I got an award? Really?

OMG. My weekend. Was "meh" overall except for the one hour of epic fabulousness that was the new Doctor Who. It was made of epic win. I couldn't stop shaking for like an hour afterward and I still haven't stopped thinking about it. Five days until the Big Bang (series finale)! In the meantime I'm watching all of series five again in search of clues to what will happen in the finale.

Also, today is the first official day of summer. So happy summer solstice!

Anyway...This award was passed on to me by Rebecca. *blushes* Thanks!! Isn't it shiny?

So according to the rules (guidelines) I have to...

1) Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award. [Check!]

2) Share 7 things about yourself.

3) Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...) [Define recently.]

4) Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award. things about myself...

1. The only sport I'll willingly watch and enjoy that doesn't involve horses is soccer. I've already seen quite a few of the World Cup games. Though I keep missing the first games of the day because they're at seven my time.

2. I used to be a morning person. Seriously, when I was younger it was almost impossible for me to sleep in past seven. Eight at the latest. After I became a writer, I slowly became nocturnal. Now I'm up until two in the morning almost every night and sleep in until ten or eleven.

3. I'm addicted to horse-related online games. I've joined probably twenty or more in my lifetime and I only play two right now. The longest lasting of those two is three years old.

4. I love video games. I have a DS, Playstation (which doesn't work anymore), Playstation 2, Gamecube, Wii, Gameboy Advance, and a Gameboy SP. My favorite video game of all time is Final Fantasy X. My favorite to play with other people is Call of Duty World at War.

5. Next year I'm probably going to be running track in the spring. My family's trying to convince me to run hurdles and the 100m dash. I'm in training to at least consider doing it. I've thought about it every year since seventh grade, but never went for it.

6. I played the clarinet for a year in fifth grade. Eventually I fell so far behind in the class and couldn't learn to read music fast enough that I had to quit. The clarinet was not in my top three choices of instruments when I took band. I wanted to play the flute, but they said because of my mouth structure it would be impossible for me to play.

7. The first horse I ever remember riding was an old brown grade (mutt) gelding named Whittemoore. He was owned by a friend of my father. We went over to his house one day, he gave me a tour of the barn and asked if I wanted a ride. I said yes. It was just a short walking ride around the fields, but I was hooked. Prior to that day, I'd been afraid of horses. I've been crazy about them ever since.

And now I have to pass this on to 15 bloggers. But since the rules are more like "guidelines" than actual rules (I am a big fan of Pirates btw), I'm going to pass it on to seven. Also because I tried to do this at midnight last night and I couldn't think of 15 bloggers out of the top of my head that hadn't already received the reward.

Oh - you got one from me too. But I failed at the rules off letting you know :)

LOL @ your mouth structure. that seems really weird.

And being a morning person is definitely over-rated :)
