". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Along with the award was a meme, so here goes:

I'm supposed to tag seven people, but I'm only going to tag one. She is far and away the most creative, eclectic, unpredictable blogger I know. If she's already received this award, she can just consider this an exclamation point. Elephant's Child, take it away.

LOL! I hope that's "unpredictible" in a good way!

"Amen" is number 8? Even factoring in your lovely son who demands a full fourth of the list, I thought that would be higher. :)

EC, it's most definitely a good sort of unpredictable.

And Hannah, there was no prioritizing involved in the numbers--just listing, like bullet points.
