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 clip...here 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 :)



Last Call-Poetry Soup Year-End Awards...only a few days left to vote!


Blog Posted:12/9/2011 9:43:00 AM

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

First, thanks to everyone who has voted.  If you haven't voted yet, you have only a few days left!  Remember, this is just for fun!  I know you guys are all good sports and that makes me very happy!  :)

Below you will find the original blog text...

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?

7. All Things Trivia Award:  Who would you recruit to be your partner in Trivia Pursuit?

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

9. John Hughes Award:  Whose screenplay would you most like to star in?

10. Donald Trump Award:  Who would you most like to go into business with?

11. Herman Who? Award:  Who would you most like to see run for president?

13. Steven Tyler Award:  Who would you most like to ‘rock out’ with at a concert?

15. Jager Bomb Award:  Who would you most like to see do a shot?

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?

    Just trolling the comments lol. I gave up on the Beauty Pageant because of the lack of voter turn out. But, this awards ceremony is much more interesting. Natalie, thanks for filling in the void.
