here be dragons

As you know, I cannot resist blog awards and memes containing questions – and then I subvert them a little bit.


Thanks for the dragon’s loyalty award, onlyiknowthetrueme. Here’s the history of the award in meticulous detail (lol).

Rules broken:

Display the Award Certificate on your website. The original graphic makes me want to barf, so (as usual) I fucked it up a bit lot. I never miss an opportunity to Tolkien-ify things.

Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award. This is it.

Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers. 15!? Sweet Ganesha on a cornflake, that’s a lot of people who’ll say “er thanks, but stop pestering me with memes”. Easiest way to do this is to inflict bestow it on the top commenters here: one, two, three, four, five, six – stats only show six, so. I would, however, also like to present this award to See Sea (for remembering my shrink) and those of you who are as nerdy about Tolkien as I am – you know who you are, you lovely humans.

Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post. One word – pingback.

Post 7 interesting things about yourself. I’m doing 7 boring ones instead, it’s far easier.
i I wish I knew how many times I’ve read LOTR, somewhere  between ten and twenty, I suppose.
ii I’m trying to identify local birdcalls, it’s going as slowly as geology.
iii Noisy eaters turn me homicidal.
iv Green peppers make me burp.
v Old people walking hand in hand melt me completely.
vi The fact that teleportation only exists in sci-fi grieves me.
vii I’m frightened of happiness.

The featured image of this post, by the way, is by Queen Magrethe ii of Denmark. And so is this one…
