It's My First Time...

Wow. I am sitting here in total bliss, surrounded by a cloud of unbelievable.

I GOT AN AWARD. And even more importantly, I got an award from Quirky is a Compliment, a lovely blogger whose hair I used to admire back when I was in high school with her sister. This is my first award and I'm so thrilled to have it from her! What an honor! So, thank you Quirky! Here it is, displayed in all its glory and splendor:

And now, onto the bureaucracy of receiving awards:
Put the logo on your blog.
Add a link to the person who awarded you.
Nominate at least seven other blogs.
Add links to those blogs on your blog.
Leave a message for your nominee on their blogs.

So, 7 Blogs that are completely Brilliant with an E.
Was It For This: Written by a kind and lovely gal who is also tough enough to participate in triathlons and sleep outside, like on the ground and stuff. I exercise vicariously through this blog.
The Typing Makes Me Sound Busy: A hilarious writer with a life no one could invent and a Boxerbeast that destroys apparently everything but his owner. She also majors in desultory adjectives using the prefix douche-. It's impressive, actually.
Simply Me: The musings of an inspired, crafty young woman with an etsy store and a beautiful, introspective, adventurous life next door to gorgeous beaches.
Gone Dutch: The travels and trials of an expat living in the Netherlands. Hey, she likes Jim Gaffigan, so she MUST be cool.
Ask a Korean: My newest addiction. A highly intelligent, thought-provoking, yet question-answering blog written by THE Korean living in the States. He can answer all your Korea-related queries, such as, "What is an ajumma?" Just ask.
Roboseyo: I like this kid. Another expat living it up in Korea. In a hilarious, culturally-aware, semi-sarcastic state.
Hobocamp: I don't know this gal, but she can 1) tell a story and 2) make me laugh so hard a little bit of pee comes out. Seriously.

So, those are my awards. Not that I am in any position to be giving out awards, much less receiving them.
Thanks, anyway!


  1. Thanks for the award! I'm always happy to find someone else who appreciates Jim Gaffigan!

  2. I greatly appreciate the Monica Gellar reference when talking about the Hobocamp blog, whether it was intentional or not.

  3. Umm an award?? Amazing! Good thing I have my acceptance speech already planned out.

    Thanks tons :)

  4. wow, you are too kind! thanks for the award. | will put the fancy thing on my blog as soon as i figure out how to do so. might take me a bit. i'm slow.


Leave me a sweet comment and then go have a donut. It's the most fulfilling duo. Do it, you'll see!
