I just received my very first blog award today!
Trisha Wilson, author of the Romantic Suspense novel, Daring to Trust (Indigo Girls) nominated my blog for the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award.
Thank you Trisha!!
I can get behind that! This blog is sweet and sassy (just like me, LOL!)
Anyway, here are the rules:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 10 deserving blog buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.
Okay, here are 7 random facts about moi:
1. I like to crush up saltines in a glass, pour milk over them and then eat them. This is a weird *ahem* delicacy passed down on my mother's side of the family. (We also like milk poured over crumbled corn bread).
2. I snore, and so does my cat. Some nights I'll doze off while watching TV and my husband says that I and my cat are snoring in stereo (hopefully, not surround sound!)
3. When I was growing up, The Graduate would play on TV at least once a year (just like The Wizard of Oz). I love The Graduate. I've seen it at least 30 times (but not in about five years now). However, I can still quote lines from it. A scene that still tickles me is when Ben tells his parents he's going to marry Elaine, and when they start congratulating him and asking when, he confesses that he hasn't asked her yet and that she won't speak to him. His father tells him it all seems a little half-baked to him. Ben's response, "No, it's completely baked." I love that line. I love his deadpan, self-assured delivery. Great scene.
4. My favorite band is REM. Unfortunately, they broke up this past year.
One of my favorite songs of theirs is Exhuming McCarthy. I also love their cover of the Pylon song, Crazy.
5. The one and only time I tried to water ski, I shredded ligaments in my ankle so badly I was on crutches for weeks. I never attempted it again.
6. I'm a big, huge fan of an up-and-coming poet named Sara Lier. My favorite poem of hers is entitled Coney Island Elegy.
7. I enjoy reading books on my Android phone even more than I do my Kindle OR paperbacks! I use two different free apps: Aldiko (ePub) and Kindle for Android. They both allow for notes, bookmarking and hi-lites. Cool huh?
