Back to the purpose of this post: to extend a big thanks to those who've once again bestowed me with the honor of sweet versatility. You guessed it. Once again, I've been presented with the amazingly awesome Versatile Blogger award and doubly bestowed with the Irresistibly Sweet Blog award.
It's a darn good thing versatility hasn't bypassed me as flexibility sure the hell has. Unfortunately, I remember attempting to do the splits and getting stuck about half-way down making me wish I had one of those LifeCall pendants as I had truly fallen and couldn't for the life of me get up. I learned two lessons that day: 1) Never try to do the splits in blue jeans; and 2) Make for darn sure you aren't going commando if you do as the chances of splitting your pants in an unrehearsed, form-fitting blue jean split are pretty high.
Okay, I was presented with the Versatile blogger award by my fellow aspiring author/blogger Alex Megas. Check out his collection of short stories and poetry at his blog, Prickly Compositions of Alex Megas . Thank you, Alex!
The always sweet Carolyn Arnold of her self-titled blog Carolyn Arnold as well as the equally sweet Lia Davis of her self-titled blog Lia Davis , have presented me with the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. It's official: My blog's so sweet it will make your teeth rot.
Check out Carolyn's novel Ties That Bind. I just purchased it for my Kindle and plan on reading it shortly. Also, Lia will be releasing her first book in The Divinities Series entitled Forgotten Visions this summer (of which I will also be purchasing as it sounds uber cool). Thank you, ladies!
1) Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2) Share 7 random things about yourself.
3) Pass the award on to 15 deserving blog buddies.
4) Contact them to let them know
1. Check that box done.
2. I've done this before (actually twice before) but what the hey, I'll do it again:
7 Random Fun Facts
a. I'm self-conscious about my spelling. The older I get, the worse my spelling gets. It's as though I've gotten dumber with each passing year since graduation. In fact, I check my spelling before I send Tweets, e-mail or do any Facebooking.
b. I'll be a part-time student again soon. If all goes well, I will soon be going back to college to attain my bachelor's degree (hopefully in creative writing).
c. I'm good for at least one embarrassing act a day. Whether my fly comes undone, I trip over my own two feet, or I accidentally let one rip, people can usually count on getting a laugh at my expense.
d. I write as though I'm watching a movie. When I write, the scene plays over and over in my head. I'm a very visual person and it helps me greatly to envision the scene unfolding as I type it. If it's not something I would watch in the theater, I revise it.
e. My dream is to move out east or southeast to the mountains. Come on, what more inspiration for writing do you need than a snow-capped peak in the background?
f. I first met my husband the day he came into my former employer to finalize his divorce. Of course, we didn't start dating until months later...after I took him to the cleaners. ;-)
g. I despise talking on the phone. If I'm going to have a long conversation with someone, unless they're hundreds of miles away, I'd much rather talk face to face than over the phone. I'm one of those people who isn't happy unless they're constantly doing something and talking on the phone detracts from that. (I know, I know, anal).
3. As I do with pretty much all the awards I'm given, I would like to bestow the honor on all of my blog followers (or as a thanks to those viewing my blog). My only stipulation is that you share the wealth and keep the love going.
4. Anyone who reads my blog is going to be instantly notified. ;-)
My next blog post will return to the norm. What it will be, I have no idea yet but I'm leaning toward romance in writing. *Lights candles and turns on some Barry White*
