Zombie Chicken Award

My good friend and fellow Dregstonian, Linda Fern, and her colleagues in blogdom, Icha and Rachel, from the lovely and talented Becoming Jane Fansite have made my day by nominating this here blog for the Zombie Chicken Award.

[Cue drumroll...]

Taken from Becoming Jane Fansite, who lifted it from My Pride and Prejudice, 'The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.'

I am spreading the love by choosing the following most excellent blogs to receive the Zombie Chicken Award:

Tabletalk - the new must read for me, everyday Ann has something interesting to share.

Gofita's Pages - books, movies, classics, trendy, Heather covers it all in a fun, classy way.

Echostains - continues to amaze me with brilliant visuals and insightful prose.

Fly High -Literature, art, movies and much more to fly high! We have scarily similar taste in books. Love it.

Books and Bards - the newest blog I'm reading. Fresh, interesting...you have to check out her Austen matchmaking bit.


  1. My gracious thanks, Jane. I'm off to visit the other recepiants.

  2. Wow, thank you so much! I'm glad you are enjoying my blog!

  3. It's nice to see this spreading around the web like a lovely virus. At myprideandprejudice.com we can't actually claim credit for this quoted description of the award, since we lifted it too! I'm not sure where it came from originally, but we were too scared of the zombie chickens not to include it!
