Blog Award!

Monday, August 1, 2011

I was awarded these lovely awards by the awesome Jenn of Frequent Reader, Infrequent Blogger. Please don't feel pressured if I nominate you; it's just a bit of internet fun (and procratination on my part.)

And like all things online the awards come with rules.
1. Tag the person who nominated you as I did above.
2. Give 7 facts about yourself and answer the Favorites Questions
3. Pass these awards to 15 Bloggers.
4. Notify the bloggers of their awards 

Seven Facts About Me
1. In school, I would read my history textbooks cover to cover for fun. I'm still proud of that, actually.

2. I have a large obsession with gladiator sandals. If it is possible and I won't get frostbite, I'm wearing them.

3. I've been dating the most amazing man for 18 months, and I've never been happier. We live together (in sin!!)  and have two terrible puppies together.

4. I've worked exactly three jobs in my life: babysitting, bread vendor (I'd deliver and shelve bread across town in different supermarkets), and for the last seven years (aka since I was 16), I've worked at a grocery store as an assistant manager. I'm going to school and working so I've been there a lot longer than I'd like, but hey I get 5 weeks of paid vacation!

5. I'm the most competitive person I know; I love to win. I've played volleyball for over 14 years, took kempo karate for 8, and used to be big into archery as well. I own a sword, too.

6. I've been diagnosed as mildly OCD. I have to wash my hands every hour, and get dressed a certain way but otherwise, it's not been a huge problem.

7. I have severe scoliosis and had to wear a plastic and metal backbrace 22 hours a day for four years. I got it when I was 12 and was freed at 16.


1. Name your favorite colors.
sapphire blue and black.

2. Name your favorite song.
Oceano - Josh Groban

3. Name your favorite dessert.
cheesecake! God, I love cheesecake. BUT ALSO oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

4. What pisses you off.
Willfull ignorance. People who cut me off and then WALK REALLY SLOWLY. Anyone telling me I cannot do something, especially if my gender is referenced.

5. When you are upset you.
I have a horrid temper :\ so unfortunately, probably the most honest answer would be: yell, freak out for a minute, and then calm down.

6. Favorite Pet.
Oh, dear. I've had myriads of dogs all my life, all of them spectacular. I've had the same cat named Yoda since I was 7. I have no idea what's keeping that poor cat going still. But probably, Penny and Flynn - the two dogs I have now. 

Penny is the black lhasa apso/poodle, Flynn the tan rezdog.

7. Black or White?

8. Biggest Fear?
heights, man. I'm meant to stay on the groud.

9. Best Feature?
I like my hair :-)

10. Everyday attitude:
contemplative. I work alone for most of the day, so I write my book reviews in my head all day.

11. What is Perfection:
Being happy with exactly what you need and who you love.

12. Guilty Pleasures:
romance novels? :]

  1. Thanks Jessie! I'm going to do a post on these very soon. I'm behind on my blogging - too much time figuring out publicity. That sentence doesn't make a ton of sense now that I think about it. :)

  2. Loved this -- congrats on the award! I loved your answers -- you shared some very fun tidbits! Your dogs are adorable; I approve of your love of gladiator sandals!
