Two, count 'em TWO, blog awards :)

I have been honored by two different blogs in recent days. First, Ken of Bucko's World nominated me for a Marie Antoinette A Real Person, A Real Award badge.


He wrote
"Dan (a.k.a. Slapinions, can not get much more real than this :o)"
and I thank him kindly.

Next up was Bernadette who nominated me for a Superior Scribbler Award.


She wrote:
3. Slapinions - Have to throw a little testosterone into the mix before flowers and kittens start sprouting up on this entry! Dan is a mid-west father of four who always brings that essential male perspective to child rearing. Always good for a laugh and he regularly posts book and movie reviews. I can't write about him without mentioning our common bonds over football, I even like the guy so much I cut him slack for being a Pack fan ;) Dan is also an excellent writer, the kind that can actually get paid for it.

Three things about Bernie: one, for some reason her blog won't let me even advance to the 'leave a comment' section (AOL problem?), so excuse the lack of a 'thank you' there. Two, 'quarterlifecrysis' was one of the more imaginative blog titles out there and I miss it (or am I remembering wrong?). And three she left a hell of a well-written comment here earlier this week on the evolution post.

Now I'm going to BLATANTLY CHEAT and not pay the awards forward. I'm supposed to gather together a list of blogs I feel are worthy of the honor and list them here, BUT:

1. I'm as good with memes as I am with portion control.

2. I'm more of a lurker than a commenter, so these things always look like I'm attempting damage control for 'not visiting'.

3. Someone always gets p.o'd at their exclusion

4. No other blog is as good as mine, so really, it'd just be watering down the value of the award. I kid, I kid.

I say this: take a look at the blogs I have listed on the sidebar, both the ones I inputted and the list of 'followers'. You'll find plenty of worthy writing there. Feel free to skip me and get the ball rolling yourself.

And Ken/Bernie - if this offends you then give me a holler and I'll pull the awards. The honor, as they say, was simply in the nomination :)

No offense here, I contemplated letting Beth nominate me as well, but relented. I figured that since this was a new community, It would not hurt to get the word out.

By the way, love the tree climbing entry. Part of my philosophy is "never grow up" :o)

Bernadette said...

aw..thanks for the compliment :)

...and you will pay for not forwarding those awards. You won't know when it's coming but... ;)~ *I jest*

quarter life crisis is my screen name on AOL...quartrlyfecrysis.

..it's stolen from a John Mayer song. The lyrics go, "it might be a quarter life crisis, or just a stirring in my soul, who knows."

gonna go see if I can figure out how to use that music player now.
