Liebster Award - Cruelty Free edition

Robyn, from Diary of a Disney Diva's blog nominated me for a Liebster Award.   Thank you!!

If you click on the link, you'll see she makes beautiful manicures and uses (as much as she can ) cruelty free products.

Liebster what ?

It's like a chain of letters, with a difference : we share blogs that we love!

But it doesn't mean there's no rules !

Here they are :

1- Once nominated, you have to publish about it on your blog & of course, thank the person who nammed you by linking to his or her blog.

2- In your post, you have to tell us 11 facts about you.

3- You'll also have to answer the 11 questions the person who nammed you left on his or her blog.

4- Choose 11 other bloggers with under 200 followers to nominate (not the person who nominated you), link to their blog and make sure you let them know they are nominated.

5- Choose 11 questions you want to be answered

6- The new nominees have to do the same, so the chain goes on!

Let's begin!

11 facts about me

Everyday, I think about Io
(2000-01-24  -  2011-09-28)

If I had only 1 wish , I would like to have her back into my life. Even if it meant I would have to take care of a diabetic dog once again.

I'm a personal line damage insurance agent

And I need a license to work. Every year, AMF renews it curiously...
It's obvious they don't know me!

When you work in the insurance field, you get to hear many weird things...

''Is my house covered by my policy if the wind gets in the house and blows up the roof ?''

'' Is my house covered if I destroy it in order to build a new one ? ''  What about no ? loll

My parents came from Azores to Canada in the 70's

I suppose they were like '' yeah! it will be lots of fun when it will be minus 30!!''
I don't think it's funny... Really...I don't... loll

I have a broken finger, did you notice ?

But I got lots of karma points in exchange, so I don't really mind.
Guess which one it is !

I'm vegetarian, becoming vegan & here's what I prefer to eat :

chocolate & caroub!!
etc etc etc

I sneeze like a cat, 8 times in a row and gracefully! People ask if I sneeze of cough!

I believe in Karma

that's what forbids me from doing a lot of stupid stuff !

I'm an animal trapped in a human body !

And I have more compassion for them than for people in general.

I live at Smarty's place. She's my 10 years old german shepperd.

I'm kinda lucky she lets me sleep in the bed!

As a child, I used to marry my barbies to my brother's GI Joes...

I had no Ken & I couldn't let them single!
I wonder if my brother knows ?!

I dream about Galapagos Islands

As long as I don't get bitten by a Komodo Dragon!
Seriously, I'd love to be an amateur Darwin :)

Raised in Iran, sent to Europe when the war was going on.
