On Friday I saw that Delia Lloyd mentioned amidlifeofprivilege on RealDelia. I was flabbergasted. I really like her blog on becoming a grownup. It is about becoming, rather than one day being done with the process. And she writes, as in she does it for a living, for periodicals I’ve read all my life. I was, as I said, flabbergasted. And grateful. Thank you Delia.
Last week I also received the Premium Meme Award from blogger Brown-Eyed Girl. Let me just say that she used to work as a Petrophysicist in Denver and her husband is now a professor of something that involves trips to Iceland. Thank you Brown-Eyed Girl.
1. Loquacious. (Big word of the day) Which, as the point of enumerating points of one’s personality ought to be to improve said personality, I will now address by making this list short.
7. And thinking to herself, hmm, if English were a simpler language, less of a mutt, perhaps designed by a computer scientist, these adjectives would have one word ending only and this list might have included the words, Enthusiastious, Analyticious, and Optimistious, which I cannot figure out how to pronounce. And also thinking, this list should have included Having Good Intentions But Being Sometimes Swept Away By The Process Or The Task At Hand, as evidenced by the singular lack of brevity in item 7.
The envelope please. This award now goes to; Jan at Jan’s Sushi Bar for constant good humor, f8hasit for the best About Me photo ever, materfamilias for repeated evidence of intelligence (she is an academic after all), Academic, Hopeful because she is writing a thesis and might need to procrastinate, Princess Freckles because she, like my daughter, is a ballet dancer and a friendly one at that, Lipstick at the Mailbox because I still think her daughter is a huge cutie pie, and Muffy Martini. Because she is Muffy and she will be getting married in the not too distant future. Should they choose to accept, of course, and with all due respect for etiquette.
In case you had forgotten, tomorrow is Monday. Glad to be of help.
