The Kreativ Blogger Award

Guess what? I’ve been nominated for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

The name reminds me of Mortal Kombat’s replacement of C’s with K’s (or the Kremlin), and I kouldn’t feel more honored than to receive my nomination from Ms. Kasia James (her name really starts with a “K” by the way).

She fills her blog—Writer’s Block—with great posts about writing, and she’s kurrently celebrating the release of her first novel The Artemis Effect, available for purchase at Amazon.

So, as part of my nomination for the Kreativ Blogger Award, I must share seven things about myself, and if you don’t share these seven things with seven people before seven A.M., absolutely nothing will happen.

1)      The first book I ever wrote was a Legend of Zelda fan fiction. I was around eight, and I had no idea how weird fan fiction would get years later.

2)      I used to have jet black hair, but it started turning partly reddish. I still can’t figure out how or why.

3)      Supposedly, I was named after Michael Knight, David Hasselhoff’s character in the television show Knight Rider. Way to not give me the car along with the name, mom and dad.

4)      I’m a mimic. I can pretty much replicate any sound that I hear, including instruments like harmonicas and trumpets. I really love recreating Ennio Morricone songs (The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly).

5)      The only candy I enjoy is chocolate, caramel, or vanilla flavored.

6)      During a Wing Chung Kung Fu class, I repeatedly stepped on a fellow student’s big toe, and I’m pretty sure I broke it.

7)      I once uploaded a picture of my boss to the company’s Facebook page with the caption “surfing for porn” by mistake.

There you have it. You can never un-know what you’ve just read.

So who else do I konsider to be kreativ? I’ve got a long list of kreativ blogs in mind, but I’ll narrow it down to three:

1)       Of kourse, I have to include one of my favorite blog destinations—Anna’s blog 27 in Twenty Twelve. It’s hilariously creative, and I get pretty sad when she doesn’t write anything for a while (this is my passive-aggressive way of telling her to post more!).

2)      I also enjoy Misprinted Pages because Stephanie posts a variety of creative posts on different subjects ( I especially like Awesome Book Cover Fridays).

3)      Finally, IMMAR ART posts some of the most creative and just plain beautiful art I’ve seen in a long time. He’s a very talented artist, and I’m always excited when he posts a new piece.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the creative blogs I frequently peruse; my list would be pretty unwieldy if I included everyone though. 🙂

  1. so you’re like that one character off the police academy movies? that is pretty damn cool. i am very challenged in the sound effects area. even my daughter can make the wookie sound – not me.

  2. You sweet sonofabitch. I swear I was thinking that before I found your shout-out at the end.

    First of all, this is the most endearing “about me” list that I’ve encountered- and with all the jobs that I’ve started and quitted, I’ve encountered many.

    I’m in awe of those who can mimic sounds. I can mimic movement very well- together we can be a fierce 2 bodied/1 brained mime. Secondly, Knight Rider, really?? My brothers were named after Troy Donahue, Lee Majors, and Eric Estrada. And wtf do I get- Anna Karina…

    Next time that I get to NYC, I’m stopping by. And I want your sisters to smother my face with their boobs. Again, I cannot thank you enough for all of your encouragement, support, shout-outs, plugs, and laughs. Now finish that book and start a humor blog, MFer!!



    • Awww, shucks. You’re the best. You know you’re my vitiligo negro, right? 🙂

      As soon as you said 2 bodied/1 brained mime, I thought of The Man with Two Brains. I know it’s not the same thing, but I imagined you as a singing brain and me as a dancing Steve Martin. We could always switch though.

      Dude, Anna Karina! Isn’t she a French actress? Also, it’s pretty close to Anna Karenina, so you could do it up Tolstoy style.

      The good thing about being a teacher is the vacation. If you and yo man decide to come to NYC, we mos def have to hang out!

  3. Oh my, vitiligo nigga. I sharted. I’ll tell the students that that’s what I can be to them.

    Hell yes, Anna Karina is foine! And the movies that she’s in are rad- I like Godard. Anywho, after the first week of school, I’m setting a goal to not become a lame-ass teacher who is obsessed with their overly-valued job and to maintain my blog and my bod. And partially because you encourage me to do so. So thank you. And keep it gutter, my mutt who likes to do it in the butt. Holler.

  4. Wow! There is a hero with the same name as Troy Donahue: Ambers O’Neal “Troy” Shewmaker/Cansler. Troy was a hero.
