premios_dardoOnce again, my friend Darcknyt has passed along an award to me, Sherri Blossoms. I think he must like me or something. I think he must be the only one who likes me, because despite my average 3 comments per post, he's the only one who ever awards me anything. Why do the rest of you pretend to like me?

Just kidding. Hahaha, funny, huh? (Please don't leave.)

Here is what he said about me:
Sherri’s a wide-eyed innocent despite nearly four decades of living life on Earth, and she traipses through the meadow of the world with wide-eyes locked up, toward the sky.  The occasional step into the manure littering the entire place doesn’t deter her long … only long enough to clean it off and keep going.

Dude, thanks for telling everybody I'm old. Hahaha, just kidding. (What is wrong with me today?) What I'd really like to thank you for is your appreciation and support. I hope I give at least as much as I get.

I looked around on Google (which for some reason always comes out Goggle first) for the origins and meaning of the Premios Dardo Award, and I found a guy (girl?) who had already done the research for me here, if you're interested. On that site, there is a rough translation of the original text which reads:
The Dart Awards Ceremony I 2008 appears among a large list of prestigious awards in the world of literature, and recognizes the values that each blogger shows each day in their efforts to convey cultural ethical, literary, personal, etc. values… in short, it demonstrates his creativity through his vibrant thoughts, which remain innate within the letters, torn between his words.

This makes me envision the dart of my words piercing your heart. I also envision the dart of my screeching piercing your eardrums. Please don't tell me which one is true.

I am going to pass this award along to several women who move me with their words on a regular basis.

  • Claudia, even though she hasn't blogged much lately she has a good reason and still deserves to be recognized.

  • Angela, who often blogs what I needed to hear that day.

  • Marta, who has a way of hitting the nostalgia center of my brain with snippets of her own past.

  • [ETA]Vanessa, who already has an award but deserves one from me, too. She makes me laugh on a daily basis.

Pass it along or don't, ladies, but know that you are appreciated.

  1. Hey, congratula -- oh, wait. Nevermind.

  2. Hey, thanks for the link! For the record, I'm a guy, though my wife does post on the same blog from time to time, and in fact helped me with that translation.

  3. I'd give you awards too, if I ever got any - but the ones I have gotten have either been from you or from Darc. He always tags you first.

    And I only pretend to like you because I'm trying to be cool. ;)

    Love ya hon, and congrats, you deserve it. :D

  4. You are good to me. Thank you. I admit that I like getting awards, but then I feel all weird and rarely pass them on or post them... I don't know why. I won a poetry award in school. When I got home I tried to hide the award in the back of my closet. Unfortunately my dad insisted on putting it up in his room. I waited two years and stole it back. It has not seen the light of day since.


    But thank you. This award (but mostly you) makes me smile.

  5. Well, there you went and did it again, Marta, on my very own blog. :) I like how you waited two whole years to get the award back. Please don't feel obligated to put this one up. I'm the same way.

    Fal, I know! Damn that Darcknyt! You know what? Who cares if you've already been tagged. I'm gon' put you on there anyway. That'll show him.

    Hey, thanks for stopping by, Kelson. I thought about editing the post to say only "guy" but then I realized if I did your comment would make you sound weird. :-D And after I went back to your blog I saw right there in the sidebar that you are, indeed, a guy. That's what I get for walking on the treadmill while surfing.

    And DK, thanks again. I'm all warm and fuzzy. *hugs*

  6. Aww, what a dolly you are! Thanks sweetie. :D *hugs*
