Doctor Von Monkerstein, of Monkey Muck, Cover Me, Dr. Monkey's Retro Blog, Panel World and Book Monkey 88 has declared I am a Ray of Sunshine. It must be true because he's an observant, insightful fellow - not simply one of those cranks with multiple blogs. Most of those blogs are all about images and illustrations where he demonstrates that he's talented with a caption. At Book Monkey 88, you'll find Used, Rare and Out of Print books for sale.
I discovered he's bestowed this award on me yesterday when my statcounter showed a familiar referring link: http://monkeymucker.blogspot.com/. When somebody's blog appears as a referring link a few times in the same afternoon, it generally indicates that something's up. Something, indeed, since Dr. Von Monkerstein is not a bit sunny. Sarcastic, Caustic, Twisted and/or Funny - but Sunny isn't an adjective that springs to mind regarding the doctor.
The thing I like best about his version of this award is that he has abandoned all the strings that may or may not have ever been attached and declared the recipients can do what they like regarding said award. I am, therefore, passing it on to a few bloggers who consistently lift my spirits when I've gotten bogged down in The Bullshit. These individuals have a perspective on Life, The Universe and Everything that consistently entertains, encourages or sends the reader off on a tangent s/he may not have ever considered were it not for the opinion and analysis offered by said individual in blog posts and comments -- kind of like a virtual drinking buddy whom I'm always glad to find here at Happy Hour in the Blogland Bar & Grill.
As usual with awards going from bloggers to bloggers, this one could have gone out to any and every blog on the blogroll in my sidebar, but it is often said that Eight is Enough. I do want to specially mention Mad Priest, though, because of the time he put me on his prayer list. As a general rule, I'm totally not into prayer lists, but I remain astonished and significantly touched that people all over the world took a moment to say, "Thank God for Trish." Now that's a Ray of Sunshine - even if, in Reality, there is No God at all.
