7 Random Facts... and an Award!

And suddenly from out of the blue sky it comes… a blog award!

But when you gets yerself a blog award from @ThatGirlAni you jump up and down and shout your favorite new word: frawesomesauceness

The rules for this award are:

* Thank and link to the person who nominated me. (That’s Anime)
* Share seven random facts about myself.
* Pass the award along to 15 new-found blogging buddies.
* Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

7 Random Facts In No Particular Order

1) I used to take my lunch breaks in a graveyard. I’m not even goth (at least I don’t think I qualify, having too much color in my wardrobe) And hey, I’ve even slept in a graveyard. (On a grave, but that was mostly so I could look at the stars uninterrupted for several hours. There’s just something really peaceful about graveyards.

2) I can mimic really useless things… like Gollum and Bobby from Bobby’s World (which is also Gizmo the Mogwai, so I guess that’s cool). Also harmonica, wookie, Tie Fighter flying by, and I did voiceover work as a bear. Seriously. Actually, 20 bears. Rawr.

I also did this voiceover… it’s very silly:

3) I’m Mexican. Half counts right?

4) I went to school in a castle in England. No it wasn’t Hogwarts… ok, yes it was Hogwarts.

5) I can play slide blues guitar. It’s an annoying party trick… haha!

6) I read mostly “literature” but write mostly “genre” fiction. *shrug

7) I almost got killed by lightning whilst standing on a grassy hill holding a plastic trashcan lid. (We were sliding down the buffalo grass in the rain, when BOOOOOM) It seemed to me a particularly ignoble and inexplicable way to die, so I’m glad I didn’t.

but as for passing on my blogging friends, I'm going to share this award with those who have my favorite blog titles!
