In 10 Words or Less

I have received three awards in my short blog life. I have received the Nice Matters Award three times, the Egel Nest Award, and The I'm Fabulous Award. I am starting to think that I look like an ungrateful witch because I haven't done a post about these yet. I want those of you who gave me these to know that I am not really evil. I am just a procrastinator. And I tend to agonize over decisions for way to long. I am trying to make sure that I pass each award on to the right blogger, as a result, I think I am taking way too much time to get on with it already. I am proud to announce that that post will be ready by tomorrow! So come by tomorrow night to see who the lucky recipients are.
My friend Cat at Soulsurvive has tagged me with a lovely new Meme. This is the stuff of genius. She created this meme, so I guess that means that she is a genius.

Hmmm...10 words or less, eh? Okay, I'll take that one on. I've got to cook dinner now, but I'll probably answer this tomorrow morning, and will let you know when it's up. Thanks for the tag! Bilbo.
