As a recipient of this prestigious honor, I have to share 10 random things about myself and then pass the award along to 10 other bloggers! Yes, it's a chain letter type thing, but it's fun and I am happy to have received it.

1. I have a Chihuahua mix puppy named Lady.
2. My favorite TV show of all time is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
3. I am a firm believer in the power of garlic.
4. I lived in Brazil for almost a year to learn Portuguese, my mother's native tongue.
5. I am currently reading The Magician's Elephant, even though I am partway through The Road.
