Awards are very nice, who doesn't love a bit of recognition now and again. Though to be honest, they make me a bit anxious too.
I was originally honored with this award by Mr. Absinthe Passion, he is a truly beautiful soul who's blog I love. He's open and honest and generous enough to share his adventures with us. He also leaves wonderfully insightful and supportive comments. He rarely fails to make me smile and often, I laugh out loud at his wit.
I was also nominated by Renee Rose who in addition to having a lovely lyrical name, knows a lot about Unicorns. I had no idea there was any kind of sexual connotation associated with Unicorns. It was quite the education for me, and I'm starting to see one of my tat's a bit differently now, lol.
I also received a nomination from Mrs. Soft Bottom, she says she's been reading my blog from the begining of her journey into this lifestyle. It still surprises me that anyone reads or enjoys my writing, but it sure does stroke my ego. Anyone who wears two different shoes to work and doesn't notice for 3 hours because of mindblowing morning sex is my kinda lady.
Now, according to the rules I have to tell y'all some things about myself. I'm not too sure there are 10 things left you don't know about me that you might find interesting, but I'll give it a try.
I started collecting lingerie long before I graduated from high school. At one time I had a drawer full of teddies, garter belts and sexy bras. I have long since lost interest in them and no longer have any. I lost interest in them because I spent more time getting into them then they spent on.
I twirled a rifle in the marching band when I was in highschool. I was pretty darn good at it too, except for the time I didn't catch it and took out the entire drum line's shins with my errant rifle. The director thought it best to rewrite the routine after that.
My very first real job, at age 14, included the line, would you like fries with that? I lied about my age to get that job, they weren't as strict back then about working papers as they are now.
I detest ants and even though I profess to be an animal lover, they don't count in my book. I could happily live without them.
I rarely ever blush, but Musicman can still reduce me to a giggling, stammering teenager without much provocation.
If they ever perfect time travel, I'm going back to Woodstock. I missed it by a few years and have always wanted to experience it. And, I love tie die.
I'm not in any way sexually attracted to women, but I sometime wish I was. Musicman has said for years he would like to see me with another woman. I won't say that will never change, but I'm not gonna hold my breath either.
If I could have any pets I wanted, I would have a Great Dane and a Chihuahua. I love the contrast.
I was not the type of little girl that played with dolls. I did however have an awesome Hot Wheels collection. I used my Lincoln Logs to build elaborate cities to drive them in.
I constantly question who has the right to define normal.
Okay, that's ten things you may not have known about me. Now on to the last part. I'm supposed to nominate other Bloggers I love. This is the part that always makes me anxious and the part I never do. I can't name any bloggers I love. I love them all or they wouldn't be in my blogroll.
For me, reading blogs is like visiting with friends. Y'all are kind enough to give me a window into your lives. You let me peak inside and share your adventures, triumphs and tragedies. I laugh with you, I cry with you and often I learn from you.
You have embraced me as one of you and given me a place where I don't have to keep secrets anymore. You celebrate with me when things are going well. You support and encourage me when things aren't going so well. You give me great advice when I'm confused and overthinking every little thing. You encourage me when I doubt myself and my choices.
I love you all and have benefitted in some way from everyone on my blog roll, whether you know it or not. That is why, as much as I love the recognition of the awards, I can't name anyone. I name you all.
