My Unofficial Awards Ceremony

Welcome to my Unofficial Awards Ceremony of 2012, unofficial because there will be no rules and no awards. And, guess what? This just happens to be my 100th post!  I say it’s time to have a party.

We’ll have cake

This cake comes to you courtesy of Sandee. I hope she doesn’t mind…I simply can’t resist. It’s better than sex…or uh, it replaces sex, at least for someone out there. Personally, I see no need for mutual exclusivity, am I right? In any case, this will be good cake!

We can dress up

I say Yeses to these dresses! La La agreed we could borrow them for our party. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to wear Barbie pink and canary yellow.

No, this is not a wedding.

Guys, put something on. Okay, if you must…

I thank you, dear readers, for coming back to my blog time and time again. Thanks reading and for your thoughtful comments. I have made some cherished friends here.

I want to thank you for your blogs and for sharing your words, poetry, stories, photos, and your dreams, hopes, and fears. You have inspired, informed, and entertained me. You’ve made me laugh and cry.

I want to acknowledge a few bloggers who gave shout outs to my blog over the past couple of months. I appreciate your kindness, and see, I didn’t forget. Generally, awards make my cluttered brain mind more cluttered. Trust me, this is not a good thing. So, here is a simple nod back to you.

Mari Wells – Her knowledge of vampires, witches, and werewolves will delight you, and also a writer of fiction.
WedelMom at The View From a Slightly Twisted Angle – A humorous view of life and its many lessons.
JackieP at To Breathe is to Write – Inspired by her dreams to write and imagine, and a talented mystery writer.
Thoughts of a Lunatic – A real lunatic, writing 68,000 words for NaNoWriMo. Not to mention twice Freshly Pressed. Impressive.

Thanks to all of you.  They are all a pleasure to read.

Now, I’d like to shine a spotlight on two bloggers who have been supportive of me.

Sam Flowers at Blog, Rest and Play – I always feel I take a bit of Scottish culture with me after having visited Sam’s blog. He writes about art, cinema, television, music, and writes fiction as well. Check out Show Me the Monet about a defunct show, which had debuted new artists. You may also enjoy Sam’s walk in the Scottish countryside, Lost in the woods.

Shalagh Hogan at Shalavee.com – Check out her eclectic blog. Laugh with her in Mommy’s Monkey Mind. You may also enjoy Good Fortune, where Shalagh survived near electrocution while decorating her Christmas tree, while pregnant I might add.

Thanks to Sam and Shalagh.

Thanks to all of you for hanging out with me for the last six months. I look forward to more blogging adventures with you.

  1. Amy,
    your 100th post and an awards ceremony too! Congratulations on everything. I’m not sure if I’d look good in all blue, but honestly, probably better than in one of Lala’s dresses. And the cake? If it’s as good as you say, bring it on. 🙂 Good luck and here’s to another 100 wonderful posts.

    1. David,
      Thank you. You’ve been such a great blogging friend. The blue is merely a suggestion. I’m sure you can come some other fantastical idea. Perhaps you could come as Squid, dressed as a squid. Yes, I think the cake is in order! Thank you so much.

      1. Sure, Audra. I won’t tell anyone. The blue man is quite appealing. Now, just imagine frosting all over him. Sorry, what am I saying? El Guapo wants to have sex with the cake, so…this will also be our secret.

    1. Thanks, Leo! I’m so happy we met. You can’t go wrong with these dresses, right? Of course, you can have the blue guy, although you’re welcome to bring your own date as well 🙂 Blue guy does look fun, doesn’t he? That’s why I invited him! Maybe without all the blue he could be your type.

  7. Congratulations, Amy!! 100 posts is quite an accomplishment. The cake is to die for, literally. Nothing would make me happier than diving into that tower of frosted goodness head first.
    The pink and canary yellow dresses are STUNNING!! Why should Barbie get all the fun? I say we all start dressing in plastic shoes and hot colors.
    Thanks for always writing posts that are entertaining and thoughtful. I’m looking forward to the next 100!!!

  13. You’re looking pretty good for 100, B.F! But seriously, congratulations!!! That’s some very impressive work! It would take me and 9 other people to even count that high! 😉
    Did you ever see the show ‘Arrested Development’, B.F? One character (Tobias) was perpetually walking around in blue body-paint because he was hoping to be a stand-in for the blue-man-group (what I first thought of when I saw your blue dude)…
    🙂

    1. Thanks, SIG. No, I didn’t really watch Arrested Development, but I do recall that episode from somewhere. Do you know that I have CD of Blue Man Group! Yes, I do! Blue dude just wanted to come to the party. I think he’s a big hit. 🙂
