Passage of awards & A new one

A few weeks ago, some of my super sweet bleeps (blogging peeps) gave me two awards because they rule. I was supposed to pass them and then everything went nutso around here.

So I'm pretending it's Monday to share some b'love (blog love) AND I've got a special surprise at the end... So stick around.

Now for the awards~

My poetic friend Ellie gave me the Happy 101 award. THANKS, ELLIE! She has the coolest blog. Every time I hop over there, I'm reminded that even though we're miles apart, we're often thinking the same thing. And it's SO WEIRD...

I think this one has something to do with hitting 100 followers, so I felt like I should recognize some of the bleeps who helped me get here. And by that I mean some of my new 100s.

I'm supposed to pass this to 10 people--wow! So here goes (the names are also links to their blogs, so check them out. They're awesome, unique and supercool).


What? That was eleven you say? ... Next!

My dear, dear friend Natasha/Rayna who lives even farther away and whose blog will give you a 10 second culture lesson a day--no joke, check it out--gave me the Awesomous Maximus award. Wow. All I can say is THANK YOU, and no, it's all you.

We live on opposite sides of the planet and grew up in vastly different cultures and religions, yet we still see things in amazingly similar ways. There's a lesson there...

I'm passing it to these awesome bloggers--all unique and fascinating:

Anne
Stina
Ellie
Angie

And now for the Surprise...

Candy did it. Alex did it. And now I'm jumping on the bandwagon and creating my OWN award. It's the "Strangely Irresistable" award (a.k.a., the Yo Gabba Gabba award).

[Note: Image removed due to copyright concerns.]

There are two people in particular who deserve this award--Vicki (the confused, unofficial YGG ambassador) and Stephen (who gave me the idea).

The others get it, because, well... it's simply true. They are just darned strangely irresistable--check them out at once.

Only rule with this one: spread the YGG love and pass it to three (or more) blogging besties who fill the bill. Now the Lucky 13 first recipients of Leigh's first blaward are....


Now get out there and spread the B'love! I get to be DJ Lance... <3~
