Wow!!! Thank You Gina!!

Gina Gao over at Modern World presented me with an award!!!!  Thank you so much Gina! It's greatly appreciated!  I also wanted to do a shout out and say thanks to PurpleMist over at Insomnia Strikes for being my 100th follower! 

I'm really having a hard time coming up with factoids about myself that don't make me seem like I'm not playing with a full deck, or which haven't already been shared.  

1.  I'm obsessed with rainbows.  When I am asked what my fave colour is, my answer is usually, 'all of them'. 

2. I have to separate my m&ms into different colours then eat the colours down so that I have an even amount of each colour, and sometimes I make patterns with them, especially rainbows.

3.  In my past life I was Canadian.

4.  I was so involved with the American Indian Movement in the early 1990s that my boss once said he'd love to see my FBI dossier.  I'm not even an American Indian.

5.  I wasn't allowed to have any pets when I was growing up.

6. If a movie contains an actor/actress I don't like or is a subject matter of which I could care less, I won't watch it. 

7. When I was little, my mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I promptly answered, "An artist."  Without missing a beat, she said, "You'll starve."  

Now to nominate my 15 bloggers to receive this award!  

All About the Buttons

Have a cupcake and pass on the love!!


  1. OMG! Rainbow cupcakes!

    Thanks for the award, m'darling.

    As for sorting sweeties, I kind of do something similar. And I have to hang my washing out with clothes pegs which eithe rematch or contrast pleasingly with the items.

    OCD much?

  2. That is either match or... Bless autocorrect.

  3. Thank you JoJo so much, I've never been given an award before so this is my first and I'm so excited :) Thank you...hugs!

  4. Awwww, thank you, JoJo...I really appreciate that! Your separating the candy reminded me of an episode of 'Everyone Loves Raymond' in which Robert talked about separating out his Good & Plenties...very funny!

    That's very kind of you Jojo (the award AND the cupcakes)

    I don't recall seeing anything about you that singles you out as a sandwich short of a picnic. Personally speaking I never have and never will be able to stand Toms Cruise and Hanks. I know this is seen as a personal failing in some eyes, but there you have it. People are strange ;0)

  6. Congrats on the well deserved award.


  7. Hey, congrats on the award! LOL on separating M&Ms. :-) And I'm totally with you on number 6, for realz.

    So thanks JoJo!!!
