Wow! The versatile blogger award! Awesome! First of all, I’d like to thank Jodi Ambrose for presenting me with this award. Check out her blog for some fantastic stories, insight, life tips and rants. Very entertaining to say the least. Check it out! Thanks again!

There’s a great mix of content in the links above, personal stuff, cooking stuff, hilarious stuff. Each of them are blogs that I follow or stop by from time to time, check them out!

Now for seven things about myself…

1. I absolutely love to cook in my spare time, and I never use a recipe. I will look up several recipes and then use only the ingredients I want if it is something I have no idea how to make. My most recent dish was a lovely pork adobo with eggs and potatoes. I served it with white rice and a vegetable stir fry. It was delicious.

2. I am a huge hockey fan. I am a die-hard Toronto Maple Leafs fan but come playoff time I like watching the Los Angeles Kings. I am a season ticket holder for the major junior hockey team in my hometown and never miss a game. Sometimes I stream their away games or listen on the radio!

3. I bought an acoustic guitar a little over a year ago and taught myself to play, basically with you tube. I have recently purchased a fiddle as well, but I can’t play it yet. It sounds like a cat in pain.

4. Speaking of cats, mine is yellow, has an extra digit on each paw that makes him look like a pro boxer and his attitude is awesome.

5. I love movies. I have a collection that includes well over 2000 dvd’s. Included in my top 10 are: The Departed, Armageddon, The Town, Four Brothers, The Big Bounce (remake) and 5 others. My top 10 changes a bit from time to time, but these have been on it since the first time I saw them. Honorable mention goes to Volcano with Tommy Lee Jones.

6. I think board games are awesome. Monopoly, Scrabble, Life, Pictionary, Risk. I also enjoy video games. I know, I’m just a party animal.

7. I enjoy reading and writing. I like to get my books from amazon, used, for as cheap as possible and always in hard cover. I like to collect things and I think hard cover books are much nicer than soft cover. Weird huh?

Alright there you have it! Now check out those blogs I nominated! And once again, a big thanks to Jodi Ambrose. I have to go to work now, maybe I’ll be back later with a related story.

  1. Thanks, DTG! Your kindness is greatly appreciated. I’ll have to do a post similar to this one some time soon. One more thing, the list of recipients gives me a great chance to add to my blogroll. 🙂 I’ll do that when I get a chance.

  2. How would you like to do a guest post? They pay sucks, but the Honor coughbullshitcough is all the reward you’ll ever need!
    I am serious about the guest post. I haven’t had a chance to check out all the Award Winners on your list yet, but I am more than happy to add to the Stable of Dumbasses. I like twindaddy’s stuph, too. 🙂


    • I would be more than happy to do a guest post! The honor would be more than enough compensation.


      • Is there an email I can contact you through so I won’t monopolize the comments? I have an idea that might be fun to implement. If the email address is private, just shoot me a note at realdumbassnews AT gmail DOT com. Just replace the AT and DOT with the appropriate symbol. 🙂

  3. Thanks DGT! Your posts have me cracking up! Keep ’em coming 🙂
