A Blog Award!

I've been given a blog award!

Thanks to Sutton Fox for the honor of nominating my blog for the Reality Award.

According to the rules of the award, I need to share 7 facts you might not know about me...

humm...lets see..

1. I'm a natural blond. Or at least I was before my hair went mousy and grey-ish, so now it comes in a bottle.

2. I was named after a shop in Toronto. My mother was driving by a boutique and liked the spelling for Kathryn on the sign and that was that.

3. I was a trained animator in a different life. It was fun until I realized you actually have to be able to draw.

4. My handwriting is so messy I should have been a doctor. I do all my writing on my laptop so I can actually read it.

5. I love old movies. Arsenic and Old Lace with Cary Grant is one of my faves.

6. I like cottage cheese. There, I said it. I eat it plain and it is yummy.

7. My favourite book of all time is...The Little Red Engine, by Diana Ross and Leslie Wood. (This is very much pre-Thomas the Tank Engine days. We're talking the original epic train story, not the later smarmy knock-offs) My mother read that to me so many times when I was a kid I swear we wore out the library card. I think that the Little Red Engine's message which he repeats throughout the book: "I can do it! I really can." And, "I'm sure I can!" have stayed with me throughout my life 'cause it might take me a while to get where I'm going, but I'll get there in the end. :)

So now it's my turn to nominate 5 other bloggers for their inspiring, amazing, and lovely words:
