Versatile Blogger Award

Hello!  First of all, Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!  I'm spending the afternoon with Quinn, because this is her favorite holiday.  She and her ma are making corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, soda bread, mint cupcakes, and lime kool-aid!  Can't wait to get a big bowl full of veggies!

Secondly (and perhaps most importantly), my pal Sophie nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award!  A big thanks to her for that!  I get a bit lazy at times and forget to update, but this blog is hands-down my favorite project and I always appreciate being remembered.  =)  

So now I get to give you seven completely random tidbits.  =D

1.  Well, this really is random, but every time I read the title of the award, I see Versailles!  Probably because Sophie is French.  =D
2.  I hate wearing shoes.  If I could, I'd go barefoot all the time!  I know that it's dangerous to walk outside like that, but I can't help it!  When I go into my yard, I love to feel the grass between my toes.  =)
3.  I'm in the sign language club at my school.  I'm not deaf, nor do I actually know anyone who is, but I always found ASL so interesting and have always wanted to learn it.
4.  When I first started having a lot of trouble at school with Claire, my parents wanted me to switch schools.  I took an entrance exam for a very exclusive boarding school and got accepted, but I didn't want to leave home.  Even though I still have trouble with Claire from time to time, I'm glad I stayed because I have so many great friends here.
5.  My dad owns his own store.  It's a video rental place / comic book store.  It's one of my favorite places in the world because I love both comic books and movies, and at least one night a week there's a group there gaming -- either video games or Dungeons and Dragons.
6.  My favorite non-religious holiday is Halloween.  My favorite religious holidays are Hanukkah and Purim.
7.  Sometimes I fantasize about going to live in some big city, but I think I'd get tired of it pretty fast and find it impersonal.  

Now, for my nominations!  It was pretty hard to pick since there are so many different blogs I love and I could only pick four, but I did eventually decide.  

1. The Greens and Roses
2.  Edie
3.  Haley
4.  Sabine

1. In a post on your blog, nominate 4 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.

6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each
their blogs.


  1. Merci, Wendy!
    It was nice to read some facts about you! I thought it said "Versailles", too. It must be because I'm around the Sun Queens everyday.

  2. Sign Language Club? If you mentioned that before, I must've forgotten. ASL seems like such a hard language to learn. I don't know how I'd remember all of the signs! That being said, it's a pretty cool language, and that's one of the reasons I watch the show "Switched at Birth." Do you ever watch that?

    Versatile DOES look like Versailles, I do agree with you! It's probably because we tend to pay attention to the beginnings and the ends of words, ignoring the middle letters.

    Happy Saint Patrick's Day! I'll admit that I don't really celebrate it, but that Irish cuisine sounds really good. And mint cupcakes? Yum!


  3. Sounds like a fun way to spend St. Patrick's Day!

    I love Halloween, too.

    Thanks for the nomination! We'll try to work on a post for it soon. :-)

    (Of course, all our online stuff will be happening slower than usual because we're out of town on vacation.)


  4. Hi Wendy! I think learning sign language would be cool. Maybe I can find a class for that. And we joke that Halloween is the main holiday here after Christmas. We love it!

    hugs ~ Kiki
