In high school, I was so far below the radar screen of my peers that I wouldn’t even qualify to get the “Most Likely to be Overlooked Award.”
So it tickles me to no end to be recognized now, when it is so much more meaningful. For who I am rather than what I look like or how I flirt or how much I drink at after-game parties.
Recently, Waiting Amy gave me the “You Make My Day” Award. Yoka presented me with the”Kind Blogger Award” (it takes a lot to tame the snark). And last week, Pamela Jeanne passed on to me “The Pink Rose” Award.
I am grateful to Amy, who makes MY day. Almost so much that I’d volunteer to help her move. (But to be honest, that much zest for moving doesn’t actually exist.)
I had the pleasure of meeting Yoka during a trip east last winter. If you have read any of her posts, you know that she embodies the Kind Blogger Award. Yoka and her husband are currently matched with an expectant mother, and are eagerly awaiting parenthood.
And can I say once again how excited I am to get to meet Pamela Jeanne in July at the BlogHer panel she got me on? Talk about a pink rose — in return I award PJ an entire greenhouse.
Is it illegal to pass these awards on to an entire group? Will the bloggy police come to arrest me if I simply say, “If you’re on my blogroll, I’m passing these awards on to you”?
The reasons for this mass awarding are: I like you, I like your story, and I like your writing.
Please take a gander at my Google Reader widget (“Keeping up with the Joneses”), on my lower right sidebar. Look for someone new to investigate and click on over. If you don’t see yourself (it lists only the 25 most recent posters) and think you should be on my blogroll, drop me an email (bestlightlori at the gmail place).
But be forewarned. If you get drunk after each football game and flirt whorishly for comments, I may not add you. But then again, that fodder may be just too good to pass up, so I may. Ya just don’t know unless you ask.
Now, go forth and award.
