An Award- Over the Top

Darlene, who writes the very good blog Darlene's Hodgepodge gave me an award. The title of the award is Over The Top. The deal is: you have to answer the questions with one word and then pass on the award to three other blogs.

Okay, here goes.

1. Where is your cell phone? in my pocket
2. Your hair? gray
3. Your mother? dead
4. Your father? dead
5. Your favorite food? mashed potatoes
6. Your dream last night? can't remember any
7. Your favorite drink? coffee
8. Your dream/goal? longevity (that's a good answer, Darlene, so I'll keep it)
9. What room are you in? office/bonus room
10. Your hobby? blogging
11. Your fear? blindness
12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? alive and well
13. Where were you last night? home
14. Something you aren’t? athletic (another good one!)
15. Muffins? lemon poppyseed
16. Wish list item? a new computer
17. Where did you grow up? West Virginia
18. Last thing you did? read blogs
19. What are you wearing? black pants and t-shirt
20. Your TV? watching Oprah, and Adam Lambert
21. Your pet(s)? two black cats
22. Your friends? great!
23. Your life? quiet
24. Your mood? okay
25. Missing someone? yes
26. Vehicle? mini-van
27. Something you’re not wearing? jewelry
28. Your favorite store? TJMaxx
29. Your favorite color? green
30. When was the last time you laughed? today
31. Last time you cried? Thursday
32. Your best friend? Cam
33. One place that I go over and over? grocery
34. One person who emails me regularly? Sandra
35. Favorite place to eat? any seafood place

And there you have it. I pass this award on to:

1. Patti, who writes The New Sixty. If you are not aware of Patti's blog, do yourself a favor and go comb through her archives. A master storyteller, that one!!

2. Goldendaze-Ginnie is another good storyteller; a blogger whom I have met and enjoyed very much. She is "under read", in my opinion, and needs encouragement to write more often.

3. I decided to stop at two. There are so many others to whom I might give this award, that I can't decide who deserves it most.


Stop the presses!! At 11pm, I discovered that I had also received this award from Maria, of Silver Fox Whispers. Thanks, Maria!! I hope you don't mind sharing the thanks with Darlene.

Odd, but after reading through your list I cannot remember the last time I cried...even from a movie and I used to cry at them almost all the time!

Thanks for the blog recommendations and congrats on the award!

Arkansas Patti said...

Wow, thank you so much for the really kind words and award. Cripes, now I really have to try much harder to live up to them.
Loved your answers and realize that a one word answer is brutal for wordy blogger types. Ya done good. Not sure I can do one word but will try.
Now I have to go visit Goldendaze.
Thanks again Judy.

Ginnie said...

Congratulations on the award, Judy, and I appreciate the kind words that you wrote about my blog.
I feel ungrateful not accepting the pass-on of the award but I determined early on to concentrate in my blog on small vignettes of either my life or my impressions of life and I thnk the only time I ever broke that was when you gave people a letter of the alphabet and we had to choose 10 things that were our favorites that started with that letter!! That was enough to prove to me that I much prefer the writing of prose to answering questions.
Thanks anyway, Hugs...

Good answers, Judy.

Great questions and GREAT Answers, too...! It is not always easy to answer with one word....lol!

awareness said...

Great answers....that would be a difficult thing to do.....one word answers.

Pat said...

Lemon poppy seed muffins? Only in America:)
Is there a man who could answer in one word I wonder?
