Yes, this is really happening


I never do things like these. I know everyone always says that, but I really don't. I typically read them on other people's blogs, think I will never be cool enough for anyone to actually talk about ME on one of these, and move on.

HOLY CRAP I AM COOL ENOUGH.

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Copy the award and paste it in your blog
3. Link to whoever nominated you
4. Share 7 interesting things about you
5. Nominate 7 other beautiful bloggers

So, I guess here we go.

I don't remember why I started reading Bradshaw's blog. I quickly found out she was from my home town, liked sports, drank, and lived on sarcasm. That is pretty much all I require out of a friend. So, I stalked her, made a few random comments, then she commented on my blog, I squealed, and I have been watching her from afar ever since. I mean reading...reading her blog...from Ohio. Right. She also started following me on Twitter and it took me an eternity to figure out who she was. I had the dumb that day. I say "OH MY GOD ME TOO" almost every time I read her blog and will one day find her and force her to drink with me on a trip home. Thank you for making me feel legit and, you know, for being awesome in general.

Seven interesting things, huh?

1. I am extremely OCD with numbers. Things either have to be even or multiples of five, especially volumes on TV's and stereos. I count things off a lot too. I may need medication.

2. I am obsessed with serial killers. I wanted to be a criminal psychologist, but almost every job required that I carry a gun, which I am adamantly against, so I never pursued the degree. In fact, I am watching Criminal Minds as I type this and keep getting distracted and having to start over.

3. If I ever won the lottery, I would start an animal sanctuary where stray animals could live without the worry of existing only in a cage. I would hire my dad to run it. I would open my own restaurant.

4. I play cheesy computer games. Constantly. I have a yearly membership to Shockwave.com and am obsessed with all Tycoon games. Also, The Sims. I have gone several days without sleeping when new games come out.

5. I have a birthmark on the top of my head and all the hair that grows out of it is blond. The rest of my hair is medium brown. Hair dressers constantly assume that I got really bad high lights.

6. I get motion sick and abhor flying. I would love to see the world, but could never stand the plane rides to do it.

7. I would eat my body weight in black licorice. I know most people hate it, but I absolutely love it. Love. It.

OK, my fellow bloggers.

1. Okay Seriously. Her shenanigans never cease to keep me laughing. And shenanigans is the ONLY word to describe it. The crazy stories she tells, whether injuring herself or taking a train ride that ended in a career as an elf, never disappoint.

2. Brutalism. She is one of the first people who started reading my blog that I didn't know personally. I almost peed myself. Twice. Every single time I read her blog, I just want to sit in my living room and drink wine with her.

3. One Plus Two. This woman is not just brave. She has some serious mother fucking balls. I admire her so much for her tenacity and unwavering beliefs. She is a good person in every sense of the word.

4. Violence Unsilenced. I know that this is not one person's blog and I know that it probably shouldn't qualify here, but this blog has given women so much strength and a voice that often went unheard before. That is the epitome of beautiful.

5. Zombie Fights Shark. He took a brief hiatus where I sat in the closet and rocked back and forth and cried. He is outrageously hilarious and vulgar and offends me every time he posts in a way I can't stop loving. He also kills hookers, which in it's own way, is beautiful.

6. Soliloquy of Whimsy. He is a brand new blogger and only has a few posts, but I expect great things of him. Also, if you are offended by "the gay" I would not read his blog. It doesn't get much gayer than this, kids. He is singing that Christina Aguilera song while reading this. I would bet my life on it.

7. Strange, Dark Gypsy Girl. She has been missing as of late, claiming a lack of inspiration. I get it, I so do. I refuse to remove her from my reader, in hopes that she will come back. I miss her hilarious interpretations of my word verifications. Sigh.

THAT WAS THE HARDEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE. OK, it probably wasn't. But, seriously, you guys, it was a lot of work.

To be fair, I was singing "The Wizard and I" from Wicked.

Bradshaw said...

Wait, you mean the Christina Aguilera song that was my latest title? Because that is awesome.

Also, find me. I dare you. And if we ever shared jelly beans, I'd give you all the black ones. Swears.

Man remember when Steph and I volunteered to be elves? Awesome.

Thanks, Erratic! You're so sweet! However, this post could use some A Jew. Holy Crap I laughed my ass off at that. LMAO? Is that the correct abbreviation? IDKAAPT (I don't know anything about proper texting).
