Thank you, Kristina at Speakeasy, for honoring me with the Versatile Blogger Award nomination!! (What wonderful things happen when you’re out of town!:))
Those nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award simply thank their nominator and link to his/her blog, choose 15 blogs to nominate, and tell the nominator seven things about themselves.
I can’t possibly list all of the blogs that have inspired me, but here are some I enjoy quite a bit:
For their classic film coverage, which is witty, wise, and informative:
- Girls Do Film
- The Blonde at the Film
- Margaret Perry.org
- Sister Celluloid
- Cinematically Insane
- Ramblings of a Cinephile
- Outspoken and Freckled
- Mildred’s Fatburgers
Because I love her desserts: Chocolate-Covered Katie
I’m not stylish enough to get all of her outfits, but love her writing style: My Edit
For her much-appreciated assistance with #2 below: Putting Me Together
Because they make me laugh:
Seven Things about Me:
1-Festivals and museums devoted to peculiar subjects make me happy, probably because my extended family resembles this one:
Don’t miss the Spam Museum.
2-I am hopelessly fashion challenged. My taste was formed in this decade:
3-My cat loves BBQ. And oatmeal, and potato chips, and pretty much anything he once found in the dumpster where he was discovered. Still today, he trash dives, like a dog.
He is named Rico after the anti-hero of this film due to his similar over-the-top personality, large ego, and shaky grasp on sanity.
4-I own two copies of Brainsmasher…a Love Story (the second was a gift, in case my original became too worn down).
6-My favorite quote is from Pride and Prejudice. The heroine, Elizabeth, is at an awkward gathering, and no one knows what to say until the food arrives: “There was now employment for the whole party—for though they could not all talk, they could all eat….” This line perfectly describes why I station myself at the buffet table at every party I attend.
7-I own a Jane Austen action figure and a Dude bobble head. They stare at each other in my office, and are equally inspiring.
