A New Award

Brigitte from Poohpees World has nominated me for a Blog Award! Thank you! Make sure you head over to Brigitte's blog to read her story.

I have to say that I love these awards. First, I love that people think enough of my blog to come here, read, and take the time to leave comments. You folks make my day! Second, these awards all seem to come with questions or requests for information, and I just love talking about myself!

The award rules require that I share seven bits of information about myself. I have thought long and hard about these answers! Here they are:

  1. I love cats. I think cats are the best pets ever. My cat was the funniest, happiest, most loving pile of fur and affection that I can ever imagine having in my life. I miss him like the dickens. There might be another one in my future... the near future!
  2. I hate mushrooms, olives, and spiders. Two of these I'll spit out and gag a little afterward. The third one makes me run screaming like a girl. No, I'm not a girl, I'm tough. But those hairy legged, beady eyed monsters from hell make me scream like a precocious six year old pageant contestant who just realized her mother forgot to pack the fake eyelashes.
  3. I love words. Reading, writing, crafting strings of words that convey messages... I love the English language and believe all of its native speakers should learn how to use it to its fullest potential. Actually, I believe everyone should be able to use their own native language properly. Language is a human gift, and we should revel in it.
  4. I love the beach. It doesn't matter where the beach is, what time of year it is, or
    even what the weather is like. I love beaches. I can spend hours looking at all the things that have washed in with the tide.
  5. I love driving really fast. I'm too much of a goody two shoes to do it very often, but someday I would like to hop in a high end German auto, open it up on the Autobahn and let it fly
  6. Hunting for parking spaces makes me crazy, as does bumper to bumper traffic. I'm talking nuts... "Kathy Bates-I'm older and I have more insurance-insane".
  7. I am afraid of caves. Caves, geologically speaking, are one of the most intensely incredible things on earth. Absolutely gorgeous and mysterious. I love poring over photographs of caves. But..Me? Go in one? Not on your freaking life. Nope, uh uh. Millions of tons of rock. Smoosh. Nope, not going to happen.

As with any award that someone so thoughtfully passes my way, this award is up for grabs. Take it, post it, and leave a comment or send an email that gives me a link to your post. I'll repost it here with a message. Thank you for the award and thank you for reading!

Here are the other blogs that were nominated for this award. Stop by and visit them! Everyone has a story to tell.
