So...Stylish Blogger

So...anyone miss me?
Ya - sorry about the lack of blogging.
Not really sure what that's all about, except that I have just been doing other things and life seems to just keep on going.

During my short blogging sabbatical, my dear friend Ginger awarded me a Stylish Blogger Award over at her blog Ginger Unplugged.

Thank you Ginger! I have mentioned her blog before and how much I love it, but have I mention how much I love her? Ginger is one of the most amazing people I know. She is an incredibly talented writer (whose published, by the way), inspiring mother, great friend, and pretty much good at everything she does. I look up to her in so many ways and feel lucky to call her my friend.

And I absolutely love her blog. She always makes me laugh.

So, thank you Ginger, for awarding me the Stylish Blogger Award, even though my blog really isn't that stylish :)

Along with the award comes a few responsibilities:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to five blogging buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

Since it's been awhile since I've shared random facts about me, this should be a little fun.

#1) Once I heard that a sobriety test was to sing the alphabet backward. I practiced and practiced just in case I ever was pulled over and accused of drunk driving. I wasn't confident that I would pass the test sober.

#2) My favorite candy bar is a Strawberry Charleston Chew. They're hard to find, so whenever I come across one I feel the need to buy it. Just in case.

#3) I do not like cats. I have a strange feeling that they are plotting to take over the world and I am not comfortable with that.

#4) I have been hypnotized. In fact, the hypnotist convinced me that I was Britney Spears and succeeded to get me to sing and dance on stage in front of my high school student body. This is proof that I was in fact hypnotized.

#5) I can play all of the string instruments. I can only play one well.

#6) When I was a kid, and asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said an architect (?). Not really sure why, but that was my profession of choice until high school. Then I wanted to be a professional athlete. Seems a bit backwards, no?

#7) I tried out for my high school girls' ice hockey team. After the first day, I realized that not knowing how to ice skate was a huge problem and decided to go with indoor lacrosse instead.

So...that's it. I know they are a bit random, but I was trying to think of things not on my list of 200 things. I was too lazy to read through them all again, so I'm not sure if I repeated or not. Either way, it was fun to dig up so random facts.

And the five blogs I'm passing this award on to are:

At Full Capacity
Who Dub It
Copper Kettles
Kel's Version of it All
Farmer Freitas' Wife

...and anyone else who feels like participating! If you do, put a link in the comments!

So, that explains why I've been missing what I've been missing. When thing lighten up a bit and you get back around to it, bring your worded wonder over to POETIC BLOOMINGS where Marie Elena and I are amassing a great group of poets in a creative and inspired environment. I'd love to see you there!
