Look! I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!


Thank you to Athina of The Otter in my Jotter blog for nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  For those of you who don’t know, the Versatile Blogger Award is an Award given to bloggers for quality of writing, uniqueness of subjects covered, and the level of love displayed in the written word (or the love of the photographs displayed on the virtual page).  Because of this, I am deeply honored to be nominated.

Rules for the VBA:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

My nominations are as follows (do you know how difficult it is to pick 15 bloggers for this award?  It’s insane!)

  1. Rose Wallflower
  2. keithgarrettpoetry
  3. My boyfriend turned me into a lesbian… in Japan
  4. My Atheist Blog
  5. Rob’s Surf Report
  6. Steve Says…
  7. JannaTWrites
  8. The Irish Atheist
  9. richardankerswrites
  10. The Culture Monk
  11. HarsH ReaLiTy
  12. adoptingjames
  13. anelephantcant
  14. Apoplectic Apostrophes
  15. Eclectic Witchcraft and Paganism

Yay!  I managed to narrow it down to fifteen!  That wasn’t easy!  There are so many deserving blogs out there!

Okay, now I’m supposed to tell you seven things about myself.  I suppose I should tell you things that you don’t already know from reading my blog…  This might be even harder than the nominations…

  1. I like to mix Merlot with Dr. Pepper.  To me it just tastes better that way.
  2. When I was a teenager I read The Godfather in two days.  I only put it down to eat, sleep and use the washroom.  This was no easy task.  For those of you who don’t know, The Godfather is 448 pages in the paperback format and has many words in Italian that I had to manage to figure out the meaning purely from the context.
  3. I have this recurring dream where I am trying to fly to my grandmother’s house and always end up in a mall with no doors or windows.
  4. My favorite pizza is sausage, green peppers, onions, jalapenos and extra sauce.  And I always end up with heartburn after eating it, but still get it anyway.
  5. I truly dislike the taste of beer.  I have yet to meet a beer that I like.  Although, I must admit that I fell in love with Irish Car Bombs at a friend’s party once.
  6. I’m not really a social person, though I apparently make friends rather easily.  Unfortunately, they almost always annoy me at some point and I stop talking to them.
  7. I have a seriously bad habit of telling people what I think and that tends to piss them off.  I think I lack that filter that tells me when to shut up.

Okay, there it is.  I hope you have enjoyed reading this.  Please remember to follow the rules of the Award if I have nominated you.  I look forward to seeing responses from everyone.

  1. Congrats on the award! And, thanks for including me in your list of 15 – I’m honored.

    Merlot and Dr. Pepper? Never heard of that before…might be the only way I could get wine down 🙂 Your #6 made me laugh…not an easy task in the AM 🙂

    1. Merlot and Dr. Pepper is quite good in my opinion. I started doing that to make the glasses of wine last a little longer without the effect of severe intoxication, but then I did it just because it was really good that way. I’d like to say that #6 wasn’t true, but it is. I’m easily annoyed by stupid people and people who have very little common sense.

  2. Omagosh! #5 – I don’t like beer too, but I love Irish car bombs! And #6, I can totally relate to!
    Love how my WordPress family makes me feel more normal, or less abnormal, every day.
