I got an award!
Like I told You yesterday I got an award from Joyce at Octoberfarm, The Versatile Blogger and I thank her for that 🙂 I don’t mind getting awards but I always hae big troubles giving them away, many doesn’t want them and all the blogs I read are favorites of mine in some way otherwise I wouldn’t read them 🙂 🙂 So instead of chosing I’ve sort of made a lottery of the giving away thing 🙂 Now I’m supposed to write seven things about me that is quirky and that isn’t as easy as it might sound, what is quirky for me may be common sence for someone else 🙂 🙂 🙂
I’m afraid of balloons! I just can’t stand them and I am prepared to hit anyone coming close to me with a balloon 🙂 🙂 🙂 The ones with helium gas in them are the worst and I think I have to blame my mother for this 🙂 🙂 She mistook helium for hydrogen wich is highly explosive and once told me that they could explode in my face 🙂 🙂 (I think she was thinking of Hindenburg 🙂 🙂 )
I rarely get up later than 5 am, more often earlier than that. I hate to miss any of the little sunlight we get here during the half-year we have late autumn till early spring and it is just fantastic to get up that early in summer before the rest of the world does 🙂
I can’t stand strong perfumes and I remember back in the days when I was running a lot and ran after someone with lots of perfume or aftershave, it actually made it difficult to breathe! So I did what I could to pass them as quickly as possible. I also get headache from it.
I’m a language snob. I have big problems being quiet when people I talk with don’t know the meaning of the word they use or when they write swedish in an english way, quite common now days. Like an ad I saw some months ago about black labrador puppies, they wrote it in an english way: Labrador puppies black, but if You write it that way in swedish You actually write that You are selling labrador and puppies and blacks, not the same is it.
I was supposed to be a two egg triplet 🙂 But the identical one never developed as he should and tiny parts of him had to be removed surgically when I was around 19. The third one miscarried and that is how they found out my mother was pregnant 🙂
I’m ambidextrous and most probably born that way. It showed when I broke most things in my right arm ( took the doctors over six hours to get that arm right again) when I was six years old and had no problems switching to the left hand. The only thing is that when I write with my left hand I do it better backwards and mirrored 🙂
When I bought my sailboat I had no idea how to sail 🙂 The one teaching me sat in his own sailboat shouting to me what I should do for an entire week while sailing in the archipelago outside Gothenburg 🙂 🙂 He was a fanatic sailor so he never allowed me to use the engine, so when one day had to I didn’t understand how to do it 🙂 🙂 It ended with me crashing in to a floating jetty 🙂 🙂
And here are the ones that I pass this award to:
I would really give it to all blogs I read but the rules says five. I won’t feel offended if You don’t want this award 🙂 Today is sunny and rather cold, a nice change to the fog we’ve had these last days (or is it weeks 🙂 )I sat up sleeping most of the night because the coughing started as expected yesterday evening. It worked quite well but I can’t say that I’m especially alert this morning 🙂 🙂
The cold air made me feel so much better while we were out walking to get my morning paper, the brain sort of came back to its real size and my nose got less stuffed, but that naturally changed as soon as we got in again. Perhaps I should sleep with my head in the freezer tonight 🙂 🙂 🙂 Tea with lots of ginger and honey helps the throat to feel less bad so I guess it’ll be a lot of that today 🙂
Have a great day!
