Do It Again....

I am not generally considered by those who know me to be a nice person. I tend to be a little sarcastic, I don't fight fair (just ask my husband!), and a I can be a wretched bitch to people who are mean, egotistical or are just plain arseholes (I think RC is right, British slang is catching).

Granted, I will do almost anything for people in trouble, for friends who need me, children (even rotten ones), or for an animal that's looking pitifully at me from the side of the road

So, I was very pleasantly surprised that anyone would give me an award for being nice. And it comes from a person who is extraordinarily nice herself.

Jo Beaufoix is actually one of the nicest people I know, either in blogdom, or...what do we call this, realdom? Oh well, away from the blogs, too. She's thoughtful, always responds to comments, and did I mention she's pretty, too? Well, the bit I saw in that rather cropped picture, anyway. So, she's got a lovely smile, gorgeous eyes, and a cute nose. And I'm amazed that I could meet someone so like me as a mom, who lives on the other side of the Atlantic.

Funny thing is, I can't quite remember how we met.

Now, please don't hate me, Jo. I just can't remember if I saw you over at The Rotten Correspondent, or if you came over here with her! And besides, since you're a nice person, you forgive my little lapse in memory, right? Right?

This is the award:

She got it from Wit's End...who sounds like someone I'd like to get to know.

And it shall go with the one given to me by Rotten Correspondent.

I promise to hold an awards show next week, on Wednesday. Why yes, I do plan that far ahead. Truth is, if you guys keep giving me awards, I won't have to think up topics to write about anymore, all I'll have to do is keep writing about the awards I've got, and pass them on to other people.

I wonder if this is like money laundering. Blog award laundering?

Despite what you say, you sound like a nice person. And you played a song on the radio for me even if I couldn't hear it over here. That was nice.
So, congratulations!

Jo Beaufoix said...

Ahh now I'm blushing.

Jen you are sooooooooooo nice.
But just nice to people who matter, and that's got to be a good thing.

I mean, you wouldn't be nice to Voldemort right?

Or to people who throw things at monkeys??

I can't remember how we met either.

I might have popped over from RC's.

I do know you and RC were the first people whose blogs I fell in love with (in a platonic way).

And thanks for the compliments.
I actually cropped off my beard, bald head and 3rd ear but hey, it's what's on the inside that counts right?

Not sure if it's laundering or fencing...

Code word 'dtikymb' sounds Jamaican. Probably means nice.

Don't get too excited, even I got one of those (honest)and you know what kind of blogger I am. I'll have to acknowledge as soon as I've modified it to suit me

Do you really think Jo is pretty? She kinda looks a bit like an ostrich to me. No offense Jo.

Once again we're on the same track. I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out how everybody got on board each other's blogs. I know you and I were from Daydreamsupercollider, but I'm just a blur from there on. Do you want to armwrestle over jo? Or are we both too nice to resort to violence?

code - pyyind. pee in the wind?

Jen said...

dumdad It was a good request. If it had been a crappy one I wouldn't have played it. See? I'm not nice! LOL

Jo Thankfully, I don't know anyone who throws things at monkeys. Of course, the cool thing about monkeys is they have a tendency to throw things back!

And at least laundering sounds cleaner than fencing.

WT YOU got a nice blogger award? *grin* You are nice, you know. You try to hide it by creating dirty looking awards, but you're nice, just the same. My offer of a coffee mug still stands. And I can't wait to see how you modify your latest award. I gotta get me some Photoshop. Or GIMP.

RC Peeing in the wind??? Oh, I'm dying from the pain in my side caused by that comment. I'm not sure who'd win if we arm wrestled...but I'm pretty sure it would be you. I'm just glad I found both of your blogs!

Thanks for following Jo....I'll try to make my blog worthy of your attendance. It's a fun community we have here, don't we? I look forward to visiting your blog as well!
