http://charlywalker.wordpress.com has recently awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award. Apparently, receiving this award is not as simple as it sounds.
Not only do I have an assignment, but there is some disagreement on what the assignment is. I am supposed to link to seven or fifteen other bloggers, depending on who is giving the rules. (I am going to go with seven.) I am supposed to list seven random things about myself. Also, maybe I am supposed to look up the word “versatile”, or maybe not.
My late grandfather’s 1948 Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary has this to say: “Turning with ease from one thing to another; having many aptitudes; many sided”. It also says “fickle”, but I will overlook that… things were different in 1948. I could use an online dictionary, but I like the feel of thin paper and black tabs with gold embossing. I also like seeing my grandfather’s cursive script on the inside cover.
Seven random things about me:
1) I like musicals.
2) I am way behind on my blog reading.
3) I only wear comfortable shoes (comfortable does not mean ugly).
4) I stopped drinking milk ten years ago when I realized I have a mild allergy to it.
5) I rarely get sick.
6) I can’t stand avocados.
7) I recommend the documentary “Young At Heart”.
It is nice to receive an award, especially from one of my lovely readers. I would like to promote my fellow bloggers’ work, so here are a few blogs that make me smile…
