Dancing Feet Are Happy Feet

Mary The Teach who "works as a poet" got slap happy with blogging today and is just brimming over with perky mirth and so she birthed a baby penguin award! Something about her poetic presence makes me want to alliterate til Kingdom Come and wax perky poetic myself. See? I can't stop. Let her tell you what she did. Imagine this:

"Every morning I wake up I notice that I dance into my office and sit down at my computer with the happy expectation that I will touch base with my dear Blogger Friends. It occurred to me to create this award for those friends, and it's called the "You Give Me Happy Feet" award When I think of you my feet begin to tappin' and I pirouette across the floor in total delight that I will be talking/commenting to you in a little while. And of course my feet aren't the on only parts of my body that are happy because of you. My head is boppin', my mouth is smilin,' my hands are clappin' - all because of you. And here are the people I give this award to..." (her recipients)

This is so cool! (ha!)
Thank you, Mary, for thinking of me and causing me to alliterate all over the place. Your literary excellence is contagious. Hopefully. My feet feel a little happier now. I will pass this on to three bloggers who I believe must swallow a silly pill every now and then. Their blogs are happy places to be. Congrats to -
Speedy Hollydale (whose feet were hanging out of a plane just recently! I can't find that post but it was there I tell ya... now it's gone...) Update: He just left the link! See? And now look what's he's done with the penguins!
Frank The King of Silly at Foxxfyrre's Honk 'n Hollr (and one of my very first blog friends. He is the best.)
Jeff from the great Pacific Northwest who keeps us entertained with strange mysterious pictures and word puzzles just trying to get A Word In Edgewise in the blogosphere.
They all make my feet happy! Thanks Mary...for making so many of us smile today with your adorable award.

And I'm sorry I said you were "addicted to blogging" and needed to go to Blog Blvd for a 12-step meeting.....ahem.... I really didn't mean it.

Hush Homer.

Pay no attention to him. He's just jealous because he didn't get an award this week. I'm so tired of his grumpiness.

NOW I understand why my feet won't stop dancing whenever I'm in Bloggingham! You're a Happy Feet giver!
And my head keeps snapping to the side like in the "What is Love" SNL sketch. Man, that hurts!!

Jeff B said...

Ssssssh, keep the happy pills on the down low, else the DEA will be knocking on my door asking all sorts of uncomfortable questions.

Thanks Mimi! I appreciate you thinking of me for this.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

I will be back ..... (he heee he)

Mimi Lenox said...

Ferd - Take 2 blaspirin (that's blog + aspirin) and call me in the morning!

Jeff - "Keep the happy pills on the down low...very funny. You're welcome.

Eric - Got it! Thanks!

Speedcat Hollydale said...

You are so kind. Smooooootch!

Ralph said...

Award after award for the Queen. All deserved, of course, because you need a break from angst sometimes, and you can relax knowing you will be rewarded befitting royalty...

Patti said...

You are in good company. Sir Ralph and I both are awardees as well.

How is that for some bloasting?
(that's blog+boasting)

Frank Sirianni said...

You mean I'm a King now!!!!! The only crowning I remember is when Lola, well 'nuff said--I deserved that crowning if I remember correctly LOL.
I may be a king now, but I know I'm probably still in the dungeon.
Thanks Mimi
Luv ya lots

Travis Cody said...

I shall have happy feet sometime on Monday when the cast for Dancing with the Stars is announced.

Mimi, I appreciate your appreciation of the Happy Feet Award and my silliness! There are times when I feel silly and when people(you especially get it) I get a real LOL! I think you're the first one who commented (cough cough) on my use of the word "indeed." I love that you noticed! You're a real HOOT! And yes, I am addicted to blogging and I'm glad Homer caught you apologizing. I died laughing when I saw his message... :)

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - Loved your post! Mary will too.

Ralph - I'm trying to learn to relax. Oooommm.....

Patti - Bloasting! Ha!

Frank - You know I heart you too!

Travis - And we will all await your brilliant deductions and expertise. Say....they should hire you as a judge. Would you like the Queen to write a letter of recommendation?

Mary - That Homer keeps me honest. But he's a good dog. Don't tell him I said that...

Jeff is a keeper, isn't he? I love his wit and insight.
