I Got Me First Award Matey!

Katie gave me my first blog award! I'm all giddy with delight. She nominated 4 others aside from me, all which are well deserved nominees. I'm happy that Katie got one and happy for the others that are receiving as well. (Sarah and Spy would've been 2 of my picks had Katie not nominated them!)

I really like what this blog award stands for:

"This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY--nearness in space, time, and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who will choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I already know without a doubt in my mind who my eight are. (Which of course Katie would've been one as well, had she not already received one in the first place.)

My picks are:

Sex Scenes at Starbucks (Miss Betsy Dornbusch)

Mr. Stephen Parrish (whereabouts pending)

Merry Monteleone

Joe Barone

Erica Orloff

Jess Watsky

William Hammet (Where the heck ya been BILLY!!!)

Brian Howe (I don't know you all that well, but you've always got something positive to throw out there, and it really makes a difference "Ewoh" :D)

Congrats Peoples. Maybe you won't think it's a big deal, but I do, and we all know that what I say is GODSPEAK.

What can I say other than you F***ING ROCK!!!

Thank you both for the award and for the props on my blog. I never really know how the stuff I spew will land out there in the world/blogosphere... but thank you for reading and taking it how it is meant... uplifting and thought provoking.

My intent to leave my readers and the world in a better place for my having been here seems to be working :)

Holy balls! That's spectacular! Thank you, poops!

Ugh! I've made my blog private again. My parents have been nagging and friends have been complaining...I can't give you "access" because you need an email address, I think?

Well, give me your email. I think. Or press a button. I'm not quite sure on how to do it...sigh. Blogger, why can't I just make certain entries private?

Yay for all of's ya!! I love you all!!!

And JESS!!! My email is I hope that works, cause if it don't then I'm gonna cry me a fuckin' river if I can't read yer blogs anymore. (But if there really is stuff in there that you feel you can't share, even with "moi", I understand completely, otherwise, SPEAK FRIEND AND ENTER ME goddammit!!!!)

Hey Realm

Just wanted to let you know I posted some twaddle just for you. It's on a secondary blogger blog that's been sitting idle since I opened it:

Thank you, Realm. I've been away on Neptune on an important mission for the new administration. I'm ambassador to the outer planets :) But seriously, I thank you for the very kind gesture and will post it proudly.
