Many thanks to the lovely Lynn Priestley of Zenquill for passing on The Versatile Blogger Award to me. And thanks to all who find the time to drop by. I’m being good for once and trying to follow…

The Rules:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award:

2. Share seven things about yourself:

3. Pass this award along to bloggers you have discovered who you think are fantastic for whatever reason:

4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award:

Seven Things About Me:

1. I am disgusting: I let the dog sleep on my husband’s side of the bed when he’s not there.

2. I am secretive: I try to keep this lapse in standards from my husband.

3. I am competitive: my step-daughter says I am the most embarrassing mother in the world, even more embarrassing than her mum, and this has become a source of some pride for me.

4. I am grateful: I have had two novels published and hope to leverage this into a career that will see me into my dotage.

5. I scare easily: My kids boo me for fun.

6. I have regrets: I once threw a bucket of coke over the lady in front of me during a scary scene at the movies.

7. I am shameless: When she turned round to complain, I shushed her and pointed to the screen, just to let her know that some people were trying to watch a movie you know…

    Always a pleasure to see you on the interwebs, Lynn. 🙂

  3. Joanna Gaudry says:

    Ha, ha. Love the Coke scenario, Chris. You’re a comedian too!

  4. chrisbongers says:

    The girlfriend who was with me is still laughing about it, twenty years on, Joanna. Not the poor lady in the front seat, however…

    • Sue T says:

      Indeed she is laughing – also cringing at how you told her to shoosh when she had the audacity to complain loudly about having coke spilled all over her. At least it was more entertaining than the movie – DIE HARD 2 – or was it 3 or 4 …

  5. chrisbongers says:

    2, I think, and I do recall that I loved it, and you thought it was an ‘unspeakable piece of shit.’ You being such a Passage to India kinda girl and all. xx

  6. Karen Brooks says:

    Chris!!! You are too funny! I love this blog and think you deserve to have awards and honours dripping from your shelves – and not just for your beautiful (and funny) writing but for being a totally fab person! xxxx

  7. chrisbongers says:

    Karen, now you’re being too kind. 🙂 Love your blog too (as you can tell from the above), though the Official Karen Brooks Facebook site is taking a lot to beat these days! 🙂
