I Really Want To Not Suck....And World Peace

The Frog Queen over at Frog on the Pumpkin, passed on this award to me....two weeks ago...

Although I seem to be falling desperately short on my blogging duties, The Frog Queen is on top of her game! (And seemingly addicted to a game called "Plants vs Zombies.") Not only that, but she is one-half of the husband and wife team that brings you the Davis Graveyard every year. (Well - one third, if you count Halloween Cat.) This haunt is definitely on my list of places to see!

The award comes with rules, of course. Which I will break, of course.

The rules are:
1) Link back to the blog/blogger who nominated you.
2) Paste the picture of the award in your award post
3) Nominate bloggers you think deliver great comments to your blog
4) E-mail/post/tweet or do whatever you need to do to inform these bloggers they have been nominated for an award.

Okay - seriously. Do you know how many great bloggers comment on my little space on the web? Everyone who comments gets a virtual squeeze from me, because I am just so damn thrilled that anyone cares a lick about what I post.

I should first say, that I am one of those people who don't always have the "right words" when commenting on your blogs. Sometimes it's a hit. The rest of the time, not so much. Sometimes I worry that I come off a little passive or uninterested, or placating.

Please know, that if I say "have a great weekend" - what I really mean is: "you rock. I want nothing more for you than to have the best weekend OF YOUR LIFE and if you win the lottery, meet the man/woman of your dreams, and get a movie deal, it would still not be all that you deserve." Unfortunately, all I seem to get out sometimes is "have a great weekend."

Having said all that, I'm going to give a few shout outs. Merely for the sake of not being a consistently sucky award-recipient.

Mary over at Moontides is just the most wonderful woman. I feel a bit like she's my big sister or my fairy god-mother! She always has something wonderful to say (and several blogs to follow) and she is always positive, even when going through trials. She is a beautiful soul - do go spend some time with her!

And since I'm listing bloggers who I've somehow decided are actual family members, I will mention Ryan from Old Man Sutton who has far too many similar tastes not to be my brother. He is much more well-spoken than I am, and has a wonderfully insightful blog that you must read! Plus - he cross-stitches. Enough said.

Debra at She Who Seeks is witty and brilliant. And her lol-cat menageries that she puts together are too much fun. Just don't drink while looking at them - diet coke doesn't feel good coming out of your nose! She is also detailing a spectacular trip her and her Rare One took to Glastonbury. You must see the pics! (Plus, I must confess that I love her because she is from Winnipeg, and you must love people from Winnipeg as they are forced to live through 6 months of Winter, and they are still happy people!)

And a few others, who sprung to mind, and who I'd love to rave about, but am worried about the length of this post....

Halloween Spirit at Orange and Black.
Lyon at The Wandering Hearth.
Ange at Signed By Ange.
Jeanne at The Candy Corn Chronicles.
Jessica at Chronically Vintage.
Dede at Brightest Blessings Wiccans.

But seriously. I really, really love you all!

You rock. I want nothing more for you than to have the best weekend OF YOUR LIFE and if you win the lottery, meet the man/woman of your dreams, and get a movie deal, it would still not be all that you deserve.

I always feel like I fall a few hundred meters off of where I'd like to be on both posts and comments, It's good to know that I'm not the only one who actually means "You Rock!" when I comment.

halloween spirit said...

Thanks :) And you always have the right words! But I know what you mean. I often feel the same way when I comment.

Have a great weekend. (You rock. I want nothing more for you than to have the best weekend OF YOUR LIFE and if you win the lottery, meet the man/woman of your dreams, and get a movie deal, it would still not be all that you deserve.)


Ryan Sutton said...

Awww, thank you Rue! *gives you brotherly noogies* And for the record, I always appreciate your comments as well. I'll totally adopt you as my sister. ;) *big hugs*

Jeanne said...

Congrats on the award, Rue! It is well deserved. I think your comments are totally AWESOME!!!

Oh Rue...You're such a sweetie to mention me. I really feel that my comments are sometimes lacking ... I can't always put my feelings into words. But I'm working on it!

{{BIG HUGS!!}}

And Have a totally awesome weekend!! :0)

Ange said...

Oh Rue - I'm SPEECHLESS ;-) Bisous and you are too lovely for mentioning me in there... but then, i said I was speechless!!

Cora said...

I think we've all been in the same boat of feeling like we don't express exactly what we really want to say, but I think your post said it very well :)

Rue, I don't know what say. Your words have floored me, and for once, I am absolutely speechless. Yours is one of the first blogs I began following and I treasure the day that I found you. Thanks for being my little sister.

Domestic Witch said...

Wow, what a different and cool award! Congrats!!

Dede said...

Congratulations on your award Rue, you so deserve this one! Your comments are always great! You are far from a slacker on your blog or anything else for that matter.

Thank you for the mention, you are so sweet!


Michelle said...

Congrats!! Oh I so know what you mean by breaking rules and such. I have been a terrible blogger lately. I have so many things going on at once I need to learn to slow down! Hope you're move is complete and you can relax. I am laying in bed with your book next to me. I have been taking it one stone at a time. Lol! I am so loving this book!!!
