And now for the also completely undeserved Kreativ Blogger Award. Thank You again WiseGuy!

More rules:
1) Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2) Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3) Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4) Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5) Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6) Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7) Leave a comment on each.

Seven Things that People May Not Know About Me:

1. I am a perfectionist and a control-freak. Hang on, you'd probably gathered that already.

2. I think I am fat but my weight/BMI is perfect. Dysmorphic much? (Thanks Mum!)

3. I wanted to be a clinical neuropsychologist and I've worked for 8 years to get into the doctorate, but now I'm so close I don't want to do it any more.

4. My husband is completely wonderful and deliciously sweet and he recently arrived home with new clothes he'd spontaneously bought for me because "they had a sale on". And they're even nice clothes that fit me and look good!!!

5. I cannot reconcile short-sleeve tops with hoods. Hoods are for cold weather. Short-sleeves are for warm weather. WTF is going on with short-sleeve hoodies???

6. I learned the flute when I was in high-school and my teacher said I had promise. But I wouldn't march in time to the metronome - we had an argument about that and I stopped playing. Imagine, marching along to a metronome. Could she have thought of a better way to make poor 14yr old me feel like a complete dickhead? Silly me.

7. I don't like eating in the morning. Before 10am anyway.

And the nominees are a mixed bag of writers I love, food I eat and presentations I aspire to...
Eat Me, Delicious
Catherine Newman
Annie's Eats
In a Beautiful Pea Green Boat
May I Say Something
Presentation Zen
Mimi Smartypants


  1. Thank you dear, for the kind blog award. I shall get busy on that in the next few days...

  2. There is a definite clickety-clack in your blog...and I love it.

    I never leave home unless I have had something to eat, and I leave by 8:30/9 on workdays! I have always been the hungry-in-the-morning-bee.

  3. Aww. Thanks :-). About the BMI thing same here..perfect weight/BMI but I do feel and i think look fat. Wonder whats up with that.

  4. Well thanks! Now I have some time will go and have a go at a list of my own!

  5. thank you so much for the award! You are so sweet to include me on your list.

    Just by the way- I do acupuncture and truly believe it has made me healthier-- and there is simply no down side except the needle insertions and having to lie there listening to my brain babble for an hour.

    wishing you peace and diversion and a cycle soon- I find it much easier to be in the midst of than be waiting.
