I received this wonderful award from a truly lovely woman named Kim. You can find her blog here. I met Kim in Swap-Bot, we both participated in the same swap, (more about Swap-Bot later) and I cannot thank her enough for this award. I was feeling as though no one was reading me (because of a glitch in my comments had me not getting them). Then, when I noticed the comment glitch as I was adding a tag cloud to my sidebar... there, nestled among a plethora of other wonderful comments, was this award from KIM. My new friend. :o)
1. I didn't start liking coffee until I was, like, thirty. Now, finally, I can participate in the whole "coffee" movement. You know, the "coffee with friends" thing? It's just not the same with tea. Sad, but true. Tea is comfort, coffee is social. Tea is for melancholy days where it's raining outside and you have nowhere to go. Coffee would actually work then too, but you gotta use tea sometime... or it'll get lonely, sitting unused and dressed in it's pretty little tea sachets. We can't have that, now can we??
2. I like ice cream. No, that's not the revelation. The flavor that I like is the part I'm gonna reveal. *Jenn hangs her head in utter embarrassment* It's an unusual flavor to like... at my age. Ok, it's downright weird. Most people grow out of liking it by the time they're 5. I can't help it, though, it's so yummy. And it's not just the flavor I love, it's also the color. But I like the flavor so much that I dream about it when summer comes. It's hard to find, though, so killing summer cravings is difficult. I suffer. This is me, standing up in an Alcohol Anonymous-like setting and confessing that...
3. I have a slight nail polish obsession and I'm terribly vain about my nails. I decided a few years ago that I'd allow myself one physical characteristic that I could be all "ooh, I'm sooo purrrrty" about. I chose my nails. (this includes my toes too. Hey, they have nails, that's not breaking the rules!) I try to keep my nail polish stash down to a reasonable size by limiting the brands I purchase, if I didn't I'd have hundreds and hundreds of bottles. To use up my polish (and because I've gotten really good at it) I do my mom's and my friend's nails. We combine coffee and mani's. And a good time is had by all. (There are so many tricks the layman doesn't know about doing a great manicure!)
lightening, being out there (we lived on the Prairies). My mom would laugh, knowing there was nothing she could do to extinguish my bliss. What she did do was entice me in with the promise of hot chocolate, marshmallows and warm pajamas.
