Happy compilation

Beautiful Blogger Award

Today, while waiting for my software to be compiled at work, I took a moment to read my personnal emails. Imagine the surprise when I saw Diresinger @ Shadowed paths posted on my blog to announce me that I have had an award bestowed upon me.

With most award, comes rules to follow and this one is no exception. Here are the rules of the award:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award.

    Thank you Diresinger, you made my day! "C'est très gentil de ta part!" I have even lost my english ;-)

  • Share 7 things about yourself.

    1. I'm an addict of Little Debbie's Oatmeal Creme Pies;
    2. Although I'm mostly into metal music, I realize recently I like electronica and jazz music too.
    3. I'm a big fan of martial arts. I've been practicing Nick Cerio's Kenpo for a few years and was approaching the black belt. But I had to stop all this when I start building my house. I plan to take Kung Fu courses with my little boy when he gets old enough;
    4. I'm a budget freak and a fan of Dave Ramsey's philosophy when it comes to money;
    5. I'm a big fan of Nintendo games, I own all their major console and around 60 games. All of them are classics, of course.
    6. Although I'm a gamer, I don't own a PS3 and an XBox. Anyway, I do not have any room left for another console;
    7. And finally, I'm deaf from the left ear.

  • Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!

    This part may be difficult for me. I've been very busy for a while now so I didn't took much time lately to browse the blogging world in search of wonderful blogs. All the blog I am following, I am following since october 2009, date at which I changed job and began to do some consulting as an Analyst-Programmer in my spare time. For the moment, I'm gonna risk the wrath of the Blogger God and postpone this part until I get to have more time for blogging.

Much deserved award!!!

Intersting...so, I have to ask, what happened to your ear?


PumpkinBrain said...

Thanks Frog Queen!
As for your question. I lost my left ear gradually. When I was a child, I got repeated ear infections due to allergies to dust mites. Some of the infections destroyed my left auditory nerve leaving it almost dead. At the age of 13, my left ear was functionning at 25% of it accuracy and I guess that number have decreased in the last 15 years. But it's not that bad, I still have one good ear and being deft of the left one have its good side. When I need silence to sleep, all I have to do is put my good ear on the pillow ;-)
