Life on Tuesday got nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award!!!

This was such a pleasant surprise!!! Thanx a million to Miss Jey over at http://missjeyonline.wordpress.com.  She’s got a whip smart fashion blog over there.  She’ll make a fashionista of you yet! 😀

When given this honor you, the bestowed upon,  have to do a few things.  With VBA-dom comes great responsibility. I aint mad.

Here are the rules for the award:

1.Add the award to your blog.
2.Thank the blogger who gave it to you and include a link to their blog.
3.Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4.List the rules.
5.Give the award to 15 or more bloggers

Here are 7 random things about me:

1) I’m not a good gossiper.  Good gossiping requires the gossiper to remember details about past gossip sessions.  I’m horrible at remembering details.

2) I have my own crayons and coloring books (off limits to my kids).  They’re my Rx for stress relief.

3) I have a huge bag (the kind you get from Ikea) filled with un-matched socks. What gives?

4) I have a re-occurring dream about my high school English class.  The details are fuzzy though.  Told ya I suck at details.

5) I still have trouble remembering my 7 times tables.

6) I have a grandma named Queenie and a grandma named Clementine.  Both missed and loved with all my heart…

7) I’m not. that. innocent.

Focusing on day 9 of the 30 day blogging challenge

Picture of the last item you purchased:

These are mildly addictive for me. They’re a bad habit I picked up in high school. My best friend and I would pool our money to get two packs of these from the corner store when we got off the school bus.

Depending on the day, I was either pooling my money with Jax to get these cookies, or pooling my money with another good friend, *Diedre, to get the two wings & a biscuit special from Churches. Metabolism is wasted on the youth I tell ya.  Anyway there’s a story behind why I was so hungry and it involves some salacious details like homeroom, teen angst and classism…but maybe that’s a story for another time.

*names were changed to protect the folk who may wish to keep private the fact that they frequented said establishment. Viva la Churches!
