Lots of awarding going on these day and I was tickled to be nominated by Minelle, Rogue, and Dana.
1.When one receives the award, one posts 11 random facts about oneself and answers the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
2.Pass the award onto 11 other blogs (while making sure one notifies the blogger that one nominated them!)
3.One writes up 11 NEW questions directed towards YOUR nominees.
4.One is not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated one's own blog!
Eleven facts about me:
I really like spending time alone.
I would rather be dipped in hot tar than hit a black Friday sale – and I’m sickened by stores opening up on Thanksgiving.
I hate wearing coats.
I played clarinet in my high school band. At least I owned one, I’m not sure I ever really learned to play it.
Several of my close friends in real life were people I really didn’t like when I first met them.
I feel closer to many people I know out here than I do to most of the people I see every day.
I am sick to death of driving a mom-mobile!
I would rather have a gift cert. to Staples, or Office Depot than nice clothing stores.
If there is only one women’s and one men’s restaurant in a store I have no problem using the men’s room.
If I had the choice of winning 5 million or 500 million, I’d choose the 5 million.
I’ve always believed in reincarnation.

Do you exaggerate when telling a story? Who me? Well perhaps, sometimes.

If you were shipwrecked, what three people from blogland would you like to be there with you? What person from blogland would you most like to meet? No way, you’re not limiting me to three – that’s like asking which kid you like best. There is not a person out here I wouldn’t want to spend some time with and get to know better.

What is your favorite color? Purple
I’m late to the party so I won’t be nominating anyone. But I have loved reading everyone’s answers!
