What happens when an ordinary blogger goes mad from the guilt of unacknowledged awards? Crazed with anticipation of her next holiday, in only a week’s time, to Queensland – ‘beautiful one day, perfect the next’. Just, plain confused and muddled?
This, by the way, is NOT Queensland. Queensland is warm and sunny and full of weird people. This is Thredbo. Thredbo is cold and snowy and thinks it’s in the Tyrol but it aint. Thredbo is where me and my baby (Ms M) and her friend spent the weekend. THEY snowboarded. I read. Perfetto!
She mixes stuff up. She disobeys Rules. In other words, here goes.
I’d like to give my heartfelt thanks to Mystic Circle, who’s nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.
I’m always going on about wanting to be reincarnated as a higher life form (preferably a dog or cat) – so I’m encouraged to read that animals DO have souls, because Mystic Circle can SEE them. Which is kind of nice, because I had a very dear dog called Wellie that I often think of. In fact it was my fault Wellie died, because I walked him without a leash. So anyway Wellie, if you can hear me, I’m sorry and I love you – and Mystic Circle I really do hope you’re right and he can!
Meanwhile, DedePuppets, whose name is NOT Dede, has honoured me with the Sunshine Award (obviously she KNEW I was going to Queensland!). Thanks a heap! She’s an artist who makes funny puppets on sticks, each with their own quirky personality. Personally I identify with Devil. Which one is you??
Last but not least, Postcard Fiction has VERY kindly given me the Genuine Blog Award and the Reader Appreciation Award.
In PCF’s own words “Welcome to Postcard Fiction, a spot for literary exploration in fifty words or less.” I love the pictures too – and here is another one for you, PCF! Fifty words on this, maybe??
I’d like to pass the Versatile Blogger Award on to some extremely versatile blogs and here they are:
- The Wanderlust Gene. Fantastic pictures!
- The Path We Share (ridiculously easy ukulele songs that don’t suck?)
- Equatours, because I want to go places like that.
- Cloudywithachanceofsarai – she’s so sweet and so is her dad
- the bilingual Streets of Tottori
- the gifted poetry of veehaunanifitzhugh (and you have no idea how hard it was to spell that!)
- Soon2beacatlady? ok spelling now officially crap
- the very literate Fem Fatale
- the Road, a dedicated fellow atheist
- Shine Divorce, who I just love (and so probably give awards twice to!)
Here it is folks!!
I’d also like to say a big thankyou to these SUNNY bloggers by giving them the Sunshine Award (if they’ll take it, that is):
- The Tale of My Heart
- Dhoble the Cop
- and Mr Bill Jones Jr!!!!
For the Rules that go along with these awards, please google, as it’s my bed time now. IN the words of the immortal Beatles ‘I’m in love (with you, obviously) but I’m lazy’.
