Recognize, bitches, and pay that shite forward.

So I'm combining two things here.. first off, care of both Jess at not your typical joan of archetypal patterns as well as Vintage Witch/Little Scotia at I Just Got My Poetic License, Loan Me Your Pen! (via the facebook) I'm gonna play along with the Pay it Forward 2011 game.  So how it goes, my understanding of it, is that the first five people to comment will be sent a hand-made gift courtesy of yours truly.  I'm posting this here as well as on my Facebook , but I'm making the Facebook folks click through to here in order to claim their prize, since I'm a hard bitch like that. 

Ready?  annnnnnd Go! (take a look at the etsy link on the left to get an idea of the weirdness I like to create)

Secondly, I've received my first blog award.  I can stop crying myself to sleep in the fits of jealousy I'm prone too.  Sweet, Sweet Validation. 

Courtesy of Moody at Eccentric Light and Nonsense Shadows, I've been granted this lovely award here:
Rules state that I've gotta share five facts about myself, then pass it on to three others.
  1. At the tender age of 11 I went go-carting on my own for the first time.  Not understanding much about the laws of physics and aerodynamics, I promptly attempted a turn at full speed and launched myself into the air over the tire banks and onto the parallel track, falling roughly six feet through the air.  Total injuries: 1 small cut on my pinkie finger.
  2. At 18 I was hospitalized for a month with a double whammy of life-threatening health issues: a massive blood clot in my left leg, as well as a severe bout of colitis that had dropped my hemoglobin levels to about 55.  For perspective, normal is about 120, around 90 is considered 'safe' and heart failure sets in at 45.  Basically the doctors had to get rid of the clot, without counteracting the drugs that were attempting to get me to STOP bleeding. 
  3. In college I played the negligent mother of a gunman in a rock opera loosely based on the Columbine shooting that we presented for local high schools.  I still kind of wish we could have taken that show on the road. 
  4. I have the scariest basement in the world.  Cobwebs, weird dusty jars, dirt walls.. joists that still have bark on them.. scary.  Doesn't even have a real door, it's a trapdoor.
  5. I took up painting on the advise of a really bad psychic.  It was a really upsetting and disturbing reading and I was determined to take something positive from the experience.  Thankfully she was innacurate as she was pessimistic.
Okay, so passing it on...

Here's my picks:

Tyler at Tyler Has Nothing To Say.  I know it doesn't come close to being Saskatchewan's Sexiest Blogger, but it's something.

Sarah at Here & Now - she's usually got a lot of interesting things to say

Sean at SeansJeep even though he never brought any bacon today.

So go forth, and don't forget.. first five commenters.  Free stuff.  From Me!

In other news, feeling sorry for myself because the weather was too shitty to go to a party I wanted to go to tonight.  Feeling like a wimp, but my snow tires don't get put on until tomorrow and knowing me, I'd get into an accident tonight.  Blah.  Stupid Canadian Weather.

  1. Thanks so much for the award! My first one :) And, it looks like I'm the first commenter..... :D But you know I would have commented even without the prize incentive. Have a good night in. I'm having a beer imported from Canada :)

  2. I would sign up for something, but then I attempted to figure out the shipping from Canada (you're in Canada, right?) to where I live... eek. Also, my artistic skills are somewhat lacking, so I would be basically able to give people poetry, erotica or mixtapes.

  3. I know a lot of people who would be thrilled with poetry, erotica and mixed tapes

  8. Congratulations on the award. My own rules state I am supposed to be working right now. I just slipped in for a coffee, so I will check out your links later, when it is dark, but as to style? You have earned credibility in matters of taste, so you deserve it.
