I'd Like to Thank The Academy

What a nice surprise in my mailbox this afternoon! I'm so excited to win this award from the 2007 Weblog Awards site "Best Blog of the Day"........How exciting is this?!!


Indulge me while I make my diva speech:

I'd like to thank my third grade teacher, Mrs. Humpersnicker, for believing in me. She thought my cursive writing was grand - and unreadable.
.....All the little people.
I don't know who the "little people" are but I always wanted to say it.

.....My family who loved me even when they were starving while I wrote the Great American Blog instead of cooking dinner. (Not really. There is no family here but it sounds good)
.....My pet tree who always listens and never barks back.
.....The accounting firm of Blogger and Blogger
..... God, Mickey Mouse, my divorce attorney, Dillard's sales (which are partly responsible for my divorce) and my tax accountant - for helping me figure out how to spend all the money I'm getting for winning this award.

I am winning money.......right?

But seriously, I must admit it felt really good to post an award icon at the top of my blog. But even if I'd never won bragging rights of any kind I'd still consider myself to be the luckiest blogger alive..

Because my true rewards land daily in my comment box - from you.

My friends

My readers

Our Peace Globes

You bring a smile to my life everyday.

Blogging has led me on a remarkable journey, and one that is getting more and more exciting by the day.

And last but never least.......
Lots of hugs and kisses to the person who nominated me for today's recognition.
He is the real award.

Excellent Mimi--you deserve it!

As a former winner of this great reward myself (I say humbly!) - congratulations! You deserve it!

Congrats! I've seen this award in the blogsphere lately! Well done.

This isn't your first award is it? Surely, this must the 2nd, 3rd time at least. Congrats, as I know you have spent much time reading and nominating others. Certainly, no one deserves it more. Now, if you will just pick a height between 3' and 6' we can determine who the "little people are" I'm at 5'10" so I didn't want to be excluded. Good job.

Turnbaby - Thanks! I'm truly honored. You have a great blog as well.

Linda - You may humbly say it! You are on a winning streak it would seem. Last week's win for you on Saturday Comeback Challenge was the highlight of your blog career...uhh....right??? lol

Alphwoman - Thanks for stopping in today. I'm quite full of myself this morning. (he he). But I'll try to control myself and say a simple "thank you".....to the academy....to my parents...to my pet lobster....

Mimi Lenox said...

SGT DUB - Thank you! And yes, this is my first award for Mimi Writes. I'm totally psyched. As for the little people....you could never be among them. You - and the work that you do everyday - are HIGH on my list..tall as a tree...a looming giant of a friend....OK, I'll stop now. I seem to be on a roll this morning. Have a great day and be safe in Afghanistan. Your humble (and chatty) friend, Mimi

Mimi -

Definitely winning The Comeback Challenge was a major feather in my cap this week (as well as a major award posted prominently on my blog page!). Now if I could just win the coveted award twice in a row I would be ecstatic but I'm sure the competition is going to be tough, tough, tough!

Congratulations, mimi! How nice for you! You certainly deserve the nod. And you should be full of yourself. Who better?

Morgen said...

Yeah, congrats!!!!
You really did deserve this recognition!
Yay!

By the by, I just wanted to let you know that now that you are an "award-winning" blog, I am going to add you to my links if that's okay.

I want to be able to come back here often and quickly!

(And I'd do it without you getting the nod from the Academy, too!)

Sanni said...

YAY! Congrats on this lovely award =)
Well deserved, Queen Mimi!
