Wow. You like me, you really like me!

Or at least, Erin at I'm Staying Young Forever does. Which works out well, because I like her too! On a completely unrelated note, she gave me the shiny new award you can see over in the sidebar over there. Thank you, Erin!

Now there are rules. And since I'm OCD WE MUST FOLLOW THE RULES or we're all gonna die. I'm not going to have mass genocide on my conscience, thankyouverymuch. The rules are these:

1. Say thank you. This rule is awesome. Also, check. Please see above.

2. Share 7 things about yourself (awesome).

3. Nominate 15 bloggers (uh, whoa).

4. Tell the people you nominated that you nominated them ( going to take awhile. Don't worry. We are FOLLOWING THE RULES. No one will die. Not on my watch).

Seven Things I Know that You are Dying (DYING!) to Know About Me:

1. I have Fred Flintstone feet. They are flat, they are square, and I suspect they are ideal for propelling the motorless/engineless car. They aren't ugly or pretty. They are cartoon character feet. Bonus fact: You people who take such pride in your "pretty feet" frighten me a little. Feet are never pretty. Please don't show me yours. I won't think they are pretty. No, really, I won't.

2. I run and do a little light yoga every day.

3. I buy bras in the training bra section of Target. Its frightening to me that there are training bras that are too big for me. It means there are 8 year olds with larger rib cages and bigger boobies. And I'm a regular sized adult. With a regular adult sized ribcage, if not regular adult sized breasts.

4. I once had a haircut that made me look eerily like John Lennon circa early Beatles. Currently, I am seeing more of a resemblance to Groucho Marx.

5. I think nerds are sexy. Although maybe I should specify. I think smart nerds or nerds who can make me laugh or sensitive nerds are sexy. Notable examples include Paul from the Wonder Years, Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future, and Michael Cera in pretty much everything. I do not think nerds who live in their mother's basements and talk constantly about Dungeons and Dragons even though they are almost 30 are sexy. Your mileage may vary.

6. If I like a book or movie or television show I will read/watch it over and over and over. And over. And over. I have read some of John Irving's books at least 10 times. I have read Flannery O'Connor's short stories even more than that. I will watch Silence of the Lambs 3 times in one day. Like that.

7. One of my compulsions is the compulsion to make words out of the letters on license plates. I do this constantly and unconsciously at this point.

(Rule 2: Check and check!)

Nominate 15 bloggers (actually, I think it says nominate 15 bloggers you have recently discovered...but I don't discover that many that frequently. Let's say just nominate 15 bloggers okay?)

1. Amber at Nostomanic - read it! Read the archives! Its all completely awesome and hilarious and nostalgic for those of us who are children of the 90s.

2. Ashley the Accidental Olympian - who is awesome.

3. Ells at Run Bitches Run who both runs AND bitches, and also has an awesome dog, which makes her like my twin or something. I don't know. She's cool and I like her and you should too.

4. Tina K at Vomit Popsicle because how can you not read something like a name like that and because she IS really versatile. Sometimes there's poems and sometimes there's stories and sometimes there's other stuff.

5. Erin at Blogging is for Dorks who I really did just kind of discover recently. Well, rediscover. Anyway, she's hilarious and her children make me not entirely opposed to the idea of procreation. Which is a way better compliment than it sounds like.


6. Kandace at One Red Wall
7. Maria at No One Reads the Copy
8. Tristachio at Tristachio: Not a Peanut
9. Sadako at Dibbly Fresh
10. Manda at the Secret Life of Manda Kay

12. Not That Kind of Girl
13. Annabelle at I'll Tell You Anyway

15. Cleolinda Jones at Occupation: Girl
I need a freaking drink.


  1. Sooooooooooooooooooo I'm thinking we need to get friendship bracelets. If that isn't your thing I'll settle for friendship necklaces.

    If even THAT wont work, I'll just force you to handcuff yourself to me. For eternity.

    Take your pick.

  2. Can we get the ones that say Be Fri on one side and St ends on the other side? No one would ever wear one of those with me.

    Its going to be very hard to make handcuffs stretch that far. I think there's a dirty joke in their somewhere.

  3. Thanks! I'm currently engaged in a mid-air freeze frame internet high five with you.

  4. "Feet are never pretty. Please don't show me yours. I won't think they are pretty. No, really, I won't."

    This is SO, SO true. I was so grossed out by people's feet on the subway the other day that I spent about 10 minutes thinking about what would happen if we could just have round slabs as feet. Maybe certain functions would be impaired, but it would LOOK so much better.

  5. Aww thanks Megs!!! :P

    PS: in a survey amongst my friends, they are also going with the teenager pretending to be an adult on the internet. and i just threw that in as a joke!

  6. But mine really are pretty! I've gotten compliments!

    Er. I mean...thank you for the award. :) I've always loved Jeff Goldblum in JP, too. Though I think I like Sam Neill a teensy tiny bit more!

  7. Just found you via Ashley the Accidental.

    And I am very glad you specified that not all nerds are created equal, because it's true.

    Also, I share your love for Michael Cera and Flannery O'Connor.
