Thankful Thursday, on a Friday

I have a LOT to be thankful for this week - three different awards, from three different bloggy friends!

I'm sharing the love of these awards Academy Award choosing just one "winner" in each category. Ok, I'll admit it...when I started choosing from so many wonderful bloggers, I found myself choosing everyone - which is probably the reason that this Thankful Thursday is posting on Friday. I'm not very good at this.

Thank you Christy at A Lil' Welsh Rarebit, for the "Premios Dardo" award.

"Given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing... created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web."

Wow. Can I put that on my self evaluation at work, under "unplanned accomplishments"?

As part of this award, I had to search my name in Google images. This is what came up. This is my formal work picture. Don't I look all professional?

Next, I had to do a Google search on "Unfortunately, Kari". Here's what came up, with my comments in italics.

Unfortunately Kari will not be able to attend this weekend's "Rock And Shock Convention". because she is going to a "stop, drop and roll" seminar.

Unfortunately, Kari was worse the next day. which is why she doesn't like to drink the night before a day with toddlers.

Unfortunately, Kari is kind of an incarnation of my randomness. Exactly.

Unfortunately Kari did not know which, if either, of the peaks was Scartaris, and the sun was obscured by clouds anyway. so I've got that going for me, which is nice. (10 points if you can name the movie that line came from)

I would like to pass this honor onto Kirsten at The Norwindians, because she's my inspiration and her blog embodies the description of this award.

Thank you Lucy at Lucy's Life in Suberb World, for this next award.

“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers."

Ok, now I am totally blushing. And this award goes to one of my special bloggy friends, Andrea at Sweet Life.

Thank you Hope Floats at Misadventures of that Girl, for the Honest Scrap award.

For this award, I need to list ten honest things about myself.

  • I don't like following rules.
  • I rarely read directions before attempting to assemble things.
  • I could eat an entire box of Thin Mints in one sitting.
  • I was a total geek in Jr High.
  • I am still a total geek.
  • I "un-friended" a relative on Facebook.
  • I take naps with my kids on weekends.
  • I've convinced my 5 year old that she still needs a nap, because I need a nap.
  • I read my own condensed version of long stories to my kids at bedtime.
  • I'm only listing 9 honest things (see first honest point).

...and this fun award goes to Issa at Issa's Crazy World for her honesty, mixed with humor.

Ooh I loved reading these lists! So fun - and so glad you liked your award! Congrats on the other two, too! I have eaten a whole box of thin mints in one sitting...many times. Those are damn good.

i also read "shortened" versions of stories and can sometimes convince b to nap, which of course i do right along side him! you look beautiful, by the way in your work photo and i love the "unfortunately kari" bit... too funny!

Andrea's Sweet Life said...

Congratulations on THREE awards! And thank you so much for awarding me one, the description of it is so freaking sweet - THANK you!

Kirsten said...

Wow thanks. I'm not sure I deserve it. :-)

I'll try to make my blog worthy.

Issas Crazy World said...

Oh you are so sweet. Thank you. I'll put it up and pass it on in a day or two. (I don't like posting on weekends.)

You un-followed a relative? That is just freaking awesome. I once had a MySpace page, but when my step-brother started commenting, I turned the whole thing off.

Issas Crazy World said...

Oy. Also, I for some reason can't find your email and blogger doesnt send it to me when you comment. Can you send me one, so I have it. I promise not to be a stalker. :)

Mine is issascrazyworld at gmail

Hope Floats said...

I love the quote on the bottom of your page...
I was married by judge-- should have asked for jury... cute!

anymommy said...

I read short versions of books too. Completely love that you unfriended a relative. Now I want to know what happened!

Heather said...

Bugger - see what happens when my laptop kaputs on me. Anyway I tagged you for the smoking typewriter and your sister - see you deserve it tagged twice.

Oh and I love the formal work picture.
