The Versatile Blogger Award

Apparently, Ruth Davis Hayes got it in her mind that I should receive this fine award you see to your left.  I am honoured!  So before you read the insanity that spewed in tendrils from my fingertips, you ought to scurry forth and check out her uber-groovy website!

So here is how this is gonna work.  I am supposed to tell you 7 random things about me.  At the end of this mess, I'll challenge other writers/bloggers/all-round-badass Sith in training, so prepare yourselves, I know who you are.

So let's just get down to bwass tax, shall we?


  1. When I was baby/toddler, Gerber's Blueberry Buckle was my favourite baby food.  On into adulthood, I would occasionally pick up a jar, because blueberries.  Since they seem to have stopped making it, I have found the perfect replacement - blueberry pie filling.

  2. I became a fan of XTC by way of The Dukes of Stratosphear, who is actually XTC photgraphed using some kind of mystery Acid trip lens filter.

  3. Although I'm not proud of it, I have to admit that I have a knack for Macchiavellian activity.  If that makes me a high functioning sociopath, then so be it.  Just because I have the ability doesn't mean I use it.

  4. I think this is connected with #3:  I have had strong evangelical abilities from the age of around 4 and throughout my life.  I actually wanted to be a preacher as a kid but, because I had no danglies and it was still the 70s, when women were still expected to play certain roles, one of which was definitely not preaching, I had no proper (or what I thought was proper at the time) outlet.  When my uncle commented in 1982 that I had converted the entire family to the Electric Light Orchestra, I realised you don't necessarily have to be evangelising about god. I have since evangelised about a lot of things and people.  Praise be.

  5. I had my head humped by a Beagle in 1987 and I was French-kissed by a Senegal Parrot just a couple of months ago.

  6. I once wrote a weekly report for which I was responsible at work completely in Rap form.  That experience gave me a new level of respect, even awe, for Rappers.  Because that shit is hard!

  7. I once translated ABBA's "I Have a Dream" into Lasha-Talourah, the language of the Tarmi.

Now, whom do I want to victimise with this meme?  Let's see some action from chris_walsh, vulpine137, polypolyglot, xevokitty, and stacymichelleb. Hop to it, people!
