sweetest thing

This is the sweetest thing! Casey from Sing Before Seven gave me an award for my blog. The rules of the award state that I will write seven interesting things about myself and nominate 7 other bloggers for this adorable little award. Sharing the love, I'm all about that.
1)My house is a cacophony of color and it puts an easter egg to shame. Occasionally someone will slip a note into our mailbox telling us how driving past brightens their day.
2)My first boyfriend and I were talking on the phone one night and he said "I think you'll really like this song." And he held his phone up to the radio and played "Just Like Heaven" by The Cure. My 14 year old heart heart found its favorite song of all time.
3)In college I did a radio on Sunday nights called the Indie 500. We played the best new music we could find, with the occasional Spice Girls song thrown in for nostalgia. Mostly we ate Chinese food and talked about anything and everything while I played Cooking Mama 2.
4)I read one book deemed "intelligent" followed by one supposedly "unintelligent." For example, I read Ayn Rand followed by Harry Potter. Right now I'm reading everything by Jane Austen (again).
5)I have a tattoo of a quill pen on my back as kind of a talisman against a lack of creativity. I know someone on the Internetzz has a similar one. I got yelled at once about in an online community which made me really self conscious for awhile. Coincidences happen though.
6)My comfort food is lentil soup.
1 pkg carrots, 1 pkg celery, 1 onion, 1 pkg hot dogs, 1 bag dry lentils, 7 cups water, 4 or 5 veggie broth cubes. Chop vegetables (include celery leaves) and add to water. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for one hour. Eat.
7)A little after the new year I'm opening a vintage shop online. I'll keep you posted!

And I will pass it along to (I'm only doing 4 because I need to go do my Christmas shopping!):
