Because I'm a Joy-Spreader, Basically

Today I'm going to focus on the upliftingness that is my middle name, and also gives me a chance to make up new words like upliftingness. There are two phases to my Friday plan:

First, show my appreciation for all of you, but especially a few, because I have an AWARD! to give out.
This award was given to me by Pearl, at Pearl, Why You Little , and it means a lot to me because I think she's wonderful (be sure to check out her blog if you haven't been there), and also because she was my very first follower, (other than my daughter, and I had to pay her, so it doesn't count). It meant a lot to me that a stranger would be even remotely interested in what I had to say. She's generous like that with so many people. If I lived in Minnesota I would probably haunt her house.

Anyway, it's time for me to pass this award on to a few of my favorite blogger-types. I had trouble doing this because I wanted to pass out about twenty of them, but I'm going to stick with the rules.

The bloggers I want to give this award to all make me laugh out loud. Each of them are gifted storytellers, and make me glad I joined this topsy-turvy blog world.
Also, they all deserve far more visitors - go check them out and tell them I said 'hi'.

Anna, at Incoherent Ramblings
Steamy, at Steam Me Up, Kid
Miss Yvonne, at Yo Mama's Blog
M, at Anonymouselasmobranch
Sarah, at Sarah's Blogstastic Adventures

Now, for the "rules" (I'm not good with rules, but I'm passing these on. Do with them what you will...:)

The rules of this award are:
* Copy the badge and put the logo on your blog sidebar or post.
* Nominate at least 5 blogs (can be more) that for you are Uber Amazing!
* Let them know that they have received this Uber Amazing award by commenting on their blog.
* Share the love and link to this post and to the person you received your award from.
Come back and comment here so that your link could be added to the masterlist of awardees.

Part Two of my Friday Upliftingness:

I was at diane's yesterday, and she posted a picture that reminded me of this one of my daughter and her uncle, a long time ago. It still makes me laugh.

Happy Friday. I promise to be extra edgy and controversial next time. Maybe.


Anna Russell said...

Yay!!!! I'd like to thank my mother, my agent, God of course. And most of all, I'd like to thank you Vic!

*air kisses*

Margo said...

Fancypants VicJoy, That is one cute picture. It made me laugh too, and I don't even know the kid :)

Sarah's Blogtastic Adventures said...

Thanks so much!!!!! I will definitly, probably, maybe um hopefully get around to posting it on my blog sometime real soon! : )

If not (cause I'm a lazy bum ass like that) Know that I am totally honored!!! : )

Wendy said...

What a little cutie pie. I wish I could go around life with a face like that!

There is such unadulterated joy in that baby's open smile... I never thought of it before, but why do we have the word, un-Adult-erated - does it mean we only smile in such an innocent way when we are babies and never when we are adults?

Your blog always makes me smile - Well done on receiving the awards, Vic!

anonymouselasmobranch said...

TEEHEE!!! Thank you!! I feel like I might pee myself with happiness! You, my cute little joy-spreader, have made my day, and possibly my week. Heck, you can have the whole month! I'm pretty sure my face looked *exactly* like your daughter's in that pic when I saw this post!

Kurt said...

Every one of those blogs is excellent and hysterical and the best out there. Good pick of Vix Chix.

Rebekah said...

My birth name was Joy. I think if it had stayed my name, I'd have become a chain smoker so I could growl it at people.

That has nothing to do with your most excellent post, but clearly it had to be said.

Nikki said...

Your blog is Uber Amazing which makes you Uber Amazing by proxy!

Kez said...

You totally deserve that award.
And I love that photo.
Ridiculously cute.

Miss Yvonne said...

Well holy crap on an uber cracker! Geez, I'm all speechless and stuff over here. Okay, I'm ALMOST speechless and that hardly ever happens.

Thank you so much Vic! You are awesome in a totally crotch rot way.

Miss Yvonne said...

Okay, I did really mean that as a compliment. Sorry, sometimes I forget not everyone thinks crotch rot is a good thing.

Maybe I should have just said that you're awesome??

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

*waving from her float*

*blowing kisses*



*winks at Vic, it makes a ping! noise*

Michelle said...

I read all of those but one, I think, and I will have to check it out. Good pics, Vics, you joy spreader.

Definitely a cute photo. :)

diane said...

Congrats on another award!
1. Love that pic of your daughter! I think she's laughing because her uncle is the one wearing the "blackmail" hat.
2. I have already been haunting people's blogs that are related to you by comments/blog list, so 2 snaps up for me.
3. I tagged you today. Don't be mad, but my post turned out to be really emotional, so I'm leaving it to you to lift us up where we belong.

Cute picture.

LiLu said...

What I would give to feel the sheer joy on that little girl's face.

Oh, right. That's how I feel every time I fart.


Vic said...

Hello everyone!!

I was going to respond individually, but it's Saturday and I was up too late, and I'm a little stoopid this morning. I read them all and laughed (you guys always make me laugh).

Happy Saturday!! Love ya.

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

Is there any way to harness and bottle a little of your daughter's excitement in that photo? I want to dab some behind my ears a little every day.

The Jules said...

Lol at the photo!

Mandy's Kidding said...

I'm going to have to snoop around a few of those...thanks for pointing the way!
