In all the years of writing online I don't think I've ever been nominated for anything....course, things would soon change.Stephanie, a fellow writer on Twitter has nominated me for;
I suppose its true, being nominated is the ultimate special feeling. Who needs to win at this point? In many ways I've already won.With that being said? there's a slight catch to this being nominated (ahem)...

Seven Random (possibly odd and scary) Facts About Me:
First of all I've never p-a-r-t-i-c-i-p-a-t-e-d in one of these thingy-poo-poos-ever. I have however seen the likes of them many years back when I belonged to the first original Journalspace writing site, though, hm, I assumed a position of being on the down low from joining in on any reindeer games, simply because I happen to think my list would have been as generic as the dandy lions spreading out on my neighbors lawn.
Now however? I think otherwise. I wanna join in on the fun. Thanks Steph!
Before I do my list I'd like to tell you a little about Stephanie and how I came upon her.
I met Stephanie on twitter. I don't know if I started to follow her or she followed me...neither matters at this point other than I'm pretty fortunate to come by her. Stephanie is a writer who writes so well in my opinion that I question my own damn-writing. There's a few out there that mercy me.
Stephanie has this ability to make me laugh out loud at my computer screen, whether she is tweeting or talking about her unsafe neighborhood in her Blog-she's seriously hilarious. I adore hilarious.
I look forward in getting to know Stephanie more in the future and, thank her in advance (coughs..) while I'm still in a good mood for making this blasted Random List.
(1). Scary or odd facts about me? I'm a procrastinator here in there until I fight it off and leap spontaneously off my ass and embark on large projects that MUST be accomplished that day or I lose interest.
(2). I'll not gift myself some of the pleasures other women gift themselves. Such as expensive make-up, purses, jewelry, spas and so on. I wore dollar store make-up for years before my husband got mad at me and dragged me out to buy decent make up (laughs). I learned soon that if you spend a little more on make up it goes on literally like silk. My daughter gave me my first pedicure before I went to Mexico.So pretty.Think I'm hooked.
(3). I stress over stupid things. I'll stress all day over the very things I encourage others to forget.
I'm stressing now.
(4). I hate it when people don't like me, period. I don't know why that is, because...some days I couldn't give a chit!
(5). I believe its really me putting out the street lights when I drive, not the tilted head light my husband mentions in all four of the cars we've had in the past. I believe at one time Lily had a ghost. I summoned it away and I never lost a kitchen item again.
(6). I like driving a stick shift. Two months ago I rammed the jeep into our Mazda at the END OF THE DRIVEWAY!.
(7). I like greasy-concession-stands at ball parks my daughter Lil-plays at. One doesn't sell fries however. Who-the-hell-wouldn't sell fries at a ball park????? ( eye roll....)
-My Nominees Are-----and forgive me for not finding seven. I thank you with my writing heart for the inspiration you give online and in life.

PS.Remember neither one of you need to feel you have to join in on any reindeer games:)
