Kim, You're the Bee's Knees!
I'd like to thank Kim of Queen Bee for bestowing upon me the Honest Scrap award. Those who've been to Casa Kittling often enough know my rather ambivalent attitude toward awards... and that I seldom follow the rules.
The rules state that I'm supposed to tell you ten things about myself and then pass the award on to ten other bloggers. I think I'll follow the first rule and pass on the second!
Let me put on my thinking cap for a few moments. At times like these, I never know what in the Sam Hill to tell y'all!
--When I was learning to talk, I couldn't pronounce my L's, which made the adults around me smile whenever I wanted to see 'assie, my favorite television program.
--It also caused problems when I tried to sing. According to me, my favorite song to sing to everyone was The Purple Peter Eater. I actually remember a time or two when I got miffed when all the adults started laughing. It took a few years before I caught the humor.
--I didn't own a car until I was 40.
--I have a phobia about wringer wash machines because of my great aunt Lois.
--I was once thrown out of a Walmart because of my attire. You see, I went in straight after work. When they saw me wearing Target's khaki and red (complete with spiffy name badge), they were convinced that I was doing a comp shop and not looking for lazy susans. It's the first and last time I've been frog-marched out of a store, and to this day I categorically refuse to give any of the Walton clan a penny of my hard-earned money. (Not that I carry a grudge....)
--When I was a senior in high school, I lost eleven pounds during the 24 hours of Homecoming. (All sweat, unfortunately!) That was also the day I marched two miles in a parade with a rock stuck to my sock right underneath the ball of my right foot.
--I had a 14-year-old black toy poodle that saved me from a rapist one night.
--I once had two Wire-Haired Fox Terriers who took turns pulling each other around the pool on their very own boogie board.
--I'll take jeans over sequins any day.
--I own ten pairs of shoes which include 2 pairs of flip-flops and 2 pairs of "cowboy" boots.
Mostly a trip down Memory Lane, but I hope you enjoyed it nonetheless!

- Hi! I'm addicted to books (especially crime fiction), laughter and traveling off the beaten path. In my free time, when my eyes aren't glued to the printed page, one of them is usually pressed against the viewfinder of my camera. Let's see... books, laughter, travel, photography. Anything else? Oh yeah-- my dream house wouldn't have a kitchen!
