Passing It On: The Sugar Doll Blogger Award
I was so surprised to find that Lana over at Living It, Loving It just suggested I receive the Fabulous Sugar Doll Blogger Award.
To continue the fabulousness, I'm supposed to let you know 10 things you don't know about me (hmmm...!) and suggest 5 other bloggers (that's the easy part!). So here goes!
10 Things You May Not Know About Me
1 I have many nicknames, some dating way, way back: Larry, Luigi, Algae, Lor, Lurleen, Leo, Dixie and I'm sure others I'm not even aware of (!).
2 I wanted to be a vet or marine biologist (shades of Jacques Costeau!) when I was growing up.
3 I love animals – sometimes I think more than people...
4 If I had to pick, I'd go for British over American television.
5 I was a bookworm growing up.
6 I never paint my fingernails colours, only my toes.
7 I love to travel but hate to fly – not because I'm scared, but just because I find it so bloody uncomfortable (and that was before the RA diagnosis!!).
8 I was meant to be rich (something obviously went seriously awry!).
9 I speak some German, Italian and French – enough to get by day-to-day, but not at all fluently.
10 I don't hold grudges, but I do obsess about things.
Passing It On
Here are my picks for 5 other bloggers without whom my RA journey would be a much lonelier one. They keep me company, give me support and make me laugh. Thanks so much, ladies!!
1 Wren at Rheumablog – could there be anyone more supportive?
2 Helen at Pens and Needles – just the cheer I often need, and she's Canadian!
3 WarmSocks at Itis – another great support in a cold RA world.
4 Mariah at From This Point. Forward. – a law student who makes me laugh and props me up.
5 Bionic Pony at, yes, Bionic Pony! – a funny Canadian RA'er.
Check them out! You're sure to enjoy their blogs! And thanks, Lana!!
