So here goes:
Like I said before, I was nominated for this award by a few marvelous bloggers who I mention at the top of the post. You should absolutely check out their blogs. They are all just lovely. Now, here are the rules for this award:
- Thank the person nominating you and link back to them in your post
- Share seven things about yourself
- Nominate fifteen or so bloggers you admire
- Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know
So here are my 7 things:
1. When I was a kid, I made my mother tell me what “The F Word” was one day after church because I was so afraid of saying it accidentally.
2. I worked for Victoria’s Secret for 5 years. For 2 of those, my actual title was “Bra Specialist”.
3. While working at Victoria’s Secret one of my bosses’ sons would go on to be on the MTV show 16 and Pregnant. I just did an internet search on them to see where they are now. Let’s just say they are not one of the 16 and Pregnant success stories.
4. Speaking of Victoria’s Secret, George Stults (Lucy Camden’s cop husband on 7th Heaven, brother of Geoff Stults from the gone-too-soon Enlisted) and his dad shopped in my store–which is a big deal since I live in Colorado, so the only “celebrity” I’m likely to see is a famous megachurch pastor, not someone from TV or movies. He and his father were both very friendly. This was early in the days of picture phones, so I didn’t think to snap a selfie with him, and I felt weird asking him to sign a bit of receipt paper. So let’s pretend this is the picture I took:
5. When I was a teenager, I went to a concert of my favorite boyband, Plus One. Because of the direction we drove towards the venue, we didn’t see the massive parking lot or line on the OTHER side of the building. So we, instead, parked in the parking lot behind the venue (right next to the tour buses, I might add), we waltzed in the back doors (a security guard was even guarding the door, but he let us right in), where I proceeded to, in a fit of grace and poise, walk directly into one of the band members. He said, “Oh, hey, sorry!” I said:
6. I once auditioned for the show Destination: Stardom with an original comedic monologue. I was in the 5th or 6th grade. People laughed at my monologue, but to this day I wonder if I was actually funny, or if they were just laughing because I was a kid trying something scary. If you couldn’t tell, I wasn’t selected.
7. I also auditioned for American Idol. I sang “Unforgettable”, got the worst sunburn of my life, and was also not selected. This was the year Ellen DeGenerous was a judge.
Now, I need to nominate like 15 or more blogs. So I nominate the lovlies in the Female Geek Blogger Google+ group, because you are all lovely blogs!
