And The Award Goes To......

...Me? Oh! Hey! Me! Yay!

Danica thinks I'm talented and for that I get to win an award! Thanks, Dani! Although, I have to say, whatever you've been told? It ain't true. None of it! Seriously, except for that one time.....Just kidding. So as penance for being award worthy I get to amaze y'all with 10 things you might not know about me. That's not really that easy to do without getting overly personal. But I'll give it my best shot.

1. My favourite colour is red. I very nearly shun all other colours except black which goes with red really well and pink, which is really Red's little sister.

2. I wanted to be a lawyer when I grew up. Then I realized law is interpretive and not absolute and knew better than to try to fix the world's problems that way. Then I decided I would become a writer. I sell mortgages. Go Figure.
3. I had my daughter when I was 18 years old and hate the look I get when people do the math and figure out a 31 year old woman has a 13 year old daughter. She is taken care of, well adjusted, lovely and spoiled within an inch of her life. I am with her father and have been since I was sixteen. Take your judgemental eyeballs and have a look in your own closet before you peg me with a stereo type. Yeah, a little passionate about this.

4. I have a growing obsession with all things fantasy. I used to think fantasy was the geekiest thing imaginable. Then my hubby introduced me to role playing computer games, a number of which lean heavily toward the type of D&D Fantasy I like. They lead to reading fantasy and Bam! I'm hooked. Now I proudly let my geek flag fly. Where the hell did you think Eyvi Sprite came from?
5. I couldn't carry a tune if my life depended on it. I wish I could. Because I love to sing. And do, much to the chagrin of my family, at the top of my lungs.
6. I am grossly weak willed but inherently stubborn. How does that happen?
7. I was raised with religion and have abandoned it. I cannot bring myself to rest my fate in the hands of a whatever, for which there is no substantial proof. My faith is broken. I wish it weren't, because the idea of religion is beautiful. Not the good, clean living, that's nice but not what I love. It's the ability to believe. I envy those who do. Those with the ability to free themselves enough to have faith. But I can't do it. I do however, allow my imagination free reign and frequently wonder at the existence of far stranger things than God. I haven't figured out how not to be a hypocrite.
8. I have been to every province east of Ontario except PEI and have never been west of Hamilton.
9. My nickname as a youngster was Piss Ass. Mad Max hated the name my parents chose and called me that instead. On my wedding day, when he told me he couldn't call me Piss Ass anymore, I cried.
10. I don't like fudge. I know, I should be tarred and feathered. Drug out into the street and shot. I can't help it. It feels gross in my mouth and the taste does not make up for that. Not even close.
Wow! That was hard! I hope I have lived up to each of your expectations. If not, I'll try not to lose any sleep (hmm, the sarcastic font is missing on my blog too!)
My nomination? Lainey Bobainey - because she makes me laugh everytime I read her blog and cause she started NWW. It takes alot of guts to tell people to quit their bitchin' even if just for a day.
I'm a wee bit tired now. Maybe I will write about Wednesday on Thursday.
Blogger is making me wonky because it won't leave the spaces I keep putting in! Argh!


  1. Eyvi, you're wonderful and I always look forward to your posts... I can be having a truly lousy day (like this one) and you still make me smile out loud.
    Keep writing!

  2. Ohmygosh, *I* hate fudge, too! It is utterly gross and I can't for the life of me figure out how it's supposed to be an enjoyable food. GACK!

    You're too kind to me, girlie-girl. So, do I get to accept the award and continue being lazy and a slacker or do I have to do the 10 things, too? Hmmm, I may have to make someone accept my award on my behalf if I'm expected to actual work in order to get it...

  3. :)
    You deserve the damned award ... good gawd - anyone who can work here and still laugh hysterically (as we do) has to be creative ... or crazy ... er ... or both :)

    I do not like home made fudge either. It is the nastiest abomination against your mouth ... that has refined sugar in it (to clarify). I do, however enjoy one kind and one kind only. I have only ever seen it in one place and that is the fall exhibition - but it is salt water fudge. It is devine - like silk on your tongue.

    I think I knew everything else. But you are not weak willed - FYI. Far from.

  4. Well, it would appear we have a lot in common. Specifically numbers 2,3,4,5,7 and 10. I also enjoy your musings so keep it up.

  5. Spender - I am so sorry your day is not going well, but it pleases me to no end to know that I was able to bring a little sunshine into. Keep your head up, my friend.

    Lainey - You can be lazy but I would totally love to read 10 things about you. They would undoubtedly leave me in tears.

    Danica - When we stop laughing, the rest of them should look out. In fact they may want to consider sleeping with one eye open, I've had my eye on this little tool at Stabbymart...

    The MGMNT - I hope you don't mind the abbreviation, your handle is tres long. Also, seriously? All those, huh? *Eyvi wonders if her and The MGMNT were seperated at birth*
