I’m Versatile Like That

Laura at MindSync nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Thanks, Laura! It’s especially nice to have a total stranger nominate your blog, isn’t it? *just delighted*

1. Kat’s Den

2. The Truth About Moms and Blogs

3. completely in the dark

4. MondayDew

5. lindaghill Life in progress

6. A Voice From the Foothills

11. Becoming Cliche

12. Don in Massachusetts

NOTE: If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award, no need to wait for a winner to be announced. The rules for the acceptance of this award can be found at this link:

Sadly, several of my favorite bloggers maintain private sites, and a few public bloggers I love don’t want any awards. But these are all versatile people I love to read, and you might as well.

As part of my acceptance of the award, I am to tell Laura, and y’all, seven new things about me. This will take longer than creating all those bleedin hyperlinks up there…

1. I don’t listen to top 40 anymore. I always wondered how others became those people. I am now those people. I browse the itunes and if I love it, I buy it. As time goes on, I buy less and less.

2. I have a flub, mother’s apron, distended/fat/is-she-pregnant stomach — whatever you wanna call it, from having two c-sections in two years. I do not have a personal trainer, chef, or stylist. I have Spanx. My kids think I’m “comfy” and “squishy.” That makes me smile.

3. I am Plain Jane when it comes to style. I wear very few prints, carry only neutral handbags, and often ask, “Does it come in white?”

4. I’m not competitive, except at word games. I have been known to shout, “Booyah, Motherfucker! Kudzu for 86 points!”

5. I am technologically impaired. I am proud to say that I have come a long way since my  eight-year-old son had to show me how to turn on the cell phone. (He’s twenty now.)

6. I have bad arthritic hands. They’re pretty useless for untying knots, dressing dolls, or  opening lids…I’m pretty sure one day I will try to open a jar of pickles and my wrist will just snap.

7. I took anti-depressants for three days: I have never been so depressed in my life. While they improve the quality of life for millions of people, they took me into the darkest realms  of melancholy and apathy.

I hope you will accept your nominations, and I hope you’ll find new bloggers to add to your network.
For me, I hope I can avoid hyperlinks for awhile. *whews*

    Congratulations on your nomination, and thank you for nominating me! As soon as I can figure out how to get that image on my blog, I’ll follow through. Congrats again!

    thank you so much. I really appreciate it. I have sort of a phobia about these now. I started when I first started getting them. (I got this one once as I recall). For years, actually just until last year, the only service we had was dial-up. I found complying with the awards to be a laborious process that took me hours to do all the links. so I started avoiding them. Now I have wi-fi of course, but I just got out of the habit. I try to recognize new and great blogs I’m reading every 4 or 5 months, and hope that’s enough. Again, Joey, you are the best, I’m an avid reader and I’ll certainly look over the other nominees for some new ones to add to my reading. (Like I have time now!?)
