Intermission- A Lovely Award

Intermission- A Lovely Award

Howdy.  When somebody gives you an award, you should at least acknowledge it and thank them, right?

The rules:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you.

2.  Add The One Lovely Blog Award.

3.  Share 7 things about yourself.

4.  Pass the award on to 15 nominees.

5.  Include this set of rules.

6.  Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs


1.   Thanks s1ngal!  Always a pleasure to hear from you, but even a little more so when you come with gifts.  (And really, any visit to s1ngal should be followed by thoughts of a lunatic.  They seem to share a brain.

2.  Done.  Widgeted.  Updated.  Sizzled like bacon and served on a place.

3.  Oh dear.  A:  I’m 9th generation Quaker.  I have the quilts and oatmeal, but no hat.

B:  I still name my photos and stories in 8-character (or less) file names.  If I were writing A Tale of Two Cities, I’d save it as atof2cit.doc.  Yeah, that’s how it was in keyboarding class so I just keep doing it that way.

C:  I’m technically 6’2 & ½, but I round it to 6’3.  So there.

D:  I have Clark Kent’s social security number memorized.  It was written down, so I filed it away.  (I always memorized the phone number to the closest Toys ‘R’ Us when I was eight, but that has become far less useful as I grow older.

E:  My middle name means, “He who walks through purple meadows”.  I have yet to meet a purple meadow, but I do enjoy walking.  For the time being, I’m living half of a lie.  Should I ever meet said meadow, I shall do my best to traipse lightly and enjoy the view.

F:  My cat is named Mylar, after the hard plastic expensive comics are kept in.  The next cat shall be named Polypropylene or Poly for short.

G:  I have never actually made an omelet, but I have made countless scrambled eggs.  The darn things always fall apart on me.  I was graded down a letter for not following instructions.  (It just saves time on chewing, right?)

4.  Get comfy, kids.

First off is kiradault.  The woman has given me more blog ideas than everybody else combined.  She encourages writers while telling heartfelt stories about her family.

Discoveries in a letter box is a nice blend of old photos and pictures combined with short stories inspired by what she’s found.  A nice creative boost.

I like lists; therefore I root for Listful thinking.  It’s funny.  It’s silly.  Good stuff.

Kim Kircher is my Northwest inspiration.  We both live around beautiful mountains, but she’s actually –in- them while I just look at them as pretty scenery.

The Byronic Man is terribly popular.  For good reason.  He’s just darn funny and he talks about movies because he knows how much we like them.  You can tell that he used to be a standup and you wish that you could attend one of his shows.  Laugh-inducing.

Writing for Daisies has much to like.  From talking about the kid’s surgery to the “hidden shame” of blogging, I just plain enjoy it.

Oh, Coco Ginger.  The only woman on WordPress that I’ve friended on Facebook.  She’s charming, emotional, and the easy flow of her descriptions of men playing tennis make me want to toss my computer out the window in a jealous rage.  She just makes the words flow and weave around her temperament.

The One Year Challenge started as a gal taking a break from flirting, dating, and all that.  But now she thinks she might have found someone worth her time.  Both states of being are fun to experience with her.

Just because I know Beth Amsbary in person, makes her no less intelligent or thoughtful.  She doesn’t post all that often, but maybe that’s because she spends all her time thinking.

Vera Silver is braver than I am.  She’s posting her book online as she’s writing it.  Me, I like to produce a finished product.  But she’s always looking for feedback if you’d like to toss it her way.

My interest in food is low.  But Cooking with Limited Appliances lets you hear about health and food in a way that is mouth-watering.

Dianne Gray harasses her coworkers, survives life, and still manages to keep her humor in an interesting way.

Everyone needs a photo blog to calm themselves with pretty pictures.  My pick is cat in water.

There are people in the world who sit around on their bums; like I tend to be.  And then there are people like Lesley Carter who take the world by storm and does more new things in a month than the rest of us do in a year.  She’s outta control, but in a good way.

If you need a quiet, insightful blogger, I’d recommend Bottled Worder.  There’s humor that sneaks in, but even though they claim to think too much, I think it’s just right.


5.  See above.  Go ahead; you’ve traveled that road before.

6.  I shall do that next.  Boo-yah.

Voila.  Next time it’ll go back to being less about Philip and more about stories.  Honest.  But I’ll leave you with “quotes” that have to be in video form.  Really, anything I say about awards won’t be as great as these two.  (If Harrison Ford laughs at your joke?  You’ve got comedy gold!)

Thanks again for the virtual-idol.  Toodles!

  1. Thanks for the nod! I shall try to live up to the honor.

  2. Oh, you do just fine every time.

  3. Thank you very much for the award! Forgive my tardiness in accepting it — I’m on a summer blogging break at the moment. 🙂 And congratulations to you as well! Looks like you have a great blog here, and I look forward to reading your posts. Just for the record, I can’t seem to make an omelet either.
