That’s right folks. I’ve been tagged for the first time and I’ve received my second award. I don’t know which way to fall! I was going to post about how aggravated I am about the World Series rain delay, but I figured all you SITS (Sisters In the Sauce) out there are probably sick of all the sports between hockey, football, AND baseball. So on with the tags and the award.
I’ve decided that it’s just too many blogs for me to recommend for both the award and the tag so I’ve split the number of “winning” blogs in half. I’ll do the award first.
Meaghan over at I Kicked Cancer’s Ass has awarded me with the Proximidade Award. She claims that “This blog invests and believes, in ‘proximity’ [meaning, that blogging makes us ‘close’ – being close through proxy]. These blogs are all charming and they aim to show the marvels of friendship. Let’s give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to eight bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text.”
Such kind words from such a cool gal. I’ve linked her and I am only listing 4 winners because the other 4 I’m tagging. So here are my Proxmidade Award winners. These are totally cool bloggers who are charming (even the guys) and friendly.
Ken at Dad to Two – Ken is a totally friendly guy who gives a Dad’s perspective in a blog world full of mommys. (Sorry SITStas but I gotta give Dad props every now and then) This guy is worth the read.
Nancy Ellyn at Chilled White Whine – Nancy is a BIG TIME fan of Jackson Browne and probably the nicest blogger you’ll ever meet.
PJ at PJ’s Prose – PJ’s a woman deeply in love and I think you will enjoy reading her posts about love, life, family, and sacrifices as much as I do.
Brian & Steven at Green Dads – These two forty-something gay fathers have been together over 17 years and are raising a five year old son, Darius. That’s totally friendly and charming!
Now for the tag: Babette over at Definitely Maybe has tagged me with an “Eight Random Things” tag where I must list 8 random things about me and tag 8 others. Ok, I will list 8 but tag only 4. Here we go…
1. I went to college in the early 80’s for computer programming because I believed computers were the future. I quit for a semester when I started a new job and never went back. Talk about missing the boat!
2. I collect 50’s & 60’s bar and glassware.
3. I have over 250 beanie babies in boxes in my basement.
4. Every so often my birthday falls on Mother’s Day.
5. My ex-partner has 6 different Cher tattoos on his arms, leg, and back.
6. I was runner up in the Miss Cooper River Drag Beauty Contest when I was 25.
7. My family owned a gas station in my home town for over 45 years.
8. My middle name is Preston. My first name is actually Lewis.
Ok now I tag the following blogs:
I Do Things So You Don’t Have To – Now JD can get tagged so you don’t have to.
Tamicks – Tamicks is one cool New Yorker and I’d really like to read about her 8 random things.
Wonderful Things In Life – I like Mommyko. She’s a multi-blogger and I picked her cause I wanna see if she’ll really do it.
The Wise (*Young*) Mommy – Another great blog and her Halloween picture has inspired me to want to know more.
I can’t believe I did it. And now I’m off to watch the flyers win. (I hope)
