Giving out awards can be tricky. Who do you decide to pass on to. My blog world is pretty small and a lot of the blogs I follow already follow each other. Sometimes I look and the blogger already has the award and I read a lot of blogs that don't participate in awards. I will still include them sometimes to give them out a shout out so others can find them too.
Then there are the bloggers who are so funny and talented that passing to them is kind of like Junior High and approaching the really cool girls to see if they want to hang out at your house after school. Because my time is limited, I am slow to add to my reading list and have given out awards to a whole lot of the blogs I follow already and when I find a new one I haven't been following long and include it in awards is like bringing a cake to the new neighbors. Will they be thrilled to be welcomed or are they hiding behind the door pretending they aren't home because they really are the kind of people who like sit quietly and read by the fire. Or maybe like me they find it very hard to pick out specific blogs when everyone they read is unique and wonderful in their own way.
So... I have my No Strings policy. Enjoy the Recognition.
Accept if you like and pass on if you want to.
I would like to Thank a very cool chick
mommymommymommy at KISS (Keep It Simple Sister) who has bestowed the Oh My Blog Award upon me. ( And has the Coolest Profile Icon Ever )
I Love this meme and simply can't resist it. The rules are a hoot!
When I read her "music of my childhood" it was just like running in to someone from my old neighborhood and remembering sitting on the couch together after school and watching tv.
She is recovering from rotator cuff surgery which has to be incredibly painful so make sure to go by and wish her a speedy recovery.
When it comes to passing along Everyone on my blog roll is invited to participate because you are all cool chicks! But in this case, as rule state, I also would like to Recognize 3 blogs.
2 I have followed for awhile.
The Empress at Good day, Regular People
The Mayor at Crazy Town
Because they are really cool, popular chicks and they are still nice enough to hang out with me sometimes.
And 1 a newer find:
Elissa at Birch Swinging Because she is like the cool girl sitting in the desk next to you when you realize you are both snickering at the same thing and then you spend the rest of the year trying not to get caught passing notes.
The rules of the Award are:
1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award EVER!
2. Choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB award:
(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus.
(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment.
(c) Write a “Soundtrack of your childhood” post.
(d) Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog. Basically, you’re talking to the camera about whatever.
(e) Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, make up,
etc) and post it.
3. Pass the award on to at least three, but preferably more, awesome bloggers as yourself.
And I also Thank
Lee The Bubble Bath Queen at The Life and Loves of the Bubble Bath Queen
Another terrific blogger and fine owner of one of those mysterious treasures, a teenage girl.
And she is also a very cool chick.
Which is another award I have deeply coveted.
The official rules are:
List 6 things you are really good at and pass on to 6 other wonderful bloggers.
But in this case I'm using my rules.
I would like to Recognize Every blogger who visits this post because you are a Kick Ass Friend for stopping by!
Don't panic. No Strings applies except for one: You have to admit you were here by leaving a comment. That's all.
But if you do decide to participate let me know because I would love to read what you have to say in these memes and see who else you think is great and find more great blogs I should be reading.
Enjoy All You Cool People, see you after school or if you don't answer the door I'll just leave the cake on the porch.
And then I'll hide behind a tree. And when you come out I'll jump at you and scream AH HA!
