Comment on my Blog

Last evening, I was checking my email and I noticed that I had a notice of a comment on my blog.  My first thought was "Who did I piss off now?"  When I opened it and read on, I was surprised (and pleased) that I was given an award: "The Versatile Blogger" by one of my fabulous followers, Lloyd.  He's located to the right of this scribbling.  MUCH thanks, Lloyd!! 
Apparently, this is a nod from others that read your blog and like it.  The kicker is that once you are awarded, it's your turn to nominate others and reveal 7 quirky things about yourself.  So, without further adieu, I am going to follow suit for this prestigious award.

Quirks
  • I have an uncontrollable urge to buy wallets and purses.  The strange thing is that I despise shopping.  I break out into a cold sweat if I have to step foot into a store.  I think I would rather have a good ass kicking instead of going shopping.
  • My hair sucks.  It has cowlicks and it is straight as a board.  It's thick, yet fine.  I once had a hairdresser tell me, "Your hair gives your head character, kid."

  • Speaking of hair, when I asked my hairdresser to perm my hair, she put her hands on her hips and replied; "If I'm rolling that hair that pops out of the curler, I've gotta take a valium."
  • I look at life with a strange slant.  For example, when I woke up this morning, I walked over to my chair and noticed something odd.  I stared for a moment and then went to get my camera and take a picture of it.  I downloaded it to my computer.  My chair has an outline of my butt.  Look for yourself.  Strange things like that intrigue me.
  • I'm a writer.  You would think that I would be a voracious reader.  I'm not.  I just love writing.
  • When I laugh, I snort.  There, I said it.
  • Ever since I co-wrote "The Mango Tree Cafe, Loi Kroh Road" with Alan Solomon, I am absolutely obsessed with Asian Culture especially Thailand. 
Well, there it is.  The gritty side of me.  Now, to nominate some worthy blogs!

Okay. You got me. I'm tagged. I'm IT. Guess I must confess seven things about myself. *holding head* Oh, the pressure.

At the moment, I'm watching Dateline, a thunderstorm is due, and Izzy is whining to be taken for a walk--it's time for his evening piddle. I'll get back to you.
