First I’d like to thank God, my personal trainer, Mrs Darling my Home Ec teacher, my mentor and friend- Tammy in the cafeteria, and of course, my wonderful husband who’s name I have forgotten in my obvious overwhelmedness over this achievement……….
But seriously- the lovely and talented gal Lavender who hosts Threadsquare http://threadsquare.wordpress.com/ has awarded me a Versatile Blog award- isn’t she the ginchiest?
I knew I was in the running for Redundant Blogger, Heavy-set Blogger, Blogger with Much Whining, but this was a surprise! I feel all Sally Fieldsy…..
One day I shall figure out how to put this lovely medallion on my page. I’m slow at these technical things, you know. So here is my new mission:
- Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post (check! )
- Share seven things about yourself on your blog (oh, dear)
- Pass this award along to recently discovered blogs (oh, no- more linking!)
Oh, seven things about me? Oh, being such a retiring blossom, I just don’t know where to start! I practically never speak of myself!
As with all of my thoughts, they are in no order of importance:
1- Until this very award, I could not spell
versitile versetile, Versatile.
2- My first crush was on Daryl Dragon- yes, the Captain from Captain and Tennille. Years later I had a friend and her first crush was Toni Tennille. It is a small world, after all.
3- I have an irrational and tacky fear of Little People. I cannot watch TLC without a spotter. This cannot be reconciled with my love of corgies and miniature dachshunds, but it’s true.
4- I was once sexually harrassed by Robert Goulet.
5- I think that all cats should be named after drunken authors. I have a Clemmons, a Flannery and a Dashiell. I miss Mrs Parker. I once named someone else’s cat Huxley.
6- My Mother thinks this is my natural haircolor. I can’t explain that- you’d just have to meet her.
7- My husband is three years younger than I am. I’m a chubby cougar! He looks older than I do because being a curmudgeon ages you quickly.
Wow. I am not very exciting, sorry everyone who was on the edge of their seat- I still refuse to speak of my haunted, tortured past as a nun ….and my flight across Austria with my new family and their curtain dresses…..
Now these bloggers- They are exciting! Check ’em out:
