Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Thank You!!!

I'm so excited! I recently received another Versatile Blogger Award nomination from kshawnedgar , a terrific poet whom you should mos def check out! I know I'm supposed to nominate 15 more bloggers, but having just done so, my brain is fried. I will, however, dredge up 7 more "fun facts" about myself.
  1. My name "mouse" came from my squeaky laugh which was mercilessly evoked by someone named Andy in high school Physics class nearly every day.
  2. I am Jewish and my husband is Italian Catholic. We celebrate a lot of holidays and eat well!
  3. My favorite color is pink (don't hate!)
  4. I spent many early Saturday mornings in colleges as an escort for Planned Parenthood.
  5. I hate horror movies! My friends dragged me to see the Excorcist in high school and to the famous steps in Georgetown that the priest fell down, and I don't think I have ever recovered!
  6. I hated reading in grade school until my father gave me his copy of Catcher in the Rye. It is still one of my favorite books.
  7. My favorite jellybeans are the black ones.
I do have one person to nominate for the Blogger award. She is a prolific writer, very thoughtful, and has a lot to say about herself, women, and the world she lives in. I nominate Olivia at http://oliviasbiopiclog.wordpress.com/. Check out her blogs. I'm sure you'll find something interesting!

i hated reading in grade school, too. seemed like all the other girls were reading Babysitter's Club. i tried one and never finished.
i didn't really start enjoying reading until i was in high school and my best friend forced some fantasy novels on me.

My favorite colour is also pink - AND in my would be college years, I spent many an early Saturday morning as an escort! Full stop. Ha!

'Grats on the well deserved award!

Olivia said...

Geeee.. thanks a very big bunch. I am just so honored!
This makes me feel big - hehe!

I too hate watching horror movies. For someone who takes a lot of time to recover, while in transition, it is always a bad choice to watch one! I stay completely on my own and roam around in midnight (if not sleepy) or when lights are out (damn the electricity), I feel those ugly faces are watching me from a distance! eeeerie..

I Thank you so much for bestowing this honor. Will put this up soon and link back :)

Thank you Brian, Thank you Ji.. I am gloating now- beyond myself- wishing you all a very lovely weekend

Hugs xoxoxox
