Over the Top

About the time I had just gotten into the illusion series, Kay from Kay's Thinking Cap (with a great blog of her own) nominated me for an award called Over the Top. There are just two steps to accepting it: 1) Complete a survey with one word answers. (that isn't easy) 2) Choose three bloggers you think should receive the award

1. Where is your cell phone? charging
2. Your hair? long
3. Your mother? beautiful
4. Your father? strong
5. Your favorite food? eggs
6. Your dream last night? imaginative
7. Your favorite drink? undefinable
8. Your dream/goal? passion
9. What room are you in? den
10. Your hobby? painting
11. Your fear? loss
12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? cabin
13. Where were you last night? home
14. Something you aren’t? shy
15. Muffins? poppyseed
16. Wish list item? willpower
17. Where did you grow up? Washington
18. Last thing you did? walk
19. What are you wearing? jeans
20. Your TV? off
21. Your pet(s)? cats
22. Your friends? creative
23. Your life? interesting
24. Your mood? contemplative
25. Missing someone? yes
26. Vehicle? blue
27. Something you’re not wearing? hat
28. Your favorite store? costco
29. Your favorite color? black
30. When was the last time you laughed? yesterday
31. Last time you cried? yesterday
32. Your best friend? husband
33. One place that you go over and over? mailbox
34. One person who emails you regularly? Bernie
35. Favorite place to eat? Macayos

So for choosing three bloggers, who can opt to join in or not, it isn't easy as I have many regular blog reads, some of whom have already gotten the award. Hopefully the next three had not:

Four, you say there are four? So sue me. Just be grateful I didn't put my whole blog list here as I think all of the blogs there are 'Over the Top.'

Wow. Was working on a blog about my blog, the words got a bit slow so I popped into my dashboard to see if there was anything new to read, and I found this. With a very humble bow, I thank you for your appreciation.

That one word limit is an interesting twist. I can see how it would make it more of a challenge, one that you have done well.

Annotated Margins said...

Congratulations! I always look forward to reading your blog. The words are thoughtful and well written. Rainy Day Thoughts is worthy of awards.

I've seen this on a couple of other people's blogs and you are the first one who actually only used ONE Word! A number of people used two words for more than half....And I know it has to be truly excrutiatingly difficult to stick to only one word! So I say
BRAVA to you, my dear...!
