Blog Award

I have been awarded! Oh my! 


These are the RULES! (Rules are simply made to be broken...Just saying.)
1. You must post eleven facts about yourself.
2. You must also answer the eleven questions the awarder has given you and make up eleven questions for your awardees to answer in turn.
3. Tag eleven fellow bloggers
4. Notify them that you've awarded them
5. No tagging back
6. And the eleven blogs you tag must have less than 200 followers.

Lucky me, I was awarded by two other bloggers.

So I will answer half of Treskie's questions and Half of Kimberly's. That seems fair. And let's face it, 22 quesstions would take me forever. *Grin.* 

Without further ado, Eleven Facts about Myself. *Ahem* Right.

1.) I did martial arts -Aikido- for almost a year and succeeded in getting my first belt before circumstances and life in general sort of got in the way of this pursuit. (Plus, it was a non-violent martial art, which is all well and good, but I likes a little bit of violence in my fighting. *Bats eyelashes innocently*.
2.) I can drive a stick-shift. Go me. :)
3.) I love 'Old Time Radio Shows.' Richard Diamond, Private Detective is my favorite. 

4.) I really like gummy bears.  (I really like skittles too, but I get a sugar high almost immediately...even on ONE skittle. A sugar-highed me is a little overwhelming for the general public. My family included. :)
5.) I have a burning ambition to learn how to pick locks. My own and anybody elses. *Mrhrhrhrhr.*
6.) I am a devoted fan of Pixar movies. The have some of the best stories ever. *Raise your hand if you wept buckets over UP.)
7.) I intend to dig an escape tunnel from the attic to Freedom! (Brownie points to anyone who knows what I'm talking about here. )
8.) My tree-climbing skills were the envy of every boy in my neighborhood. And my bow making skills. And my cape. I was pretty awesome.
9.) I would love to learn, hands on, much more about cars. So. when I own my own car, I will be Prepared.  This book is actually very very cool for that.
10.) I haunt the singing classes at the local community college. Singing is my favorite thing in the whole wide world and I am the most inspired by music. (You might have already know that, but hey!)
11.) One of my singing goals is to learn this song. It is awesome. I'm not saying that I want to be an Opera singer. I'm just saying I want to be that good. Ya know. I want to be able to say, "Oh yeah. I can sing an aria. No problem. LOL.

Okay, now for some of Treskie's questions. 
1.) Who's your favorite musician and why?
Oh..that's kinda hard actually. But I'm going to go with James Galway. Nobody plays the flute like that man does. It's awesome! Take this version of Pachabel's Cannon for example. 


2.) Do you think the Beatles overrated?
Yeaaaaah...they were okay. There are a few songs that they do that I kinda like. But I mostly don't like them.  And their later stuff was not so good. At all.
3.)Did you ever want to be a Ginger?
I admit Yes. I did. Red hair is super pretty! I like the dark, brownish-red but not really the blondish-red.
4.) QUICK! PICK A NUMBER BETWEEN ONE AND TEN! Why did you pick that number? Why? WHY?
 Ten. It's such a nice, round, even number. (I've been watching too many episodes of Monk.)
5.) How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Well, it depends on three factors.
~The woodchuck's desire to chuck said wood.
~The woodchuck's need to chuck the aforementioned wood.
~The woodchuck's ability to chuck the wood when it's a wood chuck.
6.) The started the American Navy?
John Paul Jones! "I have not yet begun to fight!" (How cool is that? Yes, I'm a bit of a history freak.)

And now I'll do 6-11 of Kimberly's.

6.) How do you prefer your eggs cooked.
I like my eggs poached.Like Julia Child did it.
7.) Have you ever heard of the Weston A. Prince Foundation? I'm not gonna lie. :)
8.) Tea or Coffee?
And I say, "Is it too much to ask for both?" I like coffee in the morning and tea at night.
9.) Mild chocolate or dark chocolate?
DARK! Dark, dark, dark! Soooo dark.
10.) Have you ever gotten lost and called it an adventure?
Lost? ME? Well...yes. And I've called it many things. *Grin.* Depending on which 'lost' occasion we're talking about, some of them have been titled adventures. Most of them were simply called inconveniences.
11.) How do you feel about frogs?
That depends entirely on the frog.

There you have it. I hope you enjoyed that.
Now if you recall, I said that the Rules were made to be broken. I said that because I simply don't have anyone, let alone eleven anyones to tag. I do apologize. That's what happens when several of your sisters have blogs too and beat you to the whole tag thing. *Nods knowingly.* 

Again, thank you two for awarding me!
God Bless


  1. Yay for blog awards! Sometimes the questions get overwhelming, don't they? (Oh, and psssst... I think you meant MARTIAL arts, not MARITAL arts. The second one is a bit... er... odd.)

  2. Yay for you!!!! I loved your answers. Mean sisters. They should have left you a COUPLE followers to tag :) So wait... HOW much wood can a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? **Thinks** OH YES! 42! that's the answer. 42.

    God Bless

  3. Oh, thank you Kimberly. :)

    Cat! Do you always have to point out type-os? *hurries to fix 'Martial'*
