Beautiful Blogger Award

Howdy Humble Readers!
I have been very remiss. My lovely bloggy friend Alana at Alana-isms gave me this award waaaaay back before Christmas, but I haven't done anything with it. Bad hobbit! So, thank you,
Alana! You rock!

As a part of the award I am to tell 7 random things about me. Hmmmm, what haven't I told you all? Let me think...

1. One of my guilty pleasures... I love a good hot dog. With mustard and onions, with cheese, with chili. Now, I am fairly particular about my hot dogs. All beef, preferably kosher (cause you know you won't be biting into something you shouldn't then), on a good squishy bun. Mmmmm...

2. It's a bit of a family joke, but I regularly end up wearing my food. Usually in the vicinity of my chest (also known as 'the shelf'). Which is part of the reason I am thankful for the oh-so-unfashionable vest that I wear at work. It covers those telltale spots. I also own several of those stain remover pen thingys.

3. One of my addictions... school supplies. I love pencils, pens, blank notebooks, paper clips, staples, binders... the works. I'm not allowed to go into an office supply store unaccompanied.

4. My first pet was a bird. I know, ironic huh? The hobbit who is terrified of birds actually had one as a pet. I don't really remember him/her. All I really know is that it died of a heart attack when we moved. Got a little over excited I guess.

5. I don't like books, movies, or tv shows that I know are going to make me cry. If I cry while watching/reading out of a true emotional response, that's one thing. But those authors or shows that are known to make you cry as a part of their regular formula (any of those makeover shows, Tou.ched by an An.gel types of shows, that Christm.as Sh.oes song). I feel emtionally manipulated, and then I get mad.

6. I am rather competitive. I don't watch a lot of hockey or baseball or football, but when I do, I tend to get a little too into it. Tonight is the International Junior Hockey World final, between Canada and the US. I'm sorry, my humble readers from south of the border, but there will be some dark expletives heading your way should you get too far in front of our boys! ;)

7. In case I haven't mentioned it before, I procrastinate. We finally took down our tree yesterday (I had been planning on it for almost a week) and I still haven't vacuumed up the mess of needles on the floor. (Aren't artificial trees supposed to prevent this kind of mess?)

Now, I'm supposed to pass this award on to 7 other bloggers, but I have discovered in my recent rounds that most of my bloggy friends already have this one. Soooo... if you haven't gotten it, please consider yourself awarded. You are all beautiful in my book!

And please don't forget, it's Delurking week. I want to hear from you! :)


  1. LOL...proud "shelf" owner and food-wearer here too! I now own no white shirts. :)

  2. I HATE that christmas shoes song. I turn the channel every time it comes on. I also don't like movies/shows that make me cry. You are not procrastinating putting the holiday stuff away. We didn't decorate that much, but I plan on keeping our pretty lights up as long as possible ;)

  3. Great list, you Beautiful Gal, you!

    I spent all day Sunday taking down alllll of our Christmas stuff EXCEPT for the tree. I wanted to do it too, but just got too tired. This weekend for sure!

    Oh...and ehem....our hockey team is going to WHOOP yours! ;p

  4. Congrats on the Award....nice list.

    Me is a bigtime procrastinator too!

  5. I have a shelf and wear food too...LOL!

  6. You ARE a beautiful blogger, lady!

    And, we have so much in common, Mrs. Gamgee. Like loving yummy messy hot dogs, and wearing them on our chests!

    I'm going to do this since I haven't been awarded, yet.

  7. I love school supplies too, and always have. I always thought it was something very weird about myself. But I can't help it! Even at work I get excited when there is a new shipment of post-it notes and pens.

  8. Yes, yes, and yes to #1, #5, and #6.


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
