I've received several awards since I started blogging. I really do appreciate these. I do not, however, know what to do with them. They don't usually fit the style...or lack thereof on my blog. They come with rules and questions. Overall, they are a lot of work. So...I smile and then do nothing with them. Sorry to all who gave me one and saw me ignore it. I still think you are all awesome.
As proof, I created my own award. This is the debut of the "If I were rich, I would not fly to your home and have my stunt double kick you in the shins" award. Pretty much a long way of saying your blog doesn't suck.
There are no rules. You do not have to post a link to me and babble about yourself. You do not have to give it away again. You can do these. You can also print it out on rice paper with edible inks and eat it. You can pretend it doesn't exist. You can put it on your mantle, blog, pet lemur, head, car, spouse while sleeping, you name it. You can burn it, scorn it, treat it like an elderly sibling who always got more attention than you. I do not care. No rules! Anarchy in blogland, I know.
Here are the people I am awarding for all around non shin kicking abilities:
Brent over at Building Castles on the Beach. He doesn't endorse them being built in other places apparently. He is clever and funny without making you angry with your life choices.
Chanel over at Fabulously Neurotic. She has an interesting writing style that makes me smile at life's frustrations.
Danyelle at Myth Takes. She is a very nice person and a writer. That happens a lot...look at me, but she also gives great advice.
Emily at Her Website. She is a writer and soon to be author. She lives in New York, which I think is awesome. Her blog is fun and approachable despite her fame and notoriety.
Michael over at SLC Kismet. He has been very supportive of my blog and my writing. He does very funny posts about writing and pop culture.
Doug and his I Like Cheese site. Who doesn't? He does short, funny bits and he draws stick figures dear to my heart.
And our final winner is dbs and Think Stew. Mmmm...brain stew. Well written and thoughtful.
That's it for this round of lucky award winners. I'm not even going to go tell them that they won. If they find out, great! If not, no rules people!
