Well, somehow, I have managed to be nominated for another award. If I tag you, you're it!!!

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.

So, "Thank you, thank you, thank you" to Flying Down to Rio! You're the best :)

  • 1. I have "photographic movie memory." I never forget a face and come out undefeated when playing "name that actor," "name that movie," etc. I sometimes scare people... including myself!
  • 2. I can play the banjo. Haha, don't know if that's interesting or hilarious?
  • 3. I double-majored in English and Classical Languages and Literatures, which means that (at one point in time) I could translate ancient Greek.
  • 4. Theda Bara : Arab Death : : Meredith Grau : Rue Grim Death! ;)
  • 5. Have been told I look like: Uma Thurman, Angela Lansbury, Kristen Bell, Ali Larter, and Meryl Streep. Tell people I look like: Samuel L. Jackson. Haha!!!

  1. #1 sounds so handy!! I wish I possessed that skill. I am forever watching a film where I know that I've seen such and such an actor but can't quite place him.

  6. And how! Thank you Meredith! You're a swell kid!
    I've been frightfully occupied lately (my second child was born) but this award certainly gives me a kick in the head to post something really soon. I like friendly kicks!
