Thanks so much to Megan of Thoughts of a Future Author for nominating me!
Okay, so the rules for this award are as follows:
1. Display the award on your blog. (I’m counting this post as ‘displaying’ since I don’t have an awards page.)
2. Announce your win in a post and link back to the blogger who nominated you with it.
3. Present 15 other bloggers with the award.
4. Drop a comment on their blog to let them know they’ve been nominated.
5. Post 7 interesting facts about yourself.
Seven Possibly Interesting Facts About Me
1. I am going to run out of interesting facts about myself if you people keep being generous and nominating me for awards!
2. My skin is so fair that I sunburn even through SPF 50 sunscreen.
3. According to family legend, I am a descendent of Æthelred the Unready on my mother’s side.
4. No one ever pronounces my last name right on the first try.
5. When I was invited to teach two classes on ancient Egypt at the local school, the best part of it was the expressions on the kids’ faces when I described the mummification process. That made all the hard work I put into the presentation worth it.
6. Ever since I picked it out of a bargain bin, I’ve been addicted to the PC version of Luxor.
7. One of the best Christmas presents I’ve had in a while is the little notebook I got from a friend in which I keep track of the books I read for my reading challenge.
