Well, this is splendid timing. I’ve been bestowed the
Huzzah! I guess I’m kind of versatile…in a way…but, judging by how quickly I got agitated at juggling music AND writing in this blog and decided to split them into two, kind of defeats the meaning…but I’LL TAKE IT. Apparently, upon getting such an award from another blogger, the award winner also is granted a great deal of responsibility. There are steps to be taken. Which I will take. Now.
Step 1: Thank and link the person that nominated you.
Okay. Thank you Amelia at The Ramblings of a Teenage Writer for giving me this award! It is an honor! I am subscribed to your blog, by the way!
Step 2: Share seven random facts about yourself.
Random, you say? Well, here goes nuffin’.
- I love the smell of “basement”. Not musty, old, moldy, or unfinished basement, that’s disgusting. Just the smell of, basically, another dimension of a house. Maybe I’ve just come to like it from long, strenuous nights hunched over a guitar, meticulously practicing for hours (that’s a funny picture, isn’t it? It’s also not true. I usually just sit on the floor. Sometimes my legs fall asleep. Y’know.)
- One time, I took something from the “Free” box at the local record store (y’know, gotta stock up on stickers and all). The next time I went, I saw it actually says “Free, with purchase”. Whoops. Guess I’m an outlaw. Come and get me, coppers! I’m the one you’re looking for!
- My one friend accused me of being attracted to guitars in a romantic way, after simply asking, addressing the lone guitar case in a corner of a classroom, “Who’s guitar is that?”. Oh yeah. You hit the nail on the head there, Clare. I’m definitely a guitarosexual. You found me out.
- I got the idea for this blog (and basically anything I ever write) in the shower.
- My career of musical instruments so far has consisted of: piano, flute, upright bass, guitar, and ukulele. Maybe you could count my awful experience in 4th and 5th grade choir. Oh, lord, never mind. That was not OK. ‘Scuse me, but singing the Wacko’s America States and Capitals song and different Broadway hits isn’t exactly what keeps an elementary, MANDATORY choir’s attention through an entire, grueling, half hour practice.
- I’ve only swam since last summer and I’m more-or-less on par with other swimmers who’ve swam since elementary school. My main stroke is breaststroke (probably because it’s the “slow” stroke. I just like the up and down, fluidness of it that takes a while to perfect – like butterfly, only not so darn tiring). Not to toot my own horn or anything. Wink.
- “…Toot my own horn” is my absolute FAVORITE saying/figurative language/who knows what part of speech this is. And only my sister would know why. I like to say it. Maybe I like to talk about myself, and it just comes up often. Me? Self-centered? (#2 would be “Catch my drift?” Need to use that one a LOT to make sure the person I’m talking to is still awake. #3 would be one I’ve only just recently heard, and is a response to #2, “I’m picking up what you’re putting down.” It’s very reassuring to know that someone paid attention to what I explained.)
Well, as you may have guessed, I weaseled way more than 7 facts in there, but who cares, it’s MY blog. I count…16-ish facts in there. Oh well.
Step 3: Pass the award along to 5 deserving blogging buddies.
- Girlie Says What, come on down! You’re the first recipient of this fine and dandy award!
