I love the little thrill and warm fuzzies that come with a blog award:) Thank you, Leslie, for bestowing this upon me. And for giving me something to look forward to, other than dirty laundry and piles of mail, when I returned from vacation.
The rules of this award are:
1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award ever!
2. Choose one of the following options of accepting the Oh My Blog! award:
(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight,or for as long as you can focus.
(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment.
(c) Write a “soundtrack of your childhood” post.
(d) Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog.
(e) Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning,before you do anything else (hair, make up, etc) and post it.
3. Pass the award onto at least three, but preferably more, awesome bloggers and let them know.
The thing I am learning about awards is some bloggers love them (like me) and some bloggers don’t. And sometimes, finding a blogger who hasn’t yet gotten a particular award is like… hmmm… like finding a healthy treat in the snack food aisle!
So here goes… I pass this award on to:
Linda (even though she got this award between the time I drafted this and the time I posted it) because she is the first person I thought of when it came to passing it along, and, because she is a wonderful writer; hers is one of the few non-diet/weight loss blogs I faithfully follow.
Julie because she just started The South Beach Diet and, if she is at all like I was during the first couple of weeks, might need a little distraction from thoughts of food:)
Sarah in appreciation of the group challenge she started even though I have not yet managed to meet my challenge goal even one of the weeks.
Now for the part where I meet the award’s requirements by picking an option from the list above. I am not much of a drinker. And I have no idea how to vlog. And I have blocked my most embarrassing moments out of my memory. As for a picture, I hate to have the first image of me on the blog be so unflattering. So… I am going with the soundtrack of my childhood.
Music I listened to in the privacy of my room: Tony DeFranco – “Heartbeat, It’s a Love Beat.”
Music I borrowed from my parent’s record collection: The Fifth Dimension – “Up, Up and Away.”
Music I sang (poorly) in the car with my brother in harmony: “All for the Best” from the soundtrack of Godspell. I can still remember all the words to both parts.
Music that energized me as I jumped with my cousin on her bed: The Jackson Five – “ABC.”
Music that entertained my whole family as we watched TV: Tony Orlando and Dawn – “Tie a Yellow Ribbon.”
Music that was imprinted on my brain at a very young age: From Sesame Street – “Rubber Ducky” and “C is for Cookie” and, sing it with me now, “Can You Tell Me How to Get…”
What about you? Any songs stand out from your own childhood? Or that you still listen to today? Anyone besides me still know all the words to the Gilligan’s Island and Brady Bunch theme songs?
P.S. If you are like me and love getting blog awards, send me an email sometime (you can use my cool new contact form, thanks to Cammy) to let me know and I will happily pass one on the next time I get one:)
