BLINGO! Isn’t that what people yell out really loud when they’re playing that game with the cardboard thing that has numbers and letters on it and the guy with the machine in front of the room reaches into the machine and pulls out a number???? Huh???? OHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Sorry – I thought it was BLINGO……but it’s BINGO…….oh well. Got your attention though didn’t it?
Seriously, I’m excited because you know how I am about adding bling (aka awards) to my blog – and because I get excited that somebody thinks enough of me to pass one on to me. Well, I have a new one thanks to my dear friend the lovely Malamute Pup Misaki! She nominated me for the “Wonderful Team Member Readership Award” which I think is quite a wonderful honor.
I’m supposed to display the award (just have to have my assistant put it on my page for me along with a few others she’s a bit BEHIND doing that on!) and nominate 14 other blogs (or any number of blogs I wish to nominate) AND, last but far from least, I must complete this sentence:
“A good reader is…………………”
Well, I happen to think that’s a great thing to think about. What really IS a good reader? I think a good reader is many things. A good reader is someone who likes to learn new things, have a good time, have a good cry, have a good laugh, experience things they wouldn’t have a chance to in “real” life, and most of all, enjoy the excitement of escaping through the joy of reading to another time, place or circumstance they’d NEVER have other than through reading. Long sentence huh? HAHAHA Well, Mom (who is herself a writer) tends to do that. But she’s right.
Now for my nominees:
I hope you all enjoy receiving this award as much as I did! Now to get my assistant busy on posting the award for me…..I may have thumbs but there are some things I STILL need help with! 😉
Happy Friday (or Bling Day as I’m calling it today)
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
p.s. I also got another kinda funny award from my friend Doggy – it’s called the Ass Award (tee hee)…..”because everybody’s got one”….which technically IS true….it doesn’t come with qualifiers and you don’t pass it on, but if you want the bloggie icon for your OWN blog – you can copy it from me and display it on your page if you like! 🙂
