People get down. People get irrational thoughts when they are down. People either break, or get through it. This weekend I thought a lot about two people. Tracy Fulks and Wayne. They both have overcome some things that are pretty much equivalent to that asteroid Bruce Willis had to blow up. I will stay firm in my belief that this is why the world didn’t end. Owe you one, Bruce. Anyway, I just wanted to recognize that there are some strong people around here. I look up to those people. Thinking about their battles and triumphs stops me when I begin to sulk over the petty.
Wayne gave me two awards recently which really boosted me, but I haven’t been able to participate in keeping those going. I think I made a subconscious decision not to participate in those anymore simply because I have too much already planned to work on. I feel a bit bad about this.
So here is what I am going to do. I am giving Wayne and Tracey my own personal award. The Fly Blog Award (holiday style). I am also giving it to Jillian, because she is one of the most supportive bloggers ever, and I know she will appreciate it. Basically, you can do whatever you want with the blabel. Use it as media in a post, put it on your sidebar, laugh at it and walk away, whatever. But, those are my own real long johns in the background, so treat them with care. Don’t worry, you don’t have to kiss anyone’s crotch either. Unless you want to…
You can pass it on or not. If you chose to pass it along, there are no award rules except that you can only pass it to one person that embodies your definition of fly. Give that person the spotlight they deserve. You don’t have to answer any questions, thank me personally on your blog, or link back to me.
I originally wanted to offer up the award to everyone I follow, but I follow something like 150 blogs. It wasn’t practical to name you all in a blog post, but I want you to know that every one of those blogs offers something slightly different but equally important to me. I may not read and comment as much as I used to, but I want you all to know I am still here reading every chance I get, even if I do not comment or like. I also have dreams about you, so that should make up for it.
Like the dream I had last night where Emily showed up and had superpowers. I know, my brain is a terrific place to be.
Currently, I am at my parents home for the holidays. I just spent half an hour trying to garner the proper materials to make some coffee. Then, I realized my mother only owns decaffeinated coffee. That does about as much good as taking a bath in old bath water. It’s fun here.
Now, here are the winning comments from this week. Finally:
Genericmessage on The End.
Be on the lookout for something extra special this New Years involving your two favorite gals. Me and La La, duh. I hope you all have peaceful holidays full of caffeinated coffee and appropriate use of mistletoe.
