Dear Liebster Award, eventually I am going to claim the moral high ground in this relationship. XO, Amanda

When Amanda of Denim & Daydreams nominated me, 
I was like, "Awesome name, What's a Liebster?"  
Guess what? I still don't totally know, but I am super excited!
Here we go: 
1. Link back to the person who nominated you
2. Write 11 facts about yourself once nominated
3. Answer the 11 questions from the person who nominated you
4. Come up with 11 questions for the 11 people you nominate

(1) I have a withering stare; (2) I am trying very hard to quit my job but work keeps coming in; (3) My sister is the funniest person I have ever met, true story; (4) I go disappearing a lot.  Last summer I went to Europe for seven weeks and told approximately three people who weren't my parents before I left; (4) My mix-tape is a masterpiece; (5) In the past three years, I broke my coccyx bone.  Twice; (6) I buy red wine by the case and there is usually no less than 20 bottles in the house at a time; (7) I go to great lengths to avoid public transport in the United States, but have used public transit all over Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Literally, I do not ride the NYC subway. No matter what, ever; (8) My grip on reality is rather loose and thus I am constantly managing my unwieldy expectations; (9) I drove my first car into the back of an oil truck, because I was turned around getting something from the back seat.  Let’s call it a compact disc from 1999, but know that I was really reaching for something else; (10) I went to a very small, odd college and joined a sorority while I was there.  Anyone who knows me can understand how woefully out of character that was; and (11) My girl crush on Scarlett Johansson is as genuine as my irrational hatred for Anne Hathaway.
