"A" is for "Awards." Oops, that challenge has finished. Well, after they've finished with the reflections upon the reflections postings and how they survived the challenge postings. Actually, by that time, it will most likely be April Fool's Day, 2014.
And here's another oops. Waiting in the wings were four awards bestowed upon myself or the real superstar of this unassuming blog, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! Just to confirm, they weren't literally waiting in the wings.Working 2 Write You can find out about her book, "One Hundred Ways for a Chicken to Train its Human." at this link, 100 Ways for a Chicken to Train its Human Thanks again, Diane and may you have much fulfilment in your writing endeavours.
Our adorable friend, Joylene, passed on the, "One Lovely Blog Award", to yes, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! Penny is supposed to mention seven things about her modest self. She's done that before and she hopes Joylene will understand that she's way too shy to repeat seven things about her modest self. Penny would like to inform you, if by some incredible reason, you haven't visited Joylene's site, here it is, eh, Joylene Nowell Butler Suspense Author. Before Penny went for her tenth nap of the day, she asked me, yes me, her mere human, to say, "thank you very much, human, Joylene."
Oh my goodness and this was a bit of a shock. I received the above award from Mark Means. Me thinkest this is kinda' ironic. What Mark stated in regards to the award was that the rules were pretty straightforward. Um, take a deep breath, Gary. Um.....to list your ten favourite bloggers from the past A to Z Challenge. Yes, Mark included me in his list of ten! Considering I didn't actually participate, would never participate, to have been included is actually quite a compliment in a bizarre sort of way. It's true, my anarchic alternative astounding alphabet challenge, the "Z to A", was intended to try and bring some light-hearted relief to those who were participating.
Mark, I'm flattered you would include me in your notable list of ten. I pass this award onto all those involved in the A to Z Challenge who embraced the ideals of a sharing, caring blogging community. If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Mark, you can find him here, Left and Write. Thanks again, Mark, it was a pleasant surprise :)
Okay, that's it. I broke the rules on the awards. Please forgive me. Please forgive Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!
