I'm a Stylish Blogger

  I'm stylish?  Really?  Well, Bev at My Reader's Block seems to think so, and she graciously presented me with this Stylish Blogger Award.  You like me!  You really like me!  (and thank you so much)
  So the responsibilities attached with this award are as follows:

1) Thank the person who gave you the award, and link back to them in your post.
2) Tell us 5 things about yourself.
3) Award 5 super-stylish bloggers this award :D
4) Contact those bloggers and let them know they have won

  So, the five things about me that you really must (??) know are:
  1. I am a late bloomer in many things:  I didn't learn to ride a bike or tie shoelaces until I was 7 or 8 and I didn't get my driver's license until I was 25.  But I learned to read when I was 4.
  2. I have never seen the movie E.T.
  3. I own a share (a very very small share) of a painting of Winnie-the-Pooh by the original illustrator, E.H. Shepard (on display at the Pavilion Gallery in my hometown of Winnipeg)
  4. I am in a music video -- Gowan's Awake the Giant, a Canadian 80s classic (granted, you have to record the video and freeze frame through to see me, but I'm there!)
  5. I cry almost on command when I hear Amazing Grace played on the bagpipes
  T.M.I. right?

  I am passing forward this award to the following bloggers:
  Check them out if you haven't already done so!


  1. Yes, I like you! I really like you!

  2. Thanks a lot! It's really nice of you to nominate me! ;)) I'll try to continue but I must say that if I love receiving those tags, I'm king of awful when it comes to continue! But thanks, I'm really pleased!

  3. Thanks Suzanne! These are always fun :) I'll post my response today.

  4. I too have never seen ET - I even managed to avoid it when my boys were of an age to see it. It has become, kind of, a badge of some sort.

    Didn't get my drivers license until I was 23 and had trouble learning to ride a bike. I also read before school.

    We should probably compare other notes.


  5. you ARE a stylish blogger :-) congrats on your award :-)

  6. Oh my, thank you! I have been somewhat lax in the reading (and posting!) recently so only just seen this. You are very kind, thank you and congratulations on winning it yourself!! :)


What do you think? Good or bad, I'd love to hear from you (but be nice - I'm sensitive!)
