Bloggers PhotoMy Bio
Hello and thank you for stopping by to check out my bio. I recently moved to Southern CA from beautiful Victor, CO-Population 450 Elevation 9696 and I'm lovin' CA. The weather is lovely and the people are divine for the most part.

My husband and I won a car on Let's Make a Deal.  If you'd like to see our it is...

I have been married to my wonderful husband, KJ, for 13 years now.  We have a great Siamese cat, Tiki (named after Tiki Barber-Retired Giants RB).  And, yes, I love football-Go Broncos!!!

I decided to type out my “official” bucket list.  Some of the items on the list are…

*Go skydiving
*Jog a mile without stopping
*Watch a live fight (boxing) in Vegas
*Perform a standup comedy act
*Go to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
*Volunteer at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving
*Memorize the symbols of all elements on the periodic *Pay for a random person's groceries
*Learn to belly dance
*Play one $500 hand of blackjack
*Come up with my own personal theme song
*Jump into a pool in an evening gown and stilettos

I joined poetry soup because I love poetry and I also had a goal (on my list) to win at least 3rd place in a poetry contest.  Thanks to Paula Swanson, I was able to cross that one off with a 1st Place win in her Yard Sale Contest.  I decided that since the poetrysoup gang is so warmhearted, I wanted to hang out here for good :)

Poetry Soup 'Just For Fun' Year-End Awards…Most Likely To…Please VOTE!!!

Blog Posted:11/22/2011 4:14:00 PM

Poetry Soup Year-End Awards…Most Likely To…Please VOTE!!!

So I thought it would be fun to have some year-end Poetrysoup awards….sort of like yearbook superlatives.  

 *I’m not a fan of the traditional superlatives such as ‘most likely to succeed’, ‘best smile,’ etc.  Those are LAME!!!  So, these are spiced up a little.  Please vote for two people for each category.  You may do so publically in this blog or soupmail me if you don’t want to go on record publically.  I will keep your votes confidential.  You have until noon on December 20, 2011, to get your votes in.  I will then compile the winners and announce them on Wednesday, Dec. 28, so you can think of it as a late Christmas present of sorts but without the ribbon J

 *If it is too long for soupmail, please PM me to ask for my regular email address…or you may use more than one soupmail message-whatever you’d like J

 Have fun with it!  We are all good sports here at the Soup!

1. Travel Buddy Award:  Who would you most like to go on a trip with?

2. Rally Buddy Award:  Who would you most like to sit next to in the slammer after a protest?

3. Final Words Award:  Who would you most like to give your elegy?

4. Duct Tape Award:  Who would you least like to give your elegy?

5. Johnny Cochran Award:  Who would you most want to see represent you in court? “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”

6. Betty Crocker Award:  Who would you most like to cook you a yummy meatloaf?

8. June Cleaver Award:  Who would you most like to adopt as your second mom?

16.  Enron Award:  Who is most likely to have their business shut down by the government?

17. Really, Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid Award:  Who is most likely to start a cult on accident?

18. Jobs Reincarnate:  Who is most likely to be the next Steve Jobs (RIP Steve J)

19.  Opps I did it again:  Who is most likely to be caught with Brittany Spears or Justin Bieber on their ipod?

20. Scrooge Award:  Who is most likely to think this is a really bad idea? J

    Andrea-Thank so much for your votes-LOL I also have you and Joyce for #15-You know Andrea, I already have so many votes that I can't change it now or add...but maybe you or someone else can do some more of writing haikus, pretty words, unique poems, and they could be funny too.."Poet who would write a poem that would be used as evidence in court" or "Most likely to enter every contest" That sounds fun-I would participate if you did something like that! :)

    and what's with me and the cops, Frank? I can't get one damn cop in Utah to let me off the hook. The only thing here I qualify for on this list is cooking and traveling! Natalie,you should do awards for pretty poetry or something because I would love to have included other friends here like Michael, Charlotte and Vienna for example!

    CHRIS AND NATALIE, It is so hard NOT to laugh out loud, here, and my girl is sleeping- and I want to keep it that way, for just a tiny, quiet bit. COUNSELOR CHRIS, now that may just stick, don't you think? Chris, if you read this, it's because of how well you turn a word. And revenge for the whole MONA LISA blog, which I bought, hook, line and s(T)inker, till you finished your thought. I was ready to shake my monitor! I,of course, laughed and shook my head. I wanted to read your blogs about your 'project' exploits, but they made my rambles look SHORT! That is not easy to do, I'll have you know ;-) So, go,go today. Get into law school. You'd ensure that no more David Milgaards ever happen again, chum. For you American friends, Milgaard is an innocent man who spent over 20 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit and when facts came to light, our government dragged their heels over his release. Sometimes, GOOD lawyers do good things, too.

    OK Counselor...I guess we'll let you think about it a little. You would be a good attorney but I think you are a shoe in for another category for sure! :)

    Oh dear Lord. Cyndi chose me for the Johnny Cochran Award. Hopefully that is the only time(wait! Shouldn't I be using reverse psychology?). My Momma said that I could easily become a lawyer/attorney, when I was young, but if I did, I would sell my soul to the Devil for letting a lot of guilty convicts taste freedom with verdicts of innocence :D
