Paul and Kerry over at The Butler Way graciously bestowed The Honest Scrap award on me. I've seen it in the sidebars of other blogs and am delighted to be able to include it in mine - if I ever get a real computer back. Mercury is in retrograde once again which may or may not be the reason why every computer in my home died last week - except this ancient lap top which I am grateful to have, but I still prefer a desk top. Fortunately Buzz Kill was able to canabalize one to fix the other, but then it caught a virus (perhaps from Facebook) which caused an endless loop of malicious marketing from a spyware company in addition to IE opening spontaneously every five minutes or so to porn sites and Viagra ads. Very odd. It's in the repair shop now.
I could have sworn that The Honest Scrap award had something to do being brilliant since Liberality has one and she is certainly brilliant. Since one of the tasks that comes along with this award is passing it on to five other bloggers, and since I believe she writes brilliantly and passionately from the heart, I'll pass it on to her again.
One trouble with Facebook is that once you become friends with your blogging buddies, you don't go by their blogs as frequently anymore because you get these little updates all the time that give you the illusion that you're up to date with someone when you really haven't had more than a passing headline. These bloggers fall into that category:
Then there is Utah Savage, whom I consider my bloggy big sister - and not only because she's another crazy Gemini from Texas. She does write brilliantly and passionately from the heart whether she's presenting her well informed political views or coming to terms with events in her own life - from a friend's illness to one man's sadly scraggly ponytail.
Even though that's five, I'm giving The Honest Scrap award to Punch, too, simply because I like the captions under his photos.
The other part of this award is listing 10 random things about yourself - which I am totally not going to do at the moment (if ever). The Preacher arrives tomorrow and I need to run some errands since it's not everyday a character steps out of blogland and into real life in your living room - especially on the day of Velvet's judicial review at school.
Buzz Kill is tending to Velvet today and tomorrow. He is unaware that Velvet has, in fact, pledged eternal loyalty to the Hookahs - although the incident with the Douchers that led to Velvet's arrest had nothing to do with the process of pledging. That incident is partly why Velvet has been declared the Worst Pledge in the History of Hookah House. Another reason was the three sketchy, mad ghetto dudes who dropped by an alumni party at Hookah House saying they were friends of Velvet but who were actually looking to sell some Ecstasy. I don't know where Velvet met these fellows, but it's not the first time he attracted mad ghetto drug dealers.
One random thought that continues to percolate in my mind, however, is that the oil slick headed towards New Orleans could very well be a punishment from God on account of that damn Southern Republican Leadership Conference. I'm sure Pat Robertson would agree.
Really, though, I think it's more likely that Gaia has finally had enough of this bullshit and is raising her voice.
