I have won my very first (very serious) award!

And it is the best, b/c it is bestowed upon my humble blog by one of the best people out there!


Of course, as with every Bloggy Award, there are A Few Rules. They are, forthwith:

  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.


Now that the formalities are out of the way, on to the good stuff.

I pass this award on to:

Teh Portly Dyke, who in all of her portly dykiness keeps me learnin’ and laughin’.

Renee of Womanist Musings.  For never failing to stretch the the way I think.

The Red Queen of Elizabitchez.  Ours is a long history of mutual blog stalking throughout all of Bloglandia.  Not a troll is safe when we combine our powers against you.

Tobes of Hear Me Roar.  She will take a rape apologist to task.

Cecelia from Ojibway Migisi Bineshii, bringing attention to Native News and Women’s stories. 

Wear it proudly, all you who receive it!  I know I will!


And, thanks, Pido.


One For K…

Every now and again we all need some cheering…

When I found out that BSR had a Buffy addiction to rival my own that he was also passing on to his children, I knew that we were going to be good friends.  I didn’t expect we would be Phriends.

It was pretty much a slippery slope from there, but in a totally good way.

BSR is great for an email chat if you are down.  He is thoughtful when you need good advice, even when he is going through emotional turmoil of his own.

He has friggin’ adorable children, and that is another reason to admire him, he is truly one of the truly great single fathers I have encountered.  He doesn’t want a cookie for doing something special, he does what he does b/c he is a good parent, and he knows it is a tough job.  For that alone, he truly is a diamond in the rough.

He will send you things randomly for your birthday.  He is cool like that, and even though the Spalding Gray book he sent me made me cry full blub in the doctor’s office where I was reading it, I still consider him a great Phriend for thinking of me.

Strangely enough, he likes music that was popular from my wheelhouse (yes, I do believe that I am the baby of this group of Phriends), so when I noticed that he likes No Doubt, I figured, What the Hay, I could post a video that was one of my favorites from then, and I would bet it would bring him a smile.

BSR, I can’t begin to imagine what you are going through, but please know that you now have and will always have Phriends here, in Bloglandia, and even in Meatworld.  None of us are more than an email away.
