Well, sweep the unpaid bills, open files, tax receipts, and cocktail glasses off my desk and muddle through all of that nonsense later...cause right now I have a BLOG AWARD to acknowledge!!
Actually, I had this two days ago, but couldn't get onto my poor neglected blog right then because of all of the above mentioned distractions. Except for the cocktail glasses. Really, I don't have any of those littering my desk. Well, not right now.
ANYwho, a big Tanks to Aussie Lori for bestowing this upon 'lil ole me. It's the Honest Scrap Award, which means I get to write a list of ten random, interesting things you didn't know about me! Yay! I can't wait to get started! This will be fun! Here I go...Starting now....ten...interesting.....random......interesting....Ummm, can I get back to you?
Ok, I'll give this a try:
Random Fact #1: My junior high school was adjacent to a golf course. (No, that's not all) While walking in the outdoor quad area, between classes, I got hit square in the chin with a golf ball. You couldn't even see the golf course from where I was walking. What? It's RANDOM - what are the odds??
Random Fact #2: When I was 10, my mom, myself and 4 other kids narrowly escaped a car fire in the middle of the night on a winding road very far from home. A kind trucker came to our rescue.
Random fact #3: I'm afraid of cockroaches. I once dreamed a giant one forced me to dance with it. I swear I'm not making that up.
Random fact #4: I'm terrible with directions. I can go to the same place on a weekly basis and still get lost. I blame it on my elementary school teachers who made me stop writing with my left hand. It confused me.
Random fact #5: I would love to downsize and live in an RV and travel the country and blog about it. I just have to get my husband on board. Literally. Cause I've never driven an RV.
Random fact #6: I can't stand hairbrushes lying around anywhere other than a bathroom. All that unattached hair....It's just gross.
Random fact #7: I like to play Sims. If you don't know what that is, it's a computer game of virtual little families and towns that you can create and control. I started with Sims, then came Sims2 and now
Sims3. When my real world is a little too real for me, I retreat to Sim world. Although since I discovered blog world, I haven't been playing as much.
Random fact #8: My husband was in a rock band in the 80's. In so many ways we are complete opposites, and yet are similar souls. I'm lucky to have found him.
Random fact #9: The first concert I ever went to was the Osmonds. See number 8 above.
And last - THE #10 RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME IS....*drumroll*
I completely freeze up in front of a camera or microphone.
There. I hope that wasn't too painful to read.
