An Award, Some Links and a Few Little Know Facts

Good evening, folks! Not too long ago the upstanding Joe Bloke over at Grantbridge Street & Other Misadventures gave me a Kreativ Blogger Award! How cool is that? Thanks, Joe!

Anyhow, part of the award includes indulging everyone in a few little facts about yours truly and passing it on. The complete rules are as follows:

  • You must thank the person who has given you the award.
  • Copy the award logo and place it on your blog.
  • Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
  • Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
  • Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
  • Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
  • Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.

I have completed the first three, so now I have seven fun/bizarre facts/antidotes about me!!!

1.) Last spring I ran into Bill Paxton (star of one of my favorite shows -- Big Love) at my local greasy spoon. Funny thing is -- the town I currently live in is a rural farm community of only 800 people!

2.) When I was in preschool I was in two commercials; one for JCPenney and the other for the McKids (McDonalds) clothing line. These have yet to surface on YouTube.

3.) Whenever I have taken those career test things in the past, the results always say that I am best suited to Law Enforcement. Police work/museums -- same thing! Ha!

4.) My grandfather, Mart Nodell, was a comic book creator and artist, and his uncle (my great great uncle) -- Dave Apollon is considered to be one of the most influential mandolin players of the 20th century! As fate would have it, I can neither draw nor play the mandolin!

5.) I have actually been stranded on a deserted island -- no joke!!! When I was a kid, I went on a fishing trip on Lake of the Woods in Ontario and the motor on the boat was knocked off by a huge rock. We floated to a nearby island which happened to be deserted. Being at a time before cell phones, the cousin I was with floated to another island and got help -- while I waited in an abandoned house on the other island for hours! What an adventure that was!

6.) These crazy things only happen to me, I swear! While at Comic-Con International: San Diego in 2000, a bird got stuck in my hair!

7.) I cried when I met Micky Dolenz. I vowed never to shed another tear at a state fair again.

There you have it! Seven lil' tidbits about me! And now -- the seven bloggers I nominate for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

Mykal Banta of a whole bunch of really great blogs, including my personal favorite The Big Blog of Kids' Comics!

Retrospace's Gilligan. Outta sight!

John Glenn Taylor over at Easily Mused!

Fellow romance aficionados, KB at Out of This World and the fierce Ms. Spectergirl of As Told to Stan Lee!

Last but certainly not least, Aaron Bias of Silver Age Gold!
