I’m Honored To Accept…
I would like to thank Ted for recently nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. What an honor!
If I accept (which I do), the rules are that I have to share 7 things about myself, and then nominate 15 fellow bloggers for this award. Both difficult tasks. I’m sure my regular readers already know pretty much everything about me, and now I have to come up with 7 more things? I thought about skipping this step and just taking questions from my readers, but then decided to just think about it until I could come up with seven useless fun facts (or boring facts) about me. Or old facts, if you already know 😉
1. I’m only 11 months and 5 days older than my sister.
2. I love medical TV shows, but I can’t watch the “gory” stuff and hold my hand up to cover most of the screen until the scene is over.
3. I set the cruise control on my car every time I drive somewhere. Of course it’s set at what the speed limit is.
4. I had to repeat 7th grade and 9th grade. (I guess I should clarify that I failed 9th grade, but transferred to a different kind of school and went on to 10th grade).
5. I really want a tattoo, but I’m too chicken to get one.
6. I didn’t get my driver’s license until I was 26.
7. I enjoy assembling furniture.
Now to nominate 15 bloggers. I follow so many blogs that it was difficult to keep it down to 15 (20 would have been easier!)
So here they are – in alphabetical order! – because: a) You’ve been here from the start, b) I value your friendship, c) You inspire me, d) You make me smile/laugh, e) I love your blog, f) some of the above, or g) all of the above 🙂
I realize that some of you have already received this award, and any of you may decline it, but if you accept, please see the rules above.
Making this list made me realize that my blogroll needs to be updated!
And here is a useless fun fact about this post, thanks to WordPress:
“This is your 1,580th published post. Marvelous! This post has 357 words.”

Thanks for accepting the award! And I learned 8 new things about you today (if I include the fact from WordPress 😉 ). I applaude you for using the cruise control, it is such a useful device!

VERY useful, keeps me from speeding 😉
As for learning 8 new things… that’s the good thing about (still) being new to my blog 🙂

ooh, what a wonderful surprise 🙂 I’m not sure I know 15 different bloggers then you, lol. But I am honored, thank you! Next trip to Jersey, you can stay with me and assemble furniture 🙂

It’s OK if you nominate the same people. I nominated at least one person that was also nominated by Ted.
And it’s a deal! Just make sure you have all the tools ready that I’ll need 😉

how fun! I didn’t know all those things about you. I will do mine this weekend. But I dont have 15 people to nominate…LOL
4. November, 2011 at 21:28
Yay! I bet you do know 15 people to nominate 🙂
5. November, 2011 at 11:38
Thank you so much! I will happily accept and do my own post. It looks like Doreen and Dalia are going to get a second nod from me 🙂
5. November, 2011 at 08:43
So glad you accept! Can’t wait to read your post 🙂

Thanks very much for the nomination Michaela. It was pretty cool to learn new things about you. I’ve blabbed around the blogosphere so much in the past couple years I don’t know if I could come up with 7 new facts about me for a post, LOL.
5. November, 2011 at 11:03
Aww, you’re very welcome 🙂
I didn’t think I could come up with 7 things, either, because I blab so much. Just think of a few things that we MAY not know about you.

*teehee* I keep telling my kids that once I come back from this nerve thing and crawl out of the Fibro cycle I’ve been in, I’m going to go out and get a tattoo of a Phoenix just above my right butt cheek! LOL They’re are beginning to worry that I’m serious. 😉
5. November, 2011 at 20:13
Thank you, but my post wore me out tonight… I’ll have to think about this one for a while!
5. November, 2011 at 22:31
Thanks so much for including me in your list Michaela… I’ll accept any one of the reasons behind your choice… lol.. You’re far too kind… 🙂
6. November, 2011 at 04:54
And maybe you should get a tattoo of a chicken… 😉
6. November, 2011 at 04:59
I want a tattoo, too. It’s not that I’m chicken, I just don’t know what I feel so passionately about that I’d have permanently fixed to my body.

Congratulations on your well-deserved reward!
And thank you for nominating me. I appreciate the honor. 🙂

I don’t know how I missed this!! Thank you for the nomination, and congratulations on yours!! 🙂 I have thought about getting a tattoo a few times, but could never decide on a design, and I always knew that I would someday regret it, anyway! I waited until I was almost 19 before I got my driver’s license, it’s always best to wait until you’re ready!
