My email inbox is an abyss. If I don’t respond immediately, I’m likely to either think that I did, or forget I ever received the email. Two months ago Kate Cardon Parish awarded this blog the Versatile Blogger Award. Her email arrived during the comment blitz after WordPress Freshly Pressed one of my posts and was promptly buried in all those email notices.
Recently, Hannah Fergesen awarded this blog the Irresistibly Sweet award. Both rules for these awards state that I must share 7 random facts about myself and pass the award on to 15 other blogs. I’ll combine the rules, meaning I’ll reveal only 7 facts, not 14, and share them with only 15 bloggers, not 30. So, read the enthralling tidbits about me and then go visit Kate and Hannah’s excellent blogs. Then, visit the blogs listed below. Or be rebellious and do none of the above.
- I don’t like the taste of coffee … in any form.
- I get anxious when I sweat.
- The first book I ever checked out of a public library was A Mouse in the House. (Not the book currently in print.)
- I have seen a ghost.
- By the age of 26, I was the mother of four boys.
- I can’t swim.
- I’ve worn the same shade of nail polish on my toes for 38 years. It’s by Revlon, and they change the color name from time to time.
Now aren’t you glad you stopped by my blog today? I mean, really, how could you have lived the rest of your life not knowing those facts about me?
Okay, I’m supposed to pass these awards on to 15 blogs, but I know some of you already have these awards or don’t do “fun” posts. If so, ignore the rules and just consider this a shout out to your blog. And I’ll add one extra for luck. New and old friends, in no particular order:
- Kayla Olson
- Michelle Davidson Argyle
- Christa Polkinhorn
- T.A. Olivia
- Natasha Drew
- Jennifer Neri
- Laura Best
- Amanda Hoving
- Cathryn Grant
- Christi Craig
- Trisha Sutton
- Kasie West
- Candice Kennington
- J.C. Hart
- Heather Simone
- Judy Croome

Ohh, thank you, Linda. I love that you have used the same nail polish for so many years. It’s funny how we find things we like and that’s it. I’m that way with my lipstick. It has to be the same one or I won’t wear it. lol. I need to go think up 7 facts about myself now. hmmm? This could be interesting. 🙂
I’m sure your facts will be more interesting than mine, Heather. 🙂 And yes, when you find the perfect shade, why change?
Aww, thanks for the award! I’m really interested to know what that nail polish is, by the way. 🙂
LOL well, I haven’t looked for the polish yet this year. The bottle I have is over a year old and was called Spice at that time.
Fun! I’m just plowing through email and blogs after being on the road for the past two weeks and it will take me a while to catch up with everything…
too am interested in your nail polish.
Oh, I hope you brought back lots of wonderful anecdotes, Natasha! 🙂
Aw – thanks! What a nice cap to a lovely week. I was gifted with a little unscheduled surprise time with the hubbie. Needless to say, I’ve neglected email and such, but I’m catching up now.
I remember the first book I selected on my own at the bookstore, even which bookstore. But, I don’t remember the first book I ever checked out on my own either at the school or public libraries. It is interesting that both of our memories, although different, are the same because they involve a first choice experience.
How nice that you had a surprise last week, T.A. I wondered why you were “missing”. 🙂
My family was not a bookish one. I don’t remember buying or owning any books until I was an adult. No, wait, I bought John Lennon’s books as a teen. Anyway, the library paid a big role in my life.
