Skip DeKades of Future Update is the latest to give me an award: The Kick-Ass Blogger Award.
I can now add this to the virtual mantel of virtual awards I’ve received thus far.
First, it was my sister from Boondock Ramblings AND Meg from Prefers Her Fantasy Life with the brilliantly-done Brillante Weblog Premio 2008 Award:
Then it was Meg again from Prefers Her Fantasy Life (this time with link) with the artfully-done Art de Pico Award:
Before this last award from FU, I received this tastefully-done award from Kirsten at The Soccer Mom Files that spoke to my inner geek:
Edited 10:50 p.m. Sept. 22: I realize now that award wasn’t for me. I was only given an honorable mention, but I’m still staking claim to it, because I loved Star Wars, even if I didn’t really like the Imperial Troopers and much preferred the Jedi Knights.
However, in anticipation of receiving future awards, I’m going to adapt the policy of The Nemesing One from I’m Sure I Don’t Know (which is on his sidebar):
Dear Award Giver:
I’d like to thank you and the Academy of Humor Bloggers International who believe I’m actually funny. I more than appreciate the sentiment, yet like The Nemesing One, I won’t be following the rules of the award.
As the great Bill Murray said in one of my favorite movies of his, Groundhog Day, well, next to Caddyshack and Stripes, etc.: “I’m not going to play by their rules anymore.” For that reason, I won’t be tagging anyone.
Instead, I encourage you to visit my blogroll or Humor-Blogs.com where you can find many bloggers there who deserve awards, from the No. 1 blog right down to the last one listed there.
I also won’t be writing up any long post like this one about the award. I’ll acknowledge the person who gave it to me and the award at the end of a post, then either add the award to my sidebar or to a page for the awards along with a link to the site of the blogger who sent it to me.
Thanks, again, Skip, for the award. I appreciate it. Right back at you. 🙂
