Twenty One

My brain is frazzled today, this being my Friday (I work 5 days a week, Friday through to Tuesday), so rather than concoct a blog post on the fly like normal, I’m going to do one of those “tag a blog” thingies. Many thanks to Endalia over at Princess in a Castle and Narratess for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

The Versatile Blogger Award

Again, thanks to Endalia for nominating me for this, especially as it helps fill a gap in my mind right now! There’s a whole “tag 15 other bloggers” type thing but I’m going to socially distance myself from that and not do it, partially because I’m lazy, and partially because every blogger I know has probably been nominated already, given that I was nominated 15 whole days ago! However, if you see this and wanna do it yourself too, then consider yourself nominated, I BELIEVE IN YOU.

Gonna copy/paste the “rules” for this thing.

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.”



  • I was born two days late, which means I was meant to be an April Fool baby! No idea if that has some sort of significance in supersition or whatever. I doubt it does.
  • My grandfather was a refugee during World War 2 from Lithuania. Not sure if he was fleeing the Nazis or the Soviet Union, perhaps both. As a result of this ancestry, my mother’s maiden name is one entirely unique to our family; no other family in the UK has it (I’ve looked it up!). It’s not overwhelmingly common in Lithuania either, which means it’s a perfect security question for literally any website, hence why I will not reveal what it is.
  • I have a terrible intolerance to raw tomatoes. It’s something specific to the acid in the raw fruit that makes me feel awfully ill within about two hours of eating them. Tomato juices also trigger rather severe dermatitis in my hands, so that’s joyful. Preparing the tomatoes in some manner that neutralizes the acidity level can help prevent it, but a high enough concentration of tomato can wreck me no matter how prepared it is.
  • My favourite font is Helvetica.
  • I have watched a single Star Wars movie in my life. It was The Phantom Menace, and I hated it. Never watched another once since, and I don’t plan to either.
  • I used to live in the same town as Stonehenge. Like, I could easily walk to it from my house. Great for celebrating the Summer Solstice! It’s one of two notable things about Amesbury; the other being that it’s the oldest continuously occupied settlement in the whole of the UK.
  • While I don’t play first or third person shooters often, when I do I very much favour a sniper playstyle. Set up, shoot, move, repeat. Sneaky Skyrim archer, Infiltrator in Mass Effect, heavy TTD sniper in The Outer Worlds!

There you have it. Seven things about me. Again, not tagging 15 people, but feel free to share seven things about yourself! I’d love to get to know you!
