Good Things! Good Things!

Okay, no more renditions of the Warren Zevon classic, "Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me!" I'm going to knock off the whining and complaining for now.  If I look at the bright side, I just realized I can start collecting social security in only 6 more years... provided they still have any money left in the coffers by then. And my house will be paid off in 10 years.  Plus, I have copious quantities of Dr. Pepper empties stashed in the basement that could be returned for enough nickels to feed a family of 5 for three weeks. (And since I'm currently a family of one while Vlad is off at college, it will last even longer.)  In the event I can scrape enough shekels together to go out to eat, I can take advantage of the 55 & over menu.  So you see, life is worth living.

But, the thing that really made life worth living this week was returning from a lovely trip to Massachusetts to find another award from the Quirkster!  Now I have 2 awards to grace the pages of my blog!  This one originated with The Scholastic Scribe and I have the honor of being the 900th blogger to register my Superior Scribbler Award.  (As you can see, it's a rather exclusive club.)    

I'm number 900!  I'm number 900!

Here are the rules Quirky sent me for becoming a Superior Scribbler:

*Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
(see below)

*Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.  (In this case. Quirky at Musings of a Quirkyloon.)

*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!

Here it is:
The Superior Scribbler Award!

I hereby bestow the Superior Scribbler Award on these Bloggy Friends:

Mr. Glob... because he has a cool name and he's afraid of Mormons too.

Eternally Distracted... because that's what I am.

JB at Black Thoughts... because it's going to take more than a hamburger to make her happy.

Aubs over at My Life on Lined Paper... because she's a great scribbler and I hope she starts scribbling again soon!  (I've missed her scribblings.)  

And last but not least...

Nanodance... because she's my primo scribbler friend and I wouldn't be scribbling without her.

There you have it... my Superior Scribbler nominees.  I hope you'll have as much fun reading them as I do.  They'll make life worth living again... I promise!

Thanks, again, Quirky!

That's my Cat Lady, always looking on the bright side. And CONGRATS! said...

Thanks, Winky Twinky! Loved your last post!

My Dear Nanodance... The honor is all mine.

Hey, Indigo! Thanks! Thought I'd spread the wealth some more and hopefully introduce you to some new bloggers.

Hello, Scotty! If things get dark, I can always call on you... my knight in shining armor!

Free bus pass too, possibly?

Mr. Glob said...

AW thanks cat lady!!! my first award not given to me by my mom! Your the best. :) said...

Helen... a free bus pass? How exciting... does that mean I can give up the clunk-mobile?

Mr. Glob... You're welcome! Happy scribbling! (Hope you're mom doesn't get all jealous that someone else is showering her boy with gifts!)
