The ‘Shine On’ Award, Part Two


Caterina at kissmeunderthepinkblossomtree nominated me! Thank you, Caterina!

The rules are:

1. Display the award logo on your website.
2. Link back to the person who kindly nominated you.
3. Share seven things about your lovely self.
4. Choose fifteen bloggers to nominate for this award, and ensure you link them back to the award page.

As for choosing 15 bloggers to nominate, I really have a hard time with that, because there are so many great bloggers out there that I read. So if you like, and if you follow me, consider yourself nominated, and continue to Shine On!

Seven Things About Me:

1. I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide. My face breaks out in a red rash when I use it. That means I cannot use cleansers like Proactiv or Murad as part of my beauty regimen. And, believe me, I tried.

2. The “Peter Gunn Theme” scares me. Always has, ever since I was a little kid. Couldn’t tell you why.

3. Speaking of being scared as a kid, Cindy and I got to talking during my lesson Tuesday night about “The Wizard of Oz.” When I was a kid, I was not scared of the Wicked Witch, or the flying monkeys, or the Wizard’s big floating head, or even the talking trees (which Cindy was afraid of). Nope. What scared me most about “The Wizard of Oz” was the Lion jumping through the window. I think the ‘fade to black’ end of the scene had a lot to do with it.

4. When it comes to DVDs, I am a fan of widescreen. You see the whole picture that way.

5. Once, when Older Sister and I were really little, we were running into the house after playing outside. And both of us froze in the doorway, because sitting in our living room was a lady with blue hair. I’m not kidding – she had blue hair! I think it was some sort of hair treatment or something, ‘bluing’ I think they call it. Funnily enough, nobody else in the family remembers her except me.

6. For as good as my memory is, I tend to forget a lot. I’ve been told I’m ‘sharp but scatterbrained.’ Yeah, that about sums it up. =)

7. Some favorite smells: burning leaves, lilacs, lavender, vanilla, carnations, rain, roses, snow, fresh cut grass, clean laundry.

Until tomorrow!
