Another blog award - this time I am stylish!

I was awarded the Stylish Blogger Award from So Frenchy So Chic, and as part of that award I have to share seven facts about me, so here we go...

A Collection a Day #48 - X-Men Comic Books

I collect comics, it used to be X-Men comics (and a lot of them) but now I just collect one comic - zombie awesomeness in the form of The Walking Dead. If you are a zombie fan I seriously recommend you get this comic it is awesome, and even better it has now been made into a TV series.

I don't like coffee at all. I won't have hot coffee, iced coffee, coffee flavoured desserts, coffee liqueur - nothing with coffee in it! I thought maybe as I got older I would come around to it but it doesn't look like it is going to happen.

Wreck this Journal: Shopping Lists

I love writing lists. Lists for groceries, lists of things I want to do, lists of things I want to buy, lists of things I own, lists of everything really. There is something very satisfying about crossing things off of lists, does that make me sad?

I guess you could call me a bit of a computer geek. I finished my Honours degree in Computer Science in 2004 and then started my PhD - did that for a year and then decided it wasn't for me and quit. I only ended up working as a programmer for a couple of years before I knew I wanted a change in careers. Now I am studying to be an accountant.

I worked at both McDonald's and Pizza Hut when I was a teenager - bring on that fast food :P

I would say that I am a bit of a dreamer. I'm always thinking of all of the wonderful things that I am going to do but then I don't end up doing them. This is something I am going to start changing this year!

250/365: Welcome to the Psych Ward: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

I may be slightly OCD. I feel uncomfortable when there are dishes that need doing, I sort my lollies into colours and my wardrobe is ordered by colour too. All normal stuff right? Right? Please don't tell me that I am strange.

And now to nominate some lovely blogs for this award...

Ooh you're right - you and I are so similar! I love X-men, have an IT degree and moved from web programming into project management (which I love). Goes well with my love of making lists - although my obsession has evolved into creating spreadsheets (my husband teases me to no end but does admit that he reaps the benefits). I also hate coffee - can't stand it - even a slight bit, and thats after working in coffee houses and being around very good quality stuff - yuck! And my husband also teases me about being slightly OCD. Everything has to be in order, colour coordinated - even the kids stuff (now that is a challenge!) - so yes, I would say your organisation and OCD is normal. ;) Thanks for the nomination too. :)

I love making lists too, but not drinking coffee... I love my coffee, though I stopped drinking coffee 2 days ago to see if it help on my heartburn... hate to say that it seems to help because I miss my coffee!
Have a nice weekend!

I love, love, LOVE making lists too. Thank you for passing the award on! :)

Levin said...

of course you are perfectly normal - there are just so many varying degrees of normal. I'm not even going to start on my quirks ;-)
it's nice to find out some more about you......

Thanks so much, Alicia! You're really showering me with attention this month ;p. I'm a bit of a geeky girl, too. Not so much a wiz with computers, but my boyfriend and I watch BUTTLOADS of anime shows and he's a huge Star Wars fan. I do like coffee but have to stay away now for health reasons.

I wish we could be friends in the "real world." Haha, we seem similar :) I'm a huge dreamer, I love lists too (they are cool!), and I love arranging my wardrobe in colour code. You are not strange one bit...haha or maybe we both are? I don't care :)

Well done on your stylish award

Aw, thank you for passing this award on to me. I'll be sure to post about it this week. Congrats on getting it yourself!

I used to collect X-Men comics too. They weren't the original ones but the Ultimate series. They were awesome! I've since had to sell them all though. And I'm fairly rubbish when it comes to computers but I'm a bit of a game geek, hehe.

Thanks Alicia for passing on the award to me. Great to read even more about you! I'm a color freak too - I freak out when colors are not put in the 'right' order! LOL :)

Gabbi said...

Alicia, I'm a comic book geek too! Great to read and learn more about you... wish I had your organizing OCD thing. I need that!
