It's the first award I've received for my work at The Wheel, and to show my appreciation, I decided the first thing I'd do was demonstrate my versatility. Behold:
|Before: ||After: |
Anyway, the award also came with a set of rules to which I'm supposed to adhere. And that's where I stop playing along.
Rules. They're all well and good in some situations, but I pretty much ignore any rule contrived just to spread a meme. A few examples:
|Forwarded surveys||Answer 21 questions about myself, then send to 21 friends||I don't answer any question seriously, then only send it to those who sent it to me|
|Chain letters||Send to 10 friends, or never find true love||I send it out, but only after converting it into a Mad-Lib|
|Certain dances||Do the exact same moves as everyone else at the exact same time, because we said so||I avoid them like the plague avoids them1|
The first couple rules were fine. Thank the person who gave you the award. Post the award. You know, that sort of thing. But then I got to rule #3:
Nominate 15 other bloggers to pass the luv.First of all, if I'm going to pass along a misspelled word, it's going to be a misspelled word of my choosing, such as "sammich" or "Canadia." And secondly, it's too hard to pick which 15 bloggers to give this award. Instead, I'll fall back on my versatility once again:
Nominate 15 other bloggers to pass theWho am I nominating? You. That's right! If you're among the first 15 to read this, I've just nominated you for an all-expense paid trip to Paris!2 Just think about it: la Tour Eiffel (the Eiffel tower), la Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris (the Cathedral of Notre Dame), and l'Arc de Triomphe (the Lark of Triumph) are all now within your grasp.
I know what you're thinking, and: You're welcome.
1 Okay, so I may have inadvertently been pulled into a conga line once or twice. And I've done the Hokey Pokey. But, in my defense, so has the plague.
2 All expenses paid by you, the aforementioned blogger.
