Fun Awards Time Again

Moonraven at  gave me The Versatile Blogger. This is a fun award and thank you Moony, I see your blog is springing forward by leaps and bounds!

The Versatile Blogger award carries 2 conditions; you must pass it on to 3 other bloggers and reveal 7 obscure things about yourself. Well, here goes.

The three bloggers I pass the torch to are:
The Twisted Scottish Bastard

The Sarcastic Test Guy

And bazza at

These are fun, entertaining and yes, versatile blogs! Check them out.

Onto the obscurities.
1. I have Morton's toes. This is where your second toe is longer than your big toe.

2. I can read upside down and backwards. This was handy on NYC subways.

3. I've lived with 13 dogs (including Ems the Wonder Dog for 2 months) and 11 cats (including the Pastel Kitty for 2 months) over my lifetime. And I still prefer them to people.

4. I've never read a romance novel and never will.

5. My pierced ears now reject all earrings, even 24k gold, so I no longer wear them.

6. I don't understand what boredom is or how people get it.

7. I attended seances from the time I was 6 until I was 17, when I was thrown out for laughing.

Boy, the more you do these, the harder it gets to find obscure things about yourself. Okay, TSB, STG and bazza, take it away...

Morton's toes? I have that! But never knew it had a name. Is there a support group?

Anonymous said...

Congrats..... a much deserved award. I've never been bored either.

Geo.- no support group, but support orthotics, which I found unwearable. We have ancient genes, they say, as I think they're called Neanderthal Feet, too.

Lawless! With so much to do/read/think about, who can be bored? I don't get it.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

HA! Yeah, I don't suppose laughing was considered an appropriate response at those seances. Fun facts.

Austan said...

Susan, the looks I got would've killed if any of them had "powers". But I couldn't take it anymore. I'd seen it all. And I was a disrespectful 17 year old. It was really funny, to me...

Hey, I have morton's toes too! I didn't realize there was an actual term for it. We could start our own support group.

I love Laura facts. :)

I hope you do keep coming up with obscurities, because they're fascinating!

I never heard of Morton's toes. Is that the same thing as princess toe (the second toe being longer than the big toe). When I learned about it, I started noticing that almost all the beautiful women have them!

Austan said...

Carrie- We're genetically related! You're a silly girl, and thank you.

Paul- Oh you flirt you! ;) I never heard it called princess toe! I've heard Neanderthal, Greek and Morton's but never princess. That's sweet!
