You know those award shows, when the recipient of the pretty bauble can't be bothered to actually show up to receive it. Because they are above that or below that, or some such nonsense.
Well, I am feeling a bit like that with none of the bravado, and all the chagrin because I forgot to thank Stephanie for my award last week:Even after she brought me back BlogHer swag. (I'm unworthy.)
Look what was inside:
Because there are days when this could become my motto. Tattooed on my forearm.
I started blogging because it gave me a place to write, to monkey around with words. I keep blogging because I found a community of women that stun me with their astute observations, their witty words and their brutal honesty.
And as dopey as that might sound, it makes me feel just a little less lonely in the world and often these women make my day:
Bad Mom (Yes, she has the award already and is one of my closest friends IRL, but whatever. More goodies for her.)
Frog and Toad are Still Friends
Temporary ? Insanity
Bloggedy Blog Blog
My math is all wrong, and I haven't even named half the blogs I adore, proving I can't do a meme or award right to save my life.
But this is a start. If you've got a moment, go check them out. They are amazing...
