Some Awards

So, on Friday I got a message from A Little Sprite that said that she had something for me at her place.  Now, we all know what that means in blog land, so I hurried as fast as my little mouse would carry me over to see what she had for me.  Sure enough, she's given me the:

As part of the award acceptance, I'm supposed to delve into the cellars of my blog and find good posts that fit seven criteria.  So, here goes.

Most Beautiful:  Some of My Writing.  I'm not sure if this really counts as beautiful, but my medium is writing, and this was a character sketch I did for a friend that I think really turned out well.

Most Helpful:  Yet Another Post About Bad Drivers: It's Cliche, but That Doesn't Make it Any Less True .  It's an oldy, but it does teach how to drive in roundabouts so other know what in the hell you're doing.  It may only be needed by people in Utah, but I still think it would helpful if the whole state would read it.

Most Surprisingly Successful:  I'm. So. Cold. Part II: Paul May or May not Get Taken, He'd Never Know .  This one's about our heater going out.  It's still my most successful post and I have no idea why.

Most Underrated:  Where did I put that... .  It was my third post and has zero comments. I don't even think I can find how many hits it has because the number is so low.  Anyway, it's about the phrase "I lost my virginity."  I think it's a fairly clever way of looking at it.

Most Controversial:  Faith in Science .  This one is about how it takes just as much faith to believe in science as it does to believe in God.  At least it's controversial around the college.

Most Prideworthy:  Sally, The Adventure Begins.  I really am proud of the story I'm writing now and this is the start of it.

And now, I get to pick seven blog that I follow and award them the opportunity to take a stroll down memory land and show off some of their lesser known posts.  The winners are:
Semi-Coherent Thoughts
Average Girl
Vinny C
Oilfield Trash
J Little John

And Sprite also gave me:
Which she then gave to all the people she gave the last one too.  I'll do that same. :)

Pretty sure the Liebster is supposed to go only to bloggers with 200 followers or less, which I might be breaking... but I don't really care.


  1. Woohoo!!! A blog award! Sweet! You are, of course, well deserving yourself. Thanks!

  2. Aww... you are a darlin... Thanks sweetie!

  3. You deserve it.
    I have loved reading Sally to :)

  4. Is it bad that I don't want to receive one of these awards simply because of the minimal amount of work it would entail?

  5. @Vinny
    Thanks you. :)

    I'm glad you notice. Why can't everyone else see that I'm a darlin?

    Thanks. Congrats to you too.

    Thanks for giving it to me. And I'm glad you're enjoying Sally, I've really enjoyed writing it.

    I wouldn't say it's 'bad.' Surprisingly, it didn't take much work at all and it was nice to point out some of my favorite posts that few people have read.
