My blog is over the top (apparently)

My bud Bridget gave my blog an award:

And the award comes with a questionnaire, which is kind of fun.

1.  Where is your cell phone? Hopefully not in the hands of one of the little people. Oh, now I see it - it's on the kitchen island.
2,  Your hair? Long, thick, straight, four shades of brown plus grey (all natural, though that probably should change).
3.  Your mother? On the trip of a lifetime to Egypt.
4.  Your father? On the same trip with Mom.
5.  Your favourite food? I can't choose just one! Lobster, I guess.
6.  Your dream last night? I sleep so deeply, once I get to sleep, that I almost never remember my dreams.
7.  Your favourite drink? Vodka gimlet.
8.  Your dream/goal? To raise happy, wonderful kids; be financially comfortable; knit and design for a living.
9.  What room are you in? "The" room chez Purly - living/dining/kitchen/study/library. When they renovated this apartment, they took down the walls between the kitchen, dining and living rooms.
10. Your hobby? Knitting.
11. Your fear? Most of the ... smaller ones (giving up my marriage, home, career, making myself dependent upon others) have come to pass, and I'm still here, so I'll go with a more mundane one: claustrophobia.
12.  Where do you want to be in six years? Where I am now but with more financial stability. Although, you know, fame and riches would be OK, too.
13.  Where were you last night? Home eating takeout chinese with my sweetie with the kids asleep down the hall - it's a glamourous life, but someone has to lead it.
14.  Something that you aren’t? Confrontational.
15.  Muffins? Blueberry or cranberry, for preference.
16.  Wish list item? A stylish clothing budget and places to wear such items.
17.  Where did you grow up? Wilmette, Illinois.
18.  Last thing you did? Filled up Penelope's milk sippy.
19.  What are you wearing? Jeans, t-shirt, and a hoody sweater (the uniform).
20.  Your TV? Useless without the DVR.
21.  Your pets? Riley (giant grey short-hair cat with white mittens, socks, and bib).
22.  Friends? All over the world.
23.  Your life? Very good and totally worth the minor frustrations.
24.  Your mood? Happy.
25.  Missing someone? My out-of-country family members (sissy in Afghanistan and mom & dad in Egypt)
26,  Vehicle? Feet, subway/bus, Zipcar.
27.  Something you’re not wearing? Shoes.
28.  Your favourite store? Yarns in the Farms.
29.  Your favourite colour? Blue blue blue!
30. When was the last time you laughed? Two minutes ago when Nick played peekaboo behind me for the kids' amusement.
31.  Last time you cried? Ugh, probably last month over some divorce/financial thing.
32.  Your best friend? Karen, since seventh grade and forever - I couldn't have survived without her.
33. One place that I go to over and over? Shake Shack.
34. One person who emails me regularly? My dad, though I still remember when he called me at work one day and asked me to send him an email so he could write me back. And now he's sending us pictures with his Blackberry in Egypt! The Luddite has joined the 21st century.
35. Favourite place to eat? Five Islands Lobster Dock.

And now it's my turn to nominate six other, worthy bloggers:
