Versatility, I Has It

Well, hello all you new neighbors! Thanks ever so much for stopping over here, because it means a lot to me. This weekend is the Halloween Bloghop, going on over at Jeremy Bates' blog, and I've noticed that a lot of the traffic has been due to that. Thanks peeps! You all seem like lovely people and I'm sure this is the start of some wonderful blurking.

Anywho, one of my newest neighbors has so graciously awarded Over Yonder with The Versatile Blogger award thingy, and I have to say, I'm honored. Part of the requisite actions I must take for this award is to list seven facts about myself--of the random variety--and also pass the award on to some newly discovered bloggers who fit the bill as well.

Spectacular! I just love lists, and the more random, the better!

1. I'm currently working on crocheting hats for everyone I know for their Christmas gifts. Please don't tell them.
2. I bought 22 inches worth of books today and it only cost me $11. Tune in on Monday to find out how.
3. I eat artichokes on my pizza.
4. I can't ride in a car unless I'm driving or I'll get carsick.
5. I held a baby today and she pooped on me. Actually, she didn't poop ON me, she just pooped while I was holding her. In her diaper. Which is where she is supposed to poop. Moving on.
6. I've had contacts since sixth grade, and when I'm not wearing them, I like to pretend I'm in a Monet painting.
7. I LOVE John Wayne.

Now for the blogs. This is always the hardest part, because I feel like I'm not being fair to all the blogs that I don't link to. Y'all will forgive me, won't you? If I don't link to you? I hope so. Because in truth I wish I could give everyone an award. It isn't fair. Darn, now I'm pouting.

Chrissy Peebles over at The Purple Brick Road.
Abby Fowers over at Something To Write About.
Donnelle Lacy over at a Little Dversion.
Anita Grace Howard over at A Still and Quiet Madness.
Mike Winchell over at Beanstalks & Bookends.
Janette Currie over at BookRambler.
Jaime Morrow over at Jaime.

Alright, the linking and mentioning and listing is done, so go clickety-click on things. I know how much fun that is. Besides, these people are really cool! I fully plan on congratulating them and announcing the fact that I've given them an award tomorrow. Okay, it's already tomorrow, but I'm gonna wait until later today, when you know, it's sunny and people are awake. Actually, I should really go to bed. I have stuff to do in eight hours or so.

Until next time...stay bloggy!


  1. Congrats on the award Bailey! I had to hop over to see what you were up too! The weather has been so beautiful, that I too broke out all my knitting needles in hopes to get some scarves and hats done :)
    Many Blessings~

  2. Congrats, Bailey! And thank you for passing the award on to me :)

  3. Congrats, Bailey!

    Thank you so much!!!!!!! I have this big, giant, happy smile I just can't seem to wipe off! : ) You have made my day!!! I'm so thrilled that I got a chance to meet you and that I can follow your blog now. Have a fantastic Halloween weekend!

  4. @Michelle: I know! The weather is perfect for sitting inside and making warms things out of yarn!

    @Jaime: Thank you and congrats to yourself! I'm so glad you stopped by! I'm going to look forward to your list of seven random facts!

  5. @Chrissy: Aww, thanks! It's so much fun meeting new people and giving them things! I'm so happy that you love the award! It makes my day to know that I've made your day!

    And John Wayne is my hero. :D Haha!

  6. Haha. Baily, I always <3 your posts but don't comment nearly enough. Your voice just sparkles and satisfies like a glass of lemonade. :)

    And "blurking"?? Why have I never heard this It ROX!!

    And artichokes are good on anything ... except maybe pancakes.

    Hats off to the Duke, and gracias fair lady for the awesome award!

    Congrats to you for winning it in the first place, and to the other nominees today, too!

  7. Congrats, Bailey! Yeah, babies poop. They vomit too. At least a diaper takes care of one end. You're on your own with the other. Trust me. I know. :)

  8. @Anita: Thank you dear lady! Blurking is something that just fell into my head one day. I mean, why not combine blogging and lurking into one word? We already do it in practice! :D

    @Colin: Thanks! The baby is super cute; I had so much fun making faces with her. I think I may have won the face contest, but then again, her faces were so adorable and she does have that "baby factor" to take into account...

  9. OMG Bailey, we have so much in common! Love your facts. And THANK YOU - THANK YOU for the award! You are so awesome! I can't wait to check out the other blogs you mentioned as well.

  10. Congratulations, Bailey! You deserve it! Thanks for spreading the love!

    I loved your random facts. You can look forward to mine soon! It'll be great finding bloggers to pass this award on to! (and I won't tell anyone about the hats)

  11. I love the random facts. Good thing the baby pooped where she was supposed to...

    Congrats, also, on your versatility!~

    I’m here visiting from Jeremy Bates' blog hop, and I love your blog!

    My favorite scary book is IT (scared the crap out of me as a kid), movie that horrified me most was Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween, and I did not dress up this year, because I suck. One of my favorite costumes in the past was "Dead Baby Roller Blades."

    Happy Halloween!

  12. hi Bailey,
    Thanks for the Versatility Award shout out; thrilled you found BookRambler & liked it too! I'll post some random things soon & pass it on - great idea.
