It's a major award. I won it!

Last week, my blog-buddy Wayne over at Reel Whore - a frequent commenter and he who brought me into the LAMBfold - awarded me the coveted Dardos Award. And I quote:

The Dardos Award is given for cultural, literary, and personal values in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

In accepting the award, I must do two things:

  1. Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
  2. Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.
I do! I humbly accept this award!

And here are the folks I am pleased to nominate (I'm a frequent reader of each but rare-if-ever commenter so they're probably thinking, "Um ... thanks?"):

She Blogged By Night. A fellow LAMBer whose movie reviews focus on "rare, hard to find or forgotten films." Gorgeous blog with lots of fantastic photos. [Ed. note - apparently by "frequent reader" I mean "except when I go on vacation and then don't scroll back to catch up on posts I missed in which case I'd see that SBBN already got one on February 1." Wow - that's embarrassing. But go read her blog anyway - it's still good stuff regardless of my own dumbassery.]

Anchorwoman In Peril!. Another LAMB - with a yen for slasher flicks. Funny, snarky, lots of fun.

Desert Candy. With a focus on baking/cooking and a recurring thread of Middle Eastern recipes, the posts - and their wonderful photos - have me drooling.

Half Assed Kitchen. Great recipes with not much ado hullaballoo to do.

The Bacon Show. "One bacon recipe per day, every day. Forever." The genius is in the simplicity.

And a special thanks to A Christmas Story for the post-title.


  1. Cool award! I'm honored. Thanks so much.

  2. When you said "A major award" I expected a nice klassy leg lamp. :)

  3. Thanks FM! It's a treat to discover a reader with such a cool blog of their own. I'm honoured.
