I’m going to play – and change the rules a little.
This rather wonderful award came to me via a wonderful Taswegian* lass, the Meandering Matriarch … go visit … say ‘Hi’ … pat the chooks – they’re friendly.
The acceptance rules are as follows:
- Thank the blogger who nominated me
- Place the award on my site.
- Share 7 random things about myself.
- Nominate 15 blogs. Let them know they’ve been nominated and how to accept the award.
So here we go:
1 – see above, and, “Thanks again, MM”.
2 – see above, and soon-to-be-on-the-sidebar, over there, to the right.
3 – 7 Random things:
I’m fascinated by Earth’s primordial geology.
I think Rock-n-Roll of the 1950’s-60’s is the bestest music eveah for dancing and making-out!
Hand-held puppets (the ones that ventriloquists use) give me the heebie-jeebies.
I’m a cat person. (read well-trained cat staff-person)
The three major relationships in my adult life have all been with Virgos.
When I see the first snowfall of the season I have to go out and play in it.
I have a terrible memory. I have ‘Notes to Self’ all over the house. Now, where was I? …
4 – 15 blogs (in no particular order) – This is the one I’m going to change. I’m not fond of this ‘tag’ part of the nomination process, (it’s too much like playing favourites in school when you had to choose kids to be on your ‘team’. There was always someone who didn’t get picked) so I’m going to go with 15 out of the whole bunch of blogs I regularly read and find value in. Some are professional blogs about writing, some are just for fun, and some are frogs**. Please feel free to play this game as you wish and do steps 1, 2, 3, and 4.
“If a woman writes about family and about the connections between people and want it means to be alive in this day and time, it’s called women’s fiction. And if a man does it , it’s nominated for a National Book Award” – Jodi Picoult
