Apparently, I'm stylish!  I just got some bloggy love from new follower Lauren, from Dude, I think we might be fat.  Which, by the way, is an awesome freaking name...

You know that these always come with rules, and here are the rules for this one:
  1. Post and link back to the person who gave you this award.   
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award on to 15 recently discovered great bloggers (or as many as you can).
  4. Contact these bloggers and tell them they've won! 

Here goes....
1.  Done, and done
2.  Let's do bullets to keep these straight
  •  I'm exceptionally good at the "pigeon" yoga pose (way better than the teacher), but my hamstrings are so tight I still can't touch my toes.
  • Apparently, I have a "young soul."  This is from the same person at the Metaphysical Fair who told me that my necklace was full of dolphin energy (and who did not think it was funny when I asked her if there was an exhausted dolphin swimmin' around somewhere because of me).
  • I went to college on a writing scholarship, an academic scholarship, and a music scholarship.  Note that there is nothing there about an athletic scholarship.
  • Speaking of my great athleticism, I coined the term "Freestyle Stair-Diving" and told people that was how I broke my ankle.  It sounds way cooler than "I was carrying a bag of presents, a large box, an apple pie, my purse, and wearing 2.5 inch heels while running down the narrowest stairs known to man."  And no, I didn't even drop the pie.
  • My first kiss was when I was 16, and the boy in question has since come out of the closet (shout out to Mr. B!).  I like to think that I ruined him for all other men, but in hindsight his fondness for show tunes should have tipped me off.
  • My (not so) secret ambition is to be a esthetician and makeup artist, and give away my services to women who are trying to get back into the workforce.  Like "Dress for Success," but for your face.
  • I am a Libra, and making a decision on what to put down for my #7 has taken me 30 minutes of wandering around my house and thinking.
3.  The bloggers I've really liked and recommended:
I think I may have gone over, but I'm also sure I'm leaving someone out.   Anyhoo, go and check some of these out.  After all, you like me, and I like them, ipso facto you will like them.  I'm sure there's a mathematical collary for that, but I'll leave that to those geekier than I.

  1. Thank you Babe! Even though I am a horrible blogger now, seeing this award still makes me feel good :)

    Now I'm caught up on your blog, and I'm sorry you have been having a hard time :( I really feel for you, as you know I have been having a hard time too. I can relate, I have also been turning to food, and it has become out of control! I have actually gained back 20 pounds now :( I'm not really ready to start blogging again, but hopefully soon!

    I see you haven't blogged for a bit, I hope everything is going better. You really are doing great, and such an inspiration. Again: LOVE the new pic!!! You have come so far, I hope you are proud :) Any set back you may have had, I hope is better now!!!
