Well, I'm just pickled Tink!
Tink of Pickled Beef (oh seriously, is that not the best blog name EVER?) has graciously awarded me a Golden Spork award for best-looking blog.
I am speechless. (Heh. Never!)
And humbled. (Me? Uh, ok.)
And the proud owner of some new sidebar bling.
Which brings me to my failures.
Failure to acknowledge and pass along the previous awards that I was given.
Oh please forgive me, Junebug and ~JJ!
These two bloggy friends looooong ago gave me these awards, and I have been remiss.
From Junebug, I received this beautiful award.
Thank you, my friend!
In return, I would like to share the love. I know many people already have this one, but too bad. If you already have one, now you have another ... from me!
I hereby bestow the Colors of Friendship award on Holly at Anglophile Football Fanatic and Blue Momma at Life in the Fish Bowl. Both of these chickies are killer Scrabble players and constantly put me in my place (umiaq??? subzones?? Seriously, Blue, where do you GET this stuff?), yet they still like me and want to hang around and play!
I also give this award to ~JJ of Dirty Laundry, who always has a kind word. She also is the one who gave me this:
Apparently she thinks I am helpful or something! Well, I think she is totally awesome.
I am going to pass this award to Karly of Wiping Up Snot (another amazing blog name!), who let me write my first-ever guest post (when I had only written four of my own), and recently set me up to have a feed burner or some such thing that I don't understand.
Also to Lotus at Sarcastic Mom, who is my inspiration for photos and has introduced me to Weekly Winners. Who knew I could take cool photos?
The other recipient of this award is a special person. She has been my personal blog sounding board and my mentor, letting me guest post and be a general pain. She also is a real-life friend who listens to my whining and who listens to me when I tell her to get her head out of her butt. Now that's a true friend, right?
She gets BOTH awards from me ... for being my mentor and being my friend. She's also feeling a little punky-puny these days, and I hope some new blog decor will cheer her up a smidgeon.
Melodyann? Come get your bling, honey. I luvs you.
