Thinking Blogger Award

Jaye Wells has once again proven herself a blogger of impeccable taste by including me in her list Thinker Blogger Award favorites.

Here is what she had to say:
My favorite part of Scott's blog is when he talks about his life. He has a warped sense of humor that I appreciate. He's also painfully honest about himself, which is refreshing. Not sure if Scott and I could be related. Instead, he'd be more like that slightly nerdy but cute guy I might have dated in high school. The one I still wonder about.
Thanks Jaye.

The Thinking Blogger Award is an effort to build a network of blogs linked together outside of the usual search engines. Here is how it works (sort of like a meme):

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that tickle your grey matter.

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme;

3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative gold version if silver doesn't fit your blog).

So now it's my turn to award my own favorites. This is where it gets difficult. If your link is on my sidebar, then you can consider yourself a winner. My new policy is to keep only those that I visit and participate with, if only sparing in the days of late. But that would be a cop out of weenie proportions.

Scott's Thinking Blogger Favorites

1. The Schprock Report - No surprise here, for anyone that has been with me for any length of time. He's been busy lately, so we don't get treated with the trappings of his brilliant mind, but Mr. Schprock has to be the most talented writer I know. Why he isn't a sports writer or a humor columnist for the Boston Globe is beyond me. He has a photographer's eye for life's funny moments.

2. The Perfect Neurotic - I've been with Beth since my own inception. Speaking of brutal honesty, Beth can really lay it out there. The first post I read of hers related the story of her first sexual experience with a boy who basically followed the tenets of the four F's. Find 'em, Feel 'em, (you know what)'em, and Forget 'em. I can't stress enough that, when Beth gets in that mood, no matter the length of the post, you will be glued to your seat.

3. Magnetbabe - Natalie will someday be a Nobel Peace Price winning scientist. Sure, today she is but a student, but watch out for this one. She writes from the heart, whether about caring for stray dumpster kitties or a good friend that she recently lost to cancer. Natalie has the word power to make me regret the loss of a man I have never met.

4. Meanderings in Hicksville - Feel free to reuse this one Mr. Schprock, as Trina is the author of his top shelf blog. And it's no wonder. Trina creates phrases that have heft of popular expression, and has a personality that leaps from the screen. How she does it day after day is a mystery to me. Perhaps Trina is really a panel of writers under common direction.

5. Zombieslayer - Recently back in the game, Zombie is all about political incorrectness and spirited debate, but ever the consummate gentleman. Do not let the look of his avatar fool you. He is a deep thinker, and has my vote should he ever run for office.

There are so many more, I promise you.

Now, I'm off to the Big Apple Circus and am almost out of time. Sorry if some of my tributes seemed rushed. But, you know, they were.

Hi Scott,
Thanks so much for stopping in at my site and supporting my love of FNL's. There hasn't been one single disappointing episode, not one character I don't want to see! Congrats on Jaye's award. I'll be back to read more.

Jada's Gigi said...

Congrats on this definitley deserved it..:) So I guess Easter weekend was a bust??? :)

Toni Anderson said...

I must visit your links. :) Have a great weekend.

The Zombieslayer said...

Thanks Scott. I've always respected your opinions, so that means a lot to me. This weekend, I'll have to pay the other four a visit.

Beth said...

Wow, Scott, thank you so much. I truly felt honored by not only the nod, but what you wrote. Isn't it strange how close we all become in some strange, mystical way? I mean, we're all tied together without really knowing one another. Yet I feel I know certain bloggers more deeply than family.

mr. schprock said...

You like me! You really like me!

Even though you went ahead and wrote extra EXTRA nice things about me, I'm still only paying you the 20 bucks we agreed upon.

Congratulations on your award, Scott. Well deserved.

magnetbabe said...

Congratulations and thank you! I am very honored and touched that you thought of little 'ol me. I can't wait to see who else is getting this, maybe I'll make some new friends!

Kathleen said...

Too true about Schprockie, Beth and Trinamick. My day is incomplete without them.

I'm not dissing your other two choices, I've just never read them. I think, perhaps, that will have to change, since you recommend them so highly.

Congrats...I'm in agreement with jada's gigi, you certainly do deserve it. Thanks for sharing yourself with us. :)
