Sadly, not many of us could think of POC couples and I'll be posting about that this week for recommendations and a rant :)

I'm so behind on my awards post and I apologize x100 for that! Huge thank you to everyone who gave me an award. I have two others (I think?) and I'll post them next time.

Ten Trivia Facts-Hmm what have I not already shared?

1. I'm liking the show the Deep End on ABC, I needed a new law show after Raising the Bar was cancelled :( Anyone got any better recommendations?

2. My favorite colors are purple and blue

3. I love Pres. Barack Obama (that doesn't mean I won't disagree with him over issues but I love him and his whole fabulous family!)

4. I really loved the Princess & The Frog. I just wish they hadn't been frogs for the whole movie!

5. I was supporting the Saints (Who Dat) in the Super Bowl.

6. I'm a Cubs fan

7. All the race issues that have flared up this week have gotten me kind of down, so I need some future fun post ideas!

8. I love hosting giveaways-Being able to give away a book I liked or loved feels great (as long as I have my own copy, LOL)

9. Something I've been wondering: Do people mind text/IM speak in blog posts? (i.e. LOL, BTW, NBD, etc.)

10. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. I thought I did (politics or community organizer or life-long volunteer) and then this blog came along and I started thinking, publishing house CEO.

This award is given to those who have given you awards back as a thank you :)
I received it from Abbey at QT Bookworm

Everyone should go visit the blogs that gave me an award and that I passed the award onto :)

Oh and a small request. If you see that I've already gotten the award you are about to pass on to me, please don't pass it on. I love receiving awards but I always forget to post them and then I feel guilty. At least don't give me the same ones during the school year, I have more time in the summer so I'm less likely to forget! Also, let me know if you feel the same way (so I don't send the same awards to the same people) or if you don't mind.


  1. Congrats on the awards and thanks so much for passing one on to me! *huggles* :)

  2. Awww, thanks!


    Also, I love Obama too, but more in a I have a crush on him because I'm a history nerd way.

    Also, you would be an awesome CEO.

  3. Ari, what I love the most about your awards, is that make me discover fabulous new blogs! Thank you!

    Take a break from the whole Race discussion. People learn at their own pace, so even if you share lots of truthful historical facts with them, there is nothing you can do if they won't have an open mind and at least hear you out.

    Fun post ideas? Have you noticed that more and more commercials acknowledge the cultural diversity of the U.S? That makes me so happy! Maybe you could once share and post what your favorite video is...

    The latest that made me laugh like crazy is Old Spice. It's a bit adult though, but hilarious!

    I also like books that are loaded with good humor. So if you have any rec, I'm definitely interested.

    And the LOL, BTW etc... don't bother me, though I confess that I've had to google a few to know their meaning (well, a while ago).

    Congratulations for the awards, Ari! They are well-deserved: you work so hard, make it look effortless, and your blog is always much fun to read. :)

  4. Congrats on the awards, and thank you so much for thinking of me, I'm honoured! There's a couple of blogs you've mentioned there I'm not familiar with, so I'll have fun checking those out too.

    Good luck with the fun post ideas. And re: text speak in blog posts, I don't mind a little. If it's used for humour or in a chatty post that's fine by me. A whole post in text speak would make my eyes bleed though.

  5. Thank you, thank you!!!!!! Yay me!

  6. Whoa! Thank you, Ari! :D I didn't know you were a fellow Cubs fan. As we say every year, "This is our year!" *grin*

  7. Thanks so much, hun! And congrats on your awards! You deserve them!

  8. Thanks so much, Ari! And I appreciate your support for the Saints - WHO DAT.

  9. Congrats on the award! I like your answers - I too have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. I think it's just one of those things...


I love to hear from you!! Thank you for sharing :) And don't be Anon, I try to always reply back and I like to know who I'm replying to ;)
