The Versatile Blogger Award & 1st page contest with an agent!

My friend and fellow writer Lauren Ritz nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award. Thanks Lauren! Here's how it works:

Thank and link back to the person who sent the award.
Write 7 random facts about yourself.
Nominate 7 other bloggers for the award.
My seven random facts are:

1. I ran a marathon without training (much) with some friends when I was in college. I couldn't run for two weeks afterwards, but I placed 5th in my division. 
2. I was homecoming first princess my senior year in high school, but I didn't go to the homecoming dance.
3. I can tie a cherry stem with my tongue. 
4. I love sugar but I'm not supposed to eat it.
5. I fought forest fires one summer while I was in college and loved it!
6. I karate flipped the boy I liked in 3rd grade during a game of kissing tag when he caught me. All the boys chased me into the field but couldn't catch me, so they gave up. I shouldn't have played so hard to get. 
7. I never knew it would be so hard to come up with 7 random facts. 

The 7 bloggers I'm nominating for the award are: 
1. Pat Esden
2. Jack Flacco
3. Connie Keller
4. Daisy Carter
5. Kristin Lenze
6. T.Z. Wallace
7. Ashley Nixon

  1. Wow Alice, I didn't know any of that cool stuff about you. How fun! The forest fires one sounds like an adventure. You should write a story about that. LOL on #6.

  2. Thank you, Alice.

    I loved your 7 tidbits, especially about the fire fighting and the last one ;)

    I'll post my seven, but it'll probably be next week. Right now, I'm over the top crazy busy.

  3. I laughed at #2. And the firefighting was really interesting.

    Thanks for the nomination, Alice. I'll try and post my seven facts next week.
