For Funsies

My last two posts have been more serious than my usual posts, and apparently some people got bored. Sorry to see you go fleeing followers, but thanks to anybody whose eyes didn't glaze over-I promise I'll be doing more fun stuff fore a while now if not just because I'm all seriousness'd out.

Today's a good fun post-I got the Beautiful Blogger Award from my friend Mrs. Rotty of Sometimes and Always and we all know that nothing says fun like an award meme! Okay, so I am also amused by shiny objects, but award memes are still awesome. Thank you so much Mrs. Rotty for making my day bright!

The rules of this award are pretty simple:

  • Thank the person(s) who nominated you and link their blog.
  • Copy the award and paste it.
  • Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
  • Nominate 7 bloggers that you love and link to their blogs.

So, without further ado-7 fun facts (woo!):

  • I sing. A lot. Randomly. I have been known to burst into song in the middle of someone else'ssentence because they happen to speak a song lyric unintentionally. I wake Hubby up by singing my own lyrics to songs, changing the message to something along the lines of "you have to wake up now because it's time for work". I even sing how to's-we have a song to remind the kids to use inside voices, to remind them to wash their hands, to help them remember how to bathe themselves...just singing all the time. It's an illness really.

  • Even though I'm not quite 25, I have enough gray hair that I have to color it. Hubby says it isn't noticeable, and that even if it were (which of course it's not, right?) that I should just let it go au naturale because natural is beautiful, even if it's gray. Isn't he precious LoL.

  • I have never been, nor do I ever intend to be, on an airplane. People always tell me that I'm more likely to die in a car than in an airplane, but what they don't tell realize is that is only because people are in an airplanes less often. If a person rode in an airplane as often as they rode/drove in cars they would be more likely to be in an accident while in the air and, what's more, plane accidents are statistically far more fatal than auto accidents. Bottom line-I'm taking Amtrak.

  • Despite the fact that I very rarely drink I am, in fact, an expensive drunk. The first time I actually did get drunk it took six shots, four mai tais, six hard lemonades, and four beers before I was officially wasted. So I'm like alcohol-proof (it's a secret super power).

  • My family thinks I'm a hippie-true story. Yeah, they don't know me very well.

  • I started dating Hubby when I was 16, and he is the only serious boyfriend I've ever had. We met while singing karaoke (post forthcoming!) and we'll celebrate our fifty year anniversary in 2052-I'll be 66 and he'll be 69.

  • I have a really weird thing about animal names-I feel that I must name them something that is either super pretentious or ironic. It's probably because my parents always named our animals something boring-Goldie the goldfish, Harley the dog, Kitty the when the kids grow up (and become more resilient/less likely to torture animals) our animals names are going to be awesome. Our future cat-regardless of gender-is going to be named Princess Pepperdoodle Von Yum Yum the Third (even though they'll be the first) and our future dog is going to be a tea cup Yorkie named William Wallace. And I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Seriously, I'm dorking out over it already!
So there you have it-randomocity about me. Thank you again, Mrs. Rotty! Let's see, I think this time I would like to nominate:

The Crazy Baby Mama
Samantha of Apple Juice and Milk
Mama Kat of Mama's Losin' It
Amber of aefilkins
Helene of I'm Living Proof God Has a Sense of Humor
K of Interstitial Life
Lesley of Project Mommyhood

because (a) these ladies are all wicked awesome and (b) according to my internet history, they are the last seven blogs that I visited...and I really, really hate feeling like I have to pick 'favorites'. So I guess in that spirit, if you want it and I didn't name you take it and enjoy!

There's a lot of singing in our family, too. We make up songs all of the time.

Congrats on the award!

Congrats on the award AND on being a spontaneous singer! I think it's the healthy way to live!
