Such a Sugar Doll

 Two wonderful bloggers gave me the Sugar Doll Award:

L. Diane Wolfe of Circle of Friends
Amy Sonnichsen of The Green Bathtub

Thank you so much. Both of you are sugar dolls.

The rules are to pass on the award and tell ten things about myself. I’ll start with passing it on. Since two people gave me the award, I’m passing it on to two other sugar dolls:

Mason Canyon of Thoughts in Progress
Jane Kennedy Sutton of Jane’s Ride

Now, ten things about me:
1. I hate to debate. I may have said this before, but I’ll reiterate… I do not like to argue.

2. I wrote a play for the VOE club in high school then starred in it. I was the rabbit hopping around on stage who was late for a very important interview.

3. In high school, I decorated my car with multi-colored polka dots, big giant eyelashes and lips, and drove it around town. For the life of me, I can’t remember why I did it. But I did.

4. I wrote Romance novelettes in high school. As I wrote each page, a friend would take it and pass it on to others. The endings were always tragic. I have no idea where the pages went after I wrote them. Hmm, there’s a theme developing here. I, apparently, was a weird kid in high school.

5. I sang in the church choir (uh-oh, this was during my high school years), but now could not carry a note if you gave me a basket.

6. In college, I was an assistant to one of my English professors and graded papers for him. Probably the beginning of my editing career.

7. I finished my Master’s, including the thesis, in one year.

8. In my closet, I still have the suede lace-up boots I wore with hot pants in college. Why I still have them, I don’t know since my feet have gotten bigger and no longer fit in the boots.

9. I used to do ceramics, even had my own kiln. Until it short circuited and almost burned the house down. Luckily, it was contained to the garage. I don’t do ceramics anymore.

10. I can’t knit. I tried. Maybe it was because it was during the time when I had a high-stress job, but all my stitches were so tight, I couldn’t get the needles through, no matter what size needles I used or how I tried to shove them through.
Mason and Jane, you can pass this on if you want. It’s up to you. I gave it to you ‘cause you’re definitely Sugar Dolls.

  1. Congratulations on the award... and that care sounds FABULOUS. I think I need to do that to mine!

  2. Yes, congratulations! Well deserved.

    Loved learning more about you. You cracked me up in so many places!

  3. Thanks for the personal insights, Helen! I think we'd have been friends in high school...I was kind of odd, too. :)

    And I'll also do anything to avoid a confrontation or argument. Run away, run away!

  4. You may have been "different" in high school, but it sounds like you rocked in college - a master's in one year! Congratulations on your award.

  5. Congratulations.

    And although I find it highly disturbing, you really need to find a photo of your polka-dotted car and post it.

  6. I like this award. You learn so much. I especially liked the bit about your car.

  7. Congratulations on the award and thanks for thinking of me when passing it on. I appreciate it.

    Now I'm with everyone else. We need to see a photo of that car. As for the Romance novelettes you wrote, someone probably keep all of them and will make a fortune with them someday.

  8. Cute Award, Congrats :)

  9. Congrats on the award :)

    I love the car story!! My mom once tried to cover the rust stains on the car with dots, but my dad had a fit!!

  10. I doubt anyone could make money off my high school stories. I seemed to always end them with the couple driving off a cliff or getting killed. I was probably ahead of my time with those romantic tragedies.

    Sorry for being a bit absent yesterday and today. My DH and I went to meet with some of his fraternity brothers from college and the wives. Had a fun time reminiscing and laughing (& a bit of drinking - one bro is now a liquor wholesaler rep :-) His room became the gathering room.

  11. High school is filled with fond memories and also many things we'd like to forget for all of us.
    I had the same problem with knitting so I switched to crochet. I love it but who has the time?

  12. Congratulations on the award! Thanks so much for passing it along to me. If I'm not careful, I could let all this recognition go to my head!)

  13. What great attributes you have!!! I painted my car, a Barracuda, orange with blue stripes in high school. I did have a little problem selling it, though!!!

  14. I would have totally hung out with you in high school!

  15. congratulations on the award!

    I'm non-confrontational as far as possible, although some people don't take hints.

  16. A Master's in one year. Wow!

  17. Congratulations with the award. Cool to read your ten things >:)

  18. Yep, I'd have hung out with you in high school, too! Fun to learn about you, and to discover another non-knitter.
