The good, the bad and the EMBARRASSING!

My dear friend Hannah is having this fun thingy-ma-bob (I never know what to call it! Hehehe...). It's like a giveaway ten times over, a blog party, and just a get-to-know-each-other. There's sweet prizes - if I don't win one, I'm going to be veeeery sad.  (Oh, and I apologize for posting TWICE today - but I had to do this otherwise honestly I would have forgotten)

AND! Before I go any further, my hemoglobin is up to a smashing 11which is fantastic!! Three units of blood raised it six degrees. SO awesome. And get this (just have to brag about my misfortunes a liiiitle more): if I hadn't come in when I had, I would have gone into a coma. A COMA. That is so freaky.

Okay, now, before I start rambling about something else, I will return to the thingy-ma-bob. Planting Chums. THERE! Finally got the name. Hehehe. I'm supposed to give you four things about myself. This is going to be boring for those of you who have followed my blog for a while - but for those awesome new followers, read on. :-)

1. I love those little kid shows, like Backyardigans (though the characters confuse me...what's a moose doing, riding a horse?).

They make me feel so nostalgic. Plus they have plots that require no thinking whatsoever - so that's always nice, right?

2. I am terrible at board games. Or any kind of games.

I cannot win anything. I can't even win War because I'm so unlucky. I always get the 2s and the 4s. Never the Jokers. But games are different from SPORT games. I'm so competitive there, whereas with other games, I couldn't care less. Anything with a ball and two teams and a field just gets me going. :-)


3. I cannot fake an accent to save my life. Anything that I try to accent comes out sounding half-British half-lunatic.

It's true. Ask my siblings.

4. Sometimes I am VERY overdramatic (not to mention I exaggerate everything and say "like" aaaaall the time).

My dear friend and I were reading one of our old chats once when we got into a big fight - and I was SO overdramatic it was not even funny (actually, it WAS really funny :-). I would show you some of the things I said but it's really embarrassing. Haha. I'm laughing just thinking about it. Okay, I'm probably going to regret showing you this, but look (me =  me, obviously):
me: you know what, im DONE with talking to you. just LEAVE me ALONE!
And we were literally fighting over the LITTLEST thing. It was HILARIOUS. And believe me, it got worse.

Haha. We've had good times and we've had bad times.

Haha, talk about over dramatic. Glad your hemoglobin is back up.

Hannah said...

No thinking plots are good sometimes. Sometimes. Not like fluff Disney shows, but simple, innocent, cute little kid shows. They're so sweet. <3

HAHAHAHAHHA! Man, yeah, you showed me some of those chats and they were so funny. We had a good laugh over those. ;-)

And about your hemoglobin...I know! So awesome, girlie! I was so glad to hear that. Hmm...now how to get mine DOWN...any suggestions? Lol. ^-^

I like board games (especially QUELF--LOVE it) but I don't really have a win/lose profile. Y'know....yeaaah.

And next time I see you, you are SOOOOOO gonna be talking in an accent for me. Got it? HA! ^-^

Love ya!

Whoa! Coma! That is freaky! Glad your hemoglobin is back up.

Fun facts, Bekah!

Izori said...

I'm glad you're better!

Funny post, btw. I'm terrible at strategy and timed games, but I'm pretty good at 'luck' games. Like Yahtzee.

Lindsay said...

How fun, Bekah! All of these were new to me, since I haven't been following your blog for that long. I can't quite figure out why it took me such a ridiciulous amount of time to come and follow you. It really is a mystery to me.

HAHAHA... I just have to say this: Whenever I try to fake an accent, I sound SO WEIRD! It's not even funny. Okay, so maybe it is. I know my siblings get a kick out of it. :D

Hope you're having a fabulous Friday, Bekah!!

~ Love,
Lindsay

I can talk in a fake accent. Australian, British, Scottish... you name it (as long as it's not a different language) I can do it. =) I love mimicking characters' voices from movies. That's fun! =D

Dramamtic? I am too! :P My mom calls me the Drama Queen o' the house. ;)

Love,
Eldarwen

Hey Bekah!
Don't worry, I can't fake an accent either. Me and my sister try sometimes and end up laughing at each other because we sound so ridiculous! :)

Oh, I'm so glad you're feeling better and that your hemoglobin is up to that "smashing 11" ^_^! I've been thinkin' aboutcha bunches! :)

Maybe see ya tommorrow? :)

Loves,

Melody said...

Ah, I'm bad at faking accents too. And I would so love to be able to just talk in an English accent all the time (I know someone who can, and it's AWESOME)!

I also wanted to let you know that awarded you! :)

A coma?? Yipers! I'm glad you're doing better!


Hee hee, I love the one about speaking in an accent. (My sister is the same way as you, but don't tell her I said that. *shifty eyes*) I looove speaking in an English accent, but it requires a lot of listening and practice. Jolly good show, what what? :)

Cheerio!

I awarded you: http://thefaithfulelvenprincess.blogspot.com/2010/05/awards.html

HAHAHA! Oh my word Bekah, I love you! Just so you know...I LOVE the Backyardigans! As a matter of fact, I used to watch it like every Saturday morning (when I say "used to" I mean when I was about 14 or 15), and my family did not get it. My little sibs didn't even like it that much...I just like it for some strange unexplainable reason. It's just so....charming!

lol. Yeah, I can't do an accent either. It is funny though, because my mom sounds Chinese whenever she's trying to do any accent. One time, years ago, we were reading a book as a family that took place in World War II. So, she was trying to do a German accent, and we couldn't stop laughing, because she sounded Chinese all the time!

Oh, I say "like" all the time too. :P I think that's pretty normal....my dad gives me a really hard time about it though. I'm not known for being dramatic, but I'd say I probably am just dramatic enough to be annoying. ha! Overdramatic people are just plain funny though! So, at least you've got the upper hand there. :D

Sports? Sports make you competitive? Blegh. haha. :D I can't say I've ever really played sports, because they do not entertain me at all. As a matter of fact, I couldn't tell you the rules of any sports game. Call me an artsy fart, but sports are just not my thing! =P

By the way, congrats on learning vibrato!!!! That's so awesome! I had to teach myself how to do vibrato, because once I hit 3 years and hadn't learned it yet, I just thought it was ridiculous! I'd wanted to use vibrato since day one. I was telling my mom and dad in the car that you were learning it, and dad reminded me about all the times I told him how badly I wanted to learn it. haha. :D It is so fun once you have it down like it's nothing though, because at that point, it's like you've reached a new level. That's a TOTALLY awesome feeling!

As far as teachers goes...my current teacher isn't slow, but she does stress the importance of every note being perfectly on pitch, as yours does. I like that though, because I'm never perfect, but it helps me work harder to get to that.

Oh, and third position! Yay! That was also a big step for me. Once you learn third, all of the other ones just kind of pop into place. I think I've done all of the positions at this point, but I still struggle quite a bit with the higher stuff. Practice makes perfect! :)

Keep up the great work, Love! It'll pay off! Oh, and I would simply adore it if you would post a video of yourself playing. :)

Have a wonderful Sunday! Oh, and long comments are the bestest. ^_^
