Wednesday Fun - I've been tagged!

I have just learned that I've been tagged by Author Jessica Bell last month!  Yes, last month! Can you imagine how bad I am that I have not read it???  So if I have not visited your blog for awhile, forgive me.  It's not only you.  I have noticed quite recently that a few of my followers are 'unfollowing' me, maybe they think I've forgotten them because I have not been commenting for awhile.  That's sad.  Believe me, I have been trying.  I am! I really am! Just can't keep up, lovelies!  Eeeeeeekkkk!!!

*Calming self down*

*Breath in.  Breath out.*

Shall we continue? Jess tagged me so here's what I need to do:  I have to answer the following questions and follow the instructions and tag five lovely bloggers.

Do you think you're hot?
Are you referring to my body temperature? I can assure you, it is normal. Hehehe.


Upload a picture of wallpaper you are using at the moment.
This was taken in 2008 when husband and I went to London with our two good friends, Jemima and Orren.  I loved those two days with them. This shot was taken by Orren and it reminds me so much of how much fun we all had.


When was the last time you ate chicken? 
Last week.  I made chicken/pasta soup.  


The songs you listened to recently?
I Finallly Found Someone by Barbra Streisand and Bryan Adams.  I loved the film, Mirror Has to Faces and it was on TV a few days ago....so I thought I'd listen to the 'theme song' on youtube.




What were you thinking as you were doing this?
I need to sleep.  Yes, I do.  I really do.  ZZZzzzzzzzzzz.

Do you have nicknames?
Yes

I am called:
Len by everybody
Leni by family and closest friends

Tag five bloggers and state the reason why:



Theresa Milstein - because she's a lovely friend.  It always makes me smile when I get an email from her.  She is always so kind and helpful to me, always has the answer to my questions.  She's a great friend and a talented writer. I heart her! 


LindyLou Mac - for all her book reviews which I love and look forward to reading.


Glynis Smy - she's been a blogger friend since I began blogging and I did not even realise she's always there to visit my blog, even when I had no followers!


Lisa Stowe - she believes in me and my writing and that is huge.  Her words of encouragement are something I hold on to when I get really down and I feel like I write crap.


Jessica Bell - tagging you back, Jess! She's such an inspiration to me.  I cannot think of anything she can't do - she writes novels, poetry, she sings (and she's got an angelic voice!) and she edits, too! Not to mention her good looks! I think when the Universe distributed talent and all things good, she was in the front row!

The winner of the Book Give-away is Ycel Zaleta!!!  I will be posting/mailing the book soon! Congratulations!

It was fun reading this! And don't worry...I think we all go through phases with commenting, out of neccessity. (Or maybe I am just making myself feel better...)

Theresa Milstein said...

Glad your temperature is normal. No fever?

Awww, I heart you. Thanks, Len!

It's nice to learn why you choose the other tagged bloggers. Jessica is one talented chick!

Congratulations to the winner of the book.

I love your wallpaper, especially since it has special memories for you. And I love that song too! Haven't heard it in FOREVER so it was really nice to have this little blast from the past :)

This was fun to read through! Now to go read through the people you've tagged. :D

And that wallpaper was basically awesome.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

Donea Lee said...

Hi Len! I'm with you on the commenting...such a slacker lately! I can only hope our followers remember how much we heart them ~ :)

And I love The Mirror has Two Faces, too! Streisand rocks!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I've been struggling with reading blogs too...UGH! Vacation, bashed up toes, respiratory infections more vacations...Cute post Len!

Michelle Fayard said...

Maybe you were just building the suspense before answering the questions you were tagged with? :)

I’m glad to be a new follower and have left a response to your comment on Bird’s-eye View at http://michellefayard.blogspot.com/2011/07/getting-blog-comments-to-work-for-you.html.

Glynis said...

Thanks for tagging me, Len. Good to read more about you! I am here in-between power-cuts.

I sneak in and out of your blog without you noticing. LOL x

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Jessica Bell said...

hahaha! You are the sweetest thang ;o)

Lydia K said...

@Faith - I usually go over and comment straight away on my commenters then visit the ones I follow. But it's not possible to do this all. I can only comment on a certain number.

@Theresa - Absolutely no fever, haha! Thank you for being such a great friend :)

@Old Kitty - Thank you for always being one of the first to comment :)

@Ali - I sometimes go on youtube and listen to old songs. Right now I'm obsessed with Toni Braxton's How could an Angel break my Heart and Breathe Again. LOL.

@Devin - Thank you. I'm glad you liked the wallpaper. It's a great place to visit, too.

@LindyLou - Thank you. No need to worry about not posting the same. I've tagged friends that I like for the reasons I mentioned. I like your book reviews!

@Donea Lee - Yes, I hope the same, too.

Len Lambert said...

@Sharon - Were you the one who had bashed up toes and a respiratory infection? Oh poor you. Hope you feel better soon. Hugs!

@Michelle - Thanks Michelle, happy to be following you too! :)

@Glynis - Hope the power cuts get lesser. Thank you for always visiting :) I appreciate the 'lurking' too :)

@Hilary - Oh I recommend the film! It's a feel-good, funny film! :)

@Jessica - Thank you! Mwah!

@Lydia - You're so sweet, thank you! :)

Len, thanks for the tag, and even more so for the compliments. That's a two way street; you support me with writing, too. And I love our long distance phone conversations? It's funny how all our talk circles back to writing eventually. Hope you're getting some rest.

Talli Roland said...

Loved reading this and getting to know more about you, Len!

I'm glad your temperature is normal!

L'Aussie said...

Hi Len. Thanks for finding the time to visit my blog then. I've been away for a month anyway! I enjoyed your tag. This is a fun one and I've had to do it twice! Don't take the 'unfollow' personally. Some bloggers stop blogging which leads to them disappearing. It is pretty hard to 'unfollow.' I know. I've tried to do it sometimes and gave up. What the heck?!

Stephen Tremp said...

Its great to know you a little better. Thanks for sharing a bit more of your life with us!

Lisha @ DeLovely Life said...

I love your screensaver. I'm sure it was an amazing trip. And don't worry. People un-follow for the most random reasons. And congratulations on your interview!
