The Versatile Blogger

Yikes!  I've been double-tagged!  L. G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and Jennifer from A Creative Exercise have both awarded me with the Versatile Blogger award!



With this award there are a few things that I need to do:

    Thank and link back to the person who sent you the award.
    Write 7 random facts about yourself.
    Nominate 7 other bloggers for the award.

Random Facts:
I recently received the Kreativ Blogger Award and revealed ten random facts about myself in addition to answering ten questions.  TMI or not, here come seven more.
  1. I prefer Star Trek over Star Wars, but love them both.
  2. I liked the new Battlestar Galactica better than the original.
  3. I was disappointed to see The 4400 cancelled.  
  4. I was even more disappointed that no season of Heroes was better than the first.  (Granted, they set the bar rather high that first year.)
  5. I'd debate long and hard over which superpower to have if I could choose only one.  (Teleportation would save me time, but telekinesis would be so cool.)
  6. I have more than 50 fantasy books (print and eBook) that I still haven't got around to reading yet.  (And I want more!)
  7. I've yet to watch Lost, The Sopranos, True Blood or A Game of Thrones.  (gasp!)
Nominations:
This is the part that gives me pause.  I've learned from experience that some bloggers won't do them, other bloggers crave them and most have already received them.  So, if you've already been tagged or don't want to participate, that's okay.  No pressure.  (I chose eight because I like breaking rules.)

  1. That means your are twice as Versatile! I agree with you on numbers 1 & 7, but don't tell anyone.

  2. I haven't watched any of the shows listed on number 7 either. Horrible confession. I haven't watched Heros either (or firefly) despite the wonderful things I've heard about it. I just don't have time for TV

    1. Ah, now Firefly I did watch. Loved it. I'm with you on TV time though. If it weren't for the DVR I'd never watch it at all.

    1. You're welcome! Yes, I wanted so much for those following seasons to be as good. Some things aren't just meant to be, I suppose.

  4. I haven't followed any of the tv shows in 7. I got to bed too early.

    Hey, your blog is growing nicely. Good job.

    1. I'm the opposite--a night owl. That wouldn't be much of a problem if it weren't for my first shift job. :) And thanks!

  5. Thanks for the award, Jeff! I never watched Star Wars, but I was a die-hard Trekker. :)

    1. Seriously?? Never?? But at least you've got one "Star" universe under your belt!

      And my pleasure!

    1. Never give up! Never surrender! Wait, wrong characters. Live long and prosper! (I always wondered why Spock didn't say, "Live long and never wear red shirts.")

  7. You have never seen Lost, True Blood, or Game of Thrones? :O That's my shocked face.

    Enjoy the award.

    PS. I miss The 4400 too.

    1. Cute shocked face there. I'll probably end up doing those like I've done other shows in the past. Pick them all up at once and have a marathon month. I did that with Rome, Smallville, Supernatural, etc. There's just something satisfying about being able to watch a serial all at once.

      I've enjoyed it. Thanks again!

    1. Thanks, Diane! I'm humbled by your mention, but so very happy that the drought ended. Sometimes the stories within us tarry, just waiting for the proper time to be told. Many congrats on your sales!
