The Versatile Blogger Award

Haaaay. So. Michelle and Pauline invited me to do this Versatile Blogger Award post. Straightforward stuff.

Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Include a link to their blog
  • Tell the person who nominated you 7 facts about you
  • Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you have recently discovered or follow regularly

So yeah, thank you Michelle and Pauline for selecting me! I feel honoured that you thought of me when you were writing up your posts. πŸ˜‡

Facts about Georgie

  1. I believe in second chances. It’s not that I have always believed that or constantly think about it, but judging from a lot of my life experiences, it seems to be the case. This may or may not be a good thing, but I know that some people have given me second chances too. You can decide.
  2. I just broke my entire blog comments table in my database by updating the character set (#nerd) and Nick spent four hours trying to fix it. I feel so bad. But at the same time I am so attracted to the way he writes queries. #nerd Thank you Nick ILY HEHE πŸ™‚
  3. I braid my hair in meetings. It’s like a tic. I just reach up and start braiding my hair while I sit in a meeting talking to my colleagues or listening. I probably look stupid. It’s better than trichotillomania, which I used to have, and it left bald patches on my head too.
  4. My lunch order in primary school was a chicken drumstick and chicken soup. It was only $1.10 for each item! How cheap is that!
  5. I no longer eat chicken.
  6. I actually tried to eat meat again recently but it was hard to stomach. I stopped eating meat from land animals in the first place because I was not as drawn to the taste anymore. Still, I remember the times that it tasted good, and tasting it again was not as good as I had remembered. I decided to remain pescetarian for now.
  7. Spinach is my favourite vegetable. Nick and I went to Din Tai Fung earlier this week and they forgot to put the spinach in my soup so I got a separate bowl of it and it was huge. I pretty much ate it all. Yuuuuuuuum.

Cool people 😎

I’m just going to name a handful of people and hope I hit fifteen. If you are here, you don’t have to feel obligated to write your own post, but you can leave a comment with your facts if you like! I think some of these people may have already done their own post too.

Congrats on the award! I believe in second chances too, depending on the person. I would want people to give me a second chance, so I should do the same back.

I twirl my hair around my fingers in meetings or at my desk, and I usually don’t even notice I’m doing it. When I had longer hair, I used to braid it too, but I think having shorter hair made me stop that habit.

I also love spinach! I’m not sure if it’s my favorite (I really like broccoli), but it’s up there πŸ™‚

Aww, thanks for nominating me!

Yay! You finally did posted about the Versatile Blogger Award. I had no idea you had a tic, too! I have a weird one, myself where I have to play with wrinkles on pants especially jeans. It’s just so weird.

Thanks for the nomination, Georgie! πŸ˜„

That blog comment database you broke . . . EEEEK! I’m glad you had Nick around to help you! I’d have probably utterly panicked πŸ˜†

I don’t always like meat, either. I only like certain type and the depending on how it’s prepared. Chicken is my favourite, though, so I am not sure if I can ever give that up! πŸ˜†;

And spinach is awesome! Have you ever tried the Korean-style spinach dish? They are so good.

Second chances are great to give when it is deserved πŸ™‚. I’m usually a three-strike kind of person; so if someone does me wrong or gets me mad 3 times, I am done for a really long time! It’s so awesome of Nick for fixing your comments table πŸ˜„. He’s a keeper πŸ˜‰. My boyfriend can’t be cool enough to fix a table, but I’ll hope that he can fix my car when I ~break~ it πŸ˜†.

It’s cool how you braid your own hair all nicely and everything! I can’t braid my own hair and it doesn’t look best with me :6. It’s good that you stopped eating red meat (or land meat). I think I am starting to draw away from meat more recently. My boyfriend and person I look up to are both pescetarians so it influenced me a bit. I mostly eat beef while avoiding pork and chicken when possible. Buuut I’m still drawn to KBBQ, ribs, steak, and BBQ ;~;. It’s awesome how you have Din Tai Fung over there in Aussie too!!! We have it here and I see it as an upscale Dim Sum restaurant πŸ˜†.

Thank you for the tag~~

Thanks for the nominating me Georgie! β™₯
I believe in second chances as well! It just feels right to forgive and learn to forget especially if the relationship/person meant so much too you

And I also love to braid my hair!( well not recently ’cause my hair is short). Today, I am more addicted in doing other people’s hairstyles more than mine πŸ™‚

Best regards,
Ariane

Oh no. That would have been a major doom when you broke the comments. I am glad that you could get it fixed.

I guess no one would really care if you braided your hair and they knew that you were listening. It is a much better one than the old problem. That would have been hard to deal with, I am glad that you have moved on from that. *hugs a million billion*

After not eating β€˜meat’ for so long I can imagine that the taste would have been really strange. Was it also to do with your health that you stopped as well (red meat?) I have some memory of reading that at some point…… or I imagined it. πŸ˜†

I do the hair thing too! When I’m in a brainstorming meeting with my boss, I just reach up for my hair. I don’t know I’m doing it until I need my hands for something (probably to write something down) & I’m like DANG IT. I know it probably gets suuuuper annoying to people.

Pescetarian? Is it like being a vegetarian, except you eat fish also?

So jealous you went to Din Tai Fung. That place is awesome! I went to two of their locations, one in Southern California (close to Los Angeles) and one in Hong Kong. Both equally delicious! πŸ™‚
