What’s In A Name?

I realize I can be a bit scattered, but Sonia at Story Treasury has given this a positive spin by nominating me for a Versatile Blogger award. I am no longer forgetful, distracted or unorganized. I am versatile. Thanks, Sonia. 😀
The reward does not come without conditions, however. The first condition is that I must tell you seven random things about myself:

  1. I am a pinball maniac. I don’t just like them, I go crazy when I play, screaming and causing tilts. (Yes, I like the old-fashioned variety best.) Friends who observe this for the first time, say I become another person. Multiple personality disorder?
  2. I just love to write computer algorithms. I love all things computer, but nothing beats writing an algorithm for entertainment value. Yes, I proudly acknowledge my geekiness.
  3. I hate new nightwear. It never feels as soft and comfortable as my old nightshirts. Some favorites have lasted almost twenty years.
  4. I am addicted to popcorn. It’s a rare day when I don’t have some.
  5. I love to go to the movies. Mobility problems make that an infrequent occurence for me now, but I used to go to several movies each week and might attend two or more on a Saturday or Sunday.
  6. Petunias are my favorite flowers, followed closely by geraniums.
  7. I love to do jigsaw puzzles. In recent years, I’ve switched to the virtual variety. Gone are the days of missing pieces and drive-by kitty scatters.

The second condition is to nominate five more bloggers for this award. I’m never sure what to do with this one. Some folks like getting these awards, some don’t. Some have already received the award. Someone may feel left out, if I don’t nominate them. Here’s the plan. Leave a comment indicating that you’d like the award. Nominations will go to the first five bloggers to do so. I’ll update the post with your name and a link to your site.

Don’t worry if you’d just like to leave a comment. I won’t nominate anyone unless they’ve indicated their interest.

    So I had to go look up the word algorithms and I’m still cornfused.

    I can’t believe you eat popcorn everyday. I can do it maybe once a week but that is all. I do love it tho.

  2. Kay Davies Says:

    I’m also confused about algorithms, a word I have never understood no matter how many times I look it up. I’m also confused about virtual jigsaw puzzles. Aren’t kitty-scatters part of the fun? LOL
    I do, however, admire anyone whose digestive system can handle daily feedings of popcorn. You rock, Grandma.

    Well, we are alike on 1,2,3,5,7. Except we watch movies at home, and I have several computer pinball games I like.

    I’ve already had that award, thanks!
