I Got An Award!

Today I was given my first award from Annette at Fairy Blog Mother. She's a wise, guy, see, but she's a pretty cool wise guy. We made fast friends. At one point I was afraid the love affair was over. We came *this* close to coming to virtual blows over which one of us was going to win a super-fancy GelPro mat. In the end I didn't win and she better not have I think she didn't either. So we're still friends. That's why she gave me this award. Either that, or she only knows seven other people. Either way I'm glad to have it and if I saw her in person I'd give her a great big noogie hug. And maybe some of my good chocolate. As long as she smelled pretty good I would probably let her pet my puppy. Or make a call on my shiny new iPhone. And I would probably program her number into it, too. WITH a picture of her. (see how I snuck that reference to my shiny new iPhone?) She's the bees knees, and I told her so just today.

The Let's be Friends Awards stands for this:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.

I have instructions to deliver this award to eight other bloggers. It's going to be difficult to choose because there are a whole bunch of friendly, interesting, intelligent, fun people out there. The eight of you have to pass it on or your eyeballs will fall out, so don't mess around, okay?

Here goes a list. If I left you off it's not because I don't adore you, it's because... I don't know why I would do such a thing. You should totally confront me about it. But please don't, because it was very difficult to decide. I admit there may be someone on the list who isn't exactly my friend yet. But if she knew me she would be. Plus I just really dig her blog and have read ALL of it.

  1. Is it me? Am I the not-friend-friend? I am so honored that you picked me as one of your eight. It makes me happy that someone enjoys my rambling. I have been ridiculously bad at blogging and commenting lately because my 7 month old daughter decided she will only sleep if one of my hands is touching her at all times. Rest assured that when this crisis is over, I will be back to my chit-chatting friendly self. I know there are so many people I would enjoy in the blog world if I only had the time to read them all... I will start with the other seven you picked. :) <--- (that's a real smile, not just tagged on for effect)

  2. Now everyone will assume they are the not-friend-friend. I chose friendly people with blogs I love. You have been friendly. I love your blog.

  3. Oh, no. I like my eyeballs.

    Thank you so much for this!!

  4. Congrats!! you totally deserve it. :)
