I'd Like To Thank...

GUESS WHAT?!? I won the lottery in Nigeria AND a blogging award all in the same week!

First, about this incredible honor: It is THE ARTE Y PICO BLOG AWARD. This award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity, and for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium. Very few people are ever given this award. In fact research shows that ONLY SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND of these Arte Y Pico awards have been bestowed; so please don't infer that this is a chain letter in sheep's clothing. Each award links back to the original site: The Arte Y Pico Blog, which is entirely in Spanish but I am sure is an absolute honor to be associated with, since there were no pornographic pictures that I could see. In addition there are RULES associated with winning this award which I am required to post here or there may be an accident or some other great misfortune--but not in a chain mailey kind of way, I'm just sayin. You would have to get up PRETTY EARLY to fool a gal like me.

First, I need to acknowledge the kind Bloggess who bestowed this award upon me. A Ginormous Thank You to Mrs. B. Roth whose musings can be found at http://mrsbroth.blogspot.com. Mrs. B. is a new reader who is fond of purple. You are welcome here anytime Mrs. B. although I realize you will probably not join us for cocktails as you are breastfeeding. That's ok. More for me...

Next, I need to do my bit by increasing the number of awards given to SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND AND FIVE by passing it on to five blogs of note. May I have the envelope please.........

(BTW: I had WAY more than 5 blogs to give awards to-but technospazz that I am could not figure out some of your blog addresses from the comments you leave on my blog. Please spell it out going forward. Like I said, I may be coming into some money...)

www.therecoveringlethargic.blogspot.com This blog is so much better than my crappy blog.
www.missthystle.com Funny and Classy with a capital K.
www.rocketwife.com in an effort to atone for calling her tween sister a douchebag.
www.myliberalguilt.blogspot.com Who knew funny and smart were like peanut butter and chocolate?
www.creativenachos.com For Tasha, my most loyal reader who loves rainbows and sunshine

I don't think Dooce needs this particular award. Something about the fact that her WII fit giveaway garnered TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND PLUS comments leads me to believe that she's a bit beyond arte y pico.

So, thank you to all the little people and the big hipped people and the people who are related to me and the people who married me for reading my occassionally drunken ramblings. I SHLOVE YOUSH GUYS SHO MUCH.

Here are the rules for the award recipients:
Here are the Arte Y Pico Award rules :
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.
2. Each award should have the name of the author with a link to their blog.
3. Award winners have to post the award with the name and link to the blog of the person who gave them the award.
4. Please include a link to the “Arte Y Pico” blog so that everyone will know where the award came from.

Which is saying something, because up until now the best day of my life involved whiskey, three red socks and a midget named Wastey....good times, good times.

Thanks Lorrie!

Tasha said...

This is WAY better than when I was given the "Rainbow Brite" award (that came with a a wand that rainbows actually shot out of!)

Thank you thank you thank you for such an honor Lorrie....(tear)

Lorrie, sorry about your shins. I redecorated recently, but my eyes have had time to adjust to the lack of light.

Anyway thank you so much for recognizing my work. It's been a tough 6 weeks of blogging and I just didn't know if it was worth it. Because of this award I feel I can continue for at least 2 or 3 more hours.

Let me know you are coming next time and I will open the blinds.

Yours Truly,

(as my blogging associations call me, and no I do not have an odd fascination for Carson Daly)

Congrats to you and your winners!

I want to play! I LOVE pico de gallo,(with an oaky chardonnay or a decent margarita), and I DO have an odd fascination for Carson Daly-

do those count?

Wow, I've never known such honor until now! And to think, it's all because my little sister is a douche bag! :)

Thanks, this was cute!
