I just made a statuette out of tinfoil, DON'T JUDGE ME.

You know why I love being a blogger? You get to accept awards in your pajamas! The fantastic Gareth at 1000 Trillion Suns has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! (Practicing a speech in front of my bathroom mirror, anyway, doesn't make me weird, does it?) Outside of giggling and preening, here are a handful of rules:

1. In a post on your, blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
2. In the same post, Add the Versatile Blogger Award.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

My Nominations:

Caroline Clemmons

Book Obsessed

L.J. Kentowski


Kathy Lynn Hall


Sarra Cannon


Alchemy of Scrawl

Charissa Weaks


Mimi Barbour

Jessica and Donna

Melissa, Anachronist, and AimeeKay

And with another curtsy back to the very generous Gareth.

And now for the random facts about me:

1) I have more colors of nail polish than I have shoes.

2) I keep my laundry change in a silver skull named Yorick.

3) I name all of my electronics. The laptop is named Nikita, my iPod is named Cameron. (Because it's a tiny machine that likes music, duh.)

4) I have to carry a day planner to remember what day it is.

5) In spite of #4, I can sing every lyric to a song I heard once six months ago.

6) Stephen King and Teddy Ruxpin are jointly responsible for my horror fascination.

7) I have a weird fetish about my pens.


  1. Aww, thank you hon! So what's that fetish all about?

  2. @L.J.

    You're very welcome!

    As for the pens, they have to be a specific brand and ink color, and I can't start on a new one until the old one is out of ink, and...I am really, weirdly uptight about it for someone who does most of her work on a laptop these days.

  3. This sooo cool. You're hilarious. I don't think I have enough tin foil in the house, so I may have to hit up Goodwill for a bowling statuette that I can alter. I love the personal stuff and share the naming things with you (computer Toby, netbook Aggie). This totally awesome honor requires some thought (besides I have some mirror talking to do) before I pass on the next round of nominees, but I will make sure they understand the magnitude of the nomination fully.

    Thanks again, Mari!

  4. Mari, thank you so much for this award. I like Red Mojo Mama's idea of getting a statue from Goodwill. I can change the name can't I? I don't know what to do about the figure's sports pose, but I'll come up with something.

  5. @Red Mojo Mama

    You're very welcome! With a little spray paint, Precious Moments children can be made to work, too.

    @Caroline Clemmons

    You're welcome! Don't underestimate the power of the Barbie, either.

  6. Nice blog....Following you, follow me if you wish......I will keep on visited..
