A Stylish blogger? Who, me?

The very sweet Kelly of {Love'Art'Child} gave me a Stylish Blogger Award!

In thanks for getting the award, I'm tasked with telling you all eight things about myself. Over the course of the next few weeks, you guys will be learning a whole lot about me (I'm thinking) due to the 30 Days of Lists project, so I'm going to try to come up with eight things that I didn't cover in my roundup last Friday and that might not come up from here on out.

1. I am 1/32nd Cherokee Indian. (The other bits are Irish, English, Scottish, German, French ... which is why I in no way look Native American.)
2. I seriously considered becoming both a CIA agent and an astronaut while I was in high school.
3. I've never broken a bone.
4. My dream car is a 1970 fire-engine red, fully-restored Chevy Nova.
5. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and first love, although we weren't together for more than 5 years during college.
6. I suffer from some pretty severe (at times) social anxiety and rely heavily on my sunglasses as a crutch when I am out and about. This makes me come off as cold and/or bitchy when I'm in new or strange settings.
7. I don't drink Diet Coke for the lack of calories; I like the taste way better than that of regular Coke.
8. I've lived in states that border the Pacific, Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. I've never lived in a state that didn't
have a coastline.

And now, I tag:

File Me Away
Fur Elisse
Liz Lemon
My 365.
More than ...
Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others
Sugar + Razor Blades

Don't feel like you need to post about this, I just wanted you to know that I enjoy your blogs, and I think you're all fabulous! (And also, there are so many others out there who are equally as deserving. If it wouldn't get ridiculous, I'd give one of these awards out to pretty much my entire Google Reader list.)
