Noll's Nip Receives the "Honest Scrap" Award

This award was given to Noll's Nip by JC of Lilacs & Cats
OK, since this award is about honesty, I divulge two things. First, I have dial up (I live in the country). Twice, I started looking up the blogs I wanted to give this award too only to log off cursing my slow modem. On the third attempt, I realized I wanted to give the award to more than 10 blogs. So, I'm going to give this award to everyone because I truly enjoy every blog I visit.
Now, for the 10 true things about myself, the human hiding behind the catnip curtain:
1.) I play the clarinet.
2.) I was a varsity cheerleader in high school.
3.) The first time I took the test for my driver's license, I flunked it.
4.) I am an avid reader. I am currently reading "Caramelo" by Sandra Cisneros.
5.) If I were allowed only one food for the remainder of my life, cheesecake would be it.
6.) I have an associate degree in journalism and a B.A. in English.
7.) If Tolkien's Shire were a real place, I would live there. For one thing, I am short enough.
8.) My dream is to write a book.
9.) London, England is my favorite place on earth (besides the Shire).
10.) I have a beautiful daughter who is working on her graduate degree.
