The Versatile Blogger Award

I got an award for my blog, yay! Karen gave it to me, thanks! Now I'm supposed to mention the one who gave me the award (done), say seven things you probably didn't know about me, and award five other bloggers.

1. I think that having fancy gadgets you don't truly need is silly, not to mention a waste, and yet, there are some I wouldn't mind having, like iPad, laptop or an iPhone, even though I'm perfectly aware they're way too expensive for what they do.

2. I was quite introvert in high school (I still am), didn't have any real friends there, and believed I was too boring for anyone to gossip about me. Later I found out that there were some rumors about me anyway, such as, that I was a witch, that I had an evil eye and it was a bad idea to mess with me, and that I burned down a house to the ground during summer holidays.

3. When I was a kid, my favorite color for a while was yellow, after I saw a yellow seat in a streetcar and loved that particular bright color.

4. One of the first books I've read, and that was before I started going to the elementary school, was a book about children diseases, a sort of how-to book for parents. I loved that book and re-read it several times.

5. I think of spiders as useful house animals, as long as they stay away from me.

6. While I do enjoy music, I can't listen to music while I write. It's too distracting. I prefer silence.

7. Come to think of it, what I enjoy listening to the most is silence.

That would be it. The five bloggers I'm awarding, because they more than deserve it:

1. One Sister's Rant

2. Beverly Diehl's Writing in Flow

3. Love versus Goliath

4. Lessons from the Monk I Married

5. Anne K. Albert

Congrats on the award. I can't listen to music while I write either. I like the silence.

Anne K. Albert said...

Thank you for the award. I'm surprised and flattered!

Re your list: I can't stand any creatures in my house, especially the creepy-crawly kind, and like you, I prefer to write in complete silence.

Happy writing, Ivana!

Congrats on the award and thanks for sharing more things. What does a versatile kitty look like?

Rena J. Traxel said...

Congrats. I can't listened to music while I write unless I'm writing poetry. But I have no problem writing when the tv is on or if my husband is playing xbox.

Kelly, thanks!

Anne, you're welcome, you deserve a bunch of awards!

Claire, perhaps like this?

Rena, I have no problem writing while my husband is playing games -- then again, he uses headphones. As for the TV, it's almost never on in our home.
