Grizzly Shocker!

Not only did one of my favoritest bloggers, Always on Watch, give me this award, but so did Vicki at Not Ready For My Burqa! I think Vicki has the best named blog on the planet.

Thank you, ladies. You're very kind, but I believe that you may have had to relax the rules a bit to let me into this club! As per these instructions, now:

I get to have the fun of passing this along to 7 more women bloggers who write about subjects that are often not very nice at all, but try to maintain a courteous and friendly tone at their blogs. As one lady put it, “It just shows that we can get our message across without turning into crass and rude people.”

Here goes!

Cubed at Project Education Renovation.

Jennifer Gallagher at Now For Something Different.

Tweetey at NBR's Spot.

Skye at Ancora Imparo.

Four Inch Heels, who co-posts at The Bill T Blog.

Tshsmom at Homeschooling Tourettes.

Kate at The Tate School.

All of these women are truly nice, truly diplomatic, and good hearted. It makes me wonder, after having nearly ripped a woman's face of just the other night, how I could ever have been mistaken for a nice blogger! ;-) The blogosphere is an amazing 'place', isn't it?

Even if it weren't limited to women, something tells me I wouldn't win the "nice" award.

I'm not quite sure how I got named to this club.

Glad to see that you named Cubed!

Hi Monica, thanks for your vote of confidence. It's a tough world and believe me I've been a real bitch at times. The one thing though that someone once told me and I believe it's true is; you can pretty much get an idea of the character of a person by the friends they keep.

How sweet! Thanks Monica. I gotta say j_g hit the hammer on the nail with :
"you can pretty much get an idea of the character of a person by the friends they keep"

AMEN TO THAT! i've been saying this to my oldest lately... i think he gets it.

You are wonderful with your words, not ashamed to write/speak the truth of how you feel. Good insight here - always. Thanks for the vote. That picture is hillarious (the shoes filled with flowers!) ;)

I have to say I will do this later on today yet. Give me bit.Kora and i have found a good way to learn to count by two's. I made a grid instead of printing the one you sent me via link. LOL... I cant print anything right now with our printer so I am improvising. LOL... You do what you have to do. But she is so excited about it. All this learning she is doing. I am so proud of her Monica. You know the feeling I am talking about. The accomplishment she is making.

This is how rumors and stigmas get started.

Congratulations Grizzly Mama!

Thanks Monica!
I didn't feel particularly nice when I saw this yesterday. I'd just had one of the worst days at work that I've ever had in 30 years of waitressing! Your confidence in me brightened my day!
In honor of the award, I didn't post my "Entitled Rich People Can Rot in Hell" post. I wouldn't want to ruin my "nice" reputation. ;)

BTW, I don't think Vest would agree with you bestowing this award on me.

You tagged Tshsmom and Tweety. Dang, I got tagged this same one and wanted to tag Tweety and I knew Tshsmom was already tagged. Oh well.

An awesome thing to be tagged. I'll definitely have to come back here again. :)

My apologies for being late - as you know, the summer has not gone as planned, and I am truly slow on the draw.

Thank you so much for the nomination! Once about 50 years ago, I won a cake at a "cake walk" at a friend's birthday party, and about 30 years ago I won a kerosene heater at the local hardware store, but this is head and shoulders above those!

Being "nice" isn't the easiest thing to do these days, considering the nature of the problems we are facing, so this nomination really means a lot. Underneath it all, I am so angry, and I think very petty thoughts!

I know that it is a tough world and believe me, sometimes it is quite hard to survive here but you can pretty much get an idea of the character of a person by the friends they keep.
