Okay…I’m just another weak-willed seeker of approval – there I’ve said it, i admit it, I plead guilty and throw myself on the mercy of the court. Having now confessed to my deeply flawed character I will now say that I am flattered and thrilled in the night to have a fellow purveyor of sarcasm bestow upon me the coveted Versatile Blogger Award, or as we “versatile bloggers” call it in our secret meetings in that room over there – the VBA. My fellow blogger Dee, also known as Miss Demure Restraint (who the rules say I must mention – but would anyway) has seen fit to lay this on me out of sheer pity for the fool no doubt. Of course I, being a bear of very little brain, can not figure out how to put that VBA bile-green thingee symbol into this post, but what’s new? I have the technical skills of a parsnip. I am now supposed to annoint 15 other blogs with this curse…and then reveal seven things about myself (i can’t wait to get to that part) so, and it is a minor miracle that, after much research as to how, I am able to create these links, in no particular order, here are my VBA nominees: Words And Other Things, k8edid, lisahgolden, Averil Dean, Ashley Jillian, Lila Bell, Sparks in Shadow, Young American Wisdom, Notes From Africa, An Embarrassment of Freedom, Finding Me In France, The Wild Pomegranate, Fivej, Words Fall From My Eyes, Brainrants, Creature With The Atom Brain, and The Mainland, and Memoirs of an Evil Stepmom…and yoyodyne populsions systems, and tinkerbelle86 …and joem18b… ….and the girl in the hat…and yoyodyne…Yes, I know that it’s now up to 23, but who’s counting?
Now, the good part. The part that at least I’ve been waiting for – the seven things I’m supposed to reveal about myself:
1. I don’t like borscht.
2. I think animals are the real angels.
3. I don’t really love a parade.
4. I am deeply suspicious of people who don’t like cats.
5. If I had to choose I would hope my mind goes before my body. (’cause what’ll I care)
6. I’m addicted to being silly.
7. My favorite quote is; When you want to fool the world, tell the truth.
I hope you’ve all not been sickened too much by this slight departure from my usual blather. This blog will now return to business as usual. Continue…
