The Daily Dose

It is a happy day at No More Casual Nonchalance. R.E.H. at Ramblings of a Madman has honoured me with this Daily Dose Award. He quoted Cardiogirl to describe the meaning of the award:

The Daily Dose Award is for “all the blogs that you’ve discovered that you can’t possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog.”

This is the first time I've gotten an award that's to be passed along, and boy, is it ever tough to choose. I hate to play favourites, because that means others have to be left out. But I feel it would be cowardly to shirk this duty, as a member of the blogging community, so I have chosen three bloggers to pass this award along to.

Jameil at Jameil, Et Cetera: Exercises in Fabulosity is a Daily Dose bursting with energy. She often posts late at night, and I'll read her blog first thing in the morning, to wake me up. Definitely a stimulant!

Maxie at This Is Not My Life is another unmissable Daily Dose. There's something about Maxie that's always bubbly and charismatic, even when she claims she's having a bad day. I'd say that she's a mood enhancer.

The Ex at Ex-Everything has a writing style that I love. She's smart, witty, and droll. Comparable to very good, black coffee.

Now that that's done, I plan for the rest of the day to be all about this:

That's me on the sofa with my feet up and with my favourite cozy slippers on. Here's a close-up of my slippers, because I'm in love with them and I want to share that love with the whole world:

Aren't they the cutest? Yes they are! Yes they are!

Congrats on the award, that REH is a good guy!

I think I'm in love with your slippers too! Can I come over and share them with you??!! ;)

R.E.H. said...

Those slippers are indeed cute!

Now, I'll have to check out those new blogs.

awwwwwwwwww!! yay!! and thanks! (there's that stimulant... lol)

The Ex said...

Oh my goodness, THANK YOU Spark! I'm highly honored to be compared to good, black coffee. And droll? Totally my favorite adjective for myself.

Warped Mind of Ron said...

LOL.. How did you know I have a blue slipper fetish!!

Maxie said...

Thank you sooooo much! You are the best! mwah :-)

Sparkling Red said...

Leighann: Okay, you take the right one and I'll take the left. Then every half hour, we'll switch.

R.E.H.: Why thank you! And happy reading.

Jameil: It's my pleasure. ;-)

The Ex: You're most welcome. :-)

Warped Mind of Ron: A blue slipper fetish? That is warped. ;-)

Maxie: *blowing kisses*

Aurora said...

I LOVE your slippers. I really do. You must post about them some day soon. And congratulations on your award :-D

Nicole said...

Well deserved award :D!

And I totally dig those slippers!
Nothing better for cold days and being comfy!

Sparkling Red said...

Aurora: I got them at The Bay, on sale even. They also had them in pink. There could be some there in your size, if you're tempted.

Nicole: Thank you! I'll almost be sad when spring comes and it's too warm for them. Almost.

Karen said...

Congrats on the award.

You have soooo many plants. I cannot keep them alive - lol. You might have to teach me.

Sparkling Red said...

Karen: My plants do seem to thrive, although I don't do anything for them except provide water now and then, and pick off the dead bits. There you have it: that's my expert horticultural advice. ;-)

Ooh, I could go for some slippers like that!
