Stylish....Who Me???

Friends, Bloggers, Country Men ( And Women...ahem...of Blogger Land of course!)...Here's a bit of surprising news....I've been bestowed with the Stylish Blogger Award by The Enigmatic, Masked Blogger. Thank You times three, Enigmatic, Masked Blogger. I'm thrilled and amazed and has apparently landed on Cloud Nine.

 In the real world, I wouldn't exactly be the first person to pop into your mind when you heard 'Stylish' , but then I guess I don't quite mind being diva-esque in the virtual world and throw some kisses in the air. Now, though I'd like to go on and on and on some more about this Diva thing, I think it would be better to accept the award gracefully, follow the rules and pass it without further ado, here we go...

 In order to accept this award, I have to

 1. Thank and link back to the person who gave this award to you - Check

 2. Share 7 things about yourself - Oh Dear, here we go again...

Hmm, it's not getting any easier, I tell little things, seven little things....c'mon's just seven things...okay, here's one...

a.) I enjoy rains a lot. So much that while back in college, I'd never carry an umbrella with me during the monsoons. I like to walk in the drizzle...and I like to watch when it rains. I like how the sky is overcast and the weather is cool when it rains. I think of it as romantic in some way.

b.) There was this one time when I wrote something snide about someone into a chat window and sent it...only to realize that in a fit of anger, I had sent the message to the person I had written it about.

c.) As a kid, I used to hate Maths. I sucked at the subject and had no hopes of ever being the next Newton. Anything to do with numbers gave me a panic attack. I enjoy playing Sudoku now.

d.) I'm a huge fan of Animation and cartoon movies. Shrek, Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella are my all time favorites.

e.) I used to attend violin classes for 4 years until one day I impulsively quit out of stubbornness, or rather pigheadedness.

f.) I cannot really say a 'No' most of the time...even to door to door sales people. I have been trying to get over this weakness for some time and have had sporadic success so far.

g.) I kept telling Prince Charming that I've got a crush on Hugh Jackman just to get him all worked up, and now have ended up officially having a huge crush on him.

So now that I'm done with sharing 7 random facts about me, let's move on to the next rule.

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers - Not really easy but easier than the previous here are my set of Stylish Bloggers...

Runaway Bride at Chronicles of an Arranged Indian Marriage

Dani at Fading Margins

I feel 15 was too small a number and wish I could give to a few more people...but then, rules are rules, right? So Congratulations, guys...!

Now why don't you all go over and meet these awesome bloggers...go on, don't be shy... 

4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award - Check

Thanks to my traitor system, it has taken me a long, loooong time to inform every one about the award, but I've finally managed to inform most of case you didn't get my message, I apologize...

It's almost Friday, and it's a three day weekend for me...amn't I pleased or til the next time...

Signing off...

    I love rain too. I often get chastised for not wearing a raincoat or using an umbrella...just something about the feeling of washing away the old and making things new. <3 it!

    My favorite by far ="...sent the message to the person I had written it about." Sounds like something I would do!
