Why am I Stylish?

My blogging buddy, Bill Kirton, claims I'm deserving of the Stylish Blogger Award. I don't know what I did to earn this prestigious award but am grateful for any bit of promotion or notice. I do wish, however, that I had a cool picture on my website like he has on his website. (I suspect that if I were a guy, and a crime writer, his photo would do me quite well.)

Anyway, as a stylish blogger, I'm supposed to tell you 7 things about moi that you never knew. Coming up with 7 things you didn't know isn't tough (I do have a few secrets) but coming up with 7 interesting things you didn't know is another story. I'll give it my best shot:
  1. I love Miss Piggy, Maxine, and sarcasm--which is at odds with my passive nature and sweet personality, but that's just how things go sometimes.
  2. Until I went to school, my best friend was Jimmy. Do you think it matters that he was imaginary?
  3. Me, the current owner of two canines (a lab mix and a German Shepherd mix) and past owner of two purebred Rottweilers, is afraid of dogs. Petrified is more like it if they're dogs I haven't formed a relationship with and they come running at me--even with their tails wagging.
  4. I'm afraid of the dark. Especially outside the house and in the basement. When I take Delaney out for his nightly walk, I won't go more than 20 feet from the house ... and I always have my cell phone in my pocket.
  5. I fully expect to hit the bestseller list someday. (Which one, you ask? I don't care!)
  6. I hate wearing clothes and only do so to avoid being arrested and laughed at.
  7. I am a firm believer that a woman's shoes and handbag should match. (And if she's wearing a belt, that should match, too.)


  1. Excellent Linda. Our knowledge of you grows by the week. I must say, having a wife who's terrified of dogs, I find the fact that you're the same and yet you have some rather bizarre. It's certainly interesting.

  2. I may be bizarre ... but at least I'm not boring!

  3. I certainly know you better now, Linda! Especially that part about hating to wear clothes. LOL

  4. I, too, love Maxine. But my belt, shoes and purse never match. I think it's amazing that you're scared of dogs yet have so many!

  5. Helen, I'm only afraid of dogs I don't know... :)
