The Gift that Keeps on Giving...

I have to admit it, I get a little thrill whenever I get a comment on my blog, especially since I know I'm not the best at coming up with comments for the blogs of others. So I was especially thrilled when I saw that Icy Roses, over at From Elysium, just awarded me the Kreativ Blogger award. I'd like to officially express my gratitude to her, and tell everyone to go check out her blog.

Here are the rules I must adhere to to be deserving of this award. These rules apply to all those who receive this award.

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might not know.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

As for nominating seven different kreativ bloggers, well, here goes:

1. Abby Annis, whose blog has a new look! Check it out!
2. Rebecca Knight: Writer in Progress
3. Jess Jordan, whose recent posts on Say What? have been extremely helpful to me
4. Rebecca Sutton at Sometimes Helpful Nonsense
5. Suzanne at Tales of Extraordinary Ordinariness, who I know is on vacation right now
6. Tess Hilmo, for being a constant inspiration to me, even if she doesn't know it
7. Eric, at Working my Muse, I wanted to nominate you, too, but I thought the award was too girly. I'll make you a special one. ;), here:

I know you're all dying to hear my seven facts, well, here goes:

1. As you can see by Eric's award, I have mad Photoshop skills!
2. I can't curl my tongue, but I can touch my elbows together behind my back. Seriously.
3. I've never been black-out-drunk before, but I've lied and said I was.
4. I love to shop at the Asian Market, and am addicted to Vietnamese po'boys and avocado, lychee, or kumquat bubble tea.
5. I had a lot of Barbies when I was a kid, but I never actually played with them, just dressed them, did their hair, and made them have sex with Ken.
6. I love to sing, but I can never remember song lyrics unless I read them.
7. I will eat anything that's deep fried.

Is that seven already? And here I was just opening up. ;)

Thanks again, Icy Roses!

Really? Aw, thanks!

And, I love your seven. I have a thing for all food asian myself...yum! And, here I sit trying so hard to touch my elbows behind my back and can't. Darn! You know everyone who reads that one will try it :)

thanks again!


Thank you, TereLiz!

You made your barbies have sex with Ken? Gasp! And here I thought I was being risque by naming one of my three Beach Blast barbies "Bruce" after the guy my dad worked with and sending her off to the oil rigs with Ken/"dad" (a.k.a. putting the two of them on the bathroom counter for about ten minutes, until my sis and I were ready to play with them again).

Congrats, and thank you. I feel really special, since you photoshop'd the icon for me. Woohoo. Interesting list, a nice view into "who you are".
