I Would Like to Thank the Academy

Despite the strikes paralyzing awards season, web awards continue to be distributed. Honestly, I really don't mind about the - hell, I don't even remember what the recently cancelled one was. And now you know why I don't mind, I never watch the things. Nevertheless, cyber awards keep making the rounds. And seeing as we're none of us unionized, it's all good.

Josie over at C'est la vie has chosen to give me The Wonderful Women of the Web award. I'm flattered. I'm always flattered when I'm offered an award, because it means "You like me! you really like me!!" (yeah, I know, but that was just SO damn easy!)

Anyway, this being said, I have to offer it to six others apparently, so here goes:

Rachel - because she's funny, she's wise, and though I only started reading her blog quite recently, I feel like I've known her forever.

Happy Downtowner - Because I have known her personally for what seems forever, and she is wonderful, web or otherwise. Besides, as XUP said, I just popped her meme cherry, I might as well pop her award cherry while I'm at it.

Jocelyn - Though she has probably recieved it a million times already. If you read her blog you'll know why. She has me in stitches most of the times I read her, she's a brilliant writer. And I will one day meet her. Yes I will.

Voyager - Although right now I almost hate her for putting up pictures of green things poking through the dirt in Vancouver while it's 17 below here in Montreal, I could never really dislike her. I found her when she was blogging about her trip to Africa and I basically have had a huge crush on her since.

Kwach and Ev - Ex aequo, as they write their blog together. I'm new to their blog too, and sometimes still have problems knowing who wrote which post, but I'm getting better at it. Their descriptions of life in "Nowhere, Illinois" almost (but not quite) make me want to move there.

Gnightgirl - Mom to a soldier in Iraq, collector of Beanie Babies for Iraqi children, her posts make me both laugh and cry. I love her blog. Read it.

And the ever entertaining Tangential Thinker CS, and Choochoo who's not around so much because she's busy splicing DNA and stuff. Then there are those who have already been nominated. Damn, I'm no good at keeping it down.

Getting this award reminded me that many moons ago, Ian gave me this award. I was down in Texas and totally forgot about it until now. The colours are horrendous, but the thought is nice.

All of you make me smile, or I wouldn't be reading you, so it goes out to you all.

Cheers!

I would like to thank the academy... err... Jazz for the wonderful award. As a former virgin *blushing* I feel like I'm part of a very cool group of people. Jazz and Mr. Jazz are my dearest friends ever, and I'm not kidding when I say that. You taught me a lot. *sniff*

Funny when you think how we met and it was all over a pillow under a desk :) The rest, as they say, is history. Love you my friend.

Yay you, well deserved!

Ian Lidster said...

I do like you. I really-really like you. I have a crush on you like you have on Voyager. Of course, I have one on her, too. Anyway, well deserved.

A Happy Downtowner said...

And I would like to congratulate you my dear friend. In my still virgin state, I completely forgot you had received one :) Must have been the feeling I experienced at having my cherry popped LOL

Now that me brain kicked back in, I wanted to offer you my congrats for this well deserved award.

Thanks for the heads up on these fine bloggers. I've already read a couple and really enjoyed them!

(You can pick your reads, but not your readers!)

Jocelyn said...

No matter where I go in this blogland, Furiousball kills me.

And you, my dear, have made me smile. I, too, feel we will one day drink lots of wine together and have a laugh. You know you want to see Lake Superior, right?

Thank you, darlin' Frog.

You rock, Jazz. You definitely deserve that, as do many of your awardees. WOOHOO!

Dumdad said...

Congratulations. (Why have I never been awarded Wonderful Women of the Web Award? That's sexist!)

Thanks for the pointers! I'm always keeping an eye out for funny bloggers.

Well, congratulations to you! And also many thanks. I know some but not all of these, so I'll have to check them out.

That girl said...

These are great suggestions, and I'm going to go read some of these fine blogs right now.

Congrats!
