My first blogging award (could be like a chain letter but I don't care)

I got an award on June 5.  Yes, I know I'm slow.  I've not been blogging lately and so I suck but maybe not so know, award and all.  So here are the rules :

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Share ten things about yourself
3. Pass the award along to 10 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
4. Contact the bloggers and let them know you've picked them for the award.

Thank you so much Daffodil Campbell for my very first blogger award.  You rock.  Seriously, you do.  I think I might love you.  Too much?

Ten things about myself..hmmmm....

1)  I hate all things Twilight with a passion.  I want to take those sparkly vampires and that stupid girl and run splintery stakes up their butts.
2)  I love most all other vampire stuff though...Anita Blake, Sookie Stackhouse, Buffy, Betsey Queen of the Undead, etc.
3) I want to LARP with all of my being, which is something that makes me the brunt of many jokes in my family.  I would like to be a mystic wood elf.
4) I greatly fear the zombie apocalypse and every now and then will find myself on survivalist web sites planning how we would fortify ourselves and survive.
5) I don't make friends easily.
6) I cried when Buffy, Stargate SG-1  and Star Trek the Next Generation went off the air.
7) My dream anniversary present is spending the weekend at the Renaissance Faire.
8) I have been writing a Stargate / Buffy crossover for three years now and I'm still not done.
9) We sometimes take in homeless people to live with us.
10) I have a vase full of dead flowers on my desk because I think they look cool.

Who shall I give this to?  I'm going hunting for new bloggers this weekend and I'll update this with their names.
My very first award given goes to:


  1. Haha. You want to LARP! Maybe we can find a Twilight LARP group. Wouldn't that be awesome? You can be one of the humans who knows about sparkly vampires and is hunting them down out of jealousy of their sparkliness.

  2. You're just mad because we can't find a WOW LARP group. And I'm going to make you be a mystic wood elf too. *Pelts you with bag of bird seed* Sleep!

  3. OH WOW! I am sooooo excited. Umm... I was just kidding when I said I was a Twilight fan.

    I SERIOUSLY LOVE YOU! Thank you so much for my first award. I will pass it on asap. Just like you, I've been meaning to make a trip over here for a while now. I'm old and slow too.


  4. I'm so glad you liked the award. You were the very first person I thought of when I was trying to decide who to give it to.

  5. P.S.-- I am also a HUGE Queen Betsy fan. She got me started in the Paranormal Romance genre.

  6. I love Queen Betsy. Have you read of any the St. Germain Novels by Chelesea Quinn Yarbro?

  7. Nope. Gonna have to look into it now though. I think I'll try to get through the current suffering I'm going through with the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It's killing me, but I am no quitter. Off to the bookstore I go as soon as I'm done. Wish me luck with that.

  8. I have a dead flower on the dash of my car because it looks cool!

  9. OK, we have little ground to share in this list of yours. Which is OK, because if everyone was like everyone else? Life would be way boring.

    Although I am with you splintery stakes up the Twilight behinds. But then I would also splinter the behind of every adult vampire fan in the entire world. Vampires are stupid.

    Congratulations on your award! Bouquets of dead flowers to follow.

    Love you.

  10. This list made me laugh...I think we're kindred spirits. At my wedding, I danced to the theme of Enterprise with my father. I think elves are sexy. I'm with you on the vampires...but (and this is an important question) where do you stand on Vampire Diaries?
