Thank you, thank you to Tammy at Lattes and Lollypops formerly known as Family Doins and Barbara at Stray Thoughts. These lovely bloggers have given me the Billante Weblog Award. You guys totally made my day!

I'd like to pass it along to two bloggers who I think are brilliant writers. First, Beck at Frog and Toad are Friends. She has such an intelligent and poetic way of writing she never fails to grip my heart no matter her topic. Next, to Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee. Linda also is a wonderful writer. Her humor and honesty will have you laughing right out loud, giggling under your breath, and smirking at your computer so that your husband keeps asking you why you're always doing that while on the computer.

And onto a meme I was tagged to do by the very same Barbara. I think I've done something like this before but it'll take me longer to find it and link than to just do it again. So on we go.

1) Link to the person who tagged me.2) Mention the rules.3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.4) Tag 6 other bloggers by linking to them.5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged.

~I cannot stand it when someone cleans their fingernail with the fingernail of their other hand. The sound almost sends me through the ceiling.

~Although nervous when I first go to the dentist, I can almost fall asleep while he's doing my fillings.

~My daughter says I laugh at my own jokes. Very loudly. So she says.

~I'm not a cake fan. Cheesecake yes. Regular cake? Not so much.

~I always turn my pillow over first thing when I get into bed. Usually from top to bottom.

~I hate walking on concrete with bare feet

Quirky, I am. And I'm quirky because I'm going to cheat and say you're all tagged because I want to know all about your quirkiness. Let me know in the comments if you're doing it.

Yeah, I do that pillow thing too! Especially when it's hot, I have to turn it over before I go to sleep...wonder where we came up with that!

Laura said...

Quirky is why we love you!!

Wow, I don't think I could ever fall asleep at the dentist unless medicated to do so! I do love cake, but thankfully we don't often have it in the house -- I'm terrible about slicing off "just a sliver" -- multiple times a day. I turn my pillow over, too, but it's because it gets all squished on one side, so I have to turn it over to get any benefit from it. Then it gets squished on that side, so I have to do the same thing the next night.

Congrats on the award! You are definitely deserving.

It was fun reading about your quirks...that pillow thing is for sure quirky. But, I laugh at my own jokes too.

Tammy said...

You are so deserving, Susanne! :D

And uh-oh... I think I've done that fingernail thing from time to time. If we're blessed enough to MIRL, I promise to try not to, Susanne...and I'll let you laugh at your own jokes!

Oh you sweetie girl. Thank you.

Beck said...

Oh Susanne! You have no idea what your words mean to me - thank you so much.

And I can't believe that you don't like cake! But don't worry - I'll eat your share.

Funny thing -- I laugh at my own jokes AND I always turn my pillow over first thing when I get into bed too!!! We have a lot of quirky things in common!
