Last week, the lovely Debra Kristi presented me with the Versatile Blogger Award. As it never fails to amaze me when another person doesn't think I'm completely insane, I was pleased as punch to receive it. Unfortunately, Debra likes to give me awards attached to hundreds of yards of red tape. If I'm to accept this award, I must agree to the following conditions:
- Thank the person who shared the award with you by linking back to them in your post.
- List seven things about yourself.
- Pass this award on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know that you included them in your blog post.
It's not a gift if you want something for it. But, as you're a pretty nice person all the way around, I'll go ahead and share a few things about myself. By the way, the next time I give you an award, I expect a detailed, forty page research paper on your family tree. You may want to start now...;)
1.) I hate ChapStick. Blasphemy to some, my penchant for lip gloss will never be shaken.
2.) For years, my favorite color was black. In 2010, I realized pup tents are just as slimming.
3.) I'm typing these answers in brown, giraffe-print pajama bottoms. Don't worry, it only took one giraffe dying for me to look this ridiculous.
4.) I have six sisters and three brothers. In case you're wondering, they're all much better looking and smarter than me....an unfortunate side-effect of being the oldest.
5.) Like Mary Poppins, I can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, backwards. I'd do it right now, but if you go to the end of the word and type it the way you see it, you'll get the idea.
6.) Hairless cats scare me. Who enjoys being naked in public? Another reason to own a dog...as long as it's not my dog. He has issues and we're not speaking right now. If you see him, tell him I've over it, but to ask before he borrows things...
7.) When I was born, a woman told my mom I'd one day be a prolific blogger. Years later, when the internet was invented, my mom stopped being as confused.. Oh wait, I think I'm thinking of an old Natalie Merchant song. My bad...
Thank you again, Debra! Now, to pass on my award to bloggers I heart. I know there's only nine, but that's because they're nine really good ones...
Melynda over at Crazy World - A lovely lady who always has wonderfully entertaining stories to tell. Just don't eat anything she leaves out on the counter....eek
Lani Wendt Young at Sleepless In Samoa - She just released her book Telesa: The Covenant Keeper, and besides being a fantastic writer, tells fantastic stories about bugs, kids, and everything in between...
Lyn Kelley at LynNerd's Random Acts of Writing - Lyn is a children's writer and an extremely fun blogger. She's always talking about something different and her sense of humor reels you in every time...even if she's dressed like a zombie.
Brenda over at Mama Be Good - This lady is a great writer who candidly shares her journey through life with her son who has autism. If you like to laugh and cry simultaneously, head on over..:)
Elisa at The Crazy Life of A Writing Mom - I'm pretty sure she's received this award, before, but I'm giving it to her anyway because she never fails to tell a new tale everyday. She also has a new book coming out on 11/18/11 called The Golden Sky.
Joanna at To A Pretty Life - She does all the super-impressive craft projects I don't attempt out of respect for the fact that people don't want to lose an arm.
Joshua at Vive Le Nerd - Another great blogger who always has something different to talk about everyday. If you're a nerd, he's right up your alley.
AG over at Regectedriter - One of my favs because he not only makes you laugh at rejection, he convinces you it's what you want.
Padded Cell Princess over at Padded Cell Confessions - From locksmithing to spider warfare, she's your lady. Always a good story.
Here is the award. It's very pretty, as you can see. ------->
Until Next Time Readers!
