And the Nominees Are…

Can you tell I have a thing for the Oscars?

It’s been a good month for my little blog. First the Liebster Award nomination, and a couple of days after that, I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award. :-).  versatileblogger111 I  admit that my head swelled a bit, causing my brain to stop having any post ideas at all. Go figure.

Matt, author of The Matticus Kingdom, kindly nominated Not Pretending  for this award. Please visit his kingdom, you will be happy you did!

Thank you, Matt, for not only the nomination, but for considering my posts versatile.

All this time I believed I was a flibbertigibbet*.  And what do ya know, I was just being versatile. 😉   Upon receiving this award there are rules to follow (there’s always a “but”…)

Versatile Blogger Rules  

  • Display the Award Certificate on your website
  • Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award
  • Present 15 10 awards to deserving bloggers
  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

 My nominations for deserving & versatile blogs go to:

  1. My Meandering Trail   This gal is going to be hiking the Appalachian Trail this year and taking her readers along with her!
  2. Dorky Deb  She’s more fun than dorky!
  3. Aavicenna  This blog introduces you to the world of fragrance. The way perfumes are described you can almost smell them. The photography is awesome.  Very Classy.
  4. Life in General  A great place to find life stories, humor, photos and inspiration. A truly versatile blog!
  5. Charlotte’s Web  A unique and somewhat spooky site. Beware if you have arachnophobia :-0
  6. Ramblings of a Quickwit   She is funny and real. I guess that makes her real funny! (Please forgive me, I’m out of sorts today from dealing with medical insurance and the IRS. And I didn’t even speak to a human)
  7. Whatimeant2say   What she does say is hysterical. The adventures of Wonderbutt are fun too.
  8. notquiteold  She is gracefully aging – with resistance. She draws too.
  9. HagFest  A blog celebrating women, that has posts about humor, books, politics, religion, writing, family – you name it. Talk about versatile.
  10. Maternity Peeve  A writer, film critic, designer, gardener and teacher, now a stay at home mom, shares her adventures in her clever blog.

Congratulations Everyone!

7  Wacky (Interesting) Things About Myself:

  1. When in grade-school, I would walk home talking to myself, sometimes making up songs and skipping. It was a long 2-mile walk. (No snow – just weirdos wanting to give me rides)
  2. My little sister excelled at being a pain-in-my-butt ever since she was born. She died last year, but even that hasn’t stopped her.
  3. When I was 12, I wanted to be a stand-up comic. Like Phyllis Diller and Joan Rivers were at the time. When I told my parents, they laughed at me, and rolled their eyes.
  4. My right leg is longer than my left. Most people don’t notice, until I mention it. (Oops!)
  5. My favorite outfit is flannel pajamas and penguin slippers
  6. I have a crush on Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds
  7. I spend more time reading blog posts than writing them.

Now I have fulfilled my obligations for this award. I can get back to the 38 things I’ve put off  to do this  😉


*FYI – if your family never met Rednecks or mountain folk: “Flibbertigibbet (flibər tē jib′it) noun referring to a person who is  irresponsible &  flighty. A silly, scatterbrained, or garrulous person.”
