Liebster Award

Anastasia Vitsky  nominated me for the Liebster Award. I'm honored, though I was more excited when I thought it said Lobster Award. Ah well. 

The Rules
  • When one receives the award, one posts 11 random facts about oneself and answers the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  • Pass the award onto 11 other blogs (while making sure one notifies the blogger that one nominated them!)
  • One writes up 11 NEW questions directed towards YOUR nominees.
  • One is not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated one’s own blog!
  • One pastes the award picture into ones blog. (You can google the image, there are plenty of them!)

My nominees:

Anyone else who wants to participate. Just leave a comment that links to your blog post and I'll check it out. I know lots of others have been nominated and I don't want to repeat but I also don't want to leave anyone out who would like to be part of the fun. 

Or maybe all of you can just answer the questions in the comments. I know this is like breaking a chain letter, but I don't want to leave anyone out who wants to participate. 


  1. LOL! I refuse to answer the comment about whether I've forgotten to return a book on the grounds that I might incriminate myself.

    Your uncensored first response made me giggle!

    I love O Holy Night. Well, I love just about every Christmas song so I'm not sure if that counts. ;)

    And me too, absolutely, about Seinfeld. Could not watch more than a clip here or there.

    So the squirrels are a poor second class next to the beloved birds? I protest on behalf of the squirrels.


    1. Actually, I like the squirrels. They are cute and don't poop on my car.

  2. I'm with you, Celeste! I was never a fan of Seinfeld and found the characters mean-spirited and nasty. When George bought cheap wedding invitations and the glue poisoned and killed his fiancee and he was RELIEVED because he didn't have to get married, I stopped watching the show.

    Good questions you asked!

    1. If you and Ana and I didn't watch, how'd the show get so popular?

  3. Thank you so much for sharing. So interesting getting a more personal look at all our favorite authors. I don't like olives either, except when they are gracing a martini..... Can't wait for the "thwack, smack, crack" of a tale....

  4. Ha ha great! I am terrible about returning library books. I do not borrow any.
    Worst date.... at the end... I walked home alone, along a cornfield in the middle of the night. Can I say AWFUL?!

    1. Wow, Minelle. That sure is a bad date. At least you didn't have to wonder if he thought it went well. LOL

    2. Hate to say but he had absolutely no clue! I may tell it in a story!

  5. Interesting facts! Especially the bit about your ancestors on the Mayflower. Are you into genealogy?

    1. I'm not really into it, but my mom did all the research years ago.


I love getting feedback. Thank you for taking the time to comment!
