Day 129: Blog love part Deux

I have been nominated by the lovely http://matchamochimoo.wordpress.com/ for the VERSATILE BLOGGER award.

She has a great blog with some great recipes. Check her out.

Blog nominations are great and remind me that others are seeing my rumblings and that they relate to my words. It’s also a great way to let others know that you read their bogs and are inspired by what they do.

As a recipient of this award, there are a few rules.

Display the award certificate on your website

• Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award (above)

• Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers (Versatile Blogger)
- see end of my post for list)

• Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

• Post 7 interesting things about yourself

Seven Interesting Facts About Me:

This is a tough one. I am not really sure what other people would find interesting about me because I think I am quite average.

But I’ll just state random facts about myself and you will be the judge as to weather they are interesting or not.

  • -I read. A lot. In 2011 I read about 54 books. And in 2012 I read about 73 books. I read really fast and can take about 2 days to finish a book I find really interesting, however I have been trying to read “The Brothers Karamazov” for about two years now and for some reason cannot finish it. It’s the one book I really want to read but I’m stuck about half way through. Maybe this will be my year.
  • -I scored high enough in my law school entrance exam to qualify for Mensa. http://www.mensa.org/. I actually sent in my application and got accepted. I just haven’t gotten around to paying for my membership fee and being a fully-fledged member of the Mensa community. Then I can say I have something in common with Sharon stone.
  • I am a vegetarian. Since about April 1st 2010.  Its something I had toyed around with for a while but then decided to do it cold turkey. My last meat meal was with some friends at 4am in the morning at waffle house. (Crazy things we do in college)
  • My motto in life is “ an unexamined life is not worth living.” I always say believe nothing and question everything
  • I took a Greek mythology class and it was the final push that made me an atheist.
  • My secret dream is to become a farmer. I’m in law school now and that’s my passion but I really wanna be a farmer
  • I hope to travel through all of Europe before I turn 40.

  1. Thank you so much! Very cool to be nominated 🙂 when I have a free momet today I will do everything needed! Thanks again!

  2. Hi Veggie Reader, I posted this response on my blog before I read the requirements. I still plan to do it, but will need to set aside some time, it’s a hectic week. Thanks so much for nominating me. I follow you because you are fresh, honest and upbeat. Each post you reveal what a wonderful spirit you have. Plus, anyone who can write as easily about the marathon as they can marinara sauce has definitely got it going on. Thanks for the endorsement and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to you.
