I mean, not that I actually own anything worth stealing. I do have a TV I bought used for fifty dollars. Both my CD players put together probably aren't worth the gas money it would take to cross town to rob me.
There's always my engagement ring, but my marriage has been over awhile now so if you're really that desperate, go ahead and have at it. But, y'know, remember that I'm friendly with strangers, meaning I know a fair number of my neighbors. And (this being Texas) it's likely that one or more of them has a gun. Just keep your paws off my CDs and try not to let the cats out. Or the Doberman for that matter.
I think my camping list goes like this:
- Tent: check
- Lantern: check
- Hole where wisdom tooth used to be gushing blood: check
- Bodily functions conducive to conversations with random strangers in Walgreens: check
- Prediction for thunderstorms: check
I thought I'd tackle some tags before I went, but I'm beginning to see that one at a time might be all I can reasonably handle. I figured I should mostly go with men, since I did all women for the rockin' girl award.
So, going with most delinquent first: I got the Inspirational Blogger Award from DJ Kirkby (Thanks!) and would like to inflict it on:
People in the Sun: This guy inspired me to finally, finally finish my kid music post. Besides, he's just funny.
Total Spender: Another one that inspires me to laugh. Only problem is, lately either his internet or his liver gave out. Maybe both.
Unloaded: People like Ricardo just inspire me. I'd explain, but it would sound hokey, so I'll just leave it at that.
Ms.Q: Ok, so I tagged her twice and she's not male. But as I mentioned above, I had a wisdom tooth yanked out of my head this week and her post about letting go of fear really did help. I gave careful consideration to a full blown panic attack. The words, "I'm not doing this! I'm going home!" actually went through my mind. Then I remembered Ms.Q's post and thought, "I've gotten a belly button ring and had a baby with no anesthesia, both on purpose. This should be a piece of cake!"
Homeless Family's Blog: This is probably the most inspirational in the traditional sense of the award. I don't understand 3/4 of what John has to say, but if you can't be inspired by a blog dedicated to reducing homelessness, probably you ought to stop reading and go see if you can figure out where you last left your heart. Or, go rob my place. Just donate the proceeds from my engagement ring to the homeless, would'ja?
