*gasping* times two…this just isn’t helping me at all and I don’t mean to sound ungrateful because I am. My Reader is beginning to nod affirmatively over the plethora of awards to be awarded, award “badges” (similar to Girl Scout achievements…however not to be sewn on to any body part…and Warned: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME caveat), award thanks from recipients and soon-to-be-receivers, plus all the resulting fallout to the “awarders” and the “awardees”…*gasp* *gasp* plus,  one *gulp*.

Girl Scout in uniform
Girl Scout in uniform (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I used to look like this without the glasses...but had waaaay more badges. This GS obviously is NOT badge-motivated. Just sayin'.......

Need I say more? Yes, apparently.

Rules are important. Necessary…yet…made to be dare I say broken?

My Reader is going to have to deal with…changed.

I’m Not Lost, Just Weird and jensinewall bestowed upon JOTS the KREATIVE BLOGGER [award] and the I’M IT [award].

Jots is thanking both NoZ and Jensine  posthumously…as opposed to anonomously…because *gasp* you are [true story] killing me softly…

Hour 1:    Read award. Shower off sweat. Read award again. Print out.
Hour 2:    Read award. Curse. Curse again. Sweat. Shower. Read again.
Hour 3:    Figure out rules. Curse. Throw away print-out of rules.
Hour 4:    Print again. Change rules. Curse. Make new rules.
Hour 5:    Break for lunch. Take much needed nap.
Hour 6:    Interesting answers (about me)to KREATIVE BLOGGER questions:
1.    Yes, most of the time.
2.    Never…but sometimes.
3.    All of the above so far.
4.    Voracious.
5.    Right is always left. Left is sometimes right. Depends.
6.    Perhaps.
7.    All of the above.
Hour 7:    I’M IT answer to favourite artist and why:
1.    Vermeer. Nothing extra is always more.
Hour 8-15:    I kid you not…linking, cutting, pasting, editing, drafting, re-writing, re-cutting, accidentally deleting, re-writing and….
lots and lots of  cursing. Over. The. Top. Cursing.

Hour 16-36: Post first draft. Repeat hours 8-15.

TODAY:     Post final copy.

P.S.            My Reader is hoping  JOTS gets black-listed for rule breaking and changing and other major infractions.
P.P.S.        Pleeeeze………………

  1. I don’t care if you break the rules,R. I am such a baddie like you! I’ve got some awards and I promised i would blog them and i forgot about the last three. I love the love but it’s so time consuming to link, post, et al and I am really lazy!!! I hope my fellow bloggers who gave them to me don’t hate my guts for being such a bum! I really did appreciate them and I am going to hell, when I start believing in it! 🙂


    1. Hey Girlfriend….have received thousands…. (well….a few) comments on how difficult it is to “play” the award game…which is what I think it is: THE ultimate game. I know what the premise is: pay it forward. Yes…all well and good…but life, one’s own, does have to take priority at some point. No hate mongering here…or there or anywhere…this (THIS) is such a small part of the real world. Yours. Mine. Your Reader. My Reader. Ask our lovely NoZ to send you his ANTI-AWARD Award……such a relief….bless his pointy head and squishy heart. Always sayin’ and doin’ the right (write) thing.


      1. I will drop him a line. And I know, I love this blogging but I have so little time and sometimes I just want to blabber. I got another award today so next week when i have some time off work I am going to post my own version of an award that people don’t have to pass on, kind of like a blogroll thingie. IF I get around to it…who knows what kind of distractions life will throw at me! It is very nice to get mentioned and I love it. So I’m gonna just say some really nice things about my present blog buds. And if they won’t have to reply!


      1. sorry only meant they are yours, well deserved and it really isn’t important if you stick to the rules. After all rules are there to guide us but also to be broken when needed 🙂


    1. NoZ…just don’t test the waters and do not, I repeat…do not…give me another award. As much as I love your big ears (they match mine) blacklisted is what you can give me for my birthday.
