Wow! For me?

A while ago Heather J at Age 30- A Year of Books and Brigindo of Dirt and Rocks awarded me with the Brillante Award.

I was (and am) flattered, but at the time I was incredibly busy (and without internet access). So, I never got around to passing on such lovely awards. Then, recently, Jennie at Just A Girl deemed me worthy of the Arte y Pico Award and the Brillante award!

I decided that I had to pass these awards on. So, here are the rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

I'd like to nominate:

Disgruntled Julie for her super-human acts not only in the lab, but in her life as well. How she manages to work 14 hour days and make dinner, I'll never know.
Wayfarer Scientista for her lovely posts. Her posts are always beautifully written and have wonderful pictures, too!
Scientist Mother who is not afraid to write about the messiness of grad school.
Journeys of an Academic is an excellent and thought-provoking writer. She always makes me think about my position on various topics and I love that.
Science Girl for making me laugh with her Anecdote Monday posts and for the commiseration of making it through grad school.
Aunt Becky for my daily dose of snark. And she reminds me of the absurdity of it all. (Trust me, at Public U. absurd is the operative word.)
Nicky who is in grad school, pregnant, and who is concerned with the things that actually matter.

Those are all excellent, excellent blogs.

Aww gee, thanks. I am flattered.

I am also swamped, and was in the lab today from 4am (groan) until 5pm (short day) and have to start dinner soon (chickpea potato curry) before our fantasy football draft (my one lone non-science hobby -- a pathetic choice, I am aware), so it may take me a few days/weeks/months to get around to nominating other blogs.

Thanks again for brightening an otherwise shit-tastic multi-week span!

You made me cry before dinner. Thanks, my friend. I'm so glad to have met you.

(I know you got it, but pah! is there a rule preventing double award??)

Gratz on the awards sweep! WOOT!

I haven't had a chance to come thank you until now. You made my day with this award. Especially to be included with such great bloggers and writers. Thank you so so much.
