Think of this as the most interesting delurking project you'll ever participate in. After giving back to others at the Celebratory Society, I have decided to participate in it myself. You can understand the project in full by clicking here, but in brief, the Celebratory Society is an online festschrift for a blogger--a way for you to tell me what my blog or actions mean to you. But this isn't about me--this is about you too. And I would love it if you returned to your own blog, started your own Celebratory Society post, added it to the main project list, and gave me the opportunity to tell you about...you. Here is my link to the project:

Yay!!! Award Time!! Got this one from thepunkrockmom so BIG THANKS TO HER!!! The usual rules apply: 7 NEW things about yourself, and nominate those you feel are worthy. (I'M NOT WORTHY!!! -- sorry, Wayne's World moment).
Ugh, having an argument with this post, so I apologize for the weird layout of this post. 7 things...ack, I can do it!
I have been known to eat an entire pound or more of peel 'n' eat shrimp in one sitting. Yumminess. Without coctail sauce or anything. I just REALLLLLLLY like shrimp :)
I don't play video games. At all. I mean, I really don't. Didn't have them growing up, never really learned how except for Su.per Mari.o Broth.ers a long ass time ago, the original, and it was on someone else's system. Game controllers are beyond me. I'd rather read.
The reason I'm a jack-of-all-trades, master of none is that I have zero attention span. I simply get bored to easily and have to give things up for a while and then go back to them.
I got a black eye from a garden hoe once. You know, like in the cartoons where you step on the wrong end and it flies up and hits you in the eye? Yeah, I did that. During a drag show. But I did get to spend a week explaining to people that I stepped on a hoe and got a black eye. They didn't think I meant the garden variety.
Speaking of random injuries, I am also the only person I know ever injured by a ping pong table. Really.
I once held the distinction of being the only 5th grader in the country to successfully score a 100% on some Mathletes type test for PEN class (the gifted program). Or maybe the state. It was a wide area. Important to note that not only did I not manage to repeat that performance, I wasn't even the best overall after that. Pressure = me giving up giving a damn. Even at age 10.
Rather than kill any kind of insect (except perhaps mosquitos and roaches) I will escort them off the premises. ESPECIALLY spiders. They are very important creatures. Well, and they aren't insects, they are arachnids, but you knew what I meant.
Blogs with substance that I nominate (and this is no easy task!):
