Awards Season Is My Favorite Time Of The Year

I got an award! Yea! Thank you, you Attentive Aphorist!

TheMom is one very smart and generous blogger. And she's a good mom as well, just ask me. If you don't believe me ask her, her daughter, son, and TheGrandkids, they will confirm my assertion. Because I never make assertions I can't back up as absolute fact, unless it's just my opinion. But even then you'll have to prove to me I'm wrong because, well, just because.

When I became a blogger I had no idea what a blog was. It had to be explained to me several times before I got the concept. At first I only posted essays about things that pissed me off, like, lets say Barbie for instance. Man I hate that bitch. That doll is responsible for everything that's wrong with us, from anorexia to pornography, from breast implants to the plastic surgery of the pussy, or a pussy tuneup, or whatever you want to call turning a well-used pussy into something resembling the pussy of a twelve year old. Barbie is responsible for Reality TV, and the lowered IQ of the general population. On no, now I'm really wound up and could just go on an enormous rant, but that's not what we're here to do. No, we're here to thank TheMom and pass the love along. We're here to bless the ones who got us started and sent us out into the world to rant and rave as we feel we must about the things that are important to us.

The ones who got me started are a young couple who live in New York and were visiting. They insisted that the blog was just the thing I needed and the world needed another ranting, raving lunatic with a bad attitude and the hutzpah to speak her mind. Well, world, what do you think now. Now I even twitter. Take that all you smartasses who never thought I had it in me. Actually I'd have none of these outlets without the computing expertise I receive from my blogmate Sitenoise, my favorite reviewer of off beat movies. So thanks for the start, Rachel and David. And thanks for the help Phillip. Without the three of you there would be no Utah Savage. Bless you my children for getting me going. Without you I'd still be sitting here scribbling on paper.

I hereby bestow this lovely award on:
Susan at Phantsythat
Boarder Explorer
Wee Mousie's Cinema Burlesque
Non, Je Ne Regrette Rienes

There are so many others who I'd love to give this award to, but knowing how beloved they are, I'm sure this award will make it's way to them all.

Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.

Congratulations,Utah, a well deserved award. Thanks to David and Rachel for bring you to us.

Utah Savage said...

AirmanMom, thank you for the congrats. You should drop by more often. I love it when you comment.

Belette, my dear, I almost gave this award to you, but like I said, I know you're going to get it from someone else and probably someone I passed it to.

Sometimes these awards are "fun and games," but this one marks--for me--a profound moment. Humble and sincere thanks, Utah, for this gift. It certainly means more to me than I can express.

Utah Savage said...

BE it is my pleasure entirely.

themom said...

Thank you for the kind words. I consider you one of my best friends these days. Amazing - how we can relate to people through our words...and sometimes our rants. Like I've said before, I'm working on eccentric...and I am gaining ground fast.

I couldn't agree with you more about Barbie's responsibility in luring us down the path to Hell. I was lucky enough to have some old German dolls with ceramic heads and soft bodies who did me no harm at all. I used to make their clothes even before being allowed needle, thread and, God forbid, scissors.

Thanks so much for giving me the award. It's a beauty which deserves some thought.

The Young Swell said...

As I believe you already know, awards ARE NOT my thing.

I can always identify half a dozen who deserve any award more than I do. Also, I dislike slighting anyone who is busily doing good work, by not giving them an award that is in my power to bestow, in favor of one of their competitors.

But, handing out awards to everyone, so that no one is slighted, is also nonsense.

I just don’t have the right temperament to enjoy awards, I suppose.

Any way, er, thanks.

It will take a couple of days to put my reply together, as my next two days will be spent, for the most part, in hospital clinics and doctor’s offices having tests, etc.

In keeping with that theme, I believe I will try to explain how, as a kid, I went into the hospital and lost my spleen, but gained a sense of humor.

I will also try to pick out a couple of deserving blogs from the many great bloggers that I follow.

When finished, you will find it in my Stuff + Nonsense blog. Cinema Burlesque is a one-trick pony, not designed for acknowledging, or distributing, awards.

You got an award for mouthing off?

Damn, this internet thing is a piece of cake.


Congratulations, Utah.

Utah Savage said...

Wee Mousie, I'm sorry. I forgot, I've probably given you awards before, or you wouldn't be sending me this message. I hope the hospital tests go well. I will make myself a note not to give you future awards. It was not meant to cause a problem for you. Sorry if I nagged you to pick up an award you did not want. Sometimes I can be terribly slow and a bit dense.

thank you my dear , you are always too kind!

I am soooo glad you blog, Utah! And, Barbie. Don't get me started. I hate that bitch!
