"You're An Inspiration"

I earned another award--the same one!!--in merely a day!! Wow.... This may sound weird, which I am, so that is okay, but I'm feeling like some celebrity right now who prepared her speech for one award alone!! One. Not two!! No. Never in my wildest dreams would I have expected two!! Never. Not that I even prepared a speech....

I would like to thank: http://bernertails.blogspot.com/ for not only passing this award onto me, but also encouraging my earning it twice!! I feel deeply humbled and grateful!! Deeply humbled and grateful. You are going to receive a little bit of "friendly payback" from me....


Now, the challenging part. Passing this award onto 15 inspiring Bloggers!! Only I am going to rebel and break their rule!! Because I do not have 15 Blogging Friends left!! But first, I am supposed to:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.

Thank-you jessej of http://bernertails.blogspot.com/ !! I feel honored that you would think of me as inspiring!!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

1. Most of my childhood friends growing up were oddballs.... Weirder than me, even!! I wonder if any of them influenced my character....? Hmmm.

2. I am infatuated by middle-aged male celebrities. Currently, it is Robert Downey Jr.  I know, right? I am 28, he is 47!! My "Avengers" infatuation should be Chris Hemsworth with his blue eyes, blond locks, and muscular body. I know, I know!! But I love RDJ's facial wrinkles, expressive brown eyes, and silver hair....

3. I was born with a condition called Wolff Parkinson White, which caused an accelerated heart rate. It literally tried to leap out of my chest!! At age 18--ten years ago!!--this condition was surgically repaired, and I am now "cured"!!

4. I was quite the devious troublemaker as a little girl. I used to eat both home-made and store-bought Play-Doh. Plus crayons. I loved the salty taste of home-made play dough, but its store-bought competitor was not good at all!! And crayons? I do not recall what they tasted like!!    

5. My right hand ring finger is, probably a half an inch shorter than my left hand ring finger. It's deformed. This hand only has three knuckles. I can settle my chin into its gap!! This was not a birth defect.

6. I love moths. They are such fascinating creatures, with unique wing designs!!

7. Hardly anything grosses me out!!

3. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire. (Or less than that!!)

Thank-you for the comment!!
And, you're welcome!! ;)
I definitely feel like I've earned this award.... ;-D
I understand about wanting to stay off of computers during hot temperatures.... This electronic machine that I am sitting on pours out so much heat during such seasons!! ;-]
Take care and stay cool!! ;op

Suka said...

Well congratulations again! What a great surprise! Two days in a row is very impressive! And again, love your "7 Things" list, so interesting! Nothing wrong with middle-age celebrities, especially when they are the likes of RDJ! Personally, I am into Colin Farrell right now. :->

[I just wrote you a comment on yesterday's post, where you awarded Suka and I, in case you did not see it yet.]

Suka and K....
Thank-you for the comment!!

Yeah, what is it about Robert Downey Jr. that I find attractive anyway? Is it because he is handsome? Or do his big brown expressive eyes have anything to do with my infatuation? Is it because he is cute? Or are his facial expressions attractive? Is it because he overcame addictions? Or do his mannerisms catch my attention? Is it his facial wrinkles and silver hair that get to me? Who knows!! ;-}
Well, it's getting late, I need some sleep, and my energetic cousin is coming over tomorrow morning!! ;op

Alison said...

Raelyn said...

Alison....
Thank-you!! I'll accept this award as soon as I have time!! ;)
But. Uh, question. When accepting this award, are there any specific requirements? Such as questions to answer? If any? Or the sum of Blogging Friends to present it? Just wondering!! ;op

KSO said...

Ruby said...

Congrats on all your awards! I also liked that you had to share seven things about yourself. I actually learned new things about you- and I would say I know you pretty well! I will have to look at your ring fingers next time!

Raelyn said...

Ruby....
Thank-you!!
Fourteen. I earned the Very Inspiring Blogger Award twice.... And accepted them both in merely one day!! So, I had to come up with fourteen things about myself!! Fourteen!! It was insane.... Yet so much fun!! I almost want to list seven weird, interesting, and real things about myself again!! Insanity can be fun!! ;op
