Hey, I’m VERSATILE, WooHoo!

November 8, 2010


Staci at JustBloggled gave me an award! It’s the Versatile Blogger Award, woohooo! I feel so special. Actually, I had no idea she reads my blog. I wonder how many others of you lurkers are out there, huh? :thinky:

According to the dictionary, versatile means:

capable of or adapted for turning easily from one to another of various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.

That’s a nice way of saying that I’m horribly impatient and easily bored, and can turn from one thng to another very quickly. Yep, suits me perfectly. :jetters:

The award requires me to state seven things about myself. Oh goody. Here’s more for the Google information troll…

I always quiver inside when I grasp the handle to the WalMart shopping cart. Did the person before me have sanitized hands? I think not. :ermm:

2.) My least favorite room in the house in the bathroom. WHAT a BORING room. I could never understand how some people can spend countless hours in there…. what do they DO all day? Me, I like to do my business and get out; there are things to do. I used to get so angry as a kid, because I resented my bladder interrupting my very important play or work time. Yes, that’s my impatient character rising up again…

3.) I was a DJ for a number of years; at age 19, I had my own radio morning show. I LOVED the job, because I was allowed absolute creativity. However, the music was horribly raunchy. It was a Top 40 station (playing Top 40 songs from the 1950s to the 1980s). During the late 80s, the songs had become increasingly raunchy, obscene, and not musical at all. I was embarrassed to play some of the stuff. So I went to work at a Christian radio station. The music was MUCH better there, but there was no creativity allowed. Too bad. I think the perfect working environment would be great music and the freedom to be creative. I sometimes dream of working at a radio station again… but the dream turns to a nightmare because I am on the air without knowing how to use all this new-fangled digital equipment…

Gah, aren’t we to #7 yet? I have things to do! ……

4.) In case you haven’t been following my home blog, I like to do a lot of stuff around the house. I like creating things. I am so happy that I can do my own wiring, and have even learned how to add breakers to the circuit panel without electrocuting myself! I don’t like plumbing, though, and I HATE HANGING SHEETROCK!

5.) I just love dumb jokes. This is probably why God had my husband marry me, because I am the only person on earth who laughs at his dumb jokes. Worse still, he tells me the SAME JOKE later, and I laugh again! I have this strange propensity to forget punch lines. So tell me the same joke over and over (and over and over and over– right, honey?) and i still laugh just as hard.

OO OO OO! Here’s a great joke, real funny!

Why did the skeleton go to the party alone?

He had no body to go with him!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s funny, don’t you think??

:blink: Okwhatever…

6.) OK OK… #6 #6…. ummmm …. I told my daughter that I’d be up in 15 minutes to wire her bedroom’s baseboard heater (so they can, like, HAVE HEAT this winter), and I don’t know what to write here…. OH! I know! I don’t work well under pressure! Actually, pressure has the reverse effect on me, and I usually wind up TOTALLY BOMBING my project when I feel stressed.

7.) TADAAA! OK… It bugs me that our culture is so foul-mouthed today. I was shopping for mugs and t-shirts recently, and was appalled at the potty-mouthed vernacular out there. We’re AMERICANS. We’re supposed to be educated, be social- we’ve got the best of everything, we’re SO blessed in this country! Why does not our language reflect this? I’m a writer, I love words. Words mean things. I wish our social pendulum would swing in favor of decency and beautiful edifying language, instead of dropping further and further into the sewer. There’s nothing beautiful about &@^&%@!&%!

So there you have it, SEVEN things! Yay! I made it! Now you know ALL ABOUT ME. So when Big Brother throws me into the gulag, they’ll be able to look up my file in the Google databanks and torment me by making me listen to foul-mouthed raunchy music while I am forced to hang Sheetrock in the bathroom! noooooooooooooooooo

    Congratulations on your versatile award! Awards are always fun to get, no matter how many you’ve had. By the way, you are not the only one who laughs at your husband’s jokes… I do too. I actually think he’s quite amusing. šŸ™‚

    I remember myself with #3. I was also a DJ before and I remember a time walking out of the booth because I can’t take the song that’s been playing on air. Its a good exposure though.

    Uh oh, and I wrote that I cuss like a sailor on my post. Oops. I can blame it on my years in the transportation industry, but I think my mom was a cusser from way back when. That said, I do not cuss on my blog and I don’t like the language of today’s music either. I also cringe at all the singing about sex. I think some cultures are really into that. Ugh.

    Moe loves Ken’s jokes, he comes home and tells me them. They don’t get to see much of each other anymore though since they separated them. They probably did that since they are bad together lol
