Two awards and a meme

Starting off the awards season is this "thoughtful award" from Ipanema and momoftwo, "for those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping others bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others." Fooled you two, didn't I??? Hahahaha...just kidding. My deepest appreciation to the 2 of you.


I also received the thinking blogger award from
verns. Thanks verns. Although I would have to refute this award because my blog is where turn to and just have fun without having to think. Ahehehe...just look at my previous post and you'll see why.

I'm supposed to give out these awards but since this post is already way overdue, I guess I will have to award these to you, my blog reader/s (so you won't think I'm presumptuous in thinking there's more than one of you....hahaha) for bearing with me especially during those times I wanted to quit blogging due to personal problems. Thank you to all my blog friends. You all deserve this award.

Finally, I got tagged by momoftwo. I'm supposed to mention 8 random things about me which I haven't yet revealed in my posts. Hmmm...it's a tough task but I'll try.

1. I'm a late-bloomer. I had my first ought-to-be forgotten boyfriend at the ripe old age of 24. Fortunately, that forgettable portion of my life didn't last long and I met my (now) husband soon thereafter.

2. I have a sister who's 10 years older than me. Yes, quite a big age difference noh? My parents were not planning on having another child after my sister, but one night they had a misunderstanding, and the rest, as they say, is history.

3. I have the attention span of a 4-year old. Sometimes, 3 minutes into the homily, I would ask my husband what the priest is talking about. I don't know how I was able to survive law school.

4. Like momoftwo, I'm also a crybaby. I cry when I'm happy, I cry when I'm sad, sometimes I just cry for no reason at all.

5. I have a secret not-so-secret-anymore phobia of worms, especially the big varieties. Please don't surprise me with one or I might just accidentally spill that steaming hot cup of coffee on your pants.

6. During high school, I went out on a group date. Among those present was a guy whom I really had a big crush on. We went to McDonald's. Guess what I ordered? Chicken joy. Hehehee...probably the reason why I'm a late-bloomer.

7. What am I supposed to write about??? Ahhh, 8 random things about me.

8. See, there goes my attention span. Maybe I'll rename this tag "6 random facts about me", hehehe.

Anyway, I really had fun with this meme. Thanks momoftwo. I'm not tagging anyone this time.

kyels said...

I love McDo's and sometimes, I order the kids meal because of the toy. Am I a late bloomer too? Nyahaha!

vernaloo said...

Lol... Misunderstanding usually turns out as a great way of making babies.

1st boyfriend at 24? Wow... I got married at 25.

snglguy said...

24?? Talo kita, I had my first gf at 32 who ended up as my ex-wife, wahahaha. :-D

Toe said...

Wow, congratulations! You need to have your virtual cocktail-dress made na. ;)

Ako rin, nag-order na ko ng siopao sa McDo. Ako pa yung nagalit sa tao yung sinabing wala kc bakit sa Kowloon, meron. :)

ipanema said...

lol...i was just talking to a friend the other day and we were talking about worms. I can take it. I used to play with it when I was young. What I can't take is caterpillar! yikes! :)

ladybug said...

mom> You're welcome, I also had fun answering. Kaso nagkulang yung tag...hahaha...hindi ko na kasi alam kung ano ang isusulat ko. :-D

ladybug said...

rowena> Thanks...hahaha. Pareho pala tayo. Hope to meet you too! :-D

ladybug said...

kyels> Thanks! No worries, ordering because of the toy is still quite normal, unless you order loads...hahaha. Problem with ordering chicken joy from McDonalds is that it's a product of Jollibee, their competitor. Grabe, I think I almost died from the humiliation. I think the cashier laughed at me after I finished my turn.

ladybug said...

vernaloo> I guess I'm in good company then. :-D Di bale, it's their loss, not ours.

ladybug said...

rey> Hahaha...I will forever be grateful that my parents fought that night. Otherwise I wouldn't have been born 9 months later. :-D

ladybug said...

snglguy> Speaking of the ex-wife, any developments on the girl you've had your eye on for awhile??? Wala ng hiya-hiya, sugod ka na lang...hehehe.

ladybug said...

toe> Hahahaha....kakatuwa naman yung kwento mo. Pero teka, parang anlayo yata ng siopao sa hamburger? Hehe. :-P

ladybug said...

ipanema> Kanya-kanyang phobia lang talaga iyan. Kakatawa nga kasi nung sunday lang nagluto ako ng hipon, ako pa yung napasigaw nung nagtatatalon yung mga pobreng hipon dahil buhay pa pala sila. Wawa naman sila. Yoko tuloy kainin yung hipon pagkatapos.

Sidney said...

Congrats with your awards! Well deserved!
He,he... interesting facts about you!

ladybug said...

sidney> Thank you very much! :-D

myepinoy said...

Congratulations.

Lani said...

Whew, bigla tuloy akong napaisip, 23 years old lang kasi married na ako, hehehe. Ang aga ko palang bumigay.

Sa sobrang kaba mo kaya naghanap ka ng chicken joy, buti di mo nasabi, isa pa, isa pa, isa pang chicken joy (lol).

ladybug said...

myepinoy> Hahaha..thanks. Hiyang-hiya talaga ako pagkatapos nun. Hindi na kami lumabas ulit. Eh anong magagawa ko peborit ko talaga yung chicken joy? Hehehe.

ladybug said...

lani> Hahaha...normal naman yan eh. Ang hirap nga nitong late na nag-asawa, naghahabol tuloy.

Teka, bigla akong nanakam sa chicken joy ah....maka-order nga.

Senor Enrique said...
