Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch on

This is originally what I wrote about Nhya giving me an award...

First and foremost, I'd sincerely like to thank Nhya for giving me an award. I got super excited when she told me and I really wanted to call my parents and tell them because I never win anything. I quickly stopped myself from doing that; my mom doesn't know about the blog and it's better that way. Maybe years from now, I'll let her read it. My dad knows, he just chooses not to read it. That's okay because if he did read it, that could lead to some potentially awkward conversations. I love awkward, just not with my dad. Anyway, you can read what she said here. Honestly, words can't describe how awesome it is that she gave me an award. I completely agree with what she said, we're totally on the same East Coast wavelength. Be jealous!

I have never gotten one before so I wasn't quite sure what to do or if I even needed to do anything. After doing some research, I realized that I needed to post 7 random things about myself...
1) I would much rather sit at home and read on a Friday night than go to a bar and get crazy
2) I have enough cleaning products (Lysol, Clorox wipes...) to last me for another 10 years. I'm a huge clean freak
3) If I could live anywhere in the world, I would definitely live in the Caribbean 
4) I still like catching lightening bugs 
5) I miss the days when I could run around naked and not get charged with indecent exposure/get put on the sex offender list
6) Marvin Gaye always puts me in a better mood
7) I love eavesdropping on people's conversations because I hear the funniest shit

I'm giving this award to these people because they're amazing:
Miss Sassy Pants
Blonde Girl Lava Dog World
Lesbian in Cincinnati
White Heart Bleeding
Blerg Blog

Thanks for reading my blog guys, it makes me very happy.
