1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post. *check*
2. Share 7 things about yourself *check*
3. Pass this Award along to 5 recently discovered blogs and let them know about it! *uncheck* I had this halfway checked until. . . really, Bill Gates. Couldn’t you wait? Note: One of my Versatile Blogger Awards says pass to15 blogs. I think I’ll stick with 5 each, for a total of 15. So I owe 5 more, if can ever find 5 deserving blogs that don’t have it yet.
2. I’m a practicing reader. Art lost out to my love of reading. I got hooked on fantasy/SF at age 9. I give the most credit to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings even if I hid under my bed reading about the ring wraiths riding past the ditch bank. Next credit goes to Asimov’s I Robot . I finally got the school librarian to let me check out adult level books in 5th grade. Score! I’ve been scoring books ever since.
3. I’m an experienced geek. As a child I made “experiences” with mom’s expensive toiletries which led to my BS in Clinical Laboratory Science, specializing in microbiology and computer science with a minor in chemistry. Motherhood was my longest awaited experience and most explosive. Toilets exploded, floods from plugged shower drains, lawn darts in the half-empty swimming pool. 4 boys. Go figure. Even now my experiences are mostly the frustrating kind, like fixing my broken appliances to prove I can. Grr!
It’s tomorrow and I never did find all the same links. The first 7 are the same, 1 lost:
For those winners who already posted facts for another blog award or blog tag, don’t feel obligated to post a whole other batch. Combine like I did, link back, and I’ll be happy!
