I was awarded 8 "Thinking Blogger Awards", and I was supposed to pass it on and award it to 5 more bloggers. Each time.
All I can say in my defense is that the last couple of months have been really busy and a bit overwhelming.
My most humble thanks to all who awarded me. Just knowing that you like my blog enough to drop in regularly means a lot!
Instead of passing out more Thinking Blogger awards (along with the duty of awarding another 5 bloggers), I'm just going to spread out some Bling, in honor of the Dogg.
I've been contemplating some different Art Movements in history, and thinking about how various bloggers might fit in. So these are Attila's Artsy Fartsy Awards.
First there are the Dada-ists, who give me a view of parenting from the other half.
I love to visit Dorky Dad, Kim Ayres, Sven, Carmachu, Em and Fatman.
Next up are the Impressionists, otherwise known as the artists most likely to leave an impression of their sneakers on your heinie if you don't pull your sh*t together!
A day without snark is like a morning without high-octane java! When I need a pick-me-up, I get my fix from:
Dutchy, Ma Titwonky, Phlegm Fatale, Annie Drogynous, Special K, Nightmare and the Southern Circle of Hell.
Next up are the Pointillists.
These are the activists and advocates to causes near and dear to my heart. And they're good at bitch-smacking the pointy-headed.
When I need to get in the mood to rumble, these guys help me get my Attila on:
Did I Miss Something?, Diary of a Goldfish, The Gimp Parade, Whose Planet is it Anyway?, Saving Grace, Musings of the Lame, Amy,the Angry Adoptee and The Daily Bastardette.
I wouldn't last a day without the Folk Artists.
These are the bloggers I would most like to spend a hot summer afternoon with---kicking back with a gallon of ice tea on the porch.
They're colorful, comfortable, and I'm just crazy about them! Life doesn't get any better than that!
Manda, Deb, Miss Litzi, Stinky Paw,Texas Goodies, Blogarita, Brenda and Myron.
I just love the Pop (T)Artists! They're young, they're funny, they're fresh. Visiting their blogs is like a breath of spring air.
Samantha, Heather and Me.
Last but not least are the Expressionists.
They make me laugh, and cry and think!
If you want something to put your brain in gear, you can't miss by visiting any of these blogs:
Rootie, Beth, Sarala, Pendullum, Flamenco Mom, Kevin Charnas, Mel, Mrs. Mayhem, Mamma, Mr. Fab, Ruth Dynamite, Mary Likes Bacon! and Yerdoingitwrong!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
