What’s not an aberration, you ask?
That others really like this site! That’s what! (Pinching self…)
You see, last week, when Wander (bless her heart!) sent me my very first blog award, I was…well…ok, I know you’re probably not going to believe this coming from me…but…I thought it was an aberration of some sort…certainly not worth getting a big head and rearranging my sidebars to make a virtual trophy case over. I mean, I’ve been blogging for several years now, and this is my first award of any kind, so I figured it had to do more with what a nice lady Wander is than anything else. (‘Cuz you know what? She’s NICE.)
I thought to myself, “I’ll hang onto this little jewel, and the next time I’m having a bad day, I’ll blog about this to cheer myself up, cuz you know with these kids of mine and this crazy life, I probably won’t have to wait too long til I need that kind of a boost…”
Then it happened again today! Madame Meow gave me not one, but TWO more awards! I was like…”Holy crap, apparently it’s not an aberration, after all!”
So, give me a minute while I go get my award-receiving-red-carpet-worthy duds on and try to do something with this hair….
Ok, I’m back. (I almost tripped as I so rarely wear heels anymore, but hey – this is an occasion!)
First, I’d like to thank Wander of Wander’s World for this award. I am honored that you love my blog!
Now the rules of this award are as follows:
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the people you’ve nominated.
Ok, will do…in a minute… lol
Second, I’d like to thank Madame Meow of A Daily Dose of Zen Sarcasm for this Brilliante Weblog award. Brilliant Weblog is a prize given to sites and blogs that are smart and brilliant both in their content and their design. The purpose of the prize is to promote as many blogs as possible in the blogsphere.
It, too, comes with similar rules:
1. When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back.
2. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
3. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brilliant Weblog’.
4. And then we pass it on!
And finally, Madame Meow also bestowed upon me this “I Am an Awesome Blogger Friend” award. I must say, the feeling is quite mutual, and since there are no rules prohibiting me from awarding this right back to her, that’s exactly what I shall do. If one can win multiple Oscars, I’m thinking the same holds true for blog awards, right?
And one goes to Wander, too, for being the bearer of my very first award.
Now, before I commence the announcement of winners in for the other two awards, let me make one thing clear: if I give you an award and you elect not to put it visibly in your sidebar or display it prominently on your blog because it doesn’t quite “fit” with your theme, I will NOT be offended. Personally, I’ve decided that since I have 3 all of a sudden, I’m going to create a special page here to house them. That way, you can look in my “trophy case” if you like, but you won’t have it in your face each time you come through my front door.

Ok, ladies and gentlemen, this concludes the awards ceremony (thank GOD – I need to get these damn heels OFF! Yes, I know I’ve been sitting down typing, but still – they’re too much!)
Happy Friday to you all.
Wow thank you Suzanne! Isn’t it fun when you get acknowledged and you didn’t know that was going to happen?
First it’s like the sun peeping through the clouds, and then the joy starts shining everywhere you look.
I think this ole world could use a LOT more of that!!! As soon as I get a spare minute I’ve got to think about more ways to do just that 🙂
Nancy Boyds last blog post..Flower Essences For Lyme Disease
It IS fun! I’m with you – I think we should all step up our random acts of kindness…way up. It’s the fastest, most immediately effective way I know to make the world a better place. 🙂
I never even KNEW I was nominated. 😉
I want to thank Suzanne, my parents, my dog, God and everyone else that made this possible. Thank you. thank-you-very-much
One question though, what is the difference between a blog and weblog? I want to win in the other category too!!!
Christas last blog post..Divine Inspiration slaps me upside my head
Aw, shucks and all that. I’m blushing.
Thank you! What a nice surprise!
Peggasuss last blog post..Not Really an Update
What fun – thanks so much Suzanne!
And BTW you are indeed a deserving award winner – no aberrations there. Hope that trophy case is big, because I’m seeing plenty more in your future.
