A Threesome? How About An Eightsome?

Phew! You survived my mini book-journey blitz. But in a few moments, you’ll wish you were back there, because today, I’m going to whisk you into catatonia with a long-delayed awards post. See? You already resemble a frozen deer in headlights.

But seriously, many wonderful bloggers have blessed me with awards over the past two months, and before they rescind, I must attend to their lovely nods.

Rather than follow the rules for all eight nominations—and risk complete reader abandonment—I will massively cheat and create a combined award response. My ménage à huit, so to speak. And I won’t follow any rules.

But I figured I should divulge at least one personal tidbit, so I racked my brain for an anecdote worthy of your time. Needless to say, I found none. So instead, I shimmied to my living room drawer and whipped out my collection of TableTopics cards. Plucking a discussion card at random, I retrieved the following:

If you could have any view from your back porch, what would it be?

Well, TableTopics card, in response to your worthy question, I would say the view as seen from a boat on Lake Lucerne, Switzerland. Pure. Heaven.

My Recent Anointers and Their Awards

The Sparkly Award from Brigitte’s Banter

Because Sparkly is my middle name.

The Fabulous Blog Ribbon, also from Brigitte’s Banter

Hey, I think I used to drink this beer.

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award from ellamedler

I’ve never been in a sisterhood of anything. Ella, you got this introvert good. Bazinga!

Most Inspiring Blogger Award, also from ellamedler

Apparently I—along with a small collection of millions of other bloggers—am one of the most inspiring bloggers out there.

Inspiring Blog Award from nyparrot

Wait, didn’t we just cover this one? Oh, I see; it’s from a parrot. That explains the repetition.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award from chanceofsun

Okay, now wait just a hari-kari minute. How many inspiring awards are there? But this one’s from an American fitness trainer in Germany, so I’m not about to question. She’ll make me do burpees.

Illuminating Blogger Award from Fay Moore: I Want To Be a Writer

Fay says I’m illuminating. The fireflies around her home probably skew her perceptions, but let’s not tell her.

Super Sweet Blogger Award from Meeka’s Mind

You KNOW this one pleases me. Meeka’s Mind knows Carrie’s Stomach.

The Passing of the Torch

Despite my joking commentary, I extend a big, appreciative thank you to these wonderful bloggers for reading my words, commenting on my site, and interacting with me on theirs.

As for my nominees, how can I possibly choose? I follow so many fabulous blogs.

And I’m lazy.

So, I bestow each of these awards upon everyone on my blogroll. If you are not on my blogroll and I frequent your site, then please accept the awards as well. I’ve tried to keep the list current, but I follow many new blogs and don’t always remember to update.

For those who aren’t slackers like me, please click the links of my generous awarders above for the actual rules for each of these awards. I will not list them here for fear of becoming a recipient of your telepathic tasers.

The Vanishing Likes

Oh, and speaking of my blogroll, who the hell stole all my “likes”? When I first posted that static page a few months back, there were dozens of “likes.” Now there’s one. What exactly is the universe trying to tell me?

Wow. One whole like.

I bet it was Connie*…

What would your response be to that TableTopics question—what view would you want from your back porch? Have you ever used those cards? Have you ever had an eightsome?

*You’ll be happy to know my publisher has corrected my name on their site. Connie is now history.

      One finds it at the top of my blog (it’s a static page). Eight find it by singing a song, dancing Russian style, and clicking their heels three times…

      “Octagonally awesome”—I like that one!

      Thank you, and please feel free to take any awards you don’t already have. Consider it a blogger award smorgasbord.

        Seemed numerically appropriate to throw something eight-related in, lol. Ah, but you’re generous and I do thank you for sharing, as well as for including me in your blog roll! Have a great day!

      Thank you! Nothing like hoarding them all up and then putting together a post that follows none of the rules. Funny–I’m not a rule breaker in real life.

      Thank you! And now I have a new word to use: chuffed. Not sure what it means exactly, but I assume it’s something nice, because I doubt you’d say, “I’m so disgusted by you.”
