* AWARDS *
Alex J. Cavanaugh gave me the Soulmates Award!
1. Choose five followers/commenters that 'get' you
2. Write something fake (preferably not too mean) about them
3. Link to them, and link back to this post to comment your receipt of the award.
(Alex said I secretly hate cats - so not true!)
I decided to pick on the boys for this one and pass the award to:
Marvin at The Old Silly who really does look like Adam Atom
Stephen at Breakthrough Blogs who didn’t even finish high school
Jamieson at Jamieson Wolf who secretly hates romance
Lee at Tossing it Out who is secretly laughing at those in the A-Z Challenge. (Well played, Lee, well played)
Following the Whispers was sweet enough to give me the Beautiful Blogger Award!
According to the rules, I am to provide a link to the person who gave me the award (see above), name seven things you might not know about me, and pass the award along to seven other wonderful bloggers.
1- I really hate making phone calls. Residual trauma from working at UPS and having to call people to tell them their package was lost, damaged, destroyed - we don’t know where it is!
2 - I bleached my hair for seventeen years. (Maybe someday I’ll post a photo of blonde Spunky!)
3 -I like snakes and bugs, but cockroaches and centipedes freak me out!
4 - I am a Bath & Body Works fanatic - my husband claims he should’ve purchased stock in the company.
5 - I hate sharp casual - not quite dressy enough to feel classy, too dressy to feel comfortable.
6 - My first real roller coaster scared the crap outta me! (I got over it, though.)
7 - When swimming, I prefer to hang out underwater, as I imagine that’s what floating in space would feel like.
And I'd like to add for those who don't know, I don't use photos here from the Internet - 99.9% I took myself.
I pass this award to:
Jai at Jai Joshi’s Tulsi Tree
Michelle at Redheaded Book Child
Elana at Elana Johnson
Nancy at Room with a View
Rayna at Coffee Rings Everywhere
Eleni at La Femme Readers
Steph at Steph the Bookworm
* LOL CATS CAPTION WINNER *
Alex J. Cavanaugh - "Nope, you're ugly from this angle, too."
That is so totally what Hobbes would be thinking... she was all cattitude!
* PHOTO OF THE DAY *
Wishing all of you a blessed Easter!
And Hobbes just wishes I'd take those ears off her head!
