An Update, An Award (Really just an award, but whatever)

My bloggy buddy Heinous pulled this award out of a magic hat for me. It was either to make me feel better and Stop Moping Already, or else it was one of those cruel teenaged jokes where the most popular boy in school asks you to prom, and you say yes and get all excited only to have him drive by your house with his friends and laugh at you on the night itself, while you're left to spend the evening weeping in your gown. Or so you think until it turns out that the boy you're really meant to be with shows up and takes you and you fall in love and kiss under the stars. What? It's not like I spend my evenings drinking wine, watching chick flicks and tearing up at the happy ending...I swear....Shut up.
Anyways, the award goes like this:

“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must may choose eightish more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

This is all kinds of flattering, because no one ever thinks of me as kind, let alone as disinterested in self-aggrandizement. Between you and me, self-aggrandizement doesn't sound half so bad. I'm counting on the subtle language edits, first of Heinous himself, and then of my own, because if you think about it too much, or learn how to count, you might realize that I can't. Eight's just such an awfully lot of people to remember to tell, and my brain doesn't work if it's not handed multiples of five.

  1. Danke Shein Mein Bitte

    I shall cherish it, love it. Maybe lick it once in awhile.

    No, I will have you know I have not been drunking. Not at awl.

  2. Imagine my surprise, after nearly two days of not being able to sit at my computer due to a stomach flu, that I was the recipient of this award! It was pleasant, I can assure you. And I am flattered.

  3. Nope, I just gave it to you because you deserve it. It looks good on you.

    I'm off to read your nominees. If you read them, they must be pretty good.

  4. I'm going to print it up, and keep it with me always. Because it's special.
