Really me?

So Ali Cross awarded me these two awards.  I know I have no idea what she was thinking. I mean I haven't blogged for two weeks.( But I have a really good reason, I swear) Lol but in all honesty I'm excited to do these so thanks Ali.

According to the rules here are seven randomish things about me.

1. I'm the youngest of nine kids. Seven of those being girls. ( I know I want to how my mom survived too.)
2. I love cold weather and cloudy days.
3. There are fifty-four fourteeners in Colorado and I've climbed five of them. My goal is to do ten.
4.  I sometimes wonder if people really care if I blog every week. I'm not published yet, so do they really care about what I have to write about. Just something I think about a lot.
5. Saturdays and Sundays are set aside for my family. I don't do any writing or jewelry making on those days. Unless I'm home alone.
6. I'm a true blue native of Colorado. There aren't very many of us anymore.
7.I really don't like Texas. But I have a really good reason for this. My husband is from Texas and when we were dating anything that he didn't like here in Colorado would be followed by "This would never happen in Texas." Well you can imagine that this didn't make me happy at all. Colorado is a great state. So the more he said it the more I began to resent Texas. Now don't get me wrong there are some very pretty places there and after eight years of marriage it's beginning to grow on me. But still there is a small part of me that really doesn't like Texas.

8.Do you think you're hot?
    Lol um . . . it depends on the day.

9.Upload a picture or wallpaper that you're using at the moment.
   I would love to do this one. But I'm not using my computer and I don't think you want to see what my husband has on his.

10.  When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
      Friday night. We had chicken Tacos. Why didn't they just ask when I last had Chicken? Or are the worried that I ate the bones too?

11. The song(s) you listened to recently:
     This is a good one. Um . . .  well my player is on shuffle so I listen to a lot of  different things. I have everything from Nightwish( a finnish orchestral metal band) John Denver because well I'm in Denver, Muse, The Killers, Adele, Placido Domingo, Rihanna, and Mozart. Yes I know my interests are all over the place. Oh yeah and my husband got me hooked on this band called Fugazi

12.What were you thinking as you were doing this?
     I'm I answering truefully and I really want to go take a nap. hehehehe

13.Do you have nicknames? What are they?
     I don't really have any nicknames. In highschool everyone would say "Watch out for Gail force winds. There she blows." Of course then I would promptly punch the person who yelled it. So that nickname didn't last long. Lol

Tag 8 bloggers . . .
Okay here it goes. I never tagged people for stuff like this so let's see if I can do the cool name and link thingy. Also there might not be eight just because I'm not sure who hasn't done this already.

Debbie Davis
Brent Westcott
Wendy Swore
Tamara Heiner
Mandi Thomson
Kristi Tate
Alex Hoagland

Alright I know there are only seven. But don't worry I'm going to think of someone else just not right this minute.

Aw shucks! Thanks, Gail! You are awesome!

Brent Wescott said...

Thanks, Gail. I've always thought I was irresistible. Now I have confirmation.

Nightwish? Pretty dramitical. And Fugazi rocks. Try Minor Threat, Ian McKay's early 80's punk band.

Building Castles on the Beach

Brent Wescott said...

I don't know what "dramitical" means.

Cathy Witbeck said...

It was fun to learn new things about you Gail, plus I'd never heard of the fourteeners before. Cool.
We have something in common. My middle name is Gail, spelled the same way as yours.

I love this! And you and I have much the same taste in music - eclectic and all! Except I've never heard of Nightwish, so of course I'm off to check them out!

Thanks for playing!

Gail said...

Ali,if you check them out make sure you get their old stuff. They got a new singer who's awful. Their old singer had an opera back ground and their sound was amazing. Lol Cathy. I think it's a great name. And Brent I'm going to check out Minor Threat right now.

This is awesome. Thanks so much!
