Awards season isn’t over it seems…

Posted: March 5, 2008 in Uncategorized

From Ian, I got this yesterday (damn, I’m sounding like a Montreal Italian here).

It’s an honour to be chosen by him, one of my favourite bloggers ever. At the same time I have to wonder a bit about his sanity after his long month of report writing (I can relate Ian, I really can), because considering me a mentor in any way shape or form seems quite, well insane really.

Nevertheless, one grabs one’s kudos where one can, so I’ll grab this one and hug it tightly to my little black heart.

Now, five people to award this to. I’ve always found it funny how these things always go to five people or more. If you look at it exponentially, each of these awards should make it to everyone in the blogosphere within a few months. Which pretty much detracts from the exclusivity. But exclusivity isn’t the idea, discovering new blogs is, and that, my friends is the bane of my existence. I hate awards because I feel obliged to check out the blogs people give awards to and damned if I don’t get sucked in by at least a couple. I need to become independantly wealthy in order to read blogs full time.

But I digress.

And you all know most people I’m going to give this to, so I’m being nice by not forcing you to check out new blogs. I’m good that way, so….

Big Brother – I guess this first one is not so much a blogging mentor award (’cause after all, I got him blogging) as simply a mentoring award. BB has made me what I am today. He taught me cynicism, he tauught me irony, he taught me to duck when I’m punched and go for the balls. He also inadvertently taught me how easy it is to wrap a male around your little finger, and once they’re wrapped up, they’re done, they’re lost, they’re yours. ‘Cause gruff and curmudgeonly as the BB pretends he is, I’m still his baby sister and he loves me dearly. OK, ’nuff with the saccharine. Besides, he’s feeling old now as a new Grandaddy, this should cheer him up.

Geewits – Hers is one of the first blogs I started reading. She is funny, irreverent and says what she thinks. I love me my wacky Texan. Yeah, she lives in Texas where it’s WARM!!! Well, except in her last post, but hell, anything warmer than here gets my vote.

Jocelyn – I’m sure Jocelyn has received this award a million times already. She is an excellent and hysterically funny writer. I can only wish I could write like that! The woman is brilliant.

Furiousball – I discovered him not so long ago. His blog is different from what I usually read, in that he does a lot of “this was my day” stuff. I like how he can spin a post out of the most unlikely things.

Susan – I love this blog. Susan is a mixed-media artist, photographer and mom living in Maine. Her blog is beautiful. I love the art she posts, and I so envy her talent. If you like art blogs, check her out.

OK, well that was interesting, and like Ian, every time I put someone down here I thought of lots of others. But there you go. It’s the nature of the beast.

    hey thank you lady. actually all the “this is my day” stuff is fabricated so people don’t know that i’m actually huddled in the corner of my empty house waiting for my cold dead heart to stop beating…oh whoa, was that out loud.seriously, thank you.

  2. Jazz says:

    Furiousball – you and me: a match made in heaven. You have a cold dead heart, I have a cold black heart…

    This is funny because I’ve thought about that exponential thing and have gotten most of the awards I’ve seen elsewhere, but when I first saw this one, I laughed and thought, “Well that’s one I’ll never get!” And as for the exponential part, I never pass these things one, or rarely anyway, so I help keep the exclusivity, I guess. I am most honored by this however, because it came from YOU!

  4. Congratulations to everyone. Well deserved.

  5. Jocelyn says:

    Way to go for the balls with each of us. (I loved that part of your tribute to Big Brother). Thanks, punky. I have to say I think part of Furiousball’s tribute should be due to the screamingly-funny comments he leaves around Blogland. I follow him just for the comments.

  6. Rachel says:
