Kreativ Blogger Award

I would like to thank the hungry irishman for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!  He has wonderful recipes and great taste in wine. I have a secret wish to have him over for dinner and a bottle. Make sure to go check out his page!

Rules of Conduct: Bloggers who win the award must complete the following steps:

1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award and provide a link.
2. List 7 interesting things about yourself that your readers might find interesting
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers, provide links, and let them know!

  1. I’ve only been nominated for one other thing: On a racing boat I crewed on we got caught up on someone’s mooring buoy in the middle of the race. I was nominated to be hung over the side by my ankles with a buck knife in my teeth and be dunked head first under water to cut us loose. I also retrieved a hat someone had lost while I was down there.
  2. I once turned down a second date with a guy to go to a house party. Later I found out through a mutual friend that it was out at the Evergreen State College – some band called Nirvana was playing.
  3. I punched a girl in the face on stage. It was an accident of course. Knocked her clean over, gave her a black eye and she took out a few other dancers on her way down. We were both in the Corp de Ballet. Swans. Who choreographed that anyway?
  4. I cannot remember a time in my life when I didn’t want to be a writer. I spent all my time in math classes writing little stories and poems. It shows. I’m terrible at math.
  5. I have a smashed penny collection. The two best I have received from people are one from my best friends husband when he took a motorcycle trip and one from the Salvador Dali Museum in Paris. I went on a few dates with a guy who took a trip to Russia. I asked him for a smashed ruble from Red Square and he brought me back a smashed penny from Time Square. I broke things off.
  6. I have two or three poems from Heinrich Heine and Maria Rainier Rilke memorized in German, along with the first paragraph of Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
  7. I used to work for a large animal Veterinarian one summer. I have sutured many animals, been locked in a padded room with a crazed drugged horse and a beer, played mid-wife to a cow, pulled teeth from J.Z. Knight’s horses, watched some poor 4-H boy pass out stone-cold while his group was observing us emasculate a horse, had a run-in with a cougar, and got to treat an elephant for a cold.


7theaven – I love the charm and simplicity of this blog. Sometimes getting that email in my in-box just makes the rest of my day.

Chicquero –  I am a bit of an eye-candy junky and this blog gives me a good fix. The photographs are amazingly modern and entrancing.

Gallery32 Photography   Another great eye-candy spot that is about 180 degrees from Chicquero. Lush would be the word I would use. – I hope that my son will grow up to be as sweet and talented as this boy. Who doesn’t love a man who cooks? – I love irony. I love a well told story. I love David. He has a effortlessly polished style with a way of infusing modern-techno angst into each piece. – I love her recipes because they are simple, perfect busy-day recipes. It’s complicated, but make sure you check out the bento box post. Last, but not least, my hometown girls. Visit for their incredible pictures and stay for their fab recipes.
