Another Blogger Award!

My friend Trish from the blog Contemplating Happiness was kind enough to award me the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Unlike real-world awards that come with gifts, prizes, and possibly cash, blogosphere awards come with chores. In this case I have to share seven things about myself, and then pass the award on to 15 other bloggers. It's the blog-world version of the chain letter. We do it because we love each other. Honest.

 Seven Confessions

 I'll try to tell you things I haven't told you yet. I'm sure I can think of something.

1.   I like shiny stuff. When I get my nails done, if Debbie puts two colors in front of me, and they're both the exact same color except one of them is full of sparkle, I'll always take the sparkle. I will say, "Let's go with a nice cream this time." She'll put a creamy pink in front of me, and I'll say, "Oh, that's pretty! I like that." Then she'll put the same pink in a metallic version, and the creamy version becomes suddenly invisible. Can't help it.
Really me
2.   I was voted the shyest girl in the Manteca High School graduating class of 1977. Have I already told you that? I may have already told you that. Well, that's okay. It would be presumptuous of me to assume that you've read every post I ever wrote. I don't want to be pushy. Just never mind. I'm sorry I said anything.

3.   I was president of my 5th grade class. I was everybody's friend. Somewhere in the next 7 years I became the shyest girl in class. Go figure. Truthfully, to be voted shyest means everybody knows who you are. Whoever the shyest girl really was, no one knew her. At least that's my take on the whole thing.

4.   My nose is the first thing to get cold. I think this means I'm a healthy puppy.
Not really me

5.    I'm a night person. I have to be a day person during the school year, but as soon as school's out, I'm up into the wee hours and sleeping until noon.
Also not really me
6. I frequently don't finish what I start.
