The Tulip Award -- and a new book!

First, I just wanted to let you know that there is a new book post at Chopsticks and String -- "Murder in Montmartre," by Cara Black -- part of a very good series set in France!

Quite some time ago, Annie from Imagine (formerly InMyDreamz) presented me with the Tulip Award for fun blogs to visit! At long last, I am finally getting around to passing it on!
Thanks, Annie! Your blog is fun, too!

Here's the meme that goes with it! And several fun blogs I enjoy visiting who perhaps will add this award to their stash (and do the meme, too, if they like!)

1. YOUR NICKNAME – My cousins call me Deet. I had it before the insecticide did.

2. YOU ARE – a “cup half full” person, pretty optimistic, trying to see the plus when I can.

3. YOUR MOST SPECIAL PERSON – Rick and the Kids, and the Gypsy, because we all know our pets are people.

4. YOUR FAVORITE SONG – Rodgers and Hart’s “I Could Write a Book.” Today. Who knows what it'll be tomorrow.


6. THINGS THAT MAKE YOU STRESS – Arguing/conflict and deadlines (and yes, I work in a deadline-driven business)

7. YOUR FAVOURITE COLOR – Bright apple/lime/chartreusey green (or tealy turquoise)

8. THINGS THAT YOU MUST HAVE IN YOUR BAG – lip balm/chapstick, my camera and enough cash to play with!

9. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED – The week of August 24, when I was so sick with my chronic bronchitis I thought I'd never have a day when I didn't cough uncontrollably again.

10. SIX RANDOMLY SELECTED FRIENDS – Theoretically, these folks will do the meme, but I hate to ask anyone to do these -- so many go around. So, here are six blogs I've recently discovered, but because I'm a bad blog maintainer, haven't added to my blogroll yet. Please stop by and visit:

A2EatWrite -- great food articles from Jen!
Life Through a Lens -- Beautiful things from Australia and Ols.
A Day in the Life of... -- From Joyce in British Columbia
The Magpie's Nest -- Way more creativity than you can imagine from Patty!
Is There a Shadow -- Beautiful art by Julie
MaeFoodBlog -- Wonderful food postings by Mae!
