Come on Down!

Arby, over at Boarding in Bedlam, just sent me this:

After wondering what I did to deserve it, I composed a possibly humorous and somewhat snarky post about blog awards. But then I thought, "Hey, Arby has sent me numerous readers." So I decided to accept the award in the spirit in which it was given, even if I don't consider myself at all "Stylish". Apparently the rules are that you have to tell seven things about yourself and pass the award on to three other bloggers. I've never been much for following rules, so here goes. To claim your award, just copy and paste it to your blog.

Three things about Me:

1. I'm a former member of Mensa. When I saw what the dues were and how little I got in tangible benefits, I was too smart to renew.
2. I teach Rod and Staff grammar, Saxon Math, and Singapore Math, (All to the same kid. He's pretty smart, too.) and keep up easily with no answer key.
3. I make rocket propellant in my kitchen.
4. I borrowed $250,000 for a degree that turned out to be absolutely worthless.

Seven nominees for the award:

If any man flatters me, I'll flatter him again; tho' he were my best Friend. (Is it Bad Form to send it back?)

You know you want it.

She's stylish.

Father of autistic twins, and he publishes a web comic. Inspirational, and funny to those of us who have been there, or live there.

Four kids...three of whom have autism.. she deserves an award.


I had one more, but it changed to "Invited readers only" and I wasn't invited.

Stylish? Me? Aw shucks! Thanks. You know how I do love flattery. Now I need to figure out who to pass it along to.

I used to hate the awards that absolutely anyone who blogs eventually receives, but in keeping with my wife's reminders to play nice, I accept the fact that people read and enjoy my blog and send me these things because they think kindly of me. And that's nice. Since I do look forward to reading your blog, I thought I'd let you know it. I agree with you on the stylish thing. I ain't stylish. But I'd love to read more about this rocket propellant thing.

Kathleen chose my blog for one of the awards, so I stopped by to see your blog. I love your sense of humor. Now I also have other blogs I have to check out.
