in my eyesight it was too late, so I really think it was actually his fault.  I had to go in front of a judge, and I got 60 hours of community service. I hate motorcyclists since then.

This was a really hard task (believe it or not, I was writing this for about 45 minutes). But now I have an even harder task to do, following the tradition: Choosing five (just five!!) bloggers to pass the award to.
There are so many excellent writers on my reading list and I would love to pass the award to all of them. But I have to choose just five. So here they are:

Check out their blogs, they are all very talented writers and they all have different styles of writing so I’m sure you won’t be bored.



  1. Yay a well deserved award! Thank you so much for passing it on - it has made my day :) I also love formula one - I used to watch it on a Sunday with my Granda who came to our house to watch the sport in peace.

  2. Thank you Starlight! This is my first blogging award and I am excited! There truly are so many really talented bloggers out there and I take it as a compliment that you like my work.

  3. Hey there, Congratulations...I thought you already knew....and guess what, I talk in sleep too...not very often though... :)

  4. You are very welcome, Starlight! As I said before, you deserve it! And wow, that is scary about the motorcyclist! Was he ok??

  5. Many, many congratulations to you! Well deserved!! Formula One is great; I'm a NASCAR girl myself, but I love anything having to do with racing! :)

  6. @Louba - Thanks! You deserve it too :) Oh, and another thing we have in common, F1 :) We should watch it together someday :)

    @Barbara - Well, your posts are very interesting and I enjoy reading your blog so you deserve this award.

    @Caterpillar - Thanks :) LoL, you also talk in sleep? I'm glad I'm not the only one :)

    @Christine - Thanks again! You really made my day!
    The motorcyclist was ok, luckily.

    @The Frisky Virgin - Thank you a lot! It's nice to know that some bloggers also enjoy watching F1. We should all watch it together some day :) And NASCAR is also great!

    @WCOTFT - Thanks. I gave you the award because I really enjoyed reading your fictional stories and I hope you won't stop writing them. You're very talented.

  7. Congatulations. First of many, I am sure :)

  8. Well done you! (and thank you!) - I feel honoured you like my writing - enough to pass it on! :)

  9. Yay congrats~ And I secretly have a fear of running a motorcyclist over as well. It's a hard task to run them over tho, being as all the trucks in this country as well as a lot of cars and motorcycles sport the sticker "watch out motorcycles are everywhere" lol... Congrats again!

  10. @Baglady - Thank you for your kind words :)

    @Bth - Thanks. I really enjoy reading your blog.

    @Doria - Thanks :)

  11. yay congrats on your award! and u sleep talk too? whoa we're the same! i think it's funny coz i also do that in English which is not my native tongue. But English is my first language at work, no wonder why i always dream about talking with my officemates and clients!lol

  12. @Maria - Thank you. Yeah I talk in my sleep and Mr. Starlight says it's very funny :)
    It's nice to hear that other people also talk in their sleep and that I'm not wierd :)

    @With cherry on the freakin' top - Hey, I'm writing you here (I hope you'll see it) because I can't leave a comment on your blog. Since you changed your layout (which is very nice) I can't comment. Am I the only one or is there something wrong with your blog?
