Patrick over at Responsibility 199 gave me an Adorable Blog Award! Thank you Patrick!!!

I feel like Patrick and I have a lot in common, despite some pretty obvious differences between us. First and most importantly, we share an unyielding love of Eeyores, and we both have a rather stunning amount of Eeyore paraphernalia as adults.  Secondly, Patrick lives close to my hometown, so I feel a bit of a kinship with him, kind of like he must get where I’m coming from, if for nothing else than because he IS where I came from, literally. Anyway, I do adore me some Patrick, and if you haven’t checked out his blog yet you should. CLICK HERE!

Rules of the Award
*Thank the person who gave you this award, and link back to them in your post.
*Tell us 10 things about yourself.
*Nominate your bloggers.
*Contact these bloggers, and let them know they received this award.

Okey doke. So onto 10 things about me:
1. I’m trying to stop biting my nails. I’ve gone about a month without biting them, which might be the longest time ever. I’ve tried to stop before, but they are always so weak and tear off, which is 10 times more painful than mere biting, so I end up going back to my old habits. Hopefully this time will be the break I need!
2. I don’t remember the last time I went to the grocery store. 2 weeks ago? 4? I’m starting to eat all the canned stuff in my cabinet that has been sitting there for a really long time.
3. I’m terribly crowd-a-phobic. In Vegas I ran into an enormous crowd in the MGM Casino. I ended up crouched against a wall hyperventilating until I worked up enough courage to fight the crowds and get the hell out of there. My problem is when people infringe on my personal space.
4. I’m afraid of my own cleavage.
5. I enjoy silence and solitude.
6. Amelie is one of my favorite movies, and I love quirky little things, like running your fingers through a bag of beans, or twirling in circles until you feel dizzy.
7. I drink my milk with ice.
8. I hate books and movies that have “happy endings” that end with someone having a baby. Drives me nuts.
9. I really like my NOOK, even though I swore up and down that I’d never get an E-reader, much less USE it or ENJOY it.
10. There’s a drug in marijuana that triggers your brain and gives you the munchies. I never understood why they couldn’t create a drug that just reverses that process, triggering the same part of your brain so you’re not hungry?

And now to pass on the blog award to a few other people! I’ve discovered a few new blogs recently and have really enjoyed getting to know some new faces. Please take a moment to check out these new bloggers, too!

I’m always looking for new blogs to read and follow, so if you’re reading this now, please link me up to your blog! Put the URL in your comment! (I can’t always find it by going through your blogger profile and whatnot.)

    I loved your Vegas post – such great pictures you posted!!  And you look AMAZING!  You truly do – so tiny but you look strong.  That’s what I want to look like.  Not skinny – I want to be normal sized but strong. :)  I’m really enjoying your blog!
