You girls know the rules...
Most of you do anyway..
Ya gotta grab this button..
and then spill your guts..
about 7 things no one
knows about you.
Yeah...but if I TELL them
then they'll KNOW?
Is that how this works?
Well...leave it up to Laurie
over at Heaven's Walk
to stick me with this sucker.
She is just trying to find out my
secrets so she can blackmail me..
I know her better than she thinks I do!
So...after I confess my every sin and unmentionable act..
What? Oh! It's not THAT kind of things you want to know?
Well...it IS...you know it is...but..baby..
THAT ain't gonna happen..
No sireeee...You are getting the watered down
version of my life.
Anyway...AFTER this I get to stick some other
poor unsuspecting soul with the task of
revealing everything they dare tell about themselves.
1. Back in "the day"-don't you love that expression..Anyway, back in the day
when I was young and cute...
my first big REAL job was working for WBBH TV20
in Ft.Myers, FL. I even made a few little commercials
and was the Lee Carpet Girl (Lord how embarrassing that sounds now)
for a while.
2. I rode in the Edison Parade of Lights (in a ball gown)
on a float with Ronald McDonald. Nuff said!
3. I was the first WOMAN sales rep in the Southern USA for
Georgia-Pacific corp. I sold lumber to MEN in a world where
WOMEN did not sell LUMBER to men.
That's where I met MyHero...I'm not sure who sold whom a bill
of goods. (don't you love working whom into a sentence)
4. I was decorating before it became a "craze". I talked my
friend in Florida into selling all her fine things and she "countried up"
her house. Her relatives came from out of state and asked her if they had
lost all their money and did they have enough to eat...
yeah...I'm still laughing about that!
5. Hmmmm...this is no easy task...it's like..okay..I COULD
tell this..but do I really want people to KNOW...yeah..
Let's see....Working at my job in the hospital is one of the most
rewarding things I have ever done...it is also one of the most
heartbreaking...sometimes I go into the back room so I don't lose
it in front of a patient.
6. I like to drive. I drive everywhere. MyHero likes to ride. He rides everywhere.
I am the Princess Driver. I think it would be fun to drive one
of those stinking tourist buses around and tell people facts about the area.
I would have to live somewhere else to do this because this area is
all about the PACKERS. And I dunno nothin' bout those Packers. All I know is that Brett Favre (whose name is not pronounced like it is spelled) left the Packers.
I know there was a lot of whining and gnashing of teeth when that happened.
I know that when the Packers lose the Emergency Room is
extra busy. I know that they should have
a sign at the city limits that says.
You don't like football?
Please catch the next plane out of town.
You are not welcome here.
And that's about all I know about football.
7. I have found a whole new world here in Blogland. I can finally amuse someone
besides myself...and MyHero...who only thinks I
am funny on occassion. However, he dutifully laughs
because he likes clean undershorts and pressed shirts. Amen.
Now..here you go..
The next poor suckers to get this award are...
(as they say in the Acadamy Awards...in NO particular order)
1. MySummerhouse. Laura is just a sweetheart of a girl. She is a beautiful person
who knows the depth of life and loss and her blog is lovely...and so is she.
2. Bella'sRoseCottage Hosted by the Beautiful Bella (who else). Her blog is
as pretty as she is. You will find tea and treasures (including her).
3. SoManyThingsToLove Gabriele Augustini (doncha love that name)..it sounds
like she'a an exotic princess (or exotic dancer?-just sayin...) but NO she
is a painter of silk-the likes of which you have never seen.
But don't be calling her Gabby cuz she does NOT like that.
And don't let her painted potato head scare you away..scroll down to
the silk scarf-oh yeah....baby!
4. ACottageMuse Sandi (whose name should be Sandirella or something
swirly and ruffly like that) has a dreaming-of-white blog. You will love her
thrift shop finds.
You know the worst part of this whole thing is deciding who gets
There are SOOO many people out there that deserve an award..
it's like how do I begin to pick?
So...I picked those that have been commenting..
There were those that I would have liked to give it to that
have a NO AWARDS sticker...
Yeah...they probably got stuck doing this about a
gazillion times and now they are ashamed of
spilling the beans about themselves...
or...some of them could be wanted by
the IRS and don't want to make themselves
And there are those that have so many followers that
I figured they have done this more than they ever
hoped they would have to...so I hesitated to ask them...
Just know that if you have found me here
I love having you here and will
do my best to include you
in any way I can..
so...if I didn't give you
and you thinkyou deserve one..
please send me cash...
I might get another chance to do this.
And, Laurie...Thank You-love you girl!
(You owe me BIG time) Diana
