The Versatile Blogger Award

One of my regular reads is Struggling Happiness and this morning, I got a surprise from the author herself, Sara. Look what she sent me! I love Sara’s blog and I find her absolutely inspiring (oh, and PS: she works in the ER which is my secret fantasy job…I’m sure Sara is laughing her butt off at me for that but whatever). The point is, Sara is awesome and you should go read her blog. The end.

Here are the rules of accepting this prestigious award:

Thank the person. THANK YOU, SARA!!!

Share 7 things about yourself.

1. I love Green Day. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing…If “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” comes on the radio, I turn into an hysterical teenage girl again. I’ve seen them live. Twice. Next time I have vowed to actually make it on stage. To this end, I have memorized “Longview” and “Basket Case'” in case I am called upon to sing because the girls that go up there always SAY they know the lyrics but then NEVER know the lyrics and just end up screaming and jumping up and down and flashing Billie Joe and well…it’s embarrassing to watch.
I will, instead, be like this girl.

2. Kyle has tried to teach me to skateboard. It began with me stepping onto his board and ended about 8 seconds later when I fell off and received the nastiest, purplest looking bruise of all time. You win again, Tony Hawk.

3. I have entire conversations with my dog. And the way she cocks her head and gives you this knowing look…well, you’d have entire conversations with her, too.

4. On stage I have played a crazy mother, a nervous housewife, an autistic poet, an anarchist, an old woman, an unborn child, the wife of a Nazi, a kidnapper, the kidnapped, a school girl, an actress, a warrior, a peasant, a woman on the brink of suicide, and a man.

5. I can’t whistle. Gajillions have tried to teach me. To no avail. I remain whistleless.

6. In high school, I wore combat boots. All the time.

7. My favorite movie is Who Framed Roger Rabbit? I realize that film just oozes sophistication so I’ll say this, don’t be intimidated by the somewhat meta-cinematic interaction of live action actors and animated characters.

“Roger, darling. I want you to know I love you. I've loved you more than any woman's ever loved a rabbit.” – Jessica R.

So there’s seven things…and then…

Pass this award on to 5 other recently discovered blogs.

Seriously, if you haven’t visited these women…you need to!

Thanks! You're so sweet!
Your dog's facial expression in that picture made me laugh out loud. and don't worry cause I'm pretty sure I talk to my pets more than I talk to other humans, lol.
I've never been able to whistle either :(
and those are some interesting roles you've played. I'd like to know how the unborn child role was played out?! haha

Kate said...

Yes you did wear combat boots... it was awesome. Why did you stop?

When did you play a man???? And more importantly how did I miss that? I think I heard about the unborn child but I missed that show too. Very, very sad for me.

Lets be honest, Madigan just needs her own blog. i think she's outgrowing her guest posting for you.

And I have you to thank for introducing me to Green Day. My life has been forever changed.

Alana said...

Aww loving those 7 things about yourself. I love bloghopping and getting to learn something new about the writer. I talk to my dog all the time but he just stares at me like I'm crazy, lmfao

Ashley @ A Recipe for Sanity said...

Love this! :) And I especially love the one about Green Day. So cool! Congrats on your award!

Sara said...

So fun!! Thanks for thinking of me :-) I love that your a theatre girl! I have done several shows and always feel my "whole-ist" on stage. I love the pic of your puppy- my favorite thing about dogs is when they crook their heads. I'm so glad I found you!

Karen in Progress said...
