My Dirty Little Secret

Wa-aa-aa-ay back at the end of February, Lynz gave me a blog award -- and then I had a bummer of a March. Now I am ready to do by duty by the Liebster Award...


"Ok, then, these are the *rules*: this award is meant to highlight small blogs. So the blogger receiving the award links back to the blogger who awarded him/her, and tags 3-5 people. For those I am about to award, I should also point out there is no obligation to continue this award. If this is not your cup of tea, don’t worry."

Thank you so much Lynz! I will do my best to hold up the high standard for which this Liebster Award is known!

I would like to nominate...April (who might be having a baby as I type this), Greta, & Jenn.

Also, Oona has bestowed on my the IAAT Award. This one is right up my alley...


From beangirl: These things have to start somewhere, right? Why not me? And I mean, I figure I can operate under the time-honored tradition of believing that what is highly annoying in others is totally fabulous in oneself. Ergo, another meme with which to blatantly promote oneself whilst simultaneously irritating the crap out of everyone else. Awesomeness.

OK, so before I answer the IAAT questions, I have to share with you my dirty little secret. Don't judge me.

I love shoes.

There I said it. I recently read that the average woman has 5 pairs of shoes. This seemed ridiculous to me so I did a little research, and found this article, that states the average woman owns 19 pairs of shoes. So I counted. Not including athletic shoes or flip flops, I have just over seventy pairs of shoes.

That seems like a lot. You're not judging me, right?


1) What size shoe do you wear? If you wear a size 7, can I borrow your shoes?
I wear size 10. No you cannot borrow them, I just read that the average human sweats a cup of liquid from their feet per day. Of course, most statistics I read aren't true (see above).

2) 30s or 60s?
Can I choose 50s? Really? Then how will I decide, cause I could be this or this.


3) Have you ever kissed someone you shouldn't have?
Well, it's probably not a great idea to kiss the dog, but she's so cute!

4) Have you ever been poisoned? Was it by the girlfriend of the person you kissed?? That is awesomely "Knot's Landing".
Damnit, no! Why is my life so boring! We're more Sesame Street than Knot's Landing around here.


5) Who's on your "Celebrity Free Pass" list (top 5)?
1. Hugh Jackman...He sings! He dances! He's Wolverine!
2. Ewan McGregor...He sings! He dances! He's Obi Wan!
3. Joshua Jackson (Pacey!!)
4. George Clooney...He's the closest thing we've got to Cary Grant...
5. Lifetime achievement award: Harry Connick, Jr. Since I was in 8th grade....

*edited to add* I laid in bed last night feeling bad that I forgot David Tennant. I mean, how will he go on knowing he's not on my list. So David Tennant is number 5 and Harry is in the lifetime achievement spot.

And this award calls for sassiness, so I am passing it on to: Courtney, Lynz & Michelle! Ladies, feel free to play along or skip it! But I do enjoy your sassiness! Thanks, Oona (who might have more shoes than I do!!)

70 pairs of shoes! Congratulations!

I love shoe shopping too but I won't dare to count how many I have (albeit it will be less than 70 pairs but I have a lot of Birkenstocks!) I also don't want to think of foot sweat & effects on shoes. The thought has made me never to want to borrow anyone's shoes (including eliminating all bowling ~ not that I do much bowling) again...

Lynz said...

Holy crap, I am in love with your "allowed" list!! And HOW many pairs of shoes? *g* I think I have about 7 pairs. And then about 20 Rocket Dogs and Etnies and the like. Trainer Girl!!

Thank you for the nom, as well. I am skiving (Skiving? That's in Harry Potter, right? Skiving Snack Boxes? I'm at work but am obviously not doing any actual work!) and this may fill me in until coffee break very nicely. Ha!

Hahaha -- 70 pairs of shoes! You Go Girl!!! I need to introduce you to my DIL -- she manages a DSW and I'm guessing she has more than 70 pairs -- you two would hit it off LOL. And my son definitely has more shoes now than he did under my care -- I think he's learning shoe love from the wifey. Spring's here -- you definitely need to go shoe shopping!

Mama Bear said...

Wow! Thanks for the nomination. Your yummy man list is right on ;) And I would probably own 70 pairs of flip flops if my feet hadn't grown a half size with each pregnancy *yikes*!

Jackie said...

LOVE that last pair of shoes! I'm a size 10 too. I've learned to buy them when I find them. They won't be there later!

5 pairs of shoes is ridiculous!

Rachel said...

70?! Wow. I don't own a single pair of "proper" shoes - I have crocs, trainers, boots and flipflops but not a single shoe!
Mmm, Hugh and George would definitely make my list too! ;)

I WAS having a baby as you typed this, so I totally missed this link to me. Thanks for it. And for nominating me. My admin page of my blog just NOW told me about the link. Sheesh! ;)

P.S. You go girl, with over 70 pairs of shoes! I am a size 10, too. But I don't have 70 pairs. ha.
