I have been ta...er..awarded

Sandra of Sandra's Mixed Bag surprised me recently with an Over the Top Award:

Thanks! I definitely did not expect anything like that...And I don't exactly know what it means or where it originated from. It just gives one a nice feeling, like a pat on the shoulder and a  "Hey, I like what you're doing. Keep it up!" So, in the same spirit, I would like to present the following people with the Over the Top Award:

  • Evi of E*PHI = LOG, whose sense of humor instills me with hope that not all is lost for this world :)
  • Andrea Joseph of  Andrea Joseph's Sketchblog, who makes fantastic illustrations and probably already has a dozen of Over the Top Awards.
  • Lisa Thayer of L.K.Thayer's Poetry Juice Bar , who probably will not care much about all this blog award business but whose abundance of good food for thought and candy for eyes is worthy of more than a friendly pat on the shoulder.
  • Katie Hoffman of Paint Fumes, whose paintings are...well, you'll have to see ;)
  • Alex of Bare Knuckle Flash, whose synthesis of photography and writing is thought-provoking.

According to the "rules" of this award, you now need to pass it on to five people and answer 35 questions with one word, like I have finally managed to right here:

1.  Where is your cell phone? bed

Yea...All the important truth you've been dying to learn about me.  Anyway, with every recipient of the award being required to tag award five more people, at some point in the future, every blogger should get one (granted the recipients are diligent and not too many people receive the award multiple times...). And what a friendly world this will be. Cheers.
