A Daily Dose of Zen Sarcasm!

And I Didn’t Even Channel Sally Field

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today,
at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least
we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let
us all be thankful.


It is the time to be very thankful, for two lovely ladies whose blogs I greatly enjoy have bestowed upon me most lovely awards.  A few days ago, it was Melissa of Expatriate Games who decided I deserved an award.  It's got special instructions, too, which is quite fancy.  And today, Anita of Prairie Dreams gave me another pretty award!

Thank you to both for not only stopping by on a regular basis and reading up, but also for thinking that my blog deserved honors.  I enjoy both of yours immensely as well– Melissa is candid and funny and has a very cool mix of music always accompanying her posts AND she has the cutest fusion baby ever; and Anita is candid and earnest, and her blog is incredibly informative, and she takes amazing pictures.

And to continue in the spirit of gratitude, here are both awards and awardees.  The awards are in the order they were received:

Whee!  It's shiny!  And it has instructions:

Brilliant Weblog is a prize given to sites and blogs that are
smart and brilliant both in their content and their design. The purpose
of the prize is to promote as many blogs as possible in the blogsphere.

First, here are the rules:

  1. When
    you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with
    the name of who has given it to you, and link them back.
  2. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
  3. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brilliant Weblog'.
  4. And then we pass it on!

I would like to pass this award on to Anita, and also to Ghosty, Shannon, Juliet, Suzanne, Reb and Jeanine.  All your blogs are so much fun, and I look forward to reading them or seeing them whenever you post. 



This is award number two.

This one has no set limit of recipients, so I'd like to give one first to Melissa, and I'd also like to give one to all the above recipients (hey, two awards are always better than one, right?).  I know I'm forgetting people here, but I'll probably have a d'oh! moment later tonight.

Feel free to rebuke me if you feel left out, okay?

Anyway, thank you to both of you wonderful bloggers again, and I hope everyone had a nice humpday.  Tomorrow is Thursday!  Wheeeee!

  1. Wow – I’m honored! I’m gonna have to make some room in the ol’ sidebar for these! 🙂 Thank you!

  2. You’re welcome… and thank YOU! 🙂

  3. Wow! I’m honored that you have bestowed these awards on me because I love your blog and think you are just the cat’s meow so to speak.

  4. Thank you! I wish I blogged regularly enough to feel like I deserved the honor (not that I question your judgment…!). I will have to pass on the award when I get more than five straight minutes of baby- and husband-free time to myself.
