You Like Me, You Really Like Me...

I done won an award! A big thank you goes to In2Paints at Rlilbitofcash for selecting me.

The rules of the award are that you share seven facts about yourself, and that you give this award to 15 other bloggers. Fifteen. I dunno if I know 15 blogs...

Anyway, the lil' known facts:

1) I have heterochromia.* So does Dan Akroyd, Christopher Walken, and Keifer Sutherland. I guess that makes me speshul.
2) I love to grocery shop. Yep. I wander the aisles dreaming up yummy concoctions of interesting ingredients. I love to cook and eat, too!
3) I'm the president of our local saddle club. We manage 25 miles of bridle trails on public forest lands.
4) "I play third chair trombone in an out-of-work polka band." Actually, I play trumpet, French horn and baritone. I'm involved with the local community band and I fill in with a Bohemian polka band once in awhile. (Without googling, name the tune that line came from.)
5) I have OCD but keep it in check by practicing lazy ignorance.
6) I married into this horse thing. Sara asked me out for our first date and I was skeert to give her a g'nite kiss (trust me, I wanted to!). We went to see City Slickers. What a harbinger that was!
7) I'm the youngest of 54 first cousins, a brother to 8, and an uncle of 15.

Geesh. In review, I'm downright peculiar.

Now, who to award this to?

The 7MSN Ranch

Diary of the Overanxious Horse Owner

Haha! Why thanks, I think Ive been nominated three times now! :) You forgot though, that I nominated you too. But Ill forgive you.

Two different colored eyes? Sounds like Milo :)

Aunt Krissy said...

See a lot of that in huskys up in AK, not be any means saying that your a dog! My grandpa had that also, till he lost an eye and they replaces it with a matching glass one.

Now that you won an "award" , will you post more?


Danni said...

Well, now I know what heterochromia is! (and I loved the little asterisk that led me to the next question that came to my mind after I looked up the definition!!) I think David Bowie has this, too, doesn't he? And yes, you are definitely SPESHUL. lol

OCD and "lazy ignorance" are oxymorons, aren't they? Does this method work? :-)

Thank you for thinking of me with this award! That was a fun surprise.
I love a list of new blogs to check out - I'm off to do that now!
Hope you have a nice weekend!

Actually, Bowie had an injury that led to his eye being permanently dilated. Which just adds to his freakyness.

Danni said...

Wow, I did not know this! I could've sworn that his eyes were two different colors, too.
Freaky, indeed. :-)

Crystal said...

hi thatnks for visiting my blog! Ive been reading yours and it looks good, will definitly be coming back.

The Wife said...

Congrats! Wow, you chose me to pass it one to. Thanks!

Third chair trombone, huh! Who would have known!

Shirley said...

Thanks for thinking of me too with this award, but I don't do awards any more. I never knew what that was called with 2 different colored eyes, so I learned something today! A musician, huh? Ted's cousin is an Oboe player in a symphony orchestra, and I think he has a little OCD too. Maybe comes with the territory?
