The lovely Carol Burnside presented me with this award on Monday because– well, maybe because I was somebody she knew with a blog who hadn’t received it yet. I’m not sure what it’s an award for. Oh, I know!
It’s for Being a Great Person! (If I present it to you, you can make up your own reason for receiving the award–or you can use mine.)
The conditions that come with this award are that I must tell you seven things about myself that you may not know, and I must send it on to seven more people.
So, without further ado, here are my seven things.
1. I am an oldest child, and despite my disorganized nature, have a tendency to want to organize others.
2. I have two-toned eyes. Really. Yellow in the middle, and blue around the edges.
3. I am BONE lazy. Alas. My ideal day would be sitting around, reading books all blessed day long.
4. I wrote my thesis for my master’s degree in history on Baptist missions in China from 1911 to 1945. Really.
5. I sing alto. I really prefer singing the harmony, and not just because I can’t hit those high notes.
6. I once had the Hallelujah Chorus memorized. (Alas, no longer.)
7. I played the flute (not very well) in marching band from junior high through college. (I mimed the piccolo part on Stars & Stripes Forever.)
Now, who shall I present with this lovely award??? I am presenting it to you because you are ALL Great People!!
1. C.E. Murphy (of Urban Shaman fame) at the essential kit.
2. April at In The Face of Dragons (like she needs more to do)
3. Kristen Ethridge, my Baylor Buddy
4. Robin D. Owens the Rita Award winner and Book Cover award winner (Congratulations!!)
5. Nalini Singh, of the new Guild Hunter books and the wonderful Psy-Shifter stories. (I love to say “I knew ya when.”)
6. The fascinating Arwen Lynch at her blog Tarot by Arwen
7. Anne Marie Novark who is hugely supportive to writers at Just Write!
(Feel free to ignore me, but it’s a nice picture to put on your blog.) (And hey! It’s an Award! For whatever you feel you need an award for!) (Also, if you can’t think of anything to blog about–which is not a problem for some of you, but sometimes is for me–this gives you something to blog about. Bonus!)
So. There it is. My award. And my awardees.
