Well, 80 years of blogging here and finally I get an award. Thanks to Kathleen! Now, with the Blogdiggity Award, I can retire. Here are the rules:

"1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass along the award to 15 bloggers you think are hella awesome.
4. Contact said hella awesome bloggers & let them know you think they are the blogdiggity.
5. Retire."

I've done #1 now. Here's part #2.

1. My mother finally allowed me to quit ballet lessons when I was 7 or 8 years old after I sat on the floor of the ballet studio and refused to move. I was not as lucky with flute lessons.

2. Decades ago when I was young and good-looking, I starred in a Chinese television commercial. In exchange I got to use the pool and sauna for free, which I never did because they were always being repaired.

3. On my left hand, my index finger is shorter than my ring finger. On my right hand, my index finger is longer than my ring finger. I've blogged about this before.

4. I would probably be perfectly happy not working. My husband says I’d go stircrazy, but I don’t think so. I like reading and writing and if I have time I even like housework. The footnote being I would be perfectly happy not working as long as I was still able to collect a decent income.

5. If we split the country in two, and in one half everyone had the “right to bear arms” and in the other half there was a blanket ban on guns, I would choose to live in the latter half.

6. I love the Frankfurt cemetery. It’s an easy walk from my house. You can sit there all day and cry and no one will think you’re weird or possibly insane.

7. I just spent 7 minutes and 49 seconds on the phone with my son, who’s home alone today, instructing him on how to make French fries in the oven. I will be calling him back when the estimated cooking time has elapsed to make sure everything is okay.

I'm afraid I have to stop here at #3. Not because I'm self-centered, but because I've leafed back through the string of bloggers who've won this award and I'd be naming a bunch of people all over again. And the cycle of madness would go on.

that step 5 is the truly elusive one. it parallels the pool/sauna, the promise of relaxation that is more mirage than oasis.

you are certainly blogdiggity. i don't know how you are able to use the keyboard so readily with those malformed hands.

Wait, I forgot #5! Or did my pinky delete it, as sometimes happens?

I truly hope the French fries are OK.
