Since there’s never enough blog awards to go around, one of our number has graciously created yet another one to be shared.  Cordelia’s Mom felt that there should be a badge to acknowledge visits and comments (to her site), so she produced the Enthusiasm Award.  Only posting for about six months, she’s obviously more computer-savvy than me.  I only things I’ve created are chaos and confusion.

She and I both use a “That’s Life” tag regularly.  Whenever I check WordPress to “See what others are writing about,” I often find the most recent of her cute posts.  If you’ve still got a bit of free time, and don’t mind explaining to the nice officer what you’re doing, peering over the blog-fence, click on the link above and possibly be entranced and entertained.

Talk about no good deed going unpunished….  I would occasionally drop in and leave some erudite comments.  The next thing I know, she’s gone all Fatal Attraction on me and I’m on “A List!”  “Also known as – known to police – may be unarmed and dumber than advertised – known associates, Tickle Me Elmo and Bart Simpson.”

Her inspiration for this award was a comment she received on an early post, within five minutes of putting it up.  I’ve never had one that quickly.  I did get a response within fifteen minutes one night, from one of my semi-regulars.  While I am often up (and sometimes posting) at unreasonable hours, he is afflicted with a medical condition similar to the wife’s Fibromyalgia.  The only reason I got a quick response was because he couldn’t sleep.  After reading my stuff, he quickly dozed off.

About two years ago, I received the similar Readers Appreciation Award, for making too free with my opinions.  Taking inspiration from Cordelia’s Mom, I am not notifying any of my victims.  Those who show up here, find their name garishly displayed, and wish to partake of a tiny slice of the Fifteen Minutes of Fame – grab a copy, and go Do Unto Others.  Those who just took the blue pill and woke up here, are also welcome to indulge – don’t say I didn’t warn you.  It would be nice if you also linked back to her site, and told her what you’ve done.

Randomly listed, here are a few visitors who still take the time to make this site enjoyable.

BrainRants – Who has moved beyond the event horizon to use his intensive training in PowerPoint, to make the Free World safe.

John Erickson @ Windy City Wonderer – Now that I’ve bragged about you, come out of hibernation and take a bow.

BenzeKnees – With more ailments than even my wife, she still has time to tell me what she thinks.

Always a Redhead – How can you not respect a woman who loves guns and knives?

Ted @ SightsNBytes – Even busy getting (re)married, he wants me to row out to his Rock, for some cod tongues and screech.

1Jaded1 – Moved to Erickson’s Windy City, and is now living in Al Capone’s empty vault.

Jim Wheeler – If you want someone to explain what *erudite* means, Jim’s your man.

Notes to Ponder – Has to push her comments uphill, all the way from the Left Coast, but still regularly shows up.

White Lady in the Hood – Just a (Very!) honorable mention.  She’s a bit busy right now for posting or commenting, although, occasionally I feel a nice warm “Like.”

Let the niceness begin!

    Thanks, Archon!


  2. Thank you. Guns and knives, yes I do enjoy them.


  3. Aw, shucks! I believe I’m blushing. And you were wise to forewarn your readers – while most of my posts are cute, some are a bit surprising. Keep reading!

    Thank you very much for the honorable mention! (I’m humbled that you would take the time to add me to your list). I checked out a couple of links for people I’ve never read before – you have some interesting followers – I’m glad you’re getting some well deserved blog love!

      If I were looking for a definition of what Cordelias’sMom was talking about, you’d fill the bill. You were here among the first, and still drop in to leave intelligent, supportive comments. I treasure and thank you for that. Keep on truckin’! 😈

    This is what I get for not deleting any of your posts, just putting them aside until I had more time to read – I get an award I didn’t know I’d gotten! Arrrggghhh! Now I’m going to have to do something with this! A pox on your house (TIC)!


    • Archon's Den says:

      As I said, if you see them – fine! If you don’t – oh well. I haven’t been out your way either, so I can’t point fingers. A couple of others didn’t respond either, including Erickson, again. Stuff happens. CM’s “award” is admitted self-serving satire, and my post is just an excuse to be cute with words and phrases. Just shrug your shoulders, and comment when you can. Is that pox knitted or crocheted? I’m a bit more dense tonight than usual. What is (TIC)? 😕
