The Versatile Blogger Award!

Award number 2!

Award number 2!

Not so long after receiving a Liebster Award nomination (you can read the acceptance piece for that here) I’m honoured and (damn lucky) to have received another award nomination courtesy of V over at top blog The Verbal Spew Review.

I humbly accept and once again would like to extend my thanks to V who had kindly also nominated GBUK for the LiebsterThe Verbal Spew Review is a fun, thought provoking and all-round good read presented with its own unique voice and style.  V is also very welcoming and supportive of fellow bloggers and will always take the time to respond to your comments and check out your very own blogs.  If you haven’t come across The Verbal Spew Review yet I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I’m still amazed that there are people out there reading and even enjoying my stuff (if this is your visit then a massive hello to you and thanks for stopping by!).  Admittedly I’ve been rather busy of late with a new job which has left me with less time and little attention for the blogsphere.  If I haven’t stopped by your blogs in a while please accept my apologies, it’s going to take me a little bit of time to catch up (I also need to log in to the Twitter account which I’ve been neglecting) and don’t worry I’m still aiming to produce at least one GBUK post every weekend so stick with me!

Anyway, I shall press on with this acceptance.  Firstly, the blogs I would like to nominate for the VBA (the rules of which can be viewed here):

I would like to stress that acceptance is purely at the discretion of the authors of those fantastic blogs and I won’t be offended if they don’t wish to participate (likewise if they do, I look forward to reading the responses) – it’s entirely up to you!

Now, on to the seven factoids.  As I’m not really all that interesting and wanting to maintain some relevance with this here geeky blog of mine you’ll find that they’re mainly statements of geekery (and perhaps they might invite debate?) with the odd personal fact thrown in for good measure – I am versatile after all:

  1. I was born in Prescot but have lived in Liverpool for the majority of my life (thus far).
  2. My favourite Star Trek series is the original.  Oh yes.
  3. I love Christmas but honestly loathe New Year.
  4. I have soft spots for Bond film Moonraker, the 1995 Sylvester Stallone Judge Dredd and the 1978 Battlestar Galactica: The Movie.
  5. I look approximately ten years younger than my actual age (my new co-workers are astonished).
  6. I’m still annoyed that Stargate Universe was cancelled.
  7. I prefer American Dad! to Family Guy.

 Well, that’s all for now – until next time, stay safe and keep watching the skies!
