An Award!

Cleopatra Loves Books has glammed up this joint with this lovely Shine On Award. Thank you so much!

Here are the rules of the award:
1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog, and link back.
3. Share seven random, interesting things about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.

Now for the seven random facts about me:

•  I cry very easily at the movies, but not in my own life. I have no idea why that is.

•  Batman as played by Adam West is now and always has been my favorite superhero.

•  I got my first professional pedicure on the rooftop of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, site of the first Academy Awards. (I included this because it makes me sound glamorous enough to deserve the award.)

•   I really hate my condo these days. It needs so much work (paint and plaster and new drapes and ...). I suspect it may be a metaphor for my life.

•  Even though my Cubs are currently 24 games out of first place, I feel guilty if I don't watch their games. (They lost to the Braves today while I was at the mall.)

•  I love singing with my shower radio while I'm washing my hair.

•  I have "chemistry" with my books. Either we hit it off right away, on page one, or we never will.

Now to nominate other bloggers --

Angel the Alien

Sittin' on a Backyard Fence
