Daisy Award

Thank you very much to the wonderful Elizabeth Arroyo
for this cute award.

I must now tell you seven unusual things about myself.

1) My wedding ring is black with a white gold band. I don't like diamonds or yellow gold. I don't like to wear rings either. Plus, I'm quite accident prone. The ring is made from black titanium. Near indestructible!

2) I have a lot of paperclips and I'm not sure why.

3) I'm thinking of chocolate cheesecake when I should be thinking of unusual things about myself. The What's Your Chocolate? blogfest from earlier this week has stayed with me all week long.

4) I have a firm handshake. It weirds me out a bit when I shake someone's hand and theirs is limp.

5) I don't know what I'm going to be for Halloween. It might be too early to be thinking about it, but I'd like to have some time to prepare. Any suggestions?

6) I say "cool" a lot. Now my son is saying it. Will it still be a cool word to use for his generation?

7) Top items on my Christmas list for this year: a composter and a kitchen floor. Yes, I'm that exciting.

I nominate these worthy bloggers that I haven't heard from in a long time:

    1. We really need one with a picky toddler. Too many scraps wasted. I do throw a lot out to the birds and squirrels, but I'd rather compost everything.

  2. For Halloween, dress as Abby, complete with stuffed hippo!

    1. Hehehe! That would be hilarious! Though, I don't think any but one of my friends here would get it.

  3. Hello Christine...congrats on the award and on your choice of a wedding ring...when I get married I plan on using a silver band :). May I ask you, please if you don;' mind to tell me where did you submitted your short stories? I wrote my first short story and I've submitted it to several publishing houses and they all say they don't publish short stories...I am quite lost here...Kisses have a great day.

    1. With short stories, you can try magazines/ezines or anthologies. There are plenty out there. Go to Ralan.com and you'll find great lists of anthologies seeking submissions and magazines accepting short stories for print.

  6. I hate the limp handshake thing. Why even shake? I think 'cool' is going to be around for a long time.

  9. Awesome! Thanks, Christine!

    I hate yellow gold. And I've never been into diamonds, but my engagement ring does have one. And I have to admit, it is beautiful to look at.

    I also say cool ALL the time. Or "coolness," to break up the monotony of saying "cool." LOL

  10. Loved getting to know so much more about you. I love all movies, except those horrible B films, so it was hard to choose.

    Paranormal romance books are my fave as well :).

  11. Thank you for the award, Christine!

    That is very cool (ha) that you have a firm handshake. I tend to have one, too--although mine is often a very COLD, firm handshake because my hands are freezing for half the year. ;)
