Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

Some weeks ago, L.G. Keltner of Writing Off the Edge gave me the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award and I'm only now getting around to fulfilling the grueling responsibilities of this honor. ;-) J/K, L.G. - thanks for thinking of me! This gal's a creative and dedicated writer of groovy sci-fi, so y'all should really go check out her stuff.

To accept this bad boy, I must share 7 things about myself and pass it along to 7 lucky blogs. Now, I do feel a bit like my well of creative self-knowledge is running dry, but I'll try not to put y'all to sleep.
  1. I don't dig it when strangers or people I don't know well lay their mitts on me.
  2. My last hair cut was on Friday, December 31, 2010. (This is unrelated to #1, above.)
  3. I've never really "dated," per se. Every guy I've been seriously involved with was someone known to me and, frankly, the very idea of going out on a date with a stranger and having to make small-getting-to-know-you-talk wigs me out. (This is somewhat related to #1, above.)
  4. I regret having filled my son's head with ideas of Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy when he was little.
  5. Sometimes, I wish I had a little girl to raise. But, like gas, menstrual cramps, or a headache, that urge soon passes.
  6. I don't feel comfortable showing my face to the world without curling my eyelashes and putting on mascara. (What the world thinks of me, with or without, is probably best left unknown.)
  7. If my body metabolized alcohol better (meaning, if boozing it up didn't cause me to gain weight so quickly), I suspect I'd be a raging alcoholic. :-)
Here are the 7 blogs:

Right, so that's my work done. Have at it, Ladies! :-)


  1. Congratulations! No Santa or Tooth Fairy? My family weren't "touchers" either so I get it

  2. Congratulations on the award!!! And OMG you crack me up!!! Hey i've never dated a stranger either. Like you all my boyfriends/relationships were with people I knew first.

  3. I tried not to tell my kids about Santa, rather teach the idea of him... that he lived a long time ago, gave gifts to kids, and now we do it in his memory... but the ex's family ruined it all for us.

    Because really, what kid wants to know that some fat guy is going to break into their house while they are sleeping and leave them clothes and toys... and what if they don't get every thing on their list? Will they think they are eternally bad???

    Seriously, it just sets them up for therapy later...

  4. @Heather - Thanks! Yeah, my parents weren't touchers, yet I'm pretty touchy-feelie with my sis and kid and really close friends, and whatnot.

    @JoJo - We're a couple of discriminating gals, you and I! :-)

    @Juli - Yes! And what's up with folks thinking it's criminal to NOT tell your kids there's a Santa, or to tell them that the gifts they get Christmas morning come from their parents??? Gah! :-)


C'mon, post a comment. All the cool kids do.
