We won an award! And now we’re passing it along.

March 30, 2011

We’re beyond pumped that the lovely Eleanor at A Life Bewhiskered gave us as a Stylish Blogger Award. (If you don’t read Eleanor’s blog, you should. Her photos are phenomenal and her cats are fantastic.)

To accept this award, we have to share seven facts about ourselves (that you probably don’t know), pass the award on to seven more bloggers and link to the recipients.  These are all fun things and since we LOVE awards, we’re SO participating.

SEVEN FUN FACTS ABOUT THE HUMANS AT CURRENT INSTINCTS

1. We have developed a slight obsession with Mormons, even though none of us are Mormons nor do we plan on becoming Mormons. We just think they’re cool. Blame it on Big Love or The Daybook or Jon Stewart (who we’re also obsessed with).

2. We have a love/hate relationship with Jello shots. As is evident in this photo we took in 2008 at an Ugly Sweater Holiday Fiesta.

Note the horses on Bianca's sweatshirt. CURRENT INSTINCTS 4 LYFE

3.  When we were all interns at the same company, we were the only three people NOT invited to a Pie Day celebration. We spent several days crying to each other via gchat:

Jeff (11/24/08 2:42 PM): I’m just so hurt, that’s all.

Bianca (11/24/08 2:43 PM): And I just feel awkward because you know that tomorrow they will ask us why we didn’t bring in pie and then we will seem so petty. Because we didn’t get invited and didn’t speak up.

Jeff (11/24/08 2:43 PM): This is true. Perhaps we should put this nasty pie business behind us and pretend like we were invited all along. I mean, we’d be living a lie. But I suppose in life, you win some, you lose some.

Well, in the end, we did go to Pie Day. But we only ate pie. We did not bring a pie. Cause we were petty college kids.

4. Speaking of pie, boy do we LOVE eating. We may have mentioned this in one of our posts but you probably don’t know the extent of our love for food.  See the above for confirmation.

5. We love yoga. We love nothing more than stretching, zenning and working out at the end of a long work day stuffed up in our cubes. Namaste.

6. We hate the Kardashians. Seriously, why are people obsessed with them? Even the prettiest one is just okay and her Tweeting skills are HORRIBLE. (Edit: Bianca may or may not hate the Kardashians. She’s on the fence. But she DOES hate their Tweets.)

7. Our preferred method of communication is Twitter.

And now on to the awards!

1. According to Gus. We love hearing about this little guy’s adventures.

2. Doggy Dessert Chef. Because we’re not the only ones who LOVE to eat. Our pups are huge fans of the recipes on this blog.

3. Your Daily Cute. Always guaranteed to make you say, “awwww!!!”

4. My Tail Hurts From Wagging So Much. The blog name alone should make you want to click the link.

5. Off the Leash s.d. So much cat love. How can you go wrong?

6. Animal Conscious Cute pictures of animals for a good cause. What more could you ask for?
