You like me! You really like me!

I was just recently notified by S.C. Flynn that I have been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award.  Imagine my surprise!  Thank you, Mr. Flynn!  This month marks my one year anniversary of this blog.  I’m not even sure that what I’m doing could be considered as real blogging.  I’ve never learned how to do it properly, I just created a WordPress Blog and started writing about stuff I like.  I still really have no idea what I’m doing.


 

I believe it is at this point where I need to tell you a few tidbits about myself…

  1. I grew up on a dairy farm in western Montana, a child of the 70’s/80’s.  Mornings started at four a.m. and the day ended around nine p.m..  I hated pretty much every moment of it.  I found that reading offered a much-needed escape from the shoveling of manure.
  2. I joined the U.S. Army, expecting to do my time and get out.  That was briefly interrupted by a little skirmish called Desert Storm.  I’m proud of being a combat veteran.
  3. I spent two years stationed in Germany. The closest town (Bindlach) had been the home of the composer, Vagner.  I used to go to McDonald’s, buy some Pommes Frittes (french fries) and feed ’em to the ducks at the Vagner Estate.
  4. I have absolutely zero interest in sports – any sports (well, except for perhaps Jugging).
  5. I’m not a writer.  I have never written, nor do I plan to ever write, a book.  I get my enjoyment from reading.  A man’s gotta know his limitations.
  6. My fascination for science fiction, more notably that in the post-apocalypse genre, borders on obsession.  Actually, it crossed that border long ago.
  7. I’m not a “people person”.  I have terrible social anxiety.  My best friends are electric, comprised of ones and zeros.

 

These are just fifteen of the many bloggers that I follow and enjoy reading.  I urge you to visit each one of them.  I hope they will post a little something about themselves as I have.  They are all entertaining and some of the most interesting people I have come across…

  3. Damn dude. Thanks for sharing about yourself and the blogs you dig. I’m definitely woefully ignorant of the other PA bloggers on wordpress. Combat veteran, I can’t even imagine. From a man who couldn’t imagine being in the fight to a man who won’t write. . . respect! xD
