What Was I Thinking: Married/Divorced x 3

A view from my side.

Hell you say…you won it?

Well, no, I didn’t actually win it, but I’ve always wanted to say that line from “The Christmas Story.”  I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Andromache Wilde.  Thanks so much for your nomination and I humbly accept.  I enjoy your blog as well and always look forward to your next post.  Its been a while, so get with it!  🙂

Versatile Blogger

Part of accepting the award means I get to nominate 15 other bloggers.  I’m sure many of you have already received this award and know what to do, but just in case, go to the Versatile Blogger site to read up on it.  I read and enjoy each of the following and hope you will too:











Mirth and Motivation

Chocolate and Raspberries

The Hungry Irishman

7th Heaven

Mullings of a Mind Tramp

Next, in keeping with the rules of the game, I’m to share 7 things about myself.  So, ok then…here goes –

  1. I white water raft whenever possible.  Its been a while, but West Virginia here I come this summer!
  2. I play solitaire on my old Palm Treo for a few minutes almost every night before turning off the light to go to sleep.
  3. I jog to burn enough calories to eat the way I want to without gaining major poundage.
  4. I love Renaissance Festivals.  Texas and Maryland both have great ones.
  5. I once sold blood to get bus fare home.  It had been a long day, I was tired and broke.
  6. I have a fear of spiders.  I walked face first into a spider web, spider planted squarely on my nose and don’t want to ever again.
  7. I laugh, loudly, at times.  So loudly that it has made people near me uncomfortable.  I can’t help it if I find life incredibly humorous sometimes.

So there we are.  Thanks, Andromache, for the nomination.  And thanks to all the bloggers above for some enjoyable reading.

    Congratulations for the award 🙂
    & thank you for the nomination! Not only it made me happy to be nominated, it has also given me the chance to discover new ones! Really good ones! 🙂

    On a side note, I find Renaissance festivals quite amusing as well, even though I haven’t watched one live yet.. & I also love to play solitaire right before I sleep! It either is calming, or helps to put me into sleep mode faster! (Not sure if it’s a compliment for those who invented this game though :p )

    Not a fan of spiders either 🙂

    They have an odd habit of picking doorways for webs. Not sure why, but theres nothing worse than catching a web to the face WITH the spider attached. eeek.

    Anyway. Youre welcome and sorry I havent been posting. I have been sick the last few weeks. Will be posting soon 🙂

    Congrats 😉

    P.S. A Christmas Story is my fav Holiday movie 🙂
