Versatile Blogger Award


So apparently I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award.  But since being nominated is apparently the same as being given the award, I’m going to say that I won it, fair and square.  For being…versatile?

All right, all right.  It’s one of those chain letter type things.  Pass it on or you’ll have thirteen years of bad luck.  But hey, I’m not against spreading the love a little bit, so here goes.

The rules are as follows: Link back to the person who nominated you, nominate 15 other bloggers for the award, and then tell everyone seven things about yourself [even though they already read your blog and therefore know about you].

So thank you, Adventures in Text, for giving me the mention.

Here are 15 blogs I visit, in no particular order, even though I’m not an official follower of any of them because WordPress does not respect my email settings:

So if you’re on the list, congrats.  You’re now as special as I am, and have won yourself an award.  For being versatile, of course.  Feel free to copy the badge and pass it on.

Now…seven things about myself?

1. I love avocados more than I love most people.

2. When I was little, I knew deep down in my heart that I wanted to be a professional nose tweaker.

3. Every place I’ve ever lived has had a 2 in the house number.  The place where I grew up, all my college dorms, my current apartment…at this point, I wouldn’t buy or move into a property that didn’t have one.

4. I love New England.  I don’t care if I’m buried in snow for half the year.  I’m constantly surprised by beautiful things every single day.

5. I have no idea what I’m planning to do with my life, but every day I search the Craigslist ads looking for an entry-level nose tweaker.

6. I wish hats would make a comeback.  Not baseball caps or beanies, but full-on Victorian-style masterpieces.

7. I will pretty much tell anyone anything about myself if they act genuinely concerned and I feel like I can trust them.  I live a very solitary life, which I enjoy most of the time, but I do desperately long for a real connection with other human beings, which I have thus far, through bad luck or lack of skill, failed to achieve for the most part.  I think one of the reasons I write is because creating my own worlds with adventure, danger, love, and emotional meaning is the only way I can wrap my brain around trying to understand people in real life.

So there you have it.  Thanks again to Adventures in Text.  Cheers.
