Spreadin' It Like Peanut Butter...

I got home from my weekend away to more bloggy love... and it's my turn again to spread it around. This is a friendship award from Heinous, one of my favorite bloggy people in all of Blogland. He keeps giving me awards that I'd give to him... if he hadn't given them to me first. Anyhoo... here's what they (and I'm not sure who 'they' are exactly) say about this one...

This is the Proximidade Award, which celebrates bloggy friendships. It means, "This blog invests and believes in 'proximity' [meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' - being close through proxy]." I have to pass it on to 8 bloggers I consider friends... easy peasy. Actually, not so easy, as I can ONLY pass it on to 8 people.

First let me say that I would give this award to my friend Mel, but she's been my friend since before the Internet was invented, and she'll be my friend long after I'm too old to type, so I'm going to pass it on to people I've met through blogging. I wish I could give it to more than 8, as this list was hard to narrow. But these bloggers are all extra special to me and I'd give my right arm if just one of them lived close enough to hang out in person.

Protege - I WILL get to Denmark in the next year to hang out with her and drink some wine!
Heather, who is going to be my new roommate soon ;).
Kendall, a swan in duck's clothing.
Jane!... love her and her drippy nose ;).
Ronda, who WILL live down the road one day... and not a day too soon!
Shanna, who is cool, even if she can't remember her kids' names ;).
Hebba... love her attitude toward life!
Jen, who shares my dog hair issues and sense of sarcasm :).

You guys have to pass it on now...

I just put a button on my flair board on Facebook that says "We'll be the old ladies causing trouble in the nursing homes" with you and me in mind, my deary! By then, we'll be able to post to our blogs using just our minds, no keyboard or typing needed!

Crap - I just hit one of the things on your pet peeve list for real! Sorry... I'll explain in an e-mail.

Okay...back to reading...I have to catch up on my reading!
Thanks and you are so "Proxy" too!

Thank you! It amazes me at how much I've come to care about people I've never met in real life.

I like your description of me, I think I have an idea for a header with in mind.

I'll pass it on sometime tomorrow. I promise.

Heinous said...

You deserve them all.

Hey, why does your post title make me feel just a little dirty?

Protege said...

Thank you so much Diane, you know this goes both ways. And you better keep that promise to come and visit, I will hold you to it.;)))

Heather said...

Thanks Diane!! I can't wait til we're roomies. You won't mind the fact that my dog acts like he's on crack, right? :)
