Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award I received the Versatile Blogger Award from PiP over at Piglet In Portugal!

I’d not heard of this before today and I feel very honoured! A big thank you to PiP for considering me, I’m all smiles and cheeriness now!

It’s been said on other blogs that the best way to accept the award is by listing 7 random facts about myself and by Paying it Forward, therefore I’ll honour the traditional, and give you all a good laugh, with my random facts and list some quality bloggers who also deserve this award for their blogging prowess and  bringing smiles to my face and thoughts to my brain!

7 Random Facts about me.

  1. I love zombie films & books! I’m fascinated by the apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic genre.
  2. I’ve just started making a short animated film with plasticine figures, I’m taking baby steps and it’s very time consuming so I only manage a few seconds of footage here and there, but it’s ace fun!
  3. My favourite film is Stand By Me.
  4. I have an insane fear of wasps, it’s the buzzing. Why do they always head straight for my ear?
  5. I’d love to live by the sea, some place warm but not too warm. Nothing fancy, a small hut would suffice!
  6. I grow Cayenne Peppers in the kitchen even though I don’t like them! When a fresh batch is ready I pickle them and send them to my sister who adores those red devils!
  7. If I could trade places with any film character it would Tom Cruise in Cocktail for his idyllic beach bar. I love making cocktails!

And the Versatile Blogger Awards goes to…

  1. Hey NoobCake,

    Love your blog and it is really Versatile and your posts are varied, informative and thought provoking 🙂

    I am intrigued by the animated films using plasticine figures. Love Wallace and Grommit and the Chicken run.

    I know I’ve been at the wine tonight, but have you changed your blog theme?

  2. Hey PiP, the animated films thingy has come about after many years of wanting to do it but never thought I could. I found a piece of software called MonkeyJam, very basic but it does that stop motion animation pretty well. A far cry from Wallace & Grommit but fingers crossed I can make something funny!

    No, it’s not the wine! I changed my theme about a week or so ago in favour of something a bit more credible and better laid out.

Speak to me!
