Ah, dang it all.

Karen over at Karen Sugarpants gave me this lovely award:

Which not only means that she likes me, she really likes me - but since I was first on her list, that she likes me best! Neener neener. Maturity is not my strong suit.

That's the good news. The bad news is that I have to pick 10 people AND ONLY 10 PEOPLE that I love to give the award to. This is causing me stress, since, like Garrison Keillor, I believe that all the children are above average.

But I forge ahead. If you aren't on here, I don't love you any less. I just love you more forgetfully.

The rules are as usual: if you are awarded, you have to pick 10 people to award, or Satan comes and steals your soul. No big. You're supposed to link to them and email them and layder layder layder I can't hear you too much work holy cats already.

1. Let's knock off two birds with one unlinkable stone, my 2 sisters who do not have blogs - Paula and Elvie. Ok, Paula has a blog but it hasn't been updated since there was snow on the ground, and since we live where there is no snow, it has been a LONG time, I'm just sayin'. Anyway, I'm just lucky that 2 of my readers are 2 of my favorite people who also happen to be my sisters. I am blessed that way.

3. Kevin Charnas, who regularly makes me laugh and cry, sometimes in the same post. He is a homie but thinks he is moving to Ohio. Impossible. I will lock him and his lovely partner Will in my basement (if I had a basement) to keep them from going. He is kind and smart and thoughtful and cute. Love me some Kevin Charnas.

4. Jonniker. I have no idea why this woman isn't on everyone's must read list. I love her stream of consciousness and her endless ability to get herself in embarrassing, ant-laden situations. I can't mention loving her without saying that I also love all of her commenters, who have their Own Special Thing going on with each and every post. It all adds up to be one of my favorite places on the internet.

5, 6, 7, 8 - My girls Super Des, Suzanne of CUSS and Other Rants, Count Mockula and Ms. Little Pea. They are all distinct and wonderful voices who are smart, funny and thoughtful. Des is more tough, Suzanne is more sarcastic, Count Mockula is more matter-of-fact and Ms. Little Pea is like a cool breeze, but they all stick with me through thick and thin and comment on whatever crazy crap I write. I appreciate every word.

Oh, man, I am on 9 already and I am just getting to Jessica. I love Jessica because she is funny and honest and is a librarian and because she has massive, unruly hair like me.

10. I knew I shouldn't do this. I have about 50 more people I want to award, but I am going to just close my eyes and pick...oh, I cheated and looked: Life and Times of Chantel. I love Chantel. Love her attitude, her fortitude, her shoes...She is a strong woman who has had to be strong for a long time. She makes it look good.

All right, people. I feel lucky that I ran out of space before I ran out of people I love. That's good, right?

Go forth and award.

Ohh, the presssure. "I would like to thank the academy...".

You know this is my first award ever. I love you too. Now back to the pressure.....

I have trouble with awards that make me select some people instead of others.

So, thanks. :)

Suzanne said...

I should think of something sarcastic to say, but I am too touched right now. I have basically adored you since I first laid eyes on your wise, witty, and wonderful blog.

The upside is that you awarded many people I would award, including you, so that leaves me with more space to come up with ten people. Thanks for the award and for doing the dirty work!

OK, I'm almost crying here! Seriously. You are the best!

Karen Bodkin said...

I DO love you best. Shhhh...don't tell anyone else. ;)

Glennis said...

I love the fact that you just introduced me to some new bloggers to read!

Kevin Charnas said...


Thank you. Truly. Flattery will get you everywhere, even with a mo. As a matter of fact, I'm only wearing my laptop right now. Yes, that's right, your very kind award blew my panties clean off.

Thanks again, baby. And in this market? We might not be moving anywhere, which would suit me just fine.

Count Mockula said...

I feel the love, and it sounds like high-pitched squeeing from over here! Thanks, man. I'll never forget our wonderful night in Chicago NOT seeing the boat parade, but having enough to talk about that it didn't matter.

super des said...

ha ha ha, I'm tough.
I agree with Count Mock that our night in Chicago was one of the mostest funnest times ever. (And of course I wish I was coming to SF for this year's, so we could do it again.)

If you need help feeding and watering Kevin in your basement, I'm happy to take Tuesday/Thursdays.

Oh what a great idea!

One of my favorite sayings ever is "May your house always be too small to hold all your friends."

Same thing with blogs.

Tracey said...

oh jesus, i'd pass out before i'd be able to pass all my love awards out. i pre-give up. heh.

LittlePea said...

Yay! I got an award! Thanks Suebob, you're pretty breezy yourself.

Mocha said...

You love us more forgetfully. Lovely. I'm going to steal that phrase.

I, too, love Jonniker and read her regularly but fail to comment. That's sorta like I do here but I forget to comment more forgetfully here.

Still love you the MOST.

Incognito Mom said...

Coming out of the woodwork to say I really like you too. Thanks for always saying it the way I wish I could.
