Versatile Blogger...yay!

A little termite gave me this award...the versatile blogger award!

Here are the rules of this award:
1. Thanks and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award to other bloggers.

Soooo -
Thank you, Termite, for the award and amusement of reading your answers. Yours are better than answers I could ever make up!
Here goes:
1. When I was a little kid I narrated my entire life in my head. I dramatized, too. "Grace saw the anger in her mother's eyes, though she tried to hide it. 'Stop feeding your baby brother dog kibbles,' she said crisply."
I kept this up until I was, oh, 6 or 7.
2. I don't like sweet beverages of any kind. I attempt to drink pumpkin lattes to celebrate the season but secretly I find them disgusting.
3. I have seven brothers. Six are younger than I and one is older, but he's not very mature so 90% of the time I slip and say I have seven younger brothers.
4. I speed-read and it annoys the heck out of my husband when we are sharing the newspaper.
5. Signs containing grammatical errors or spelling mistakes chill my blood. I actually keep a Sharpie in my purse with which to make corrections.
6. I don't like to watch movies because I can't sit still for that long.
7. For some reason I love that musty cellar or attic smell. Love it.

I decided I'm making this into a versatile reader award... so if you're reading... tell me 7 things about yourself!


  1. #6 - girl, i'm so with you! i'm so bad, if i do sit to watch a movie, i have to be doing something as well as watching. i.e. - reading a book, needlepoint, organizing a drawer.

    isn't that sad?? lmao! :-/

  2. Oh my gosh, I can't believe you narrated your life in your head as a little kid. That's hilarious. I can never just sit and watch a movie. So antsy!

  3. 1. I just tried your pants altering technique and it worked like a charm. I blogged about it so I'll put the link at the bottom of this comment.
    2. My mother and I are left handed but my brother and dad are right handed.
    3. I hate raisins and celery.
    4.I wrote a play that was performed by a theater company in Jacksonm, Ms when I was 17.
    5. I'm named for my great great grandmother's nickname.
    6. My first job was being a tour guide.
    7. I've experienced zero gravity as part of a NASA program during college- it was awesome.

    Anyway, here's the link to how I altered my pants! Thanks for the awesome tutorial!

  4. I love that you narrated your life, makes me think of Cameron Diaz's character in The Holiday!! I laughed that you slip and say you have 7 younger brothers, I think you just stick with that :)I can't sit still for movies at home but in a theatre I can but I believe the theatre is overrpriced and really HOW do they get away with charging $20 for popcorn and a drink????? Despite the sizes we know how cheap it is to make popcorn and fountain drinks!!!

  5. #1 - I always tell my daughter she'll grow up to be a sports color commentator, because she narrates her whole life, but out loud

  6. I totally agree with #2, #4 and #7!!

    I am a versatile have posted my 7 on my blog:
