You Like Me... You Really, Really Like Me

So, I'm embarrassed to admit, that Kaye from RandomWAHMThoughts gave me the Cute's Blogger Award in December... those of you that have been reading for a while can imagine why I didn't feel up to posting it at the time (see category: on a pale horse ). It was, and is very appreciated. Thank you, Kaye!

Then, Friday, Joan from The Retirement Chronicles won her very first blogging award, the Honest Scrap award, which, in my opinion, is very well deserved! And, lo and behold, she passed it on to me! Thank you Joan!

After which, I could hold out no longer, I had to claim my awards and pass them on to those seriously deserving blogs I have found... I apologize for laggin' the world y'all, and I thank you for deeming me worthy, of two more awards ~ I feel so special, but to keep myself from getting a big head (in the bad way *wink, wink*) I'll only admit to being special in the short-bus sense...

Luckily for me, the terms of both awards are the same... 10 things about yourself and pass the award on to 10 people each... Well, I'm a three kind of girl, so I'm doing 9 and 9... I know, I'm a Maverick in a maverickey sort of way because it's my blog, and Yes I Can...

First of all, the skinny on me...

1. I hate getting on the down escalators. I don't know why, but I've been damaged in this capacity since childhood... to the extent of having strangers lift me and place me on one of the fully formed steps (at some mall) when I was like 5 years old. BTW, up escalators don't bother me in the least.

2. My spice cabinet is pathetic; consisting of only salt, pepper, garlic powder, poultry seasoning and cinnamon... and I'm pretty sure I'm out of garlic powder cause I've been grating cloves instead. If you haven't clued in yet, I'm a really plain eater.

3. The only John Wayne movie I can stand to watch is The Quiet Man. I own it, but can't sit through any other one... not sure why, just is.

4. I can not play video games. I totally suck. I was OK at Pong once-upon-a-time, but that last statement alone says it all.

5. I sing in my car when I'm alone. I know all the words, but couldn't carry a tune with a handle. I don't care. I sing loud and with feeling as if I'm singing to end world hunger. I envision myself on stage singing to the cheering throngs as I do this.

6. I have discovered the Flair application on Facebook, and am hopelessly addicted. Not surprising, because before I found Flair, I could get lost in the greeting card aisle for hours...

7. I am way better on paper. I can write a witty, funny, easy to read post from first letter to final publish in under three hours, but in person, I'm the one over in the corner, hardly talking to anyone, and when I do, it's rare that I'm in any way funny, witty or easy to understand.

8. I've had, and wear faithfully, the same sneakers for 5 years. They're from Payless of all places, and they're men's sneakers. I've looked, and been unable to find another pair that fit me properly... I wear a women's size 13 wide; it's either the men's shoes or the boxes at this point.

9. I talk to my sister at least 6 times a week. We're now closer than two sheets of toilet paper. When we were growing up, we fought constantly and never, ever though this time in our lives would come; even though we were told we'd be best friends someday.


OK, and now the good part ~ I'm passing these awards on to...





Congratulations and YAY YOU to all the winners... and for your "rules" tell us in list form some stuff about you, and hey, keep the ball rolling and pass 'em on to those you think deserving...

Thanks so much girlfriend.

Also: from one Flair addict to another: that's what it's there for.

I had one sweet move in Pong where I'd skim the very top edge and it was like Wham! Well, more like W - h-a-a-a-a-m-m-m.

You are a DOLL!! Now, where's the champagne? Waiter??

I could not sing if you paid me a MILLION BILLION dollars.

I DO sing, everyday in kindergarten. It's just that I don't SING WELL. I'M AWFUL. Thank God the kids don't give a shit.

AW, thanks so much I'm flattered! ;))
