Twice Versatiled!

Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger Award

djmatticus, a.k.a. The Matticus Kingdom, has coined the word “versatiled” recently. He was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by two bloggers almost at the same time.  Now, recently, it looks like I’ve been “versatiled” twice too.  One by TheMatticusKingdom, and the other by Christina of EACH AND EVERY SATURDAY 

Thank you both for this nomination.  I’m feeling hugged twice over!

Well, interestingly, I had been nominated for this same award sometime in 2011, by Gilly of Lucid Gypsy. So, it’s really my third time now.  I wonder what that’s supposed to mean.

Well, if it’s all the same to you all, I’ll do my Snoopy Jig around the house a couple more times over this tonight.  It’s fun. It raises the heart rate. Generates lots of feel good vibes.  Makes the hubby and the dog wonder what’s going on!  This is the second dance in one day!

Now, I’m supposed to share seven (7) random things about myself.  

  1. I like to squeeze every last bit of toothpaste before I dump the tube.
  2. I’m addicted to NPR.
  3. When I want a light feel good movie, I watch Woody Allen flicks, or “Love Actually,” or “Four Weddings and a Funeral.”
  4. I love to sleep.
  5. My husband has had to physically remove me from a potential brawl with a gypsy on the front steps of the Duomo in Milan last summer. I did not realize I was poised to pounce on the guy for making fun of my gender…..what was I thinking? He was twice my size!
  6. I’ve been a Star Wars fan ever since the first of the series came out in the 70’s.  Back then, it was unheard of for a convent school girl to like this sort of thing. “Not ladylike,” we were admonished by the nuns. It remained one of my deep dark secrets back then.
  7. I like my eggs sunny side up, medium, please.

So, here are the rules for this activity:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Thank and Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. State 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 10-15 bloggers for this award.
  5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back.

Here are my nominees for their awesome oral histories, memoire-type stories, travel stories:


People Places and Bling

Have Bag, Will Travel

Chronicles of Illusion


Lidia The Explorer

Word Craft

Joy and Woe

Lucid Gypsy

Here are my nominees for their awesome photography:

MOTION Photography

Junsjazz Images & Inspiration

I wanted to nominate some awesome photo bloggers but I already nominated them for the REALITY Award recently. They might get upset with me already….Otto and John, you’re up there on my list too!

To everyone in our WordPress family, thank you! Maraming Salamat. Merci beaucoup. Muchas gracias. Ich danke ihnen sehr. Grazie mille.

    Oh, and Star Wars rules! I’d have been a fan from the very first one too… if I had been alive when it came out. 😉
