It’s A Sunshine Day

Back in November, the inimitable Rarasaur nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award.  I don’t usually do Blog awards, because that’s just not what this blog is about.  However, Rara is one of my very favorite bloggers, so I wanted to pay this forward a little bit.  Better late than never, right?

sunshine-awardHere’s the Sunshine Blogger Award Rules:

  •     Display the award logo on your blog.
  •     Link back to the person who nominated you.
  •     State 5 things about yourself.
  •     Pass the award onto 8 other bloggers and link to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by pingback.

Five Things About Me:

  1. I love old TV shows that almost nobody remembers, like Streethawk, Flying Blind, Lush Life, Automan, and Mr. Merlin.
  2. I do a really good George Takei impression. And a pretty decent Mickey Mouse as well.  And while we’re on the subject of stupid human tricks, I can make the sound of one hand clapping.
  3. I am chorally trained. I sang in high school and for the first three and a half years of college. I sing in the Bass-Baritone range and used to be part of a barbershop quartet. I also have a secret stash of recordings of me doing Karaoke in the early 1990s. Tell no one.
  4. I have some form of headache almost every day.  Some are mild sinus things, and some are walloping migraines.  I’m used to it.
  5. I have seen the Village People perform live in concert on several separate occasions. I would kill to acquire a recording of their live version of Iko-Iko.

For those who I am about to pass the award on to,  please don’t feel obligated to do anything with it.  The award isn’t created by any official group, like a WordPress Advisory Board or anything.  It’s just one set of bloggers showing appreciation for the contributions of other bloggers.

However-  I don’t like chain letters or posts that say “pass this on or else.”   While I am following the rules of the award by listing eight bloggers below, my linking to you here doesn’t mean you’re required to do anything about it.

Moving on, then.

I hereby pass this award onto these 8 bloggers, in no particular order:

  1. Das Regensblog: For seemingly being more amused than I am about living in Regensburg. Plus lots of tasty food posts.

    1. They’re audio, not video, and never! Neeeever! If you want to hear me sing, you’re gonna have to go *with* me to Karaoke. (Could be a fun bloggerspedition, eh?)

    You sang barbershop! Where? In Palm Beach County? I’m blown away! So did I, for years. (Also a bari, but the female version) You just never know about people. I wouldn’t have guessed.
