The Liebster Award – Thank you!
I got nominated for the Liebster blog award! Thanks to http://ambrozya.wordpress.com/ I had never heard of the award, which is, ironically, for blogs with under 200 followers. It’s meant to give newbie/unknown bloggers some attention.
I’ll take it 🙂
The RULES of the award:
Prior to any rule: accept the award, post the picture of the Liebster Award on the top of post, say who nominated you for the award and link their blog site.
1. List 11 random facts about you.
2. Nominate 11 other bloggers for the Liebster Award and link their blog sites.
3. Notify the bloggers of their award.
4. Ask the award winners 11 questions to answer when they accept their Liebster Award
11 random facts about me
1.) I once worked crew (teardown) for a Paul McCartney show. Rolled his mic cables. At the time I did not care for the Beatles, but now I love them and wish I had paid more attention to the concert.
2.) I am a secret GI Joe fan. Not really a huge comic reader overall, but GI Joe has been a guilty pleasure of mine since childhood.
3.) Strong mints make me sneeze. Every time.
4.) I’m completely addicted to the Wii Just Dance games. I have all of them. It’s my favorite workout.
5.) I love tomatoes, but can’t stomach tomato juice or soup.
6.) I grew up riding horses and trained for dressage under an Olympian rider and his staff.
7.) I am normally a mellow/chilled out/social type of drinker, but one night I got really wasted and started ranting/crying about the 300 Spartans that died at Thermopylatae. I am NEVER EVER Drunk Crying Girl or Wasted Stupid Girl but for whatever reason, that night I was. This happened several years before the 300 movie came out, which makes it even more random, lol.
8.) I was first published in second grade, in a compilation for young Maine authors. Unicorn story.
9.) I consider black metal fine art
10.) I am terrified of cracked mud and high ceilings. This has something to do with the convent/nursing home my grandmother was in in New Brunswick. Not sure why, because nothing bad ever happened to me there. But if I see cathedral ceilings or dry mud I get the heebs.
11.) I can watch slasher flicks and be fine but show me two seconds of an actual surgery show and I am completely squicked out.
Ok, so now it’s time to pay it forward. Linking to 11 other blogs. Some of you I know better than others, some of you I know from livejournal, some of you I don’t know at all. But you’re all interesting 🙂
