One Lovely Blog Award

I was given the One Lovely Blog Award from the lovely Donna Yates. Thank you, Donna!

Now, Donna didn't have the rules posted, so I Googled them. I have to give 7 random facts about myself. Eek, you guys are going to know my life story soon!
  1. I was usually two years younger than my classmates in school because I started at 4 years old.
  2. I've cried while writing my own novels. (I've also laughed out loud while revising.)
  3. I'd rather eat cookie batter than cookies.
  4. I've been known to laugh out loud while alone in the bathroom. Something about that room makes me think about weird things. :P 
  5. I hate alarm clocks so I sleep with my running watch on.
  6. While growing up, I went to the Caribbean quite a bit. (Bahamas, St. Thomas, Aruba, St. Croix, St. John--each twice, with the exception of Aruba) Thank you, Mom and Dad!
  7. I read while watching TV because I don't like commercials.
And now the people I'm passing this award on to:

Your turn. Either share one random fact about yourself or recommend one blog that should get this award so we can all check it out.

  1. I hate commercials too. I did peg you for a multitasked! How can you not be? Congrats on the award. You are lovely!

    2. Guess I'm "Old School" for my age on this subject. I like to do one, at most two things at a time, or I'm a clumsy basket case, and being an emotional basket case with a short fuse on patience, is more than enough baggage for me to deal with already, thank you very much.

    3. There's nothing wrong with liking to tackle one thing at a time. A lot of people are like that.

    2. I personally like cookies better baked.

      But I will admit to liking cheesecake filling, but only homemade (I made a homemade cheesecake yesterday, had to wait until it was chilled before I could eat it), and only a lick or two. I still prefer the fully baked version, I find no-bake cheesecake on average a bit off putting.

      Delete
    3. I love cheesecake but rarely eat it. I could really go for a slice right about now.

  10. Ahh, I love these facts about you. You sound quirky, just as a writer should be to develop all those plots that come to us.

    1. Quirky is a good word for me. My motto is "If you're not weird, you're boring." I don't want to be boring. ;)

  11. I love cookie dough. I usually have to stop myself or I'll pig out. Congrats on the award!

  15. You are tooooooo sweet!

    One random fact: Today is my birthday. Woot!

  16. Cool. I can relate to number 2 and 3. I've been known to laugh out loud in public when I'm by myself.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm so glad you admitted to that. I can't help myself. I think of funny things in weird places and I burst out laughing.

      Delete
  17. I also read while watching TV. I read while doing most things. I promise not to read while driving, but with anything else, all bets are off.

    1. Yeah, I'd never attempt reading while driving. I have seen people do it, and it's scary.

      Delete
  18. Congrats on the award.

    I sometimes laugh out loud when I'm alone, anywhere. I think about things that happened recently that are funny and can't help myself.

    I sometimes read and write while the TV is on for background sound (I can't have it quiet all the time).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, I like background noise while I read. When I write, I prefer quiet though I can deal with background noise if necessary.

  19. What fun! I enjoyed finding out some more facts about you. I also love cookie dough way more than baked cookies. I also don't like commercials and read during them! Glad to know I am not alone. I look forward to checking out the pages you nominated. :)

  23. One random thing about myself?
    You said "I've cried while writing my own novels. (I've also laughed out loud while revising.)" I laugh when people find my life story sad, I really do, as I imagine their face if they knew the full story!!!

    1. I think sometimes it's hard to contemplate what others endure in their lives. What one person has the strength to overcome would make another person crumble. Life is funny like that.

      Delete
  24. I think you're right, pretty soon we're going to know all of your secrets. I always feel so terrible about passing on awards. Thus, I never do for fear people will become annoyed with me. On another note, I can't think of anyone nice or more deserving than you.
