I got an award this weekend from Heinous over at Irregularly Periodic Ruminations. How cool is that?! As I understand it, I have to now pass it on to 5 other blogs I am hooked on. That's hard, as there are a bunch I read regularly. Heinous would have actually been at the top of my list, but I don't know that he wants another pink award, so maybe he'll just settle for the love ;). OK... let's see... (and sorry, but I can't figure out how to provide a link to their blogs from here... Heinous... HELP!)

I'm picking Haute.Pocket, definitely. I love her. She is so very cool with just a hint of charming dorkiness ;). I'd like to think I was like her when I was her age (God, that makes me sound old) but I suspect I was more 'very dorky with just hint of cool'. Sigh.

Second, I'm going with Deutlich over at Speak On It. Another 'youngster', I love how passionate she is about her beliefs and how beautifully she expresses them. She is wise beyond her years and I love reading her stuff.

Third is my pal Protege over at Life, Work, and Pleasure. Her posts are so thoughtful and I love the way she thinks. Plus, I think she is possibly my twin, separated at birth.

Fourth is Lee over at A Curate's Egg. Lee is not the award type, I'm sure, but I don't care... he's gettin' it anyway. His was the first blog I got hooked on after I started mine and I check in on him every day. He's very cool for an old guy ;).

Last, hmmmm... this is hard! There were a bunch I could pick from but I'm going with Andy at Wild ARS Chase. He's a riot and too cute for words. If I was 20 years younger, I'd totally have a crush on him.

So there you have it. And thanks again, Heinous (and thanks for the tech support yesterday, too!).


Andy said...

You can still have a crush on me. I'll allow it (although your husband and my girlfriend might not). Thanks for the award. I don't think I've ever been too cute for words before, although I have been too weird/disturbing/slightly off-putting for words before.

Diane said...

Well, my husband is living with someone else now, so I doubt he'd care ;)

Protege said...

Thank you Diane for the award, I am sending you one back! I am so VERY honored and I truly feel the same. Sniff, you made me cry now.;)))

Deutlich said...

Diane! I am so so so flattered.

Thank you! Today was sucking crusty toes but that just put a huge smile on my face.

Thank you!

Solei said...

congrats on your award!
you deserve it!

Heinous said...

I'll settle for the love any day. Oh, look. New blogs to stalk.

hautepocket said...

Aww! You're too sweet. I'm flattered that you find me "cool," but I must say that I'm probably far more dorky. :) Thanks for the award!

(And p.s. I hope I'm HALF as good of a mother someday as you seem to be!)

hautepocket said...

P.S. I almost forgot: Congrats on YOUR award!

Pauline said...

Found you via Curate's Egg and enjoyed my visit. Thanks for pointing me to some new sites as well!

Lee said...

You're a darling, Diane. Thank you.

You picked me right that I am not the award type but I am happy that you chose me. Not quite so sure about the "He's very cool for an old guy" comment though! (Cheeky possum!).

Diane said...

Zuz - sorry to make you cry... again ;)

Deutlich - glad your day stopped sucking crusty toes (blech!) because of me! :)

Soleil - Thanks!

Heinous - big love, baby! ;)

HP - thanks so much... that's one of the nicest things anyone's said to me (though you might take it back if you met my kid ;)

Pauline - nice to meet ya :)

Lee - the darling thing? Back at'cha. The cheeky possum thing? Hmmmm... you couldn't have picked a cuter rodent?

Lee said...

The Australian possum is a marsupial. Does that help?
