VN Wins Sunshine Award: Continues to Bless Readers with Sunshine

sunshine-awardSo check it out. My little chunk of Internet real estate has won the Sunshine Award–an award  given to bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” This is excellent news. I never really thought of Virtual Napkins as very inspiring at all. I write about bets with strippers and writing poems for Hooters girls, so when Taylor Eaton nominated me for this blog award, I was pleasantly surprised.

If you haven’t, you should really check out Taylor’s blog, Little Write Lies. I can’t recommend it enough. She writes really great flash fiction, and she dabbles in all sorts of genres. Check her out and follow her blog here.

Now, in order to accept this award, I have to tell you fine folks 10 things about myself. So here we go…

1. I was a musical theater major for 1 1/2 years until I read Frankenstein, and then I changed to English.
2. I prefer dark liquor like bourbon because it makes me sappy and emotional (in a good way).
3. I have a terrible habit of starting to read too many books at once until I finally just have to pick one to finish.
4. Fall is really hard on my soul. I always feel fuzzy.
5. I’m a big Miami Dolphins fan even though I’ve never lived in Miami and even though the team is full of bullies and racists (that’s a joke…I really wish there were no bullies or racists anywhere).
6. When I was younger, I made terrible short movies. You can see one here.
7. When I graduated from college I weighed 300 pounds. I have since lost 100 of those pounds, and I am not looking to find them.
8. I’m terrified of spiders. Don’t play.
9. I ran a half-marathon in August and almost cried crossing the finish line–not because I was proud but because my calves hurt SO bad.
10. My favorite animal is the red panda. They are ridiculous in the cutest way imaginable.

And finally, my ten nominees:
The Verse Venue
Ghost in the Walls
The language we speak
Shy Gemini
Glitter and Kerosene
Author Miranda Stone
The Desultory Housewife
Lindsay Cummings Writes
Regina West

Everyone should go check out every blog nominated. They are a rich and diverse group.
