Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile? (Looks over shoulder; sees no one behind me.) Me? Do you think so? Do you really think so?

Well, apparently one person does, to wit, the very cool and talented Shéa MacLeod. And who am I to quibble? <g>

Yes, Shéa has touched me with the Versatile Blogger Award stick. And you know what that means. Well, okay, you probably don’t. Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to (up to) 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (in no particular order…)
4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

Okay, Part 1, thank you, Shéa! You are a darling.

Part 2, here are seven things about me:

1) I can’t leave the house without making the bed. I can leave dishes on the counter, jackets draped on chairs, shoes in a pile by the door, dust bunnies firmly entrenched in their protected habitats. But God help me, I have to make the bed. What does that say about me?

2) I’m a little compulsive and am easily spellbound by simple, repetitive tasks. If I get started weeding my flower beds, I’d better have all day, because the weeds – they … all … must … come … out. Of course, I wind up being sore for three days, but my gardens look good.

3) I have a weird aversion to the name Betty. I’ve known some very lovely Bettys, and the name does not have any awful-Betty associations, but nevertheless, never will a character in one of my books be named Betty.

4) I am learning not to be such a grudge-holder. My policy has always been to take everyone pretty much at face value, giving them the benefit of a doubt – until they demonstrate that I can’t. And then I can hold a grudge for a very, very long time. As in, forever. Slowly getting past that. Life is too short to harbor animosity for any length of time. Plus it tends to crowd out the good stuff.

5) I’m starting to wonder if I’ll keep watching Castle next year. This disturbs me deeply. I love(d?) that show. We’ll see what next year brings.

6) When I meditate, I see a really deep, rich amythst color. Huh.

7) Recording artist I would most love to meet: Everlast, aka Erik Shrody, aka Whitey Ford. He fascinates the hell out of me and writes the best songs. (“What it’s Like” will always be one of my favs.)

Okay, moving on to Part 3, wherein I tag some other bloggers with the Versatile Blogger Award. Shéa definitely deserves to be on this list, but I don’t think it’s good etiquette to tag back… So without further ado, here are my selections:

Bonnie Vanak

MJ Fredrick

Esri Allbritten

Theresa Ragan

Les Floyd (Shéa already tagged him, so I don’t expect him to repeat the feat, but I wanted to mention him. His blog is awesome.)

Okay, that’s all my tired brain can think of right now, so it’s time for Part 4. I’m off to notify the lucky victims ricipients of the glorious Versatile Blogger Award. May they labor as long as I did finding seven things to say about themselves.
