A Liebster Award? For Me?

Well hey everyone!  Today I was checking on my little 'ol blog here and guess what?  I was tagged by Princess Ishyama over at Glittery and Polished for a Liebster Award.  What is a Liebster Award you ask?  Well, it's pretty much a chain going around from blogger to blogger (the nice type, not the scary 7 days to live type) to help people with newer blogs to get a little bit of recognition, and to help others notice these blogs.  The only catch is that you have less than 200 followers, so I most certainly fit the bill.  Yay!

Here are the rules:

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.

2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There's no tag backs.

11 Things About Me

1. I am known as the Nail Queen at work

2. "Work" is at a hospital as an x-ray tech
3. My commute is 45 minutes each way (ouch)
4. Though mt cat's name is Tifa, we rarely call her that.  It's usually some variation of a word that rhymes with Tifa (Teef, Meef, Bifa, Teefy, Sef, Bef, Tef, Beefy)
5. She responds to all of them, and act like a dog
6. I get really sad if a design doesn't turn out right on my nails
7. I have curly hair (and I hate it)
8. I read books very fast 
9. I hate Winter and anything that has to do with it (skiing anyone? nope)

11. I'm a nerd (I like anime, video games, etc.)
