I've had a few people give me some awards in the last few months. I very studiously copied them into a folder to pass on when I had the chance. Now I'm getting some time, and I find that I no longer remember who sent me what.
What a chowderhead.
So if you sent me an award and I didn't post and pass it along, it's because I was too stupid to actually attach some sort of note identifying the rules, etc. If you have been miffed at my lax behavior, please feel free to send me an email taking me to task as I so richly deserve!
My lovely Hero Arts buddy and fellow former Hostess, Donna Mikasa, has sent me the MeMe Award, and I am determined to not blow it this time!!! The rules to this one are that you have to reveal seven secrets about yourself and pass the award on to seven other bloggers. Now somebody sent me something like this on Facebook, and I went ahead and posted it on my page there. So this information is technically NOT a secret anymore, but the majority of the world doesn't know it, so I'm thinking it counts as a secret.
Seven "Secret" Things About Me
1. My maternal grandfather was 70 years old when my mother was born... and she is an only child. I’m the only person of my generation that I know who can claim a grandparent born in 1875.
2. I flunked Algebra in high school because I was so intimidated by everything that I’d heard about it, I didn’t do the homework. When I took the class again, I did the homework and felt like a total idiot for ever being afraid of it.
3. I was a goodie-two-shoes who never did drugs or drank or anything even remotely racy until my freshman year in college when I decided to see what was the big deal about mind expansion via pharmaceuticals by dropping a hit of acid. I found the whole experience to be overrated and kind of annoying.
4. In 1987, I was on my way to Washington, DC, with no job and no prospects, so I figured I might as well have no money, too. I gave my last $3 to a woman begging in the Port Authority bus station in NYC. And thus I entered into the most successful period of personal growth that I have ever experienced.
5. Watching Survivor is my Guilty Pleasure.
6. I am a logic puzzle junkie.
7. As a child, I loved The Little Colonel series by Evansville, Indiana, native Annie Fellows Johnston, and I have managed to collect all but one of them as an adult. Written in the early 1900's, these books were last published in the 1940's - which is why it's been difficult to collect them.
I would lie to share the Me-Me Award with the following seven people:
Thank you, Donna, for sharing this award with me!
