If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Honest Scrap Award!

You know its hard to move forward with awards sometimes...I get busy- bogged down with life and other things I want to post about. But today, I'm posting an award. I have a few days in between before NaNo and thought that would work really well for today's post. So To those I have chosen for the award- please note, it doesn't matter to me if you post it or send it on, I just wanted to recognize you for what you do. :)

So Here is the award:

 Thank you very much Miss Jules @Over the rainbow
If you have never been to this woman's blog you are truly missing out some heartwarming posts. I love her little stories she makes up spur of the moment. She is also one of the sweetest bloggers I know. She's always there when I need a smile.

 The rules are to post 10 things about myself and share this with 7 other bloggers.
 lets see ten things about moi:

 10)I have taken french for three years. The language is so beautiful and I'm sad this is my last semester for it.

 9) I don't click with any specific type of people. My friends range to a broad spectrum. Most of them are older than me, a handful are younger and tend to be guys. :)

 8)I cannot survive without a whole lot going on in my life, preferably good things like projects, but the bad keeps me sane as well.

 7) I collect archie comics and play world of warcraft (I know I'm a girl right?) I have a level 71 blood elf palidin on the horde side that I've been leveling for the better part of three years. LOL

6) I have never wanted to live or move outside of my hometown in wyoming.

5) I despise math and research papers.

4) I quickly get upset when my routines get interrupted by something I was unprepared for.

3) I'm not sure what my sense of humor is- but many friends believe its a myth. LOL

2) I met my manly man at kickboxing and had fun kicking him and sparing with him...hence how we fell for eachother :)

1) My favorite animal is a cat!

 and now for those bloggers I'd like to send this award on to:

~ She has some great reviews and I love her tuesday blogs
Wendy Tyler Ryan @ waiting for Publication
~Her journey in writing has been a pleasure to read.

Laura @ wavy lines
~ If you haven't checked out her writing prompts your missing out

~ This lady is up to date and posts upcoming blogfests

Stina @ Seeing creative 
~ her Friday links are amazing!

~ her comments always make me smile, and she is true to her own writing convictions.

~ He's an inspiration. I met him through the Literary Lab
Have a wonderful Flutterific Friday everyone!

Congratulations on the award! And there's nothing wrong with playing Warcraft. I dig girls who play RPG and computer games.

Elaine AM Smith said...

Good luck when you start the NaNoWriMo - I'm NaNoWraMo-ing this year. Sarah McClung started a Wra-pping it up month. Gotta be a plan for me and my multiple wips - that sounded painful!

Talli Roland said...

Congrats on the award! And to those you've passed it on to. :) I love French, as well.

C. N. Nevets said...

The couple the spars together, har-hars together. Or something.

Cleverly Inked said...

What fun facts! I have no idea what you are talking about with warcraft.

Thank you!!

Summer Ross said...

Cleverly- Its a game online...really huge in the world of gaming people.

C. N. Nevets said...

Also, my wife and I play Guild Wars, so that's not something I'll hold against you either. :)

Summer Ross said...

C.N~ I never could get into Guild wars. I don't play many games. Mostly World of Warcraft and soulcalibur for the x-box.

awesome you guys play together!

Jules said...

Thank you for such kind words, just being me. :) Now a confession. I signed up for french once, prof started spouting strange sounds and to the drop line I went. I do well speaking Hillbilly. :D
Have a good weekend my fairy friend.
Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow

Bravo on the award. And those facts help fill in the blanks. Happy Halloween.

The Words Crafter said...

My husband plays WOW! Lots of girls are into RPG these days. I say good for them!

I, too, think French is a beautiful language. I have't had a class since high school (1983) but I remember a fair amount, :)

And, for the record, cats are the coolest animals!

Congrats on the award and the recipients!

Mason Canyon said...

Congratulations on the award. Enjoy learning more about you. Nothing wrong with girls ruling in the games.

Congrats on your award, Summer!

I lived in Cheyenne and then Green River/Rock Springs for 10 years. I have a lot of fond memories of Wyoming.

Francine said...


Thanks so much for thinking of moi, re above award! I'm thrilled, and shall post it up right away, and shall post 10 things about me on the award page ASAP (set-aside page), which I keep especially for occasions such as this.

Please do check out the award page because I feel sure there's an award lurking there for you too. The Romance award is for anyone who writes even a little romance in their writings, and other awards there for picking up as well. ;)

Re French: If you think about it, so much of the English language is affected by French influence (Normans), and Latin, of course. What a fab idea for a post re French influence in literary prose!


Stina Lindenblatt said...

Thanks for the award. I don't have that one. :D

LOL on #2. That's really cool.:D

And I can related to #4.
