The lovely and somewhat British sarahpotterwrites was very kind to send the Family of Bloggers Award my way. She does in fact, as her name suggests, write, and if i do say so myself, her haikus are far and away better than anything i could say in so few words. Ms. Potter, thank you very much indeed.
It means a lot to be included in the same family as folks from across the pond. Especially the country from where Doctor Who hails.
-To thank the person who nominated you.
-To provide a link to their blog.
-Using an acrostic of the word ‘FAMILY’ tell us the attributes you bring to the family of bloggers.
-Nominate at least 4 other people to join your family of bloggers, and let them know about their nomination.
As for my acrostic, it contains some of my favorite biology vocabulary:
Flagella (amazingly complex whiplike tails on prokaryotes)
Autotrophs (they make their own food! Can anyone say “superpower?”!)
Myosin (without it your muscles don’t move!)
Interferons (help out your immune system like brick walls to germs!)
Leukocytes (white blood cells that eat diseases)
Yocto (10^-24, what a crazy small number)
To “pay it forward,” as it were, I’d like to pass the torch to some cool new followers of the site; hopefully you will check out their work. More hopefully you will hijack their comment pages with a halloween-themed video game. What a great holiday prank. Good luck.
Imagination Muscle-some of the coolest photographs of the micro world of creatures beneath my feet.
J.E. Lattimer-take a short story, scan it in manga style, post it like old-school serials of the 19th century, and you have J.E. Lattimer
Gloria the Poet– the rule of three; I need to put this poet in the third position based on her current front page poem.
Clown on Fire– and by now, the running joke of overloading this poor bozo with awards.
