Now, for this award, we:
1. Thank the blogger who gave us this award (see above)
2. Reveal 3 random facts about ourselves:
a. I love flashlights. Not only are they handy to have in case of a power outage, but they're just freaking fun. I never knew how many different kinds of flashlights there were until we had a brownout and I was dragged to the Home Depot. Let's just say I walked away with a boatload of things that put out light in very different ways. My favorite flashlights? My Harry Potter and Hermione light-up wands. What? They classify as flashlights...really...they do. *the fact that I swish and flick and say "Lumos" is completely irrelevant.*
b. Single Gal Behavior Alert: Sometimes, when I'm really bored, I'll braid my hair in a bunch of little braids. After a while, I'll take them all out and...ta da...I'll have Daryl Hannah hair, circa Splash!
I loved that movie when I was little, even pretended to fall out of the bathtub with a "fin." My mom knew when she heard a "thud" that I was playing Splash again.
c. Garbage Disposals freak me out. I stand sideways and as far away as I can, press the button, and scoot backwards as quickly as possible. Why? Well, I've had a couple of unfortunate run-ins with them basically deciding to regurgitate all over my face. This is so not ideal for an anti-germ person. Having totally freaked my mom out with the idea of germs covering her skin and/or clothes, she decided to try and "outrun" the spit-up. This, however, proved less than effective when she tripped on her own feet and fell flat on her butt. We heard a little jog, then the squeaky sound of a shoe, followed by a high-pitched, "Oop!" and a thud. One minute, there's mom, standing in the kitchen, and the next it's, "Um, where's mom?" "I'm on the floor!" she laughed. To this day, we all laugh to the point of tears over that one.
3. Pass this award to five fellow bloggers (by far the toughest part...which is why I always add to that)
