I'm a winner, you're a winner. Or is it wiener?

Sweet, kind Emily nominated me for a blog award. Emily churns out quilts at a rate I don't even have time to dream of. She makes beautiful, inspiring things.

beautiful blogger award

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award
2. Paste the award on your blog
3. Link the person who nominated you
4. Tell 7 interesting things about yourself
5. Nominate 7 blogs
6. Post links to those 7 blogs

7 things about me:

1. I adore cats. Everything about cats. But I don't decorate my house with cat objects.

2. I am a really picky eater. Being pregnant and not feeling well makes it really hard to eat.

3. I really want a tail, like a cat or a monkey has. But only if everyone has one and not just me.

4. I think that organizing things is the most fun ever. Like closets, laundry rooms, etc. Anything.

5. I used to be heavily in debt and loved to buy things -- anything at all. Money was no object -- it wasn't money anyway, but a credit card, right? Once I buckled down to pay it all off, I became a serious cheapskate. It's stuck with me.

6. I hate the winter and constantly worry about homeless people and cold animals. Cows, puppies, birds, all of them.

7. When I was 3, I rolled down an airplane window and touched a cloud. Yes, I did. I swear.

Seven blogs I like (besides Emily's):

1. Chickenbone Jones (Amy) - boy, Amy has a way of telling any old story in a hilarious way. Lately, though, it got a bit sad when her little dog became paralyzed right after she brought her new daughter home from the hospital.

2. All Things G&D - Inspiring home decor and a pregnancy blog that came at just the right time. She's just adorable, this girl.

3. Hip Stitch - A local fabric shop run by lovely and inspiring ladies.

4. Living and Knitting on a Maine Island (Marissa) - Marissa lives on a tiny Maine island that was recently featured on Oprah. It has a post office, but no full-time stores or restaurants. I find it fascinating.

5. Kerry Litka|Small Things Considered - She had me at "Freakishly Small Since 1976"

6. Quelle Erqsome - I'm fascinated by her life in England. Even though I believe she's from Canada, I still read her blog posts in a British accent. If I ever met her, I might be confused.

7. Attack of the Redneck Mommy - This woman is just hilarious. A little crass, so be forewarned if you've got a stick up your buttocks.

Hello! I don't know if I've officially introduced myself, but I've been lurking for awhile. First- congrats on the award. Second, since you like cats- I thought you might be interested in seeing a jewelry box that I made recently. Ali Baba and the 40 Cats!

Marissa said...

Awww, shucks, thanks for the mention! But mostly- thank you for the link to redneck momma, and the other great sites. Oh My Goodness- this is just what I needed right now!
I am printing off some posts to read to my extended family tomorrow while we gather at the hospital while one of our clan has surgery. They will provide much needed distraction and comic relief! Thank you!

@ Marissa: I'm glad you like Redneck Mama. She's hilarious.

@ Virg: Nice to meet you. The turban cat box is awesome!

oooo thankyou for the props. I can't believe that people outside my circle of insane friends actually enjoy reading my blog, especially now that it is so non sequitur. I used to blog exclusively about stuff related to cycling; then I started running again and lost some cycling readers and gained some runners. Then I started triathlons and gained some, lost some. Then I started sewing, lost ALL of the cycling readers but gained some sewers. My goal for 2010 is to get back to regular blogging (I used to do it nearly every day when I had a full time job, now that I am a grad student I have less time to write). Knowing that someone outside my inner circle of freaks appreciates it will keep me posting. Oh, and go watch some Doctor Who.
