the gabbies, part something

Can I say first that awards are fabulous and the more the merrier you people are all far too kind and generous with these lovely awards. And that I absolutely don't deserve them. (That's not even a strike out). Thank you from the bottom of my rotten little heart.

The first, Blogging That hits the mark!, is from Ciara at Ramblings and Whatnot. I guess if the mark is something squishy hitting a fan, I'm your gal. Thanks, Ciara!

I'm passing this along to:

Jen at A Snowball's Chance...
Jo Beaufoix
Mya at Missing You Already

An Apple for Teacher Blog Award is from Irene at
Sweet Wood Talking. Here is the description of this one -

"It is for those people who spend so much time and energy teaching us how to do things on blogs, encouraging us, enabling us, instructing us and enthusing us."

Wow. Do I do that? Thanks, Irene!

This one goes to:

Dumdad at The Other Side of Paris
Akelamalu at Everything and Nothing
pixelpi at Motes & other small things
Eileen at A Life of Triggers

Lastly, from Flowerpot at Flowerpot Days, comes the gender neutral Awesome Dude Blogger award. Every time I look in a mirror lately I think there's a Dude looking back at me, so I think this is quite appropriate. Thanks, Flowerpot!

Step up, Dudes and Dudettes:

Ciara at Ramblings and Whatnot
Diana at Piffle
Amy at Blog to the Bone
Irene at Sweet Wood Talking

And, as mentioned earlier this week, from Jo Beaufoix comes the Blogging Star Award. Thanks again, Jo!

And the winners are:

laurie at Three Dog Blog
Kaycie at lost in the Bible Belt
Crystal Jigsaw
Flowerpot at Flowerpot Days

I do apologize for the lackluster Gabby Awards Presentation this time around. The dance numbers were out of step, the presenters forgot their lines and the jokes fell flat. This has been an unexpected burner of a last few days and I'm running a quart low about now. I've also been very lax in my blog reading and commenting the last little bit, but don't give up on me. I'm going to get a good nights sleep and attack the keyboard with a vengeance tomorrow!

Thank you RC, what a wonderful surprise to start my day with. I am truly humbled to get this award and will treat it with all the spit an polish it deserves! It is way up there in good awards to get as far as I am concerned. I will pass it on, of course, and will think of someone appropriate to give it to. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Ooo I love squishy long as I don't have top clean it up.

Thank you dear RC, and look at you with all the bling. See how much we all love you?


Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee RC come over to mine for some bloggy bling.

Jen said...

My goodness, RC, you're going to have to put an addition onto your sidebar to house all of that! And of course, you deserve every single one of those.

And I get a splat award! How cool!

Amy said...

I'd like to thank the Academy and my parents and my husband and kids, and most of all, The Rotten Correspondent for this most totally awesome Awesome Dude Award. Dude, I am, like, so stoked, and I totally megaswear this award will be well hung (Dude!) in my temple of extreme gloriousness. Excellent!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Well, I am honoured! This is a cure for a cold any day. Just got back from Manchester and have two days catching up to do. A very nice welcome home for me, if I may say so!
