- Fizzy Thoughts: I'm wicked spiffy

I'm wicked spiffy

Saturday, July 12, 2008

I'm feeling pretty special. Yesterday, two of my favorite bloggers bestowed upon me these cool awards:

This is the Arte y pico award. Isn't it purty? Bethany awarded me this, because she thinks I'm spiffy. Which cracks me up, because I actually use that word in conversation. Bethany and I recently bonded over blog re-models and vampire books. And she has an incredible knack for winning most of my give-aways. I prefer to think that she really does like me, and she's not just sucking up for the free books. Please don't disillusion me.

And this bad boy is the Blogging Excellence award. Like chartroose, I've drooled over this baby and she is way cool (not to mention spiffy) for passing it on to me. She thinks I'm "wickedly smart, wickedly funny and wickedly cool." Boy do I have her fooled. However, I'm keeping the award.

Seriously guys, you both made my day (I would have squealed with excitement, but I was stealthily reading blogs while at work...and it's pretty hard to stealthily squeal).

Thank you.


And now, it's time to share the joy. Because that's what these blog awards are all about (well, that and the warm fuzzies we all get from staring at them after we sneak them into our sidebars).

First up, the beautiful Arte y pico:

I would like to pass this onto:

*Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf: who is probably oblivious to the fact that I read her blog, because I hardly ever comment. But I'm seriously in awe of her ideas...especially Weekly Geeks and the 24 hour Read-a-Thon. Someday, I'll even participate.

*Eva: who is also probably oblivious to my readership. Really, I need to comment more. I watched Eva participate in the read-a-thon as both a reader and a cheerleader and she was amazing. Eva is a smart cookie who writes wonderful reviews and other posts. Although I'm a little intimidated by the fact that she reads The Economist.

*thekoolaidmom is the most recent addition to the list of blogs I subscribe to. I love her style, and yesterday's post is a great example of why.

*Jerry, a fellow travel junkie, blogs every single day about a variety of topics...recipes, travel, snarky commentary, quizzes. I don't know how he does it, but I hope he doesn't stop!

*chartroose: Back atcha...I think you're pretty darn smart, funny and cool, too. Plus, that header never fails to make me smile. You can stalk me any day. Just don't touch my TBR pile.

Moving on, let's share some Blogging Excellence love with:

*Lisa at Books on the Brain: Not only because we were separated at birth, but because she's done some amazing author interviews and guest posts. I'm pretty fond of all her other posts, too. I'm currently in withdrawals, because she's on vacation. The nerve.

*Trish of Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'? She taught me about Google Reader. I like her for more than just that, but for her post on Google Reader she deserves this award. Although the ice cream post was pretty darn good, too. Now that she's married, I think her posting has dropped off a bit. Slacker.

*Melissa hosted the Expanding Horizons Challenge last year. I don't do many reading challenges, but that one inspired me. Thanks again, Melissa.

*Natasha of Maw Books: Natasha has an awesome blog. She puts a lot of thought into her posts (this is an excellent example) and her Stephenie Meyer giveaway was amazing. I don't know how she survived.

*Bethany: Best. Commentator. Ever.

Ah, yes, my posting has dropped off. But it will come back. We had to work out computer issues (he had the NERVE to want to be on the computer when I wanted to be on the computer)...but we're doing better now that we have a laptop in addition to the PC. So expect more posts after this freaking giveaway that has TAKEN OVER MY LIFE.

Melissa said...

Oh. That was silly of me. I thought I had put up my thank you comment (thanks!!) and that it was in moderation or something like that... I feel a wee bit stupid right now. :)

Thank you, softdrink! It's even cooler than the big "E." Boy, I can just feel the blogalicious love imbuing my workspace right at this moment! Ahhh, loverly!

Natasha @ Maw Books said...

Thanks! Appreciated more than you know! I'm not sure how I survived that Stephenie Meyer giveaway either but I'm alive and that's what counts.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
