Versatile Blogger




Guess what? I've been nominated twice for the Versatile Blogger Award!  This time by Charlie Warren from The Semi-retired Gamer.  Thanks, Charlie!  I feel so versatile now.

So here's what I'm going to do.  I'm going to share seven more random pieces of information about myself.  Technically, I'm supposed to nominate 15 more bloggers for the award, but since I've already done that, I'm going to say, if anyone out there would like the Versatile Blogger Award, go ahead and nominate yourself, and see Charlie's post for the rules. (Or you can see my post from a couple weeks back.)



7 More Random Things about Me:

1. I do not like brussels sprouts or sauerkraut.

2. I don't drink coffee. (I've gotten quite a few weird looks for that one - especially from people in Europe.)

3. I used to be a figure skater. (I had dreams of going to the Olympics, but obviously that never happened.)

4. I've never been able to figure out how to blow bubbles with gum. (What the heck is wrong with me?)

5. My favorite movie is The Red Violin.

6. I write out all of my book manuscripts by hand with a pencil and a notebook.  Crazy, huh?

7. Watermelon is my favorite food.



Now aren't you all just thrilled to know these things about me?

  1. I like what you said about nominating "yourself."

    Good for you for doing number 3.

    Shame on you for number 4(lol). I could blow them until they pop on my face.

    1. I'm going to blame number 4 on my Mom. She never let me chew gum when I was a kid. I guess that was a good thing, though, because I never had cavities.

  2. Ooo, I love watermelon... and also hate sauerkraut. I THOUGHT I hated brussel sprouts, too, until my chef BIL roasted some for me when I came to visit and they were far better than I thought!

    1. Maybe I'll rethink brussels sprouts. But definitely not sauerkraut!

  3. I don't like coffee either. I really like the smell of it, but I can't drink anything hot. Not even soup.

    1. That's interesting. I'm kind of glad I don't like coffee. My husband is a coffee addict. I can't imagine not being able to function without a cup of coffee!

  4. All by hand, geesh that is a little crazy, but I guess whatever works.

    1. Since I am not on the computer all day, that's the way I have to do it. (I write in all kinds of strange places.) I also like being able to erase and physically rewrite. It's all very time consuming, so maybe someday I'll do it differently.

  5. I can't blow bubbles either. And number one reminded me of a Dr. Seuss line :-)

  6. Watermelon is my third favorite food, after pizza and ice cream. I hate brussel sprouts. Only tried them once.
