My First, Very Own Blog Award!!

So I've just received my first, very own Oh My Blog Award!!!!! *crowd goes insane* I'm so elated to have this honour of receiving it! I might explode with sugary goodness, warmth and happiness! LOL!

I was given the OMB Award by my good friend Jen out yonder at In the Closet With a Bibliophile. Like Jen, I never thought in a million years that I would get something like this! So thank you to Jen for handing it over to me, and Congrats to yourself for receiving it!!

Here are the Rules:

1.) Get really excited that you got the coolest award EVER!! (Already done!)

2.) Choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB Award:
  • Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus.
  • Write about your most embarrassing moment.
  • Write a "Soundtrack of your childhood" post.
  • Make your next blog a "vlog" (video blog). Basically, you're talking to the camera about whatever.
  • Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, make-up, etc.) and post it.

3.) Pass the award on to at least three, but preferably more, awesome bloggers. Don't forget to tell them.

Well, I can tell you right now that my mom is not going to let me drink any wine. Nor will she let me post pictures of myself on here (that also exits out vlogging). I'm not sure I could come up with a soundtrack like Jen wonderfully did, so I'll stick to my most embarrassing moment.

I'm happy to pass this award along to: Cathy at Where You Wish Upon A Star; Heather from Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Books; and Emily at Emily's Reading Room. Congrats to all of the newest OMB Award recipients!

Now, for my most embarrassing moment ever. I actually have two, so enjoy!

(1) I'm in the sixth grade. We're walking down the hall to the bathroom. I'm standing in line, listening to the surrounding gossip, yet minding my own business. Three people in front of me is this guy that's openly obsessed me, but I don't like him. He turns around, breaks between the girls in front of me, and says way too loud, "Got milk?" while looking at my boobs. The girls in front of me turned around with smiles on their faces. I promptly crossed my arms over my chest. If I wasn't so dark, my cheeks would have been blood red. . . .

(2) Seventh grade. (This was a couple of months ago.) I'm at my school's awards night. They have a "red carpet" for us to walk up to the front to receive our awards (plaques, ribbons, etc). My legs are getting a little sore from walking to the front so many times, but every time they call my name, there I am, a huge, victorious grin on my face, walking (and twisting a little) towards the stage. The second-to-last I go up: I'm on the carpet, walking and twisting, and then *POW* I stumble and almost fall flat on my face. Can you spell humilitating? I hope none of the parents got that on video.

So those are my embarrassing moments! The second one wasn't as bad as the first, but my cheeks were glowing red after both :).

gosh the one at the red carpet must've been horrid! and also the 'got milk' how can guys be so stupid?

Zakiya LadyWings said...

LOL! Cathy, I might have turned 3 shades of red! Haha.

Leonor: Yes, it was horrid. But I don't think anyone caught it on camera. :). Yes, also, how can they be so stupid??? LOL!

Kate said...

Congrats Z! Oh, I feel bad about your two embarassing moments. Leo's right guys can be really stupid but if it ever happens again I hope you'll have a snappy comment and or take it as a compliment,lol. Easier said then done I guess.

The red carpet, ooo. It's happened to me before at a haunted house. I tripped over my friends foot when we were running and we, well mainly me, fell flat on our faces and the people in the masks freaked out and took their masks off and were all "are you okay?" it was embarassing but it happens to the best of us. Congrats again! :)

Zakiya LadyWings said...

Thanks Kate!! Oh don't worry about it. The guys still in love with me, but he doesn't act so foolish anymore. IDK. Maybe he got over me. Yes, I think it's easier said than done, really. :).

Wow! I've actually never liked haunted houses. My family thinks that's slow/stupid of me because I love watching Syfy all the time. Were you okay? I mean, that wouldn've hurt me. Or was it ironically some really soft, fluffy carpet or something? LOL! Thanks again, Kate,


Julie said...

Congrats! I thought you'd like to know that since you passed on this award it came to me. Thanks so much!

Emily said...

Wow! Thank you so much Zakiya! I've put your wonderful award on my Award's Page I hope you'll take a look. Thanks again! It was so kind of you to think of me.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
