Dahlings, I am walking the red carpet. Tabitha awarded Jacqui's Room the Lemonade Stand award. While I did not go crazy tracing the origins of this award through the blogosphere, I did learn that it is an award for showing "gratitude and/or great attitude."
Clearly Tabitha has only been pretending to read my blog. Or maybe she loves Jacqui's Room, but nobody has yet invented an award for whining in the face of tremendous luck and generally being ranty.*
I am to post the graphic above (check), link back to Tabitha (check), and nominate 5 other blogs. I'm not nominating any other blogs right now. This is not because I am an ingrate with a bad attitude. It is because nobody is more gratitudy and attitudy than Christy, but she's already won this (twice?). I promise to spend many hours scouring the internet for deserving recipients of whom you have never heard and to post them for your viewing pleasure.
In the meantime, if you haven't checked out Tabitha's blog, I do recommend it. She has some of the most thoughtful book reviews and essays on writing around.
* I am kidding, of course, and am much appreciative. It is always good to be smiled on by great folks.
