Ok, it’s awards time again! This time it’s the Liebster Award from the wonderful Laura Maisey.I know this is like the third time for me, but I do love doing this award.

First I am to tell you 11 facts about myself so here goes:

1. Most things I eat, now are low-carb and/or high-fiber foods.

2. JD Robb and Patricia Cornwell are two of my favorite living authors.

3. I used to bowl on Wii all the time and got two 300 games.

4. I own a lot of cookbooks.

5. The thing I miss the most since my stroke is playing competitive volleyball.

6. Oblivion, Skyrim, and Fallout3 are among my very favorite video games.

7.  I have written mods (modification programs) for Oblivion.

8. I love playing Euchre and Poker, but scrabble is one of my very favorites.

9.  I, currently, play between 16-20 games at one time in “Words With Friends” on Facebook.  I win about 85% of the games.

10. I have about 39,000 cards for “Magic the Gathering”.

11.   One of my very first written poems was entitled “I Love the Ocean”.  It was horrible and I don’t love the ocean.

Next I answer 11 questions posed to me by Mark (who gave them to Laura)

1. What is your earliest lingering memory?
I remember taking sis on a wagon ride outside early one morning in our pjs.

2. Is there a person from History you admire more than any other and if so, why do you admire them?
The three people I truly admire are Geo Washington Carver, Helen Keller, and Joan d’Arc.  I guess I admire them because each of them overcame great difficulties in order to succeed.

3. Do you have a hobby that is unrelated to your work? And if so, what is it?
I don’t work, as such, anymore, but my hobby would be my video games.

4. How many houses have you lived in, including your current?
5 houses, 5 apartments, and 2 dorm rooms.

5. How do you think you might fair on University Challenge?
I don’t know what that is, but, assuming it is a trivia challenge, I am terrible at general trivia for some reason.  I am smart and know all kinds of things and little details about stuff, but never the right stuff.

6. Is there another time in History you’d like to live ? When would it be and why?
I always thought I would have loved to live in the early 1800s in America, but I was sickly and would have, most likely, died young.

7. How long do you spend on the net per day?
I total about 12-14 hours a day now that I don’t work.  That includes Email, my Blog, reading other posts (about 22-25 a day), other articles, and playing video games, as well as just hopping around.

8. If you could run your country, what would be the first act of your Premiership?
I imagine my first act would be making enemies of the people I run with as I wouldn’t understand what I could and couldn’t do, so would do things I believe are best and I doubt they would like them.

9. Do you have a favourite record? If so, which is it?
My favorite singer is Christina Perri; however, what I love listening to the most is Celtic, light rock, and Blues.  I also love most of the oldies music like Bing and Sinatra.

10. Who has been the biggest influence on your life so far?
In all actuality, my son.  He and I have had discussions which have totally changed the way I look at things and that has caused me to continue on that path.

11. Why do you blog?
I love the writing and sharing what I know.  It is fun to put a different spin on things when I can and see how people react to them.  I love the atmosphere that most of the bloggers on WP give out.

I am now supposed to put on 15, I believe, bloggers who I will nominate.  This is too many when it is my third time.  So, what I am going to do is to nominate a few of those people I have started following in the last few months.  You should check them out.  I will start nominating the regulars soon enough.

1)  Let Live in Practices

2)  The War in My Brain

3)  Mrs. Reckless Writes

That’s all I am going to do.  These three are fun to read and informative.  Number 3 is 17 years old and I don’t think we read enough of our younger writers (well, I don’t).

    Congrats on your award and THANK YOU for nominating my blog!

    Scott, Congrats on this award! I really enjoyed reading your Q & A’s. Thank you so much for nominating my blog for this award. I am humbled and honored! I do want to admit that I have been really bad about carrying out the obligations that go along with these awards. It is not because I am not appreciative, believe me I am, it is a time thing. I find it difficult to keep up my blog, mother my young children, work as a psychotherapist, and finish my forthcoming book. But with all that said- I will see what I can do. I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate you, my friend! -Kristin

      I know you do, Kristin. As you can see by my own response to the award, I can’t always do as much as I am asked, either. The idea is to get info about you out there and to mention some people to help them.
      Looking forward to whatever you put out there.


  • Great job and congratulations.
