One Lovely Blog Award!

Sofia is one of the loveliest people I have the honour to know, and I am so glad she thought of me when passing this award around.

Here are the rules for this award:
You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
You must list the rules and display the award.
You must add 7 facts about yourself.
You must nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
You must display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you.

Super lovely people!

  • Katy, because she is such a fun person whose style I admire a lot and who is one of the few people to make me happy to be a part of fandoms.
  • Alex, because I can’t wait for his Wait (heheh) and his blog probably makes me a better person.
  • m.brown, because without him my world would turn many (fifty, perhaps?) shades greyer.
  • Sati, because she is one of the greatest people I know even if it’s only via internet, and she inspires me every single day.
  • Big Screen Small Words, because that blog is an incredible read at any given time.
  • Brittani, because next to Sati, I love her the most in this wonderful community.
  • Anna, because nobody has ever won my heart so quickly as she did as she entered the blogging world with her big colourful dots and the Australian accent I hear whenever reading her posts.
  • Mettel Ray, because I admire her endlessly!
  • Zoe, because a) she radiates happiness, and b) she takes my advice on books!!!
  • Ruth, because she is someone to look up to.
  • Ryan, because I’ve said it before: his reviews are beautiful. Also, he’s really great and attentive.
  • Mette, because even if she doesn’t blog anymore, she has a marvelous personality. And a way with words.
  • Nostra, because of her fantastic blogathons.
  • Mikey, because he’s borderline hilarious — and awesome.
  • Fisti, because he really knows how to keep a community going.

Facts? Suuuuure.

  • True Detective started airing in Estonia and I thought the first episode was FANTASTIC.
  • At the first seminar we had in Norway, I joked to a German boy that I can smell it if someone has jerked off in the shower, and he with his German friends laughed about it at every. single. exchange student. seminar. we had throughout the year.
  • I probably shouldn’t have told you of that one.
  • I think Coke is an essential drink with cinema, breakfast, late night study sessions, writing, working, school, free hours at school, sleepovers and dinner.
  • Me and my dog have many things in common: we hate cats, won’t get out of bed early in the morning even if we need to pee, demand for attention so often that people get tired of us, are offended easily, sulk in our beds after named offenses, forgive very quickly, love swimming in the sea, don’t mind filth, don’t understand social norms and challenge them often.
  • I really want to do an Ironman triathlon before I’m 25.
  • My host dad once chased me down a icy hill with a tractor because I was afraid to go down to get on the school bus.

Wow. This was fun! Thank you so much, Sofia!

  1. Oh no. It’s not good for me to be inspiring to people. It’s gonna be bitter town and psycho station for you if you do that, kids!

    Icy hills and tractors, jerking off in the showers and True Detective. Oh that post is full of win! 🙂

  2. Again, you’re most welcome Elina! As soon as I read ‘lovely’ I thought of you! And I might’ve found some great blogs in your list (like Film Grimoire – I stumbled upon it once and been meaning to come back to it!).

  3. Elina! Thanks so much for the nomination, I am so chuffed! And thank you for the lovely words. Big smile right now!

  4. Aww, you’re a doll! I’m glad you finally get to see True Detective, and wtf to your dad? lol. That sounds like something my dad would do too.

  5. Thank you so much Elina! I’m happy to be able to make fandom-ing (?) fun!!
    I can’t believe I still haven’t seen True Detective…

  6. Thanks so much Elina, I’m glad someone finds me funny!

    We should write a comic about you. You could be a superhero who’s power is smelling guys wanking in the shower. I’ll admit we might be limited when it came to storylines though 🙂

  7. I don’t know why, but I found it really heartwarming to be called “attentive”. Thanks so much for this…really helps me keep chugging along

  8. Ironman triathlon! Awesome stuff! Go for it! 🙂

  9. Thank you, Elina! 🙂 True Detective is awesome, I hope you enjoy the rest of the show!

  10. Oh wow – you’re so kind! Thank you so much for your nice words and for including me in such fine company. I really enjoy your blog as well!

  11. Hi Elina!! Congrats on your award and THANK YOU for kindly passing it to me. Awesome facts too, wow you want to do Iron Man Triathlon before 25?? Oh you young’un you… but hey if you set your mind to it I’m sure you can do it girl!!

  12. First, I think I threw up in mouth in regards to your exchange with that German kid.
    Second, your dog comparison is borderline brilliant. No, f–k it. Nothing borderline about it.
    Third, doing shit before your 25 makes me sad for my wasted youth. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

    I once received a giant, heavy box for Christmas from a girl who knew me all too well (well, not that well). Anyway, she was very wealthy and the mystery box became the number one thing I was concerned about that Christmas. I honestly thought it was a television.

    Do you know what it was inside? 30 cans of Coke. All individually wrapped. But sadly…no films. (and thanks for the mention!)

  13. “I joked to a German boy that I can smell it if someone has jerked off in the shower”. There are no words for this 🙂
