My friends Red and Thomma Lyn both handed me the Blogging Star Award recently. Here’s a picture; ain’t it purty?

The Blogging Star Award was created by Barb at Skittles’ Place. Of the Blogging Star Award, Barb says:

This award is for bloggers who shine their light throughout the Blogosphere. Some do it with humor, others with creativity, and others with their kind and thoughtful natures. We all know more than a few of them so why not give them some recognition?

Here’s what to do if you receive this:

* Proudly display it on your blog along with a link to who gave it to you.
* Mention that it originated here at Skittles’ Place so I can follow its journey.
* Pass it on to any blogger(s) you think should have it.

Well. Let’s see. Who makes me all warm and fuzzy when I see them in my reader? Well… Rhian is the obvious choice ’cause she’s been the … oh, I can’t say butt so maybe the willing victim of a Trevor prank is putting it a bit better. But Rhian’s more rebellious than I am, and she tends to follow directions worse than I do.

Maybe Lisa. You can call her the Nekkid Man woman ’cause that’s what her Thursday Thirteens are all about. And have you seen some of the wild things she digs up to share? Truly cool.

And definitely PJ at The Urban Recluse. She’s handed me plenty of awards, and has definitely earned this one. I miss Sunday Sauce, though!

Don’t forget Robin, the inspiration behind the ShapeShifter fan fiction that’s been cropping up around the blogosphere. She’s been on a total tear lately, writing really beautiful essays, each one better than the last.

So there you go. Some pretty darn deserving ladies, and not easy choices among all you guys. I don’t know how I’ve managed to do it, except to say that like attracts like, and I’m damn proud to know (and read) all of you.

I’d also like to end this post by saying I’d drafted it a good two weeks ago and am just now having the proper time to post it so it gets noticed and its proper due. If any of you can please cancel the soap opera I’m currently starring in, I’d much appreciate it!

    You sweet lady! You’ve definitely cheered me up – thanks so much. And I’ll think about resurrecting the Sunday Sauce, why don’t you nominate some sexy folk for me?

    Congratulations my friend, very richly deserved, and thank you both for the award and for your kind words. They mean a lot coming from you.BR/BR/Of course, with my own soap opera apparently in sweeps week right now your readers will have to dig back a few posts to find the essays you mentioned. Mostly venting and self-recrimination this week.
