Kreativ Blogger Award!

Recently I was given a few blog awards.  The first was from the lovely Andree of Straight Up Glam.  Andree, a fellow Canadian beauty blogger, awarded me the Kreativ blogger Award, thank you Andree!

It might be hard to name 10 things you don't know because I do tend to rattle on, but let's see.....

1.  I don't know what my natural hair color is anymore.  I got grey hair as early as 18, so I've been dying my hair for as long as I can remember.  I wouldn't even want to know what my hair would look like now, if left to it's own devices.

2.  I talk to myself a lot.  I started noticing that I do this recently, it's like I do a running commentary for myself.  Very odd but strangely soothing.  I even ask myself questions like should I put this here do you think?  Then I'll answer myself.

 3. I hate being too hot, and my idea of a bad time is sweating while trying to go to sleep.  Hence not a fan of hot summer nights.

4.  I'd almost rather do any chore other than grocery shopping.  

5.  I love looking at real estate.  I can spend hours on MLS looking at all the listings, whether I'm in the market or not.

6.  I haven't read a book in about 2 months.  This is so unlike me, normally I'm a big reader.  I did just start The Help this past week, which I know everyone but me has read already.

7.  I can't stand people getting in my personal space.  Last week at work this guy wheeled the chair from the front of my desk to the side, and was almost sitting right beside me...just to chat.  What the ?  

8.  I once read that the dirtiest thing in a hotel room is the tv remote and now I carry a ziplock bag with me that we throw it in, so we can use it germ free.  Some of you are probably rolling your eyes about now...others will think I'm a genius.

9.  If I can't fall asleep in order to relax, I usually try and think about how I'd like to re-arrange my furniture.  Works everytime. 

10.  I fear this list has made me appear a bit insane.  

The idea is to then award 5 other blogs, but I am terrible at doing that so I award everyone who reads this post, and comments on it, with the Kreativ Blogger award.   Now tell us 1o things we might not know about you!


  1. "I can't stand people getting in my personal space."

    Totally agree! & the remote thing is genius :)

  2. OMG we are twins. I think we were separated at birth. I've been dying my hair since 16-started greying at 18 too! I hate the heat too-I have central air. GENIUS about the remote control!

    CONGRATS on the award!

  3. Yay! Congrats hun :D Interesting facts lol Thanks for sharing with us!

  4. I love your "rattling"! News to me about the remotes. Ew.

    I take the opportunity to tag you with another award. Feel free to disregard if you like - I noticed there are a lot of awards being tagged all over the place. But I had to mention you of course!


  5. Ziploc baggies over remotes in a hotel room = genius. Thanks for the idea. I'll be doing that now too.

  6. Congrats on the awards! The Help is one of my favorite books and I can't wait for the movie to come out. And I hate grocery shopping, too!

  7. You are too funny!I'm with you on #2, #3, #4 and #7!! And #6 is funny because my friend gave me her copy months ago and i'm still staring at it. And now they are making a movie of it! HAHA! Love this!

  8. Oh I loved this post. Made me giggle!

    #2 - Since you are talking to yourself, I'm glad you answer yourself.. :)

    #4 - Interesting. I'm not fond of it either, but my hubby loves grocery shopping. He even knows what good prices are for food.

    #5 - Ditto - I like looking at different houses and how people decorate them (or not).

    #6 - Good Book

    #8 - I had to read this one twice. Really a baggie? Don't think about germs, you will go crazy!

    #9 - Hmm, might have to try this! I usually count backwards.

    Great post, fun stuff

  9. Well once again I'm relieved that the response are more 'me too' over 'what the hell'....thanks everyone! If anyone does this tag pls let me know :)

  10. I don't think you're insane at all. Despite not having two nickels to rub together I, too, find myself engrossed in MLS listings for hours on end. Recently a friend of mine told me she and her husband were moving to Detroit. She told me two areas they were thinking of and I looked up listings for two hours. I think she thinks I'm insane.

    I'm mortified to admit I haven't read a book in over a year. A YEAR. And I love to read. wth am i doing with my life??

    And hells bells that is an excellent idea with the baggies on the remotes. I'm going to use it on the office phone when I'm forced to go into an office. Who knows who's been on those things?? shudder.

    And Tracy--thanks so much for your kind comment. I have to tell you it came at a very good time. I've been having a rough go of it lately and was just sounding off to someone (myself and the cats) the other day about if anyone even reads and why am I doing it. I do love to write so I"m glad you enjoy. Leave a note any time :)

    ps-you are witty

  11. this this great I got to know you so much more love the remote control thing !! great tip I think your genius

  12. How are you coming with the book?? :-) Thanks for your comments on our blog. We really do appreciate that you take the time to stop by!

  13. Tracy, nice job on the award, you go girl! I'm with you on the grocery thing, well, any shopping for that matter. Sometimes I have to check if I'm a girl at all. The book is excellent - one of the best ones I read last year. If you want more book ideas let me know, got a whole list. The whole germ thing, I kinda like them, but you make me laugh (in a good way)and you are a genius!
