Eight Blogger Meme

I'm sorry that I've been away from your blog and this blog, but lately it's all about playing an online RPG and writing for a future issue of Astonishing Adventures Magazine. Here I am, waiting for character points to regenerate, so I now is the best time to take care of a meem. Quin gave me the honorable tag of a meme that listed me among eight bloggers that have well-written and amusing blogs. The rules are-

“These bloggers are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Wait a minute, you mean I have to give this picture to eight people? To eight blogs? How do I narrow it down to eight people? How?

And tell me now

How do I live without you?

I want to know,

How do I breathe without you?

If you ever go...ahem. So, let me try to narrow it down...

Katie Schwartz. My best online friend forever and favorite source of irreverence.

The Baroness. We're the most zen of all the royalty and the source of "Thoughtful Thursdays."

Paulie Decibels. The student has become the master. When he first visited this blog, he didn't even have a Blogger accountant and now I use his page to find new and interesting blogs. He is also a good quip-master, bon viviant, and a writer on the rise.

Sprawling Ramshackle Compound. Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Bubs, and he makes it funny too. Not to mention, food, drink, and the best "Florida or Germany?" site on the web.

Chris. He is not just about humor and documentaries, though he excels with those topics more than any other blog that I know.

Gifted Typist. She is columnist and another harbinger of humor.

Dale. As I've said before, "c'mon America, get passionate about Dale!"

Last but not least, I'd like to nominate a bunch of blogs, but I only sleep with one of the authors and she'll be angry if she doesn't get in here. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you The Missus.


Bubs said...

Well well well...

I am humbled. And flattered, and it feels good! Thank you!

Some Guy said...

You are too kind, CB. Thanks!

Dale said...

You were definitely a great choice for Quin to honour because you match the cleverly-written text rules, especially the exceedingly charming. After I look up self-aggrandizement and pretend I'm not interested in it, I'll pass this lovely honour along. (You made great choices as well!)

Paul Brazill said...

Ta very much Cormac. I have more time to blog, though, because I've yet to accept Geoff E's Mob War/mafia war invitations!!

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

How do I? How do I?

How do I...

...say "thank you"?

We are amused, and I am honored, Count Cormac.

Freaky Jewelry said...

I do not belong amongst such accomplished and witty bloggers, even if I am sleeping with you. But thanks for the traffic, all the same! [smooch]

BeckEye said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Dale just does NOT win enough awards in the blogosphere.

David Cranmer said...

Well we can't blame you for not bloggin' when you're writing for Astonishing Adventures Magazine. Let us know when it's been published. Interesting meme and I will click over to some of these other bloggers...

You're welcome.


You're welcome (this is starting to sound like Wilt's dialogue from "Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends.")


Thanks and wear that badge with a matter of fact, print it up and make a badge out of it to lord over your coworkers ; )

Paulie Decibels,

You're welcome and touche'.


You'reeeee welcome (be thankful that you can't hear my off-key reply).


Well, you know ; )


He is definitely the Susan Lucci of bloggers.


Unfortunately I'm not writing enough, 'nuff said about that. You'll enjoy those links, I guarantee.

quin browne said...

it's tough limiting to eight, isn't it??

Gifted Typist said...

I'm ....
I'm ... speechless. To be placed in such a fine list.

Humbled by your kindess which is exceeded only by your good looks (as my Gran used to say)

Thanx Cormac

Cormac Brown said...


Too much.


You're welcome, my handsome and too smooth friend.

Katie Schwartz said...

as my ma says, "Thank you, honeybuns". I'm so delighted and appreciative. Love the list you've chosen. I'm so flattered.

You're welcome!
