I've been tagged!

by - May 22, 2010

Okay, so I don't really get into the whole awards thing. I've actually been awarded quite a few but I either don't realize it until a few days later (in the words of Christina - you're so slow it's cute) or I've got something super exciting and newsworthy to regale you guys with or I just don't feel like it. And even for the few that I did repost, well I don't have people to tag because all the people I would tag have already been tagged or were the person I tagged.

But, it's the weekend and I don't have anything to do right now and I'm not sleepy yet so I'll humor Gnetch with the Super Comments Award.

Here are the rules for this one (simplified version) :

1. Thank and link the person who gave you this award. (you can find that up above)
2. Place the award on your blog.
3. Answer the 10 questions associated with the award.
4. Pass the award. (as I said earlier, I don't do this part)

1. Why do you blog?
Honestly, it's my one remaining link to real writing. My job is writing, but it's not real. It's broadcast - you know, dressed up to sound pretty on t.v. I miss writing actual stories and would really love to get back into the print side of journalism (once the market stabilizes, of course).

2. What are your three best memories?
These kinds of questions are hard to answer.
-Costa Rica
-The day my principal told me I was salutatorian... after the guidance counselors made my parents sign waivers because I wasn't taking calculus or chemistry & supposedly wouldn't even be an honor graduate.
-Giving an award-winning speech in front of 4,000 people.

3. If you had to change your real name, what would you change it to? 
I've always liked my name.
4. What are the five things you can't live without?
I'm assuming that the essentials - food, shelter, water - are understood.
-mountain dew (I can make it a few days)
-cell phone

5. What are the four best books you've ever read?
Here, There Be Dragons by James A. Owen
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
American Dreams by John Jakes

6. Tell me something unique and interesting about yourself.
I don't think I'm very interesting...

7. What do you love about yourself?
I'm usually the one person to stay calm in times of crisis.
8. What is the best movie ever made?
I assume this is supposed to be my favorite movie... The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

9. If you had a "freaky friday" experience, who would you trade places with and why?
I really don't know. I've never wanted to trade lives with anyone.

10. What's the best part about being a woman?
- We can do guy stuff. In high heels! Woot! <-- I totally agree with Gnetch on this one. Haha.
