I am Inspirational, a Great Comment-er and Versatile :)


A while back WilyBCool gave me the Inspirational Blog Award. And I am just now getting around to passing the award along.

The rules are simple, answer the following question - and then pass the award along. So get ready to learn a little more about me.

1. What makes you laugh, smile or giggle?
Um... a lot of things. One of the lessons I have learned in life is not to take myself too seriously. So I laugh at myself a lot. And since I am a computer programmer - this video makes me laugh a lot :)

2. What are your dreams for the future?
Writing mostly. I want to let writing be a bigger part of my life and finish novels faster.

3. If you were going on a cruise where would it be and why?
To a remote island where there is not another living soul except for my husband and I. Because I want to be a hermit :)

4. Who would you spend your vacation with and why?
My husband because he is my husband, partner in life, and best friend.

5. If given a life, what life would you chose and why? Past or future?
My life.

I would like to give this award to the following four bloggers because they inspire me:

Lynn(e) at The Submission Process
Nicole at Write Me A World
Elana Johnson
Sarah at Empty White Pages

Great Comment-er

And then, after scheduling this post, to my great pleasure - Lynn(e) at The Submission Process gave me the Great Commenter Award!

Getting these two awards makes me feel so happy - especially since I have had a rough couple of weeks and have been feeling dejected. It is great to receive bloggerly love from my bloggerly friends.

And now for my favorite part - here are my top 4 comment-ers who deserve this award just as much (if not more!) then me :)

Krista M at The Jelly Beans of Writing
WilyBeCool at To Move Forward Live
Cherie Reich
Christine Rains


And then... again before this post got out - the amazing Lillie McFerrin gave me the Versatile Blogger award. Sigh, so much bloggerly love!

Here are the rules:
1. In a post on your, blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
2. In the same post, Add the Versatile Blogger Award.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

Seven Random Facts
1. I love peanut butter.
2. I only attended high school part time.
3. I can't stand touching those like holographic things. The ripply texture sends a chill through me.
4. I am VERY ticklish.
5. I hated sushi until about 6 months ago. Now I love it.
6. I sooooo want to buy and play Skyrim.
7. I am addicted to Cake Mania.

Again, I am going to cheat and only pass this on to 4 people :)
