Blog Birthday Bash

My blog turned one year old on the 14th,
which calls for a monster birthday bash!
Friends (and cake) good! [Photo from Frankensteinia]

To my 110 faboolous followers,
I love you more than zombies love brains!
I also have awards to pass to some of you.

But before I do,
I want to wish a happy belated birthday to Lissa Lycan,
iZombieAutumnforestThe Great White Dope and Justine!

[Had a birthday recently too? Let me know and I'll add you!]

Now without further ado, onto the awards!

First is the Liebster (Dearest in German) Blog Award,
 bestowed upon me by Living Dead Girl Nicole!

The Rules: 
1.) Thank the person who gave it to you and link to their blog.

2.) Pass the award on to 5 blogs with less than 200 followers.

1. Thank you, NicoleYou're dear to me too!

2. These brilliant blogs deserve more followers:

Next is the iDig Your Blog Award,
bestowed upon me by Horror Smorgasbord!

iDig Your Blog Award Protocol:
1 .) Gratefully accept this award. 
2 .) Link to the person you received it from.
3. ) Post 3 interesting facts about yourself.
4 .) Pass this award around to at least 5 blogs you dig. 
5. ) Notify them.

1. I gratefully accept this awesome award!

2. Thank you, Slowdeath77! iDig you too!

3. Three slightly interesting facts about me:

- As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm currently pet free,
(since I live in an apt barely big enough for my bro and me.)
I owned 2 dogs (both female Samoyeds), a black bunny, 
and 4 hermit crabs during my childhood/adolescence though.
I always wanted a cat, but my dad was/is allergic to them.

- My boyfriend proposed to me in a Michael Myers costume...
I wish! He proposed after we watched Halloween in 06 though.
(We broke up in 09, but are working on getting back together.)
I've had the Halloween theme as my ringtone since then,
cause I'm a sentimental ghoul. And I just love the movies!

- I'm an Agent of Strange/Promoter of Emily the Strange.
This involves running a Tumblr blog with fellow Agents.
I also have a rarely used personal Tumblr blog,
which shows my sweeter (yet still spooky) side.
While I'm linking, I have a profile on Halloween Forum too!

4. I dig these 5 blogs and pass the award onto them:

5. I shall notify those fine folks momentarily!

And last but certainly not least,
the coveted Zombie Rabbit Award,
created and bestowed upon me by iZombie!

The Rules:
01.) Give the award up to 10 who you like,
but give a couple the "Next Blog" slider button on top...
so random blogger people can feel the love from a stranger.

[I don't know what a slider button is,
so I'm going to skip that step, sorry.]

02.) Post those you gave the award to,
so fans of your site can see the places you like and Paid It Forward too.

And the award goes to these groovy guys and ghouls:

Picking recipients took me a loooong time,
because there's so many blogs that I adore.
I also wanted to pick ones I haven't before.
Thanks again to everyone who follows me!

The Zombie Walk Giveaway winner will be announced in my next post.

I'm also co-sponsoring a ghoul gift card giveaway at Sweet N Sour Deals,
my friend Jessica's sweet (literally!) new blog!


  1. Woah! Award-a-rama!! Haha! Thank you for my award my lovely Liebster Holly!!

    I loved this post. That picture of Frankie cutting the cake is adorable!! Loved the birthday song, too! And, I love Emily the Strange. I get the calendar each year. She reminds me of myself when I was a kid. Not 13. More like about 5. I was skinny, with the same dark hairstyle, and was often photographed frowning. Haha!

    Happy Birthday to you! (Belatedly) By the way, Zola is on her way. Hopefully she won't take long to reach you, but she is coming all the way from Australia. Just have some brains ready for her when she arrives... in case she's... um... a little hungry after the long journey!

  2. Happy Birthday to your blog! Congrats!

  5. Thanks for the Happy Birthday wishes ~ From both you and the zombies. :) Did you notice how that one zombie who hops into the frame, sounds like Kermit the Frog? Happy blog birthday to you!

  6. Thanks for the award and I appreciate the compliments on the Tura Satana audio clips. I will be doing more clips from some select movies since at least one person liked the idea :) I make them myself and it takes a little work, so again, thanks and keep up your good work here.

    Glad you loved this post! I thought that photo & song were perfect for it!
    And lucky you, looking like Emily! I looked just the opposite, sadly.
