I must be good at MS; I keep getting awards.

Not everything about Multiple Sclerosis is bad. I've got some perks I can only thank my MS for...opening up a whole new world of cyber friends, and getting to use the blue spot when parking.

As for the former, I had a once-in-a-blue-moon, all-the-planets-aligned, good-hair-day type of experience today. I got TWO (2, yep you read that right) awards for my blog on the very same day. Sally Fields, quit hogging the microphone because I have to shout out to these folks who love me.

First (because I got this one first) I got this pretty award from Danielle who's been a cyber friend since long before I ever got over thinking "blog" was a funny word and actually started using it as a verb.(or is it a noun? Because I blog my blog, so I'm confused.)

Now, Danielle is an artist who dabbles in altered art and blogs about it. She's really very good although she doesn't give herself credit for it. She blogs in a whole different blogosphere from the MSers I know, so here we have the potential for the two cyber worlds to collide and artists will mingle with MSers and find out, in the process, that there are some MSers who are great artists while maybe there is an artist or three out there who also happen to have MS. The two worlds could create some great cross over friendships...

The "You Make My Day" award...
The rules for the "You Make My Day" award are to re-present it to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness, inspiration and make you feel happy about blog land. Let them know through e-mail or by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times, and if you do, consider yourself really, really loved. So to pass it on and keep the love going ~ here are 10 of the 100's of blogs that keep me inspired and bring a smile to my face. Please check them out when you have a few minutes...perhaps there are some new friends to be made!

Here are 10, (in no particular order and I may be double "awarding" them since I don't know a whole heck of a lot of bloggers and have to give out the other award as well):

For always making me smile, often making me ponder things I hadn't thought of, and sometimes spew my drink on my monitor:

But wait! There's more! Act within the next ten minutes and... (oh, wait, I thought this was an infomercial for a second). Since all this link copying and pasting is taxing my brain and fingers, you previously mentioned award recipients are now the proud owners of this next award as well....

The "I Less Than Three Your Blog" Award (<3)
Do you know it took me forever to figure out that was a sideways heart? (I mean, before Lisa @ Brass and Ivory presented the explanatory award).

But! Added to the above list of recipients, I'm going to add Danielle of My Little Corner... since it's nice to have something to give a person who gave you an award out of the blue, and I really do Less Than 3 your blog, Danielle! <3 that all this back patting is through and we have sufficiently intermingled the art world with the MS world for a's back to the regularly scheduled tidbits about being a labrat from here on out since I know that's what most of you have come to expect.

Thanks for playing!

Until next time ~ May you be relapse-free or at least having a good day!
