Jill: Should we start the week with some ‘thank you’s’?
Lill: I always like being thanked and am pleased you’re choosing this bright Monday morning to publicly declare your appreciation of me after so many years of friendship.
Jill: Erm…I meant that we should thank the two fabulous bloggers that nominated us for the Kreativ and Inspirational Blogger Awards….
Lill: Oh sure, them too.
Jill: The Happy Runner and her inspirational blog on running in London and living healthy has nominated us for the Kreativ Blogger Award.
Lill: We’ve begun a strict regimen of living vicariously through the Happy Runner and feel healthier just following her (we suggest you do the same).
Jill: The Inspirational Blogger Award came our way from the wonderful weirdo whose brilliance and wisdom is captured on I’m Not Lost, Just Weird.
Lill: Ah yes, a recent discovery and new banter buddy – inspirational humour and insight turned upside down and inside out with polka dots – both amusing and effective.
Jill: Many thanks to you both – our creativity drives us and we take great pleasure in finding humour in everyday happenings. The statement we attempt to convey is a modest one, by making the seemingly mundane memorable. If amusement and inspiration can be derived from our lightheartedness (and sometimes inappropriateness) we are humbled.
Lill: *Rolls eyes* Yeesh Jillian – we’re not applying to become Oprah’s next pet here…
Jill: Hey, I’m allowed to take a serious moment every now and then! Besides, I wanted to show some gratitude and appreciation for what these awards represent.
Lill: Fine…now that we’re all bored and falling asleep on our keyboards can we move on before QWERTY leaves a permanent imprint?
Jill: *Sigh* Ok, both awards ask that we share seven more tidbits, though I feel less secure every time we do this…
Lill: That’s because I’ve been using it as an opportunity to disclose your embarrassing habits – I’ll be good this time, promise.
Jill: *Crosses arms*
Lill: One, Jill is the BEST pancake maker in the world…ever; two, the class hamster died on my weekend home in fourth grade…and that’s all I have to say about that; three, I eat chocolate chips out of the bag regularly; four, Jillian has over 30 pairs of boots; five, I actually date more than Jill we just don’t talk about it; six, I have an uncle that steals sugar packs and jam containers from restaurants…there is an entire drawer devoted to them in his kitchen; seven, sometimes Jill drinks light beer (the really bad kind) when I’m not home and thinks I don’t know about it. Fin!
Jill: …I feel like I’m learning more about us every week – and you knew about the beer, really?
Lill: No, it was a guess but thanks for confirming that you can take the girl out of the hick town but you can’t take the hick beer out of the girl.
Jill: *Grumble* …We also need to give shout outs to others spreading the awesome, which again is somewhat tricky as we’ve only just arrived at the blogparty – BUT, we’ll make some serious rounds this week and pump out some nominations on Friday.
Lill: Everyone deserves a little lovin’ at the end of the week.
Jill: Many thanks again for the nods and cheers to our supporters for taking those bribes – we know we can count on you!
