My bloggy life is in a shambles. I can't seem to post as often as I would like to and I feel as if my mind has been sucked dry (and not in a good way.) Things have changed for me recently and I’ve been really remiss about reading blogs, following blogs, commenting on blogs…in fact all things blog, so if I have missed you I am sorry and hopefully it's only a temporary situation until I get my
“But Tom,” I hear you say, “what could there be that you don’t already know?” That's a fair question.
Well, I’ll tell you. There’s plenty I don’t know. And rather than continuing to bullshit my way through life (not that that is a bad thing) I decided to finish college so I could cross it off my bucket list and hopefully someday prove to be a useful member of society instead of simply a burden. We can dream!
In this quiet interim between assignments, while my mind is temporarily available for bloggy thingamajigs, I wanted to acknowledge some awards recently conferred upon yours truly and pass them onto some very deserving blogger faves of my own.
Firstly, I wanted to thank the Unfinished Rambler of “An Unfinished Person (in this unfinished universe)” for bestowing upon me the coveted Sunshine Award! He is one of the funniest bloggers around and if you are ever in need of some cheering up, the solution is just a click away! Check him out if you haven't already.
While one might assume that this award was intended for bright, sunny or shiny people as I did, that simply is not the case. Rather “the Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.” I’m rather afraid to ask what it is I inspire (Dry heaving? Teeth clenching? Painful rectal itching?), so I will leave it to you to decide.
As awards usually do, this one comes with a bevy of rules which I am obliged to follow, including:
1. Post a link on your blog to the person’s blog who gave you the award. Okay will do.
2. Pass the award on to 12 other bloggers. Seriously? Twelve? That’s a lot of peeps!
3. Put a link on your blog to all the recipients blogs. Ugh! Sounds like work to me.
4. Leave a comment on the 12 blogs and inform them of the award. I can do this.
5. Place the award on your blog. Lucky for me there’s always room for awards!
The hardest part of getting awards is deciding upon whom to give them to, but thanks to minutes of weary analysis, supplemented by the wise and mysterious Magic 8 Ball, I have chosen the following as worthy recipients of this award because they inspire me and more than fit the criteria for this award. Please check out their blogs and see for yourself!
My twelve picks are injaynesworld, The Blog O’Cheese, Calvin’s Canadian Cave of Coolness, NOT WORTH MENTIONING, The Non-Review, Experiments in Authenticity, Quirkyloon, The Good Girls, Becky*Povich*Writer-Humorist*Bliss Follower, The World According To Donut Girl and Naked Cupcakes.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to Ms. Anthropy for my second award, the Versatile Blogger Award. If you haven’t had the pleasure or reading her, she is a beloved blogger and a wonderful writer with a great sense of humor! Please do yourself a favor and swing by and check her out at Ms. Anthropy…Sarcastic Granny.
This award is said to recognize bloggers who
7. I briefly sold new and used cars for a living. (Everything you’ve heard - i.e. drugs, sex, cannibalism - is all true.)
I would like to pass this award on to some of my favorite bloggers, so they in turn can pay it forward to their own favorites. My blog picks for receiving this award are:
Hollywood Spy, nonamedufus, I Think It’s Interesting, Pearl, Why You Little …, Confessions of a Reforming Geek, How To Become A Cat Lady…Without The Cats, Sagittiferously Yours, Scrappin’ My Bliss, Adventures of a Middle-Aged Drama Queen, Knucklehead!, Car Dancing, Here Is What I Think, Shink-wrapped Scream, I Shoulda Been A Stripper and Hillbilly Duhn’s Times & Tribulations.
If you are not familiar with any of these blogs, I highly recommend you follow the links to their pages and read and follow them. If you don’t, I might just have to send you another award, and nobody wants that. Check ‘em out! Go on now, before I set the puppy after you and let him lick your faces.
Okay, right...did I mention he is a giant mutant puppy with a razor sharp tongue and that his saliva will burn you like acid? Yeah...that's the ticket.
