Stylish Blogger Award

Thank you, Mask. The Blogger Formerly Known as The Enigmatic, Masked Blogger recently honored me with a Stylish Blogger Award. For those of you who don’t know the rules of accepting this award:

1.)    Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2.)    State seven things about yourself.
3.)    Pass the award on to 15 recently discovered great bloggers.

So, again, thank you Mask. Hmm, seven things you might find interesting about me…

1.      I was born in California.

2.      I have also lived in Texas and Louisiana, but only visited 18 other states in the USA - so far.
3.      The only other country I have visited is Mexico. (Unless you count EPCOT’s World Tour ;-) I hope to visit others in the future.
4.      I could live on M&M’s and Diet Root Beer.
5.      Gary Oldman and Johnny Depp are two of my favorite actors.
6.      I’m attracted to strong arms.
7.      The Bible is my favorite book.
Instead of passing this award to 15 specific bloggers (who may or may not have received it before), I invite any of my new blogging friends to accept it by leaving a comment below. They can leave a link back to their own blog, webpage, twitter or facebook accounts.
Happy Writing!

Hmm, M&Ms and Johnny Depp eh? Delicious.

Thanks for the comments on my blog...I think you are right, it's important to look past the initial and look at the road someone has traveled. I like that!
Take good care and have a great day!

Sylvia, you are such a kind person. Thank you. I enjoyed reading your seven things and share your affection for Johnny Depp. I get so mad when he never wins the Oscar. He's brilliant!

Congrats on the award and for passing it on!

To be honest, beyond the obligatory 7 pointers for this particular award, I find all writer blogs interesting and love the way our community has expanded so fast. ;)

BTW: Ooooh, Johnny Depp ((((hot flush)))
