That's Enough for a Cabinet


Chrys Fey is a very talented blogger who's very giving of her time and knowledge. She decided I was deserving of the "Creative Blogger Award", one of the more prominent awards that are handed around the blogger community. But she's going to make me jump through hoops to get it - I have to tell you five random facts about myself and pass it on to two other bloggers. Because I'm desperate for more recognition, this seemed a small price to pay.

Here are five random things you probably don't know about me:
  1. I've hated seafood ever since I got a fish bone stuck in my throat at a young age. But for some reason I love eating tinned tuna.
  2. The only time I've ever fainted (apart from the one time I passed out from drinking) was when I was getting a LOT of blood taken to be tested. The doctor told me to fast for 12 hours before the test and being me, I decided I'd go 15 hours just for good measure. The nurse put the needle in and started to take tube after tube of blood, and at one point she said "Now let me know if you start to get woozy." I'd been fine up until that point, but as soon as she said it I started to feel light-headed. I thought it was just some sort of placebo affect, so I laughed and said "Well now that you MENTION it, I'm woozy..." The next thing I knew, the nurse was trying to call my name and shake me awake.
  3. For a short guy, I constantly surprise people with how high I can jump.
  4. The perfume I buy for my car is much more expensive than the perfume I buy for me.
  5. The "G" stands for George.
Now there are TONS of creative people here on blogger. The obvious choice would be to give it to Pat Hatt. But I figure everyone on the internet would give it to him, so this time I'll just give him an honourable mention. The two recipients will be...


and...

Debra at She Who Seeks!

They're two of my favourite blogs to read. I hope they become yours too. Spread the love!

  2. You buy perfume for your car? That's so considerate of you.

    1. Well, it's more like cologne, but you know what I mean :)

  3. Thank you for the kind words, Michael!

    Whoa! You want to know something freaky? When I was a kid (about 5 or 6) I got a fish bone stuck in my throat and had to go to the ER to get it removed. I hated fish and wouldn't touch it. But when I got older (16-ish) I started to eat fish again...just as long as it doesn't have any bones!

    Haha...I also gave the Creative Blogger award to Pat. You're right, everyone would give it to him.

    1. Yeas, I'm the same! Whenever I eat fish I have to check each piece and chew it 100 times so that I don't miss a bone.

  4. Congratulation! And I guess short men can jump.

  5. Ick about the bone! It's no wonder you don't eat seafood. Taking a lot of blood can do that to a person. The last time I tried to donate blood, I almost passed out. That was the end of that for me.

    1. Someone should put the hoops higher next time ;)

  7. Congratulations on your award! Also, forgive me for not participating in your 'question of the month' blog hop. I haven't forgotten - just been sick and restricted on posting.

  8. I've fainted a few times--a couple times from the heat and once while I was pregnant. Not a fun feeling. It was interesting to learn a little more about you. Congratulations on your award!

    1. Wow, fainting while you're pregnant sounds very dangerous :P Was it a serious problem?

  9. I have an auto immune disorder but still (stupidly) decided to donate to our blood drive a few years back. The next day I had two black eyes and my energy was stripped for about 3 days. I always feel like an asshole when my kid's school sends home flyers for their annual blood drives and I decline. Trying to get over that hump was brutal!

    1. Aw don't feel like an ass hole, that's a VERY valid reason for not donating. No one wants you to put yourself at risk :)
