Versatile Blogger Award

Wow, I'm so terrible!  I completely forgot about this!!  :(

Last week, Stephanie from Tickled Pink in the Rain nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award, and I meant to get to it over the weekend, but completely forgot!  I'm so sorry Stephanie!  Thank you so much for the award, and don't think it's cause I don't appreciate the nomination, because that is definitely not the case!!

So here goes!  First off, what is the Versatile Blogger Award?  Well.. I'm not 100% sure, but when I look here, it lists all the rules, so I think it's basically like the Liebester Award - a way of sharing blogs you follow with your readers :)

So all I have to do is give you guys 7 facts about me that you don't already know, then nominate a bunch of bloggers :)  Here we go!!

Fun Facts (some of you may already know these from interacting with me on my Facebook page, but oh well):

1.  I over-use emoticons when I am chatting or texting (or writing blog posts).  Seriously, if you look back in blog posts, or chat with me at all you will notice it!  I notice it the most when I am chatting with Tyler on MSN (yep, we still use MSN to talk) and I have some sort of emoticon in everything that I type to him.  I am just afraid of what I say coming across the wrong way, so I want to make sure the reader understands my tone :)  <-- see, did it again!

2.  I am right handed, and have a tendency to do my polish base colour on both hands, but nail art only on my left hand.  I know, that doesn't help develop my left-handed artistic skills, but .. well .. I'm too lazy to worry about it sometimes.  Unless I'm doing stamping or something simple like that :)

3.  I don't deal well with people, I am totally not a people-person.. and I work in customer service.  Go figure, huh?!

4.  I am super indecisive.  I like to get other peoples' opinions on a lot of things.  Sometimes I catch myself and think "duh, you could have figured/decided on that youself!"

5.  I usually over-describe things.  For example, if I am telling a story, I will add in little tidbits that aren't necessarily vital to the story but I feel the need to do it anyways.  See point #1, the part about MSN.

6.  I love watching documentaries.  Not that I would choose a documentary movie over the latest thriller, but I do enjoy turning on Discovery Channel and watching shows about sharks, or space, or mummies; whatever happens to be on.

7.  I am not coordinated in any way, shape or form.  If given the chance, I will most likely trip over a sidewalk crack.  I also have a tendency to stub my toes on anything and everything.  Hence why I have been battling with growing my big toenails normally for the last 3-ish years.  Being uncoordinated also means that I can't play video games that require more than a backward/forward/jump motion (like Super Mario Bros.).  Those toggle things on console game remotes.. yeah, I have a hate-hate relationship with them, and I avoid those kind of games at all costs.  Not that I play a lot of video games anyways - that's what I have polish and blogging for :D  ( <-- proof of point #5)

And there you have it, 7 fun facts about me.  I'm going to go to bed now, and finish this tomorrow by choosing 15 (really?!  15?!?) bloggers to nominate!

  1. Thank you for nominating me!!!

  2. Thank you - post coming soon! I always go over the top with the emoticons for the exact same reason. People are so easily offended - smilies come in really handy :D <<< ;)

    1. It's so easy to take things the wrong way when you are only reading them as opposed to hearing them. I have taken things the wrong way sometimes, and after I feel bad about it. Sometimes even when you are asking an innocent question that you would expect a "yep" from (more friendly sounding) and get a "yes" instead, it makes me think "wow, am I being annoying?" where as "yes :) " would not. I think that's also how a lot of drama starts :)

  3. Thanks so much for the nomination! You know my facts will have to be glittery in nature lol
