Another ##&%$# Award
I have done a Portrait of Words Story . It is HERE.
The internet is flooded with awards.
Is there a blog out there that doesn’t have an award or two or three or ten.
Is there a blogger that hasn’t been expected to take the award they were given and present it to five, or ten, or even fifteen others.
I doubt it.
It seems that when the impulse to create an award hits the creator thinks so highly of what they have done they want it to go out across the internet in an ever expanding line. And the truth is it does.
But somewhere along the line the award loses its real meaning, if it had one. It becomes just another task.
Pick five blogs that …. And give them the award.
So people do and the award goes on.
Sometimes it even goes to a person that might just deserve it.
In the beginning I played along.
You might remember I had a sidebar full of awards and an award room with more.
It was impressive.
Then one day I asked do they really signify anything. Does anybody really care.
So there gone.
I still accept awards. It would be insulting not to.
But unless they are exclusive I do not display them.
But, and I hate to tell you this, I got bit by the award bug.
Not the getting bug but the giving bug.
I felt like creating an award.
It would be an exclusive award.
The only rule is the person who gets it is never to pass it on.
If he or she wants it will appear on his or her blog only.
Hey, this is fun so here is my first created award.
This award is given to a blogger, Thom, who has the ability to take memes and turn them into vehicles for lowbrow and sometimes highbrow comedy. His answers either leave you groaning in pain or laughing yourself off the chair. In any case he is a funny as you get and certainly worthy of this first ever exclusive award. The rest of you funny people eat your heart out.
Hey, it’s only my opinion.
CHAOS DAY TWO
Yesterday was chaos day one. Three grand kids in the computer room, an unfinished dog costume , a kitchen filled with youth group, Pennie getting blood drawn, phone ringing, electric scooter running out of juice, lost car keys, VBS began , one confused dog, lost purse, found everything, and on and on. Today expect more of the same. Life is grand.
