A Gift From Justine: The Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger AwardI really need to get on top of things (I seem to say that a lot…).  The wonderful Justine from Justine’s Movie Blog nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award nearly two months ago.  Here I am to finally accept it.  I guess there are some rules I have to follow:

  •  Post the award on your site
  •  Thank the person who nominated you
  •  Share 7 facts about yourself
  •  Nominate 15 blogs
  •  Link to your nominees’ site

Thank you Justine for the nomination!  If you have never been to her blog, go check it out! Or even if you have, go again.  She writes some pretty great movie reviews and keeps you up-to-date on the comings and goings of films on Netflix.  Now, a few facts about me:

  • Apparently I have never said this here on my blog before, but I am a redhead.  I also have blue eyes.  This is a rare combination since both traits are recessive genes.  That’s right, I’m a rare species!
  • The three subjects I consider myself the most knowledgeable in are the Marvel comics universe, Star Wars (both the movies and the fictional universe before Disney cleared it), and aquariums.  The first two of which I can’t really do anything with.
  • I have always had potted plants indoors, but last year I tried my hand at outdoor gardening (not landscaping, that I’ve done before).  It’s been a blast so far.  My flower beds are doing great and this year I put in a strawberry patch which is doing quite successful at the moment.
  • I’m from the US but I say “bloody” all the time (it seems to be very uncommon here).  I started saying it as a way to not curse around my younger siblings and it eventually crept into my every day rhetoric.  People who haven’t talked with me much often call me out on it.
  • I watch Wheel of Fortune on a regular basis.
  • I’m an avid gamer.  I don’t discriminate, I play on consoles, PC, and handhelds.  Anyone want to exchange 3DS and/or Wii U friend codes?
  • I agree with Justine that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the best video game of all time.  It’s my favorite video game for sure, although I did enjoy its sequel, Majora’s Mask, quite a bit and have heard some compelling arguments why it’s better than OoT.

Here are my nominations for the Awesome Versatile Blogger Award

If you don’t participate in awards, I understand. I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for being awesome! 🙂

Phew, and that finally does it. Thanks again to Justine for the nomination!

Cheers.
