Awards and Acceptance Speeches . . .

I discovered this morning that I've been awarded the Stylish Blogger Award by Amanda Borenstadt at A Fortnight of Mustard.

What can I say? I'm dead chuffed!!! And as I wipe a tear of happiness from one's eye and stand proudly on the stage holding my award close to my heart, I can't help but think how lucky I am. I feel (*sniff) so honoured to be here accepting this. I never dreamed this would happen, and I'm sooo happy (*Wipes at another tear). But I couldn't have done it without my wonderful followers, who's very presence has been a constant reminder that I need to keep my (*snivel) my blog looking stylish so as to appeal. So I thank you. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Thank you! THANK YOU . . . (*Squealing as one gets dragged off the stage).

Anyway, back to reality. Because this is the first 'award', I feel it's only right that I carry on the tradition that Amanda brought to my attention. I need to list 7 things about myself, and then award 7 other lucky bloggers.

7 Boring Facts About Myself:

1: Writing and drawing are my life, and have been since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I also squeeze reading and movies in there from time to time too.

2: DRC are my maiden initials - Dawn Rose Cartwright - and I think it's great when I hand over my credit card, they see DR Cartwright and think I'm a Doctor.

3: I'm a big believer in the paranormal - but I'm also a sceptic. If I can't think of a rational explanation for something I put it down to those pesky ghosts, ghouls and goblins.

4: I love cats. I go all gooey over them - including my own persian fluff-ball.

5: I'm a major daydreamer. This is probably where I get most of my ideas.

6: I'm a blonde through and through (although starting to speckle with grey). I'm the sort of person who puts blindfolds on and then turns to a mirror to see what they look like wearing it (yes, I did this).

7: I love writing horror and reading horror, but I seldom watch horror films.

Now, those 7 lucky winners are:

1: Darke Conteur
2: Volataire
3: Ted Cross
4: From Sand to Glass
5: Boudica Marginalia

So there you. Here's your award. Hold it high with pride . . .


  1. I've just got back from throwing up from your acceptance speech and I love number 2.

    Thankyou for the award..thankyou..I would just like to say how honoured I am to receive this...sorry, need to go to the loo.

  2. Thank you for the award. :)

    I like #2 too. I'll bet it gets you more attention.

  3. Wow, thanks! What do I do now?

  4. Hey Dark Conteur. It's up to you if you want to take part in listing 7 things about yourself and awarding 7 other bloggers. It's all a bit of fun... ;D

  5. HA, very cool! Keep on bloggin' in style. :-) Oh, I *have* to watch horror films. I think that's where my love of horror fiction originated.
