Creative? Me?


I’m blushing. Mrs. K has gone and awarded me the Kreativ Blogger award. I feel quite honored and feel more grateful than I can say to receive this award. However, it comes at a very awkward time for me. You see, I’m not feeling very creative lately and am finding it hard to come up with much of anything to say here. Writer’s block, I guess you could say. Nevertheless, the award was given and while MrsK may be rethinking her decision at this point I’m keeping it deserved or not.

I’ve been sitting on this award for a few days because with it comes a task that I found a wee bit daunting. I am to list seven interesting facts about myself. At this point in my blogging career, with 250 (this one) posts in a little over a year, I’ve already spouted on and on about all the interesting facts about moi. I finally managed to come up with a few more facts that I haven’t mentioned before.

1. I can peel an apple in one long curly strip.

2. I once saw a cow flying through the air.

3. I blew up the bank…….with a cat.

4. I once wore a sweater that said, “Non profit layers do it for free.”

5. I hung up on the President of the United States.

6. I picked up my friend’s horrible Prada knock-off wallet by mistake. This turned out to be the key to finding my one true love. Well, that and leaving my jacket on a park bench.

7. Confession: I have read Pride and Prejudice about 200 times. I get lost in the language; words like thither... mischance... I'm always in agony over whether Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are really going to get together. Read it, I know you'll love it!

What? That wasn’t me? I guess my dvd player has been in overdrive lately and I’m confusing my own dull, boring life with the characters in some of my favorite films. If you can name the characters and movies in the above “7 interesting facts about me”, you will win a prize. Not a gift card, or a valuable item of interest but instead my undying friendship as surely we must be soul-mates.

What? That is SO a prize, dammit!

This award like all awards comes with rules and they are as follows:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award-Thanks, Mrs K. You are too sweet to me.
2. Copy logo and place it on your blog- DONE!
3. Link the person who nominated you- DONE
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting- OOPS!
5. Nominate 7 Creative Bloggers- I’m tagging YOU, YOU, YOU, YOU, YOU, YOU & YOU!
6. Post with links- Oh dear, I’m way to writer’s blockized lazy for that.
7. Let them know they got the prize-Consider this ME letting YOU know I’ve tagged YOU for this award!

Cheating? Me? Hey, I never claimed to play by the rules.

Rules are for sissy's.
Way to balk at the conformity!

Congratulations too. You do deserve it.

only a movie said...

Thinking of all those movie reference is certainly creative, my dear. I wish I could focus enough to watch one damn movie let alone try to think of what the answers are to yours...
Hope your Sunday is going well. Congrats on the award.

blueviolet said...

I'm not one for the rules either but I do know that you more than deserve the award!Congratulations!

Beth said...

Seriously, you are 250 blog posts old now?! I'm impressed.

Congratulations on the award. I do think you are creative. Who else would come up with movie references instead of personal info?

Gaston Studio said...

Congrats on being a Kreative Blogger. Unbelievable that you've posted over 250 times, I'm going to be older and grayer by the time that rolls around for me.

F8-A woman after my own heart!

Movie-You need to sit down and watch a good movie. It would do you a world of good. Nothing too serious either.

BV-I try, I really do. I can't follow a recipe either.

Beth-Thanks and Yep, today was 250. I just happen to notice.

Jane-It happens before you know it.

Otin-I think you may have lost your man card. LOL Truth is, My Harley Stud could have named every one as he is often hostage to our chick flick festivals. And now you have my undying affection and are considered a soul-mate. Hugs!

I can add to his list that

I only knew one of those movies and I KNOW you can guess which one. We see cows flying through the air all the time here in tornado alley. NOT.

Yes, you're creative and yes I love pride and prejudice and in fact all of Jane Austen's books and right now I'm reading Northanger Abby.

And before you baby yet.

Kimberly said...

Um...that would be You've Got Mail and congrats on your fabulous award!

Mrs. K said...

oh my gosh you are evil!! what is number 7??? it can't be you've got mail because that's not how they met...what is it?

Auntie, aka Coco's Mom said...

Duh....And I thought those seven things were TRUE about YOU!!!I am so dumb!!!
Very interesting twist, my dear.
Please proved the answers soon.

I don't know a darned one of them..but I'm not worried! I am totally secure in your love! :):)
(I ALWAYS use charm when my brain fails me and it fails me a lot lately!)

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I thought this was very creative. I bet I have seen every one of the movies but am not able to put two and two together.

Having a lot of mid life moments with the brain lately. Especially since I had to turn it on for work, it has turned off for most all else.

Hope your weekend was relaxing and lovely.

I know none of the movies. I don't get out much.
