I Never Won a Grammy, but...



I have won THREE - count 'em - THREE blogger awards now!  BOY, do I feel loved!  You may remember the first award (see We Rock) from Karen at Fiction for Dessert (Thanks again, Karen!  You're awesome!!!).


Now, I've gotten awards #2 and #3!  In the same day!!

So, yeah, it's the same award, but I got it from two different bloggers who I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!  Yay me!!  My first...

 

...comes from your favorite fowl and mine - CHICKEN!  From the hilarious blog The Chicken's Consigliere. Check her out.  She's silly and fun and makes me smile EVERY DAY!  Chicken had this to say about Musical Musings: 
Second up is Stolen Sentiments aka Musical Musings because she reminds us of the cutest, most playful puppy you've ever seen, always leaving the greatest comments and once she left us a Fiesta, people, which charmed the socks off us.
How sweet is that?  I feel so loved.  (So loved, in fact, that a smiley pancake is in order...)




My second...


...comes from CRAZY Becca over at NeuroticGirl.  You will note that Becca received an award from me when I got my first award (again, see We Rock), but I don't think she realized it.  So - Becca - check out your award!  (I didn't know Chicken then, or she would've been on there, too, for sure.)  And you, readers, check out Becca, because she's funny and nuts and just inappropriate enough to be utterly fantastic.

Becca picked me because:
Stolen Sentiments, a fellow musical muser and loyal follower of mine (thanks for hanging around!);
Thanks Becca!  And you're welcome.  You never fail to make me laugh out loud.  (And Dalia never fails to scare me, just a little...)

Now, as with any great honor, this one comes with responsibilities.  The first is to bestow the award upon five other awesome blogs.  Easy enough!!!

  1. Chicken.  I know this is cheating, since I don't think you're supposed to give an award back to the person who gave it to you.  However, as per usual, I found a way to circumvent the rules.  So, I'm giving one of my allotments from Becca's award to Chicken.  Chicken - You're beautiful, Birdie!
  2. Becca.  Yep - using the same tactics to award Becca another one.  Funny, funny stuff, and well-deserving. 
  3. Sam.  Apparently, I inspired my friend Sam's personal blog, The Answers are Simple.  She's funny and cute and NEEDS TO WRITE MORE!!  And, she's my best publicist!  I love you, Sam!!  
  4. Katie.  Another person inspired by Musical Musings!  Wow!  I feel so powerful!  Check out Words by Katie!  It's inspirational and sweet, and she has a really cute layout.  
  5. Living Shallow, Living Well.  At a blog of the same name.  She's pee-in-your-pants funny.  My favorite post: Census 2010.  
  6. (Yes, I know.  The rules say five.  Well, I'm a rule-breaker, remember?  Get over it.) Miss Morgan.  She found me and I in turn found her.  It's thanks to her that I now know the joy of 2001: A Drunk Odyssey.  Her posts have gotten me through some long nights.  Visit her over at Comedy or Tragedy?
The second responsibility that comes with a fabulous award such as this is to list seven things about yourself that your readers can't get from your blog.  Well, I covered a lot in my About Me, but here's some more obscure Kristen Facts: 
  1. I started riding horses when I was 10 years old, at summer camp.  I haven't ridden for the past year or so because I'm poor, but it's my biggest passion.  I'm hoping to adopt a horse later this year (maybe this one), if I ever get a raise... 
  2. I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish, but I can barely remember a word of it.  Pathetic.
  3. At the risk of alienating myself from everyone else out there, I'll admit that I don't like Lady Gaga.  I saw her open for the New Kids on the Block (I'll have to do a whole post on that, later...) and she was HORRIBLE.  Now when I look at her, I can't get that image out of my head...
  4. If I could have one wish, it would be to have been born in 1949.  That would've made me just the right age for the Beatles, Woodstock, Kennedy, Civil Rights, and everything in between. 
  5. I used to be smart.  I was even labeled as "gifted" when I was a child.  Who would've thunk it?  
  6. My nickname in high school was "Princess".  It was given to me by my creative writing professor because I refused to write in anything but purple pen.  When she tried to convince me to use black, like everyone else, she told me: "To write in black is to write with authority."  I replied: "But, to write in purple is to write with royalty."  It stuck...  
  7. My desk is cluttered but psychotically tidy, but my bedroom and car are both a total wreck.  
Well, I've met all of my obligations!  So, on to the rest of the day.  Feeling just a little more beautiful...

Wow, I've never been number 6 on a list of 5 Awesome Blogs before! Yay! Thank you so much, I'm quite excited! :D

On another note, I totally think I was born in the wrong decade too! And I was also "gifted" as a child, which instead of being awesome kinda just sucked most of the time, haha.

I was not gifted as a child. I was a pain in the ass with big lips. Still, I got through it. Thank you SS. Can I share something with you? I really like that smiley pancake. Could I use that for my award and, like, make up my own rules for it? That would be awesome.

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

SS-assuming you don't mind if I pirate the smiley pancake as an award, you have to make up a name for it. Unless you want me to. Anxiously awaiting your reply. Chicken. Out.

Stolen Sentiments said...

Yes Chicken! I was already thinking you should use the pancake as your award! Great minds, great minds...

I will ponder a name. As a life-long Young and Restless fan (even though I know it's really for Jack Nicholson and not Jack Abbott), I'm leaning towards the Smiling FlapJack award for Bloggy Happiness Excellence.

But then, I did just wake up, so I'll probably be able to come up with something much more clever once Deac gets back with the coffee...

And Miss Morgan - Your new art project screams "gifted" - so, sorry. You haven't shaken the title yet...
