I'd like to thank the Academy...

Actually, I want to thank Tiffany over at Hillside Hollow because she gave me this:

If I were giving an acceptance speech at a fancy awards ceremony, well, first of all, I would wear a terribly beautiful dress: preferably red and without weird cutouts or feathers or excess fabric in oddly unflattering places. Also, I would make sure that my hairstyle that took hours to create would at least look clean and not like a bird's nest when it was done. Finally, I would wear simple makeup and avoid that corpse bride look that includes 1/2" eyeliner and lipstick that came from the makers of "White Out".

Yes, I did watch the Golden Globe Awards last week.

Anyway, Tiffany gave Capicola, Boo Mama and I this award. What a wonderful pick-me-up. Especially since it came from someone I think the world of. I've said on more than one occasion that I want to be like Tiffany when I grow up. It doesn't matter that I might actually be a hair older than her.

Now it's my turn to pass the award along. So, so tough. I'm going to copy Tiffany's criteria:

1) How often do you update your blog?
2) The content of the blog - is it always the same or do you mix it up a bit?
3) My interest in your blog - does it captivate me, does it spark my interest in new things?

I also decided to give it to blogs authored by people I've never met face to face and blogs I haven't mentioned on my blog before. Just 'cuz.

Here are three blogs (of the countless that I regularly follow and love, love, love) that have been alternately making me laugh, cry, think and laugh some more:

And now I'm off to an awards show after party that better have plenty of chocolate on the menu.

Hi, I clicked here from Tiffany. Don't you just feel so special being one of the chosen? I read some of your posts and you are funny and I know why Tiffany picked you. I was saddened to see that you have forsaken Jack Bauer. I'm a HUGE 24 fan. It's on tonight. Go ahead, just watch a minute or two, just do it, you know you want to.
