"Oooooooohhhhhhh!!!!!!!! I cain't believe it.....OOOohhhhhhh!!!!!! Well, first, I'd like to thank....

my mamma and my daddy...'cuz if it weren't for them, I'd have never been born and my boyfriend, Earl, he's sittin' right over there (points to man in audience, the one wearing overalls, a wife beater and cowboy boots)(giggling), see Baby, I told you I could do it! And, I'd like to thank my stylist, Candace, without her, I would never have figured out how to do my hair by myself or even put on one of these fancy dresses. Oh, and my eighth grade drama teacher, miz puffbow, really, it's all 'cuz of her and her encouragement that I decided to become an actress....Oh, and of course, the Baby Jesus, 'cause without Him and my prayin' none of this would have been possible............."(smiles as tears and black streaks run down her cheeks)"what? what do you mean I didn't win an oscar? well, what did I win? A what? I'm sorry, what did you say? what's that for? I won four awards? Who gave them to me? She diiiid? What for? 'Cause she's a sweetheart, you say?"

I'd like to take this time to thank my dear friend, Julochka of Moments of Perfect Clarity for the following awards bestowed on me and some other notable bloggers:

maria-thérèse of afiori

ju of blog maia & lara

kristine of where is kristine now?

lea bolvig

georgie k. buttons of the author's desk

tiffany of the water bottle

(Clearly, I do not deserve the Kreativ Blogger award because I cannot seem to make more than one image at a time sit where I want it to, as evidenced by this post) (also, not to mention, I should have put in links for all of the other winners, however, wrastling with the images has plumb tuckered me out, whew. this blogging crap is hard work)
Again, thank you so much Julochka, you are too kind!

Hee, you are so adorable! I'm so glad you're so excited, and Blog Camp sounds awesome! I hope you have an amaaaaaazing time!

(Re, my last post - Sorry for the angry, blasphemous slang. I curse a lot when I get mad. :/ Must learn to use big words and not expletives. And yeah... hee. I've been told I'm rather frightening when I'm angry... now if I could just channel it into RL instead of blogging... ^^)

Congratulations!! Nice.

I really do leave the chairs at the windows for the cats. They sleep on them most of the day watching the little animals and the neighbors come and go.

Pat said...

Congratulations on your awards. And if I should ever need a speech writer, you're it, girl!

An Open Heart said...

Aw, shucks, y'all, thank yoooouuu.
Robin- of course I practiced the speech in front of the mirror...using a hair brush as a microphone.

Brian - I'm so glad lives have been changed...I was hoping my performance was dramatic enough!

McGillicutty - thanks for blessing my little cotton socks, my English friend does that all the time. The things crossed off on the list are the things I have done....still working on the rest of the list.

Hit 40 - Lucky cats.....

Pat - let me know if you're in a pickle and need a speech, I'm happy to help out!
