Single-handedly Killing Awards

It's not that I'm not honored to win awards, mind you. It's just that I suck at moving them along or, possibly worse, acknowledging here that I've received them. Here's a wrap-up of awards I've received "lately." [Thank God I save the posts in Bloglines or I'd be hard-pressed to ever put them up.]

From 3 Giraffes, an I Love Your Blog! award from October 25.

From Tara at If Mom Says Okay, an Octamom award, which I am so not doing the right way here but I'm gonna mention it anyway, on November 23.

From Happy Tiler, a Blog Love award on December 15.

The lovely Sian from Here Be Dragons awarded me a Kreativ Blogger badge of honor on January 9.

From Florinda and her The 3 R's: Reading, 'Riting and Randomness, a Premio Dardos (the Darts Prize) award from January 13.

From It's a Schmitty Life, a Lemonade award on January 17.

Even more recently, from "Sunshine" of Writing is Like..., two awards, a Lemonade award on January 28 and another Premeo Dardos on February 12.

Okay, so I've done my duty to acknowledge and thank everyone publicly. [Nods head vigorously in acknowledgement and then puts hands together prayer-like and mouths "Thank you."] I do appreciate your thinking of me. Sorry I'm just not the type to pass awards on. Or memes for that matter. It is programmed within me to single-handedly kill all awards and memes. Clearly, I'm a failure at that.

:D This post made me smile. Honestly, I have a bit of a time keeping up with things, as well. I still have to do a meme I was tagged for probably a week ago. Not to mention two movie reviews that I voluntarily do. I don't even remember when I watched the movies! I just post them when I get to them (in some cases, when I remember). Anyway, Patois, you're in good company--and keep up the good work!

You done good! I bad about these too. I know I've missed someone along the way. And I feel guilty about not tagging everyone on my blogroll or in my reader cuz I don't want anyone to feel left out.

You deserve the kudos, kiddo. Of course, I thought I was some kind of talent scout with an incredible ability to recognize what others could not. Now it's clear I'm just one fan among many, each one mesmerized by your blogalicious bootay. And each one smart enough to recognize quality and value when we read it. Can you feel the love?

You are so much better than me. Not only do I not pass on the awards, I don't even publicly acknowledge them on my blog!

Congrats on your well deserved bling!
