Some awards

Wow!  These are long overdue.  Back in July I was nominated for two awards but, as I was on vacation at the time I put them on ice and kinda forgot about them.  Time to rectify that.

The Parasite Guy nominated me for the Liebster Award – my second one.  I’ve noticed the same awards circulate with different sets of rules.  I wonder why that is.  A game of telephone gone awry?  Nevertheless, this time around the rules are as follow: Continue reading “Some awards”

On turning 100

This marks my 100th post on If all else fails…use a hammer (not counting reblogs – if I didn’t write them, they don’t count).  I also considered not counting posts I imported from my first blog on Blogger, but that meant I’d have to do some math and I really didn’t feel like that.  For the same reason I decided to count asides as posts even though they technically…aren’t.

Tag! You’re it!

I remember playing tag.  You had to run around and avoid one person touching you.  If he touched you, you had to chase the others.  If you touched a certain object you couldn’t be tagged.  We called it “Touchers”.

I reckon my last game of tag was around twenty years ago.  That is, until today.  Thanks, Nerd Enchanted, for helping me rediscover my youth.

Tag rules:
1. Post a picture of yourself with 11 facts
2. Answer the questions posted by the tagger
3. Create 11 new random questions
4. Tag people!

You are my sunshine…

…my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey.  You’ll never know dear, how much I love you.  Please don’t take my sunshine away.

Why am I starting today with a song?  Because I have once again received an award.  The Sunshine Award, to be precise.  Thanks to Jayde-Ashe over at The Paperbook Blog for the nomination.  Go give her a visit, why don’t you?
