"It's a MAJOR AWARD and I won it!"

That is a classic line from A Christmas Story. The Bumbles are such movie lovers that I thought I would thank them with that bit of movie dialog. They said the nicest things about this ol' gal on their blog, and now I get to pay it forward.

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and their blog link.
2) Pass the award to ten other blogs that you’ve discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Following the tradition started by The Bumbles, I am going to flout the rules and pass the award on to three sister bloggers:

Kwizgiver -- A high school teacher, a loving daughter, practically a godmother to a certain rascally puppy, and in her way, a very daring blogger. It takes a lot of courage to hone in on and discuss some of the topics she takes on. BONUS: She has very eclectic taste in books and she reviews what she reads.

Snarkypants -- Ah, my Snarkela. Like me, Lisa is a fan girl. Her love of David Cook reminds me of mine for Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Greg Maddux, Bruce Willis, Jon Hamm ... (Is it me or is it getting warm in here?) Like me, she loves her furry roommates. However, unlike me, she has a genuinely mystic side, and that informs her special view of the world.

Boliyou -- Her blog is all over the place, but in a good way. You never know what you're going to find. Memes, quizzes, movie reviews, photography ... It's fun to see how she mixes it up, and where her posts take her (and us).

I would take my hat off to you three, but it's humid tonight and my hair is soooo frizzy So instead I'll just close by thanking you for the entertaining and thought provoking posts.


  1. awwww ... that was so sweet! Thank you, my dearest blog sister and primo idea generator! For a minute there, I thought you were gonna say my cookie love is like yours for all those guys rolled into one and I'd have to respond that that's a LOT of love! (But most likely true!)

    Thank you thank you thank you!

  2. Thank you!!! I'm flattered. :-)

  3. Thank you so much! I'm so happy!

    "Fra-gee-lay. It must be Italian!"

  4. Maybe its a bowling alley? The deed I mean.

    Best movie ever. We bought the leg lamp for my dad for X-Mas recently and he displays it proudly each December. Mom's cool with it.

    Thanks for the intro to Lisa's blog - good stuff!
