I was nominated by Cara Bristol for The Liebster Award. Here are rules, stolen verbatim from Ana Vitsky's blog:
Alright, now I suppose I need to answer Cara's questions first, so here goes:
Now, stuff about me you might not know:
1. I have never been seriously spanked as an adult
2. I have a fear of falling but not of heights
3. Using just my mouth, I can tie a knot in the stem of a Maraschino cherry
4. I love Barry Manilow and The Carpenters
5. I love single-malt scotch
6. I love the smell of single malt scotch on my love's breath
9. I'm a great cook but a lousy housekeeper
10. My love and I have been together in several past lives
11. I was raised Mormon--no joke.
While I had a ball answering these questions and telling you a bit about myself, I cannot bring myself to pester 11 people with this much fun, so on this part, I shall respectfully pass.
