Life Is Good!

Life is good Award given by Amber La Shell

Hey y'all, guess what???  I got another award!!!  It's from Amber La Shell at Amber La Shell Rants if you know her already you know how super freaking cool she is and if you haven't then you definitely should go see her.  Thank you, thank you and thank you Amber!!!!  

There are rules associated with the award however.  I have to thank and link back to the giver of the award which I've done but just in case...Thank you Amber you are amazing and awesome!!

Then I answer the survey questions, (that part is coming up) and then pass it along.  I don't suppose the order matters much so I'm going to pass it on before answering the questions.  

First I want to give this blog to Oilfield Trash at Make Daddy a Sammich
Also I need to give it to Bruce and/or his evil twin at Bruce Johnson JADIP or Here  
Mrs Hyde and/or the zen bitch at A Bitch Called Mom or The Well Fed Spirit (is it cheating to award to multiple personality bloggers?)
And finally to Hed at Hed Above water

Now for the questions:

1) 1.  If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this?  If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now? I do blog anonymously as i have issues with being authentic in my 3D world and I'm working on those.  The blog allows me to be completely honest about what I think and fear without concern about judgements or reprisals.  

2)Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
It is my instinct to tell you I'm not stubborn, but in consulting with the Darling Husband he assures me that I am stubborn in the most passive-aggressive, non-confrontational way possible.  

3)What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
I try not to spend too much time looking in mirrors.  It troubles me.  I am middle aged, red haired, blue eyes w/blonde eyelashes and eyebrows,  completely average, overweight (no, fluffy...that's what I am, fluffy).  I rarely wear makeup since I work from home and more often than not my hair, which is long and fine, is up in a top knot or ponytail.  Plain.  That's what I see. 

4) What is your favourite summer cold drink?
I know you aren't seriously asking me that and with crystal light (fruit punch and lemonade) lots of ice, all crushed up together in the blender to make a lovely frozen treat. 

5)When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Working from home isn't as glamourous as I had expected it to be.  However, when I have time for myself I spend it seducing Darling Husband as often as possible.  Aside from that, when I find time here or there, I blog if I'm inspired, read if I'm not. Sometimes I even nap...just because. 

6) Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life?
Of course.  There will always be things that I still want to accomplish.  It seems like every time I manage to cross something off my proverbial bucket list I add two more.  It's a never ending pursuit of new experiences because when I'm an old lady I want to have a head and heart full of things that I've done, not just a house full of 'things'.

7)When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
Never ever skipped school.  Well there was that one time, but it shouldn't count because I just went to a different school for the day to see my old drama teacher.  School is school is school, right?  As for how I would be classified.  I was a thesbian, but when I wasn't on stage I was painfully shy.  Talk about your paradoxes.  

8) If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
When I close my eyes and think of a poignant experience in my life.  I see the foyer of the little public notary's place where I married Darling Husband.  I spent so much of my life to that point not knowing if I would ever have him....I remember looking into his eyes and choking up to the point that I couldn't say my vows because I was crying for happiness. 

9) Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?
I have no problem sharing about myself because it's what I know.  I like to talk about odd or funny things that I see and hear and think about.  You guys get the best and most honest parts of me because my blog is anonymous.  

10)  If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
That answer is simple.  It depends on who is on the other end of the phone and what book I have to read.  

I'll be visiting my award winners soon.  I hope you all enjoy my answers.  I think I may have big news coming up in a blog soon!!!!

  15. Congrats on getting the award.

    And thank you for giving me the award.

    I tried to post this the other day, but my laptop crashed and the post got lost.

    Thank you again for the award.

  16. You can earn $20 for a 20 minute survey!

    Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So large companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, like myself, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.
