If you read a lot of blogs, I’m sure you’ve seen this floating around:
It’s called the Arte Y Pico Award.
“This award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity, and for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium.”
Twice, in the last few weeks, someone thought I was worthy of it.
I am humbled and grateful and pleased. Mostly pleased.
You’re supposed to pass it on to others you feel are worthy. But first, you’re supposed to link back to a page explaining the who, what, when , where, why of the award.
And therein lies the problem.
Every time I open the page from which the award originates, my computer freaks right the hell out. It thinks it is under attack. It’s all, “The Portuguese are coming! The Portuguese are coming!”. Walls fly up, emergency scans are completed.
So it’s not that I don’t appreciate the award. I do. I’m just not passing it on, because my computer is intolerant of the Portuguese. (Damn racist laptop! I’m putting it in the same sensitivity training rehab Michael Richards and Isaiah Washington went to. Expensive, but worth it.)
Thanks again, ladies!
P.S. My title reminded me of one of the all-time greatest songs from a cartoon (the “Gem” theme song notwithstanding – now there was a broad who was truly outrageous. Not like that poseur Strawberry Shortcake). Enjoy.
