versatile... whatcha call me?!?!

adaptable, all-around, universal, multipurpose, well-rounded, able, ace, adept, experienced, expert, masterful, skilled, skillful; adjustable, alterable, changeable, elastic, flexible, fluid, malleable, modifiable, variable


i want to thank sister kayc for awarding me... she is a truly beautiful and gifted woman - versatility personified. over at thoughts from the quietstorm you will find the writings of a straightforward, to-the-point woman whose got roots, she shares her stories with honesty and with such strength... i especially enjoy her random thunderstorms and storm breakers...

as a recipient of the versatile blogger award, i must provide seven random facts about myself...


1. i have an eye for error... which is a good and a bad thing... it is good for my work because i spend most of my day troubleshooting resources and i need to identify problems quickly and accurately.  i see when words are misspelled or when something, an object, is out of place i spot it right-away but it can also be a bad thing because i also see when behaviors change... you know... inconsistencies...

2. i've been called a proverbs 31 woman... and while i take it as a compliment... that woman does not sleep!  truth is, sometimes neither do i.  the proverbs 31 woman is a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur, she's a giver and while a couple of her qualities i do not possess, i don't allow idleness to settle within me... well i can't really because there's always work to do!

3. i do hair... therefore i'm a... hair-doer... not quite a stylist, in fact i wouldn't even label myself but i love hair and i love braiding it, twisting it, playing in it.  i have been known to apply relaxers, cut hair into styles, barber, twist locs - however i prefer to do hair that is coarser to the touch.

4. i am a closet, amateur, seamstress... there is very little that i buy, as far as clothing goes, that i like off the rack, so i alter it.  i say amateur because i don't like to sew and i don't own a sewing machine (yet!) so i cut, pin and then take my creations to my tailor.  a sewing machine is on the way though because i can save a whole lotta money doing the alterations myself...

5. i would love to learn how to make wine... i remember one christmas my auntie p made some peach wine. me and my cousins sat around and drank that wine until we were sloppy drunk.  i'm confident that a wine business could be in my future... should i choose to pursue one.

6. in addition to being a librarian, a church secretary, and an all-round versatile woman, i would like to pursue full-service spa ownership.  spinderella from the rap group salt-n-pepa used to own a spa called "she things", it was awesome.  my favorite spas to date are dorit baxter in nyc and serenity aveda salon in ft. lauderdale, florida but the one i will pattern mine after is cynergy. there used to be harlem location and i enjoyed their ambiance and that inspired me.

7. in the dorit baxter spa they have these adorable self-help books by handbag honeys and i would like to have these types of books in my spa.  since the handbag honeys don't seem to be in print anymore... perhaps these cute little treasures are still in demand and not only could i be the spa owner but also the author of the newer, up-to-date and ummm ethnic-influenced... titles...

now I must award another fifteen bloggers... the future recipients are to thank and link back to the one who gave you the award, share seven facts about yourself, and then nominate fifteen others who you think are versatile.  i know that i know more than fifteen who are versatile, however i shall award...

luv...
