Pumpkin’s chest swelled with pride after he learned that he’d been nominated for a one lovely blog award’ by the wonderfully talented Whimsyink. Don’t worry, he isn’t going to get all big headed about his blog or this award; then again, his head is a pumpkin and pretty big already!


Exciting times interwebbers! I’ve been nominated for the One Lovely Blog award by the exceedingly talented Whimsyink over at lestwentytwo. If you haven’t checked out her work already, get over there now and have a look, she writes a really fun little three panel comic called ‘Today I learned’ that will definitely give you a chuckle (unless your humour gland is broken); what’s more her illustrations are consistently great to look at and always look wonderfully effortless (jealous!). Anywho, thanks a million to Whimsyink for this nomination, I’m really very flattered and glad that people are enjoying the pumpkin seeds I’m planting here!

Now for the rules of acceptance:

-Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
-Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
-Nominate fifteen or so bloggers you admire.
-Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them.

Ok, seven (possibly) unknown things about myself:

1.  I’m an amateur (we’re talking really amateur) cellist

2.  I’ve been studying Philosophy for 7 years now, I’ll hopefully be ‘Dr. Pumpkin’ soon

3.  I can’t drive (I cycle everywhere); which leads me on to

4.  I’m absolutely mad for cycling, love long hilly rides

5.  Also running, I love it. I’m into minimalist running too so don;t be surprised if you see a Pumpkin headed man running round barefoot

6.  I’m 5’6″ (short for a human, tall for a Pumpkin)

7.  I’m a quarter Italian

On to the blogs I’d like to nominate:

1. Kelly Graham, Artist; lovely blog with some really wonderful artwork

3. Mydrawsomething; This guy is seriously good at drawsomething; like unbelievably good

4. Man-made Murphy; Very professional looking webcomic start up; definitely one to watch here

5. Pypys’ Little Pages; a fun cartoon about a little fellow with a rather large… well see for yourself. Unfortunately Pypys has been marked as mature content (you’ve been warned!) so its up to us to put him about… so to speak.

Thanks again to Whimsyink (this nomination made my week!) and to all my readers. Running this blog is a world of fun, but it’s made all the better by your visits and interaction. I’ll try to keep it up.
