And I’d Like To Thank….

Woot woot! I got another blog award. So exciting! This one came from Honey B, and here’s how this award goes down:

1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog
3. Link to the person who nominated me for this award
4. Share 7 interesting things about myself
5. Nominate 7 bloggers

7 Interesting Things About Me

1. I cannot stand for the inside of my ears to be wet. After showering, I will swab a Q-Tip around to make sure they’re dry.
2. I’ve gotten into playing a video game I never thought I’d enjoy: Gears of War 2. I play it with my husband.
3. Those ASPCA commercials with the Sarah McLaughlin song playing bother me so much, I will scramble to get the remote from wherever it is in an attempt to switch the channel before I can see too many sad puppy/kitten eyes staring at me.
4. I love my birthday. It’s the one day out of the year that’s a holiday just for me.
5. Off-key singing makes me want to cry. I’m not talking the tone-deaf jokers on American Idol, I’m talking when someone is just slightly sharp, or slightly flat. It’s like nails on a chalkboard to me.
6. When I was little, I demanded that my family call me Jasmin (after Princess Jasmin in the movie Aladdin) for a week.
7. I think that certain movies need to be shown in high schools. Schindler’s List, American History X, Requiem for a Dream.. Schindler’s List shows the brutal horror of the holocaust, American History X shows the brutality and screwed up nature of racism and Requiem will scare anyone away from EVER TRYING DRUGS.

And, I am passing this award on to:

Thanks again to Honey B for this award!


  1. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Congratulations and thank you so much!!!!

  2. Ohhh, those ads make me cry! Marmot lunges for the remote every time, because I completely fall apart and can't turn it off!

  3. I do THE SAME THING when those ASPCA commercials come on, because if I don't change the channel and FAST, I *WILL* be in tears. Period.

  4. I second the first one in your list… I do the same thing! Your seventh one is just way too hilarious. You're right, if they do implement this it would shock the socks off those kids.

  5. Stopping by from SITS. I had to come and visit based on your comment at SITS. I too work at a college and PRAY for snow days. I'm in MI though, so the snow days are few and far between because we're so used to snow.Cute blog and congrats on your award!

  6. I'm also with you on those commercials, however, I usually just mute it and close my eyes until I think it's over.

  7. Tina Lane says:

    Congrats on your award!Haven't we all got sucked into video games with the Hubs? My favorite: Lego Indiana Jones.Thanks for visiting my blog. Look forward to reading about your bun in the oven.

  8. Just found your blog – it's cute! (Congrats on being pregnant!)Your #6 reminded me of my little sister. When she was probably 7 years old, she demanded that everyone call her "Shanaynay" from the show "Martin." It was quite obnoxious.

  9. I hate when I can hear moisture in my ears. It makes me crazy. The Sarah McLachlan commercials make me all weepy and remind me why my husband and I are shelter people. We adopt shelter animals ONLY. And I love your view on those movies. Thank you for the award, Natalie!

  10. The Blonde Duck says:

    Popped in from SITS to say hi!

  11. JDaniel4's Mom says:

    I do the same thing with Q-tips! Stopping by from SITS!

  12. Busted Kate says:

    Wahooooo!!!! Natalie, you make my heart happy. And give it hope, which isn't too easy to do these days! Thank you sooooo much for the award, I'm honored. When I get my site back up and running, I'll be so happy to pass it on!
