The Unbearable Banishment: i'd like to thank the academy...

i'd like to thank the academy...

Do you read E over at *E* Deconstructed? She happens to be one of the brightest (as evidenced by a spate of recent impressive test results) most adorable (as evidenced by her occasional photo posts) bloggers in the either. Her taste is impeccable.

And she just gave me this here award.

Thank you, my dear. What a nice thing. I’m from the Midwest and graciously accepting a compliment is not something we’re very good at. Being comfortable with a compliment is a sure sign that you have grown haughty, so this is difficult for me but thank you.

As is required by law and as part of my budding participation in Buddhism I, in turn, award this prestigious honor to the following people who provide a seemingly endless stream of entertaining prose. If you wish, feel free to pass it on to others who are equally deserving.

daisy fae who is, after all, my blogmother.

nurse myra, who teaches me about medical things that you won’t learn in any University.

nuttycow, who was one of my first regular readers and the first person to correspond with me off line.

jo, who makes me wish the Themes Thames was outside my window.

fwengebola: Is it okay to laugh at your misfortunes? Because I do.

anniegirl1138: Perspectives on the writing life.

a free man: life in Oz filtered through American eyes.

and

my newest discovery, fuck you, penguin. At least one laugh in every post.

I'm British, and I can't handle compliments, but then they're rare. But cheers.

Wait, was it even a compliment?

Oh, and it's Thames with an A. It's not outside my window but about an 8 minute walk over the A4.

fwe: "Themes" is the preferred American spelling. Like color. And rationalize.

Actually, that's a lie.

Thanks for that, I think. Don't really know what a dardos is, but I could use a self-esteem boost so I'm going to assume that it's a good thing.

Speaking of thanks, did I thank you for recommending "Netherland"? It's fantastic!

You're welcome. I decided to pop on over here real quick to see if you managed to put the picture up and good golly you did! Good job!

And, I'm gonna be visiting "fuck you, penguin" just as soon as Im done here. If only for the honor of reading a blog with that title.
