Kreativ Blogger Award!

A very special and appreciated thanks to L.G. Keltner for awarding me the Kreativ Blogger Award!  I am honored that you'd give this to me!  You should all check out her blog!

The Rules:  I have to answer ten questions and share ten random facts about myself.


1. What is our favorite song?   That would have to be “Wherever You Will Go” by The Calling – it’s an oldie, but it was the first song that I ever recorded from the radio.  I just love it. :)
2. What is your favorite dessert?   Pumpkin pie!!  I look forward to Christmas and Thanksgiving because that is the only time of year that we have pumpkin pie.  My dad makes it special with ice cream and calls it “pumpkin ice cream dessert”.  It is heavenly.
3. What ticks you off?   People that are inconsiderate or impatient, slow drivers that don’t know how to drive, people that expect you to be perfect Stepford children, people that are judgmental when they don’t know me…. I’ll stop myself.
4.  When you're upset, what do you do?   Ooo… confession time; when I’m really sad I like to give myself a reason for crying so I watch “A Little Princess”, the scene where Sara’s father doesn’t recognize her and she’s screaming “Papa, please!”.  It always makes me cry.  Or I just listen to sad songs. 
5.  What is your favorite pet?   Cat.  I do have a sincere love for beagles, but I am definitely a cat person.  They are so funny!
6.  Which do you prefer, black or white?   Blue. :)
7.  What is your biggest fear?   That’s a difficult one.  I’m not sure if it would be never getting married, being put in a room of spiders, or never being able to write.
8.  What is your attitude?   Normally I’m a pretty positive and funny person. :)
9.  What is perfection?   Something that the Borg from Star Trek want.  I’m fine without it.
10.  What is your guilty pleasure?   That would have to be “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” on ABC Family.  The plot is so stupid, but I keep watching.

Ten Random Facts about Me
1.  I’m addicted to “The Lord of the Rings”.  I love all of them and I have the extended editions and the trivial pursuit board game.  I’m pretty hard to beat. ;)
2.  I also love NCIS.  (The season cliffhanger about killed me!  Gah, so awesome and scary!)
3.  I used to cheat in P.E.  I would run the mile by myself because I didn’t like running with the class and I’d only ever run 3 laps of the track instead of four.  Bad Krista.
4.  I love Star Trek.  I actually have a stuffed beagle named Porthos.  (Bonus points if you understand!)
5.  Once, I dated identical twins.  Yes, identical.  Just not at the same time.  One for a week and the other for eight months.  Weird, yes.
6.  I ran away from home when I was two-years-old because my mother wouldn’t take me to the store with her.  I made it to edge of the trailer court we were living in.  My mom found me sitting under a tree in a diaper, playing with a kitten.
7.  I broke my wrist roller-skating on black ice when I was five.  My sister told my mom that I’d get in trouble if we told her.  So… we told her that we were doing side-walk chalk and I hid my broken arm for two days.  She didn’t find out until 15 years later that we were roller-skating.  Best kept secret.
8.  I still write letters by hand to two of my friends while they are at college during the school year.  I love hand-written letters.
9.  Sometimes I create families in the Sims 3 and make them cheat on each other. They can’t always be happy? Bad, bad Krista.
10. Things I wanted to be as a kid – astronaut, Captain of a spaceship, teacher, and writer.  I’m just a writer. :)  I get motion sick in the car; I could never be an astronaut.  Though if we ever develop warp drive, I’m definitely going into space.

Hope you liked my random things!  Now I am going to give the award to 7 fellow bloggers!

  2. I love that you named your stuffed Beagle Porthos. Such an under appreciated character in the world of Star Trek.

    If you think about it you get to be everything you wanted to be when you were a kid and so much more. You're a writer...you can do it all through the characters you create. :)

    Great answers,
    Michelle :)

    1. I hadn't thought about it like that, Michelle. I can still be an astronaut. I'm a writer. We can be anything we want. :)

      Thanks Michelle!

  7. I just watched that scene from A Little Princess that you had on another of your blog posts, and it made my cry! I love Lord of the Rings too, and you're not the only one who does that on the Sims...sometimes you have to make bad things happen to them, to keep things interesting! :)

  11. great stuff to learn about you--very entertaining!

  12. Silly, Krista. I love Beagles. And I wish I'd have cheated in P.E. classes. I always felt awkward in those classes. Plus, the ball always hit me in the head. Still does. Me and sports DO NOT get along. At All!

    1. Lol, thank you Julia! I was always awkward in PE too. And I got hit in the fall all the time too!

  13. Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it on! :) As you saw, I already got it, but now it's doubly special since you passed it on too. I wanted a dog named Porthos for the longest time too. He was one of my favorites in Enterprise! I love hand-written letters as well. I still mail people even if very few people ever write me back. I know how it makes people's days to get fun mail and a stamp costs so little. :)

    1. You are very welcome! :) Porthos is definitely one of my favorite characters... well, next to that southern hottie Trip. :) I love making people's day by giving them hand-written letters. They are so much more personal. :)
