Shit You Should Know

I Got A Golden Ticket!

I got a golden ticket. Well, it’s actually more silvery but it’s metallic and sparkly all the same. Bryan over at Nuclear Headache has deemed me worthy of head trauma this award. Thanks, Mr. White. I hope I make you proud.

Now for the rules…I hate rules.

1. Link back to the jerk that gave you the award. (Karma is a bitch, Bryan. I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little blog too. Wow!  I'm corny.)

2. Share eight things about myself. (There were seven but odd numbers make me uncomfortable. I guess I’m a snob like that...or a nut.  You make the choice.  Oh, well. Either way...BONUS!)

3. Punish ten other bloggers I'm currently following. (I’m bringing you all down with me!)

4. Let them know that you have passed this curse on to them. (And don’t pretend that I haven’t just left you a comment on your blog telling you, bitches!)

Ok. On with the show…

1.) I have been married almost 12 years (end of May). Yes, that’s right. There is a man out there that can put up with my unique form of craziness…deploying to the Middle East every so often also helps.

2.) Although I am generally anti-religion, I have read the Bible from cover to cover about 3 times in my life by my own choosing. As an old piece of literature, I find it interesting. I have read the New International Version (NIV), the King James Version, and the American Standard Version. I wish I knew Hebrew and Aramaic so I could read non-translated versions. I own many books on world religions and I am very interested in reading more. Humanity's need for faith is what intrigues me.

3.) When I go to sleep at night the bedroom, the bathroom, and closet doors all must be closed or I can’t fall asleep. I think it is a childhood habit I’ve never been able to shake.  Maybe there are owls in there.

4.) When I was in high school, I was president of the drama club and I played Alice in Alice in Wonderland.
5.) I have never been outside of the United States. It is a sad, sad life that I lead. However, before I see other countries I want to see more of my own country.

6.) I love camping and I wish I could do it more.

7.) I was Girl Scout for six years as a child and I am tickled that my daughter has continued the tradition.
8.) I read A LOT of zombie books and I watch A LOT of zombie movies. I am not ashamed!

Now I’m supposed to pass this on to 10 other bloggers that I keep up with. HA, HA! Suckers!

Debbie @ No Filter Mom
She’s a trip and she likes lists so this is right up her non-filtered alley.

Tiffany @ Shhhh! Just Between U & Me
This will be a fun welcome back award for when she gets back on the blogging boat.

Mother Theresa @ The Rain in Spain...
My only rule is she can’t give it to Erik…because Erik gets everything! (Just kidding, MT!)

Smart Ass Sara @ Welcome to Sara's Organized Chaos
She always comes up the craziest shit. I look forward to reading her list.

Jewell @ Really?! Wait! What?
She’s my shiny new friend and that makes her eligible for a kick ass award from me.

Kamilla @ Basket of Dreams
She’s silly and I enjoy following her American adventures. I wish I knew Tagalog so I could read her Philippine blog.

Tanya @ A Taste of T
Thought Bubble Thursdays are enough to earn her this shiny award.

Jacky @ Life And My Craft
This girl has got skills with that camera. I enjoy looking at all her shots.

Doris @ Sprinkles of My Life
She was always fun, going way back. I enjoy keeping up with her “sprinkles” in Italy.

Cat @ Zipbag of Bones
She’s hysterical and I don’t remember where the hell I found her but I’m glad I did.

Now apparently, I must be a closet feminist considering I just dished this bad boy out to 10 women. Oh well. I look forward to reading all of your blogs when you guys finally brag post about your super spectacular award.

Oh and by the way…happy freaking Valentine’s Day. If you are getting laid tonight, I fucking hate you. That is all.


  1. I am the same way with the doors, the lights behind said doors also have to be out. My hubby teases me to no end for this one!!

  2. Hey mother of all loveliness! thanks for the award.. although I already had this award,.I would not fail to grab this award still :)

    Anyway.. you what?! Read the Bible cover to cover? WOAWW! That's pretty amazing... I just read Ecclesiastes and Proverb I think. Hahah..

    And Wow... your the preseident in drama club. I always have my love in drama clubs... but I hate our professor on that clubs..who usually choose people who are jack of all trades.. I know how to act..but I don't know how to dance and freaking sing!!


  3. Congrats on the award :). Wishing you a happy Tuesday. New follower.


  4. haha, that picture of you is sooo cute.

  5. You make me laugh! Thanks for the award and making me create yet another list of bullshit about myself ;)

  6. Hi. I am a new follower from the Tuesday Train and you are a funny person. I like the Q and A and will check out some of the bloggers you recommended up above.


  7. Oh yeah, baby! These things are like scoring a free ride to the liquor store, getting handed a free bottle of schnapps, and then stumbling upon a vibrator (hermetically sealed) in the sidewalk.

    That is to say, these things are easy.

  8. Congrats on the award, Asha! You do a great job with your blog here. I am now following you thanks to Follow Me Back Tuesday and it would be so nice if you could share the love back on my blog:)
    And don't forget to check our new Blog Tutorial to learn a few easy tricks to make your blog fabulous. See you there! Happy Tuesday!

  9. I followed the link from Bryan to you. In all fairness, you can't be mad at Bryan for pushing this award on you since I gave it to him in the first place. You can't be mad at me, either, since somebody gave it to me.

    I like your blog though, and not because the background is the same as mine. And I do the same thing with the doors. I feel like something is watching me in there if they aren't closed.

  10. @Chanel Oh, great! Now I'm going to have to track this award giver person down. lol No, I'm not mad at him. I truly appreciate that he thought of me. Also, I think you like my blog MORE because we have the same background. ;)

  11. Congrats on your award!

    New follower from the blog hop.

  12. I'm Back!! Lol =) Thank you so much Asha, this is a great surprise to come home to. I am going to go post it right now.

  13. Hey, you guys do have the same background.

    That's three times more than most religious people.

    Alice; yeah, I can see that.

    I have a thing about being in the bathroom with no lights on after hearing some kids talk about one of know "Bloody Mary" things or whatever it's called, when I was little. It's stuck with me. I really don't like any dark room with a mirror.

  14. Maybe I do. But you can't prove that.

  15. Congrats on your new award! So, you're stylish, huh? Cool! I'm your latest follower from FMBT. Nice to meet you. Hope you're having a great day, and it looks like you are! Hope you can stop by me when you get a chance.

  16. Thanks for joining Good Friends Just Click! I'm GFC following. Hope to see you next week!

  17. Thanks SO MUCH for the award! I'm so glad you like Thought Bubble Thursdays. They always make me laugh :).


  18. I'm curious. How about the holy books of other religions? Ever studied those? And the Kama Sutra doesn't count.

  19. @Doug I've never actually read any of the others. I've only read about them and watched documentaries about them. I have read Tao Chi (not sure if that actually counts) before but since it was translated I fear that lots of true meaning gets lost. I plan on reading the Bhagavad Gita soon.

  20. Thanks for visiting and following my blog: Reasons to Skip the Housework. I'm following you back!
    Melanie :)

  21. Following from Thirsty Thursday Blog Hop, you can follow back at :)

  22. I am with you on the doors. Must all be closed before sleeping. You are so funny and those pictures are adorable!
    I am visiting and following from Tag Back Tuesday (Yes, I do no it is Thursday..I'm thorough)

  23. Lolz good post. Nice picture :)
