I happened to be googling my blog this evening (don't ask me why; I just felt like googling my blog) and I found out, completely by accident, that I was tagged for two different memes back in July! And I had no idea whatsoever about this! When you tag me, please leave a comment to let me know I've been tagged! I do try to keep up with my friends' blogs, but I'm afraid I don't always get to read every post, so if you don't let me know I might never discover that I've been tagged. (Unless I google myself again on a whim.)

Erin from Seven Little Australians tagged me! Thanks so much, Erin! :-D

The rules:

1. List Seven Things That Make You Awe-Summm!
2. Pass the award on to seven bloggers you read religiously.
3. Tag those seven bloggers.

Ummm. . . seven awesome things about me. . . not the best tag for cultivating humility, LOL. I'll see how I go. . . 

1. I have an awesome God

2. I have a truly awesome family!

3. I. . . uhh. . . I can play guitar!

4. Umm. . . I. . . am a decent cook! I love baking lots of sweet things.

5. This is hard!! Like Napoleon Dynamite, I feel that I "don't have any good skills", or any other awesome things about me, LOL. Okay, I just thought of something - I have an awesome blog! And the awesomest thing about my blog is the fact that I've made so many friends through blogging. :-)

6. I live in an awesome country! I love Australia. It's an breathtakingly beautiful land.

7.  This isn't an awesome thing, but I've completely run out of awesome things, so: I have really long hair! Well, fairly long. Way past my waist. I'm trying to get it to 1 metre long. I don't know why, I just think it would be cool to have hair a metre long. :P

Whew, that was one hard tag to fill in!

Now, seven people: Bria, Jen, Autumn, Barbara, Alexandra, and my twin sisters, Grace and Naomi (my sisters have private blogs, if you'd like to read their blogs, please email me).

Now, Alexandra gave me the Honesty Scrap Award! Thanks, Alexandra!


-Thank the person who gave the award to you
-Post ten honest facts about yourself
-Pass the award onto seven others.

Ten honest facts. This sounds a bit easier, LOL! 

1. I tend to procrastinate.

2. I used to think Hippocrates was pronounced Hippo Crates (as in hippo for hippopotamous and crate as in a large box).

3. I sometimes stay up late reading. 

4. I have grumpy moods. And upset moods, where I cry upon the least provocation. In other words, I'm female. . .

5. I am hopelessly hopeless at sports.

6. I can be (read: am) messy and disorganised.

8. I can be very shy, and I usually find it extremely hard talking to people who I don't know well.

9. I had a massive crush on Prince William when I was about 12 or 13 (didn't we all? :P). I don't like him anymore though, FYI. 

10. I am really, really bad at maths.

Well, I don't want to tag the same people all over again, so I might pick some others. But if you'd like to do the tag anyway, even if you didn't get tagged, please do so. Or if you were tagged but don't want do it, of course you don't need to if you don't want to!

Erin, Gae, Deanne, Embrethiliel, Adam, Laurie, and Joanna.

That was fun. :-D I'm glad I chanced to discover those tags through google!


Enbrethiliel said...


Thanks for the tag! =)

On #9: Well, I once had a slight crush on Prince William, too, but now Prince Harry is my favourite of the two brothers. ;-)

Gae said...

Dear Elise,
Thank you yes I will be taged but have a couple of planning things to organise first. i will get to it though, Thanks again
God Bless

Embrethiliel - well, I once had bit of a crush on Prince Harry, too. That was before I liked Prince William. These days, I don't really like either of them. . .

Gae - okay, sounds fine. Thanks for participating!

Marian said...

I just want to let you know I really like your blog!!! I looked at your favourite heroes and heroines list, and you named a lot of good ones! I am a huge costume drama fan... =)

The Editrix said...

Thanks, Marian! :-D

Autumn said...

Dear Elise.
Thank's for the tag! Looks like it will be a bit of a challange for me to fill it in, which makes all the more fun.

The Editrix said...

Hope you enjoy it, Autumn! :-)

Miss Jen said...

Thanks you for the tag, Elise!! :)
I usually just do tags on facebook...
are you on facebook?

Love~ Jen

The Editrix said...

No, I'm not on FB. If you want to do your tag on facebook, that would be just fine, Jen! :-)

Erika said...

Hello Elise,
I just have to say that I adore your blog. There's so much to read and look at! You're such an intelligent young woman. I've been following your blog for a couple months now, but I haven't been active on my blogspot account until recently.
I'm very glad to meet another sister in Christ and one who enjoys good literature and period films. :)
In His grace
