No D Day was introduced by George over at Ninjabetic.
"No D-Day is a day when our online interactions avoid diabetes completely. Twitter, Blogs, Facebook, MySpace (lol), and anything else you can think of. Not a peep about that dumb disease. For one day.
The goal is to talk about different parts of our lives. Our hobbies, loves, talents, whatever! Every person I have ever met from the DOC is awesome because of who they are, not because of the disease that brought us together. We are more than a disease!"
Last year I wrote about my love for camping. Over the past year of blogging I've exposed myself on many levels. You know all too well about my running and sports and pooping in the bush. You can probably tell I'm a half-assed amateur photographer with a love of photographing people. You know I draft and design for a living as an Architectural Technologist. What can I write about that would be interesting enough to keep you awake and yet not something you already know?
So I've come up with something near and dear to me.
Back row: Bro-in-law, Brother (with the sunglasses)
Front row: Me, Sister, Mum, Nephew, Niece, Dad
I don't have a large one and I have no grandparents left so I really only want to talk about my immediate family. There are 5 of us. 3 kids. My sister is 2.5 years older than me and my brother is 2.5 years younger than me. That makes me a VERY middle child. We are an oddball of a bunch and yet we are all very similar. Mum and Sis are super short. Dad, well he's just plain normal short. I was the tallest in the family until my bro came along and sprouted up to almost 6feet. We all have strikingly blue eyes (thanks mum 'n dad for that)
I LOVE my family in a super major way. I'm thankful every day for them. I appreciate having a family I get along with and trust. I love that we can spend 24/7 together for an entire week while on vacation and never get sick of each other. We are all very supportive and understanding and rarely go a weekend without hanging out to some degree. When we are all in a room together though, it can get pretty rowdy. The Scullys can be an obnoxiously loud bunch of fools but I wouldn't have it any other way.
