Thanks for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Quick thanks to Kasia—and Cassie, whose post I missed yesterday!—for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award! How nice!

The rules:

Thank the award-givers and link back to them in your post(Here’s the link to Cassie’s post, too.)
Share seven things about yourself (see below).
Pass this award along to 15 or 20.
Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Here we go!

  1. I’m a cat lover! I have three babies right now: Mittens, Buffy, and Milo.
  2. I have a scar on my forehead from cracking my head open as a kid. Major ouch!
  3. My favorite book ever is A Wizard of Earthsea.
  4. One of my all-time favorite movies is Castaway. (I love Tom Hanks.)
  5. I contributed to a magazine recently. More on that later!
  6. If you’ve read my post on The Secret World of Arrietty then you know how much I love Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli films. The best one in my opinion? Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro.
  7. I’m writing a science fiction/fantasy novel and my first book rolled into one. I’m a very, very busy bee!

Also: I’m super crazy about Batman.

Below are fifteen great blogs. I’ll work on sending out comments later today! Thanks again to the wonderful Kasia and Cassie! :)
