Stylish Blogger Award!

12 Jan

Hurrah!  Your favourite health blogger has been nominated for another award!  I am the SHIZNIT!

The idea is that you thank the person who awarded you, pass the award to seven bloggers and write seven facts about yourself.

Okey dokey then!  Thank you very much Gillian!  You have made my day!  😀

The lucky seven blogs I nominate are *drumroll please*:

Now for the seven facts about me!

1. I am terrified of clowns.  The following scares the shit out of me.

Arghhhhh!!!! Source:

2. I could probably eat sushi every day for the rest of my life and be perfectly content.

Get in my mouth. NOW! Source:

3. When I was younger I was obsessed, and I mean OBSESSED, with Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.  I once recorded the Nirvana special on the J Files (a radio show on Triple J that focused on a different band or artist each week in a documentary style) and wrote down the whole broadcast, word for word, in a special notebook labelled “Nirvana”… creepy.

This was my favourite poster out of the hundreds I had in my room! Source:

4. I am a natural blonde but I do confess to lightening my hair to make it SUPER blonde.  The blonder the better I say!  But I did make a drastic decision after my wedding to go red.  Very.  bad.  decision.  I had to darken my eyebrows to martch.  Gah!

Not good.

5. My mum wanted to name me Nadine before I was born but my Grandmother refused to allow it.  She said it sounded like a drug.  eg.  PaNadine.  I often wonder if my life would be different if  I were named Nadine… I am almost certain I would have been better looking.  I’m looking at you, Girls Aloud singer, Nadine Coyle.

Pwhoar! Source:

6.  I love hot chips.  They are my one true diet vice.  I cannot resist them.  I must pinch from others plates if hot chips are present.  It’s a condition you know.  Hot-chip-itis.

Why won’t you be healthy, damn it?! Source:

7. I throw out (or give away) clothes that have stains on them, have missing buttons, have small holes, are too crinkly (I rarely buy clothes that look like they have the potential to need ironing) or attract too much hair.  All because I’m too lazy to fix these minor issues.  What?  I’m extremely comfortable with this rationality.

Straight in the bin! Source:

    I love reading your blog for many reasons but one of them is the non-American English. “Straight to the bin!” so cute haha!

      Hahahaha! That’s not something you guys would say?? 😀

    I’m cracking up, I can totally relate to the clown fear (burrrrr)! And I LOVE Nadine Coyle, actually I love all of Girl’s Aloud.

      Clowns! I hate them! I was even scared of Ronald McDonald as a child. In fact, I think that’s what started this nonsense! Yep. She’s super hot!

    Hahah names DEFINITELY determine attractiveness! Although my middle name is Amanda, so i’m pretty down with that as a all-round awesome title!
    My mum wanted to call me ‘Grace’…perhaps then I’d have some poise?
    Also, love the Nirvana fetish; transcribing the J-files takes some dedication. Or creepy obsession, one of the two 🙂
    Thanks for the mention miss! x

    • Amanda January 13, 2011 at 1:15 pm #

      Oooh! I’ve never known someone with a middle name as Amanda! That’s most exciting. 😀

    Gosh you’re entertaining ha ha!
    Love hot-chip-itis! I suffer from a similar condition however mine extends to all forms of potato…mmmm potato!

    • Amanda January 13, 2011 at 1:22 pm #

      Similar conditions include mashed-potato-olia, hash-brown-itis and baked-potato-lingus… I suffer from all of them.

    Ah thank you lovely!! OHHH I am so there with you with the hot chips. So much so that I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I want my last meal ever to be hot chips. And a hash brown on the side. Drool!

    • Amanda January 13, 2011 at 4:41 pm #

      Stop making me hungry! Grrr! 😉

  6. Tina January 13, 2011 at 4:09 pm #

    ohhh thanks m’dear 🙂

    Your Nirvana obsession sounds very similar to my what my silverchair obsession was like…

    • Amanda January 13, 2011 at 4:42 pm #

      Haha! Chanel from Cats – Love – Cooking had an intense Silverchair obsession! 😉

      • Chanel January 13, 2011 at 10:15 pm #

        My Silverchair obsession was as intense as my Hanson obsession I think – but Silverchair are still great! :p

        Thanks for the nomination! 😀

        I walked past the local fish & chips shop on my way home tonight, and I got this hit of chips & sauce smell and it was so good – I thought of you.

      • Amanda January 13, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

        Hanson. Let’s not even GO there.

        Omg. I live for that smell. That, and the smell of KFC. Drool.
