I won my very first blogging award!
|I was hoping for the 'best in bed'|
award, but this will do for now.
This is the Psycho Carnival Award for Originality. It originated at The Psycho Carnival blog (a blog you have to see to believe), and was awarded to me by Rantings of the Reckmonster. Miss Reckmonster's blog is some funny funny stuff, so for her to recognize ME as a 'heavy hitter' is an honor, award or not.
Now, most of you know, with bloggie awards comes rules:
1 - Post the award. (tadaa!!!!)
2 - Cut a Hole in the Box... oh wait, no... Bestow the award onto some bloggers you deem worthy, and let the bitches know. This will be done right after I finish the rules.
3 - #3 doesn't seem to exist. Or maybe the Reckmonster skipped #3. So I'm going to make up a #3 here. Go streaking! WoooO!!!
4 - Tell an original thought/story, or post an original photo for people to gawk at. (coming in a few seconds)
5 - Shout out the person who gave you this award. Um, did that. A few times. :D
Ok, now to puff puff pass...
I would like to award this to:
- Shutterbug, over at Thingamajig. Sure there are photo sites galore, but this chick turned it into a damn fun game. Every day she posts an extreme closeup of an object, and the little lemmings that follow her try to guess what it is. She posts every day, and has a wide range of photos. It's original, it's entertaining, and it's great photography! Go check it out!
- Autumnforest at Ghost Hunting Theories. I watch Ghost Hunters. I watch Destination Truth. I watch all the other wannabes that make it a season or two before dying out. If AF had a show, she'd be my favorite. She's original, quirky, and when you watch her "Ghost Hunts" you'll laugh your ass off (if you haven't clicked that link yet, what's wrong with you!?)
- Con Queso at Con Queso's Cross-Stitch and Game Blog. He cross-stitches Kirby and Yoshi onto fabric. Enough said. If that isn't original, I don't know what is! Oh yeah, and his blog is 7 kinds of awesome.
Now for some originality on my part. Most people don't know this about me, but I was/am a professional level flutist. I played up until my 3rd year of college, when I "fell in love" and dropped out. (heh, and that worked out SO WELL for me...)
|Sadly yes. That's me circa 1995.|
My passion was to be a music teacher. I did band in High School. Yes I was a band nerd. Yes I did marching band. Yes I was in band camp. Now the fun part. YES I can relate to the famous American Pie reference. I dated a girl who wanted to see if my flute could be used in other ways, so we tried it. That was in 1998. AP wasn't released until 1999. Was I a trend-setter? Maybe.
In college, I got good. Damn good. I was a substitute for the local Orchestra, and was dabbling in Jazz Flute. I went to San Luis Obispo for a chance to play with a group of elite musicians, where I met a dude who could beatbox while playing. Now he's famous and I don't play anymore. I still want to learn how he does it, but could never get the hang of it.
|Jazz Flute, anyone?|
There you go. If an Idahoan jazz flutist that stuck his 'instrument' up a girl's hoo-ha isn't original, I don't know what is.
Before I go, I need to announce the winner of the Viral Video Faceoff that godaddy fucked up.
The winner is: Trogdor with 6 votes to Jenn's 5! Wow, it was closer than I thought...
