Very Inspiring Blogger Award (AKA Another One Where I Talk About Myself)

My shiny new writer-friend Lauren Spieller recently nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award (aw, thanks!), which means you get to hear yet more blather from me. (Cue applause.) Seven things about me, to be exact.

Um . . .

  1. I love Miche bags. Too bad they cost money.
  2. My husband speaks fluent French (and no, that isn't meant to be taken raunch-ily).
  3. I've never been on an airplane. (Have I said this one before?)
  4. At one point in my life I played the piano, flute, French horn, and elk horn. I've since replaced the horn with a ukulele. Still can't sing.
  5. I'm MORMON. (No, I don't have sister wives. Yes, I don't drink coffee, but I don't think I would like it anyway.)
  6. My work had to buy me a footstool because my legs are too short to reach the floor. (I'm really not that short, though.)
  7. I cannot, for the life of me, walk in a pair of high heels. (I have some two-inchers I can wear if I think really hard about it, though.)

All right hooligans. I'm supposed to pass this on. Come and get it.

Here are the rules:

1. Display this award logo on your blog. PROUDLY.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you. (Charlie's note: No one actually follows those links. We all know this is a sad attempt to draw followers. ADMIT IT, PEOPLE!)

3. State 7 things about yourself.

4. Nominate up to 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.


  1. Wow, I'm pretty surprised you've never flown in an airplane. Don't worry, my first airplane ride was fresh out of high school, not too long ago, if i may add lol i cannot walk on heels either, i have flat feet. This was fun to read Charles haha

  2. Thanks for thinking of me!

    That's a lot of instruments. I took piano lesson's growing up. Still don't play well enough to play in church. I've been trying to teach myself how to play the chanter (for bagpipes) but learning music is really hard. It would be much easier to put in sprinklers or lay cement.

  3. What--me?
    On, no. I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy. LOL

    Loved learning more about you...shorty. :)

  4. Heels hurt my soul. I'll take flat shoes and being shorter than everyone on any day!

  5. With hаvin ѕo much content аnd artіcles do you ever run into any issueѕ of plagorism οr copyright violation?
    My webѕitе haѕ a lοt of unіque
    content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.
