Awww…dayum…

As one might have gathered, I’ve been in a world-class funk the last few days (though I did just give myself a chuckle at a typo I made trying to type “funk” the first time). I have a variety of reasons, many of which are TMI…and some of which are just…ugh.

Not least of which, the kick-assedness that is Sea Anemone Amy, aka Yarn Enabler Amy, is moving way the hell back to Galveston. I’m thrilled that she was able to escape her yucky job for a great brand new one, but DAMMIT my bestest local pal farther away DAMMIT!

So when I visited tonight to see her tell the story to the blogosphere at large, I was not surprised to see that someone had nominated her for this:

But you see, that’s not here because I just nicked it; it’s here because Amy nominated me today. So here I was, enjoying a perfectly good wallow, planning a pity party, Grumpytown population: me, and I go and I’m all ready to mope all over Sea Anemone Knits, and instead…I melt into a puddle of grateful.

Well, OK…maybe I still moped a little. But it’s hard to keep a grouchy countenance in the face of such…niceness. Seriously: friendship means everything, and the day-to-day things matter more than we know. But when somebody tells the world that you rock – well, that just sets
things spinning a lot differently.

So thank you, my favorite Yarn Enabler…and may the next step on your path be the best ever. (But I’m still going to miss you, dammit.)

***

And in honor of the award’s spirit, my RGB mad props go out to Sharon of Sharon’s Knitknacks, the first knitblogger I ever read and still one of my very favorites; and Colleen of The Pretty Pear, a repository of awesome knowledge on good-looking plus-sized clothes and fashion. (Not that there aren’t many more…just that most of the rest I know have been nominated already!)
