Randomosity on Fridays: Stylin' Edition

Maybe traveling two weekends in a row was not a good idea because I am POOPED OUT, friends! Needless to say, my SF/Berkeley girls' trip with my favorite ladies was a smashing success. We went BIG (perhaps too big)! So when I say TGIF today, I really really mean it. I need SLEEP.

That aside, here's a slightly different randomosity for you today.

The lovely Medeia Sharif gave us an award, which I will pre-emptively pass on to you, dear commenters! You may see this as laziness (which it sort of is), but no! It is merely an expression of how very much I do appreciate your frequent visits and input. Your comments are like little pick-me-ups throughout the day. So thanks!

Without further ado, I present you with the...


Isn't it pretty? It's so sleek and stylish - like the Oscars will hopefully be this weekend!


The one condition that comes attached to this award is that you have to share 7 things about yourself and then pass it on to at least 7 people. Here's my 7:

1. I'm actually not that stylin'. The sister is way more stylin' than I am, which is why I often steal her clothes. Thankfully, we're generally the same size.

2. On top of being a slow reader, I'm a slow eater. What? I like to enjoy my food! The exception is ice cream. I eat that stuff so fast...

3. I'm a dog person, but I do like cats. I'd probably like them more if I weren't so darn allergic.

4. I'm a thoroughly Californian girl - born and raised in SoCal, higher-educated in NorCal, and higher-educated at the University of California.

5. Alz and I have known each other since elementary school. However, we did not really hang out until high school when Physical Education pushed us back into each other's immediate social circles.

6. I'm an unabashed nerd/geek - academically and pop culturally! Classics, history, literature? LIKE. Star Wars, Buffy, anime? LIKE. You name it, I've probably seen it.

7. Following up on that, I have a major crush on Alexander Hamilton, and not just for his shapely legs. (I kid you not on that last note. It's one of my favorite descriptive quotes about Hamilton from Ron Chernow's biography of him.)


Sharing the awarding love is up to you, but I would love to learn 7 things about you. So spill! Enjoy the last few days of February!

wow we really have quite a bit in common

Alright fellow SGV-er, when I'm over my strep throat completely, I'd like to ask you out on a lady's date - lunch or brunch mayhaps? Only if you want to!

It's really cool and you and Alz have known each other since elementary school. :)

And yay for anime! I've met very few writers online who is also into it.

That's cool you too have known each other for so long. I think not becoming friends with someone you've known your whole school life until you're forced together is fairly common. At least it happened to me with several people.

Congrats on the award!

Congrats on your award!

I can't give you seven things about myself, but I will share that I'd eat a tub of guacamole in a day and pretend it won't kill me.

I'm doing that right now, in fact.

Well, I think you're pretty stylin'. On the Internet, at least.

I love your seven things!

Congrats on your award :) Your seven things are pretty cool, though I'd have to say with food I'm the opposite. I can get my food after everyone and finish first :)

You have a stylish blog. :) I'm going to check out Alexander Hamilton, see who he is.
