Blog on Fire!

I wasn't going to post today.  I'm pretty sure I've posted every day for the past few weeks so I was thinking I could stand to take a day off.

But a certain someone had other ideas.

My new bloggy friend, The Sarcasm Goddess, at For the Love of Writing is, as she would say, all kinds of "AWESOMESAUCE"!  And she does say that.  All the time.  About herself.

But she's not the only one who thinks she's awesomesauce.  She had not one, but TWO bloggy awards bestowed upon her last week.  And the neat thing is she now gets to pass them on.

What does this have to do with me?

Ms. Sarcasm passed a "Blog on Fire" award to me!

Thank you.  Thank you very much. (Read with Elvis in mind.)

She said: "Just Jennifer because her name should be Just Plain Awesome."

I asked her if she knew she could be nice sometimes.  She said she tries not to make a habit of it.

Here's the award:

Yep, that's it.  Just a picture to add to this post.

Whatever.  Did you get an award?

Now I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself with you, and then I get to pass the award on to 10 other bloggers.

There's just all kinds of sharing going on here!

Not real sure what to tell you that I haven't already written about, but I'll give it a shot....

1.  Stats: I'm 37, an Aries, married 13 years, have a daughter age 11 and a son age 5 1/2.

2.  Places I've lived: Everett, WA; South Lake tahoe, CA; Albany, El Cerrito, Hayward & Castro Valley in the SF Bay Area, CA and Marysville, WA.

3.  I haven't done much traveling.  Have only traveled around Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada and Florida.  Been to British Columbia on a couple day trips.  That's it!

4.  I got my first tattoo for my 36th birthday.  I want another one.

5.  I color my hair.  Have since I was a teenager.  Still do it now because I have greys.  Oprah thinks hair color is the single greatest beauty invention.

6.  I believe in Santa Claus.

7.  I have been watching All My Children since I was a kid when my mom would come home on her lunch break and watch it.  It was off and on back then, but I've been a loyal fan my entire adult life.  I still record it every day to make sure I don't miss anything.  Very sad that it's coming to an end.  Don't judge!

I don't think I should pick any of the same bloggers Ms. Sarcasm did....here goes....

1.  No Longer Quiet because he's a guy who blogs and it's not just stupid guy stuff.

2.  MomJovi  because she calls herself "MomJovi" of course!

3.  Things I Can't Say because I covet the title of her blog and because she is nice and hosts fun link-ups that have opened me up to the blogospshere.

4 & 5.  Four Plus an Angel and a belle, a bean and a chicago dog because they are hosting a Summer Blog Social for bloggers who aren't attending any of the blog conferences this summer.  Really cool idea!

6.  Holly's House because it was through commenting on her blog that I got FREE WINE!

7.  Mommy Needs a Vacation because she likes wine and cocktails and owns it!

8.  The Kir Corner because she knows when to put herself in the corner.

9.  Lola is 40 because she is older than me and draws cartoons.

10.  Practical Parenting because this is one STRONG mom and woman.

Well that was fun.  Sharing is fun.  Mostly I really appreciate that someone as awesome as The Sarcasm Goddess thinks I'm awesome too.
