TSS ~ Praise and Awards and Pass the Amoxicillin

The Sunday Salon.com

Hello and happy Sunday everyone 🙂 Thank you for your get-wells last week when I had the stomach flu. I finally got all better from that, only to come down with a bad sinus and chest cold. Lol… I’ll take that over the stomach flu any day, though.

Thank you Wrighty Reads for the cool Zombie Chicken Award, it’s quite a funny pic and description. I passed it along to Bermudaonion, Blodeuedd, Literary Feline, Steph Su, and Chartroose. So then Blodeuedd returned the complement by giving me:

Premio Dardos Award
The Premio Dardos Award

This award is for bloggers who distinguish themselves for showing cultural values, ethics, great and fun writing skills, as well individual values, through their creative writing.

The rules are:
1. To accept and show the distinct image
2. Show the link to the blog from which you were given the award
3. Choose 15 blogs to give the Dardos Award (Premio Dardos)

Okay, so I’m going to slack on #3, because 15 awards? I might as well just point to the blogroll. I would like to pick a few who haven’t received the award and that I do really like. So, here are my nominees:

1.  Devourer of Books~ One of my first bloggie friends, also on LibraryThing 🙂

2.  Fashionista Piranha ~ She has a cool layout, interesting giveaways and her reviews offer a slightly different view on things than my own.  It’s always good to receive from those whose thoughts don’t mirror your own, it makes your world a richer place 🙂

3.  Fyrefly’s Book Blog~ Another of my first bloggie friends and fellow LTer, Fyrefly’s blog is bright and pretty, and we often match up on how we felt about a book.

4.  Presenting Lenore~ Whenever I think of Lenore’s blog, the first thing that comes to mind is her interview with P. J. Bracegirdle  (don’t know why it sticks in my mind), and the second thing is the lovely box of chocolates and candies she sent me 😀

5.  S. Krishna’s Books ~ I do NOT know where she finds the time to read as much as she does, maybe a clone?  I suppose I shouldn’t tell her that I mooched a copy of Haunting Bombay last night…. 😀

6.  Book Sandwich~ Mrs. Hall is very busy with life, and has moved a couple times…  AND I believe she was one of my very first mooches on BookMooch 🙂

7.  Just A (Reading) Fool~  unfinishedperson writes smart post with a dry wit.  Another one of my long-time favorite blogs and fellow LTer 🙂

8.  The Book Lady’s Blog~  I just love her blog 🙂

I’m going to reserve the remaining 7 until next week 🙂 That way I can explore some new blogs to visit 😉

As to my reading this week…..

I spent a week or more on Brisingr, and I’m glad I’m done with that book, it felt like I was reading it forever.  I did manage a few smaller books in, as well. 

Right now I’m about 100 or so pages from the end of The Lace Reader.  I will be glad to be done with it, because it’s been giving me bad dreams.  I don’t know if it’s because of my cold or the book, or a combination of the two, but I’ve been having nightmares since starting it.  AND I never have nightmares, I’m a lucid dreamer and if I’m dreaming something I don’t like, I just change it.  Like most of the nightmares I’ve had for the past4 or 5 years, it always stars my deceased father returning to life.  Ugh.  Not like a zombie or anything, just like he never died.   I’m sure it’s not Ms. Barry’s fault I’m having bad dreams, but still…..

  1. If it isn’t one thing, it’s another isn’t it? I hope you are feeling better! Congratulations on the award! These awards are so much fun, but I’m so bad about passing them along.

    I hope you have a great week and that the nightmares go away. Bad dreams are no fun. 😦

  2. I’m sad the third book in the series was such a bust, yet I’m quite sure it is true: I’ve heard it over and over.

  3. All the award passing I see go on is just too sweet. And I love the Zombie Chicken award. How cute.

  4. Wow, I hope you feel better soon. Having nightmares can not be helping because you need your sleep! Maybe I won’t read The Lace Reader:)

    • I think reading The Lace Reader is only half my nightmares (and that half is because of my own personal history, not that the book is terrifying. Bentley Little never gave me nightmares, and that’s the scariest author I’ve read… though I was creeped out by Wal-Mart for weeks after reading The Store), I think it has more to do with not being able to breathe well and feeling like something’s sitting on my chest from the congestion.

  5. I can’t pass the amoxicillan but I guess I can share it if you pry it from my virus weakend grasp. 😛 Hope you’re feeling better soon and that it hasn’t slowed your reading down any (it has mine, which is a sad, sad, sad circumstance).

    • lol… no, this cold hasn’t slowed my reading down much… other than falling asleep while reading. The stomach flu had me at a reading moratorium because it made me nauseous to read.

      I had to bark my pathetic, half-laryngitic laugh when I read “pry it from my virus weakend grasp.”

      hope you get to feeling better, too 😀

  6. You’ve had crummy luck with the viruses lately. Hopefully it will warm up soon and they will all be a thing of the past.

  7. 😀

    When I read Brisingr it felt like I was reading it forever too…which I kind of did
