Sunday Love

I love that both Jin and Toot gave me the Stylish Blogger Award! Love these girls!

The first part of the award is that I have to share seven things about me. I kept it animal related for some reason! Oh, maybe because I have kittay haggling on my mind? Huh.

(1.) We kept doves first. I remember my father brought them—two, male and female—home from the city. Later she’d lay an egg. Or maybe they came with the egg. I can’t remember which. I was maybe five.
(2.) Around the same time, we kept our first cat because he kept sneaking into our house to steal our food and then we let him stay.
(3.) The time I saw two slugs making sweet love hanging from the top of my window still makes my skin crawl (see here + here). I was maybe fourteen then.
(4.) Vex Kitty won’t share with Suave Kitty.
(5.) The animals we’ve kept? Doves, Cats, Dogs, Parakeets, Fish, Hamsters, Gerbils, Chickens, a strange Rabbit who terrified our cat at the time, etc. Huh, I can’t remember what else.
(6.) Don’t ask me how I know that Blue Cheese salad dressing taste like ants.
(7.) Once, my father bought some baby chicks for our coop and left my sister and me in the yard to watch them. But I accidentally stepped on one. It’s totally depressing to hold a limp dead chick in your hand.

The next part of the award is that I have to pass it on to five people, but since both Jin and Toot gave me the award... I’m passing the award to ten eleven great bloggers, most of them I’ve only recently discovered! I think that awards are so helpful in telling someone that you appreciate their presence in blogworld. Hey, go say hello!

EDIT - here's the award (below) as I forgot to post it earlier!

Thanks for the award, you are just so sweet! I'm glad I found your blog too!
My Dad used to work in a chicken coop, so he brought baby chicks home all the time. Sorry to hear you stepped on one, we probably did to, but don't remember.
Hope you are having a great weekend!

Wow, thank you so much! I guess now I'm stuck in this blogging world :P. Nah I enjoy doing it too much to stop, and I'm just glad you enjoy it too!
Btw, those slug pictures should come with some kind of warning.

Slug sex is intense and would mess me up for life. Glad to see you've pulled through;)
