Michelle has a great blog, based on her made-up word “fraddle,” which she defines as, “the act or an instance of doing something for or with someone because you love them.” Therefore, I feel especially honored to receive an award from someone who developed an entire blog theme around such a fabulous made-up word and accompanying definition. So without further ado, let me pull out my crumpled paper, quickly put on a pair of glasses, and clear my throat…
(taps microphone)… “Is this thing on?”
(jumps as the feedback screeches)… “Oops, sorry!”
(glances at the crumpled paper)… “ Uhhh, I’d like to thank the Academy…”
When the dad in A Christmas Story when won a trivia contest and his leg lamp arrived in a fra-gee-lay crate, he proudly declared, “It’s a major Award!” I’m glad to have a major award of my own, and even gladder that it’s not a leg lamp. In all seriousness, if you’re reading this right now, thank you for taking the time to be a Farris Wheel reader (er, rider.) If no one read this stuff, then I might as well go back to writing by hand in my diary. But thanks to you all, my real-life friends and my newly-made cyber ones, I’ve been inspired to send the thoughts circling in my head out into cyberspace. And thus far, I have enjoyed it immensely, and I hope you have too.
The rules accompanying my award stipulate that I pass it on to 15 bloggers whose websites are particularly outstanding, ones that I have recently discovered. As a relatively new citizen of the blogosphere who has trolled these waters for less than a month, I have elected to postpone my award-bestowing ceremony until sometime in the future when I have a better grasp of blogdom.
So look out. You never know when I might be sending you a leg lamp.
