I know. That is twice in one week that I had guest bloggers. However, I'm pretty certain Liam stressed the importance of my absence: eggrolls needed to be procured. Even though I walked all the way up there and the Chinese restaurant was *closed*…I'm still bitter. But not bitter enough that I'm writing off going to get some today.
By the way, someone commented yesterday who did not know what an eggroll was. Once I got past the disappointment that you have never experienced such bliss as an eggroll, I was baffled by it all. Essentially, it's this. Inside of that delicious fried roll of generally cabbage, carrots, sometimes noodles and other deliciousness. They are beautiful. Unless you order them and find out they have meat, which is just the worst thing in the world. So deceiving.
Did I mention that I am currently suffering through my latest battle wound? Also, let it be noted that "battle wound" is code for "what the hell happened to me?" So I woke up the other morning in a rather severe amount of pain and after talking to my aunt, who is more or less a doctor, we determined that I either bruised or slightly cracked one of my ribs, completely inexplicably. I swear I have absolutely no idea how this happened. I just went to sleep and woke up with an injured rib. So. That's just a day in the life of Kayley Hyde, guys. Waking up with injured bones. The usual. Luckily the pain is now mostly restricted to when I cough/sneeze/burst out laughing and no longer limits my breathing, so that's good. It should be healed up in a week or so. Nor real harm done, I suppose.
If you follow me on Twitter, you'll have seen a week or two ago that I mentioned wanting to run for King of the Web in September. This has sort of been a source of stress and anxiety for the past few days because I just don't know if I can do another contest. Running for NextUp was probably my least favourite thing I have ever done on the internet because I cannot and do not enjoy selling myself in any way. I didn't like reminding people to vote, didn't like being open about the fact that I needed money and didn't like feeling that I could not win if I didn't keep badgering people about it. It just sort of sickened me and, at the time, I told myself I'd never do another contest again. However, King of the Web spans over a month, so it's not has high-tension and stressful. In addition, it is sort of a cool idea for a contest and the people who work for KotW seem really awesome. I'm going to a gathering tomorrow in Seattle hosted by them and I'm thinking that I will decide there if I am or am not running. However, I wanted you guys to weigh in. Would you hate me if I ran for another contest? I promise, I wouldn't be annoying about it. If anything, it means more uploads from me so that in the annotations, I can remind people to vote or something. I just wanted to know what you guys thought. As you know, I'm moving to another country and I could really use the money because England is a freaking expensive place to live. So just let me know what you think in the comments and that would be great!
Thanks again to that Dryden kid for his post yesterday and I don't know if you read the comments, Liam, but the people want you back in their lives. Go make a video or something, yeah? It'd be much appreciated by us all. As for everyone else, I'll see you tomorrow for my LAST BEDA POST of August 2011. No idea what to post and I have a really busy day planned, so we shall see. Until then! x
Days til London: 12.
