Kreativ Blogger Award

I have been in some kind of writing coma this month. Consequently, I didn't get to posting this right away. I would like to thank two fabulous bloggers: Bob, for giving me the Kreative Blogger Award, and Kate, for recognizing this blog at her site with an honourable mention ("u" intended).

Bob's blog is one of the best and funniest, so to be acknowledged by him is truly an honor. Thanks Bob!

Kate's blog is Secret Office Confessions . This hilarious recounting of the day-to-day hijinx of her workplace is a must-read. Warning: read, and you'll be hooked.

I am following these guidelines for accepting this award:

1. Thank the person who gave the award.

2. Copy the award and place it on your blog.

3. Link to the blog that nominated you.

4. Tell your fellow bloggers 7 things they may not know about you.

5. Pass it on.

I have chosen to pass this award on to an intriguing new blog, The Monique Danger Chronicles . It's a well-written and entertaining look at an LA girl's dating adventures (and misadventures). I expect this one to catch on with the blogosphere pretty quickly.

And finally, the 7 things you didn't know about me bit:

1. I've never tried an illegal drug of any kind.

2. I dislike shopping malls.

3. I am equally happy living beyond, within, or beneath my means.

4. I am not a worrywart.

5. When I wake up in the morning, I prefer to not know what I'm going to do that day.

6. I generally like bad weather. It has more personality.

7. I've censored the #7 thing you don't know about me due to inappropriate content.

In a Pickle

This entry was inspired by the end of this post by FGS. It got me thinking about times I witnessed someone doing something unintentionally sensual, and times that someone was me. Have you ever witnessed (or perpetrated) something inadvertently sexual?

Once, not wanting to bother with dinner at home, I grabbed a bite to eat after work. I was sitting at the bar (which generally ensures the quickest service), and noticed a man occasionally looking over at me. After a long day of work, I wasn't feeling especially attractive, so I didn't at all think it was anything to do with showing interest.

He was within earshot, so after the fourth or fifth time I noticed him looking, I finally had to ask. "What?" He looked startled to actually be called on it, and seemed to consider his words for a moment.

He must've (accurately) decided I appeared more curious than annoyed. I seriously wondered if I had food stuck to my face, or some similarly embarrassing thing. He then said, very slowly, "Do you have... ANY ... idea ... how you look eating that pickle?"

No, actually, I did not! I must've gone three shades of red upon realizing that I hadn't been eating the pickle at all, just kind of absentmindedly sucking the juice out of it while awaiting my entree. He smiled sheepishly and said something like, "well, you asked."

Needless to say, I am exceedingly careful around pickles these days!
