Thinking Thinkers And The Thoughts That They Thunketh.....


See that shiny little award? My new Infidel blogging comrade, Slacker Mommy, picked me out specifically to receive this honor celebrating excellence in profound cerebral exercise. She said that my blog makes her think, but she declined to specify what exactly I make her think of. I shudder at the mere thought! So, in return I'm to play Haley Joel Osment for the day and 'Pay It Forward' to 5 more worthy blogs that induce deep thinking and potentially increases I.Q. points among their readers. Here's the rules, regulations, stipulations, good vibrations, excitation.............oh wait, that would be the Beach Boys. No, here's the guidelines laid out neatly in black and white on The Thinking Blog Awards. And now for the moment you've all been waiting for...........drum roll please..........here are the Infidel nominations for Super Thinky Awards.
If you ever need a word savvy Scrabble partner to give the smack down to an excessively outre opponent, Kimberly's your chick. She can work in the grandest of 50 cent words into a post about diaper rash and princess costumes. Now, that takes talent! Besides, her blog could use a little more sidebar bling-bling. (Ha! Look at me, I used the word 'outre.')
He's left, I'm right. He's vegetarian, I'm carnivorous. He's liberal, I'm conservative. He's cultured, I'm a heathen. He's not religious, I am. He has cats, I have a dog. They said that a blog relationship would be impossible and could never last. What fools! jams mixes it up with a nice assortment of music, art, photography, and jokes alongside more serious global scale topics, politics, and current events.
She incorporates an extensive knowledge of art into her amazingly well crafted posts. Julie's ability to tie and bind centuries old artistic nuances to modern day life, is legendary. The whole month of December featured various paintings of Jesus as seen through the eyes of a myriad of painters from different eras and countries. Julie has a place in my blogroll as "Mental Tesserae-Makes Me Think," and I mean every word of it.
Wowing the blog world over with her impressive photo-shop skills and funny comments. Think you can outdo NCS and her mad skillz? I got two words for you......BRING IT!
She's my first real bloggy friend. We've known each other since the beginning of time. Well, since the beginning of our blogger time, anyway. She may eat straight from a can, and sport manly man-whiskers on her chin, but she's always a lady to me. I feel like I'm channeling Billy Joel right now.


So, go forth, young bloggers, git yo think groove on, and click the honoree links to discover blog joy and revel in the extreme happiness found therein.

Mucho applause for NCS and Carrot! I wholeheartedly agree! I don't know the others yet so I'll have to check them out! :D

I was beginning to feel sorry for myself, then I saw my name, lol. Wow, what an honor. Thanks!

Kimberly said...

I just spent half an hour wrestling with Blogger and was about ready to scream.

And I did.

But with glee.

Glad you think I'm more than just a sweatheart. Seriously, means a lot.

What does "outre" mean? =P

Annie said...

You are a giver, Elastic!

I wholeheartedly agree with your picks. I think I have actually pulled out the dictionary a couple of times while reading Kimberly's blog.

It's great to have such brainy blog buddies!

No Cool Story said...

Congrats on your brand new spanking award! You Multiple Award Winner you. I have always said "That Elastic is one profound thinker, she is be thinkering!".

Aww, thanks for including me among all those great Super Thinkers. The funny thing is I didn't realize I was reading my own name! I am in neeed of raising my I.Q.
Or perhaps that's how humble I am.

Gonna have to go read Kimberly now. Thanks for the referral!

Amber said...

Those folks should be honored. The thinkers. Funny, I can't figure out why I've never been nominated for something like that...

:-)

Julie Q. said...

Thanks for the mention. Just today I awoke with the thought that I need to shake this pernicious blogging habit because it's consuming too much of my time (half of it typing in word verification letters over and over!). Then I get kudos from you and I'm all aglow.

The little dude in the awards button looks like he's patterned after Rodin's thinker - in an alternate, alien universe kind of way. Do you know what Rodin's thinker was really thinking about? Hell. Seriously. Just thought I'd pull out my nerdy art trivia one more time....

You came by my WW and thought of Toto's Africa. I finally was able to get it loaded on, and it's accompanying my son's and my Part 4 of our story of his journey THROUGH addiction. Check it out, if you wish, and have time.

Excellent choices! I've just started reading Kimberly's blog I love it. Congratulations to you on receiving a major award. You earned it my friend.

Thanks Ewbl. They say opposites attract! I will have to respond in kind. I know which blog will be up at the top in my thankyous when I do my first blogoversay post on Monday week!

Chris said...

Ah, more great reading to be had.

But first, I must finish this issue of Vogue.

I love you all, whether you be a winner, or a non-winner! If there was a Super Duper Awesome Commenter Award, all of you would take home the shiny trophy!

You make me think that I wish I was as funny as you!
