I Am Honored


Thinker at Theory of Thought has awarded me the Rockin' Girl Blogger Award. Thank you, Wonderful Person, for putting me in the same league as you.

I am choosing five women who, as far as I know, don't already have this particular honor. I am also not giving it to anyone I gave the Thinking Blogger Award to so as to spread the love.

It's not easy because there are so many of you whose blogs I read constantly and enjoy so much.

1. Meno at Meno's Blog always makes me think or feel something. Her comments on other people's blogs are often exactly what I want to say, but she usually says it first. Naturally, I think she's brilliant.

2. Josie at All In Good Time has an adorable puckish irreverence and her varied posts are always delightful company. She is also a most talented painter.

3. Pam at Audio Video Disco..I Hear..I See.. I Learn. Her blog is a wonderland of gorgeous photographs with commentary of Australia through the eyes of someone who loves her land, and is one of the most genuinely kind and giving people in the blogosphere.

4. Eslocura at Eslocura's Asylum returned to Puerto Rico, where she was born, after growing up in Brooklyn, NY. She is an observer and a seeker who is able to convey real life in the Caribbean, which is fascinating to those of us who have only been there as tourists, if at all.

5. Jocelyn at O Mighty Crisis often manages to be delightfully cranky and screamingly funny at the same time. Not surprisingly, she teaches writing, and is truly someone to emulate.

So there you have it, ladies. If anyone cares to pass on this award, please let me know so I can read your selections.

Me too! (Honored...and appreciative). Thankyou Hearts, you are...all....heart :)

To be sure I will share this with Monty and the gang.

Say!! is this the award that gets you 9 nights/10 days in New York with Keith Richards? :) So Josie Meno, Eslocura and Jocelyn and I will meet you in the big apple?

Safe travels and I will miss you, until I get there...word Keith up for me, I am shy.

Thanks very much Hearts

Pam,

I had no idea you were all gooey for Keith Richards. (Did you know he... oh, never mind.)

Yeah, we're all meeting under the clock at the Biltmore and going on tour with the Stones, all the way to Coney Island.

Clothing is optional. It's pretty hot in NY right now. So glad you can make it!

yinyang said...

Congratulations. I already read Jocelyn's, but I'll go check out the rest. These tagging things sure are useful (especially as I haven't had to do one yet, hehe). :)

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Yinyang,

It's a great way to find new blogs.

I'm sure you'll have to do it soon.

You've changed your picture!

furiousBall said...

I read Jocelyn each and every day, she's awesome. I need to check out the other four.

I'm going to make my own blogger award, "Nobody Gives Two Shits About My Blog."

Jocelyn said...

Thanks Big Much, Hearts. I'm all smiley now. And I do like this award!

meno said...

You are too kind! I am not brilliant, just un-censored.
I did already get this award, and i did a post on it last week, but, as i was uncomfortable with only naming 5 women, i changed it to Rockin' Boys, 'cause i'm difficult like that.

But i don't want to have to......anything.... with Keith Richards. He looks older than my dad, and he's not. However, i am all over a NY trip.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Furious,

Sometimes I'm sure I could win that one.

Jocelyn,

Happy I could make you smile since I do all the time at your blog.

Meno,

Oh, of course. I read your Rockin' Boys post and checked out the ones I didn't know. I probably even commented on it.

I love your blog so much that I slipped a gear.

Keith Richards has looked like that for 30 years at least.

Ian Lidster said...

Congratulations, and well-deserved.

Ian

Josie said...

I'd like to thank the Academy...

Hearts...! Thank you! I take this as a real compliment, coming from you. You have one of the best blogs in the blogosphere (is that a word?) And I'm with Pam, which hotel have you reserved for us in New York? We'll all see you there!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Ian,

Thank you!!

Josie,

We have a whole floor at the Plaza, like Eloise, from which we will be able to skibble around and run our skates along the hallways over other guests' doors.

It will be fun, you'll see.

Lee said...

I didn't know it was legal to be gooey for Keith Richards.

Good choices all. I read at least 3 of them regularly.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Lee,

What's legal got to do with it? We're talking about Keith Richards here.

Hel said...

I agree you rock!

The CEO said...

Congrads to you and to your choices. All well deserved!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Hel,

Many thanks! You do, too.

Monty,

They're all great. I read so many wonderful blogs that it was hard to choose.

My Reflecting Pool said...

ooo- good choices. I adore Jocelyns writing. I need to check out the others.

Enjoy Keith Richards. Ignore my giggling. I'm with Lee, Keith, really?

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Reflective,

Well, Keith wasn't in the original plans, but Pam was very insistent that he be included. She was quite feverish about it, actually.

What's important to my friends is important to me. I'm like that.

thethinker said...

Great list. I need to check those out.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Thinker,

I figured you picked me because you know I have friends in high places.

EsLocura said...

I am so doing a little naked happy dance, ok, I am not completely naked, I like wearing a hat when I do my naked happy dance. Can I come to NYC?, I promise to bring my hat. Thank you so much, I am honored to be listed among such beautiful ladies.

goodthomas said...

A Rockin' Woman Blogger indeed!! I cannot think of anyone more deserving.

Thank you for the referrals. Any blog you read with regularity and interest has got to be good. Thank you.

Open Grove Claudia said...

Hey congratulations! So well deserved! :)

Judith said...

Wow Such a COOL title to have - the only award that sticks in my mind is when my mother dressed me up as a prostitute (thinking it was punk) at a fancy dress and won..The judges had to be sedated they where laughing that much at me.. Explains a lot about me know LOL

Stewart Sternberg said...

You know I want a blog award of some kind. I'm not sure which one or by who. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to be awarded anything by the Heritage Foundation or by Martha Stewart, but still.

Well....enjoy the moment. Bask in the glory. Do wild things with nylon and baby oil, but don't tell anyone.

Kate said...

I will definitely check out those blogs! Yours is my favourite, so I imagine those will be great too!

Enjoy your trip and I look forward to reading about it when you get back!

Kate

Dumdad said...

Hearty congratulations!!!!!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Eslocura,

I'm in NY!!! You should have come, too. You could do your naked happy dance for a much bigger audience.


Thomas,

You always say the sweetest things. I like that in a man.

My girlfriends are all amazing. You won't be disappointed.


Claudia,

Thank you so much!

Judith,

My 15 minutes of fame pales in comparison with yours. As does my mother alongside a woman who would dress her daughter like a hooker.

You and your mum both rock.

Stewart,

What kinds of things with nylon and baby oil? I bet Judith's mother would know, and probably Martha, too, but I'm always a little behind the curve.

Kate,

Thank you for the kind, kind words. I'm having a wonderful time in New York, but I miss all of you.

Dumdad,

I heart Paris. (France, not Hilton.)

Michael C said...

Congrats! I read Josie but am looking forward to reading the others!!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Michael,

Josie is wonderful! I think you'll like the others, too.

I'll look for you in their comments.

CS said...

Congratulations, and well deserved. I have been enjoying checking the blogs of everyone's choices, and look forward to seeing your picks (except Jocelyn, who I already know and love.)

Ryane said...

Hi Hearts, I tagged you! Go and see!!

velvet girl said...

A well deserved award!

Hope that you had fun in NY. :)

Kevin Charnas said...

Congratulations! Rock On, sister.

Pawlie Kokonuts said...

You haven't posted in a while; the world awaits.

Liz said...

An absolutely deserved award! Good for you and glad that you are spending 10 days away in NYC.

Kate S said...

Congratulations, and well deserved. :)

Jay said...

Can't wait to check them out!

Hel said...

I am enjoying these slowly, slowly.

Sienna said...

Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And make a brand new start of it
New York, New York
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps
To find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York, New York.

G'day mate! Just dropped in and singing my heart out..:-)

Pam

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Cs,

Yes, we're both Jocelyn junkies. I love her way with words.

Ryane,

I'll be right there. Thank you.

Velvet,

I did. I got to visit my hometown and my delightful family, and it was really wonderful.


Kevin,

Thank you, brother.

Pawlie,

Please forgive me. I've been away for Ten Days. That's a long time to be silent.

Liz,

I'm BACK!! I'll be over soon to see what you've been up to. (After I get some food in this place and do laundry.)

Kate,

Thank you kindly, ma'am.

Jay,

Try it, you'll like it.

Hel,

Some things can't be rushed.

Pam,

Well, that woke me right up. I didn't know you had such a great voice, but it doesn't surprise me.

Congratulations!!!!!!! M
