This, That, and the Other

THIS

Last week Zoe Courtman at No Letters on My Keyboard presented me with the One Lovely Blog Award. Zoe's a riot, and I love visiting her blog. You will, too. Go see.


This is another award I'm supposed to pass onto fifteen other bloggers. I'll go you one better than that. It's yours. Free! If you don't have this lovely award, take it as my treat to you for visiting the Tiki Hut.

THAT

Also last week, VR Barkowski tagged me on a handwriting meme. I'm supposed to write all this out. So now if you're a handwriting expert you'll see the real me. Or not.

1. Full Name and Blog Name


2. Right handed, left handed, or both?
3. Favorite letters to write
4. Least favorite letters to write


5. Write "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."


6. Write these words in all caps: CRAB HUMOR KALEIDOSCOPE PAJAMAS GAZILLION


7. Write the lyrics to your favorite song.
Sorry, this one's not happening. My musical tastes are too eclectic for me to choose just one.

8. Tag seven (7) VERY SPECIAL BLOGS with a unique drawing or doodle.
The names are in the doodle. The links are below.


Holly at Scribbles & Splashes
Hannah at Musings of a Palindrome
Kimberly at The Perpetual Writer
Mason at Thoughts in Progress
Helen at Straight From Hel
Laura at A Shift in Dimensions
Conda at Conda's Creative Center

THE OTHER

On Monday, Alex J. Cavanaugh ran a blogfest for favorite TV shows. I didn't sign up. Bad Me. All week I've been picking my favorites from everyone else's and moaning about not joining in. So here are my choices of theirs and some of my own. In no order whatsoever. And with no more about the shows since you've all either seen them or read about them elsewhere by now.

1. Seinfeld
2. Cheers
3. MASH
4. Charlie's Angels
5. X-Files
6. Quantum Leap
7. I Love Lucy
8. Big Bang Theory
9. Criminal Minds
10. Home Improvement

Summer Ross said...

Congrats on the award. You have pretty hand writing, and home improvement was on my list too

KarenG said...

#1 Seinfeld. Good choice!

Hannah Kincade said...

Awww thanks!! I will do my best to get that up before October since it's pretty booked. :D

Helen Ginger said...

I'd forgotten about Quantum Leap! And I Love Lucy was great. Currently, I like the Big Bang Theory, too. I didn't at first, but it's really grown on me.

Thank you for the award. Jimminee, I have to do all those things, plus figure out how to take pictures of it and post them. Wowsers.

Laura Eno said...

Awe, thanks for tagging me!
Do you always write that nicely? O.o
The TV shows have been interesting to read on everyone's blog. I've found a couple of new ones to check out that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.

VR Barkowski said...

Congratz on the award! You do have one lovely blog. And I agree, there is a similarity in our handwriting, except yours is neat and orderly. :)

Joanne said...

I enjoy seeing the handwriting on these memes. Seeing the different styles def puts a different spin on writing, compared to the generic keyboard! And great shows ... I'll cast my vote for Gilmore Girls :)

Mason Canyon said...

Congratulations on your award. You do have a lovely blog. Thanks for passing the handwriting meme onto me. I'm not sure anyone will be able to read my writing. Like your list of shows. I didn't participate either and I should have. I enjoy reading everyone's else list.

Carol Kilgore said...

Clarissa - Thanks.

Summer - Power tools...huff, huff, huff. Still makes me laugh.

Karen - Such great characters.

Hannah - I should plan ahead more.

Helen - Bazinga!

Laura - When I'm in a hurry or thoughts are pushing to get out, my writing gets all slanty and squishy and I sometimes can't read it later. I am my own worst enemy.

VR - See my above comment to Laura re neat and orderly.

Joanne - I've heard about that show but never watched it. Maybe one day.

Carol Kilgore said...

Mason - Thanks. I know how you feel about missing the blogfest. I enjoyed reading everyone else's lists, too.

Maryann Miller said...

Since I am not a handwriting expert, I gained nothing from your samples except an awareness that I could not do this as my handwriting is so bad I no longer use pen and paper to write letters to family.

Congrats on the award.

One of my favorite TV shows is The Closer. Just in case you wanted to know.

Talei said...

Hey Carol, congrats on your award! ;)) Charlies Angels - very cool!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Well done on the awards and I enjoyed your list of TV shows. I'd agree with many but any list of my favourites would include "The West WIng" - especially the first four Sorkin years. Beyond brilliant.

Ann Best said...

Congrats on the award!

I love Seinfeld. I've never seen criminal minds. I love criminology psychology.

And I grew up on I Love Lucy. She's a classic!
Ann

Carol Kilgore said...

Maryann - I'd love to hear everyone's favorites. And I never write letters to family. I either phone, text, or email.

Talei - Thanks. Oh yeah. I once wanted to be a private investigator.

Elspeth - I liked those early West Wing years, too. Then I tuned out. There's a pattern with me on that.

Ann - The new season of Criminal Minds begins tonight at 8pm Eastern on CBS.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I see three of my favorites on your list! Don't worry - I have plans for another blogfest in January.
And you have such neat handwriting...

Stephen Tremp said...

I have your top three on my list. Great minds think alike. And you have nice hand sriting.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

Congratulations on your award.

The writing meme seems like a lot of work and I feel I need to take a handwriting analysis class before commenting!)

I had fun visiting the sites for best TV shows. I didn’t participate because I couldn’t pick only ten. At every site there were one or two shows mentioned, like here with I Love Lucy and Seinfeld, that I’d have to add to my list which I think has about 50 shows on it so far!

Carol Kilgore said...

Alex - I'm an equal opportunity thief. I stole from everyone :)

Stephen - Well, it's not always nice. I was on my best behavior here - LOL.

Jane - I have a handwriting analysis book...somewhere. Maybe I should look myself up.

Conda V. Douglas said...

Carol--thanks for tagging me and what a fun meme!

Carol Kilgore said...

It was fun to do, but it's been freaking me out to scroll down and see my handwriting on the screen.

The Words Crafter said...

Congratulations on you award! I love your handwriting, especially the way you print letters with a tail.

My tv shows will be making an appearance in the next few days....

Hope you have a great Friday and an even better weekend!

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks. I've enjoyed most of the new shows I watched this week.

Holly Ruggiero, Southpaw said...

Ooo, exciting. I'm a little behind but I made it. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Yea! Have fun with it.

kimberlyloomis said...

Congratulations on your awards, Carol! What a fun thing to do, too! Will get to this next week. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Cool. Looking forward to seeing your handwriting.
