How Versatile

During my brief hiatus while I was busy doing things that I could hopefully blog about later, CoffeePowerdMom was kind enough to nominate me for the Versatile Blogger Award – because she is awesome-sauce!

Which immediately made me run through a whole gamut of emotions, from “Woo-hoo, someone other that me is reading these things!!”, to “Oh Crap, do I even read enough other blogs to nominate 15 other people? Yep, but all the ones I do read have already been nominated numerous times”, to “At least I’ll have one thing to write about this week”.

If you ever want to kill a chain letter, or pyramid recipe scheme, or email joke thread, send it to me – I never ever follow through on that shit. But this is different, this is a big sparkly *AWARD*. So like any good major award, I’m going to prop it up in my figurative front window for all to see, and even more remarkably, actually make an effort to pass it along and mostly follow the rules!

So here it goes:

♦  Thank and link to the nominator (see first paragraph)
♦  Tell seven things about you (see below)
♦  Nominate 15 blogs that are awesome-sauce (see below that)

Seven things about me, in no particular order, with no particular theme, that hopefully include at least one or two things that you didn’t already know, or maybe even a stunning revelation (doubtful!)

1.  I’m not a very good gardener, but when I do manage to get to the weeding, I weed just like my Grandma Mary did – standing on my feet, bent over at the waist, with my ass hanging out for all the world to see – because it really is faster than shuffling around on my knees.

2. I have been to the top of the Eiffel Tower even though I’m scared of heights, I have climbed the Great Wall of China even though I’m out out of shape, and I have golfed in Scotland even though I don’t have an official handicap, but I will *NEVER* be convinced to get over my fear of raw fish and try sashimi!!!

3.  My idea of “cooking” is pre-heating the oven and throwing in a Stouffer’s Family Size Lasagna.

4.  I firmly believe that Joss Whedon is brilliant – I would watch his film adaptation of paint drying on a wall.

5.  I love my job, but that doesn’t mean I don’t day dream about making a living crocheting and knitting… or owning my own hockey rink.

6.  I almost ran over Martin Mull with my bicycle while I was visiting my uncle. (He lived in Brentwood in the 1990’s so I had a few run-in’s with famous people – but usually I wasn’t accidentally trying to injure them.)

7.  I think everybody should get their butt checked, because colon cancer sucks (Miss you every day Daddy).

And now for the harder part… coming up with 15 other blogs to nominate. I have a few core blogs that I love (of which I was surprised to find there were actually more than 15!), but I love them for the same reason so many other people love them, which means most of them have been nominated numerous times before. So I will at least list them here (again in no particular order) so others can go check them out, and then I’ll work on letting them know once I figure out if it’s a “new to them” award or not! (Like I mentioned before, not always so good with following the rules, so if you see yourself here before I tag you on your blog…. that’s sooooo freaking cool that you follow me!)

  1. Aw, sweet, thank you for thinking of me! 🙂 I will have to check out some of the blogs you’ve linked. I like some of the names. Father Trek, Superhero Underpants, those sound awesome. Plus the profanity letters to baby.

    I’m still not sure who Joss Wheadon is.

    • How can I *not* think of you, you’re one of my faves!!

      And Joss Whedon is the mind behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dr. Horrible’s Sing A Long Blog, and directed this years Marvel’s The Avengers. He is my sci-fi GOD!! Hehe!!!

  2. Thanks so much. I’m flattered 🙂

  3. Thanks, Soapfi’s Mom! I’m finally back to reading other blogs I love, now that Ironman, the Killer Pinata has finally been finished and beaten to death!
