Versatile Blogger Award – Acceptance/Nominations

Versatile BloggerGreetings, Readers!

I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by one of my favourite bloggers on WordPress, Mark Bialczak.

If you don’t do anything else today, I suggest you check out his, always entertaining, blog:

Here is a link to the rules of this award:

Next, I must nominate 15 bloggers/blogs for this award. These are blogs that I enjoy reading and I hope you take a bit of time to click on each one and see what they are about. I promise you, you’ll like them. Now, without any further adieu, the nominees are….

Lastly, I must list seven things about myself. This shouldn’t be too hard, right? Wrong. I’ll probably be struggling by #3.

1. I am from Canada and have never travelled outside of Canada. And no, we don’t say “eh” as much as you think we do. I think I might write a blog about “eh” sometime.

2. I love sports. All sports. If you like talking about sports, let me know!

3. Well, we’re at #3 and I’m struggling. I will be attending the 2014 NHL Winter Classic in Detroit on January 1st. Look for some blog posts about it around then! Shameless plug.

4. I do not like onion rings. I think they taste terrible. I was once given onion rings, instead of fries, at a restaurant because they had run out of fries. The onion rings ruined my meal. Terrible before, during, and after taste.

5. I’ve never broken a bone. Must be all that milk I drink. The worst thing to happen to me has been a torn ligament in my finger caused by a basketball in gym class. I’ll never forget going to the hospital and sitting in the waiting room…waiting. It was during the SARS outbreak. I had to wear a gown and face mask, while I stared at a picture frame that said “Saskatoon”, for 3 hours. I always recall that moment whenever I see the word “Saskatoon.”

6. I worked at a summer camp for two years. I never had a problem falling asleep right after dinner. Children are tiresome and gullible. I ruined their knock knock jokes. They’d say “knock knock”. I’d reply with “come in”. Bam. Joke ruined! I’ve never seen a five-year-old so rattled in my life. You should try it sometime!

7. Apparently I eat burgers and sandwiches upside down. Apparently this is “wrong”. “Apparently” most people pick up the burger/sandwich and bring it straight to their mouth. I don’t. My natural motion forces me to flip the burger/sandwich, so that the top bun is facing down when it enters my mouth. If there is anyone else out there who does this, let me know and we can raise an eyebrow at everyone else!

Well, that’s it. Again, I’d like to thank Mark for this award. I shall clear a spot on my shelf for this trophy.

Oh, there is no physical trophy? I’ll still clear space, anyways.

Thanks for reading!

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.

    Well Don, Paul. No. 7 proves that you are truly a culinary renegade. No. 5 reminds me of this university gym class tale for me. We were playing volleyball, and I jumped at the net to attempt to block a spike. I am not a feared jumper. The spike sailed untouched past my arms and hit me squarely in the nose. Down I fell on my back. As I looked up at the ceiling, the teacher walked up to me and told me good point. Huh? He informed me that the volleyball had bounced off my nose, over the net, never to be returned. My nose only bled a little. Whenever I fall to my back and look up to the ceiling, I think of this. As I am somewhat less than graceful, still, this happens more than you might think. Have a good day, eh?

      Wow! That was always my biggest fear with volleyball. Even when I played it in University as an intramural sport. I’d jump up for the block and always turn my head, just a bit, because I knew that there was aways a chance for the ball to come right down the middle and clock me in the nose. Never happened, but it was thought about. Which reminds me, I’ve never had a nose bleed before. Thanks for the comment and award, eh!


  2. AHHH!! OMG! You listed me!! I DOUBLE HEART YOU! AHH! Really you like my junk? Hey hey! You live in Toronto, lets go to Commisso’s 🙂 But seriously! You made my freaking night! I haven’t logged in for a bit so I haven’t gotten a chance to stalk your stuff. I’ll do that now!


  3. Ahhh thank you Paul!!! I love getting the Versatile Blogger award (it’s my 4th time!) But I’m especially glad YOU chose me because I’m your biggest fan and read your blog the most!! Congratulations 🙂

      Thanks for saying that! Glad you like what I write and are leading the charge when it comes to my fan club haha. I enjoy reading your blog. It’s just very real and we both chose a song from the same band.
