“The Lovely Blogger Award”

6 Sep

What to do when you are nominated for a blogger award by a peer? 

Graciously accept of course. Play along. Thank you to Jiltaroo for the nomination. Jiltaroo is a blog by Jenny Parberry, a former “Jillaroo” (which I understand to be an Australian  slang-word for cowgirl) and currently an aspiring writer, a talented painter and a creative soul.

The blogs that I follow are mostly by writers and for writers. I am building a network of interesting blogger friends who are on different legs of the writer’s journey. There are also just a few loons in there to stir up the nest.

Seven Random Things about Myself

1. I have eaten bison, rattlesnake, octopus and crickets.

2. I played hours of Dungeons & Dragons until my mid-twenties.

3. I was a member of honor societies in college and won scholarships yet decided being a bartender was better than attaining a degree and never completed my formal education.

4. I am a confessed autodidact and voracious library patron.

5. The best view that I have ever seen in my life was in Austria and I still wake up from dreams about it.

6. I was a military dependent or “Air Force Brat” and never had a place to really call home until we moved to Oklahoma in 1991.

7. I am a fierce Okie. I love the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team, OU Sooner football, and The Flaming Lips.

    Big thanks for the award. Le Clown doesn’t do awards, but he does enjoy a great deal The Flaming Lips. Best concert he’s ever seen. But I don’t come empty handed. Here’s MY award for you:
