You like me, you really like me!

She stands 5'6" and is 56 pounds lighter than she did just five months ago. She writes on average 20 posts a month and endeared me to her blog when she wrote of green poo from eating too many black gummi bears. If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm referring to Carbie Girl, and she has bestowed the honour of awarding me the Versatile blogger award.

Verstile:  ver-sa-tile [vur-suh-tl] or, especially British, [vur-suh-tahyl]:  capable of, or adapted for, turning easily from one to another various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.:  a versatile writer.
Word information source:

So, as a recipient of the Versatile Blogger Award, I must share seven things about myself and pass the award on to 15 newly discovered bloggers.

Seven things about me:
1. My husband and I have the same birthday: same year, month and day.
2. I have a friend who actually likes the movie Waterworld.
3. When I was 12, I was in a Tampax tampons print ad.
4. When snorkeling in Tobermorey,  I discovered that I have a fear of ship wrecks.
5. Last night I discovered that fruit flies freak me out too.
6. I love to eat broccoli and feta cheese pizza.
7. I've had a bruise on my back in the shape of a pool filter.

Fifteen newly discovered bloggers 
1. A Mamacita @ Confessions of a Mamacita 
4. Brian @ The Angry Porkchop
6. Michelle @ Can't Fail Again
8. Bonnie @ Fat-be-gone
9. Miss S. @ Follow Me Down 
10. Miss April @ 30 Before 30
11. Poison @ A New Poison
12. Muchberry @ I'm just Puffy
13. Karen @ Waisting Time
14. Millie @ See Millie Tri
15. MB @ Why the Weight

I consider myself to be a new blogger, so everyone is newly discovered to me....

Thanks Carbie Girl and thanks to all bloggers for sharing your journey and point of view!


  1. Ah thank you:) I love blog awards. I have my next several posts planned so it will be a little while until I get around to this one. Now I am off to check out some "new to me" blogs...

    How amazing that you share that birthday!

  2. Thank you! I'm actually more deserving of the "The Lazy Blogger" award. =)

  3. Well, thank you. Man 15! Lordy.

    I think you are a versatile blogger - I think it is fitting. You mix it up, try new things, pitch the duds and keep the stars - Very versatile!

    I love others random lists about themselves. Although technically 2 is not about you, it does show your dedication to strange friends which I consider a giant plus for me!

    I too love broccoli feta pizza.

    I am guessing you did not show the Tampon ad to boys. Bummer to not be able to use that. LOL

  4. Karen - you know what is even more crazy, my FIL has the same birthday as well (except the year of course).

    Brian - just don't leave us hangin' for too long.

    Munchberry - Thanks! Yes, all the boys in my school knew about the tampon ad (my full name was on it), I became sort of a spokesperson for all us newly menstruating girls.

  5. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I'm very honored to receive this award (again!). The first time was way back in 7/2010 -

    I love broccoli and feta cheese but have never had them together on a pizza. I'm going to have to try it soon (not that I need an excuse to eat pizza).

    I've really been struggling with time management lately. I can't seem to find the time to do anything but work, sleep and eat but I'm going to do my best to get a post up soon.

    Thanks so much for thinking of me.


Thanks for your comments, I love to hear what you have to say. While you are here, why don't you follow my blog too.

Also: I'm starting to get spam, so I've made the decision to moderate comments (unfortunately).
