I Have One Lovely Blog!

Props to Vinny C over at "As Vinny C's It" for the blog award! I now have the opportunity to share seven things about myself that you don't already know. Yeah, good luck with that. With over 300+ posts, what have I not told you yet? I've recently told you about getting trapped in an elevator with a wild animal. I've also shared how my college roommate and I took down a killer. I've even shared how I almost went to jail over a hamburger.

What seven more things could I possibly add at this point?

Well, since Vinny was nice enough to bestow the award upon me, the least I can do is reach deep into my brain and pull out seven new things. Here we go (and no, I'm not calling the dog from the beer commercial):

1. I've fulfilled two of three dreams I've had since being in my early 20's: being a sportswriter (for my local newspaper) and hosting a radio show. The third dream is to be a contestant on Jeopardy, but in all honesty, I've had second thoughts about my desire to be on a game show.

2. I will kill you if you attempt to put a snake, real or fake, on me. That's pretty much self-explanatory.

3. I've visited 16 states so far in my life. I still have 33 to go (Alaska is out of the question). The next state to cross off of my list will probably be either Nevada, Arizona or California.

4. I once beat Samuel L. Jackson's relative in a game of Mortal Kombat. When Sam was shooting "A Time to Kill" in a neighboring city, he came to the mall with this kid. At the time, I thought it was his son, but I later found out he doesn't have a son. Whoever it was, I was destroying him when Sam walked into the arcade with his beefy, female security guard and told him that it was time to go. It was probably the first time I'd ever had a conversation with a celebrity (although it was only two sentences).

5. My brother had two scenes in "A Time to Kill."

Guess which one is him?  And no, it's not Photoshopped. 
5. I guess that one doesn't count since that's more about my brother than me, so I'll do another #5. One of my influences from television when growing up came from James Bond movies. I was always quick-witted thanks to my father's genes, but Bond taught me timing. It's not always how you say something, but when you say it. Knowing when to be funny and when to be serious is important.

6. I watch Univision multiple times a week because I miss being able to speak Spanish fluently. In high school, I won multiple competitions (for skits) and was vice president of my high school's Spanish club. I once spoke it very well, but now mi espanol es muy malo. I still watch Univision with the closed caption on and try to recapture what I once had.

7. I love accents. My favorites being New Orleans and Jamaican accents. Now, I only like them when it's a female speaking. Hearing dudes speak in any dialect means nothing to me, but a good "Nolia" accent or any form of patois spoken by a woman will make my ears perk up like a German shepherd.

Okay, those are seven new things that I've shared about me. I will now pass this award on to three people to do the same:

Cari from Bubble Gum On My Shoe
Christina from Solitary Mama
Marjorie from Don't Call Me Marge

Now, ladies, if listing seven things about yourself is simply not your thing, ladies, then feel free to just accept the award and keep it at that. I just wanted to let you know that your blogs are definitely appreciated!

  5. I feel you about the snakes. I don't mind them, but I mind something else and if someone puts that on me I will murder you twice.

    If you ever get out to California let me know so I can give you places to go/eat/stay!! :)

    1. Murder them twice? You had to one-up me, didn't you? LOL! Thanks, I will definitely be seeking advice if I get to Cali. San Diego is on my radar.

  6. Well good grief. Thanks Q. I'm not even sure I deserve to be in the same group as them bitches (because let's face it, they're awesome). We were just talking about your blog and how you keep tweeting the Dogtopus post Cari wrote. btw hahahahahah when she tweeted "Okay Q you can stop tweeting dogtopus soup." I still laugh...good times.

    I believe since you selected the Bitchery Triad we may have to make this our next post. Love your blog as well. Thank you so much for including me ;)

    2. No problem, ladies. I enjoy what you all have and will continue to laugh at the three of you. You are all very entertaining. As for the Dogtopus post, that never gets old!

  7. Q, you rock! I'm not going to lie, I was late reading this and was wondering why people were telling me congrats on the twitter. I thought it was one of those daily occurrences where people answer the Triberr tweets. You do have an awesome blog, one of my favorite reads, and definitely gonna get some blog love from the Triad. I also think you single handedly made dogtopus soup the highest rated post of all time on my blog, bless your heart.;)

    Didn't know you had a radio show, but checking that out!

    1. Thank you, Cari! As for the radio show, it's over a year old. So many bloggers have contributed to it as callers or even guests. I'm sure the Triad would be a highly-rated show waiting to happen.

      Long live Dogtopus Soup!
