Only Eight?

I won some major recognition the other day, from literary figure Cormac Brown. Cormac is one of the people out there in the blog world who I've emailed back and forth with about a few things and hope I can meet one of these days. He shares my love of all things noir, but then cranks it up a notch by being a pretty kick ass crime writer himself. He's good at the twist ending.

Turns out I'm considered to have a "well-written and amusing" blog. I'm a little suspicious of my nomination, since I am, in fact, totally interested in self-aggrandizement. Here's the deal with this meme-a-rino:
“These bloggers are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
"Deliver this award to eight bloggers..." Only EIGHT? Oh well. Some of the people I'd tag have already been tagged, but I'll do the best I can.

Here goes:

Melinda June

Coaster Punchman
Tenacious S
Johnny Yen
Doctor Monkey Von Monkerstein
MnMom of Happy to be from Iowa

Everyone who participates gets this fabulous award:


Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Thanks for the award. You are too kind.

Johnny Yen said...

Oh my! An award from Bubs that was inspired my Cormac Brown? How can I resist! Thank you!

Mnmom said...

WOW! Thank you! I am seriously honored. I also received this from themom, so I just did my eight. Thanks again!

Coaster Punchman said...

Ok Bubs, I'll publish this in May 2011. Ha! Thanks!

Tenacious S said...

Thanks! I'm doubly lucky because I really did meet friends here.

Outstanding choices, Bubs, though Dr. Monk is threatening to take away Splotchy's record of posts-per-day within a week.
