Awards Again!

Amy from The Bargain Hunter Extraordinaire passed on this lovely award to me:

The rules are simple:
1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award.
2. Copy the award & place it on my blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated me for this award.
4. Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
5. Nominate 7 bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs I nominate.
Ready! Let's Go:

Thank you Amy for this fabulous award!

If any of you are a recessionista like me, you should definitely check out Amy's blog. She finds the cutest and most amazing bargains!

Seven interesting things about me (oh my gosh I have done so many of these):

1. I hate black licorice.
2. I dread holidays more than enjoy them. Something always goes wrong.
3. I miss cheesy half-hour comedy shows like Growing Pains and Full House.
4. Reality television is my frenemy.
5. I own and frequently listen to Les Baxter's greatest hits CD.
6. I grit my teeth all day and all night. So twice a year I get them polished. I'm worried I am going to turn them into dust before I'm 50.
7. I own a brown/orange canary who irritates me as much as I irritate him.

Can you tell I'm not in the best mood right now? Oh, dear. It's been a long day.

Anyway, I am passing this award on to the following seven blogs. They are lovely and quite deserve it. :)

1. OceanDreams
2. The Panty Drawer
