Very Cool Stuff Here!!  

Posted in ,

I was fortunate enough to receive this very cool award from Kristy at This Train of Thought has been Derailed

If you follow me, then I'm pretty sure you are following her...In case you aren't...Immediately stop reading this and go over there (you can always come back here). She is a tremendous writer, and you will see that it's very easy to visualize all that she blogs about. One day she will be a published author and I will be able to say.."Oh yeah I've been following her blog for ages."

So as there are rules (ugh rules). I'm obligated to sorta follow them :)

10 things that make me happy..hmmmm

1. My kids. Nothing can brighten up my day, like going to get my kids at their after school activities. Granted the first 10 minutes are loud, and very unorganized to the untrained ear, but to me it's a symphony. I never realized that somebody else could cause that much happiness and I get to multiply that by 3. :)

2. Reading. Louis L'Amour is just awesome. I read many other authors, but I'm sure that on any given day I have at least one of his books opened and being read (i love my bookmarks)

3. Online Gaming... I'm a closet nerd. I love video games online and play them very regularly. I enjoy the conversation as much as the gaming. These gaming friends are an extension of my life. I don't get to see them, but if I don't talk to them for a couple days, I'M GRUMPY!

4. Movies.... I love my movies. I'm a big Sci-Fi (not SyFy) fan. Independence Day being up there around the top. I watch at least 3 or 4 movies a week. We have a pretty big dvd collection and NetFlix is just awesome.

5. Winter Nights...I love cold dark winter nights. I love sitting out on the patio with a hot cup of coffee and watching the lightning stretching across the sky. It's amazing to me that something that beautiful is so deadly. When I retire I think I'll end up being one of those crazy stormchasers.

6. Talk Radio...I'm a talk radio freak. Not for the same reason as many people. I am very strong in my political beliefs, but I don't listen so much for the political side of things. I love to listen so that I can then turn on the TV and see how the other side will respond. It's a big game, and if they think we are too stupid to realize that then they are truly clueless.

7. Baseball...Not watching it, playing it. It was my first true love. I enjoyed it for many many years as a youngster, and then as an oldster playing softball. I've recently been forced into a semi-retirement from it due to that nagging arm injury I mentioned.

8. NFL...I can't wait for football season to start. I'm a Cowboy fan, but I just love a good football game. The fact that there are people that big, with that much natural athletic ability is mind boggling to me.

9. Telemarketers...These guys give me an endless amount of entertainment. I often let them get through there whole routine, before I start asking a ton of questions about their product, and warranty options. Do I get a discount if I reccommend people for the product? It's just too much fun sometimes..(I know I'm weird)

10. Staying up LATE!!! I'm a nightowl...I have always been a nightowl...But I used to get tired around 1 or 2 in the morning. But thanks to Guillain Barre (I blogged once about it). That's not a problem anymore. I decided that instead of getting grumpy about staying up late, I'm gonna try napping during the day and then my sleep totals are good enough :)

I'm gonna pull an Ian and pass this on to people over the next couple days ( I like to modify the rules..)

Today I will offer you this young man...

I have given him an award once before, and I believe he is defnitely worth checking out...He makes me think twice every time I read his posts...He is still fairly new to the blogging world. Invidus Voice is a fun read. I have to say that while I don't understand poetry very well, he has some that has actually hit home and I can relate to (Yay Me!!!).... Check him out...

Storm chasing... fun! I'm a nightowl too. If I didn't have a job I'd be up until 4 am, go to bed, then get up around 9:30 am... But I do have a job... which in this economy is a good thing, so I'll stop whining.

Going to check out the newbie...

Congratulations on the award. It is not your average run of the mill award - not so generic. I have never seen that one before. You are an excellent writer and very deserving of it. Your blog is a nice read and very entertaining. Love your list about yourself. I can identify with several of them.
