It all started here...and thanks to Crushed By Ingsoc...I have been given my first award...ever! This award is for, "people that were exceptionally adept at creating relationships with other bloggers by making an effort to be part of a conversation, as opposed to a monologue. These bloggers have all worked hard to build a reputation for themselves by commenting on other blogs, participating in blogging communities, replying to comments left on their blog and overall just doing their part to interact with other bloggers."
So, I looked up the definition of schmooze, because, honestly I wasn't sure...I thought perhaps it was similar to a brown noser or an ass kisser, but no...it means to chat idly, gossip, chatter, or chat casually and in a friendly way. Much better than brown noser!
I am truly honored to get this award, well, I would be honored to get any award...even if it was the "Most Abnoxious Blogger Award" or the "The Girl That Doesn't Shut Up Award". I am probably going to do this all wrong...but give me a break...I'm a fricking virgin here!
I am now supposed to give this award out to five other very deserving Schmoozer's! My goal in giving these awards out is to give them to people who are award virgins...I want to pop some cherries here people! I think that there are a ton of you out there that deserve this, and as I was going through my links trying to decide...it was hard (like right after a hot lap dance kind of hard)!
So here are my five...in alphabetical order!
1st - Yoda: You are so busy with school, new job and moving, but you still make time to post, comment and reply to all your comments. You are so funny and always manage to make me laugh! You are dedicated to your blog group and I respect that...you don't let it get so big that you can't keep up your close relationships with each person!
2nd - Raffi: You are so deep, and you truly inspire with your "flows", but you are a complete goof sometimes and I love it! I see you all over and you frequent blogs of all different venues. I love how you can go from deep thinking to tits and ass in an instant!
3rd - Christie: We are pretty new to each other, but I loved you instantly! You are great at thinking outside the box in your comments and always have the angle that I have forgotten. I always look forward to your comments and your posts are hilarious! Like my sister from another mister!
4th - Captain Corky: You are amazing at keeping a conversation going in comments, you are a new dad, but still so dedicated to your blog. You check out new blogs and stay true to your old blog buddies too. You are amazingly good at opening up opinion floodgates and being respectful and accepting.
5th - Mighty Dyckerson: You are crude and obnoxious, but I love you...you make a community out of your blog and your readers! We are all sucked in with your hilarious wit and your persistence of you trying to get into every female readers pants! You are a comment king!
*** So, if any of you five aren't virgins...I am going to feel tricked and taken advantage of tomorrow morning!I also, got a second award today! So I guess not only am I not an Award Virgin anymore, but I have become the Award Whore! This award came from Mike...who thinks that I am an Inspirational Blogger! His reason behind giving me the award is, "Because she is the coolest blogger ever!" Well thanks, that was a great ego boost! I am really not very good at this giving out awards thing, because, like Mike, I find everyone inspiring in one way or another! I can't just pick and choose between you all! You all have a special place in my heart! You are all so different that it's hard to pick a few!
