Mystery Blogger Award…

A very sweet friend of mine, Patty at Scarlett 79, was kind enough to nominate me for this award.  I told her I’d play along, but since I’ve shared ad nauseam about my breast cancer and resulting baldness and now short white hair and new boob (and that was just since August) I cannot imagine there’s much mystery remaining!

Rule 1: Put the award logo/image on your blog.

Rule 2: List the rules.

Rule 3: Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

Rule 4: Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.  Okoto Enigma’s blog

Rule 5: Tell your readers three things about yourself.

a)  I adore writing fiction, though I started my blog as a book reviewer, hence the name

b)  I love sports, especially the Chicago Cubs baseball team, and have ever since I was a teenager taking the El to games! (The El stands for elevated train, which is a form of public transportation in the Chicago area)

c)  My favorite color is turquoise, though I love black clothing
Rule 6: You have to nominate 10 to 20 people.  Nope.  If you would be so kind, please copy this and tell us about yourselves if you are so inclined.  It’s not that I don’t want to, I just hate to make people feel obligated…
Rule 7: Notify them.

Rule 8: Ask your nominee any five questions of your choice, one weird or funny question.

My five questions to answer:
What is your dream job?  Naming the nail polishes for OPI.  Or being a published novelist.
If money were no object, where would you live??  Hawaii.  Would you work??  Only at getting a tan!
What is your favorite kind of animal???  Dogs.  Do you have any animals??  Two sweet old dogs
East Coast or West Coast??  I like both, have spent more time on the East Coast
What is your favorite food of all time???  Crabcakes
Who’s going to win the Stanley Cup ???  I cannot bring myself to care after the Chicago Blackhawks were eliminated 😦
Rule 9: Add a link to my best post.  This is the first fiction piece I posted.

Cajun Shrimp…

20160524_175646

My pedicure today.  Hubby says red, but I think it’s pretty obvious the color is OPI Cajun Shrimp…a spicy coral shade that will look even better with a tan!  Cute sandals, too, right?

I think I like it, had to choose a new color because salon did not have my favorite called My Chihuahua Bites.  DDIL chose Fearlessly Alice, a medium blue, with a silver and blue glitter topcoat, from the OPI Through the Looking Glass Collection.

My dream job would be naming new OPI nail polishes.  I don’t think that’s asking too much… 🙂
