I'd Like To Thank The Academy

I have been privileged to be given not one, not two, but THREE blog awards in the last few months. And I'm extremely grateful for the honor, even though I have procrastinated in accepting these prestigious awards. I blame the children. (Hey, I'm planning to use that excuse for a loooonnngg time!)

So without further ado, I hereby accept the Butterfly Award from Elisheva at Ragamuffin Studies (a very belated thank you!).

I was nominated way back in December and it's been on my To Do list since then, to accept this award and nominate 10 other cool bloggers. Nominees, feel free to decline, accept, procrastinate, ignore, or otherwise do what you will with this here award. :o)

Even though she doesn't post very often, Fire Queen at Wastebasket of My Subconscious is one of the coolest people I know. I've known her for, gasp! over 20 years. So. Not. Possible.

Other cool blogs:

Also, Such Lovely Freckles has nominated me (little ole me!) for TWO Awards: the Kreativ Blogger Award and the Smoking Typewriter Award. Thank you, darling!

Now I have to list 7 things I love, and nominate 7 more blogs for this Kreativ Blogger award.

  • I love Greek food.
  • I love speaking German even though I don't remember too much of it.
  • I love looking at commonplace things in an unusual way.
  • I love television shows by Joss Whedon.
  • I love logic puzzles.
  • I love Economics and Decision Theory (no, really!).
  • I love sleep, and I'd sure like to get some of that real soon.

For my Kreativ Blogger nominees, I'm going to choose some of my favorite food allergy bloggers, since we must all be very creative in selecting food and creating dishes that are safe for our food-allergic family members.

And last, but certainly not least, I am accepting the Smoking Typewriter Award. I agree with Such Lovely Freckles: this is one neat-o award!

I must now Google my name and we'll see what comes up. I'm guessing eleventy-million references to Jennifer Aniston. Let's find out, shall we? (I'll go with "Jenn" instead of "Jennifer.")

Jenn-Air! Hey, my grandpa had one of these built-in grill things from Jenn-Air. Cool.

A blog about a(nother) Jenn.

A(nother) Jenn's Twitter account.

Jenn's Journal, another Jenn blog.

Jenn Hoffman, a television personality.

Hmmm...neither Jennifer Aniston nor I made the first page. Oh well. I'm in good company, huh? Oh hey! I'm on Google's Page 6! Not too shabby, considering the popularity of the name Jennifer over the years.

Incidentally, do you know why I am Jenn with 2 Ns and not Jen with 1 N? Because my BFF from high school is also a Jennifer, and one day we decided to differentiate ourselves: she'd take Jen and I'd take Jenn, and then it would be super easy for everyone to tell the difference between us! :o) Yes, I've been cracking myself up for years now.

Right. Smoking Typewriter Nominations, for some very interesting, prolific bloggers:

All of the blogs I've nominated today are ones I try to check out on a semi-regular basis. I have something, often many things, in common with each blogger. So check them out, why don't ya?

And like I said, this is all for fun, so if you want to accept your award, then go right ahead. And if you don't, then I'll be crying myself to sleep on my huge pillow that's okay, too. :o)

There. I'm very proud of the procrastinating I've done today. Thank you, Academy! Good night!

Which reminds me of the song "27 Jennifers"

Such Lovely Freckles said...

She likes to speak German. Well, who knew. :)

Rational Jenn said...

I don't know that song, Jonathan. I do know a sing called "These are the Daves I Know.". I'll look up the Jennifer one.

SLF: Ja, aber meine Vokabeln ist kaputt. Oder ist es "Worter"? (can't do umlaut with my iPhone!)

Amy Dumas said...

Oh My, Goodness! Your post inspired me to google "Amy Dumas" for the first time. I had no idea there was a wrestler with my name! LOL There are pages and pages of pictures of her and blogs about her, hmmm, I guess all hope of little ol' me showing up on google is gone! :~)
