Versitile Blogger

Well I am feelig slightly honoured here, Sarah Mac over at peopledonteatenoughfudge is not only very cool and mysterious as she has got different coloured eyes that give her real magical powers but she has also gone and awarded me the versitile blogger award which I have to admit I am slightly scared about as I have no idea if I have enough interesting things to say. I honestly believe both times I went into hospital and the boys were lifted out of the sunroof, the surgeons reached a little too high and also managed to remove a portion of my brain and as my husband has always speculated that there is a dark, vacuous space in my head anyway, it was brain I could ill afford to lose and I find I have huge memory issues these days. So what was I saying? Only joking.

So anyhow, there are rules to recieving this award which are as follows:

  1. Thank the blogger who has awarded you and link back to them
  2. Share 7 things about yourself
  3. Pass the award along to 15 other newly discovered blogs.
Sounds simple enough, I can do bullet 1 very easily, bullet 2 is proving slightly more difficult due to the memory loss issues (see above), and bullet 3 - I just hope I know enough bloggers!!

So here goes on my interesting things lists:

  1. When travelling I like to at least try local delicacies, absorb a bit of the culture, so when in Israel many years ago I actually ate Ox's testicles - yes I was slightly merry and yes they were disgusting.
  2. I use to be a forensic scientist but its nothing like CSI.
  3. The second toe on my right foot is affectionately called my 'mutant toe' by my husband as it will not bend even when I try really hard and screw all my other toes up, it still stick out straight and looks like I am giving people the finger, well the toe.
  4. I have an ambition to be able to run a half marathon one day, currently and a recurring theme which has been ongoing since school age, I am not even capable of running half a mile let alone half a marathon, despite being able to swim 50 lengths easily, regularly do aerobics etc. I just don;t seem to be able to run.
  5. I have a real adversion to margarine/butter, not only do I hate the smell and the taste, it actually makes my skin crawl, and god forbid if I get any on my skin.
  6. I lost my virginity in a banana field, after gatecrashing a live gig and I can't even remember the name of the band.
  7. I once vommitted from my bedroom window due to alcohol over the bonnet of my Dad's car, and then blamed my next door neighbour - it was snowing at the time and I thought that would 'wash' the sick away, and I also failed to see the splatters of sick down the front door and lounge windows.
So now to name 15 bloggers who deserve this award - here goes Deb at Aspieinthefamily; Tessa at Apples and Autobots; BNM over at BareNakedMummy; Bod for tea; Carly over at mylifeincolour; dreamingofbeer; Lizbeth at fourseastars; 1978Rebecca at here come the girls; Lakeside single mum; Looking for Blue Sky; Mum of all trades; Not yet a yummy mummy; the scrummy mummy; This Mid 30s Life; and last but not least Would like to be a yummy mummy.

Thank you!!! If I EVER have time to post again, I'll be sure to pick this one up! LOL

bod for tea said...

Why thank you! Nice to be thought of as versatile. Rather than just rambling inanely about whatever comes into my head... :D

These made me laugh RP, though you were going to say you couldn't remember the name of the boy ;)

My son has mutant little toe nails, they curl up just like his Dad's. Still, he could have inherited FAR worse things from him!

I'd like to run a half marathon too (if only it didn't involve actual running)

Loved the puke story, I once had a saucepan named after me due to a similar alcohol related incident.

Thanks for the nomination! How lovely. Very funny and honest post. I was wondering if you could remember the name of the boy in number 6 too! Glad someone else can't hold their drink either. I'm such a cheap date!

Strangely enough I remember all things from the past including this boy's name, but not because he was anything special infact he was a bit of a pratt and one I was glad to leave behind in Israel, so imagine my surprise and distress when he showed up in the November of my first year on my door step having seen me walking past a window and he tracked me down! I promised to call and well, hummm, I forgot :)
Just ti prove my memory issues, I text my best friend today to wish her happy birthday and she text back to say thanks and thanks for both the birthday cards I sent which arrived 2 days apart, oppps V embarrassed!!

Some great stuff :) Thanks for the award - I don't know if I'll have the nerve to reveal so much....and I'd love to know what being a forensic scientist is really like: perhaps you'd write about it sometime?

Deb at Aspieinthefamily said...

So happy to be thought about. I'm having such a rubbish time at the moment, I really need something good. Love your list - gave me a much needed laugh (much better than crying which is something I'm close to at the moment). But no. 7 - did your dad ever find out?
