Ah, the Bling

Today, I would like to thank my fellow bloggers for their gracious and giving natures. Especially for being gracious and giving me awards. (Tee Hee Hee.)

I received the Versatile Blogger award from Anita at A Still And Quiet Madness and from Krista at Mother. Write. Repeat.
There are rules for this award.They are as follows:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated me.
2. Share seven random facts about myself.
3. Pass the award along to 5 new-found blogging buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

I will be passing this award on to
1. Ariel at My Writers Craze
2. Ashley Nixon
3. Angie Paxton at Answering the What if
4. DB Smyth at WordSmything
5. Liesl at Writer Ropes and Hopes

I also received the Stylish Blogger award from Jennifer Archer.

Here are the rules of this award:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself on your blog.
3. Pass the award along to five buddies whose blogs epitomize said theme.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

I will now confer this award upon (can you tell that I just spent time at my brother's college graduation?):
1. Mary Frame at It's all fun and games until someone gets an agent
2. Mary Baader Kaley at Not An Editor
3. Angela at Angela Write Now
4. Annie at Hyperblogic
5. Jennilyn Tolley

And since both awards require 7 things, I'm combining them. That's right, friends. You are only going to get 7 things out of me today. Hope you enjoy.

7 Things About Kayeleen, the OCD version

1. I am a musical person. I sing a lot. I've even been in several choirs. I also play the piano, but never in front of people, if I can possibly help it. The perfectionist in me has issues with playing piano because it makes me nervous and I make mistakes.

2. I have to flip lightswitches to be the same direction. You know. If there are two switches on the same panel, they all need to be up or down. I'll walk back and forth around the house to do this.

3. I can't stand sticky floors. There is a weird fear in the back of my mind that I will stick to the floor and be unable to move. I have to mop for this reason. Not every day, but when I start to stick to the floor.

4. I am really glad to not have carpets in the majority of my house. Just like I can't handle sticky floors, I never knew what was in my carpet until we had wood floors. As soft as carpet is, I don't think I can ever go back.

5. If I have a pocket full of money, all the bills have to face the same direction. They also have to be in order from smallest bill to biggest. It bothers me to have a wad of bills in my wallet and not be able to just find the one I want.

6. My hair is short. It has been noticeably short for nearly 10 years. This is because I can't stand the way hair tickles the back of my neck as it grows.  Every once in a while, I think: "I'm going to grow my hair out." It drives me nuts before I can get it past my chin.

7. I'm extremely ticklish. Not like just touch my side and I shriek. It's worse. People can wave their fingers at me and I giggle uncontrollably. Even from across the room. My brother perfected this thing where he would look at me with a certain look and I knew he was thinking tickle. That set off my ticklish. If I'm fairly sure someone is thinking about tickling me, I'll start to laugh.

There you have it, all. Happy Wednesday and congrats to the new winners! I have recently discovered each of them and enjoy reading what they have to say. Go forth, friends. Meet new bloggers!

Thanks Kayeleen! I totally have the same ticklish thing!

Hey, are you in Cedar City? That's where my mom lives now so I go there quite often.

Ashley Nixon said...

Thank you so much, Kayeleen!! I love it. :)

I'm extremely ticklish. Ugh. It's horrible!!

Marewolf said...

Thank you so much! I love your seven things. I did seven things awhile ago, and one of them was that I WISHED I could sing. I fantasize about it, actually, and if you can do it girl you should! Let it out :)

Also, I'm a little creeped out because I see you have a blog post entitled "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" and I did one with the SAME EXACT TITLE.

That really tripped me out !

Anyways, thanks again and lovely to meet you and I will now go stalk you on twitter (it's what I do, it's like my thing)

Jenilyn Tolley said...

Thanks, Kayeleen!

I'm the same with the ticklish thing, too! It's awful. And the light switch thing is an issue for me as well. I hate it, though, when I can't get them all the same way. It's torture. :)

Marybk said...

Thank you so much, Kayeleen!

I hate sticky floors, play piano but not in front of people, am extremely ticklish, and prefer my lightswitches to be coordinated as well. It's like we're related!!!

Congrats to all the winners! I'll be doing some fun.

You are hysterical.
I sing, too. Couldn't imagine life without that. Also, there is ONE room in my house with carpet. ONE. And it's small.
I too, will never go back.

Jennifer said...

One of my best friends has the same thing with bills! And when she plays cards, they all have to be a certain way in her hand. Also, gum must be pulled from the pack in order. If someone pulls gum out of the middle of the pack, out of order, she gives the pack away. :-)

Thanks so much, Kayeleen! I appreciate you thinking of me! I too am crazy ticklish. Fun for others... not so much for me. :)
