The Awards Just Keep Coming

Last week was quite a busy week as far as awards go! Yes dear readers, I was awarded not one, but two awards for my blog. You can't imagine how flattered I am. I want to send a big thank you to Jai Joshi over at Jai Joshi's Tulsi Tree. She is an amazing writer and her blog has been one of my favorites for many months now. Stop on over there and check it out!

And because I seem to be the most interesting person in the world, *cough* I must now think of another ten things to reveal about myself. Believe me readers, you don't really want to know any more about me, but I'm certainly not one to break with tradition.

1. I'm a huge procrastinator who thrives on deadlines.

2. I've been thinking about writing a memoir about my time in the U.S. Army. I was a 107 lb pipsqueek. Trust me, it would be funny.

3. I'm a double spacer. Yes, I said it and I'm proud of it. Good luck to anyone in trying to teach my thumb to not hit the space bar twice after a sentence!

4. I grew up in a very small town in WNY with a student class size of about 97. I still only live about 15 minutes away from that very town today.

5. I learned the very hard way that when someone asks you if you can type you should reply with an emphatic NO!

6. I prefer writing male characters, and when I do have a female lead, she's usually surrounded by men.

7. I have a sick love for the smell of gunpowder. It was my time in the Army, I swear.

8. I've fired a 50 cal. and it was awesome!

9. I may have a violent streak. But I'm so cute. :) Teehee!

10. My favorite musical instrument is the bagpipe.

And the award goes to...!

Abigail at Enigma Inklings

Justine Dell at her blog of the same name

And there are a couple others that I would have given the award to, but I didn't know if the guys would like be called sugar dolls. :o

So, I'll just give their blog names. They don't actually have to claim the award if they don't want to.

Congratulations to everyone! Do check out these blogs; they're really great.

Awesome stuff right there.


  1. Thankya kindly. Me loves awards, me does. I left a bit of recongition to you on Sunday in my blog. Don't feel obligated to repeat it. It's the Love Link one.

  2. I am loving this award! Too fun! Not to mention I get to learn a ton about you as well!!!

    I came from Des Moines, IA, which is a lot smaller than Houston where I live now, but my husband grew up in a town much like yours, he graduated with 70 people, and his sister just 4 years ago graduated with a total of 30!!! It's crazy to imagine. Total population - 251... guess I never realized what little was until I visited!

  3. Christi, thank you very much! I'm just becoming a very popular person apparently. *bats eyelashes*

  4. Hehehe, Jen. I'm a very interesting person. Did you buy that? No? Oh drat! :)

    Small towns are nice in a way, though I must admit that my town was quite a bit larger than your husband's. I can't imagine what that must have been like!

  5. Interesting is my favorite kind of person!!! It is a very interesting experience, when I first visited everyone would wave, but you could also tell that in town people were keeping a lot of secrets from one another. It's a very "my family is better than you family" type of atmosphere! I must say that I am glad to have met my husband because the town is perfect for one of my novels! Everything works out it seems!


Yay! Comments! Oh, how I do love them! :D
