I Always Knew I Was A Little Over The Top

Vraz60 from Just For The Hell-th Of It!! has offered the prestigious Over The Top Award to any of the online journals that she reads, and since I am listed on her blog roll I just couldn’t turn down the opportunity to snag another of these pretty badges for my sidebar. Really, what it comes down to, is that I get a lot of motivation from these accolades and am more than willing to use their power of encouragement to the fullest. So thank you very much, Verleen!

As with nearly all of these wonderful tools of recognition, I am required to follow a few simple instructions. In this case, I need to answer a series of questions with one-word answers and then choose and notify a number of notable blogs to carry this forward. On with it then…

2. Your hair? Simple
3. Your mother? Creative
4. Your father? Intelligent

33. One place that I go to over and over? Ocean
34. One person who emails me regularly? Inlaws
35. Favorite place to eat? Keg

The fun, although somewhat stressful, part of these awards is passing them onto other blogs. I am limited to six on this particular occasion, so - even though I still stand firm on the fact that I enjoy all of the online journals that I read - I would like to end this post by recognizing the following few:

Edit: I had to laugh out loud, because Larkspur from Am I Really This Fat? just informed me that she was linking this same award to my page as I was linking it to hers! So, thank you so much, Larkspur, for also presenting me with this great honour!


  1. Did you hear me laugh? I was just linking you for the same award!

  2. LMAO!!! Wow, we must have been on each others pages at the same time!!!

  3. Yay on a great award and I love your answers - and what, no cellphone?

    If I hadn't been a bit lazy, more decisive and not a rule-breaker, then I would have awarded you it as well! But I couldn't handle just picking 6 people and chickened out, lol!

  4. Thanks, and it is true... I am the last non-cellphone user in the world.
