Leg Lamp-ish Prize

Guess what?   Chicken butt!  No, not really. 
I’ve been given an award:

The Versatile Blogger Award, by Susan over at e-i-e-i-omg!  (Don’t ya just love that name???)  If you haven’t visited her blog yet, go over there and take a look at her sheep-filled homestead and read about her farmish adventures.  Oh, did I mention she does this all of it while holding down a full-time job?  Wowza.
Anyhow, in order to accept above mentioned blogging award, there are three rules and here they are:
1.  Link back to the person who gave you the award.  That would be Susan at e-i-e-i-omg!
2.  Share seven things about yourself that people may not know about you. 
3.  Pass the Versatile Blogger Award onto another blogger.
So here are my “Seven Things”.….
I collected Star Wars action figures as a kid.
My daughter is named after a Celtic witch with a fondness for horses and ravens.
I can’t stand the sight of my own blood.  Yes, I’ve killed, skinned and butchered numerous wild game and livestock, but the sight of my own blood will send me crashing to the floor in a cold sweat.
I’m a staunch Libertarian.  It causes much “discussion” between other D or R friends, but I forgive them for their misgivings and continue our friendship regardless.
I have a colossal sweet tooth.  Chocolates are my favorite, especially (cue shameless plug) Louisa & Millie's Chocolates!  But I’ve also been known to eat an entire package of Peeps in under a minute.  Really.
My husband and I met at my Dad’s bar, where in a buzzed stupor I dropped my head to the table and murmured, “All I want is some land and a Dodge Cummins Diesel”.  The rest is history.
If there were a surgical procedure that could enhance my backside with a tail, I’d do it in a heartbeat (well, I’d definitely think about it for a while).  Not just a fluffy or fuzzy tail, but something like a Lemur’s prehensile tale. 
Now ain’t that just too weird?  But imagine the possibilities!
Anyhow, now I get to pass this, uhm, award, to another blogger, who in turn has to divulge seven things about themselves and pass it on to yet another blogger, thus continuing the evil cycle of blogosphere spam-like awards. 
Soooo…..who do I dislike, I mean, feel deserves this award?  I’m pretty partial to those virtually unknown, obscure, homestead-y type of bloggers but I’m also a sucker for cats.  So I’d like to introduce you to Clyde & George, I mean, Danni at On the way to Critter Farm.  Want to know who she, Clyde & George are?  Then go over there and take a look-see.
Start thinking about those seven juicy tidbits of personal information that you are going to reveal to the universe Danni!  Bwaaaahahahahah!!!!
BTW Danni, if you don’t like the idea of the award just let me know and I’ll pick another blogger to play as to not disrupt the cyber-running of this particular award.  I’ll understand.   Trust me, I will.


  1. It IS like a virus, isn't it? You can't wait to pass it on and get it the heck off your plate!! Tail? Actually, I think that's a great idea. We could let everyone know when we were happy -- or not. But prehensile is even better - swinging from barn rafters, dispensing grain! And quit tempting me with those darn chocolates~!

  2. I'm telling ya, I'd be a multi-tasking queen if I had a tail like that!

  3. Cute post! Love learning new things about you. I never collected Star Wars, but I did have a Castle Grayskull with Skeletor and Ram Man. We used to put our Barbies in there, too. We were an equal opportunity toy family. :)

  4. Love this post! Land and a diesel, yet another fellow blogger I must be related to! :)
