Something for me
After my last post, I had quite a few people who said I should do something for myself. As luck would have it, this past week has been full of things for me, so to speak. I’ll break it down into 3 separate posts, so check back tomorrow for part 2.
Given to Me
Mindy @ The Suburban Life started my week off great by awarding me with not one, but two blogger awards! As I stated in her comments, I was flummoxed! I’ve been at this blogging thing since 2006, in various places, and not once have I ever received an award for anything! So, to Mindy, I want to extend a most heartfelt THANK YOU! You absolutely made my week!
I’m not sure of the rules, but since you’ve already received them yourself, it would be a bit redundant to give them to you again. Ya know what: fuck the rules! I’ve never been one to follow them anyway. You have ranked in my top 3 blogs to read since I first found you, so you deserve these awards again. Consider yourself awarded, my friend!
The first award is the Lemonade Stand Award. Not knowing the history of this award, I can only surmise that it means “When life gives you lemons, vent about it on your blog!”. Or something like that. That’s the way I see it, anyway.
– Put the Lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
– Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude.
– Link the nominees within your post.
– Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
– Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
The second award is the Best Blog Award. I’m still trying to figure this one out. What does it mean? Surely nobody thinks that I’m the “best” at anything. Except bitching and moaning about life. Oooohh! I get it now! Nevermind, forget I ever questioned it! I am the best at that! :-)
The rules for this award require me to nominate up to 15 blogs to share in my acclaim.
Since I don’t read a whole lot of blogs, my list is a bit shorter than it probably should be. I wish I had more time to follow all the blogs I’ve ever read, but that’s just an impossibility. I try to make time each week to read new blogs. Really, I do! But what usually ends up happening is that I put them in my blog reader, read my favorites, and then it’s bedtime. I mean, really people, you all are so good at what you do (and so prolific), that it’s all I can take in in one week. That’s a compliment to everyone on my list! Seriously! You’re all just too. damn. good. You give me something to aspire to.
And so, without further ado, I would like to bestow these awards on the bloggers that make me laugh, think, cry and commiserate on a daily basis.

They’re in alphabetical order, ’cause I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. It’ll be my little secret who my top 3 are. *grin*
While organizing my list of blogs that I faithfully read, I realized that my Blogroll wasn’t updated to reflect my favorites. That’s been fixed. Have a look; see if you find a new blog to enjoy!
Also, if you’ve looked at my “About” tab, you may have seen the link to my mEgo. Clicking on it should have taken you to the fully functioning mEgo to explore. Unfortunately, they changed their links, which caused mine to be broken. It’s fixed now. My apologies to anyone who may have been confused.
