I’d like to thank my family, my editor…

The Lisas of Lisa and Lisa Write a Book, have kindly bestowed an award upon me.  They feel that I am worthy of praise.  Isn’t that sweet?  Thank you, Lisa and Lisa.  Long live your WIP and your fun blog.

Truth is, I do this blog thing because I love to write.  Love, love, love it.  The more I write, the better I feel.  The better I feel, the nicer I am.  The nicer I am, I share my kindness with others.  After that, world peace and happiness are just around the corner.

 It’s probably a blessing that WordPress came along. 

So, as I understand it, there are some rules to this award.  I am to tell you all 7 things about myself that you didn’t already know.  I am to award 15 other bloggers with this award, and I am to let them all know how much I love their blogs too.  The pressure. 

Fame – it’s a harsh thing sometimes.

So, to fulfill my blogger-ly duties, here we go. 

Seven Things You Need To Know About Me

1.  I would love to be a famous audiobook reader.  I realize that you need to be an actress to do this, but, shoot, I’m pretty dramatic already.  I can do a wicked NY accent and my southern drawl isn’t too bad.  Maybe I’ll be discovered someday – like while giving directions to some patron regarding the whereabouts of a book.  It could happen you know.

2.  I have a really really really bad temper.  I continue to work on this negative aspect of my personality daily, but I’m afraid that it’s a lifelong goal.

3.  I have premonitions.  They’re subtle (not Sixth Sense-y), but they creep up on me every now and again.  It’s weird.

4.  I worry a lot.  I’m so good at it that I should add it to my resume.  Yes, I know worrying is a waste of energy.   See #2 regarding lifelong goals.

5.   I went back to school last year and it has made me re-evaluate everything I’ve ever learned.  This “going back to school” stuff – it’s hard. 

6. I admire people who are good at math and those who drink their coffee black. 

7.  I am a hopeless romantic.  I adore movies like “Cold Mountain”, “The Last of the Mohicans” and yes, “Twilight”.  The more action, adventure and unrequited love, the better. 

Now, I must name some blogs that I would like to bestow this award upon.  Kind of like a pay it forward sorta thing.  I was supposed to highlight 15 blogs but, well, due to the fact that The Lisas chose most of the blogs that I would have, I’m just going to award 5 other dedicated bloggers.  Five other really talented, interesting bloggers. 

Five Blogs That You Should Read Immediately

Are You There God? It’s Me, Generation X
The Restless Writer
My Library Ideas
Busy Mom Blog
Vintage Kids’ Books My Kid Loves

… and for a little hero-worship, let me introduce Anne Taintor’s blog.  Only problem is that I can’t tell her that I awarded her blog.  That would make her look at my blog and call her copyright lawyers.  We’ll just keep that a secret amongst ourselves.  K? 

Thanks again, Lisas.  You didn’t really think that I had an editor, did you?
