Monday ~ In Which I Make a Come Back and Get an Award

You'd think that having two weeks off of work would have given me ample opportunities of multiple blog posts, but I guess I'm bound to disappoint you in that. It's been over a week since I posted, and it's been almost three weeks since we had a Starbucks Tuesday. If you've found yourself missing out on your no-calories cyber drink, check back again tomorrow!

One of the delightful things that kept me from posting was that in the second week of my holiday from work, I was house-sitting. And it.was.grand! I incidentally DID have the camera and I COULD have taken pictures and posted, etc...but you see...they had wireless. That is, wireless with unlimited data. Which movie marathons!! I just tallied up all the movies I watched, including shows, and ahem... the grand total was TWENTY movies, two of them having been watched twice, one of them being at least four hours. Yah, I was pretty much the girl on the couch underneath a laptop, drinking soda and eating potato chips. *grin* And for the record, Little Lady, my Pride & Prejudice's Darcy is still the hottest! Elliot Cowan may have been a better Darcy than Firth, but he can't beat Orlando Seale. ;)

Anyways, upon my arrival back to the bloggy-blog-asphere, I was informed of my awardship (enter that word into your dictionary, please) of a questionnaire/survey thing. I'm delighted to answer the questions, but I shall forgo the full eleven re-tags. If I tagged you and you don't like this kind of stuff, no prob. :)

1. You must post eleven facts about yourself.
2. You must also answer the eleven questions the awarder has given you and make up eleven questions for your awardees to answer in turn.
3. Tag eleven fellow bloggers
4. Notify them that you've awarded them
5. No tagging back
6. And the eleven blogs you tag must have less than 200 followers.
{eleven facts about me}
 1) I never sleep in an unmade bed, even to the point where on several occasions, I’ve made my bed right before getting into it.
2) I like cottage cheese on chicken.
3) I love motorcycles.
4) When I was little, I got my head stuck in a chair back on Christmas day. My mom had to break apart the chair to get my head out. With pictures to prove it.
5) I have a thing for fire-fighters and paramedics. **find a happy place, find a happy place*
6) I’m the fourth of eight children and the loudest of all.
7) I’ve flown in an airplane well over 40 times.
8) I spent two years living out of a suitcase and “home” was a bus and semi.
9) I’ve been in a hot air balloon.
10) I am deathly afraid of being in water other than a swimming pool or bath tub.
11) My brothers say I have a song for every situation.

{Little Lady's Questions to Me}
1. Rain or Shine?
I’ll take an Irish day any day! Gray, rainy, cold….the stuff magic’s made of, in my opinion.
2. What was your favorite cartoon / movie growing up?
“Growing up” spans a good portion of my life (indeed, am I not still “growing up” to some degree?), but I”ll allot this form of “growing up” to my actual childhood. “And here we have the actual jungle location of the movie…Muppet Treasure Island!” The most quotable movie ever.
3. If you could be any character from a book, who would you be?
I have to admit being completely at a loss on this one.  The potential is truly overwhelming. (UPDATE: although while listening to my audio book during lunch break, I couldn't help but note to myself that it would be really cool to be Professor McGonagall...because she can turn into a cat!)
4. What is your favorite dessert?
Unoriginally - ice cream. :)
5. Favorite specialty drink (Starbucks/Biggby/Etc.)
It periodically changes, but this past summer it’s been Starbucks’ White Chocolate Mocha Frapp.
6. Favorite screen/literary couple?
Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe.
7. What is your favorite restaurant?
Red Robin ranks pretty high up there. I’m a beef burger kinda gal.
8. What is your favorite color and why?
Definitely blue. Because it’s a fresh, cleansing kind of color.
9. If you had to eat one food forever, what would it be?
Pepperoni pizza, dawg. :)
10. Mascara or blush?
Mascara! I almost never wear blush. I'm a firm believer in the power of eye make-up.
11. Is your hair color natural? 
It is! I dyed it once or twice, but neither dye jobs turned out well (especially the one that turned orange…), so I grew it out. I do have an unquenchable desire to have dark “chestnut” brown hair, but don’t want the pain of re-dying and eventually growing it out again.

{Questions for the Awarded to Answer}
To make it simple, why don't you just answer the same ones I answered? Little Lady did a frabjous job, and I hope she graciously doesn't mind me not only using her questions, but also stealing her questions format. 'Member, copying is the sincerest form of flattery. ;)

{The Awarded}
Meghan (Just As I Am)

Coming soon: pictures of a couple that may or may not be familiar to you!
