Sarah over at Sunlight After Rain has graciously (and wonderfully!) passed on another blogger award to me! I'm pretty sure she's my biggest blogger fan (mom and Aunt Heide don't count), which is pretty awesome 'cuz we've never actually met IRL.
The internet rocks.
I'm pretty sure versatile is another word for random.

As per rules of the award, you're supposed to tell some facts about yourself. I tried to come up with some
random versatile facts about me, so enjoy:
I recently found my high school Spanish teacher on Facebook because a song came on the radio that reminded me of him. He had us learn Barenaked Ladies' "If I Had a Million Dollars" in Spanish and sing it in class. We also once made mini-movies as a final project. Reid, Jeff, and I did a version Shrek with Reid as Shrek, me as Princess Fiona, and Jeff as the king of Duloc (what was his name?). It rocked, and I wish I had a copy of it. I'm pretty sure I did at one point...
I hated the idea of Twitter until my good friend Jordan signed me up for one out of the goodness of his heart. He recently reminded me of this, and I am very grateful for the love he sent my way. 'Cuz Twitter's fun. (Total sidenote, welcome to Twitter, mom!)
My brother is currently playing in a tournament at the World Series of Poker. He's kind of a badass, in more ways than one. Here's some websites with info from small bid tournaments in years' past, but I can't find any 2011 stuff. Still, super cool.
My favorite part about living in Texas is the cowboy boots Nick got me. Hands down. Oh, and spending time at the Future Doctor Martindale's pool.
I'm totally proud of my awesome yearly Christmas letters that I send to my family and friends. 2008 was a menu, 2009 was a multiple-choice quiz, and 2010 was a psych eval. I'm currently accepting witty ideas for a 2011 letter. (My good friend Shayla's boyfriend was baffled that somebody would send a Christmas letter about themselves. Maybe this year, I'll send a letter with updates on all my friends, then plug my blog if family or friends want to know about me.)
And that's me, versatile Sar. In accordance with blog award tradition, I'm passing this award along to the following two people for the following reasons:
Jordan at Trailer Gypsy writes about tattoos, PTSD, tips about jewelry, and everything in between. She also has a plethora of amazing recipes, and is living in Oregon/Idaho so she rocks.
E at Evergreen Eden is my newest favorite blogger, writing about life and her dreamy "man dime" husband, all while including beautiful poetry and creative writing prompts. She's all over the place, in a great way!
(I should have included Dwija from House Unseen in this list because she is the most hilarious blogger alive even while talking about dog poop or kidnapping a pig. She's received this award before and probably will continue to receive it from all her readers, but she still deserves a shout-out 'cuz she's wonderful.)
I hope you're able to do a little blog hopping over to Jordan's, E's, and Dwija's blogs because they're all wonderful people and fun bloggers! Thanks for the award, Sarah!
