Blogger Award and 8 Things About Me

Esther named my blog as one of the 5 blogs for her Blogger Reflection Award.

1. Sunny of Faith and Country has to be my first choice. Like I mentioned once before, she was one of my first blog friends. What I admire about her blog is that she is a young Catholic who loves God and Country. She is a sensitive and kind blogger and her blogging inspires as I hope it inspires young Catholic everywhere.

Now I'm tasked with coming up with 5 who I would like to honor as well. But as usual I'm sort of a cheater so I'm going to add a few more, but I'm going to pair them up so it looks like I only have 5. Too bad I can't just list all the blogs I read, since I've learned so much from all of them.

1. & 2. Esther of A Catholic Mom in Hawaii and Christine of Ramblings of a Catholic Soccer Mom. I know both Esther and Christine from a yahoo group (Catholic Republicans) and they were the ones that really got me into blogging.

3. & 4. Derek of Derek's Word and Lounge Daddy of Lounge Daddy Chronicles. I know both of these nice fellows from message boards (have we noticed that I spend a lot of time online?). Derek from Discussion Forums and Lounge Daddy from Phatmass. They're both going back to school and I just graduated and am looking to go back so I feel like I've learned a lot from both of them, both on their blogs and on the respective message boards.

5. & 6. Ma Beck of WardWideWeb and PhatCatholic from PhatCatholic Apologetics. I love Ma Beck's blog, she's pro-life, Catholic (traditional Catholic too - St. John Cantius woot), and from Chicago, what more could I ask for from a blog? Phatcatholic's blog is incredibly informative. I'm always learning so much on their, and I just love the way its designed.


CGC of Ruminations of a Christian Conservative Geek and Friends tagged me for a 8 Things About Me Meme so here are 8 things about me.

1. I have this French board on my wall, and its become the catch-all for all the stuff I like to save. I'm too afraid to go through it all so it just keeps collecting and collecting and collecting.

2. I have a small statue of St. Michael the Archangel that I keep on the top of my monitor, an icon of him in front of my one speaker, and a glow in the dark statue-esque (ok I don't even know what to call it) of Mary holding baby Jesus on my desk. Among there are some other little things among the junk, but those are some of the nicer pieces.

3. I love anything having to do with the beach and water. I'm a complete sucker for anything related to them.

4. I finally bought a pro-account on flickr so I can upload all the photos I want, instead of being limited to 200.

5. Almost any movie with Jason Statham, Bruce Willis or begins with Rush Hour and I'm there.

6. Somehow I ended up with a mini-collection of Pius XII medals. I have 9. You can find almost anything on ebay.

7. I have 4 calendars 3 of them haven't been changed since June and one I never even put up.

8. I'm a big fan of Babylon 5. The new movie came out a few days ago and I just can't wait to get my hands on it. I get paid on Friday so after that I might order it.

Anything with Bruce Willis...
There's no arguing with that! Yippee kayay [expletive]!

I love your blog as well.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
