Stylin' and Profilin'

I’m Stylin’
Thanks to my new friend, Janice Horton, I got hooked up with the Stylish Blogger Award. So the rules say I’m supposed to write 7 things about myself and then pass on the award to some of my favorite bloggers who are also supposed to pay it forward and share a bit about themselves and nominate their favs.
Here goes. My life is quite boring. I appologize in advance.
1)   I was raised in an orphanage in NYC. It wasn’t an easy existence, especially for a freckle-faced redhead with a nose for trouble, but I had some good pals, a stray dog named Sandy, and my songs. Singing always brings about a good tomorrow, don’t ya think?
2)   Sometime later, I was adopted by a bald fella who also had a proclivity for a good ol’ song and dance number. He was loaded too. Money, money, money.
3)   Still, life wasn’t easy. So my little family and I loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly—Hills, that is. We couldn’t believe our peepers at all the swimming pools and movie stars. Who doesn’t like swimming pools? Not this girl.
4)   We hung out in 90210 for a while making friends and dodging paparazzi when an outbreak tore our lives apart (dun, dun, dun).
5)   My bald adopted father took ill and turned into a bloodthirsty zombie. I severed my ties, if you know what I mean, with my old man and made my way across the country. I killed a few zombies, saved a few lives. What’s a poor orphan girl to do?
6)   We (my dog survived, of course) met a wonky old scarecrow on our journey and he suggested we take our troubles to the Wizard. The Wizard will solve everything. So we ditched that dunderhead and followed the yellow-bricked road to happiness.
7)   I couldn’t believe my eyes when I arrived at the Sober Valley Lodge. The Wizard aka Charlie Sheen greeted me with his Thing One and Thing Two or Goddesses as he called them. I marveled at his Mad Hatter appeal and knew the scarecrow was right: the Wizard would solve everything. I asked him how I could get my life back on track. He tapped his hands together and said, “Tiger blood.” That’s all it took.

My life’s never been the same since. I’m #winning. Tiger blood, baby.
And these bloggers are #winning too. Check ‘em out.

So if you bloggers want to claim your shiny award. Link back to me on your blog and then write 7 things about yourself and nominate your own favorite bloggers.

*I did get this award a few weeks ago and spaced it. So, I want to appologize to my friend Angela @ whimsywriting&reading  for not playing along. Check her blog out, especially if you like zombies. Besides coming down with a nasty plague of her own, she has a whole page devoted to the undead.

This is AWESOME! I'm so glad "Tiger Blood" can solve so many problems. I always loved tigers, really I did. Now it makes more sense why! Their blood is the key to being a wizard--a wonderful wizard of odds.

OMG, this is the best "7 things about me" EVER! Totally entertaining. #WINNING

Thanks so much for sharing your award with me, and for providing excellent Sunday morning funnies.

I read number one and thought, gosh, I didn't know that and it took me until #2 to realize we were being led on a funny!
I am so gullible!
