Passing on a blog award.
Posted: April 30, 2010 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: blog, blog award, bloggers, kreativ, links
I was given a Kreativ Blogger award by Pauline at Brightest Blue and Bob at Funny In Shadows. Thanks very much to both of them. It is nice to be thought well of, nicer to be thought well of by people whose work I enjoy. Sorry it has taken me a week to follow through on the award
There are rules to having this award. As best I can tell, no one really knows where the rules or award came from. I tend to follow rules though, especially when they give me something to write about and push people toward blogs I like to read.
So the rules are:
1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
2. Copy the award logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.
Well, here is the award. Suitable for framing. Collect them all!
Seven things about me people might find interesting. Ok, here we go –
My best friends live hundreds of miles away. That kind of stinks, but makes for really joyous reunions every time.
I used to do a lot of scuba diving, including feeding sharks. I wore the chain mail suit a couple times. Twenty five pounds of chain mail makes you swim down really fast. You don’t go back up nearly as quickly.
I am a music junkie. I have nearly 15,000 songs on my i Pod. That isn’t enough. I don’t know what enough is. A used CD shop is a joyous trap for me.
Most things don’t bother me. Except slugs. Slugs creep me out to the point I can’t look at them. Touch one? Forget it. I can’t explain it.
I grew up in Oxon Hill, Maryland. I haven’t lived there in a long time and my home town has become a fairly rough place. I’m very sentimental about the place though. If I am anywhere near by, I will slip into town by myself and drive around. I live in North Carolina and it has been good to me. Oxon Hill and the Washington D.C. area is home.
I hate fish. I don’t hate them as individuals. I’m sure they are very well intentioned. I just don’t like the way they taste.
On my 40th birthday I went on a trip. One thing I had in mind was to get a tattoo, something small and subtle that no one would ever really see. Then there was a hurricane evacuation. 8 years later, I still haven’t gotten a tattoo. I know an omen when I see it.
The seven blogs I’d recommend
Betty’s Bubble – Betty’s writings on things in her neighborhood and adventures outside of it, like her meeting with her friend Ice-T, are always enjoyable when I see them pop up in my Google Reader.
Corn-Bean – Linlah mixes her views on the world with some really striking photography.
Shutterboo – Different person, different views on the world, different photography. Same result. I dig.
I Think We’re All Bozos On This Bus – Kathi lives in Eden. She can make anything. Any day now she is going to make me a Jeep.
Roger’s Place – Recently, Roger took the unusual step of not blogging for a week. I was there waiting when he got back. Well, not right there. That would be kind of awkward for us both.
The Sunday Blog at Spencer Court – One post a week, and he actually has something to say. I could learn something here.
Pie and Biscuits – “Waxes lyrical in pubs”. My favorite kind of person.
Yes, I know that was eight. I am flouting the rules. While I’m flouting – two blogs I love whenever they get the chance to post are:
Least Likely To Blog – Sometimes she’s pretty likely not to blog, but when she does, I am a fan.
Good Grape Juice – I’ve known Margie since Jr. High. She was not a sommelier back then. She is now.
There are a lot of other blogs I’d point you toward reading that I didn’t list here because I think they already got this kreativ-ly spelled award. I don’t know where you’d find links to those blogs in this paragraph, but if you can’t, they are on the Blogs you should read page, because you should read them.
