Sweet Blogging Award Nomination


I would like to thank Barbara Brady  at http://curatorofcuriosities.com/

for nominating my blog thesoundoflaughter.wordpress.com for the Sweet Blogging Award (Sorry it took a few days to get this up!)

The rules to this award (for me and all nominees) are:

  1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated them
  2. Answer five super sweet questions
  3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in your blog post
  4. Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other bloggers
  5. Notify your nominees on their blog

The 5 sweet questions.

Cookies or Cake. When it comes to sweets I have to ration them and if I am going to cheat I have to go big and go cake. With cookies it is easy to drag it out and go way past my allocation.

Chocolate or Vanilla. Really ? It’s a choice? Chocolate of course.

Favorite Sweet Treat.  Any item that combines Raspberry and Chocolate (Ice Cream, Candy , raw chocolate syrup and raspberries etc).  The person that thought “I wonder what raspberry and chocolate together would taste like?”  should have gotten the nobel peace prize.  Yes even before the person that thought the same about chocolate and peanut butter.

When do you crave sweet things the most? After a long hard work day. I guess its comfort food and a reward.  Its two , two things in one. Kind of like chocolate and raspberry.

Sweet Nick Name.   Is it a nickname if we give it to ourselves? I think my nickname should honor my heritage and therefore be a combination of terms stemming from my Polish/Irish background. I am combining the Polish word for chocolate and the name of a fine Irish whiskey . Czekolada Jamison  (pronounced Check-o-lada or Check-o-wada depending on how authentic a pronunciation you’re going for).  In fact I like it so much I may make it  my Nom de Plume.  It also works as a great band name. They would probably list Devotchka as one of their influences. Note: Chocolate Raspberry in Polish would be Czekolada Malinka but that would be a slight towards the Irish part of me. It also would make a good band name. But the band would have to involve a lot of accordion and would be relegated to the Wedding/Polka circuit.

My Nominations: So I want to point out that I have only been involved in this blog community for less than a month so my list is from the blogs aware to me in that short time.

Without further ado, ok maybe a little do, my nominations for the Sweet Blogging Award ….drumroll please…
