As I noted previously…(look up and press “play”) yeah, thanks, Sally! Any-whooo… so, not one, but TWO folks in the space of as many days has decided to make me grin like Conrad Veidt in The Man Who Laughs by nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Eeeeeee! Of course, this means I need to thank a few people and come up with a bunch of other deserving folks who might like their own days dazzled (or that daze dazzled) by a nomination. Or TWO nominations, actually. Lex Luther over at Sublime Zoo and Lady Fangtasia need to get thanks and a BIG hearty hand clasp:
For thinking on little old me! But a little additional housekeeping is required here before I retire to the Champagne Room for a snack. Wait, I have a Champagne Room? I must still be asleep! Oh well… er, moving onward…
Two: Oh, it’s got rules to follow, eh? I think I can do that stuff below and not screw it up too much. So these are them:
1. Display the Award on your Blog (DONE!)
2. Announce your win/nom/nod with a post and thank the Blogger who nominated you (DONE!)
3. Present 15 deserving Bloggers with the Award.
4. Link your nominees in the post and let them know of their nomination with a comment.
5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
Fifteen deserving bloggers, eh? Hmmm, let’s see now… my mind’s a blank… er, cabbages, knickers… has it got a beak? OK, after some deep thought (and cleaning my oven between last night and this morning), I’ve come up with these fine folks (in sort of alphabetical order):
The Accidental Coochie Mama!
Bill’s Movie Emporium!
Comet Over Hollywood!
Girls Do Film!
Jordan and Eddie!
The League of Dead Films!
Retro Video Gaming!
The Sega Collection!
Hokay, fifteen quick posts are on the way to let these folks know they’ve got a leetle surprise coming…
And wait, WHAT? Seven interesting thing about me? Holy Cats. Well, hmmm… who put that bucket of corner paint in this post? Okay, but you asked for it. Each of these facts has a loooooong story behind it, so you’ll not get that information out of me unless you throw lots of money my way or I run out of stuff to post about and am DESPERATE for content. Nevertheless, rules is rules… therefore:
1: I used to be a child model from about 1971 to 1972.
2: I was in a Snapple commercial back in 1994.
3: I’ve actually worked in a circus (not as an act, silly!)
4: I used to bake a LOT (mostly pies, mostly apple or pineapple/apple)
5: I have my name in the credits of exactly ONE video game.
6: I’m right-handed, but have been working on writing and drawing with my left for a bit.
7: I actually don’t much like talking about myself, so boy are YOU lucky to get to read all that!
Um, I think that’s it. Please go check out those links above, expand your horizons a bit (they’re certainly NOT going to grow just reading my stuff!) and have an A-1 day!
(Thank you, Vince Gilligan for giving me and every other Breaking Bad fan the PERFECT sign off!)
