Love and Welcome Back

My friend Elizabeth gave me an award last week. She said she hoped it would give me a swift kick in the tush and get me back online again. hehehe How did she guess that my Fall resolution (New Years resolutions are so last year) was to get back into the habit of blogging. I am going to need some help, for some reason I have become the wold's worst editor and everything I write is deemed , "Not Good Enough!" which is weird because I don't even know any editors.

Anyway I am going to stop procrastinating and attempting to craft the perfect sentence (as if) and continue on with the directions. Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you! (check)

2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog! (see below)

3. Link the person who nominated you! (check, woohoo this is easy)

4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know. (Seriously?)

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers. (Where are you?)

6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate. (uhhhh)

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them!
(Can I do this by thinking about it really intently?)

Wow, seven things. What is it with bloggin and list, three thinks I eat for breakfast, twenty five things I do after lunch.....well here are my seven things, although probably you already know them (or you didn't care to know them in the first place):

1. I used to work as a waitress at Denny's. I worked all shifts including Graveyard (11 pm - 7 am) so I can tell you with certainty that the weirdos come out between 3 am and 5 am, excessive drinking does not make you more attractive and men should not wear corsets and fish net stockings to a restaurant even if they have just left the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

2. I love jackets, they are the one article of clothing that I will splurge on. I own two jackets that were my Dad's that I still wear occasionally.

3. I love coffee and spend way too much time thinking about it. When I began to pack for Haiti, my first thought was caffeine. I packed ground coffee, instant coffee, Carnation International coffee, chocolate covered coffee beans and caffeinated Jelly Bellies. Then I was able to relax and decide what clothes to pack. (BTW they do have coffee in Haiti, good coffee, who knew?)

4. I hate to eat breakfast. I ate breakfast everyday of my life until I turned 40.
I finally decided, "I don't enjoy eating breakfast so I am NOT going to." It was very empowering. It still drives my mom crazy. I don't miss it at all.

5. I love Broadway musicals, the old and new ones. Do you want to hear the soundtrack to Oklahoma or Fiddler on the Roof, complete with all the back ground parts? Just say the word and I will be there.

6. I almost was paddled in second grade (yes they still hit kids back then) for not finishing my handwriting. My handwriting sill sucks.

7. I never actually tag people in these awards because I am afraid that they will be like, who does she think she is tagging me, she is just a little blog and I have subscribers in the triple digits, and then I flash back to junior high and ... I do not need this pressure. However I LOVE getting tagged, because it makes me feel like one of the cool kids.

There. I am going to post this quick before that editor inside of me wakes up and deletes it. (She is just now getting her second cup of coffee, shhhh)
