The Sweet Blog Award

I was recently given The Incredibly Sweet Blog Award by Courtney Rene, a writer and book-lover who blogs about all things literary (many thanks hon!)

Those awarded must share four of their guilty pleasures, and then pass the award along.  So here goes:

1) I like my secrets.  I think, to some degree, it is a guilty pleasure to keep things secret even when asked, point blank, to let the cat out of the bag.  Rather like Margot from The Royal Tenenbaums.

2) I write in books.  And I'm not just talking about high-lighting and margin notes - I will actually write alternate endings if I am unhappy with the final chapter.  This is probably offensive to most authors in the world.

3) I daydream about blueprints.  You know, buildings I'd like to own someday.  I know this is a guilty pleasure because it is an incredible waste of time.

4) I really like ice.  To an absurd degree.  I go through a 10 LB bag of ice every week and a half.  By myself.

So there you have it.  I'm officially awarding the following blogs:

  1. Margot! Oh how we love her :)

  2. Thank you!! So grateful you've passed this my way!! xox

  3. Ice? Really? Hmmmmm. Okay. As for writing in books, I have to say...hahahaha as I do that. I wonder at times if other authors would find this offensive, but me, I dont care. If they spent the money on one of my books, I'm happy.


  4. neat and interesting things about you
    liked reading about you

  5. Ah, thanks for giving me this award! ☺ I'm in the middle of moving, so it'll be next week before I can post it - all of my posts this week were scheduled last week!

    I like to daydream about blueprints, too, and I love to draw room designs! ♥ I've got a post coming up on Sunday with drawings I think you'll like! ☺

  6. i still can't believe you eat that much ice... "weeeeirdo," as lorelai would say

  7. Ha, I love #2. I've never done this myself, but it seems like such a quirky thig to do, so I'm glad someone does it.

  8. I love that you write alternate endings in your books. That just may be the bestest coolest thing I've heard in forever.


  9. That's pretty cool!

    I love blue prints too.. Kinda for the same reason I love dictionaries: so many possibilities... I can day dream.

  10. Thank you so much :). I have been out of town and sick, so I'm just now seeing this!

    I feel honored! Thank you :).
