Congratulations On Your Random, Unfocused Writings

Jessica from the blog Jessica, Why Are You So Bossy? recently contacted me to let me know that I had won "The Versatile Blogger Award". It's not so much an award as it is a modern-day chain letter among bloggers, but I takes what I gets, especially when it affords me the opportunity to do something I so seldom do: talk about myself. So, thanks, Jessica!
The OFFICIAL rules of the award are:
-Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
-Tell your readers 7 things about yourself.
-Give this award to up to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
-Contact those bloggers and tell them the exciting news!
Here's seven achingly fascinating facts about yours truly:
  1. I believe that everyone should have to - yes, be forced to - work in the service industry for six months at some point in their lives. It would be like military service for the capitalist soul. The result? Our society would become 30% less dickish.*
  2. While I can hear things pretty well, I can almost never tell what direction the sound is coming from.
  3. I'm always surprised that when we talk about things that happened ten years ago, we're no longer referring to the early '90s.
  4. I want to get a bicycle but I'm oddly rather scared to ride one.
  5. I sometimes take intentionally bad photos of myself and send them to friends to cheer them up. I feel sorry for people who avoid doing things like this because they think they might one day have a career in politics:
  6. I get really nervous around balloons. I'm certain they're going to pop at any second. I particularly want to barf when a helium balloon is touching a popcorn ceiling.
  7. Roughly 90% of the things I say on Twitter are about things I see on TV. That should embarrass me but it really, really doesn't.
* Fact.

And I now ceremoniously bestow the Versatile Blogger Award on:
Check 'em out!

Haha congratulations on the award Jen. I only recently discovered your blog but you're a lot of fun to read.

And that photo, I'm sure when you're president, we'll all fondly look back on what we're all missing out on. x

"3.I'm always surprised that when we talk about things that happened ten years ago, we're no longer referring to the early '90s."

I'm the same way! (I'm 25) The early 2000's always seems like they were only two years ago.
