One Lovely Blog Award!!

I opened up my blog today and was so excited to see that the lovely ladies, Myne Whitman, KitKat's Tales, and A-9ja-Great had given me the One Lovely Blog Award. Yay!! This is the first award The Corner Shop has had so I’m really excited about it. It’s so encouraging to know that some people actually like my blog. I jumped into this blog with both legs and a blindfold, so you can imagine how appreciative I am of my followers, readers, all of you who bother to comment, and the lovely creative people who let me feature them!
This Is Me :)
Anyway, the deal is, I accept the award, link the person(s) who gave it to me, tell you 7 random things about me, give it to 15 blogs I have just discovered, and tell them about it. I especially like this cause I've never had the chance to tell you anything about me. So, here goes:
  1. I love rain. I wish I had the courage to run outside and dance in the rain. I live in an apartment building now, so I’m saving this for when I’ve got the only house in the compound lol
  2. I love dance movies and dance TV shows. As long as it’s got choreographed dance, I’ll watch it (even if the acting sucks)
  3. I don’t like confrontation; I’d rather walk away, and calm down. I always think of witty stuff to say after the argument, and this pisses me off even more *sigh*
  4. I don’t like romance and drama movies. Give me thrillers (like Taken), sci-fi (like The Matrix), fantasy (like Pirates of the Caribbean’s), and horror (like Jeepers Creepers) any day. 
  5. People always assume that I’m a computer geek, meanwhile I know squat about computers apart from Microsoft Word.
  6. For some reason, people always stop me to ask directions
  7. I smile a lot. I don’t know why. I even got a Miss Smile Award in secondary school prom night. People were getting awards like best style and Miss Command (our school) and I was getting Miss Smile. Kill Me Now!
So that’s it! Now I’ll tag some awesome blogs I’ve found in Blogsville. A lot of them have been around for a while, but they’re new discoveries to me. They may have already gotten the award, but I’m still going to tag them: Ginger's Blog, The Pet Projects, G.R.I.P, Fashion Phoenix, Buttercup, Chic Lounge, Becoming A Doctor, Chic Therapy, A Nigerian In Diaspora, Looking Glass Of An Immigrant, Neks2U, Unsung Dots, Chizy's-Spyware, The Color Couture, and  Modern African Cuisine. Guys, just take the award from my sidebar.

You all give me such a fun time here. Thank you!
