I've decided to take a quick commercial break from my journey to accept this award nominated to me by the lovely Sarah Elle Emm. I wanted to go ahead and do this mainly for three reasons.
1. Sarah Elle is so cool.
2. This pie looks mmm mmm delicious,
3. Duh, who doesn't like awards!
After reviewing the info on her site, these are the rules of acceptance..
So, Here goes nothing:
I use both hands for just about everything but often one or the other for different things. I mostly eat with my left,. I write with my right so the paper doesn't curl, but I sometimes draw with my left.. etc etc. I dunno I'm weird.
1. I'm ambidextrous
1. I'm ambidextrous
2. Before I became a drifter, I was destined to be a programmer.
Yep that's right, before I started breaking laws I was cracking code. I was a super genius. Now, I'm super dumb :) I wrote my first computer program when I was about 10 years old on one of the earliest personal computers.. The commodore 64 .. which back then was cutting edge technology (oh, how times have changed) and still holds the record for best selling PC of all time. It took me about a hundred lines of code just to make a friggin' ball bounce (and it wasn't even round). Me in a nutshell..extremely introverted, very quiet, never outdoors.. now I am the complete opposite. It's funny how life can pull a 180 on you. Nerd turned Rebel Without A Cause.. who knew.
3. My favorite cartoon was The Thundercats.
If you don't know who they are then yes you have been deprived. Only the most awesome cartoon ever made. Cheetara was one sexy feline, but even though she had all of that going for her she is still the runner-up, because everybody knows that Panthro was the man. The best of both worlds.. smart AND strong. Not only did he build the Thundercat Lair AND the Thunder Tank, but he had a cool pair of nunchucks and knew how to use them. Panthro kicks ass. Thundercats! hooooOOOOOO!!
4. Part of my childhood, I grew up in a junkyard..
..that also doubled as a pig farm which, if you can imagine, was quite renown throughout the neighborhood for it's harsh odors. To say I grew up poor is an understatement. Quite a humbling experience living crowded in a small camper surrounded by loads of worthless crap. Believe it or not you learn a lot on a junkyard. These were the days of high adventure. Very interesting times to say the least.
5. I have a HUGE ponytail fetish.
I have no idea why but they turn me into putty. Yet, for some reason women don't like to wear them. They always say it makes them look too plain or something. That's too bad because I think they look great. Something about that whip action.. oh yeah..
6. For a brief period I was home-schooled.
Whether this made me smarter or stupider who knows. All I know is I got to show up to class in my jammies.
Hey now, I can't reveal all of my secrets. Gotta leave SOMETHIN' to the imagination. Besides, I can't really think of anything else that doesn't involve some sort of incriminating evidence so I think I will quit while I'm ahead. I mean jeez, seven whole facts, that's a lot. I feel like I just got off of the couch at the shrink's office or something. Anyway,..
O.T. is an incredibly gifted writer with a beautiful mind. She has a wonderful talent for deep thoughts and introspection and has always been a huge encouragement to me even through the bad times. No one could ask for a better blogger friend. Simply put, she has stolen my heart.
Katrina has a great blog cataloging her journey in one of the most difficult battles anyone can face.. the battle of The Self, which in my opinion she does quite elegantly. It takes guts to take a good long look in the mirror and decide you want to fight the demons that are holding you back in life. Her journey to achieve balance is a noteworthy cause. There is no doubt in my mind that she will win this bout with a TKO (Rocky Theme: da-daa-DAAAAAA)
I would like to once again thank Sarah Elle for this nomination, you can find her at her lovely blog..
When you get the chance, swing by their sites and if possible drop a comment. Bloggers LOVE comments. They are like tiny little morsels of joy that brighten the day..
..and last but certainly not least I would of course like to thank my fans.. all 10 of you :) You could have been on any blog in the world but instead you're here with me. I appreciate that.
mwah! I love you all! *kisses trophy* mwah! *waves*
Okay then.. back to my journey :)
