Beautiful Blogger Award! Thanks Kraney & Jen!

I have been catching up on the blogs today and just saw that I was nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award...wow!

Thanks JEN and KRANEY for the nominations!!! I would post the award here, but my laptop is being difficult...sigh.

* Thank the person who nominated you for this award;
* Copy the award and post it in your blog;
* Link to the blog of the person who nominated you;
* Tell seven interesting things about yourself;
* Nominate seven bloggers and;
* Post links to the blogs of your nominees

Here are the (somewhat) interesting things about me:

1> I work at Harry & David...therefore I have to look at (and resist) free samples of these goodies everyday in the breakrooms:

2> I'm a world traveler...I have traveled to over 35 countries around the world.

3> I am taking Mandarin Chinese language classes...Ni Hao!

4> I have an obsession with In-n-out Burger. SOOOOOOOOO TASTY! But there are no franchises in Oregon, so I haven't had it since being banded. Probably a good thing...

5> I camped out in central Africa (what is now the DRC) for six weeks when I was 11 years old. It was real camping too...no bathrooms (squat behind a tree), bathe in the river (with the hippos), slept in tents, boil water for drinking, etc....a few steps above the conditions on the show Survivor. I feel like I got the "camping" thing out of my system after that trip. Ask anyone who knows me and I am now an official "indoor girl". 4 stars hotels for me! LOL

6> I don't really drink alcohol. It's a taste/cost thing. Some people don't like brussel sprouts, well I don't like alcohol...it's expensive too. I thank my lucky stars this wasn't a battle I had to fight in regards to being banded and the calories in wine/drinks. Kinda ironic as I worked for one of the largest Australian wine producers for 6 years.

7> I'm double jointed in both my pinky fingers and pinky toes. Random...I know.

I would like to pass this award nomination on to all those bloggers in my blog roll (on the right side of the page). They are awesome bloggers!


  1. *Shock* You don't like alcohol lol... actually, that's probably a good thing. No empty calories for you - though how you resist those chocolates amazes me. You are one strong girl!!

  2. ongrats on the award. Your camping trip sounds fantastic...the experience of it. I have never heard of your employer but boy the treats look good

  3. Congrats on your award and thanks for visiting my blog! I'll look forward to reading yours--looks like you've made awesome progress!

  4. OMG you work around all those goodies!!!! I would die!!! Chocolate and sweets are my downfall...You need double , triple congrats for every ounce you loose :-)

    The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
    1. Alcohol
    2. Drugs
    3. Preditory "earning"
    4. Homosexuality
    5. Gambling
    6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
    7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
    Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, The Chinese Holocaust.
    It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
    What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

    Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
    Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
    1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

    The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
    It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
    How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
    The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
    I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. Revelry will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
    In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
    Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles will survive the 1000 years. They will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during Planet Earth's history.
    If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new population, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial element in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.

    Only children go to heaven. By the time you hit puberty it is too late. This is charecteristic of the gods:::Once you realize what you have lost it is too late.
    Now you are faced with a lifetime to work to prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time, getting stoned, "Hiking!", working, etc.
