And the Award Goes To…

This birthday girl! What a nice present from my mom over at Ramblings by Judi. She was awarded the Premio Meme Award and then was kind enough to pass it on to me. Isn’t it pretty?

It is like the award was designed with us in mind -- a photograph of a novel. There it is Mum, our next venture will be you taking pictures of the books I write. So I guess I better wrap up this blog post to get on with that then huh?

OK there are always rules with these things and the rules for this one say to pass it on to seven bloggers and then share seven random facts about yourself. I had a really tough time choosing just seven people the last time so I am breaking the rules and not passing this one on. Sorry but it is just too difficult to pick. I thoroughly enjoy everyone I read so if you stop over here and read this post you should know that you too deserve this awesome award. Take it, post it, tell your friends! Here’s the facts…

1. I enjoy working from home with no radio or television on for my entire 12 hour day. Silence helps my brain sort out thoughts so I can get them onto paper or Word docs.

2. But there are some days when I like to play music & it is always LOUD! Today is one of these days. Sorry neighbors but you’ll be rid of me by Sunday.

3. I still have not purchased Dave Matthews Band’s new CD. Shameful I know but I didn’t want anything else to move so I will be introducing it to its new home next week.

4. There are some artists I simply must buy the physical CD for and load it into digital format. Those artists are DMB, Jason Mraz, Melissa Ferrick and Matchbox 20. Unfortunately Ferrick’s most recent was digital only so I guess its something I have to learn to live with in the future.

5. We use soy milk in our coffee now and I really don’t even miss cow milk unless I’m eating something sweet (like birthday cake)!

6. I recently added Resume and Cover Letter Writer to my portfolio. Let me know if I can help you too!

7. I am a total maniac about my birthday. Today is all about me and I love getting calls, comments, messages, etc wishing me a happy birthday. Then on your birthday I repay the favor because seriously it’s the most important day of the year. You wouldn’t be here to wish me a happy birthday if you didn’t pop out all those years ago and vice versa. Time to celebrate woo hoo!

Great award! Love reading random things about bloggers - it's a great way to get to know them better. I would have the tunes blasting now too if son 2 wasn't still sleeping.
