Awards, a Meme and a Tune for Tuesday, er Wednesday

What a flurry of activity for my blog this week. Elliah Terry at Funny Poetry Girl has awarded me the Lovely Blog award (Thanks, Elliah!) and Brenda at Hazel's Crock Pot Kitchen has awarded me the Kreativ Blogger award, too! (Thank you, Brenda!) I appreciate you both giving me a shout out! Also, thank you to YA author, Suzanne Young. She sent me Carrie Ryan's The Forest of Hands and Teeth as a prize for her blog contest. I will be reading that this summer! Suzanne has another contest that ends today! I was also tagged by Elliah and Paul Michael Murphy with this sinful meme! I really am a terrible liar, so let’s see what I can come up with!!
"Sometimes you can learn more about a person by what they don’t tell you. Sometimes you can learn a lot from the things they just make up. If you are tagged with this Meme, lie to me. Then tag 7 other folks (one for each deadly sin) and hope they can lie."

Pride -- What is your biggest contribution to the world?
My OCD cleaning habit. I must scrub my house and everyone else’s that I visit.

Envy -- What do your coworkers have that you wish was yours?
At my old teaching job, I wished I could drive that big ole bus with all the kids on it.

Gluttony -- What did you eat last night?
A stick of celery with a glass of diet Pepsi.

Lust -- What really lights your fire?
Blonde bodybuilders with bulging muscles that talk all day about their workout regime.

Anger -- What is the last thing that really pissed you off?
When trick or treaters came asking for candy. Get your own darn candy!

Greed -- Name something you hoard and keep from others.
Pokemon cards. I have 7 Stunkys and 10 Totodiles!

Sloth -- What’s the laziest thing you ever did?
Quitting my job to be a stay at home mom. I mean that’s not work at all!
I tag YOU if you’d like to join in on the lyin’ fun!

Today’s tune is “A Beautiful Lie” by 30 Seconds to Mars. The scenery is beautiful in this video (and I’m not just talking about Jared Leto).

Congrats on the awards, your blog and poems are great. Jared Leto is hot too, he just got a little too freaky for me, looks like he's toned it down.

Kim Kasch said...

OMG Sloth . . . NOT.

You and I both know that your "occupation" is the hardest job you'll ever love.

Carrie Harris said...

Face it, woman. You're popular. Can I nominate you for Homecoming Queen? :)

adrienne said...

That meme is such fun! Great answers...who could resist a big bus full of kids? :D

Suzanne Casamento said...

A stick of celery with a glass of Diet Pepsi? You make a terrible glutton!

Anita said...

I love the stay-at-home line the best! Hah!

Christina Farley said...

Congrats on all your awards. You are feeling the love girl! And I'm jealous of that Hands and Feet book. And that's no lie.

Loved your post. So funny about quiting your job to relax. And the celery and diet Pepsi! Oh gosh, you are just too perfect.

Nora MacFarlane said...

Good job! LOL

Suzanne Casamento said...

Let's talk Leto: I've bumped into him three times and every time he's been ridiculously hot - even in the supermarket.

Just sayin'. ; )

Rena said...

LOL @ a celery stick and Diet Pepsi! Yeah, me too ... ;)

Kelly said...

Suzanne- I MUST grocery shop with you sometime!
And Rena, Christina- I am so not a dieter so I thought that celery and Diet Pepsi was the biggest lie I could make! :)
