I'd like to thank the Academy ...

Actually, I'd like to thank my fellow bloggers. I am truly honored to have been given this "E for Excellent" Award by blogger BAC over at Yikes! (UPDATE: Yowza! I just found out that Dave over at The Galloping Beaver also passed this one to me — now I'm really blushing!) It means a lot to me, because I'm very much a newbie — I haven't even been doing this a year yet. I still can't believe anyone comes back, much less think it merits the "E" word. "You like me! You really like me!"

But the coolest thing about this award is that "once a blog receives it, that blog must then pay it forward to ten other worthy blogs, thus spreading the accolades around blogtopia and yes, we coined that phrase." (from Skippy the Bush Kangaroo)

And so, like everyone else who has been given this charge, I say "Just ten?!" But here are ten blogs that I enjoy immensely, who deserve this "excellent" link love (in no particular order):

Mauigirl's Meanderings


Suburban Lesbian Housewife

The Quaker Agitator

Political Voices of Women

Unrepentant Old Hippie

Bootstrapping Andrew Sullivan

Princess Sparkle Pony

Up in Alaska

Mid-Life Clarity

Thank you so much Sue. It's an honor that you have acknowledged my blog. :-)

Mauigirl said...

Sue, thanks so much for this award! I'm blushing!

I will have to think hard about which ten I'll pass it on to!

Dave said...

Well... all I can say is... WELL DONE!

Now, I passed one on to you too, so I suppose, being as we all agree... perhaps old Dave here can push out a few more from the blogroll.

Keep up the great work. We love ya!

Catherine, I know how much work must go into putting together your blog -- thank you!

Mauigirl, I've been reading your blog for a long time, and have also appreciated your comments here. When we disagree on Clinton vs. Obama, I value your opinion and intelligent argument on his behalf. Keep workin' on me....

Dave, what can I say! I am thrilled that you also passed this one on to me. I check in with The Galloping Beaver every day, so I really appreciate your listing my blog.

I'm not joking when I say that I've been amazed that anyone reads this blog. Well, that anyone comes back to read this blog! Thank you!

Thanks, Sue J, and I also appreciate your opinions on Hillary. It is so important that people who are on the same side on the issues should be able to have reasonable, intelligent conversations about these candidacies!

Intelligence and reason do seem to be in somewhat short supply this campaign season, don't they?
