My new friend Valerie honored and surprised me with a Beautiful Blogger Award. I am incredibly grateful for this gesture! I am grateful that anyone reads my stuff at all, let alone finds it award-worthy.
To collect my award, I’m told I must divulge some information. Here are my instructions:
■ List 7 random things about yourself.
■ Answer the 7 questions (just copy and paste, and delete my answers.)
■ Nominate 7 other bloggers you think deserve the award (and let them know about the nomination.)
Before I proceed, I offer two caveats: first, I am not very interesting. Therefore, my random things are not so much random as they are the most remotely interesting things I could possibly dig up about myself. Try to stay awake.
Second, I cannot nominate 7 bloggers, I can only nominate one, because several of the other blogs that I really enjoy have already received this award, and the others are male, who might take exception to the title of the award. Which gets me to thinking that maybe there should be a companion award for the men folk…How about the Ruggedly Handsome Blogger Award?
My not-so-random facts:
1.I was born in Waterbury, Connecticut and have spent the past 25 years in Florida.
2.I have not read a work of fiction in years. I like history, biographies, memoirs – that type of thing.
3.I’m a Turner Classic Movie junkie. The day we got TCM and a DVR was one of the best days of my life.
4.I’ll eat pretty much anything, except for cole slaw.
5.I’ve lost 20 pounds this year.
6.Favorite movie: The Graduate.
7. I’m 40 years old. The day I brought my first child home from the hospital was the day I turned 34.
Questions for the Nominees:
-What is the neatest place you have ever visited and why?
Sedona, Arizona. It is like being on a different planet.
-If you could only eat one food for a whole year, what would it be?
-Who is (or was) your celebrity crush?
Val Kilmer, circa 1987.
-What genre of movie do you enjoy the most?
Classics. For a long time it was WWII era films, but lately I have been loving the cinema of the 1960’s and early 70’s.
-If there was one thing that you could do that you can’t right now, what would it be and why?
Be a stay-at-home mom.
-Do you have a hobby that you enjoy?
Crocheting…although it’s been a year since I’ve made time for that.
-If you could invite an influential, famous, or just a person you admire over for dinner, who would you invite?
And my nominee:
