It is always good to get an award or two. When we were running The Rising Blogger we realized how much thought and effort must go into an award. We’ve received three recently, but have not yet acknowledged the givers or said how much that we appreciate an award.
Lyn from A Blog in the Rough awarded us The Fan Award. She’s always upbeat and has a great sense of humor.
Dawn from Twisted Sister awarded us The Honest Scrap Award. It comes with a caveat. You have to tell your readers 10 things about you they may not know, but that are true.
5. All my clothes have my name stitched in them. It’s not so I can tell whose pants are on my date’s floor (although it helps on occasion), rather it’s because I often forget my name. I grabbed another guy’s pants once and got called “Fred” for a week.
7. I am a “Beefatarian”. If it isn’t steak, I won’t touch it. My cardiologist wants me to write a book to promote this diet. She needs more patients so she can join me in the Caribbean.
8. I had a woman call me once, one month after just one single date. She said she needed “closure”. To beat that, when I meet a woman now at a bar, I ask for her phone number. Then I call and ask for closure from merely meeting her.
10. My infatuation with Jill Hennessy is all about her character in the now defunct TV show Crossing Jordan. When she starred in Law & Order I hardly noticed her. With women, for me, it is all about personality and attitude. As Claire Kincaid in L&O she hadn’t any. As Jordan Cavanagh she was sassy. A co-star said her real personality was almost identical to Jordan, without the phobias.
