Take 5 Tuesday August 19, 2008 and more...

Woohoo! It's Take 5 Tuesday and more
You know the drill, if you complete a list of your own, please make the nosey lady happy and link back so I can check you out!

1. 5 things you're good at.

-Writing/Blogging (see below)
-Remembering names and faces (and a good thing since I'm geographically inept)
-Retaining information
-Party planning
-Likening humans to animals (long story-just trust me)

2. 5 things you wish you could say to someone.

-"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got."
-"At some point you're going to have to stop planning and start acting"
-"I understand the point you're trying to make, but I still feel it isn't a point worth making."
-"For every finger you point three point back at you, that is something for you to consider."
-" Who are you when no one else is around?"

3. 5 times you can't help but smile.

-People watching, especially little people
-Watching Joe spin
-Watching my children interact with their peers
-Reflecting on the things I say and do while angry
-Talking to my cats and having them "talk" back

4. 5 things you do for fun.

-Watch documentaries on different cultures in far off lands
-Mixed media collage
-Vintage/Thrift shopping
-Talk to Jordan (teenagers: weird but interesting)
-Lurk/post on the Etsy fora

5.5 CDs you own.

My most recent purchases include:
-Rhythms del Mundo Cuba by Various Artists Featuring Ibrahim Ferrer & Omara Portuondo
-The Orchard by Lizz Wright
-Across The Pond by Various Artists
- This Kind of Love by Carly Simon
-Hear Music Opus Collection presents John Lennon

And now...
Remember how I was nominated for the illustrious Brillante Award a week or so ago and it kinda got foiled. I was nominated again! Is the universe good or what? Thanks Renee, you made my week in the most unexpected way. Well, let's get started, shall we?
Here are my picks for blogs that make me laugh, think, wonder, and imagine. In no particular order:

For the nominees here are the rules:
1) Add the logo of the award to your blog
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs

Ha! I did it! Peace
