Beautiful Blogger....Woooo Hoooo!

Many thanks to Cheryl over at Little Bit Quirky for this wonderful award! Please, if you haven't found her site yet go check her out.



Now  I am to share ten things about myself (or should it be me?) with you. I think that will be a challenge since just about everything about me can be found somewhere on my blog, I'm not known for holding much back. Here we go!

1. Here's one I haven't yet spilled on here.
Last boyfriend before husband was at the time the Secetary of State in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He's now a high ranking national government offical. At the time I didn't know a) he was taking kick backs for protecting El Cartel de Golfo (a major Mexican drug cartel). b) he was married.
2. Along the same lines, I once drove alone through Mexico and just happened to be stopped by the Mexican Army. They had no idea that the "Blonde American" knew exactly what smack they were talking. I pulled out boyfriend's card for them to examine. Suddenly there was a change of heart and I was escorted for the remainder of the drive into Monterrey.
3. When I was two I was in the newspaper for knowing all of the countries on the globe. Caveat was that it was a very small town paper and obviously a slow news day.
4. While most kids grew up with boats and motorcycles in their garages I grew up with airplanes and helicopters in mine.
5. Those lip prints on my motorcycle tank are mine. I kissed it with lipstick and the painter clear coated over them. Guess I can never sell it now. Who's gonna want my lip prints on their bike?
6. I really want to go to Greece.
7. I may have leukemia.
8. I'll get almost anything for my grandkids while telling my kids "you have legs."
9. I hold my kids' feet to the fire and make them actually take responsibility for their actions.
10. The best year and worst year of my life was the year between my mom being killed and my dad dying.

Thank you again Cheryl!

Wait. Did I read somewhere amidst all those lovely, lighthearted things that you might have leukemia? Diva! Talk to me, baby.

Yeah, It's kinda sucky waiting around for someone to actually talk to me about all the tests being done!

Ms. Understood May 23, 2010 at 5:14 PM  

I hope that your tests come back negative. What an exciting life you've had. Cover ups for Mexican drug cartells; helicopters in the backyard??? You sound like you've had quite an interesting life.

Southern Sage May 23, 2010 at 6:08 PM  

Don't wait. You have to make them do the tests. If you wait we might have universal health care in effect and that will be bad bad bad.

Great list!

I should know more on Tuesday as long as the one doctor can figure out how to fax the other doctor!

Interesting? Yes.....more of a roller coaster! lol. I should have sold tickets!

Thanks guys!

Good luck on the Leukemia tests. I hope they come back okay!

I enjoyed reading the rest of your list!

The Bipolar Diva May 23, 2010 at 10:46 PM  

Thank you Cheryl! Right now I'm hoping that it's some of the other meds I'm on that are taking my white blood cell count down so far. The talk of the "L" word scared the heck out of me!

that a lot to handle....hard to turn off worry about the unknown. I'm just getting to know you - enjoyed the honesty of your list. love the name Bipolar Diva - its helps people feel more comfortable discussing mental illness. MENTAL ILLNESS is a medical illness not a character flaw - thanks for putting it out there!

Southern Sage is right; don't wait. Push the docs for testing. My father passed away from leukemia last year. BTW, I like your bike, your leathers, your 'tude.
