Thank you²

Award Kreativ Blogger2 I am woefully behind on reading personal blogs, and I'm definitely not commenting as much, as I'm sure some of you have noticed. I'm still reading you, but I kind of save it up and read a bunch in one swell foop, so you're probably not seeing me daily. I seem to be adding more and more political and news blogs to my feed, and I suppose my writing reflects that. I'm just a skosh consumed, but I try not to let it be in a bad way. I'm just very highly engaged with the political process in our country, trying to stay involved and on top of things. Or so I tell myself. I try not to get to the point where I blow a gasket (or as I once heard someone say, "blow a casket").

However, I heard from two of my blogger friends that they had given me this award. First was Howard of Soundtrack to my Day, who is amazingly knowledgeable about music. He often reminds me of bands I haven't thought of for years, as well as bringing new artists to our attention. Thank you, Howard! Next was Alaina at Mrs. Miss Alaineus Alemanac née Miss Alaineus Alemanac, who recently got happily hitched! She said that because of what I write here, she's become more interested in politics, and that makes me happy! One of the things that makes me cringe is hearing someone say, "Politics? Oh, I don't care anything about that. That's boring!" What?! That is simply not acceptable! So Alaina, one of the things you like about my blog has taken me away somewhat from personal's a double-edged sword, isn't it? Cuts like a knife, baby...cuts like a knife.

Anyway, thanks to both of you. I appreciate it very much.

Now, the rules state that you're supposed to write a few things that others may not know about you. I have received one of these awards in the past and I believe I wrote about several things at that time; I had a hard time doing it then, because in 3+ years, I've told you quite a few things about myself, but also because some things a gal just has to keep to herself! You're also supposed to nominate others for this award. I maintain that anyone who writes a blog deserves a Kreativ Blogger award (I love the European feel to the name, don't you? Makes me feel so...continental.), because it is not an easy thing to do consistently, so if you do so, please feel free to snatch this award for your bad bloggin' self!

Oh, and the countdown to Super Bowl XLIV has begun. One week. I promise to not get too crazy here about it. I'll save that for Crackbook. :D GO COLTS!


  1. Oh, goody! I have been craving an award from somewhere and beginning to think I would have to manufacture my own (and I may, still, since no one appreciates my work like I do!). Glad you got it; you deserve it; glad you shared it.

  2. This frum actually enjoys reading your blog. While we don't always agree, we do remain adult about it and I even think we both learn from each other. That is part of friendship, yes? And please check out our blog, I have posted pictures with me and one of the wolves.

  3. Beth, you do what you can do. Don't fret over it.

    Congrats on the award! Well deserved and from two awesome bloggers no less.

  4. It is getting harder and harder to keep up. Congrats on the award. Think we need to get some fine cham-pog-nee for the weekend???

  5. Congrats on your receiving the award. Your blog is, as always, eloquent, well stated, logical... I enjoy reading your site every time I visit!


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
