Premio Meme Award!

I am so thrilled that my friend and fellow artist, Marlene of Marlene's Musings
honored me with the Premio Meme Award! This is my first award, so it is especially meaningful! The rules associated with this award are that I am to write seven little-known facts about myself, and then pass this award to seven of my fellow bloggers.

So....seven facts about myself. Here goes:

1-My grandmother, (my Dad's mom) was named Doris, but she was always Meme to me and my sister. So, this award really reminds me of her.

2-I have three dogs. Yes, three. AND...all of them live inside my house. The only one I bought was a white American Eskie mix, and I bought her from an animal shelter. The other two are purebreeds (pekingese and Japanese Chin); both were given to us by their previous owners, who could no longer care for them.

3-I am a huge fan of Dancing with the Stars. I harbor a secret desire to learn how to ballroom dance. (If Marie Osmond can do it, so can I!) I want to take lessons, but can find no one who is willing to take them with me.

4-I hate reality television, even American Idol. I have never watched American Idol. (No, Dancing with the Stars is NOT reality television, no matter what people may tell you.)

5-I have chronic insomnia....which is a problem, because there is nothing on television in the middle of the night except reruns of reality television, women giving birth on the discovery channel, and infomercials. (...Although I was persuaded to buy one of those Shark steam cleaners after seeing some lady demonstrating one in the middle of the night).

6-I love my Shark steam cleaner! It works great; but, if you get one, don't use the concentrator nozzle too close to the base of your toilet. I discovered this the hard way after I melted the wax ring under mine, which, in turn, caused a little leakage problem until the wax cooled off.

7-I once installed a toilet. It was just as gross and disgusting as you can imagine, especially that part where you have to scrape off the old wax ring residue. Ick. I plan to never do it again. But, now I know I can. I am woman. Hear me roar.

Okay, so that is a little bit of info about me that you probably didn't know and maybe even could have done without! Now I'm going to bestow the Premio Meme Award on the following bloggers. Hope you'll stop by and visit with them, too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jessie said...

Thank you all for the sweet comments! It's nice to know I'm not talking to myself.
Pam, I wish we lived closer to each other! We could take ballroom dance lessons together!

Pam said...


Lmao there is a reason I don't dance though - I am a total klutz. LOL Maybe you will find someone soon! :)

Heather said...

Thanks so much for giving me the Premio Meme Award! I really appreciate it.

I loved learning more about you =) We have some 'stuff' in commom - ROFLOL - I, too, have installed a toilet - and I think about as highly of the process as you do!

Jessie, I would love to come take ballroom dancing classes with you. Well...if I lived a lot closer and then we would have to fight over who gets to lead or not lead... On second thought, I don't think I want to lead. :) Great list!! I usually play computer games when I'm up in the middle of the night...it's cheap and boring.
