And to think, my high school guidance counselor questioned what my contribution to society will be.

Tessie and TracyZ have nominated me for a Beautiful Blogger Award. I'm flattered, thanks guys.

Now, I am supposed to:

  • Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
  • Copy the award and place it in your blog.
  • Link the person who nominated you for this award.
  • Tell us 7 interesting things about you.
  • Nominate 7 bloggers.
  • Post the links to the 7 bloggers you nominate.

Seven interesting things about me-

1) I have a talent that is somewhat counter productive to weight loss but fun nonetheless. Because movies and food are probably my most favorite ways to spend free time, I've developed an ability to pair the best food with any movie. For instance, using some of my favorite movies Tommy Boy = Fettucine alfredo with shrimp and chicken. South Park Bigger, Larger and Uncut = Chinese food. The Breakfast Club = Sausage Hoagie with peppers and onions. Rocky = chicken wings.

2) I lost both of my parents (mother had breast cancer, father had an anuerism) before I turned 25. That which doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

3) Despite conventional thought, I love discussing politics and religion. If these topics frighten you, your core beliefs on these topics are not yet strong enough to be tested.

4) I drive a mini-van. Though I don't feel like less of a man because of my vehicle, I do sometimes consider how I would look in a house dress. They look so comfortable.

5) If I could change the course of life I would be performing stand-up comedy. I have no regrets, I love my life and am very fulfilled. I just enjoy comedy.

6) I'm horrible at ping pong, but can play a decent game of tennis for a Fat Bastard.

7) I cry at the end of most movies.

I'm sorry everyone, I simply cannot choose seven bloggers. See those head shots to the right? They are my banded blog friends and I have a hard time ranking them. Sorry.


  1. Just so you know, I also nominated you. You have a fantastic blog here and I look forward to your new posts.

  2. 'house dress' ROTFLMAO! I'm coming to your house for a movie (and the exceptional pairing)! And our mini-vans will run over those SUV's any day! Congrats!!

  3. LMAO. I think you definitely could've made it in the stand up comedy genre. We just bought a minivan and while I'm a woman (I know what a house dress feels like. lol), it makes me feel OLD!

  4. This, my friend, is why I nominated you in the first place! Great post and if you ever do end up in a house dress I will demand photo proof! ;)

    Hope the pre-op diet is still going strong for you and that they give your date soon!

  5. Very funny post. Glad you were nominated.

  6. Enjoyable post! Congrats on the nom.

  7. hhahah just came over for a quick view-I need to add you on my favorites list as you do know how to make a girl laugh. :)..

    I have often thought those house dresses look comfy...Probably for different reasons I have always been afraid to wear them as well.
