I have been remiss in acknowledging blog awards. The trip to Santa Barbara to take care of my stepfather put me behind. I’m gradually catching up. I’m going to bend the rules a little (tisk, tisk, tisk), but remember, we’re aiming for eccentric in another decade or two.
Here’s a Valentine for all of you. I didn’t even have to get my fingers sticky. And thanks. I appreciate you thinking of me.
The Preppy Princess was the first commenter ever on my blog. I started writing just about a year ago, and a little while later Susan said something to me on one of my posts. Made my day. She has continued to be a source of support and good counsel, as she is for many in the blogosphere. The Preppy Princess is very well known but may be new to you – she writes a blog on fashion news, focusing on classic or preppy style. In a dry, self-deprecating tone, most recently on the Winter Olympics. She and her husband also offer all kinds of preppy goods at their e-store.
And, as there are different rules for accepting these various awards, I’m bending it all a little further. Yes, folks, this is what High WASP rebellion looks like. Think Katherine Hepburn compelled to an exasperated, “Drat!” I am going to:
- List three things I believe about love
- Write an entire post on new blogs I have found, later this week
- Feels much like blood running through one’s veins. Thrums when you lower your ear to the pulse.
- Compels one to rediscover one’s infancy, burying one’s head and breathing in.
- Causes dreadful missing in absence, but gladness in return.
And, for those of Chinese heritage, or anyone else celebrating, Gong Xi Fa Cai and/or Gong Hay Fat Choy! For a personal telling of Chinese New Year traditions, read Joyce Lau’s post. Thank you all.
