I'd Like To Thank The Academy

Arte Y Pico Award.

Holy Xanax Batman!!  Guess what Mjenks has given me???  (And no, I don't need a penicillin shot to clear it up.)  He gave me an award for my blog!!  Yep, someone actually reads my blog ~ which amazed me since I recently learned that my family doesn't read it anymore because they think I am too mean. Bitter?  Just a little, but that's for another blog... and since they apparently don't read it anymore, I am free to talk about a whooooooolllllllee lot of sheeet now. :-)

Back to the award.  Mjenks ~ who by the way, is Brilliant in his blog own writing and recognition of other fabulous bloggers ~ has deemed my tales snarky enough to be awarded the blogger version of the internet chain letter.  After 5 days of figuring out how to get that damn award picture onto my computer, I am ready to make nominations of my own (Remember: Blond + Big Boobs + Keyboard = Lots of calls to tech support.)

Now I have to pick one of my fav's in the blog world.  Which is kind of difficult since Mjenks (http://matthewjenks.blogspot.com) IS one of my fav's and I don't think I can pick him. It might be like the award winner version of re-gifting and that is so not cool.  Originally I was to pick 5, but I have a hard time with that since I read a lot of blogs and sharing the love is difficult.  So I decided that I would pick my next favorite blog ~after Mjenks, of course ~ do you think he might have noticed the sucking-up I am doing here?  Then I would add the other blogs I read to my links on the right.  Since I usually find the blogs I read through links by other bloggers, I think that is slightly fare. (We'll call these the nominees.)

So my pick for the Art Y Pico Award is:

DG's World by DG - My (I wish) twin in another city Blogger.  She is too funny on the snark and WAY more smarter than I am (get it, huh-huh?)  Plus, her gratuitous postings of hot photos of Eric Bana and Viggo Mortensen had me at HELLO!!  Not to mention she has FABULOUS hair and a way better life than I do.  And I am sure her family reads her blog... again am I bitter?  

So everyone hurry off to read her blog and the ones linked at the right.  Remember, it's an honor just to be nominated and leave some love for people when you read their blogs. And DG - tag girl, you're it.

yeah, I know it's not one of my more snarky posts, but it's hard to be yippy when someone gives you an "at-a-girl".  
Disclaimer for the winner:
1) Pick a blog that you think deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

Woah woah woah...she has pictures of Viggo Mortenson? Guess who just got blogrolled.

What you might call sucking up, I just call, um...well, never mind. Your family might still be reading this.

Oh, and I got it. Seriously. You're not supposed to capitalize everything in 'way'. Sheesh. Blondes.

I think you'd be amazed at who is still reading your blog...and fairly religiously at that!
