Stylish Blogger Award

Stylish I go!

Jen Mecca sent me an email the other day about being one of her "Stylish Blogger" picks. I have been stewing over who to send to and also what to say. In the meantime I went out of town, so, out of sight, out of mind. Having procrastinated long enough, here are the rules and my 7 scoops:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award being by providing a link to their site.
2. Share 7 things about yourself that other bloggers might not know.
3. Give the Award to 15 newly discovered or interesting blog.
4. Notify each of those blogger to present the Award.

7 Scoops about Me:

1. Whining drives me crazy. I come from a notoriously non-sympathetic family.
Which is not to say they don't have EMPATHY, because they do, fantastically. However, we all have a very short attention span for whining about conditions in life. Usually you will be treated to a "Suck it up. Life is hard. Life is not fair. Stop wasting time and get out there and DO something about it."
2. I lived in 7 different houses in 2 different states in 12 years. No, I don't come from a military family, we just moved quite a bit until we finally settled down in New Orleans.
3. I love books so much that when a hurricane was threatening to come inland to N.O. when I was in 7th grade, I stacked all my books by my bed so that I could evacuate them with me. How I thought I would get them into the car in that state of emergency is beyond me now. I probably knew my sister or parents wouldn't help carry them or listen to my woes (see #1 above).

4. A grown man once threatened me with a gun when I was in the sixth grade. My dog had run into his yard and he was threatening to shoot him and I got in front of my dog so he couldn't. As an adult I look back at that and think, "What the heck was he thinking?" Of course, he may have been holding a BB gun to give him the benefit of the doubt.

5. I started reading a series of books by Dorothy Dunnett when I was in high school. There are 6 books in the Lymond series and 8 books in the Niccolo series. For you, dear reader, I added up all the pages and they amount to a total of 3046 pgs. and 4484 pgs. respectively. And I have read the first series about 4 times minimum and the second series twice. 21152 pgs. A little scary when I think about it.
6. My favorite protein food is cheese. And yogurt comes a close second. I love cheese. All kinds of it. Heaven would be a cheese trip around the world. I can now satify my desire to catch up on my favorite cows and farm life by logging onto the Stoneyfield Farm website.
7. Have always disliked my middle name. Was very happy to replace it with my maiden name on documents after marriage.
