Awards to erm...Award

I love you guys SO much that I'm blogging from my desk at work, when I should be down in the break room staring blankly at the wall for 15 minutes.  But I'm slaving away, because you guys are so special to me.

I got another blog award!  My wonderful Critique Partner Colene over at The Journey gave it to me!  (BTW, she is an awesome blogger and finds the most awesome links and pictures, not to mention the most up-to-date news on Harry Potter 7!  Stop by her blog if you haven't already- I swear, you are missing out on some awesome bloggage.)  Thank you so much Colene!

So the rules of this award, is I have to answer this question:
If I had the chance to go back and change one thing in my life, would I and what would it be?

I don't have many regrets in my life.  I'm a firm believer that what happens happens, and you shouldn't worry about changing it.  Everything I've done has led me to the point I am right now, and I like where I'm at.  So if I changed anything- even the bad stuff- I wouldn't have turned out where I am right now.

And besides, time travel is not a reality right now.  So, really I'll just let it up to my future self to go back and change things if I absolutely have to.  Anywho, so I think I would change the way I treated one of my best friends in high school.  I always say this, and I still think about it a lot.  She is one of my best friends now, but we had a little rough patch when we went to Europe with school.  Jut think high school Europe... and you're there. 

Or, I'd go back and not throw away that sports almanac that gave scores from the future thus giving Biff the chance to snatch it up and create an alternate 2010.  Oh wait, that wasn't me...

So, now (I'm changing this up a little to make it fun) I have to give this award out to 5 people I haven't given an award to yet:
Library Gal at Lost In The Library
Lydia Kang at The Word is My Oyster

Go check out their blogs- they're the bee's knees!

Thanks again to Colene for being awesome and getting this award in the first place, and then turning it around to me. 

Next week: stay tuned for a tribute to my all time favorite movie and trilogy in the whole world (hint: I reference to it in this post).  There will also be a special message from the time traveler himself!

Bahaha! That almanac comment cracked me up. You're so welcome my friend! A well deserved award for all your blogginess/awesomeness.

Can't wait for your tribute next week!

That reference makes me happy :-)

Thank you! :)
Europe sounds so fun and dramatic anyway.

Abby Minard said...

Ha, glad you all liked my reference!

And yes, Sam- Europe was so much fun (minus the drama). I went back to London a couple years ago to visit my sister and now I want to go back again- I'm hooked!

Hi. I'm new here ~waves~ Dropped in by way of Brad Jaeger and I liked your post.

Nice reference to one of my favourites... I'll look forward to your tribute-treatment next week! :)

Oooh... and I just saw you like the Dragonriders of Pern series... so totally fantastic! :) (Okay, leaving for now...)

Abby Minard said...

Hi DL! So glad you stopped by- and don't ever feel like an intrusion- I love me some lurkers and commenters!! Yes, Dragonriders was one of the first fantasy series I read as a kid and really made me fall in love with the genre.
