About this award:

A fantastic reminder to be positive and get behind all of the artistry and bravery of those sharing their stories and thoughts.

 

Seven Facts About Me:

  1. I get very shy and embarrassed with delight when someone does something nice for me. I often have to step back and gather myself quietly (internally squealing with excitement) when something good happens.
  2. My hair is naturally curly . It’s very tightly spiraled, so I work with a curly hair expert to keep it manageable. I am afraid to let anyone else touch my hair now.
  3. There is a whole group of friends I have who all went through school together. We started in kindergarten together, and graduated high school together. One of my best friends joined in fourth grade, as they went to the other primary school, but we still remain in contact through Facebook. I moved away, others moved away, but we still talk!
  4. I self-diagnosed my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome in 1995 via the show Mystery Diagnosis. It was 20 years before doctors would confirm it.
  5. I hate the sound, smell, thought, and even words peanut butter. It grosses me out. I have no idea why.
  6. I love playing word games like cryptoquotes, word puzzles, and puns.
  7. Even though my sister is 14 years, 10 days and 17 minutes younger than I am, we are often asked if we are twins. Poor thing. 😐 I’m certain this is due to me being shut up in a bedroom for the past 15 years, not seeing the sun, than any of her shortcomings, but I still enjoy it.

 

My Nominees

I hate to do this, but I am out of spoons, and will need to submit this later today or tomorrow morning. I’m sorry, my friends, I’m just out of steam, and have agreed to an interview. I’ll tell you later.

Have a lovely day, my Zebras! 😘

One Lovely Blog Award

wp-1487621709466.jpgIt’s a long weekend here in Canada, and I spent all day yesterday puttering around. I didn’t make time to blog. I still wasnt feeling great from the bug, but I’m recovering amazingly well, compared to how I’ve fared in the past. So it was a lovely surprise to find this notice in my email this morning!

I had been nominated by fellow migraine sufferer and football fan MyGraine  (Thank you so very much! 😘)

Seven Facts About Me:

  1. I am a huge Monty Python fan. My girlfriends and I used to get together for sleepovers in middle school and watch Monty Python videos we had recorded on Beta max. My son sings “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” constantly.  My favourite character is Caebaernog.
  2. I married my first husband in Las Vegas, on the same day as Bruce Willis and Demi Moore got married. My ex husband later introduced me to my current (and last!) husband, who is the absolute love of my life, so I know he, at the very least, turned out to be good for something.
  3. I love the Toronto Raptors, they played their first professional game on my 26th birthday.
  4. I sleep with an adorable pink rabbit that used to belong to my husband.
  5. Both my children and my husband have a form of autism.
  6. Animated TV shows for adults are my favourites. Bob’s Burgers, Archer, and The Simpsons are what I usually watch.
  7. My ex husband used to call me hamster girl, because I love organizing and reorganizing things, and I can usually be heard rustling through papers. Trouble is, these days I get halfway through and I’m tired out.
