The Blame Game

You know the ones we're talking about. Those bloggers with their memes, interviews, contests. You can't stop thinking about it. You keep on entering, or modifying your entry. You think about something else you want to say. You add to what you've written or submit another entry or find yourself tagged yet again for another meme.

Or maybe it's a quiz that you can't stop taking.

Or a post where the comments are fast and furious and you can't stop checking on what else someone else has said.

Suddenly, you find that this whole theme has taken over your thoughts while riding or driving, your quiet time when you should be working, your dreams at night, your blog! We (a self-appointed committee of like-minded bloggers) decided it was time to give credit where it's due and have developed this very special "Blame It On THIS Blog!" Award.

It is my distinct pleasure, along with Jenn, Ms. FA and Jami, to present the first ever "Blame It On THIS Blog!" Award to Leslie of My Mommy's Place. As Jenn wrote today "The Blame [Leslie] receives is well deserved as she caused me and many others some serious haiku grief these past few weeks as we scribbled and scrawled through the blogosphere in 17 syllables. She knows what she started and she is rightfully proud of the onslaught in 5-7-5 rhythm which began with a challenge at her place."

Leslie is to blame
For creating this big game
That spread like the flu

BTB button

This button is for you darling!

Awarded jointly by the committee formed to award such things as this.

Would you like to bestow the Wicked Witch button to someone? The rules are simple.

1. Sometimes we all want to blame someone. If you know of a deserving blogger, please submit your nomination and reasons for placing the "Blame" to the Award committee: Jenn in Holland, Soccer Mom In Denial, Not That Different and Fourier Analyst.

No one wants to be "Blamed" for everything, so please limit your reasons for nominating to specific and deserving instances where "Blame" should be given. Recipients of the "Blame" will receive the button to display on their blog along with their "Mea Culpa" at their own convenience.

The Award committee wants to remind all bloggers that they should not be discouraged if their nominee does not get an award the first time as there is plenty of "Blame" to go around and at any future time it may be deservedly placed!

2. Anyone who has received the "Blame" is also free to pass it on to another blogger, once! We hope all recipients of the "Blame" award will accept it in the humorous spirit in which is has been conceived!

I have a number of blog rants, I mean posts, that I would like to blame on the idiots of the world :) Did you send me the link to raw milk article? I thought you did, but I didn't recognize the email address.

soccer mom in denial said...

Yes AE, I sent that lovely article about nasty people who feed their young babies RAW cows milk with all the impurities and none of the fortification....

Oopps, is that a rant? Sorry.

Fourier Analyst said...

HAhaha. Love the haiku. As I told JiH, Leslie's the perfect recipient of this award--this haiku thing sent us into the deep end!

Love the new award!

I am so proud of this award! My acceptance speech is in the works. It may include a song. And I may or may not be wearing a crown as I perform it. I'm still working it out.
