Awards, Fun Facts, and Merry Christmas

Dec 20, 2010

So I've been sitting on these awards for a while, and figured I should finally pass them on! Margo Kelly gave me the From Me to You award, and Alexia Chamberlynn gave me the Honest Scrap award. Thanks so much, ladies!

Here are a few random facts about me to go along with the awards:

1. I once hitchhiked in Africa in a truck full of guys. Not my smartest moment, but I ended up alive and with a few new friends.

2. I have double-jointed ankles-- I can actually flip my feet backwards so my heels are pointing forward.

3. In college, I took a road trip that involved spinning a bottle and traveling the direction it pointed. We had no destination, and just stopped at all the places that had signs like "Historic Rock Formation." There was also an orangutan involved. I never knew Idaho could be so cool.

4. My favorite Disney character is Eeyore, because I just want to give him a hug.

5. I got hit by a car in college as I roller-bladed to work. I was in the crosswalk and the person turning left wasn't watching, and...bam. I'd always thought it would be cool to ride in an ambulance. It's not.

And the awards go to (take your pick of either one!):

And lastly but not leastly, Merry Christmas, all you wonderful folks! I'll be off the blog until after the holiday, and I hope you all have as much joy as I'm anticipating.

COngratulations on the awards and thank you so much for thinking of me!

WOW. Your life sounds like it would make a good book! I love that idea of just spinning a bottle and just going where it points you.

I've always wondered what it'd be like to be hit by a car... I really don't want to find out.

Crazy about your ankles!!

Merry Christmas!

Hi Shallee, you are a sweetie. Congrats for the awards and thanks for passing it on to me. I will take the From Me to You Award. I already have the Honest Scrap Award. Congrats to the other awardees.

I have never heard of double jointed ankles. Does it cause you problems?

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Great New Year!

Shallee, forgot to tell you that its taking me ages to connect to your blog by clicking on your name when you leave a comment on my blog, or clicking on your picture in my followers list.

Is there a problem for you too when you click either on my name or picture?

Congrats on the awards! Wow, you should post a picture of your ankles! My daughter has double jointed elbows and when her arms are straight out they bend the other way. Kinda creepy looking. Sounds like you had some great adventures! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Susan Fields said...

Merry Christmas to you!
