Catching up

It seems I have a lot of that to do.  Leaving my friends' blog posts alone for a week or so is a dangerous thing.  I knew they had lives of their own but when you're not looking they seem to just 'splode with activity.

Some unexpected activity was receiving the Kreativ Blogger award - twice!  I am doubly honored by Sue at I Refuse to Go Quietly and ladydragonfly at The World of Julie B.  Of course, there are obligations that go with honor:  I have to answer a few specific questions and then tell you even more random stuff about myself.  Let's start with the questions...

What is your favorite song?  Too hard.  All time fave?  Probably Elvis singing "How Great Thou Art'.  I can't give you a modern song because I don't listen to the popular music much any more.  Trying to cast my mind back to my youth would bring me to the Beatles and 'Something'.

What is your favorite dessert?  That's easy.  It's always been creme caramel.  If it's accidently brulee'd, I'm OK with that, too. 

What ticks you off?  Intolerance - in all its many forms and excuses.

When you're upset what do you do?  Usually get quiet.  Definitely need to leave the scene of the crime.

Which is/was your favorite pet? I think one's first remembered pet is always the favorite. That would have to be our big old Collie-cross that we got as a pup when I was about 3.   Rex was our guard-dog.  He guarded my younger brother and I from ourselves.  We were good explorers and Mom always knew where to find us.  She could see his big husky-type tail waving over our heads.  

Which do you prefer to wear: black or white?  Black.

What is your biggest fear?  Falling - and not without reason.  It seems that is not only my biggest fear but one of my inborn talents.  I've been able to fall over nothing at all since I was able to walk.

What is your attitude, mostly?  I'm a glass half-full kind of girl.

What is perfection?  A baby.

What is your guilty pleasure?  Dark chocolate - taken for medicinal reasons, of course. 

That's all the questions done.  Now for the random stuff...I'm going to leave that until tomorrow.  I have to think hard to come up with ten things you don't already know about me.

Look forward to the random stuff, too!! I have to chuckle... one of my pet peaves is intolerance... it has always struck me as rather ironic that I am soooo intolerant of intolerance. ;) blessings ~ tanna

I love learning more things about my fellow bloggers! Yes, one of my biggest fears is falling, not only because of getting hurt, but then I can't get up. I love your yellow umbrellas and letter covered car!

Looking forward to ten new things. I'm with you on the dark chocolate.

Stephanie, you are brilliant! Definitely deserving of a double award! And thank you for your kind words on my blog; it cheers me up enormously to know what lovely people there are in the world :-)
