This evening, the lovely Priceless Joy over at Some Day I Will Get This Write bestowed upon me the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks so much! This is a lovely honor and I’m excited to pass along the award to other blogs I follow/love.
As part of the deal, I have to both nominate 15 other bloggers and share with you seven things about myself. . .
I’m not sure which of these is going to be harder! 😉

*Whew!* I follow a lot of great blogs, but these are the ones I read the most often, I think. And I’m always looking for more, especially about books, cooking, and composition (duh!).
Now, onto Seven Interesting Things about Me.
This is going to be hard. I’m not really that interesting.
- Although I haven’t danced formally in almost five years, I still self-identify first and foremost as a dancer. I’m always choreographing routines to music I hear, and I often do pirouettes in the kitchen, using our fridge as a mirror.
- My hair is currently the longest its ever been in my entire life.
- I didn’t see The Dark Knight until 2011. I blamed it for Heath Ledger’s death and refused to watch it.
- I saw Catching Fire on Monday and busted my own lip in the middle of it.
- I have an unhealthy obsession with watching the Food Network. I particularly like the competitive shows like Chopped, Cupcake Wars, and Cutthroat Kitchen.
- I once watched a marathon of Doomsday Preppers. I got very good and predicting what the judges would say about the prep work, and it scared me.
- I am horribly, horribly bothered by the way shopping encroaches on Thanksgiving. I am disgusted by the many retailers that have chosen to open for Black Friday at some point on Thanksgiving Day this year. Why can’t we let people have some time off and enjoy spending it with people they care about, rather than working for low wages and being treated rudely by consumers?
Well. Sorry for that soapbox there in Number 7. I’m watching a Thanksgiving special of SNL with my mom, and it just kind of flew out of my fingers!
Another special thanks to my nominator! If you have questions about the Versatile Blogger Award (or you were nominated and you want to see the rules), visit the VBA Blog.
