I've received some awards these last few weeks and have been hoarding again. Shame on me. I even received some while I was away so that was very nice to come home to.
I'll dispense with the flummery and get started right away.
I received this lovely award from Lydia Kang The Word is my Oyster. I would like to bestow this upon :
I also received this beauty from Nicole. I thought it appropriate I pass this on to some "freshman" writers I know. (I really loathe the term 'newbie' so I'm going to refrain from using it and call them freshman instead.) And I'm calling them freshman because they have less than 50 followers.
Becoming a Writer
Chocolate Sedations in Writing
I Am An Authoress
The Rainy Day Wanderer
My Writing and Research Notebook
Ducks out of a Row
Digging out of Distraction
And lastly, I received the Versatile Blogger award from (get ready) 4 different people - Samuel, Cynthia, Christine, and Dominique.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Now the rules are pretty simple, link back and thank the people who gave you this award, (which I've got some heavy duty linkage going on) and share 7 things about yourself.
1) I can tie a cherry stem with my teeth.
2) I still cry during most of Monster Baby's movies, even though I've seen them eight thousand times.
3) I've had to dye my hair since I've been 17. Premature gray is not fun on a high school graduate. I've always tried to be a red-head to go along with #7.
4) I don't kill bugs, I try to get them to stick to toilet paper and throw them outside. Well, except for the ones who look like they might be dangerous.
5) I don't travel well. As much as I like to go to new places, I have jet leg for days afterward. Even if I don't fly, even if I'm in the same time zone.
6) I wear bi-focals now.
7) I'm a Taurus, a Tiger and Irish so my stubborn streak is immediately recognizable. I'm not as versatile as I'd like.
Okay, I'd like to recognize these fine bloggers as being "Versatile".
Now please, if you don't know any of these wonderful friends, please go and introduce yourself, especially to the freshman writers.
