I got an award!

It's a major award! I am SO SO SO SO SO honored to receive this award. Touched and honored and flattered. Wow. You can find my acceptance speech here. It's one of the funniest threads and comments I've read in a while. And yet, that is the norm at bythelbs' blog. And I love it.

I'm just going to copy her format, because it screams of awesomeness. And because she's just so darn cool. And because I love the friends I know through blogging. And because she has now sent me TWO, count 'em, TWO packages in the mail. One time she sent me movies just because I was looking for some good ones. And then I won a consolation prize for her Office giveaway. She's awesome. Have I mentioned her awesomeness yet? She's awesome.

An award! From lbs! Behold the oddness!

This blog invests and believes, the proximity. [meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' -being close through proxy]. They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut, or that they propagate? Then let’s try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text.

And if that's not the coolest Babelfish translation ever, I don't know what is. And that's just another reason I love this award.

I, too, do not wish to cut the bows of proximity to do friendship to show the marvels and that are propogated so I am extending this award to:

Shawn and Rebecca, Lena, D'Arcy, Axel and Terah, Kara, Emily L., Jared and Rachelle, Happy Wife Happy Life, Sierra, Toni

I know. That's 10 people, not 8. I can do that. I'm all-powerful because of my major award.

And because of the power bequeathed to me by this glorious award, I also hereby extend this award to my sisters-in-law and cousins-in-law . . . Jenny, Emily, Jessica, Lindsay, April, Jill, Stacy, and Kim! :) (Feeling to lazy too link to their blogs, but they know who they are).

I'm going to go ahead and copy (quote) lbs again here (imitation is the highest form of flattery, so she should be quite flattered by now--plus she's so awesome):

And, my friends, please do not in any way feel obligated to continue the chain. I promise not to come to your blog and check to see if you have posted about it or anything. Well, I suppose since I read all of your blogs I will know if you have posted about it, but I will be in no way offended should you choose to revel in the glory of this award privately.

And rather than doing the 7 random things meme, I will simply refer you to her post yet again because it is, in case you missed it the first time, SO DANG FUNNY. And awesome.

Aw gee, Boquinha, now I feel like I've won an award! And really, I have--the award of your friendship. Right back atchya, baby!

April (Thorup) Oaks said...

I got an award? Wahoo! I too am lost on what is so funny or what the award is about. ha ha. What's wrong with me?

Boquinha said...

Heheheh. You're welcome. And now you get not only an award, but your very own explanation of benefits! Poor Emily thought it was because she was wasted when in fact, it really just did NOT make sense--ah the gloriousness of it!

Lbs, awwww, thank you. :)

April, that's so funny. It was so weird. It helps to see a normal award first. Then this odd one makes more sense (well, sort of). Making sense is a relative phrase here . . . :P

I love receiving awards. I don't think I've received one since my fourth-grade field day so I've been waiting a long time for this one. I just read your next post as well, so thanks for the little explanation...the award had me chuckling from the beginning in a head-shaking kind of way. I think you're cool too.

Boquinha said...

Ah, 4th Grade Field Day. Glad to make you chuckle and I think you're pretty cool, too. :)
