The rules for dealing with this award, as noted here, involve the following:
- Thank the person who gave you this award. (Thanks, Sugar and Spice!)
- Include a link to their blog. (http://thediaryofsugarandspice.wordpress.com/)
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
- Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
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 fifteen bloggers below, my linking to you here doesn’t mean you’re required to do anything about it.
Moving on, then. I’m passing this on to:
And lastly, the requisite 7 Things About Myself:
- I have never seen The Godfather. Not part 1, part 2, or part 3. I’ve never read the novel either. For as much as I love movies, everyone just assumes that I’ve seen this at some point, I never have.
- I am immune to being earwormed by other people, but I earworm myself all the time.
- I spent a chunk of the early 1990s in a Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow cast. I was usually Brad, but I played Frank a few times.
- I only got my passport in 2006 because I wanted to see London. My goals at the time did not include any other destinations.
- I carry ear plugs with me every day, and especially to all the concerts I go to because my hearing is already starting to show signs of wear and tear. When I’m in a crowded restaurant or bar, I often can’t tell what people are saying to me because I have a difficult time parsing their words out of the background noise.
- Sometimes when I get going on a project or a blog post or something along those lines, I go into a sort of hyperfocus and lose all sense of time. It’s not uncommon for me to lose hours writing a series of blog posts. This is great for productivity, but bad for my health- when I am in this state, I forget to eat and I don’t notice the migraine forming until it’s far, far too late.
- I’m a chronic overpacker pretending to be someone who travels very light. I can usually get myself down to a single bag, but that bag is stuffed to the gills. On any given trip, I might have too many extra shirts, a flashlight, enough electronic gadgets to initiate a hostile takeover of RJR Nabisco from the road, and quite possibly a boat anchor. (Hey, you never know when you’ll need to stop in a hurry!)
Do you pack light or are you also prone to overpacking?
