I’d like to thank my agent, who always believed in me…

While I was away, everyone seems to have broken out in Beautiful Blogger award! This means we should all stay home with thermometers under our tongues and watch bad movies, right? Right? But for serious, it’s really lovely to get a shout out from someone you think is super rad! Here are the expectations that come with this prestigious award:
1. Thank and link to the super rad person who nominated you. That would be Finch, who is currently too excited to be Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise to care about my thanks, but I send them anyway.
2. Place the award in your blog so everyone can tell how awesome you are.
3. Struggle to come up with seven things about yourself that others might find interesting.
4. Nominate seven other super rad bloggers and link to them.

Prepare to be interested.
3.1 When I was a kid, we lived in a house with no electricity or running water. It was right out of Little House on the Prairie–kerosene lamps, wood stove, heating water on the stove to take baths in a washtub in the kitchen… It’s not something I’d recommend, but did give me an amazing sense of how simple life can be.
3.2 In high school, I played rugby. On a co-ed team. So don’t make me mad or I’ll tackle you.
3.3 My BA is in linguistics. I have studied many languages, including Latin, German, Russian, and Yucatec Maya. Sometimes I lull myself to sleep by thinking of all the words I know for cheese.
3.4 I love to go backpacking. My favorite trip ever was to the Kaulau valley on Kauai, Hawaii. Best part: eating mangoes right off the tree–all sun warmed and delicious. Worst part: naked hippies everywhere.
3.5 My hair is down to my waist. This is more about laziness than vanity. I’d probably look better with shorter hair, but then I’d have to fuss with it. As it is, Mr. Bunny trims it once a year.

3.6 I once made a dress entirely of broken umbrellas I found in the street. It took about a year to collect enough. See photo.
3.7 I’ve been vegetarian since I was fifteen. This choice was made primarily to avoid my mother’s cooking, but I don’t think I’ll go back. The main thing I miss eating is fish sticks. NOM!

Speaking of nom, here are my nominations, which consist of everyone I read who hasn’t been nominated already. As far as I can tell. Sorry if you have and I’m forcing you to generate an additional seven things to share about yourself. And I’m not nominating two of my absolute favorites–Trinity because her blog is all covered with awards so she has no room for more, and Twangy because her page is too pretty to mess with.
4.1 A of A + B…waiting for C. A super strong woman going through a stressful time.
4.2 Call Me Mama. How does she manage to always be so positive? It’s crazy!
4.3 Hope4Joy…and a special shout out to an Ohio sistah!
4.4 Al of Mission Motherhood. So brave!
4.5 JB of Of Cabbages and Kings. I don’t like to play favorites, but Jen is my favorite internet person. That’s just how it is.
4.6 Rain Child. Always serene and lovely, just like her blog design.
4.7 Egg. Such a good one.

Tag, ladies. You’re it.

    Well, golly Beav. I am touched (in a nice way, not a creepy, inappropriate way).I will confess, though, that I kind of made a conscious decision to forgo the bloggy awardy type things cause it can get to be a chore, methinks. Also, I'd be spending all my time thanking Jesus and announcing when my next album drops and I'm trying to stay classy, yo.And I dig the umbrella dress the most. Bjork and her stupid swan can suck it.

  2. Um, Bunny, your badassness is showing. I think you should know that I just squealed over the umbrella dress. Rather audibly. Good job on the award! I'm terrible about the awards. I'm actually kind of a selfish bitch, meaning that someone gives me the award and I seldomly pass them on. I freely own my lazy bitchassness. Naked hippies scare me. I loved your list. 🙂

  3. The feeling is mutual, thank you so very very much for including me. :)I just loved the one about you thinking about the word for cheese in many different languages as you fall asleep at night. Super cool.That dress is awesome! You would've won if it'd been a Project Runway challenge. 🙂

  4. Holy moly but you are a Renaissance woman, A Thoreau-living, rugby-playing, multilingual excellent-seamstress, Renaissance woman. I love that dress, by the way. I actually COVET it. (And I would love to know the Yucatec Maya word for cheese).

  6. How did you not end up being an art major? Your umbrella dress is pretty amazing, as are your pioneer roots.
