Two by Two

They seem to arrive in pairs, these awards. Perhaps they've heard there's safety in numbers.Not that I'm complaining. I certainly appreciate the recognition even though I don't always follow the rules where they're concerned. Today I learned that Desert Rose Booklogue has awarded me with yet another Zombie Chicken Award.

"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all..."

I have a small flock of Zombie Chickens now. I think that's why the neighbor kids aren't leaving their basketball in my front yard anymore.... Thank you, Desert Rose!

I also learned that Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit has awarded me with the Friendly Blogger Award. Thank you, Serena!

Following my unwritten rule of being unpredictable, I choose to pass this one along to a stellar list of exceptionally friendly bloggers that I've had the pleasure to get to know in the past year. These folks have all gone out of their way to make me feel a part of the book blogging community:

Belle, Ms. Bookish
Kathy, Bermudaonion's Weblog
Beth, Beth Fish Reads
Lilly, Reading Extravaganza
Jenclair, A Garden Carried in the Pocket
Kristen, BookNAround
Jenners, Find Your Next Book Here
Jen, The Movieholic and Bibliophile's Blog
Kris, not enough books
Margot, Joyfully Retired
