Sugar Doll Blogger Award

Right before I went on my holiday, the Amazing Trina, at Me So Hongry, presented me with the ever-so-awesome Sugar Doll Blogger Award:

As a newly appointed Sugar Doll, I must do the following:
– Thank the recipient…check (wait, does that mean I thank myself? No. Thanks Trina!)
– Link back to the giver…check.
– Reveal 10 things about me


OK. 10 Things you don’t know about me already. Hmmmm.

1- When I was little I wanted to be either a Doctor or a Waitress. True Story.

2- I can imitate accents and some singers quite well. I have an “ear” for these things which is why I do pretty OK in languages and Karaoke Contests.

3- I wore bifocals as a very small child for several years. I had those “coke-bottle bottom” glasses and was picked on quite badly. When I was just about to go into the 7th Grade I told my mother I *had* to have contact lenses or I would kill myself.

4- I should have been an actress. See above dramatics.

5- I did actually do some music theatre. My biggest role? Poopsie in the Pajama Game. Rock on Alamogordo Music Theatre!

6- I once won a week’s admission free at the Looney Tunes Film Festival in Portland, Oregon. I had to imitate my favourite cartoon character. I did the “Bugs Bunny” Dance on stage.

7- I have eaten frog legs, nails, rattlesnake and even “calf fries” (if you don’t know, you may not want to know) and I liked all of them. Don’t give me brussel sprouts though, please, or I will chuck up on the table.

8- I once sported the Sinead O’Connor bald head look. It actually looked ok on me. Hey. It was 1991, don’t laugh.

9- I used to bite my nails. I still have issues occassionally under severe stress that I pick at my cuticles. It’s a nasty habit that everyone notices.

10- I have a younger brother I am not close with at all. I have always wished I had a sister or at least that my brother and I had a good relationship. Because of this I often feel alone, or like an only-child might feel.

And now, a few people I would like to pass this award on to are:

Brooke – Not on a Diet
The Incredible Shrinking Girl
Fat Girl Slim
Half of Jess
See Glam Diet

Thanks again Trina, I think you are also an amazing Sugar Doll!

    I am an only child and it’s nice being alone. I don’t have to share! HELL YEAH. Plus, I just get closer with my parents. Sometimes though, too much arguing and nagging. Darn parentals.

    As for frog legs, SO FREAKING GOOD. Tastes like fried chicken if you make it right.

    I used to bite my nails too. Gotten so much better. My nails are actually strong now! Who knew.

    I can’t imitate accents at all, so I don’t try. But I can learn/remember languages quite well. That was extremely helpful when I was backpacking :)

    Thanks for the award. I’ll make a blog post about it soon (aka tomorrow). I have a lot of bloggie awards I gotta lump together (because I suck and will forget).

      Parentals will always be annoying at times. I told the kids I was “born to be their party pooper” which is kind of funny since “party pooper” doesn’t exist in Dutch! Now we kind of laugh when I say “sorry to be the party pooper but…”

      I’m totally open to trying different foods. There is hardly anything I don’t like!!

      Feel free to put up your award or not :) you get more traffic than I do so for now it makes my blog more interesting!!

    Hi, just found your blog, please come see mine!! I have worn glasses since I was 6. I now use them to accessorize!

    1. Renée says:

      Hey Kristi! I have worn mine since I was One year old! i wear my glasses now much more regularly – no more drama about them anymore. Funnily enough, they are very similar to Liss’ glasses and we had both had them before we’d met each other!

  3. Fran says:

    I started biting nails a few weeks ago since I’ve removed my gel nails and they break all the time now. And I’m not close to my younger sister either but that doesn’t bother me. To me friends are more important than family (except for my parents).

    The book is called Half Marathon you can do it! and I’ve bought it at BOL.

    1. Renée says:

      I had that temporarily after I had my gels removed last year. then I started going to my nail lady for her to just give me a proper manicure every two weeks. was much cheaper and now I don’t really need her anymore (sounds terrible; she’s lovely but I’m spending the money on the gym nowadays).

      I’m not really superclose with anyone in my family unfortunately. Being this far away also doesn’t help. I suppose people generally want what the don’t have, right?

      thanks for the book title, I will go and check out Bol!!

  4. Yay! Thanks for the award!! I will work on the post soon!

    I love random facts about people!

    1. Renée says:

      I think random facts are more interesting than my weight loss related posts! I may have to do it more often :)

      and you are welcome!!

  5. […] Now, Renée was kind enough to gift me with a Sugar Doll Award in her latest entry. […]

  6. Thank you soooo much! I’m flattered!

  7. glam says:

    Sweetness! I love awards!

    That’s quite a list you’ve got there. Calf fries?! You’re right, I don’t want to know. And kudos for rockin’ the baldness. I could NEVER do that. I’d look like a confused bowling ball…

    Will post on my blog this week. (hopefully!)
