Last night was an amazing night. Dashing in a tux with alongside my wife in her striking auburn Donna Karan gown, we walked the red carpet. Lightbulbs flashed, interviewers were everywhere, and the fans were delirious. And the after parties, well I don’t kiss and tell. Suffice to say, the tabloids will be buzzing this week. Glorious, it was just a glorious night. Now, I had my speeches prepared. Humble, humorous, hip, I had it all going on. What, pray tell, you may be thinking was going on? Well, I had been nominated for two more blogger awards – the Sunshine Award and The One Lovely Blog Award and last night was the Blogger Awards. As noted above, the award ceremony was posh. You didn’t hear about it? That wasn’t a dream was it?
Let me first answer some questions associated with the awards. Here goes:
Favorite Number: 7. Not so original. Truthfully, it doesn’t mean all that much to me.
Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Yoohoo. Chocolate milk – yum, yum.
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook. I am not so into it but have never even been on Twitter.
My Passion: Sports. I am currently sports depressed. Darn Philadelphia teams.
Favorite Pattern: The patterns of nature. Patterns in the sky, on leaves and the bark on trees, for example.
Favorite Day of the Week: The Sabbath. I enjoy the serenity.
Favorite Flower: Marigolds. I don’t know many flowers but I bought these at the flower show on a 2nd grade trip for my mother. I was a good boy!
One of the awards instructed me to note: Seven Things You May Not Know About Me. So, here goes 7 more.
1. The first song I ever memorized all the words to is Meeting Across the River by Bruce Springsteen and the East Street Band.
2. Batman is my favorite superhero.
3. The first time I really thought I wanted to be a writer was after completing John Updike’s Rabbit series.
4. I love snow (even more so when I was younger).
5. I always wanted to be 6’2’’. I would have settled for 6’3’’ or 6’4’’. I’m 5’11. Oh well!
6. I don’t enjoy scary movies.
7. I am not good at learning languages.
Now let me tell you about My Nominees. I’m going to note 7 as it is my favorite number. The first two are the people who gave it to me. Thanks so much to both of you.
I have now been nominated for 4 awards. I am 14 short of Susan Lucci who was nominated 18 times before she won. So, there is hope for me. I’ll see you at the awards show next year. Get your formal wear ready.
