The Versatile Blogger Award

Today I got my third blog award and I'm really excited about it! A big thanks to BookSnob for choosing me to pass it along to! The Rules for the award are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

Now to the vain part: sharing seven things about myself. (Isn't writing a blog vain enough to start with? Yes, but in a good way.)

1. I feel naked without earrings.
2. My favorite place in the US is New Orleans. My favorite place I've visited so far in the world is a three-way tie between Amsterdam, Paris and the BVI's.
3. I used to think I was a really good driver but lately I have been cutting people off without meaning to because the space I thought was there just wasn't. This is something I need to work on. On a related note, I have a really hard time driving at night because my depth perception doesn't seem to work after dark. Do they make glasses for that?
4. My favorite game in the whole world is Trivial Pursuit. I really want to get the Book Lover's Edition but I have a feeling I would need to track down more English majors to play with me.
5. I won't let you borrow my books if you dog-ear them (ehhhm, Melanie) but I scribble and annotate all over the pages. I'm not sure why I'm ok with one and not the other.
6. My biggest pet peeve is when people don't use adverbs correctly.
7. I want a miniature bulldog puppy more than anything but I am holding off until I can make it a very happy dog. Oh, and I'm going to name him Potato. I visit puppy stores every chance I get and molest bulldogs with kisses while calling them potato, like this poor guy below:


  1. Congrats on your award! Stopping by while blog hopping my way through the bookie world. Have a great weekend!

  2. Ahhh!! So proud of you. Reading your updates makes me wanna blog more =)I can't wait till you get that puppy ;)

  3. awe thanks girl. i miss you!!!

  4. LOL, the dog sure is cute! Congratulations on the award and I enjoyed reading the seven things about you. I'd love to visit Paris one day too. And no, I don't like to dog-ear my books.

  5. Thanks, Josette. I know those dogs are adorable!!! And what is it that makes me so angry about dog-earring? Maybe because it defaces those precious little pages.

  6. Oh, I am desperate for a puppy! The one in your picture is pretty darn cute :) I just came over to say THANK YOU!!!! for your help with Google Analytics! I just followed your directions about 15 seconds ago and hopefully everything will start working... I really, really appreciate your taking the time to help!

  7. Katie - No problem :) I'm so glad you figured it out!

  8. You and potential Potato look great together!

    I feel naked without earrings as well.

  9. Thanks, Bybee! Oh I just love those little dogs so much.

  10. #6 haha - I have been known to yell "ly!" at the TV when people say things like "That's an awful good sandwich," or "She walked around so sleepy after staying up all night." Adverbs: it's a good thing.

  11. Carin - I know it really annoys me! I'm glad someone shares my appreciation for proper adverb usage :)
