The Versatile Blogger Award

Last week, someone I always enjoy reading, the highly accomplished writer/blogger J.D. over at RADIATOR HEAVEN, received worthy acclaim when he was bestowed with The Versatile Blogger award. This is an ideal prize for someone so multi-talented like him. You can add the word generous, too, because he shared his award with moi. To say the least, I am very honored to be in the same company with J.D. and the others he shared this with. Thank you, my friend. Following his example, I'll try "passing on this award to other blogs that I enjoy reading and that inspire me."

The Rules for the Award:
  • Thank the person who gave you this award (see above)
  • Share 7 things about yourself (see below)
  • Pass the award along to 15 who you have recently discovered and who you think fantastic for whatever reason (in no particular order - see way below)
  • Contact the blogs you picked and let them know about the award.

So... here are those 7 things:
  1. I met my future wife at work by the copy machine (decades ago when the devices were large, rare, and expensive).
  2. I can't stand the taste of coconut. Never have... never will. It doesn't matter even if you try to hide it in a candy bar like Almond Joy or Mounds, it ain't going down.
  3. Through the years, I've tried to visit many of the location sites from my favorite L.A. Movies (you can ask my wife).
  4. I adore brunettes.
  5. Though I can't eat them like I once could, one of my favorite See's Candy is a Tipperary Bon Bon (I acquired a taste for them from my mother)
  6. I once was flexible enough I could place and hold my forehead onto my straighten legs (sadly, those days are long gone)
  7. I do not suffer from Triskaidekaphobia -- in fact, I'm the polar opposite of that ;-).

And... I like to share this award with:

    There you go again, being too kind to me. What am I going to do with you??

    Seriously, thanks so much for this. When I'm up at 4 a.m. wondering why I'm sweating over a post, I'll think of you reading it and say, "That's why."

    That's sexy how you met your wife. You know what people do on copy machines in porn movies, right? I mean, ahem, *cough* I don't know, either. That's why I'm asking.

  7. You're so wonderful! I'm going to do this RIGHT NOW so I don't forget. I seem to be so forgetful lately! :)

  8. Hearty congratulations, le0pard13!  And I'm very chuffed to be amongst those wonderful bloggers you've passed this award on to.  Thank you!  I've enjoyed learning seven things about you.  I have much higher respect for the humble copy machine now...

  9. It's my honor to share this with you, Poncho.

  10. Too funny, Elyse (but I'm dying to find out). That 4 AM schedule you keep, and what you write, make you so deserving of this. Thanks.

  11. I look forward to that, Jen. Thanks very much.

  12. Thank you, Shell. I very much enjoy your work.

  13. Thanks so much for including me with such a great group of bloggers! :)

  14. You're very much welcome, Elizabeth. Thank you for the RT and being such a generous and creative blogger.

  15. Thanks for that. I'll be passing mine along soonest.

  16. You are very welcome, my friend. Thanks.

  17. Congrats and thanks! You're too kind! *blush* :)   Very fun to learn your 7 things. Must spend some time thinking of 15...

  18. Glad to share the award your way, Rachel. You're welcome and thanks.

  19. 如此動感的blog!!!.................................................................                           

  20. Congrats.  That was cool to read.  I got this award on one of my blogs.  I need to do this myself.

  21. Very kind of you to say, Keith. And congrats on your well deserved award, my friend.

  22. Just wanted to let you know, my next scheduled post was already choc-a-block, but I have not forgotten your kind gesture, and will attend to this on my next post.  Have a lovely weekend!

  23. Thanks for keeping me posted. Same to you, Shell.
