>It’s Talk Like A Three-Year-Old Day!

January 8, 2009

> Okay, I’m with Luanne at A Bookworm’s World, who gave me this award, about the wording. She says: “I do have this mad urge to try and change the wording…I’ve ever known, I ever knew … I wonder where this originated?!” But I’m very pleased she gave it to me. I didn’t know she read my blog!

Here are the rules for passing it on:
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Award up to ten other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message for your awardees on their blogs.

Having dutifully listed the rules, I’m now passing it on to some very contrary and entertaining people who don’t always like to follow rules. So I hereby absolve each one of you from following the rules about passing it on. Hug it to yourself or curl your lip at the wording, whatever.

Harriet the Spy: because she’s interesting and always has something new to say.
Life in Scribbletown: because she’s a talented lip-curler and is passing it on to her kids.
Bookshelves of Doom: because my day is not complete without visiting her blog.
Devourer of Books: because she reads things I’ve haven’t heard of yet.
Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin’?: because she’s entertaining, and also very nice.
Interactive Reader: because she finds things that I need to see.
Maw Books Blog: because she’s enthusiastic and helpful and reads good stuff.
Pages Turned: because she reviews obscure titles and goes her own way.
Sophisticated Dorkiness: because she’s organizing the blog improvement project.
Lessons From the Tortoise: because she loves books, and is passing it on, not just to her kids, but to the kids of others.
And to make sure I break the rules myself, here’s an eleventh person, who has passed this award on, but hasn’t gotten it herself yet as far as I can tell, an amazing oversight.
J. Kaye’s Book Blog: because she posts more than once a day, and it’s always fun to visit.

    >Why, thank you! I do try to follow rules but I seem to be constitutionally unable to do so. Also, yeah, that wording is wrong. Why is it so wrong? Couldn’t someone have caught that before the icon “went to press”?

    >Thank you! I’m thrilled. I haven’t received (please note I didn’t say “gotten” so I won’t sound quite as much like a three-year-old)a blogging award in a. long. time (because I’ve been such a bad blogger for such a long time). I will aspire to live up to the award and read more obscure books.

    >Thanks for the great (though oddly worded) award! I feel that I’m in very good company…

    >Thanks! You rock! I was watching this award go around and thinking, “No one likes my blog.” At least one person likes it. 😀

    >Trish, Yes, I do really like your blog. I do. (And I also kind of love how watching this award go around could inspire the 3-year-old inside any of us to think “no one likes my blog”!)
