A Quartet And An Oxymoron
It is barely a month since I last had to sit down to reply to folk who had so kindly offered me one award or another. And away we go again …
This time I am expressing my gratitude for a quartet of fresh gifts.
Number One is the One Lovely Blog Award.
This comes courtesy of the author of Win, Lose or Draw, a site full of amusing, thoughtful and inventive art employing a variety of approaches to image-making.
Number Two is the Inspiring Blog Award.
This comes courtesy of Janice from AURORA MOREALIST, a true chameleon of a site, as her followers well know. New visitors always welcomed.
Number Three is the Beautiful Blogger Award.
This comes courtesy of Archana from Ravenousforlife, a good site to find poetry that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.
Number Four is the Reader Appreciation Award.
This comes courtesy of Steph from Certainly not lost down under, a site promoting a range of tasteful poetry and music.
I am supposed to list “seven things about you that will not come up in your blog entries”. This is clearly an oxymoron; however I think I have managed to circumvent the problem.
Seven Things About Me That Will Not Come Up In My E-log Entries
1. My mother’s maiden name.
2. The name of my primary school.
3. The identity of any of my ten thousand passwords.
4. The identity of any e-logs which first attracted me because the owner’s icon looked really hot.
5. The identity of any e-logs which I think have an icon that is utterly naff. (Baffled? Check the ever useful Urban Dictionary.)
6. The identity of the e-log whose “About” page causes me to roll my eyes in disbelief.
7. A seventh thing that will not come up in any of my e-log entries.
Since only two of these Awards request personal information, and one does so in a self-contradictory way, all my nominees get a Free Pass on the information front. If you made the list you may pick up any of the Awards you are not already in possession of. If you didn’t, please don’t be offended. 15 is only 15 after all, and your omission is based on numerical considerations rather than any wish to slight. I know several people featured here don’t like to participate in the offering and receiving of awards. No blame; indeed I may join you one day. Meantime, if an unwanted invitation accompanying your inclusion here turns up at your site please ignore it, beyond knowing that it arrived to demonstrate the esteem in which I hold you. (Either that or your icon looks really hot. 😛 )
