Donna, over at Donna's Den was such a sweetie, and took pity on my ass when I hinted around that I loved this award and didn't have it. Well, now I do, and I thank ya Donna, from the bottom of my book-lovin' heart! Let's see... what am I to do in order to accept this most prestigious literary award?
I must pass this on to 5 blogging friends.
Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56.
Write out the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that.
Ooh bloggers, this is so friggin' exciting to me, because at this moment (okay, not exactly this moment, but you get my drift) I am reading a phenomenal book called American Pie written by an incredibly talented author by the name of Michael Lee West. If you haven't heard already, Michael just happens to be our very own Gollum of Designs by Gollum! I know what you're thinking. "Oh, she's just blowing Gollum's horn (does that sound kinky?) so she can get a book dedicated to her or something!", but that just ain't true
Okay, I've digressed. Let me go to the 56th page and hunt up the 5th line.
"That's too early." I flopped back on the bed, draping one hand over my eyes. "Come back to bed."
"Breakfast at the Magdalena is a Sunday morning tradition," he said. "Besides, we've got work to do." He reached under the sheet and plucked out my foot, pinching my big toe. "I thought you had a craving for huevos con chorizo."
Now tell me bloggers, was that not literary genius? Michael is like the Michaelangelo of words, the Picasso of syntax, the DaVinci of friggin' publishing! I shit you not. If you haven't grabbed at least one of her books you're an idiot. Okay, that wasn't very nice, was it? Let me try this again. If you haven't grabbed at least one of her books, you can SUCK IT! Oh shit, that wasn't very nice either, was it? Well, screw it. I can't be nice about it. Go buy her damn books already!
Okay, I don't know who all already owns this award, but I've gotta pick 5 people anyway.
First on my list has got to be Jill at JillJillBoBill because she's so damn funny I nearly wet myself every time I visit her. I don't know if she's a book worm, but she's a damn funny writer, so here's to you, Jill!
Next, the honor goes to Michael, at Designs by Gollum! Okay, she probably should have been first on the list, but my brain is half frozen from sitting outside in the cold. I guess it's weird giving an author a book worm award, especially when my post was all about her, but I hope she'll be gracious enough to accept it anyway.
Now to Nikki of the Blah Blah Blah Blog. Nikki is another one of those bloggers who has a mind that moves a million miles a minute, and what comes through her nervous system and down into her fingers and then to the keyboard, cracks me up every time. Go Nikki!
Hmmm... who shall I pick next? I think Dot at Picket Fences deserves this little puppy because all of her posts make me smile. Some make me cringe with the whacked-out recipes she shares, but that's neither here nor there. I also love Dot because half the time when she comments on a post of mine, her comment is ten times funnier than what I blogged about! I just love to stir her up and make her blush!
And last, but certainly not least, I bestow this rockin' award on my great friend Gigi, also known as Bridget, at My Silly Blog. Not only is she also currently reading American Pie, but I owe her one because last month she cleaned out her makeup drawer and sent me all the stuff she no longer wanted. We're not talking Cover Girl crap here either. I'm talkin' Smashbox, Lancome, and quite a few other cosmetic brands my cheapo ass had never even heard of. Thanks Gigi!
Okay, I think I've filled my award obligations now. If you guys who got them would like, you too can pass this one on and do the rules part. But Bridget, I guess you shouldn't because you'd be typing out the same lines as me!
