Ok, for number 1, simply click on the pic above to link back to lazylauramaisey;s blog.

Number 2 is fun.  I love stating things about myself that are not involved in a blog, just facts.

1)  When I was very little, I dressed up in fancy clothes and won a container of bubble gum / ribbon at our local fair.

2)  I studied the piano for several years when little, but, other than use it to help me sing, I didn’t do much with it later.

3)  I have double vision from my May 2010 stroke, but use part of a Magic the Gathering Trading Card to block out part of my right lens so I can see without the doubles.

4)  One of my eyes never dilates, the other is always dilated (stroke again).

5)  For many years, my heart-throb was Jessica Alba.

6)  I served as a head of jury once in Indianapolis.

7)  I have written several well-received mod programs for the video game Oblivion.  One such mod added several dozen people to the population of Tamriel and I wrote several books for use in the game.

Super Sweet! – Me?

John W. Howell has nominated me for the Super Sweet Award.  I have been nominated once and carry the icon on my left side section, but it is always special, I think, to be nominated for an award.  It shows that what I am doing is liked by others and that they took time out of their busy schedules to think of me.

The Rules:

  • Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated you. (Thank you John)
  • Answer five Super Sweet questions. (see below)
  • Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in your blog post. (Okay, Here you go.)
  • Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other bloggers. (I did 4)
  • Notify your nominees on their blog.(Did)

The 5 Super Sweet Questions: (and, my answers)

  1. Cookies or Cake?  I can’t have either on any type of regular basis; however, I can have cookies once in a while if I am careful about the carbs.
  2. Chocolate or Vanilla? I agree with John – chocolate is a food group.
  3. Favorite Sweet Treat? My favorite sweet treat has changed since my diagnosis with Diabetes.  Now, I love Bryer’s high-fiber chocolate ice cream.  It is low in carbs, tastes good, and allows me ice cream!  Let’s not confuse this with a Dairy Queen Large Chocolate Malt which I adore, but can no longer have.
  4. When do you crave sweet things the most? Is there a time when I wouldn’t?
  5. Sweet Nick Name? “Different” – “You certainly are ‘different’.” They usually mean it in a nice way!

I am not going to come up with more than a few people to nominate for an award I have already been nominated for, but, I think I will take John’s idea and nominate those people whose posts generally have me going, “Oh, wow! That’s certainly different! – sweet!”

1) Mollie Player – Keeps my belief in the power of affirmation strong!

2) Renee – Her posts are often heated and not for the young, but wow!

3)  Becca – Her blog says that it is PG-13 on it, so don’t say I didn’t tell you – but she makes me laugh.

4) I think in comics – This wonderful young lady has always been able to make me smile with her comics.  I suggest some directions and she tolerates me for them.

Okay, that’s it!  As always, accept the nominations if you wish and all remember that I can’t nominate everyone, but I love you all.

Namaste,

Scott

Nomination Time!!!

Well, Hope the Happy Hugger nominated “You!” for the xxxxxx award, so I decided that I was a “you!” and am accepting.  Rules are pretty simple:

1)  Tell something about yourself.

2) Nominate others.

1)  Something about myself:  My favorite type of movie is the “Armageddon” type movies.  I enjoy the “after it is done, mankind is fighting to stay alive” things.  This works out well as many of these movies feature Zombies.  “The Walking Dead” is a great example of this.  However, movies such as “Tooth and Nail” are also great.

2) I think this time I will nominate several of my newest followers:

Through My Hearts  

Green Tea and Velociraptors

Bookendings

Tadalena

Driversprovided

Okay, please check out these people and, again, thanks to Hope, the Happy Hugger for nominating me!

Namaste,

Scott
