I’ve been nominated for the 7×7 award! Rather than setting out a list of the rules, which can be found here, I just worked them into the post. As I recall, the last time I was nominated for a blog award, I lamented the fact that I wouldn’t get to walk down the virtual red carpet in my virtual couture. Well, this time I’m making my own virtual red carpet to strut down! Major advantage to virtual couture: you don’t have to starve yourself to fit into it. Also, no hairspray, and you can wear flats. So here we go:
To present our next award, we have Jessica Alba and, of course, Johnny Depp! Catch them in their latest movies, Ms. Alba in I Know I’ve Got More Talent Than This and Mr. Depp in Whatever Tim Burton Is Making This Time.
JA: Thanks so much. It’s a pleasure to be able to present this award to the Little Blind Girl. Well-known for such posts as Why I Like the World Fuzzy, her most beautiful piece, and LBG’s Rules to Live By, her most helpful piece, the Little Blind Girl stumbles through this world bewildered but full of humor about the obstacles she encounters–something that was the subject of her most underrated post, and one of the ones with an audio version, Little Blind Red Riding Hood.
JD: And of course, there is her most popular piece, Pick Up Lines by Johnny Depp. Who can forget me fingering a turtleneck and saying, See this material? It’s boyfriend material. But seriously, folks, check out her most prideworthy piece, Mad Libs and Whistling Marmosets. You’ll take something different away from it every time.
JA: And don’t forget her most surprisingly successful piece, Oh I’m Gonna Hurt Some Feelings, All Right. Quite a few hurt feelings reports submitted after that one! But I’m most fond of her most controversial piece, True or False? I’m still wondering if she has a tattoo!
JD: You may not know this about LBG, as I like to call her, but she can put on eyeliner entirely by touch, a skill she keeps trying to practice on me. Kind readers and gentle followers, without further ado, the Little Blind Girl!
(Little Blind Girl walks out, occasionally tripping over wires, steps, and people)
LBG: Oh, my gosh, what an honor! I just want to thank Lori Franks from Sunny Side Up for nominating me for this award. Her blog is such an inspiration to me. I know I can always turn to her for a smile. I want to thank my Sainted Mother and my Darling Dad for all the blog lessons in my childhood, and Big Sis for beating up all the mean commenters. This sort of honor really belongs to more than just me, so I want to nominate these blogs, because they deserve this award just as much as–oh, let’s be honest, more than I do!
http://dazzlemethis.wordpress.com, for going chapter by chapter through the books in the Twilight series to give us all a hilarious warning of what’s in store. Mega-props for not getting discouraged in the midsection of New Moon, in which Bella is the most pathetic, whiny mess I’ve ever encountered in literature.
http://lifeisabowlofkibble.wordpress.com, for a daily glimpse into a loving, well-grounded, and excellently photographed family life. She’s the cool Mom you loved to visit when your friends still lived at home.
http://epa82.wordpress.com. Expectant mother meets snarky philosopher meets super-cool BFF. You don’t need to be all into pregnancy blogs to enjoy her blogservations. Hey, did I just coin a word?
http://becomingcliche.wordpress.com, who wrote the niftiest poem-blog about Christmas I’ve ever read. Actually, it’s the only one I’ve ever read. And it’s awesome! Also the funniest reaction to being Freshly Pressed that I’ve come across. Check it out.
http://rosaleengallagher.wordpress.com, a.k.a. Mixed Gems, for your necessary dose of beauty, fashion, culture, and lifestyle. You will become more beautiful, more fashionable, and more cultured just by reading her blog, I promise.
http://awkwardeldon.com. I just love him. He’s hilarious, sweet, hilarious, awkward, and hilarious. Reading his blog makes me feel all warm and happy, and occasionally nervous about dogs.
And of course, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
