Yep, It's Definitely Awards Season

Thank you, ChristaCarol, for this spiffy-looking award. My mission, if I choose to accept it, is to tell you five fun things about myself. I’ll let you decide if I succeeded:)

1. All right, I admit it: I’m just another huge LOST fan. A friend recommended the series to us a year or two ago, so we borrowed Season One from the library and have been faithful devotees ever since. (Except to Season Three, which was positively dreadful. Honestly, if you decide to give it a go, let me know when you get to Season Three and I’ll just give you the highlights--which will amount to about three sentences of plot description--so you can skip the whole darn thing.)

2. I’m an even bigger college football fan. I can spend an entire fall Saturday, from nine in the morning until ten o’clock at night, flipping back and forth between college football games--because they all affect my team somehow. I can even outlast Honey Bear, who usually abandons me sometime around the second quarter of the second set of games.

3. I took a social dance class in high school, so I can swing/waltz/foxtrot/cha-cha about as well as your average DANCING WITH THE STARS celeb:)

4. I was going to be a world-class volleyball player, until those pesky junior high coaches all but murdered my career back in the ninth grade. (Five-foot-two, apparently, isn’t tall enough to be a world-class volleyball player.)

5. And on the topic of world-class talent, I could very well be the next grand master of Minesweeper. Although I haven’t played in months, my current best time is 96 seconds on the advanced board.

I also need to pass this award on to a few other bloggers, so here are my picks:

bclement412 of Abyss
Empty Refrigerator of Empty Refrigerator
lora96 of LitDiva
Myrna Foster of Night Writer

How fun-tastic!

Thanks, Krista!

If I ever get around to watching Lost, I'll take you up on your offer.

Aw thank you so much! I've always wanted to see Lost, just never got around to it. Maybe I'll order season 1 from netflix today... =D

Thanks again!

Congrats on your cool looking award!

I was never good at volleyball. Sure I had the height, but my arms always looked as though I was a victim of abuse. Not cool! Plus, I was a lousy at it. Obviously!

Myrna and Bailey, you are very welcome.

Stina, thanks. And maybe the two of us, working together in some Trekish mind/body meld sort of way, could be a world-class volleyball player - or at least a semi-decent tall one:) (By the way, do you pronounce your name St-eye-na or St-ee-na?)

I'd love to be able to do all that dancing! How fun! Great stuff. ;)
