The Splash Award

The Splash award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs. When you receive this award, you must:
1. Put the logo on your blog/post.
2. Nominate up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have been splashed by commenting on their blog.
5. Remember to link to the person from whom you received your Splash award.


Really, I am in something of a daze because of this. The Splash Award was bestowed upon me by the Divine Sarah of:

Cinema Splendor


who I have come to like very much lately. Especially now. Anyway, I'll fulfill the requirements by nominating the following people.

Bonnie of Peculiar Beauty: Her blog is hilarious and about a unique topic, bizarre beauty advice from the past (very bizarre). She is incredibly sarcastic and always, always entertaining. Her "Don't Kid Yourself Diet" is just what people need these days, myself included. I hope someday I can write like her.

C.K. Dexter Haven of Hollywood Dreamland: Probably he's already been given this award because he is such a good writer. And what a sense of humor! He makes fun of himself all the time, giving off a warm and likable vibe. If anyone deserves this award, he does.

Millie of Classic Forever: Maybe now she will forgive me for not telling her about my blog. But, she is definitely deserving of this award in her own right. This is not a sympathy nomination. Everything about Classic Forever--the "Picture of the Day" posts, the awesome background music, and naturally, her post about me :)--beg to be awarded this for what is probably either the second or third time. Millie has gotten this before, I know.

Sarah of Cinema Splendor: She may have just awarded me, but her funny blog is one of my favorites. It's quirky, random, and super entertaining. I only wish she would post more! No matter how often she may post in the future, I will probably always have that complaint.

Harly of Dreaming in Black and White: Few blogs are ever this stylized and personable. I love Harly's blog; I missed it terribly during Lent, to the point where people began to vaguely wonder if I wanted to become Catholic because I was asking so many questions about when it would end. And those foreign language phrases get me every time. Makes me wish I had more personality. Nobody's got flair like Harly!

Congratulations to all and thank you to Sarah!

Why, thank you very much! Especially the part about being "warm and likable"! I'll have to show that to people who hold a vastly different view of me. ;)

I hope you post with regularity becasue I like what you're doing here. Keep it up!

Thanks, Merriam! I really feel the sympathy in this one...;-D

Btw, just curious, but which post about you are you thanking my for? The true one? Or the "other" one?

In all seriousness...thanks! It means A LOT!
