Cheryl has given me an award. Behold the awesomeness:

This blog invests and believes, the proximity. [meaning, that blogging makes us ‘close’ -being close through proxy]. They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut, or that they propagate? Then let’s try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text.

I hereby bestow this award on the following bloggers:

Alison Wonderland, Hairline Fracture, The Woob Dog, Flip Flop Mama, Pottymouth Mom, Mama Mara, Typingfool, and Ordinary But Loud.


And now for the meme (tagged by the Cheryl), in which I list Seven Random Facts about Me.

Yeah, like there’s anything random about me you haven’t heard a billion times already.  Well, for those of you who may be new:

1.  I enjoy painting my nails in outlandish colors, especially those colors that are most unsuitable for a woman my age.

2.  Ever since my first child was born, I have not enjoyed fruit as I used to.  I don’t know if the two things are related, but that is how long I’ve noticed the problem–if indeed it can be called a “problem.”  My husband thinks it’s a problem.  He likes to hassle me about hating fruit.  I don’t hate fruit.  I just don’t like eating it very much.  Or often.

3.  I have naturally curly hair, but it doesn’t look naturally curly.  It mostly looks like I slept on it wrong.

4.  The ring tone on my cell phone is the theme from Alias–which is so 2005.  I really need a new one.  I really need a new cell phone.  When I get a new cell phone, I will get a new ring tone.  Either Mr. T saying, “I pity da foo’ who don’t answer his phone!” or Fred Willard saying, “Ah, what fresh hell is this?”  Maybe both.

5. I prefer differential calculus to integral calculus.  Thus it is revealed:  I am an intellectual lightweight.

6.  Our neighbors gave us a loaf of zucchini bread on Saturday.  I have eaten through the entire loaf all by myself.  In my defense, it was a small loaf.  Also, I’m the only one in the house who will eat baked goods.  It’s true.  I hate fruit; my husband hates baked goods.

7.  When I got married, I promised myself I would clean out the refrigerator every week.  Isn’t that funny?

Gentle readers, I hope your Thursday was as non-hostile to you as mine has been to me.  Except that I have ants in my kitchen.  Never mind.  Your Thursday must be ever more non-hostile than mine.  I will catch you crazy kids later.

(Speaking of crazy, I have an appointment with my shrink for Monday afternoon.  I thought you’d want to know.)
