Versatile Blogger Award

S at Ticking Clock, Nell at Skatingontheedgeofmadness and The Baby Chase Project have kindly nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.

S has a super-cool profession, she is a federal agent and is a young (like moi) SMC-in-the-making who writes a funny and engaging blog that has made me laugh out loud quite a few times. Nell is a very caring person who works as a teacher. She sounds like she is great with children, she would make a wonderful mother.  'The Baby Chase project' is a recent entry into the blogsphere.  This is written by a physician who has just begun her TTC journey as well. She sounds like a sensible and brave person and I love how scientific and matter of fact she is. All of these women are remarkable. It goes without saying that you have to be an utterly brave and determined person to set out on this path, at whatever age and whatever walk of life.

This award comes with certain rules

•thank and link back to the person nice enough to give you the award
•share seven things about yourself
•pass the award along to seven other bloggers who you think are fabulous
•contact the bloggers you chose and let them know about the award

And here go 7 utterly random facts about me.

1)I was an entirely sunny, happy and perfect baby (according to mommy), except at mealtimes where I was literally the world's most reluctant eater. Horror stories abound in that department and I'm praying its not a hereditary trait!

2)I'm a bookworm. I cut my teeth on Enid Blytons (the best children's books ever) at age 5 and I've read probably well over a 1000 books between then and now. Favorite Author- Diana Gabaldon!

3)I'm horribly stubborn. My mother's affectionate nickname for me was 'katte' in Tamil, which is my native tongue. This translates to 'donkey' :)

4)One side of my body is an entire inch shorter than the other.

5)I'm horribly klutzy at most sports, but get me in the water and I'm suddenly coordinated (pic of me snorkelling in the Maldives)

6)I've got a major sweet tooth. My favorite breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning is a quart of Haagen-dazs and my coffee most closely resembles sugar syrup.

7)I'm an anglophile, especially when it come to television. I love everything ever made by Masterpiece Theater. LOVE all the Jane Austen productions and think the best television ever produced was the Pride and Prejudice version with Colin Firth in the lead *sigh*

About which blogs to nominate, its really hard to pick just 7!  Everybody setting out on the path to be a parent immediately earns your admiration and all these women have gone though so much and are so supportive- I feel like every TTC blog I've ever read should be up here. But still, here goes.
1 The Pause
2 With all my heart
3 Missconceived
4 Chasing Rainbows
5 The Baby Chase Project
6 Single Mom to be
7 Single Infertile Female


  1. Thanks for thinking of me lady! Seriously so sweet!!

    And I think we know I share that klutzy thing with you! ;)

  2. Oh, I'm a klutz I'm always baffled when they make me carry the cake...I've only dropped a few though, lol!

  3. #6 - The best part about being a grown up is having ice cream for breakfast!!

    #7 - I {heart} Colin Firth....swooon

  4. Thanks for reading, and for the nomination!

    My tea is pretty much a sugar syrup - the spoon almost stands up on it's own. And I love reading as well. Ramona Quimby was my first 'book friend'. Loved Beverly Cleary.

  5. I would love to have breakfast with you.. sounds delicious!!

    Thanks for the nomination. You are young but so mature and just know what you want it life. Amazing!!

  6. Thank you for reading my posts and for your nomination. Coming from you, it's a sincere compliment.

    So you are an anglophile, too! I have a DVD shelf reserved for BBC movies. I usually order the newest BBC productions from the website because I can't wait for Colin Firth IS Mr. Darcy. I loved him in The Importance of Being Earnest, too. There is something quite riveting about calf length, black leather boots and cravats!
