Okay, yes... I love getting awards. I will probably (okay, definitely) never stand in front of a glitzy crowd full of cleavage and cumberbunds waving a gold-tone statuette and crying "You like me! You really like me!" but I still can't help but jump up and down a little and clap my hands when an award lands on my blog - especially from someone I enjoy reading so much myself! So rather than thanking the Academy or my mother, I'd like to thank Karisma for thinking of me.
And in addition to this award, she's tagged me with an Alphabet Tag. Here goes:
Attached or single? Attached (married 13.5 years)
Best friend? I'd have to say my Mom. She's the first one I think to call when something happens or I need a shoulder to cry on.
Cake or Pie? Devil's Food Cake and Lemon Meringe Pie (see how I got around that???)
Day of Choice? Sunday. There's tai chi in the morning and a big newspaper with coffee.
Essential Item? Reading glasses.
Favorite color? Blue
Gummy bears or worms? NEITHER! I hate gummy candy with a passion.
Hometown? Same place I live now. One day it will be somewhere else.
Indulgence? Sleeping in as long as I can. Closely followed by a reiki session.
January or July? January. I hate the heat.
Kids? Yes. One star in my universe.
Life isn't complete.... without a cat.
Marriage Date? The same as my son's birthday! And graduations around here. We don't plan well for events that need hotel rooms for people...
Number of Brothers and Sisters? 5 younger brothers
Oranges or Apples? Apples. Definitely apples.
Phobias? Things that spin (ceiling fans, propellers, wheels, merry-go-rounds...)
Quote? "No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved, you know?" Mr. Incredible in The Incredibles
Reasons to Smile? Number one reason is my boy. Number two is my husband. Numbers three through 7 are my cats and dog. What else do you really need?
Season of Choice? Fall. It's SUCH a relief when summer is over!
Tag Seven People? Sandy, Michelle, Mindy/Jenny, Margaret/Stephanie, HoosierGirl, Nikki, and finally, Liane! ALL of you get the Brilliante WebBlog Award - and we get to hear a little more about you. I can't wait!!!!
Unknown Fact? Um. Unknown. To whom? If it's to me - well, I can't answer this. If it's to you - let me think... I absolutely loved the TV series "Call to Glory" and "Touched by an Angel"
Vegetable? Yellow squash
Worst habits? Biting nails, scratching (which wouldn't seem to go together...)
XRay or Ultrasound? Ultrasound, definitely. Followed by MRI.
Your favorite food? Fried chicken. Hmmm... what's for dinner?
Zodiac sign? Aries - the ram, and in the Chinese zodiac, I'm a Tiger.
So... you any the wiser?
