Feeling the Love

Premios Dardo Award

"This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day."

Liz at Eternal Lizdom has awarded me the Premios Dardos blog award, in addition to saying some very nice things about me :) I'm honored and grateful; thank you, Liz.
And in the spirit of passing along the love, here's how it works:

Step 1: respond and rework -- answer the questions on your own blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.

Step 2: tag - eight other bloggers

1) What are you wearing right now?
Black vinyl bustier studded with spikes, white lace thong, black fishnets, stiletto heels. Har har. Obviously kidding. Brown cargo pants, salmon-colored sweater.
2) What is your biggest fear?
Losing someone I love. Which I have actually experienced and it is absolutely crushing. And which I have come close to experiencing just lately, or at least have experienced the very real fear and possibility of experiencing it.

3) Do you nap a lot?

4) Who is the last person you hugged?
5) What websites to you visit when you go online?
Many blogs. A Down syndrome message board. Facebook.

6) What was the last item you bought?
A strawberry-banana smoothie at Surf City Squeeze, which I shared with Lilah.

7) If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
That is a hard one to answer. Michael and I spent our honeymoon on Maui and Kauai almost 8 years ago, and it was pure paradise. I've wanted to go back ever since. However, there are also a lot of other places in the world I've never seen. If I had to choose one place to go, I guess I would choose Europe (which is actually a lot of places!).

8) If you woke up tomorrow and were a the opposite sex, what is the first thing you would do?
Punch myself for being such an ass? No, just kidding ;) Ummm, I don't know . . . probably something like what Liz said - play with the willy. Isn't that what all guys do?

9) Has a celebrity's hair cut ever influenced your own hairstyle?
Yes, I actually did get my hair cut to resemble Rachel's at the height of Friends. Also, I had a Dorothy Hammill haircut when I was 10ish, but that wasn't my choice. And I hated it.

10) What is your most embarrassing moment?
So many to choose from. The one that comes to mind is the time I came out of the ladies room when I was working for a law firm, walked all the way through the office back to my desk and then realized that the back of my dress was stuck up in my pantyhose. And I did not wear panties under pantyhose.

11) What was the last movie you watched?
I think it was The Kite Runner. It's been a while.

12) What is the last book you read?
I am finishing up The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, hopefully today (as my book club meets to discuss it tomorrow night). Before this, I read Jewell by Bret Lott.

13) If you had a whole day to yourself with no work, commitments, or interruptions what would you do?
Sleep in. Go out and eat a nice, leisurely breakfast while reading a good book. Get a massage. Get a pedicure and my nails done (heck, just make it a spa day and throw in a facial too). Maybe do a little shopping. I actually had a day like this a couple years ago. It's all I asked for for my birthday that year (I remember I was hugely pregnant with Lilah), and Michael granted my wish, and it was heavenly.

14) Is there a major goal you have that you haven't yet achieved?
I'd like to have something I've written published.

15) Drinks are on the house!! What do you order?
Some kind of martini. You know, the fancy ones that aren't really martinis at all but are called martinis because they're served in a martini glass. I like an Appletini, a Lemon Drop, or a Watermelon.

And now, passing the love on . . .

Let me say that it is really difficult to pick and choose, because there are so many blogs that I enjoy and they're all worthy in my opinion. Without further ado -

Melissa of Mommy Madness
Kristin of The Way It Is
Lovin Mama of Livin for the Love
Loren of Malakai Stow
Jennifer of Three's a Charm

Okay, Blogger just ate my comment. As I was saying, I will try to do this soon, but typically I am slack and never get around to these things in a timely fashion. Also, you had great answers and how can I compete with that? But I will give it my best effort...thanks for including me!

So sweet Lisa! I too will try and follow through on my part. LOVED your responses!
We are all very sick over here so we're just trying to mend!!!
