Well here's to show you how crazy the blogger buddies I have met are. Earlier this week I was informed that I have been honored with another award by a fellow blogger, the coveted....
From Chris Mollo, author of Is This Really Happening? . Chris is from Arizona, fat, bald, ugly and broke (I HAD TO) and a member of THE Nation, having lived in New England. For better or worse, Pahdon has made him homesick but apparently he enjoys this blogs' Red Sox content as he visits often and always leaves comments.
Being from Arizona, obviously Chris and I have never met. In fact, the only communication we have had is through posting comments on each other's blogs. That is what makes this such a special and humbling award !
One look at Chris's blog and it is obvious how much time and effort has been spent on the layout, research and self-education as he has only been blogging for a few months. I have no idea where he gets the content for his posts, but as the title indicates he writes about stories that seem too ludicous to be real.
AND they are always written in MR. Mollo's own special way. This guy pulls NO punches... Chris tells it like it is - no holds barred on obscure stories and articles that NEED it to be told that way about...no wonder why I like his blog so much.
So Chris, I am honored for this award and I thank you very much. And whether it be within protocol or not, I offer the same award back to you - to complete the circle.
So, I ask everyone to bang that link and let Chris know YES This IS Really Happening !!! Nuf Ced
"Knowing" Chris like I do, I'm sure he won't mind if I use this space to also present this award to Mr. Bob for just kicken it around. If you don't recall read this post from earlier in the week. So swing on over and give Bob and Bess a visit... and when you do... tell him Nuf Ced
Lastly, I'd like to present the "Circle of Friends" along with....
TOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... Penny Piva for Diet Coke-Fueled Life "In which a girl (more than 41 but less than 43 years old) who can't focus gets it all done: university instructor, writer, pastry chef, Mary Kay consultant, mom, crazy aunt, friend, divorcee (rhymes with "Yay!"), MS-battler--all fueled by the sweet brown poison itself--Diet Coke. Wheee!
I present these awards to Penny because she TRULY is my inspiration... well, as far as blogging goes, at least !!! But seriously, I've known Penny for 35 years or so, but hadn't seen her in 25 years. We reconnected on Facebook where I was writing off-beat notes about the Red Sox and current events. Being the genius that she is, she "forced" me to enter the blogosphere and was the one that actually opened my account and got me rolling. The rest is all downhill from there. So, if you like Pahdon drop by Penny's for a Diet-Coke and thank (OR spank) her... she'll be glad you did.... Nuf Ced
And now a message from our sponsor.... uh ok, from me.... you may have noticed a few "changes" to the site - well, anyone with eyes would have !!!! The slide-show of the awards, the translator for my foreign guests (OK, I'm an idiot for not adding that sooner !!!)... BUT, I have added a "wall" named...... GREEN MONSTER.... this is where I will be adding some of my personal favorite blogs so my readers can find them easily.... although, you may realize how twisted I am too... OH WELL - ENJOY !!!!
Thanks for stopping in for a visit. It's just my opinion, so please PAHDON it. Y'all come back now, ya heah !! Nuf Ced
