Versatile Blogger

I'm not sure I am eligible for any blog related awards, but I have been "nominated" by my friend & fellow blogger, Lisa Betz (visit her blog HERE).

I"m very thankful that....

This award nomination is pure fun.

The Versatile Blogger Award simply requires that I share seven facts about myself. The seriousness or significance of said facts was not specified. So I decided to opt for silliness.

But first, the rules:

  1. Show the award on your blog
  2. Thank the person who nominated you.
  3.  Share 7 facts about yourself.
  4.  Nominate 5 blogs.
  5. Link your nominee’s blogs and let them know.
Thank you Lisa fearless writing friend! Your wit is always good for a giggle. It's thanks to you that I have blogged more consistently these past 6 months than I did in the 5 years prior! I do hope you enjoy reading goes nothing!
7 fun or fascinating facts about me....oh boy! 

1. Right brained or left brained? What would you say I am? Most people are predominantly one or
the other, correct?

  • EVERY single test (okay maybe those online quizzes don't really count as tests) I've ever taken, I come out equally right & left brained. YUP...exactly 50%
  • For those of you who know me well, you know that this information has set me free to be uniquely me! 
  • I've never understood how I can visualize the big picture yet all the details too! OR make a logical decision while being such an emotional person! OR love the sequential nature of math while being super creative!
2. My maiden name was Suttle (pronounce just like "subtle") and to those of you who don't know me...I tend to be anything but...I am Sicilian afterall, and what red-blooded Italian do you know that is truly subtle by nature? Now...understand that I believe Sicilian's are even more intense than their mainland "cousins" ;)

3. I am destined to be a Princess.  I am not only a King by marriage, but I am related to royalty as well. My family on my dad's side are direct descendants to Mary, Queen of Scots (also known as Mary Stuart)...a lineage that Henry VIII cut off from the throne for his illegitimate daughter, Elizabeth! Check out some details on her life HERE. Every see the movie King Ralph? That COULD be me....maybe, one day if the right storm hit! Watch the first 3 minutes to see what happened!

4. I was BatMAN for halloween. 

  • Yes, you read that correctly, I forget what age I was but my mom said I insisted on being Batman. She asked if I meant Batwoman & I said NO! BatMAN! So, I was Batman once...homemade costume from my mom & all! 
  • The old Adam West Batman episodes were some of mine & my brother's favorite moments growing up! 
  • "Same Bat time....same Bat channel...nananananananana...Batman!"
  • Nothing quite like those old school...biff! pow! wham! 
5. I am hooked on Once Upon A Time! I've always loved tv & movies...but have NEVER ever been hooked on a tv show like I am this one. I don't know what it is about the show...if it's the characters, the writers, the actors, the storylines...what I do know is that it is so different from anything I've seen on tv & it's fantastic! The twists & turns in the plots, the new characters...every season ends & I think there is no way they can continue another season. Yet, each season they come back and surprise me. Some surprises are better than others, but they do still surprise and that is hard to do these days on tv. If the trailer below intrigues you too...catch up on Hulu!

6. I am a night owl who does enjoy a good sunrise too! (Another right-brain/left-brain issue perhaps?) Sunrises are so beautiful & I have tried so hard to reprogram my body to prefer mornings over late no avail. So, I stay up late, work a fairly flexible job that allows me to start work at 10am or later and enjoy the occasional sunrise when I need to be up early! They truly are the best reason to wake up early...though I can't do it with too many late nights! LOL

7. I am a procrastinator. Always have been & probably always will be...but I always make my deadline! Pulled my share of late or all nighters over the years (see #6) I tend to procrastinate most with the mundane, everyday tasks of life...I don't know why, I just do. Sigh...this is not a favored trait of mine. Given the opportunity to give away one of my character traits it would be this one. (As I'm typing this, I SHOULD be finishing up my laundry & running the vacuum cleaner...I guess I better wrap this up quickly, cuz the bills just won't pay themselves!) I wonder if this relates to #5 as love for a show based on fairy tales...maybe I just always believed little elves or fairies would come & magically complete all the things I hasn't worked yet. Perhaps if I clicked my slippers 3 times & home needs help. my home needs help.  Nope! Okay, back to the real world.............
in just one minute!

Finally, (cue drumroll) the nominations:
Janet Zimmerman (been too long since ya blogged ;) )
Dina Porter (it's been even longer since you blogged!! :) )
