The lovely Katrina Perkins has nominated me for two awards at the same time. I think. What the hell, it’s my blog and it’s my acceptance post, so we’re rolling with two, coo?
Katrina is a thespian with ups. She is a Magna cum Loud graduate of the stage and screen who punches out her alarm clock every morning with clean hair and a beastly passion to hit the mark. She loves the hours she has determined into being, because that’s what dreamers do once the blueprint goes retail.
So it happens, that Ms. Lovely Locks has nominated me for Inspiring Blogger, which can only mean there is a dearth of inspirational stuff going on across WordPress. She also nominated me for Versatile Blogger, which happens to be my third nomination in that category- or . . three more than Sean Hannity.
Two awards in one? Jesus, I haven’t gotten this lucky since Vegas.
As per the rules, well, they’re simpler than Zach Galifianakis’s barber.
1. Display the Award Certificate on your website. (How timely, seeing as how I finally figured out how to display award certificates on my website. Let’s just say, the Red Sox catch on to winning World Series titles faster than I catch on to the widget thing. Sorry 4am, but you asked for it.)
2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award. My God….actresses. When is it not about them. Umm, did I just say that out loud? Awkward.
3- Present this award to 15 other deserving bloggers. Yeah . . as if there were 15 other more deserving bloggers than me. Um, why am I still talking out loud? What in the hell is my therapist doing with all my hard earned cash?
4- Let my nominees know they have been summoned.
5- List 7 interesting things about moi.
Okay, first off, the 15 deserving bloggers I have nominated. I love them all.
1- Susie Lindau
3- The Wish Factor
4- Rowland Jones
5- Fantasy Furnace
6- Break it down Pete
7- Adventures of a Dog Mom
8- 4am Writer
9- Veronica: Pajama Thief
10- The Hook
11- Sara No “H”
13- aFrank Angle
14- Wilderness of Words
15- Reading Interrupted
And now, for the seven interesting things about me. The ones which do not include my previous life as a male stripper. Why am I still talking out loud? That’s it, I’m calling my therapist right freaking now! What time is it in Paris?
1- Proud owner of a cool black cat who goes by Mr. Speaker.
2- I used to be be able to dunk a basketball.
3- I once shared the most amazing conversation about writing with the author Julia Alvarez. We went on for over an hour. What a gift.
4- When I was eight years old, I wanted to be a pilot. When I was nine years old, I realized it was much easier to just date a stewardess.
5- Speaking of, I once dated a girl who was dating a Philadelphia 76’er. (Not Charles Barkley, but. . he was a teammate of Sir Charles).
6- I own an extensive collection of vintage sports cards.
7- My daughter is my best friend. Don’t tell my son. Or Mr. Speaker.
Thank you Ms. Perkins, for nominating me not once . . but twice. Some day, I’m gonna have to write a screen play up just for you. We can do lunch on such a thing. And since I’m the writer in this creative entanglement, I’ll pay for the cab ride to the five star joint we have in mind.
I’m pretty sure you can grab the punch line from there.
