Happy Saturday everyone! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. If you have not had a chance to sign up for the Book Extravaganza book giveaway I have here for the weekend, please do so – great reads available, not only here, but if you click over to Bookworming In The 21st Century you will find links to many more blogs that are doing giveaways this weekend….
AND…. even if you have already signed up, grab a cup of coffee and come back and read through the responses to my request on that post for people to share little known facts about themselves! Some of them are funny, some surprising, and some amazing! We used to ask that question as a “get to know you” ice breaker when I worked at Wal-Mart and it was fun to learn what people had experienced.
Did you know that some of the fellow book bloggers are twins? Published? Singers? Related to Henry VIII? Extra in a movie? Cheryl Crow’s roommate? And much more…..
I felt a little left out that I couldn’t play on my own question so I will do it here.
- When I was 14 I fell off a friends horse on the highway by her home and hit my head. I was airlifted to Minneapolis and my mom was told I had a 10% chance of living and if I did live I would be in a hospital the rest of my life with severe brain damage. I was in a coma for 6 days. The night before they were going to do surgery to relieve the pressure around my brain, the swelling started going away on its own.., I came out of it 100%, but of course my friends like to sometimes say I didn’t and ask me if I hit my head or something…LOL.
- I have been to Honduras 8 times since 2004 working with kids who live on the street or in the dumps.
- I can do a really good Smeagol (voice) impression. Perhaps this is all due to the first fact I gave you. 😀
Anyway – I ran out and bought a book yesterday which is completely insane (and again, see fact #1), but I read an awesome review and I was just not in the mood for the book I was in so instead started Seven Year Switch and I almost have it finished.
I have a bridal shower to attend today and hope to take a bike ride this afternoon. There is a really yummy sounding recipe in the book I am reading (actually several good recipes) and I think I am making it for dinner tonight. Hope your Saturday is full of fun things! 😀
