Three Items of Interest

I'll color-code it because I'm fun like that.

First: Seth and Teresa broke up. Time to move in for the kill Sister Cordy. (Didn't I ever mention that I love a good hopeless romance from time to time? Consider it mentioned.)

Second: [Cue the applause] I got my first blogging award. CTD from The Crash Test Dummy Diaries who said, "I think I would pick Jami at Superfluous Micsellany because I don't know what those words mean and I never understand what she's saying, Plus there's something bold and brave and sweet about Jami." I sound a bit like a barbecue sauce, but I am never one to pass up a compliment. Thank you, my dear.

Now for the hard part, choosing six people who won't roll their eyes too much at getting an award, who haven't already received it, and who are truly kreativ.

  • OK, Blogger #1: Elastic Waistband Lady at The Smiling Infidel. She is one of my all-time favorites for looking at the world in brand-new and somewhat freakish ways. Here's one of my favorite posts from EWL.
  • I love Tracy M and Mo Mommy, but they are both a tad busy right now, so I'll just say, they're mighty fine, talented, fun ladies. We can save the pyramid scheme-type flattery for another day.
  • Blogger #2: Sue. I know she'll roll her eyes and not have time to do anything about it, but she breathes kreatively. By turns her blog is silly, heart-wrenching, fun, and profound. I never miss a post. Those of you who have been around for a while will remember this poem, posted in her honor.
  • Blogger #3: Ray whose spiritual musings at his blog Things of My Soul and comments throughout the bloggernacle have earned him a favored spot on my must-read list. I know he's not a mommy blogger, but he is married to one. Ray, please feel free to pass this on to BCC and T&S, etc. That would be kinda funny.
  • Blogger #4 Jo over at Tangled Me. Because I really like her. And because she used to be a midwife. And because she takes beautiful pictures. And because she calls her husband "Bald Man."
  • Blogger #5 Heidi Ashworth at Dunhaven Place will single-handedly bring clean, fun Regency Romances back into fashion. And that, my friends, is a very, very good thing.
  • Blogger #6: You. That's right. You. The person who is reading this list hoping that I will type your name. Consider it typed. There are so many blogs I read and love. I can't stand leaving anyone out.

Ohh ohhh! I got a pretty award! The best part is your explanation yes. While I don't sound like a barbeque sauce, I do sound interesting. Go me! Thank you, thank you. I would like to thank my mom for marrying a white guy, so I could be tangled all my life, with one foot in both worlds. It was the beginning of a very convoluted and confusing life.

Melanie J said...

Okay, I'll be your 14th! I'm too nervous to ask people to follow my blog, and yet they do, so I have a whopping four followers.

Youngblood4ever said...

Thanks for introducing me to a few new blogs to stalk. Loved this posting!

Heidi Ashworth said...

Jami, thanks so much! And way to go Melanie J for being the 14th follower (I need a 24th--I have a thing about 23--any takers? Anyone? Anyone?)Thank you and I can't wait to check out these other bloggers you have mentioned. (How do I get my award? Do I copy and paste? I'm hopeless, I know . . .) Here's to sigle handedly bringing fun, clean, regency romance back into fashion!

Jami said...

Jo, you deserve a pretty award.

Melanie, thankyouthankyouthankyou! I feel an inner sense of peace. Everybody lines up so neatly now.

Youngblood4ever, thanks for the safe stalking. I hope you enjoy the new blogs. They're kind of addictive actually.

Heidi, I'd help you out with the 24th follower thing, but I can't follow you twice. (Same with Melanie.) Sorry.

Regarding the purdy award: I copy-and-pasted mine. I even managed to do it without my teens' help. They were so proud.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Copying and pasting about to commence. (My teenagers are too snooty to be proud of their mom. They worry about me instead.)

Papa D said...

"[Cue the applause.] I got my first blogging award."

Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!

(My twisted sense of humor wants to joke about you having the clap now, but I won't say that in a public forum like this.)

Oh, and thank you for your comment about my blog. I really appreciate it.

Alison Wonderland said...

I just can't get behind the whole Cordy thing. Just tell the guy already and we'll all move on!

Jami said...

Ray, you're such a guy. :)

Alison, let me recommend that you never read Austin's Persuasion. It's all about painful inner dialogue and not moving on.

Melissa said...

And if she told the guy and just moved on, there wouldn't be much left for anyone to read.

Nat~Nat said...

Well, I might have become a follower if I'd gotten a stinkin' award!

Especially since we have so many thing that we disagree strongly on and I still think we're great compadres.

Oh well... off to cry.
