ABC Award

ABC Award – from Channel Comfort

Channel Comfort is one of the kindest blogs I know, sound odd? It isn’t really this is a place of peace and restful contemplation. She practices both Reiki and yoga the balance she achieves shines through in her blog (one of these days, I will ask outright how to get there from here).

I encourage you to check her blog out she is inspiring.

A. Ambivalent

B. Balanced

C. Colorful (so I have been told, suspect it might be my language)

D. Determined

E. Enlightened

F. Free-thinking

G. Generous (sometimes to a fault)

H. Hellion (my late father(s) description of me)

I. Irreverent

J. Just

K. Kind (most of the time)

L. Learner (this is my favorite occupation)

M. Measured

N. Nuanced

O. Obstinate (only sometimes, only about some things)

P. Pragmatic

Q. Quirky (about some things)

R. Rational

S. Seeker (constantly and till the day I lay down for the last time)

T. Tolerant (perhaps more than I should be)

U. Unwavering (in my principles and beliefs, which doesn’t mean you can’t have your own, thus T)

V. Vulnerable

W. Wayfaring (given my job what else could I be)

X. Xerophobous (why I still miss S Tejas)

Y. Youthful (very unimaginative I know, but truth nonetheless)

Z. Zaftig (hey it is a better word than Fat, which was what F originally was)

I know, I know….I am supposed to pass this on; but this is a real PITA (figure the acronym out please). I will not pass it on, but offer any and all who read this a challenge instead, if you want to sit down and try to describe yourself using the alphabet please do so, it is an interesting exercise. It took me two days to complete and I finally had to resort to the my favorite Scrabble Word Book for two of the letters, can you guess which ones?


  1. Congratulations on your ABC Award!
    As the originator of this award you may be interested to know that I have now set up a Facebook group for all bloggers who have been given the ABC Award – a place for you to meet new bloggers, and share and support each other. You can join the group here:
    Please also let any other bloggers, that you know have been given the award, know about this group too – then we can all ‘spread the word’
    I have also set up a Facebook page – the ABC Award – where you can now add links to all of your blog posts and writing – share your work with a new audience, gain new readers, and find out what other ABC Award bloggers are writing about.
    You can find the page here:
    Just ‘like’ the page and get started – and do let all your blog readers know about this page – I believe that all of our blogs can only be improved by letting our readers know about other blogs – that way you will also have new readers discover you too!
    Happy blogging – and congratulations again on the ABC Award – you’re awesome!

  2. X and Z words. You so impress me right now.

  3. I love them all…well, except ambivalent. We may have to discuss that one at length, although I already suspect I know the whys and wherefores to it. Love this one. A. Lot.

  4. Congratulations for THREE actions:
    1. for winning the ABC award (two thumbs UP)
    2. for alphabetically describing yourself (ingenious)
    3. for not passing it on the usual way (bonus)

    • I couldn’t bring myself to do that to people I like. I considered finding people I am not so passionate about, then I thought….no that would just send the wrong message. 🙂

      Did you guess the letters?

  5. Well done! These awards ARE a mixed blessing, aren’t they! And I’m Zaftig, too! I will stump EVERYONE with that one.

    • I love that word, don’t you?

      They are indeed. I have ignored a few of them in the past simply because I had neither the energy nor the time. Add to this, I don’t really like answering questions, especially personal ones. I will tell what I want when I want, more is an invasion.

      Now back to finishing the entry I have been struggling with.


  1. […] Val had a good time with the award she got Channel Comfort. When I got a similar one from Mystery Coach, there was much head scratching and speculation about my ability to coin words to suit the occasion. If you want to check my work and be sure I am not cheating by repeating answers, feel free. Now, it is my turn to reveal myself alphabetically. This time, I am going to use nouns and verbs for a twist. […]
