It's award time in the blogging world! Well, it's always award time, and my sweet friend Gill of Realweegiemidget Reviews has nominated me for another Blogger Recognition Award and another Sunshine Blogger Award. Thanks so much, Gill! Two awards mean two sets of rules, of course, and we're going to start with the Blogger Recognition … Continue reading Recognition Redux

Five Years Later

Taking Up Room is five years old. Apparently in the blogging world that's sort of a feat. Oh muh word. I'm not exactly sure how to commemorate this occasion because 2020 has been so weird, but quite honestly, blogging has been one of the few things that's felt normal. Actually, scratch that. I've come up … Continue reading Five Years Later

And the Blogosphere Recognizes…

Really, though, my sweet friend, Gill of Realweegiemidget Reviews nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award, which I had never heard of but I think is a cool concept. Thanks, Gill, you're awesome! Like any good blogging award, there are certain niceties to be … Continue reading And the Blogosphere Recognizes…

And Then There Were Three…Liebsters

Unlike Hollywood, blogger awards season is year-round, and lo and behold, I've won my third Liebster, courtesy of the lovely Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews. Thank you so much, Gill! It's always nice to be appreciated and to pass it on. If anyone is unitiated as to the responsibilities of accepting a Liebster Award, the recipient's … Continue reading And Then There Were Three…Liebsters

Live And Let Binge

Here we are again. The lockdown is pretty much over. Social distancing isn't really a thing unless someone's at a protest (or something more destructive, and in that case, all the shame on them). Worship services are finally starting to come back. Sorta. There's almost no point in going to meeting if there's no singing … Continue reading Live And Let Binge

The Binge Goes On

Aaaaand we're still quarantined in California. I won't give my opinion of certain people in charge of my state except to say, "Question everything," and "Consider the source." We do have light at the end of the tunnel, of course, but staying inside is definitely having its effects. A couple of weeks ago my dad … Continue reading The Binge Goes On

Bingeing In the Time of Coronavirus

Hi, all, hope everyone had a good Easter! I originally was supposed to go back to work tomorrow, but heh heh, no, I'm not, because I got temporarily laid off until the schools go back to normal. Whenever that is. Of all the states in the United States, California's among those which have gotten hit … Continue reading Bingeing In the Time of Coronavirus

Then There Were Two

Longfellow once wrote, "To have joy, one must share it, for happiness was born a twin." I wonder what Longfellow would say about Leibster Awards, of which I now have two, thanks to the sweet ladies at Pure Entertainment Preservation Society. Thank you so much, Tiffany and Rebekah! As always, accepting a Liebster requires the … Continue reading Then There Were Two

Just like the first time … Continue reading The Sunshine Blogger Award, Part Two

The Sunshine Blogger Award

OK, I know I said I was going to post something for Gabriela's Daphene du Maurier Blogathon today, but that was before I got nominated by Sally of 18 Cinema Lane for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Wasn't that nice of her? Sally's wonderful blog can be found here. Thank you, Sally! As always, this sort … Continue reading The Sunshine Blogger Award

My Five Flaming Hotties (Plus A Bonus!)

Surprise tag post time... A couple of years ago, Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews and Catherine at Thoughts All Sorts did a Five Flaming Hotties tag, and Gill decided to resurrect it. She's tossed the idea around a few times on Twitter, so I thought I'd have a list ready. I think it speaks for itself, … Continue reading My Five Flaming Hotties (Plus A Bonus!)
