“So you think you are a versatile genius”, I was asked during my interview to get into b-school.
“Genius, no. Versatile, I try to be”, I replied.
I got through.
Apparently, I am not the only one who thinks I am versatile. About a month back, Debra gave me this-
Then a couple of weeks later, Amber gave me the same award again.
Last week, Jemi gave me this variant of the same Award-
Yesterday, both Ella and Jan passed on the same Award to me. Even a person as thick headed as me had to take the hint- I could not ignore the Versatile Blogger Award much longer. Though I hoard awards the way Victorian heroines did love letters, it was time to pass this particular Award on.
The Versatile Blogger Award in both its variants comes with its rules-
(a) Thank the person(s) who gave it to you- I adore all five ladies in different ways, and if you havent’ visited their blogs yet, please do.
(b) Share seven things about you– taking a cue from Jan, I am sure I can dig out seven things that will show my versatility
(c) Pass it onto fifteen other versatile bloggers – now this is the difficult part, and the main reason why I have been putting this off. So many of you are so versatile, it is hard for me to pick 15, and only 15. Time to break the rules, me thinks. I am going to pass it on to a single person- the person who, I think, is the most versatile of the lot. She blogs about music, she blogs about summer, she blogs about family, she blogs about friends, she blogs about happiness, she blogs about sadness- and she does it everyday and she does it all in verse.

And since I have been drabbling for the last couple of weeks, here are seven things about me, expressed in exactly 100 words-
I first spoke in public when I was three, and haven’t looked back since
Their fur is loved off, but I still have many of my soft-toys from childhood
I love knitting, but only if the pattern is really complicated
I made it to sports teams in school because what I lacked in skill, I made up for in enthusiasm
I think some of the weeds in my garden are prettier than the plants
I stack books everywhere, but still don’t have enough place to put them
I leant to develop and print my own photographs- photoshop is more fun
Saturday is the day I normally reserve for photographs, so here is one of a flower that bloomed on my birthday.
