As for the rules of the award - I am to list 10 honest things about myself and then pass the award on to 7 blogs. My 10 truths:

  1. I think I was suppose to be a guy, I think about sex to much. I do read more than I have sex though but don't read tons of romance, sex, erotic books, I like a variety.
  2. I studied Dance Education and was a professional dancer for 3 years but my passion was teaching not performing.
  3. I am a Human Resource professional, currently work at a hospital, HR was my calling, I am lucky to love what I do.
  4. I do not understand how to do hyperlinks, I have tried, sigh
  5. I can live on Earl Grey Tea, lasagna and water.
  6. My favourite book this year so far is The Manufactured Identity by Heath Sommer
  7. I do not do Facebook, Twitter etc, my only social network is my playgroup on iVillage
  8. Purple is my favourite colour, I have a purple pen, umbrella, lots of clothes, shoes, stapler, purple walls in house and my VW car. Oh and I'm wearing a purple jacket today.
  9. My dad has Dementia - this made me love the book Still Alice even more, its a must read.
  10. My 2 favourite vacation spots have been Capri in Italy and Vegas baby.......

I would like to pass these awards onto the following bloggers. It would be great to know more about you but also as a thank you because I have added to my TBR list because of many of you.

So there you go friends - I love passing on awards but it really is hard work. :-)

Thanks for visiting Tea Time with Marce


  1. Congratulations on your awards! You are lucky to have been born and raised in paradise.

  2. It is wonderful that you still think of it to be paradise :-) I do feel blessed though.

  3. I love Earl Grey tea too. My aunt's favorite is Lady Grey :-) Unfortunately, I have neither in the house at the moment. Somehow I'm down to green tea (which I also enjoy but I like to have a choice!).

  4. Marce-Congratulations on both of your blog awards and thank you for passing them on to me! I just received the Honest Scrap Award recently so I won't be passing that one on at this time but the Kreative Blogger award is new to me. Your 7 things and 10 truths are really interesting. You sound like quite the world traveler. Have you been back to Bermuda? I hope you enjoy Ash. Thanks again!

  5. You live in Bermuda!? I just realized that. That's cool. I recently met someone from there. The place is extremely beautiful and the people, grand. DO you like cricket?


  6. Thank you sooooo much for the award! I feel so awesome!

  7. Hi Marce, thanks for visiting my blog. I finally added a label widget so you can find a memoir easier. I love memoirs! And I also love Augusten Burroughs. I read Running With Scissors and A Wolf at the Table.

    I just read a good thriller called The Last Child. Couldn't put it down.

    To do a hyperlink, when you are in your new post, type the word you want to show up like "click here" or "review" or whatever. Then in another window copy the url (highlight and right click and "copy"), then go back to your new post and highlight the word "click here" or "review", click on the little picture that when you hover over it says "insert link" (it's next to the B(bold) and i (italic) sign. When the link box comes up, delete the "http" so you don't end up with two of them, right click in the box and click "paste" and the url address you copied will come up. Or you can just type in the url yourself. That's it!

    Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

  8. Thank you!

    I'll post my answers in the next few days. That's so cool that you've found a career that is really what you want to do. I still need to figure out what I want to do with my life (having gone through one career that I enjoyed greatly at the time, but isn't what I want to do now).

  9. Thanks Marce for the award...:D Purple is my fav color too....

  10. Congrats! I like reading about bloggers.

    If you use Firefox, they have an add-on called BBCodeXtra that I use for my links. It makes my life a lot easier.
